Saya Dan PRS

Menurut seorang perunding PRS, hari esok 30hb Dec 2015 jam 12PM adalah cut-off untuk dapatkan tax relief bagi PRS. Bagi yang kurang mengetahui, PRS adalah kependekan kepada Private Retirement Scheme atau dalam bahasa kita, Skim Persaraan Swasta.

Kenapa saya pilih PRS? Dipendekkan cerita, inilah kelebihan utama PRS yang saya nampak secara kasar;

Penafian

  • Saya bukan perunding atau ejen PRS! Jika berminat untuk mendaftar PRS, saya boleh kenalkan kepada seseorang.
  • Saya tidak akan bertanggungjawab sekiranya tuan/puan mengalami kerugian hasil pelaburan atau simpanan melalui PRS.

Malaysia Rugby Union Polo Shirt by Canterbury

Yay, got myself a Malaysia Rugby Union polo shirt!

Malaysia Rugby Union Polo Shirt

Brand: Canterbury
Price: RM199
Bought at: Al-Ikhsan Alamanda Putrajaya

Personal comment:
To be honest, I feel it’s quiet expensive and doesn’t match what I get with the RM199 price tag. Why? This polo shirt is actually based on Waimak polo shirt template, so it’s not a dedicated design per se. In term of design, MRU logo doesn’t look good when being attached directly on navy color. Nevertheless, I still bought it for the sake of Malaysia spirit! And I wish Malaysia rugby team will become a great team one day.

Dislaimer: I’m not a rugger.

Failed To Start SAS Metadata: UNABLE TO OPEN/READ MESSAGE FILE USING THE -MSG PATHSERROR

Problem Statement
SAS Metadata Failed To Start on Linux machine running on GFS2.

Error message
-sh-4.1$ /sasconfig/Meta/meta3/Lev1/SASMeta/MetadataServer/MetadataServer.sh -start
Waiting up to 600 seconds for Metadata Server to listen to port 8561.
Server is started (pid 8529)...
Server is stopped
Log files are located at: /sasconfig/Meta/meta3/Lev1/SASMeta/MetadataServer/Logs

Metadata server failed to start, check the log for errors.
Log files are located at: /sasconfig/Meta/meta3/Lev1/SASMeta/MetadataServer/Logs

From appliation log (/sasconfig/Meta/meta3/Lev1/SASMeta/MetadataServer/Logs/SASMeta_MetadataServer_console_sastestmetacl01.log):
UNABLE TO OPEN/READ MESSAGE FILE USING THE -MSG PATHSERROR: File is locked, but no other information is available. File =/sas94/sashome/SASFoundation/9.4/sasmsg/msgdir.msg. System Error Code = 38.

Solution

  • Stop all NFS-related services
  • Stop GFS2 service and ensure all filesystems unmounted on all servers
  • Start GFS2 service on all servers
  • Start SAS application

Reference

Conclusion
File locking is causing the issue. Thus, I need to clear the locking by restarting NFS & GFS2 service which the filesystems are used by SAS Metadata application.
