Visio - Have you replaced it yet? - sysadmin
You said it, practically, not exact. There are differences from customer to customer.

Well sure there's differences but those go in your documentation like PPPOE creds, static ips, etc.

I think you see diagrams as a waste of time, which they are, if you don't use them correctly.

Absolutely nobody ever uses visio diagrams; and when they do they get it wrong. I was on this call once with a place in new mexico state. They had ~200 network devices with eigrp across the board. Whoever setup this network was brilliant... I'm pretty sure I had talked to this person before but they weren't on this call... probably quit? Whatever. They were using go-to meeting and there was like 4 other network people from the network team on the call.

All they did was look at visio diagrams and just didnt know what's wrong. Why did they lose this connectivity? Everything pings correctly! I just speak up afterall i was the guy they came to for help. My response was... 'lets just log into that router' they immediately reply, 'That's a switch.' Their visio diagram literally said router. I never said anything. They opened up the webgui which didnt work. They tried a different browser, it didnt work. Fucking java. I ask for commandline. They ask how. I just dl putty and log into it. I figured out their problem maybe 1 minute later.

Flying by the seat of our pants does not sit well with a customer. Lack of documentation may work in a single environment where a small team or individual knows the network like the back of their hand, but not in our case.

This isn't about that. It's about getting the answers yourself live because diagrams are never going to be right. I'm not saying documentation shouldn't be done. You should absolutely have a centralized repo of information like static ips, PPPOE creds, device passwords, etc which aren't things you should remember ever.

Besides that, what happens if you are hit by a truck and all of your knowledge is no longer available to those left behind to pick up the pieces?

Actually my above example is a great example of this. That person who had the talent setup a network that obviously the environment does need. There's no way to setup that environment with any less complexity. They had documentation for passwords... they knew how to get into the devices. I didnt need any visio diagrams. Infact their wrong visio diagrams would have been a problem. I went and got the answers myself.

At the end of the day you must have someone who has the talent to do the work. Documentation does not elevate incompetent people into competent people.

Deutsche Telekom Entertain mit dem Ubiquiti UniFi Security Gateway - Björns Techblog
Diese Anleitung soll dabei helfen, Entertain (V1 und V2) mittels UniFi Hardware an einem BNG-Anschluss zu ermögliche. Die Anleitung funktioniert nicht an einem nicht BNG-Anschluss, da hier neben dem VLAN 7 noch das VLAN 8 benötigt wird. Da alle Anschlüsse, im laufe des Jahres,  umgestellt werden, wird dieses Thema hier auch nicht weiter behandelt.
Es wird davon ausgegangen, dass der USG die PPPoE Einwahl übernimmt und ein DSL-Modem, wie der Draytek Vigor 130, vorgeschaltet ist.
