Microsoft: Don’t Edit Linux Files in Windows

Monday, November 21st, 2016

Yeah, this is definitely inconvenient, but fortunately there are ways around it.

Microsoft warned all Windows 10 users who have installed the Windows Subsystem for Linux recently that they should not modify Linux files on Windows using apps, tools, scripts or other means. The Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is part of Microsoft’s new Windows 10 operating system. It is not installed by default however and needs to be enabled by a user or administrator before it becomes available.


Windows 10 Build 14316 Comes with Bash and More

Friday, April 8th, 2016

Apparently Windows 10 support for Bash is presently in the beta phase, but this is still an interesting development.

Microsoft pushed out a new Windows 10 Insider build to the Fast Ring channel that upgrades systems to version 14316. The Fast Ring is the cutting edge channel when it comes to pre-release builds for Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system. As promised during the company’s build conference, some of the new features announced during the developer conference are already included for testing.

A concise recap of the goings on at the Microsoft Build 2016 Developer Conference …

Microsoft’s Build 2016 Developer Conference started earlier today with a keynote in which Microsoft revealed new information about Windows 10 and new features that would come to the operating system.

Anyway, this article is for those who want a single article that reveals all the important information and tidbits that Microsoft revealed during the keynote.


Using Bash Shell Script to Automate Product Test Lab Applications

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

During product development, new products are often subjected to a range of tests in order to detect potential hardware flaws and software bugs. These tests can require days or weeks to complete and the nature of the test is often extremely repetitive as the same action is repeated many times over. Repetitive power reboot regression testing provides a good example of a typical product development lab test. In order to streamline this type of repetitive testing, Bash Shell Script can be used to automate the test process.


Dealing with Bash History

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

Here are some more neat tricks for Linux users …

If you are a Linux user who frequents the command line, you will most likely have heard of the bash history. This is a special system that keeps a history of all commands run from bash. This has many pros and only a few cons. One of the cons is that, if you are logged onto your machine, someone can see your command line history. There are plenty of situations where you might not want this to happen. In that case, you have to delete your history.


Set up your LDAP server on Ubuntu 10.04

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

If you need access to console ports and power control functions at remote network equipment sites, our console server products and switched PDU products feature LDAP authentication for secure, reliable remote management and control.

So lately I’ve been covering some pretty sweet LDAP tools. You’ve seen “Manage your LDAP data with phpLDAPAdmin“, “Access and manage your LDAP data with Luma“, and “Set up an LDAP server on Fedora“. Although the last entry showed you how to get a server up and running with the 389 Directory Server GUI, none of these articles have touched on the tried and true text-based installation and setup of the slapd LDAP server. And that is exactly what we are going to do here.
