  • “Reverse Engineering for Beginners” free book
  • Resolve Hardware Status Alert SEL_FULLNESS | Brian Ragazzi – […] I noticed an alert on two UCS B250M2 hosts in the vSphere Client. The alert Name was “Status of other host hardware objects”. This isn’t helpful. To get more information, you have to navigate to the Hardware Status tab of the host properties. Here I saw more information about the alert. It’s cryptically named “System Board 0 SEL_FULLNESS”. […]
  • Network Stack: Cisco ASA Packet Capture – […] The ASA platform has fantastic built-in packet capture capabilities which can come in very handy for troubleshooting issues. I will be demonstrating some of the capabilities using an ASA 5505 running version 9.0(1).Performing a packet capture is done using the capture command from privileged exec mode. […][ Fantastic… I won’t say that ]
  • Sanesecurity ClamAV Malware, Phishing, and Spam Signatures – Sanesecurity produces add-ons signatures to help improve the ClamAV detection rate on Zero-Day malware and even on Zero-Hour malware. Since 2006 we have provided professional quality ClamAV signatures to protect against the following email types: Macro malware, Zip malware, Rar malware, Javascript malware, 7z malware, Phishing, Spear phishing and other types of common emailed malware and spam. Sanesecurity 3rd Party ClamAV signatures can also help prevent TeslaCrypt, Cryptowall, Cryptolocker and other ransomware, who’s source usually starts as a malicious email.
  • Multistage environments with Ansible – Ross Tuck – Ansible has excellent documentation but one thing I was confused about was the best way to store the configuration for multistage projects: say, different passwords for dev, staging, production. This isn’t really covered in the ansible-examples repo because it’s specific to your project and while the documentation has recommendations, it doesn’t spell it out completely (which I need since I’m an idiot).

  • wg/wrk · GitHub – wrk is a modern HTTP benchmarking tool capable of generating significant load when run on a single multi-core CPU. It combines a multithreaded design with scalable event notification systems such as epoll and kqueue. [ via ]
  • Automate and manage systems installation with Cobbler – Cobbler simplifies system provisioning by centralizing the tasks that are involved in setting up and administering an installation server. This article discusses some of Cobbler's features, how to install it, and how to create a configuration suitable for automatically installing multiple client machines.
  • Cobbler – Linux install and update server – Cobbler is a Linux installation server that allows for rapid setup of network installation environments. It glues together and automates many associated Linux tasks so you do not have to hop between many various commands and applications when deploying new systems, and, in some cases, changing existing ones. Cobbler can help with provisioning, managing DNS and DHCP, package updates, power management, configuration management orchestration, and much more. (And you can integrate with chef or puppet)
  • Redhat I/O Scheduler Configuration in a Virtual Machine. – FATMIN – […] However, because of the fact that ESX is its own built in elevator, the Linux kernel's elevator is not needed, and in fact can hurt disk performance. So its best to disable the elevator inside your linux VMs […] Da controllare comunque dovrebbe andare anche su altre distro
  • RDP with NLA from Linux – Is there a way to connect to a Windows 2008 Remote Desktop Services with NLA from Linux?   Yes! FreeRDP is a fork of Rdesktop. Rdesktop seems to have stopped developement, so a fork is very welcome. NLA is still not in the main release, but it isn't hard to check out a copy from GIT and compile the latest source yourself.

  • Howto: Change the IP address of a Dell 4/P DRAC from the command line without rebooting the server – Normally you configure a Dell Remote Access Card (DRAC) when a server is initially commissioned. Once the card is set, administrators rarely if ever need to modify the settings. If you do need to change the settings, the server needs to be restarted so the DRAC BIOS can be modified, which obviously results in system downtime and requires a physical presence at the server console.
  • bash ini parser | /var/log/ajdiaz – In some situations i like to use INI files as configuration files, as python do. But bash do not provide a parser for these files, obviously you can use a awk code or a couple of sed calls, but if you are bash-priest and do not want to use nothing more, then you can try the following obscure code:
  • Jugg Monkey: VMWare HA Agent had an error – I recently had a problem with one hoste in a 3 node VMWare ESX 3. 5 cluster. For some reason, the HA Agent would not start after I applied outstanding software updates. I kept receiving "VMWare HA Agent had an error" in the alerts after the host came online. I had recently needed to change the IP address of the VMWare 3.5 ESX host, so I figured that was the root cause.
