  • VMware: Add PortGroup to all hosts in cluster with PowerCLI – […]
    Today we configured a new VLAN on the physical switches, now we need to configure a portgroup with vlan id on multiple ESX hosts in our cluster. To do this by hand it will cost 3 minutes per host, to script this.. you configure this in 10 seconds![…]
  • Creating Active Directory Accounts – Microsoft stores a quoted password in little endian UTF16 base64 encoded.
  • LVM Loopback HOW-TO | Anthony’s Blog – This is a simple tutorial on setting up LVM on loopback devices, I’ve used it a few times for creating dynamic virtual disks; it came in particularly handy when archiving NEXRAD radar data for my radarwatchd project – using up all your inodes on several hundreds of thousands of 15Kb files doesn’t sound like my idea of fun. Creating a virtual volume with reiserfs was a particularly handy solution in this case.
  • Retroshare – Retroshare creates encrypted connections to your friends. Nobody can spy on you. Retroshare is completely decentralized. This means there are no central servers. It is entirely Open-Source and free. There are no costs, no ads and no Terms of Service.

  • Enterprise/Authentication/sssd – Ubuntu Wiki – The sssd authentication in Ubuntu works pretty decently. You can use it basically with any directory-style backend, including OpenLDAP, Kerberos, RedHat's FreeIPA and Microsoft's Active Directory. The good part about sssd is that it can be used to log into multiple directory services, so if you have some users in one directory, and the the rest in a different place, this works pretty decently in sssd. You can use it for single-server deployments with plain LDAP with servers or workstations (where you could as well go with pam-ldap and nss-ldap), but also, or especially for more sophisticated setups.
