I setup my share right, followed all the instructions, set the /etc/pam.conf entry. Couldnâ€™t get into my share, and my password wouldnâ€™t work. I found that you can test your PAM mapping like so: smbutil login â€“c username But that gave me: Keychain entry not found. Ok, had to […]
This is one of several, little, quick notes about OSOL config. I have done several installs now, and each time I forget some of the little things. Thatâ€™s what a Blog is for though, right? There are lots of sites describing this online, so itâ€™s not tough to find. I […]
Just a few quick notes on the ZFS CIFS sharing. Check the /etc/pam.conf has the smb line: other password required pam_smb_passwd.so.1 nowarn If not, add that to the end of the file. If you, check /var/smb/smbpasswd you should also see a line for your account with a hashed password listed. […]
I am testing Windows 7 Pro on my laptop and wanted to decide if I can get by with that instead of Ultimate. Well, my time is running out and I need a couple day to backup everything before I change it. Soâ€¦ I need to â€œrearmâ€ the activation system. […]
Go to C:\windows\pchealth\helpctr\binaries. helpsvc.exe /regserver /svchost netsvcs /rainstall Run that. Now we have Help and Support available again.
Notes to self: Install your system to a PARTITION, NOT the whole drive. Â I seem to remember reading somewhere that this was required. My system had 2 disks. Â rpool was setup on disk 0. Â (those are ZERO’s not O’s.) c8t0d0s0 Â (disk 0 with rpool) c8t1d0s0 Â (disk 1 we want […]
This is just another one of those things that didn’t make any sense and only partially does now. At least NOW I know there is more at play here than the simple solutions in Samba using create mask and create directory mask. In Linux, that’s how I would get around […]
Not too often would you need this, but I just ran into a situation where it was handy to get AD off an existing, but inactive, domain controller. Â I couldn’t get dcpromo to uninstall the services and demote the darn thing, because this server thought it was still active in […]
I’ve moved a few virtual machines off of both ESXi and VMWare Server recently. (was testing VMWare, which I do like.) I moved them into VirtualBox while I test OpenSolaris, which I am REALLY liking… but off topic. Anyway, once I got the vmdk hard drive files copied, I created […]
When you run mstsc.exe, the Remote Desktop Connection client to connect to a virtual machine VRDP or other RDP connections, it’s not exactly clear how to enter the CTL+ALT+DEL keystroke to login. Do this: CTL+ALT+END :)
This is a pain. For some reason, unkown even to Microsoft aparently, I reboot my system only to login to a temporary profile in Windows Vista or Windows 7. Â As of this writing, I am using the release candidate of Windows 7, but since I’ve seen this on Vista […]
I love my new Env Touch, since I can’t get an iPhone it’s just awesome, but there’s a couple little things I don’t like. Like the fact that the dial pad goes blank when entering my PIN in voice mail. I have the screen set to 30 seconds timeout, but […]
It’s possible to email an mp3 as a TXT message to yourself, but that’s not going to work for me. I suppose there are other’s out there like myself, that do not have any data on their plan. I do have text messages, but no data, so no pictures or […]
I found some info on Google searches to get WindowsÂ 7 to join a Samba domain controller.Â I have Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty which runs Samba 3.3.2, whichÂ I guess does not work.Â You need 3.3.4.Â Â Windows 7 needs a registry change: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters] “DomainCompatibilityMode”=dword:00000001 “DNSNameResolutionRequired”=dword:00000000 The above need to be added to allow […]
there’s a thing in Ubuntu called Apparmor. Never even heard of this. This is what was keeping the files from being written to by the bind daemon.
Well I just have too much fun with things like this. I don’t know where it came from, but the Blogosphere was a great name people use. I suddenly thought of Nettiverse because I was trying to connect my blog with Facebook and Twitter. I thought they were pieces of […]
This drove me nuts!Â Why Microsoft had to take something totally simple in Windows 2000 and make it a complicated thing is NOT beyond me!Â This is MS we’re talking about!Â Of course it’s not easy with newer versions. Took me a little bit, but here’s the commands I used […]
IGNORE ME This is just a test post. Â I am GETTING MY GEEK ON! Â I now have my blogs at Geekdog.net as well as 1stbyte.com setup to notify Facebook that I posted. Â Rawesome!
Man, I haven’t posted in ages! Well, here’s something I want to remember for later. Force a computer to logoff at a particular time, but still allow logons later. Using Active Directory, I think, will force a logon schedule and dissallow users from logon if not within scheduled times. On […]
