    Here’s something that doesn’t make me happy to see: [root@lava2054 ~]# tail /var/log/messages Segmentation fault [root@lava2054 ~]# dmesg -bash: dmesg: command not found [root@lava2054 ~]# sync;reboot -bash: sync: command not found reboot: error while loading shared libraries: libattr.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Ack. *runs off to find the problem* […]

  • Tutorial: Sniffing iSCSI traffic for a spoofing attack

    June 21, 2007

    Also known as “Why you need some kind of iSCSI security” Okay, after reading Himanshu Dwivedi’s presentation[PDF] on iSCSI security (insecure-SCSI hur hur hur) I decided to try and replicate one of the attacks that he mentioned in the presentation. Following is how I managed to get the data shown of a different machine. Firstly, […]

  • Submission: Ralf’s updated zfs backup script (with tutorial!)

    June 20, 2007

    The following comes to you from Ralf Ramge, who has graciously allowed me to post his script and all the instructions below: “I have a small update. I’ve made the number of backups of each filesystem easier to handle by replacing the hardcoded number with a variable. I also added some comments so everybody should […]

  • DRBD and Heartbeat for high availability on Linux

    June 18, 2007

    I’ve been trying to get a HA solution put together for one of our software projects here at EMC and I figured I’d share the configuration of these two products in the environment that we’re using. I have to write the documentation for it anyway, so I might as well post it here for everyone […]

    June 14, 2007

    Okay, so almost everyone has heard about Project Indiana right? The one where SUN tries to make Solaris like Linux so they can compete in more areas and get all the wonderful features of Solaris on more platforms. Well, I have a suggestion for you: Don’t use Java for your installer. Yea, sure, it’s fine […]

  • Frustrating: Kernel panics

    June 8, 2007

    Alright, so for the last 3 days or so, my main Solaris machine has been going crazy and kernel panicing about once every day or so, which is extremely annoying because every time it panics the machine reboots (and this machine has 3 zones that are in current use, so I get 3 calls about […]

  • Submission: local/remote zfs snapshot script

    June 6, 2007

    Here’s a nifty little submission from Ralf Ramge. It will do a ZFS snapshot backup to a local directory, a remote machine and also clone and promote the filesystem on the remote machine. It keeps the last 7 backups around. Take a look: #!/bin/bash # backup_zfssnap.sh, (c) 2007 ralf [dot] ramge [at] webde [dot] de […]

  • Ian Murdock at OpenSolaris users group

    June 5, 2007

    So I read quite a few Solaris blogs and when this popped up this morning I decide to take a look (warning, the movie that the post links to is >500 megs) I had expected to hear a pretty good discussion around the “linuxification” of Solaris and how Ian Murdock plans to approach it, turns […]

  • Not-as-simple perl script for ZFS snapshot auditing

    June 5, 2007

    Hi everyone, I’m back again with another perl script to hopefully be useful to a few of you. Firstly, the script: http://lee.hinmanphoto.com/files/zdiff.txt (formatting long scripts in wordpress’ crazy editor is a very long and arduous process, thus I’m just linking to the script in this case, if anyone knows of a better place to stick […]
