JunOS Upgrade

For some reason, JunOS 12.1X46-D65.4 on SRX platform can’t validate any update it takes me several attempts before figure out to run the upgrade with the “no-validate” option.

Switch to XFCE

As I wrote in some previous posts I’ve replaced my old thinkpad with a new one, the deal was to find a Linux operating system with a full support of my hardware. I just tried to migrate my trusty Redhat 6, and after some rebuild I get a “well” working system.
I love the legacy system you can always know where to find the things you need and generally they works more better than new one, but for desktop use sometimes is necessary something a little modern (kernel, lib, etc.).

So I’ve installed Fedora 19, I already used this distribution in the past till version 14 (the last release with Gnome 2), the installer is great and after reboot surprise, my notebook hardware are fully supported even HSPA/GPS card, fingerprint reader and TPM chip, awesome!!
At this point the problem begin.. and the name is Gnome 3, Shell or whatever they wanna call that crap, I even found a very disappointed twit dated 11/06/11 wrote by me about that, when I’ve tried Fedora 15 for the first time and the complaints were to Gnome 3..
By the way I decided to give it a chance, I spent 2 days, days of terrific pain, patch and random code to fix bugs (or trying to do) just for made it a little usable and finally I figured out: after more than two years still is a bunch of buggy crap.

I can only describe it as The worst user experience ever, I don’t want a stupid smartphone/tablet or clone of clone of clone of other worst user interfaces.

So I took a look of alternatives and I’ve tried Xfce: it’s light, simple and stable.

The next post will be related to the optimization and integration of Xfce.

Telecom Italia – IPv6 Pilot on Cisco

To my amazement, Telecom Italia released a pilot project of IPv6 deployment on residential/dynamic ip only adsl internet access, but on theirs support site there’s configuration only for some useless systems. So, I’ve decided to write a configuration for Cisco platform.

Usually the typical Telecom Italia PPPoE or PPPoA ADSL connection with dynamic IPv4 only was authenticated with “aliceadsl” as user and password, now with bran new credential along IPv4 the endpoint router advertise a IPv6 /64 class (always dynamic).

username: adsl@alice6.it
password: IPV6@alice6

And now IOS configuration:

– ATM inteface:

interface ATM0/0/0
no ip address
atm restart timer 300
no atm ilmi-keepalive
dsl operating-mode auto
hold-queue 100 in
!
interface ATM0/0/0.1 point-to-point
pvc 8/35
vbr-nrt 380 380
oam-pvc manage
encapsulation aal5mux ppp dialer
dialer pool-member 1

– Dialer inteface:

interface Dialer0
mtu 1492
ip address negotiated
ip nbar protocol-discovery
ip flow ingress
ip virtual-reassembly
encapsulation ppp
dialer pool 1
dialer-group 1
ipv6 address autoconfig
ipv6 enable
no cdp enable
ppp authentication chap callin
ppp chap hostname adsl@alice6.it
ppp chap password 0 IPV6@alice6
ppp pap sent-username adsl@alice6.it password 0 IPV6@alice6

– Route configuration:

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 Dialer0
ipv6 route 2000::/3 Dialer0

You can check with following command:

route01#sh ip int brief | sec Dialer0
Dialer0                    XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX    YES IPCP   up                    up
route01#sh ipv6 int brief | sec Dialer0
Dialer0                    [up/up]
FE80::1
2A01:2003:xxxx:xxxx::1

You can discover your /64 assigned class with:

route01#sh ipv6 int di0 | sec Global
Global unicast address(es):
2A01:2003:xxxx:xxxx::1, subnet is 2A01:2003:xxxx:xxxx::/64 [PRE]
valid lifetime 2591993 preferred lifetime 604793
route01#

I’ve left out NAT and other further configuration.

Remote Desktop Licensing service to fail to start

Remote Desktop Licensing service to fail to start, with error code %%-1073672191.

The Terminal Services Licensing service cannot start. The following error occurred: Can’t initialize Cryptographic – error code 5.

Sometime happens a problem with Remote Desktop Licensing services not starting.
The Terminal Licensing MachineKeys have permissions for Administrators and/or TermServLicensing  but the service starts using the “Network Service” account… Why??????

You can fix the problem adding Network Service account (read only privileges it’s ok), on follow directory (you can force ownership propagation for reapply the correct privilege tree):

C:\Documents and Settings\all users\Application Data\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys

Then the service start, correctly.

 

For further information you can take a look at microsoft KB:

Default permissions for the MachineKeys folders:

Lotus Domino server linux process 100% CPU usage

There was a kernel change from version 2.6.x that causes statistics to suck 100% of CPU, even though the system is lightly loaded, that cause a server crash when loading platform statistics

You can disable this feature by adding this to your notes.ini and restarting the Domino server.

Recovery HFS partition table

First think, scan your damage disk with a tool like “testdisk” (http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk) look for lost partitions, unfortunately HFS is not fully supported by this great tool, then you need to use pdisk or other partition software.

Disk /dev/rdisk3 – 1000 GB / 931 GiB – CHS 121601 255 63
Partition Start End Size in sectors
>P HFS 262208 1953525151 1953262944

In my case, I’ve used pdisk directly on OS X:

Linux RHEL – Change hostname

3 step for change hostname to RHEL Linux:

1. edit: /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 srv03.mil1.wide-net.org localhost.localdomain localhost

2. edit: /etc/sysconfig/network
HOSTNAME=srv03.mil11.wide-net.org

3. past into kernel new hostname
echo "srv03.mil1.wide-net.org" > /proc/sys/kernel/hostname

Or

sysctl kernel.hostname=srv03.mil1.wide-net.org

Consider a restart net services /etc/init.d/network restart but is not strictly required.

AirOS – Rate Algorithm

Rate Algorithm: defines data rate algorithm convergence:

Optimistic Algorithm is aggressive enough to move to a higher rate but yet tries to conservatively capture the fluctuations of the RSSI. It starts with the highest possible rate and then decreases till the rate can be supported while periodically transmitting packets at higher rates and computing the transmission time. The optimistic rate algorithm always looks to achieve highest throughput while sacrificing noise immunity and robustness.

Rate Algorithm selection
Conservative Algorithm is less sensitive to individual packet failure as it is based on a function of number of successful and erroneous transmission/retransmission over a sampling period. It steps down to a lower rate after continuous packet failure and steps up after number of successful packets. The conservative rate algorithm provides the best case stability / robustness, but may compromise maximum throughput. It is recommended to select conservative rate algorithm when the signal strength is low due to noisy environment or link distance.

EWMA Algorithm is trying to move to a higher rate but is continuously monitoring the packet failure counters. The Exponential Weighted Moving Average (EWMA) Algorithm (also known as minstrel) is a hybrid of the Conservative and Optimistic Algorithm. It is the compromise for most of the wireless network use cases.

AIX – loopmount

Finally on aix 6.1 ibm have introduced mounting of iso directly without raw copy on lv:

Check if necessary loopback device is available

# lsdev -C | grep loop

if nothing returned, run:

# mkdev -c loopback -s node -t loopback
loop0 Available

If the device is not present on system you get this error:

1320-003 loopmount: Specified loopback device is not found in ODM

Now for mount:

# loopmount -i /iso/dvd.iso -l loop0 -o "-V cdrfs -o ro" -m /mnt/dvd

And umount:

# loopumount -l loop0 -m /mnt/dvd

Attention: an image file can be associated with only one loopback device.

Linux – IBM LinTape driver

If you need to user ibm lto tape drive inside IBM, Adic, Dell tapelibrary, with Tivoli Storage Manager is necessary to use

Download latest driver from IBM Fixcentral:
Storage Systems => Tape Systems => Tape device drivers and software => Linux

Get two two RPMs (my system is an RHEL 5 on 32bit hardware) :
lin_tape-1.61.0-1.src.rpm <== Kernel module
lin_taped-1.61.0-rhel5.i386.rpm <== Binary services

First step, rebuild the source:

# rpmbuild --rebuild lin_tape-1.61.0-1.src.rpm

Installing lin_tape-1.61.0-1.src.rpm
Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.625
+ umask 022
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ rm -rf lin_tape-1.61.0
+ /bin/gzip -dc /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/lin_tape-1.61.0.tgz
[cut]
Wrote: /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/lin_tape-1.61.0-1.i386.rpm
Executing(%clean): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.18792
+ umask 022
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ cd lin_tape-1.61.0
+ rm -rf /var/tmp/lin_tape-1.61.0-1-root-root
+ exit 0
Executing(--clean): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.18792
+ umask 022
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ rm -rf lin_tape-1.61.0
+ exit 0

Second step, install all:

# rpm -Uhv /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/lin_tape-1.61.0-1.i386.rpm
# rpm -Uhv lin_taped-1.61.0-rhel5.i386.rpm

Last step, start service and check for the probed devices:

# /etc/init.d/lin_tape start

# cat /proc/scsi/IBM*
lin_tape version: 1.61.0
lin_tape major number: 253
Attached Changer Devices:

AIX – lpp incosistent

# lppchk –v

lppchk: The following filesets need to be installed or corrected to bring the system to a consistent state:
9a33182fe26f1beae04e59e5cb6d3cdb 0.0.0.0 (COMMITTED)

# lslpp -L

Backup the ODM using the following command:

# tar -cvf /tmp/odm.tar ./etc/objrepos ./usr/lib/objrepos
# export ODMDIR=/usr/lib/objrepos
# odmget -q name= lpp
# odmdelete -q name= -o lpp
# odmdelete -q lpp_name= -o product
# odmdelete -q lpp_id= -o history
# odmdelete -q lpp_id= -o inventory
# export ODMDIR=/etc/objrepos
# odmdelete -q name= -o lpp
# odmdelete -q lpp_name= -o product
# odmdelete -q lpp_id= -o history
# odmdelete -q lpp_id= -o inventory
# export ODMDIR=/etc/objrepos

Check lppchk -v again to see if those entries are gone from ODM

NetworkManager modifies /etc/hosts

There is an annoying bug (or feature depends on point of view) every restart/reconnect managed by NetworkManager, restore the original /etc/hosts loaded on startup. I’ve made a 3 line script inspired by visudo to manual edit the hosts file and prevent the other unexpected modifies:

File like (with +x attribute): /usr/sbin/vihosts

sudo chattr -i /etc/hosts
sudo vim /etc/hosts

AIX – DLPAR connection lost to HMC

Sometime during AIX migration/alt_clone or HMC upgrade, it can happen that RMC ID get lost or duplicated, the the rsct process is unable to re stabilize the connection.

You can reset the key and restart that service as follows:

Reset RMC unique ID:

# /usr/sbin/rsct/install/bin/recfgct
# /usr/sbin/rsct/bin/rmcctrl -z
# /usr/sbin/rsct/bin/rmcctrl -A


Then you can check the rmc status:

# /usr/sbin/rsct/bin/rmcdomainstatus -s ctrmc

OpenVMS – SCSSYSTEMID

SCSSYSTEMID (G)
Specifies a number that identifies the computer. This parameter is not dynamic. SCSSYSTEMID is the low-order 32 bits of the 48-bit system identification number.

If the computer is in an OpenVMS Cluster, specify a value that is unique within the cluster. Do not use zero as the value.

If the computer is running DECnet for OpenVMS, calculate the value from the DECnet address using the following formula:

SCSSYSTEMID = ((DECnet area number) * 1024) + (DECnet node number)

Example: If the DECnet address is 2.211, calculate the value as follows:

SCSSYSTEMID = (2 * 1024) + 211 = 2259

AIX – Mounting ISO images

There is a known problem with mounting ISO images on the AIX platform. To workaround the problem, complete the following instructions:

Obtain the size of the image, then identify the nearest multiple of 128 MB that will provide enough space for the image. For example, the image of CD-ROM is approximately 650/700 MB, so use 768 MB as an image size.

Make a logical volume of this size. Ensure that there is enough space on the physical volume. For example, hdisk0.

# mklv -y cdlv -s n -L /dev/cdlv rootvg 768M hdisk0

If the command fails, increase the volume size by a multiple of 128.

Use the dd command to create a pseudo-device. Ensure that the partition has enough space for the pseudo-device. In the following example command, the pseudo-device is /dev/cdlv.

# dd if=/opt/iso/cd.iso of=/dev/cdlv

Note that this command may take a long time and will create two dd processes.

Mount the device like a CD-ROM in AIX. Ensure that the mount point exists.

# mount -v cdrfs -o ro /dev/cdlv /mnt/iso

eToken PASS in open environment

I bought promo pack of 5 Aladdin eToken PASS units, the tokens comes with serial number in this format: XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX activated for free on the website of the manufacturer only one time of course, then used token purchased from ebay usually are unusable.

The activation consists in a zip containing two ldif format dat files, you can extract the token key parsing the text from “importAlpine.dat” file:

sccAuthenticatorId: (means token serial number) sccKey= (means token key)

eToken PASS are event based tokens, I’ve tested successfully using otptool, part of mod-authn-otp.
