    in reply to: difference between iaas and private cloud #289430

    IaaS can be your private cloud, if you’ve built something like Openstack in your own DC. The point here is that IaaS refers to the concept of providing infrastructure as a service (whether you are the one providing, or someone else provides it to you) and private cloud means you are running your own cloud (IaaS, SaaS, or PaaS) to provide whatever *aaS to your organization. The two concepts are orthogonal, one is a type of cloud, the other ownership/service provider model

    in reply to: Sendmail rejection #289429

    The FROM field is typically populated by the client, the sendmail host only relays the message if it is allowed to do so. In short, you need to look at the settings or the code of whatever contacts sendmail to send these alerts, and update the FROM field there.

    in reply to: ubuntu in a windows server environment #289427

    Re: ubuntu in a windows server environment

    you can have roaming profiles if you use NIS or IPA and have a central profile repo set up

    you can push things out with satellite/puppet/chef/ansible/saltstack/etc…

    you can automount folders, share files and printers, you can do pretty much everything and more, but you have to first understand linux, then learn how to administer it. jus like you first learned windows and then learned the windows server technologies.

    Re: ubuntu in a windows server environment

    what I’m saying is that for a low end, old hardware, it is better to use lightweight distributions than bloated ubuntu.

    Linux isn’t windows, folder redirections, roaming profiles etc, is a purely windows technology, for Linux, there are other ways of implementing these, mainly using home folders automounted off of an NFS server

    Re: ubuntu in a windows server environment

    You can definitely use Linux on the old workstations, though Ubuntu might be overkill. You will probably be best off using a lightweight distribution like Arch, and if you have to go with Ubuntu (I can’t personally see why, but…) use Xubuntu instead

    basic is dead. windows has powershell, which is fine for sysadmin tasks, and Linux has plenty of languages available, python being my personal fave

    Re: Learning linux

    You _can_ write software that will work with ANY version of Linux, the problem here would be having to package all of the dependencies and prerequisites, the same way windows software does. This is not the way Linux software should work, the philosophy is to use as much of the readily available code as possible, which, of course, leads to compatibility problems. If you want deeper understanding of what I’m talking about google up static vs dynamic compilation

    Re: VSFTPD on CentOS – Unable to connect

    no, vsftpd supports ftps (ftp over ssl), not sftp (ssh ftile transfer protocol)

    whatever runs on port 22 is backed by sshd, not vsftpd, unless he made some serious changes to the system (ports up to 1024 are reserved on unix like systems and should be pretty much unchangeable, unless you really try hard)

    in reply to: How to replicate two iSCSI openfiler luns #289419

    Re: How to replicate two iSCSI openfiler luns

    as I remember, openfiler has no lun replication facility. you can use a regular linux host with tgtd or LIO, and have the LUNs replicated using mdraid or lvm mirroring

    to replicate LUNs between different host, you can use DRBD or something like grlusterfs

    in reply to: Learning linux #289418

    Re: Learning linux

    Well, I would disagree with using ubuntu to learn. Ubuntu is geared towards a desktop, houswife-oriented distribution, where you will hardly ever need to go into the actual OS to do things. Creating yet another boring windows desktop user is not a worthy goal, IMO :)

    To learn the internals, one should try to follow the gentoo installation manual a few times – a few days of pure hardcore learning are guaranteed, and you’d emerge with a very deep understanding of how the components fit together, even if you’re not going to be actually using gentoo afterwards. Slackware is also a good choice

    As for using linux in an enterprise, ubuntu again falls short, no matter what their marketing says, so in order to learn, one should be looking at RHEL (or the derivatives), and the RHCE curriculum

    What do you mean by “this”? A xendesktop or view VM gets turned off when a user logs off?

    in reply to: Is there any FREE VM for desktop comercial use ? #289413

    Re: Is there any FREE VM for desktop comercial use ?

    If this is really required, I would see it as an excuse for a small VDI implementation. Amazing how these things grow when implemented – give a user a personal desktop, and within half a year you see hundreds added and blade chassis bought to accommodate VDI.

    since we’re talking about opensource, I’d recommend you use Istanbul.

    any of the above and more

    Doesn’t the CEO have to reach across the network to access his VDI just the same as the users on the RDS? It’s just that the CEO has his own VM & doesnt have to share resources with other users?

    exactly. the VM is technically sharing the host resources with other VMs, but that’s not the same as with RDS

    Quote:
    Essentially though, arent you using up valuable space on an expensive server by provisioning one VM that is only used by one user as opposed to a slightly larger one that is used by dozens if not hundreds of users through RDS or Citrix?

    well, yes and no. the whole point of virtualization has been to use underutilised servers. a modern server with 128 cores and 2Tb of RAM can’t be used up with any simple app

    in reply to: VDI Vs TS #289407

    Re: VDI Vs TS

    VDI allows to:
    1. better manage and granulate the software available to end users
    2. better manage the network access available to the users
    3. better manage the resources available to users, and the way those are distributed and used
    4. deploy software to user groups in a granulated manner
    5. allow users to have different sessions with different software installed

    Simple use case – I have a CEO that cannot be bothered with all the extra security policies on the RDS SH and needs extra software, and a faster working session, as well as access to a specific VLAN I cannot allow the terminals to see. Allocate a desktop VM for the guy, and you’re done. No special GPO, no extra policies, not messing around with the terminal system scheduler.

    if your host is powerful enough, you can simply treat the VMs as if they are physical, bring up more VMs and connect them all into the domain

    Seems like the DLL itself is corrupted, I cant unregister it, regsvr32 doesn’t see it as a valid DLL
