Installing sudo on HP-UX

Installing sudo on HP-UX

1. check your OS and server architecture to know which package
to download. Use the uname command.
If it’s an PA-RISC 2.0 architecture, you will normally see
something like this:
# uname -an
HP-UX darwin B.11.11 U 9000/800 1234567 unlimited-user license

else if it’s an Itanium 2
# uname -an
HP-UX darwin B.11.31 U ia64 0987654321 unlimited-user license

From here you can see, the following
HP-UX operating system name
darwin hostname/system name
B.11.11 operating system release identifier
U operating system version identifier
9000/800 machine and model numbers
1234567 machine identification number
unlimited-user operating system license level

HP-UX tutorial on a Linux website? why not…

To take a break, I decided to post a tutorial here on Creating and Extending LV on HP-UX. It’s better for me to post it here so it will serve my guide once I get my hands again on HP-UX servers. This is the one I used when my colleague asked me  to check if I can find a way to increase the Filesystem  of these servers.  Here it is:

To create the LV on HP-UX server

My webhosting company have to do emergency migration to the new server with still no definite reasons and all my hyperlinks are all messed up. It seems my mysql DB was not properly migrated and web site traffic logs are not restored as well. My web traffic dropped significantly 🙁

The hosting need to point my site to the old server and still waiting for their permanent solution on this, or might as well change another hosting serve… too bad..I’m very disappointed

Sorry for the inconvenience …

10th day of the 10th month in 10th year, Ubuntu released 10.10 , a perfect date to denotes geekiness  at its best 1010101010 🙂 Kidding aside, here’s the excerpt

Coming from the Meerkat department
Some time ago a group of hyper-intelligent pan dimensional beings decided to finally answer the great question of Life, The Universe and Everything. To this end, a small band of these Debians built an incredibly powerful distribution, Ubuntu. After this great computer programme had run (a very quick 3 million minutes…or 6 years) the answer was announced. The Ultimate answer to Life, the Universe and
Everything is…42, and in its’ purest form 101010. Which suggests that what you really need to know is ‘What was the Question?’. The great distribution kindly pointed out that what the problem really was that no-one knew the question. Accordingly, the distribution designed a set of successors, marked by a circle of friends…to ultimately bring Unity to all things living…Ubuntu 10.10, to find the question to the ultimate answer.

personal comment:

Snort® is an open source network intrusion prevention and detection system (IDS/IPS) developed by Sourcefire.

Other definitions:
– Barnyard is an output system for Snort. Snort creates a special binary output format called unified. Barnyard reads this file, and then resends the data to a database backend. Unlike the database output plug-in, Barnyard manages the sending of events to the database and stores them when the database temporarily cannot accept connections.

BASE is the Basic Analysis and Security Engine. It is based on the code from the Analysis Console for Intrusion Databases (ACID) project. This application provides a web front-end to query and analyze the alerts coming from a SNORT IDS system.

Relaying to Gmail via smtp.gmail.com can be accomplished by configuring your Postfix with SASL authentication and TLS encryption.

The common errors you will encounter if sending from your postfix mail server failing to gmail.com domain but works in other domains are:

@/var/log/maillog
-Must issue a STARTTLS command first
-certificate verification failed for gmail.com:unable to get local issuer certificate
-Authentication Required. Learn more at 530 5.5.1 http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?

How to fix?

Assuming you already installed Postfix and everything works fine except sending to gmail smtps, here are the steps to follow:

1. Configure Postfix main configuration
