Yet another bug that I submitted to Red Hat Bugzilla got fixed. This time it took more than a year – from 21 May 2004 until 12 September 2005 – but a workaround was found much earlier and could be easily applied.
P.S.: I was stupid enough not to notice that the bug was closed and add another comment today. Nuthead!
LDAP saga continues… Finally I have found something that Microsoft did actually good. I have found out that
ldifde.exe -f myfile.ldf will export the whole Active Directory structure into myfile.ldf file in LDIF file format (human readable). That is extremely usefull when migrating I have also found Exchange-HOWTO an interesting read.
I have started to learn LDAP today. Here is how I did it:
- Install new Red Hat Linux 7.2 server.
- During install
- Specify to authenticate through LDAP which is located at 127.0.0.1
- I forgot to permit SSH connection during firewall configuration
- In boot manager configuration, I have specified to use GRUB with which I don’t have any experience yet.
When I did all this, I have found myself in situation where machine refused any connections via secure shell, refused any logins locally, Result:
- Unusable machine
- Frozen butt (a/c in the server room)
- Complete reinstall
