This same reasoning now makes HPE servers a no go. You don't get patches from HPE unless under a valid/current support contract. :(
While I love some cheaper ODMs, just because they don’t charge for firmware patches Also doesn’t mean 6 months in they refuse to support a new OS. Your opinion is valid if you never update, but it’s nonsense if you hope to update.
I definitely get your point. It's costly for a vendor to support equipment beyond the the initial release. But MS has now done exactly this - they release new version of Windows 10 1+ times a year with no required payments in site short of changing editions.
@jaredbusch Yea, I can't think of anLE ything else that would cause it either... I haven't upgraded any of the systems that i used LE on to 14 yet to try them.
I found a GoDaddy cert at a client that had a SAN that we were no longer using right now. SO I updated that DNS to point to my test PBX instance and loaded that cert onto my PBX. I changed the active certificate in SysAdmin and told the phone to provision to the new DNS name and it immediately provisioned.
So the problem is definitely the LE cert or cert process.
I wonder if one of the intermediary certs for LE from Cent OS 7 that FreePBX is rolling?
Except I have specifically loaded the full LE cert and chain into the certificates section of the phone and it still failed. So just having everything on the phone is not enough to resolve.
Right, it's not the phone side. When I installed a godaddy cert on an exchange server a while ago, I had to install new intermediate certs on the exchange server, not the clients, to keep the clients happy with the new cert on the exchange server.
So I wonder if a cert is missing on the server side, something that the older phones are looking for.
I'll fully admit I don't understand the flow here, the need for intermediate certs anywhere but the actual cert servers themselves - but I recall having to do this in the past, so I'm mentioning it in case it's needed here.
This would also seem to explain why it worked in Cent OS 13, but not 14, if either Cent OS people or FreePBX folks removed some intermediate cert for version 14.
The root software is for whole device whether the root software comes for the different Android version 6 or 7?
Assuming this is a question.... the root software is often dependent upon the device android is installed on because the software uses different flaws in the Android software on the device to give you root access.
Root access on android isn't something we normally get from a vendor. The best way to think about it is.. think of it like getting Windows without admin rights.
Now, because of the way android is written, you are allowed to install applications without root, but that's about all. You can't change system level things in Android by default. You have to break it from it's designed way of working. i.e. getting Root.
My friend who is a tech director for my kids school is having his budget slashed by a superintendent who doesn't think that much of technology. About 750 kids in the district (rural area) he has about 400-500 machines to manage. His budget is $20,000 for the year. So we are moving him to all open source. Moving from Novell eDirectory to a Samba 4 domain. Doing anything and everything to save him money.
Identity Management (FreeIPA) would be great if you want to expose the kids to Linux.
This should go in the I can't even file, but the local copier guys have asked for the domain admin password when attempting to set up stuff like scan to desktop.... That's another reason to have a dedicated scanner service account with a password that doesn't change.
I am actually at this moment trying to get a branded deal going, for a large global hotel chain and also looking at doing it for my own service.
Verizon and others do this with a Yealink. The main reason is when you sell to a business and not to IT, they've never heard of Yealink. There's no need to give a customer the desire to google Yealink and then learn about FreePBX etc. Yealink doesn't have the brand equity Polycom or Cisco does.
I was really surprised when Sangoma claimed to not be using Yealink for the design. It's a clear rip off of the t4 series design but I did hear early on they sourced Texas Instruments for boards and some chipsets that have wideband audio issues.
It took me a while to revisit this issue though i have managed to address this issue using multiuser SMB mount.
In essence, you would add the mount point to the fstab using the multiuser and ntlmssp options and then you would run
the cifscreds command to authenticate a specific user against the SMB server at the time of login so that that user would be able to see only those sub-folders/files which he/she has access to under the smb mount.
I think it's a major waste of resources. That's why most (99,9%) of Linux distros suck. Lack of resources required to make it viable and keep it updated.
Yup, this is what gets Korora. Mint is one of the few that has resources to do what it does, and Deepin. Other than those, it seems that mostly it is just the big commercial vendor systems (RH, Suse, and Canonical) that can keep things tight enough to be truly viable. Lots of good research and testing out there from smaller distros, but the solidness that only the big three can bring is pretty important.
I was 6 when I was handed down a C64, bought a 286 out of the tradin post when I was 7 using paper route money. At 8 I had a couple 286's and an Apple IIe handed down to me.
I also bought one of those 1980's portable 386sx units where it was like a metal suitcase and the keyboard folded out of the front to reveal a small green screen and two 5.5" floppy drives. I specifically remember dragging it in to a Frisch's Big Boy while my mom wasnt paying attention and setting it up by a power outlet. lol.
I agree. I've worked for several smaller companies, and they all had strick reimbursement policies. i.e. I can't have a rental car for SW next week - I have to use the shuttle. Meals capped at $35/day, etc.
I thought about staying up at the Arboretum and renting a car, but I hate parking in Austin. Instead, I'm just going to bus in (Vonlane drops you off south of the river for the same price as a southwest airlines flight) and bum rides off the local SE's and Alliance guys if I need to go to RoundRock or something. Uber/Lyft is far cheaper than renting a car and parking it for $30 a day at a hotel.
Staying at the Courtyard near the convention center (was like 300 a night).
That was just an example. I don't care about having a car, I'll walk like I have the last two times I was there. I took a shuttle or perhaps even the bus from the airport to the convention center.
Since traveling in EU, I don't mind taking the bus anymore. In general it seems safe and fairly easy.
As for the hotel - I got an AirBnB for like $600 for 3 nights.
I often do that when traveling, just skip the whole car deal altogether.
Yep, super easy. If I wanted to wake up an hour earlier, I could have caught the bus back to the airport for $1.25... instead I split an Uber to the airport for $30 total. The cost of convenience.
Had a boss when I was at my first IT job say "efficiency doesn't always pay the bills"
We were arguing over the fact that we estimated a job to be 25 hours and it only took us 19. Rather than sit at the job for another 5 hours to make the money we wrapped up. The powers that be didn't like that. I wasn't there too much longer
That could be considered stealing imo.
Happened all the time. Bid X # of hours. Finish early, drag it out until we hit the hours bid.
You fix this by bidding the project, not the hours. Of course, this can royally bite you in the ass.
It's more that you bid for a minimum.
awww... so that's how all those city construction projects work... yep this road will cost $1 million and be done in 3 months.. oh.. this just a minimum, it could easily be 100x that and take 10 years.
Of course, it is literally impossible to accurately estimate those kinds of projects. But government, being corrupt, doesn't care about fixing that process. They care about politics. So fake estimates are valuable to them, and overruns are valuable to the vendors. So "everyone" wins because the only loser is the taxpayer who has no say.
For those that don't know, even the home version has a file you can remove from the installer and it'll do any version. Once installation is complete, register it with the proper key and you're good to go.
Maybe with Windows 10, but definitely not with Windows 7 and previous versions. There was no home version of VLSC. I suppose there were files you could change, but damn.. now you're screwing with the HASH of the ISO.. no thanks.
But I think his point is that the VLSC version has long been a single ISO for many versions.
OIC, I hadn't heard this before... so I reported it..
