The whole crux of my ask was - the desire to buy as few Windows Server CALs as possible.
This is unrelated to the question asked, though.
you know i have noticed you and dash really communicate differently. not good or bad, just different. then you both have trouble understanding the other. from the many threads i have read with you two, that is the common theme i have seen.
I'd assume part of it is that I am highly literal. That tends to be a root of many communications issues for me in general.
yeah i think your right you are literal. i had to adjust my communication with you. that was my fault though, i am used to having to be so unliteral with my users because i would lose them that i got into that bad habit lol. i know for me, i was not explaining my thoughts in a well laid out way and that made me harder to understand and threw you off. did i do better that time?
This now works without issue, and /opt/scripts no longer exists.
Ok ya that’s where the problem was. /opt/scripts is different than /root/opt/scripts. If you would have had that in your .bashrc or .bash_profile (or whichever shellconfigure you’re using) it would have worked. But you still have to let the user know of the PATH change.
I'm the user in this case, but I never really create / save my own scripts. I just got tired of running a set of commands, every other day.
Thus the need to figure out how I could run the script, without having to jump into the exact directory from which the script was saved.
I mean you have to let the user you are logged in as Know if the change. Either by logging out and back in or by temporarily sourcing the config.
I've logged out, what do you mean "sourcing the config" ?
If you change your PATH while you’re logged on the user account doesn’t know of that change. You have to either log out and log in again or temporarily do something like
It's a one off issue we have. We have all 50+ Sites running of an MPLS, if something happens and we need BT to look at a line issue then we are subject to OpenReach SLA's. So while they are down most stores have monitored CCTV on a separate BB line, so we use this as a temp VPN connection to a Draytek here that is on a different sub net range to my VM infrastructure. So when they are using the VPN and the route has been changed on the Core switch zabbix can't ping the MPLS Cisco router as the route now goes through the Draytek. So I need to static the route through the MPLS router so zabbix tells me the connection is up once BT have visited.
Maybe this will be the Gnome release that convinces me to enjoy Gnome. :P
It depends if you were ever interested in Gnome at all.
My main beef with Gnome is that without an extra tool package, files and directories that you place in the /home/whateverUser/Desktop directory don't actually appear on the desktop. It's been a while since I've given Gnome a chance (notwithstanding a recent thread), so maybe my gripe is no longer valid.
I believe Gnome Tweak has a option to enable Desktop. But it was never an issue for me because I dislike anything on there except for wallpaper.
I know with Elementary OS, they removed Desktop folder.
Yeah, my gripe isn't a functional one. It's more of an aesthetic gripe: "why have that folder if it doesn't make stuff appear on the GUI's desktop?"
Because in Fedora for example allows you to log in using Gnome classic.
Ya, so there must have been a change at some point. Setting the zone to drop and then adding services allows those services through. Firewalld site shows what your book says is correct and what (I'm 99% sure) I saw when I initially started with the SCAP stuff last year:
