Unix is a multitasking, multi-user computer operating system originally developed in 1969 at Bell Labs. Today, it is a modern OS with many commercial flavors and licensees, including FreeBSD, Hewlett-Packard’s UX, IBM AIX and Apple Mac OS-X. Apart from its command-line interface, most UNIX variations support the standardized X Window System for GUIs, with the exception of the Mac OS, which uses a proprietary system.

Hi gurus,

I have AIX (7100-04-04-1717) lpar with installed following packets:
bos.cifs_fs.rte           7.1.4.31    C     F    Runtime for SMBFS
bos.cifs_fs.smit           7.1.0.0    C     F    SMIT Interface for SMBFS

This lpar was successfully mounting share on W2k8 R2 until recently change on windows server. Change on windows side was disabling smbv1 protocol. Since then, there is no way to mount this share again. I have asked my colleagues to turn smbv1 back on, until I figure out how to solve this. When they turn smbv1 protocol  on, I can mount the share again. IBM does not provide any support for cifs, and I can't find any official document claiming that this client can't be used for higher smb protocols than smbv1.

I even installed samba 4.1 on AIX, and with smbclient tool I can connect to windows share forcing higher protocol versions ( -m SMB3), but this is not a solution, because I must have permanent file system mounted on aix. So this is not a valid solution.  
Does anyone have a  idea on how to solve this, or any link to official documentation which I can use to prove that this is not supported?
Or if I am trying something in wrong way , please let me know.
Thanks in advance,
Igor

Good Morning!

What does the following two options actually do for DHCPd and does it work with failover?

allow booting;
allow bootp;


Im trying to configure DHCPd Failover and from what Im reading Im not quite sure if DHCP scopes that need PXE boot will work with DHCPd Failover. I believe the two options listed above would be needed but I dont know.  If so, should they be added in the primary and secondary dhcpd.conf files or the dhcpd.master?

Also the two options below -- are they also needed and should they be added in the primary and secondary dhcpd.conf files or the dhcpd.master too?

next-server x.x.x.x;
filename "xxx";

Thanks in advance!

Dear All,

I wanted to create a User in AIX system but having only access rights only to specific folder.
As a first step i have created a group FTP and a User i wanted to use in ftp.
Also i have created an ftp access file in /etc in order to give access to user.
When i log in from web browser with the specific user i cannot see the folder user was configured for.
When i change folder to  /  it gives me access to all folders.

Because i tried to find some manuals and tips but in web all information is not concentrated in a manual.
Can someone help me with all steps needed in order to make user work....???

Best Regards.

It seems in order for BIND dns forwarding to work, i need to enable "recursion yes;" in named.conf.
We don't want to use recursions, only enable forwarding.


To explain further: we have two Solaris machines with non global Solaris zones. on these machines, we have for each a non-global solaris zone with dns. The solaris machines are dns authorative of there own dns zone. In some cases, they need to be able to resolve hosts outside of there own dns zone (for example a mail host).


i tried global forwarding

options { ...    
    forwarders { <ipdns1>; <ipdns2>; };
... }

and also per zone forwarding
zone "extdomain.com" {
        type forward;
        forwarders { <ipdns1>; <ipdns2>; };
        forward only;
};


but it seems when using nslookup to the outside world, it only works when recursion is set to yes. This causes slow ssh login's on the Solaris machines.

Hi guys.  What would cause AIX LPAR to shutdown during an AIX upgrade running HACMP, secondary node.   I was thinking that I did not stop the PowerHA services and this is what cause it, as it stopped on cthags and shutdown.

Anyone had any experience with this? Weird thing is I restored the system and performed the upgrade again and it completed.

I need to mount a directory say "/tmp/test" directory from my AIX server to another windows 2012 server. Please let me know what are the exact steps from the scratch in order to have this share mounted on AIX. Also , I need to know which are all the packages to be installed on AIX.

My AIX server:
dwh_etl[/home/root] # oslevel -s
6100-06-02-1044
dwh_etl[/home/root] # lslpp -L| grep cifs
  bos.cifs_fs.rte           6.1.9.15    C     F    Runtime for SMBFS
  bos.cifs_fs.smit           6.1.6.0    C     F    SMIT Interface for SMBFS

Thanks in advance.

I have a script that allows me to login to my LPARs as root and remotely scp files to the local server from which the script is running. The issue that I am having is that I am unable to do this with my VIO servers because I CANNOT login to the VIO servers directly as root. I must first login as padmin and then switch to AIX command line by first issuing "oem_setup_env".

Script:

# copy *.mup files
for server in `cat $SERVERS` ; do
echo "${server}"
scp -p $server:/var/adm/invscout/*.mup  /utils/mup_files
done

SERVERS File:
test_vio1 (vio lpar)
test_lpar1
test_lpar2

Again, this works for the last two severs but not the first. I tried many attempts to get the vio to work but so far still no luck. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

one example that has not worked:
scp -p padmin@test_vio1:$(ssh -n padmin@test_vio1 "echo /var/adm/invscout/*.mup |ioscli oem_setup_env") /utils/mup_files/
