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.

Hello

 I am trying to delete a file on my   " Windows 7 home premium Version 6.1 Build 7601 : Service Pack 1 " laptop. This file is an Windows ISO file that was being used as 2012 R2 OS DVD for VM I had build months ago on VMware workstation.

I have removed the VMs that is using the file . After that I have used  rmdir, deltree rmdir /S etc commands. I reboot the system and stops all VMware related processes and i rebooted again. Yet, I am still getting the following error message in the attachment. I Have also tried both from cdm and powershell with elevated privilege where the command available.

I think I need to delete a registry entry or better how can I forced to delete the file from system regardless the process that using it or anything in general related to the file preventing it from deletion  !

any ideas  ?

Please look at the attachment !

Hi Guys,

i was recently tasked with a task, I need to find out how to lock the .sh_history file on AIX so that users cant delete or modify the file.

The thing is we want to implement RBAC and assign roles to users but we also need to track what the users do while using that role and we need them to not be able to modify the history file.

I would really appreciate any feedback and tips.

Thank you in advance.

VIDEO: THE CONCERTO CLOUD FOR HEALTHCARE

Modern healthcare requires a modern cloud. View this brief video to understand how the Concerto Cloud for Healthcare can help your organization.

i am in particular folder say abc.

I did ls -ltr where there are bunch of files.

i want to search all the files starting with file name xyz alone ignoring other starting with pqr etc(ignore pqr000.log.20170806.gz etc).
My search should result like

xyz123.log.20170806.gz
xyz456.log.20170806.gz
xyz789.log.20170806.gz etc



What is the command i have to use for that.

is it grep or find or something else.

when i gave grep xyz.* it did not gave any result.

how searching inside a file content is different from search outside on unix file names.

any good link on these commands? please advise

We have an account that when someone SSHs in to it won't accept a password. If I login via Putty and su to the account I get asked for the password and when I put it in it's accepted. If I ssh to that account I'm asked for a password and it is rejected.

Hasn't been any real changes to the OS/Server but I'm not an Unix  pro. Where should I start?

Yes, I can delete and recreate it but I'd like to find the underlying issue.

Does anyone on here have any experience auditing Mac OSX and MacOS laptops specifically for PCI Compliance? If so, how did you end up logging from them to a centralized server and what did you use? I am attempting to use OSSEC to pull the logs from /var/audit/current but would /var/etc/com.apple.authd be better? Or /var/log/system.log?) The purpose of this is to satisfy PCI DSS req. 10.2.2, 10.1.5. If I use OSSEC will I need to create a custom decoder for OSSEC for using the praudit command on /var/audit/current?

Interestingly enough I have no problem using let's encrypt on Windows platform and figured it was going to be a breeze on *nix... Running into a slew of issues.  For one I am trying to use certbot to facilitate this.  When I issue the correct commands and webroot I see it builds the .well-known folder but it does not build the acme-challenge folder.  If I try to manually create the acme-challenge folder it deletes it after the sudo certbot certonly --webroot -w /var/www/example -d example.com -d www.example.com command (with my domain info substituted of course) with the following error:

Detail: Invalid response from
   http://<mysite>/.well-known/acme-challenge/bM6ijKNrbr6Dcf3nzJdyhssFHrySeeLk-2VWQgAlWnQ:

Super frustrated as everything in *nix is always easier, right?  Well not this time LOL.   Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Hello,

  I would like to know if there is a way to create a Symlink-like file but with the difference that the file it points to gets executed when the link is read and the output is what I get from reading it.
  It should work on freebsd/linux.

Thanks

Best regards

I about 10 yrs back, there are CIS tools that we could download for free
that will flag out the date of the last OS patches.

Q1:
Are these tools still available for free download & what's the URL?

Q2:
Without these tools, how can we check in an OS (Windows 2008 R2, Win 2012,
Solaris 10 & 11,  AIX 6.1 & 7.1) , the date of the latest patches applied in the
system?
