HowTo: Update Seafile Server for generic Linux to version 7.1.5 64bit

Seafile Server is an open source alternative to public cloud storage providers like Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Apple iCloud, Google Drive and Citrix Sharefile. It works on free Linux Distributions like Debian and gives you the freedom to use the comfort of a modern synchronization client, the simplicity of a modern WebGUI, completed with the knowledge where your data is and who can access it.

HowTo: Dell Wyse ThinOS Downgrade from 9.0 to 8.6

If you have performed your first Dell Wyse ThinOS 9.0 tests by now, you might want to downgrade those devices back to 8.6 again. In this guide I’m showing you how.

For this test, I initially upgraded a Dell Wyse 3040 ThinClient with ThinOS to 9.0 with the Dell Wyse Management Suite 3.0. After my tests were finished, I wanted to use 8.6 on this device again, as I use it mainly to reconstruct customer issues, and most customers still use 8.6.

Zabbix Template Net MTR (My traceroute)

A Zabbix template for mtr (My traceroute). It uses all the new features from Zabbix 4.4 and 5.0 with Master Items, JSONpath processing and Dependent items.
This template was built on Zabbix 5.0.x and Debian 9 & 10 amd64 with mtr-tiny.

Installation

  1. Copy the script file mtr.sh to the ExternalScripts folder on your Zabbix Server or Proxy.
  2. Make the script executable: chmod +x mtr.sh
  3. Import the Template to your Zabbix Server.
  4. Link the template to the target host. From there on Zabbix Server or Proxy will discover and monitor the hops between itself and the target’s HOST IP using the {HOST.IP} macro.

#virtualexpo: Create unattended Setups with AutoIt when no silent setup switch is available

When creating automated (Citrix) Master Images for MCS or PVS, you often encounter software for which no MSI and EXE silent switches are provided – and the vendor refuses to cooperate.
In this session, Marco Hofmann will show you how to write simple unattended AutoIt installation scripts that can automate installations for tools such as the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit.

Today is the #virtualexpo hosted by Trond E Haavarstein. I registered a slot as a speaker, to talk about my struggle to include apps in my Citrix MCS Golden Master Images, which I built with the Automation Framework Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT), when the vendor doesn’t include silent setup switches in their setup files.

For this purpose I’m giving an example, about how to solve this issue with AutoIt.

I you want to hear my speech and all the other great speakers, take a look at the agenda and register!
