Installing Webmin on Ubuntu 14 and later

Webmin is a great web based way to manage any Unix/Linux server. There is no substitute for CLI interaction and in many cases this is much faster. Though if you want a GUI to administer a linux server, Webmin is pretty awesome to use. At one point, Webmin was in the official Ubuntu repositories but they felt it was a security risk and took it out. You will need to follow these steps to install Webmin on your Ubuntu server. Add the webmin official repository: Edit file /etc/apt/sources.list sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list 1 sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list Add the following lines:...

Yosemite – Glacier Point Rd

Yosemite - Glacier Point Rd Snowshoeing in the last of winter snow It is getting warm and spring has come. Winter snow is melting away and before its all gone, I want to enjoy it at least one more time. This Yosemite trip I was able to get a wilderness permit and snowshoe up Glacier Point Rd. I get to the trailhead and start hiking up at around 5 pm on Friday. My final goal was to make it to Glacier Point. Roughly 10.5 miles from the Badger Pass Ski Area. Though as of March 1, 2016 it is...

Yosemite – Camp 4

The plan for this trip was to get to Badger Pass Ski Area and snowshoe to Glacier Point. Spend a night and snowshoe about 6 miles back and spend Saturday night cooking with some new recipes. Didn’t happen that way. I get to Badger Pass at around 9. Spend an hour trying to find the ranger station only to find it pretty much in front just not well marked. Walked to the front door to find some wilderness permits and alas…nada! Completely out. Only car passes. Good time to check the chains/cables. This will be a first for me....

Good things come to those who sweat!

It was a backpacking trip back for a friend’s birthday. Just a 10-mile trip to Sykes Hot Springs in Big Sur. Though I had not done this particular trip at this point, I surely can do 10 miles! Or so I thought. My pride was a lot bigger than I was. Which is hard to imagine since I weighed in at around 265. I was a big boy. Needless to say, I did not make it. I made it halfway. I spent the night by myself that night. All I could think about is how I will not let...

Hide AD disabled users from the Exchange Gallery

If you are trying to clean up your exchange gallery by removing those users you have disabled but not deleted. As a policy I always keep the mailbox around for a month (space allowed, of course) or so if management needs certain emails or anything else. Here’s a great command to use in EMS. Confirmed working in Exchange 2010 and 2013: AD Disabled but GAL enabled Get-Mailbox -Filter{(HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled -eq $false) -AND (UserAccountControl -eq "AccountDisabled, NormalAccount")} | set-mailbox -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled $true 1 Get-Mailbox -Filter{(HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled -eq $false) -AND (UserAccountControl -eq "AccountDisabled, NormalAccount")} | set-mailbox -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled $true What I recommend is that you run the first part of the command first to verify the list of user accounts is what you expect: List of accounts AD disabled but GAL enabled Get-Mailbox -Filter{(HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled -eq $false) -AND (UserAccountControl -eq "AccountDisabled, NormalAccount")} 1 Get-Mailbox -Filter{(HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled -eq $false) -AND (UserAccountControl -eq "AccountDisabled, NormalAccount")} If everything looks good go ahead and run the full...
