This issue is caused by stack exhaustion that occurs when the computer sends and receives Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) or Server Message Block (SMB) data. Stack exhaustion occurs because the thread on which the TCP and SMB data is received and sent does not have sufficient stack space to complete the call.

An introduction to Big Data – RackSpace’s CloudU MOOC

CloudU

Several years ago we introduced you to CloudU. A perfect introduction to how the ‘cloud’ works.  CloudU by RackSpace now has a MOOC (Mass Open Online Course) that introduces you to Big Data.

According to Wikipedia, Big Data is a term used to describe a collection of data sets so large and complex that it becomes difficult to process using on-hand database management tools or traditional data processing applications. Thats a great definition but its only one. This topic is too big to base this learning series on one definition so we asked the brightest minds in academia and the cloud industry the same question, “What is Big Data”? We are confident you will enjoy their insights and take away a broader perspective on big data.       Sign up, it’s free (Link)

Earlier Post

“After contacting Rackspace so that my students could benefit from the cloud university curriculum as a supplement.   I was met with open arms and personally talked with Greg Alfaro, Michael Ferranti and Ben Kepes either by phone or email.   Here’s a quote from Ben. - “CloudU is an excellent resource for anyone wanting to learn about Cloud Computing. As an instructor of information technology, the certificate provides a great learning tool for the planning, deployment and logistics behind cloud computing.”    ~ Ben Kepes

OPSWAT Gears – Manage your devices’ security remotely

Have mobile devices, servers and need to monitor these devices remotely?  OPSWAT Gears allows you to monitor your computers remotely – update antivirus software, discover compromised devices, manage threats and more.

MySQL Wworkbench – manage your MySQL installation

If you are a beginner or an expert, MySQL Workbench is a must have if you have installed MySQL.  The community edition allows you to Start/Stop your MySQL instance, write queries, monitor performance and has dozens of other features.

With MySQL, the my.conf file normally found in Linux installs is the my.ini file.  This configuration file can be found under the ProgramData folder (you have to show hidden files in Windows Explorer to see it).   This file can be configured using MySQL Workbench.   If you get an error connecting to it, go to the server instance and navigate to the my.ini file.   This is a common error when reading the configuration file.

WorkBench Status

Other features -

SQL Editor – SQL Code Completion, SQL Code Formatter, SQL Syntax Highlighting, SQL Code Generation, SQL History, SQL Snippets, Server-Stop/Start, Server Status, Performance and more.

WMIC – a little known command in Windows

So what if you needed to find out information about your computer that is otherwise available in third party programs or all over Windows?  You can use WMIC to find out a lot of information about your computer.   I’ve been using some of these for years but only remembered to blog about it after I saw a post at What’s On My PC (Thanks Rick!) back in 2011.

Here’s a quick list from Microsoft (Use WMIC thealias command)

Examples:

Here’s how to get your hard drive information -

Go to a command prompt and type:

wmic diskdrive get name,size,model

Model

So how many partitions does it have?

wmic partition get name, size, type

harddrive Breakdown

This shows one hard drive and three partitions. (above)

How about BIOS information?

wmic bios get name,serialnumber,version

bios

What service packs, patches and hotfixes were installed and on what date?

wmic qfe get description,installedOn /format:csv

patches

Commands in Telnet – DD-WRT and Tomato routers

If you have flashed your router with DD-WRT or Tomato you can probably use the following linux commands in the picture below.

Before you get started, you’ll need to enable Telnet client on your Windows computer.  Go to Programs and Features under the Control Panel.   Telnet client is found under add/remove features.

If you want to capture the information to a local Windows computer, during the telnet session, make a folder on your C: drive named telnet.  Then type :

telnet youripaddress -f c:\telnet\capture.txt

Enter your username and password.

Want to see the commands that are available?  Type ls /*bin /*/*bin . – ls will list the commands and used with bin will give the commands found in the different directories that have ‘bin’ in the name.

commands

While there are hundreds of command options for both operating systems, they are primarily Linux.

Here’s a great list – link.  (Not all commands will work)

uname -a gives the Linux version

Linux

 

Want to see a ton of information about your router?  Type sysinfo | more

This will give you information about the system including CPU, memory, network and a ton of other information.

Create a roaming profile – Windows 7, 8, Server 2008 R2

Don’t forget, the fastest hard drive without IPv6 ….check your network info here

Attached are guides on creating a roaming profile with Windows 7 and Server 2008 r2.

(Thanks to Mr. Ledlow for creating these)

Guides are in PDF
Step One Create a User on the Domain

Step Two Creating a Folder on the Domain

Step Three Creating the Profile

Step Four Join the Domain

A roaming profile allows the domain user to login and keep their preferences regardless of where they login.

See our review of Windows 8 and see how you can run 90% of your programs, virtualize other operating systems, use your network and more.

Also go and Tweak your wireless!!

Cannot update Windows 7 with Service Pack

Windows 7 SP1 is a necessary critical update that should be applied when reinstalling or updating Windows.  You may run into errors when applying this service pack.  During the update, the update may stall or revert changes.  What should you do?

Be Patient – The installation failure or reverting changes may take up to an hour or more.

  • Boot into Safe Mode with networking (Reboot hit F8 several times and select Safe Mode)
    • Be patient this can take an hour or more during the reverting process
    • Once in Safe Mode with networking, disable all antivirus software – Look for other antivirus software programs that may have been installed at an earlier date and remove these (You may have to use removal tools from the vendor).  Also look for any old installations of other anti-virus software or malware tools under c:\program files\any old anti-virus software.  Remove these with Programs and Features (Add/Remove Software) if possible.
  • Rename the SoftwareDistribution folder under C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistributionold
  • Delete any files under C:\Windows\Temp and C:\Temp
  • Download Tweaking from here
    • Select all repairs and reboot (This may take 20 minutes to 1 hour)
  • Download the System Update Readiness Tool from here
    • Run this Tool
  • Download Windows 7 SP1 (Full Download) from here
