General :: Command Line - Automating A Task - Copy All Subdirectories And Files From One Directory To Another

Jun 10, 2010

I need to copy all subdirectories and files from one directory to another ever 5 minutes or so, with the old data automatically being overwritten with the new data. I'd also like this to run at startup. Is there any way this can be done? If so, what program would I need to schedule the automation and what is the command line I would need.

Server :: Automating Task Of Log Monitoring?

Apr 6, 2010

Basically, I go through certain logs on my linux hosts checking for anything out of place. You know, the usual, /var/log/messages, lastlog, etc. What I've been using is just a simplistic grep statement that looks for keywords in certain log files, such as warn, crit, etc., with the -i flag to ensure no case searches. I thought, well, surely there are others out there doing the same thing, but more automated. Perhaps something that can check files for keywords and then notify, via email, if anything out of the ordinary is seen.

General :: Evolution Task List Reminder (sync With Phone And Online Task List)

May 19, 2011

I have my task list in evolution (mainly so it can sync with my phone and online task list) but I always forget to look at the task list. Is there an application or plugin which periodically displays the contents of the tasklist or even better, it briefly displays the most urgent/important tasks when I login? Or anything else which automatically displays the most important tasks. Currently I have to open the task list and look at them (which I usually forget). I do not mean some kind of alarm when the task is due but more a daily reminder of what to do.

General :: Automating Administrative Tasks In Fedora 10

Jan 10, 2011

I am a student at DeVry University, newly introduced to Fedora and Linux in general, and have a project whereby, we have been asked to consider some administrative tasks that we could automate via a script.I was wondering if there were any thoughts or directives from the community on what admin tasks you guys find to be of inestimable use in automating via a Linux script.

I am new to the Linux commands but have done a wee bit of programming before in C++ and others.I have also done basic DOS batch files before.

General :: Automating SFTP In Bash With Password?

Jul 13, 2010

I wrote a script ages ago to automate an FTP transfer. This was easy as within the script you can specify the password with password <whatever>. Now I am wanting to do a similar thing with SFTP (SSH). I know that SFTP works differently and I cannot specify the password within the script - what do I need to do on the server I am connecting to to either "trust" the host I am connecting from or to somehow specify the password for "sftp user@some_host"? It's IP address will always be the same.

General :: Automating The Package Configure Script Errors?

Mar 31, 2011

Need help in doing a tedious thing and no idea how to achieve this. The thing I am after is Makefile which generates after ./configure script runs successfully. Now the thing is when we run the `configure` script it may get stuck because of lots of reasons like needs mandatory options to pass with configure, library/header file is missing, etc. So I want to automate this problems as far as I can. As I am not installing the package so apt-get/yum won't hold here for me. So what should be your suggestions on achieving this. Should I study the configure script and the sample Makefile's inside the package

Ubuntu Installation :: Task Manager Or Task Bar, Keeps Changing Length?

May 29, 2011

After upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04 all of a sudden, the task manager or task bar, keeps changing length. The individual window "buttons" themselves keep changing size - flashing even, and the space between them also changes. It is driving me nuts! The little system tray(?) icons no longer appear in the system tray, but all stacked on top of each other in the top left corner.

General :: Automating USB Drive Configuration Of Partition Table, Partition And File System

Jan 26, 2011

I have tried to automate the configuration of a usb drive with not much success.

The problem that I have is that I have a large amount of usb drives that have a partition table of type "loop" and I need to change them to "msdos". The size of the drives vary and I need to use FAT32 or FAT16 file system.

I've tried various partitioning commands and gui applications but cant find one that I can give a one line command to to set the partition table, maximum partition size and file system.

Fedora :: Automating Evolution - Is It Possible?

Dec 9, 2010

I use Evolution Mail Client everyday on my fedora machine. It has become indispensable somewhat. I am wondering if Evolution can be made to run in the background without the GUI, so it can check mails (IMAP/POP) and post delivery reminders through notify-send. I don't mean evolution-notify-alarm ... I know evolution-notify-alarm runs like that but I think that is limited to calender events and tasks (using data mostly stored locally)

I find that I get notified via notify-send interface only when Evolution GUI is on or minimized. Is there a way to get a real background version of this activity - the GUI can then appear when the Panel Icon is clicked

Server :: Automating A Restore With Backuppc?

Jan 28, 2011

here is the thing. I've deployed BackupPC in a server at work, and everything is working fine. Now, what I need to do this thing. I have a remote server with a website and a postgres db running. I've been able to set up everything to be backed up using rsync. But I would like to make the same process to restore the backup immediately in a local server trough rsync, that has to be ready just in case of failure of the remote server. What I've tried to do is to run the DumpPostUserCmd, so whenever a dump is performed in the remote server, I can have my local server updated. What I've find out is that when you perform a restore through the web interface, the command that performs it is (using ps ax in the backuppc server):

/usr/bin/ssh -q -x -l root myserver.wheretodotherestore.mydomain /usr/bin/rsync --server --numeric-ids --perms --owner --group -D --links --hard-links --times --block-size=2048 --relative --ignore-times --recursive . /path/to/restore

So, what I could find out is: /usr/bin/rsync is the command that the process runs in the server where I want to put the restore. Then the options, and finally, source and destination of the restoration. But, as you can see, the source is '.' but I cannot guess where to point that!

Fedora Networking :: Trouble Automating IP Aliases

Jun 18, 2010

My system is F13 (upgraded from F11) with all of the latest patches available. I haven't gone through and combined all of the rpmnew configuration files, but none of them seem to address networking.I'm trying to get subinterfaces (secondary IP addresses) to work in Fedora 13. So far, I have been able to configure them on the command line, but not to get them to persist on booting.My base address for the NIC is: A.B.C.254. It is statically assigned.

Ubuntu Installation :: Automating Clonezilla Setup On PXE

Feb 19, 2010

I am trying to set up clonezilla on pxe so that it will start up and show the drones in the workplace a list of images, they choose the one named after the model of computer, and image it. Which means all clonezilla settings but image need to be set and it should automatically choose default settings at 1024x768 when grub pops up. I have looked for command-line options, scripts to run, etc... so far this is what I have...

. /opt/drbl/sbin/drbl-conf-functions
. /opt/drbl/sbin/ocs-functions
. /etc/ocs/ocs-live.conf

ocs_live_extra_param=`-p reboot -r hda`

I don't need the bash for selecting the image, but you might as well add that seeing as there's almost no info online for people who want a pxe server...

Networking :: Automating The Terminal Type With NIS Logins?

Jan 25, 2011

I am running NIS in an environment that has HP-UX 11.11 64-bit running on a PA-RISC rp3400 server, with Fedora Core 2 32-bit running on intel workstations. All users use the tcsh shell by default in their profiles. If more information is needed please let me know.

Users who log into the domain via a terminal window on the workstations are prompted for the terminal type which is normally dtterm. I want to automate the process so users are not prompted to enter in the above information. My plan is to modify the global-cshrc file on the master NIS server. I had several questions concerning this:

1. Is it better to modify global-cshrc, or should this be done at the individual user directory?

2. What is the correct syntax to use in either case?

3. Will the changes made go into effect upon the next login, or do I need to push out the changes via the make command?

Server :: Automating Linux Administration Through Web Interface

Aug 5, 2010

The question that I am posting here is quite interesting as it was asked in the interview I attended today. And, honestly, I could not provide a solution. Ok, here goes the problem statement:Design a Web Interface that has three text fields:

IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:

And a button:

When we click the Submit button, the two entries must be set in the concerned files and then the network service must be restarted to bring the new IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway in effect.As we all know that these settings can be done by the root user or a user who has those priveleges.The complete web interface needs to be done only in PHP. Some Shell Script can be used if required.

General :: Freeze The Clock For A Specific Task?

Dec 27, 2010

For example,

# clock-pause
# touch a
# touch b
# convert -draw `date` text_draw.gif
# clock-resume

Or, simply

# freeze-exec sh -c 'touch a; touch b; convert -draw `date` text_draw.gif'

The expected result is the timestamps of a and b, and the text drawn to the image, are exactly the same.

General :: Find What Task Is Running On A Particular Cpu Core?

Sep 17, 2010

I am using Kernel on an Intel Core2Duo based system.

1) I have to find on which core a particular task is running on .
2) I have to just log whenever my task is scheduled on any of the cores with the cpu core number & timestamp info. I am ready to modify the kernel to do printk or some logging . I guess there used to be 2 fields called 'processor' and 'last_processor' in task_struct in older kernels which probably had this information .

So what do I do to find out on which core a particular task is running on ?

Or ,

Are there any utilities that are simple-to-use and can display the tasks that are running on each of the cores , including the cpu core info ? top , mpstat etc do not tell you on which cpu core a task is running on .
