General :: List Files In Specific Directories Older Than 1 Day Or 24 Hours

Apr 7, 2011

I am trying to write a simple back up script in python where I try to list the files that are 24 hours old in specific directories that I would choose.I read the manual of find and used

find . -mtime 1 > log.dat

to get the list of files in the log.dat however I also get the path information in that list as such

./hpc06MatlabCodes/2011/Apr/3dBoxModel
./hpc06MatlabCodes/2011/Apr/3dBoxModel/vfluidIrca10.dat
./hpc06MatlabCodes/2011/Apr/3dBoxModel/vLRecoveredSystem.mat

is there a way to exclude the directories and only get the files list.

Software :: Create Certain Files And Directories With Specific Owners On The Target Machine

Jun 29, 2010

I'd like to create a tar file on my machine to distribute software to other machines which are all alike (including, usernames, groupnames, etc). I need to create certain files and directories with specific owners on the target machine. In order to do that, I use

Code:
tar --create --owner=someone --group=somegroup --file package.tar files. However, for this to work, someone must be in my /etc/passwd and somegroup must be in my /etc/group. Is there a way to fake this so I don't have to create a bunch of users only for that purpose?

Networking :: Assign Access Privileges To Users In LDAP Server ?

Jan 6, 2010

In researching current ldap issue (not being able to do anything but log in) it seems that there are no concepts of privileges, roles, etc. that could be assigned to a user in LDAP.

I've only seen fields that deal with name, organization, etc., not with application-specific access control.

I have to assign certain access privileges to users authenticated via LDAP server based on the privilege level mentoned in the LDAP server. How to attain this.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Assign Specific Static Ip

May 25, 2011

Using Ubuntu Server maverick here - after altering /etc/network/interfaces to use a static ip and checking /etc/resolv.conf (no alteration needed) no network services were working at all. Here are the contents of interfaces:

Code:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.1.100
netmask 255.255.255.0
broadcast 192.168.1.0
gateway 192.168.1.254

I was fairly certain that this was verbatim from my previous server which is no longer attached to the network. After hours of fooling around with no success I changed the address to 192.168.1.99 and it worked perfectly. So my question is: why? My old server used 100. Could the router refuse to give a new server the same address or something like that since that address had been taken in the past?
