I have a Ubuntu NAS set up with two 1.5TB in a mirrored array. We recently needed more storage and will constantly be adding to this machine. We added 2 2TB drives in a striped array. What I'd like to do is find all directories totaling 10GB+ on the mirrored array and move them over to the striped array to increase storage on the mirrored array for smaller, more important data. I've tried:
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.
I am using the diff command with the -r option, to compare a large number of files and files in subdirectories. My main interest is to find out which files have been changed, and not what the actual changes are, and since a lot of files has been changed, it would be a lot easier to view the file names only. Is there and option for diff that might do this, or does there exist a similar tool/command that could do the job?
I have a problem with TFTP files greater than 32MB with Ubuntu. I haven't been able to find a fix for this issue. This has been a known issue for years and was corrected in the winodws world(AUGH !). when I did an apt-get install this morning it said my tftp was up to date.
I have a large directory tree with my ebooks and some of these files are zipped. I would like to move all of the zip files to another one so I can manipulate them. Since they are all scattered inside the tree, I would like to do it quickly and painfully with CLI. How should I proceed?
i currently have hundreds of files all in a single directory. What I would like to do is create 8 subdirectories and move the files into the subdirectories based on the first character of the file name. Ideally, the script would omit any 'the' or 'a' and use the second word for filing purposes. No filenames have spaces. Instead they use periodsThe subdirectories will be:
Two machines -- both 64-bit, both the latest Truecrypt installed, one Windows, one Linux. I created encrypted pendrive (using partition mode; not file-partition on regular partition) with FAT system on it. I copied several files/directories there -- using Windows. Then I unmounted it, mounted in Linux, but when I checked if everything is OK, it appeared that only the highest level of file hierarchy is visible -- i.e. only files and directories at mount point. Directories are seen as empty (in fact they are NOT empty). When I unmount pendrive and mount it again on Windows, all files/subdirectories are visible again. It is not an issue with older version of TC on Linux, because the version is the same. The question: how to make files in subdirectories visible on Linux?
In reading the rsync man page and browsing a lot of websites, I ended up a bit confused, or maybe it was just too much eggnog. Anyway, to exclude a directory "videos" with everything in it, which is /home/user1/camera/videos and I'm rsyncing the whole user1 directory to an external drive
find a file or content by name recursively similar to the ms-windows function search with Linux? I can do find . | grep test.html suspecting it's not the best.
For instance, running find . | grep terms.htmlgives my expected result while locate terms.html doesn't even though locate gets updated db - it might have to do with that it's an USB stick the file is on?
I would like a command or a bash script that search all files in all sub, modified last 12 hours, in /var/logs and that contains "alfa" or "bravo". The output should be filename of the file or files that contains that.
i have finished installing mysql, howeve some of the files were missing, like mysql.h. i have downloaded a DEV version which has all the files im looking for, however when i add my c++ file to the directory that they are in, it still does not run because it cannot find the mysql.h where does the compiler look for these files, or where should i put them?
Long story short, I got a folder with nearly 800,000 php files. I would like to search each file for a string and if it exists in that file, the file gets copied to another directory. Is this possible from the terminal? So far I got: grep -i -n -r 'ppr-1792' * | cp $1 move_to_here
But this obviously doesn't work. $1 needs to be the file name that contains matching text.
how to search in files text that is one-byte encoding? places - search for files in gnome in ubuntu searches only utf-8 text.i know one way: install wine and total commander, then search with it. what are better ways?[URL]
Hello, I need some help searching through multiple files, finding a line and replacing that line. The line I am searching for is:
password key ******* 1222554
ultimately I want to be able to delete the numbers after the asterisks . my thoughts are to create a script that will search for the line password key ******* and delete it then replace it with password key ******* my files are located in /opt and they are all txt files.
we are running a Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 3 (Taroon Upd 5) Kernel 2.4.21-32.ELsmp since several years. The server hosts an old ERP system who will be replaced at the end of the year.However it is necessary that some collegues are able to write some files to that server regulary. Since we are running Windows 7 on several machines, those users aren't anymore able to write to the samba share. Getting files from the share works fine.
But the problem seems not to be situated at the samba service because also the transfer using SSH (WINSCP) from any Win7 system to the server doesn't work.During testing we recogniced that transfering files smaller then 1kb works fine ... any file greater then 1kb ends up in an connection abort. This works with samba and also using SSH.All the workarounds editing some registry entries in Win7 for improving the interoperability between vista / win7 and samba don't work for us ... and also seem not to be the source of the problem.Is there a general known incompatibility between our RHEL version / kernel and Windows 7 regarding file transfers?
