Get your freak on

Hello again

So … as a part of my job I was reading this article about a newly discovered ssl vulnerability , this time on the client side, and I thought, “surely some distros must have disabled this EXPORT ciphers” and right I was ,

Centos/RHEL 6

#   SSL Cipher Suite:
# List the ciphers that the client is permitted to negotiate.
# See the mod_ssl documentation for a complete list.

So at least on this point the attach is mitigated as browsers are not allowed to use these ciphers .

Looks good !!! 😀


Simpana … stop and disable

Hello World

So recently I was working on a automation project and, as a part of a scheduled work I needed to stop the commvault client Simpana, reboot a server and then safely restart the client, I wanted to make sure that the service was only started when I told it to, if you use one of the following

– Simpana stop

– Galaxy stop

when the service is restarted the simpana services are started back up ( as expected), the way to achieve this is simple :

Disable the services at boot

chkconfig Galaxy off

reboot , do what you need to do  and then

chkconfig Galaxy on

service Galaxy start

That is all 🙂
