Sun, Jul 31st 2016 2:46a   Dave Hay
One of my friends was looking for a mechanism to invoke a script as another user AND pass in a parameter.Challenge, accepted :-)Here's my script: -/home/db2inst1/foobar.sh #!/bin/bashecho "Hello World! from `whoami`"echo "And today's special is " $1 "!!! "exitand here's how I invoke it from another user ( root ): -su - db2inst1 -c '/home/db2inst1/foobar.sh Fish'Hello World! from db2inst1And today's special is Fish !!! su - db2inst1 -c "/home/db2inst1/foobar.sh Beef"Hello World! fr

IBM Operational Decision Manager Advanced 8.8.1 - My First Foray
Sun, Jul 31st 2016 1:38a   Dave Hay
I spent a few happy hours implementing ODM 8.8.1 on a Red Hat Linux VM yesterday, and have written up my notes below.Bottom line, this is pretty similar to my experiences with earlier versions ( 8.5, 8.6, 8.7 etc. ) with one exception: -- With 8.8.1, we've now split out the Rules Management Server onto a separate JVM, meaning that we potentially have two clusters and three serversFor this build, I've chosen to deploy Decision Center AND Decision Server; other options exist, of courseHope this

Messing about with IPTables
Fri, Jul 29th 2016 2:13p   Dave Hay
I'm NOT a firewall or networking expert, so this is very much YMMV.I wanted to see if/how I could use the out-of-the-box IPTables firewall to block most connectivity to a web server ( IBM HTTP Server ) whilst allowing SSH connectivity and, more importantly, allowing incoming requests from Flush the existing rulesiptables -FAdd a rule to allow SSH connectivity only from a specific interface and host - actually the host VMiptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp -s 192.168.153.1 --dport 22 -m state --sta

MQJCA1011 and the story of the missing IBM MQ JMS Provider permissions
Fri, Jul 22nd 2016 10:33a   Dave Hay
We saw this problem earlier this week: -Failed to load the WebSphere MQ native JNI library: 'mqjbnd'. The JVM attempted to load the platform native library 'mqjbnd', which was mapped to the filename: 'libmqjbnd.a'.When attempting to load the library, the JVM reported the error message:'mqjbnd (Not found in java.library.path)'in the context of a failing WebSphere Application Server (WAS) to IBM MQ (MQ) configuration.We found this, whilst trying to debug this: -com.ibm.mq.connector.Detaile

I was getting slightly cross ( hey, I'm British, what can I say? ) with Firefox 47's insistence on asking me whether I REALLY wanted notifications from a site, each and every time I opened or refreshed a page on that site.This had the answer: -Disable desktop notifications for a siteYou can reset this to the default (or outright disallow it) on a per-site basis by right-clicking somewhere in a blank spot of the site (or pressing Ctrl-I on Windows or Cmd-I on Mac) and then selecting "View Page
