Hmmm, macOS Sierra and XQuartz and X11

I've not dug too far into this, but something has changed in the world of X11 forwarding between macOS and Linux, since I upgraded my Macs to macOS Sierra.

In the past, as long as I had XQuartz installed: -


I was able to happily tunnel over X11 between macOS and Linux, using a command such as: -

ssh -X wasadmin@was9001

but, since the update to Sierra, I see this: -

ssh -X wasadmin@was9001

which returns: -

wasadmin@192.168.1.109's password: 
Warning: untrusted X11 forwarding setup failed: xauth key data not generated
Last login: Thu Oct 27 13:47:24 2016 from 192.168.1.13


and, from Linux: -

xterm 

which returns this: -

xterm Xt error: Can't open display: 
xterm:  DISPLAY is not set


I did the needful and Google'd to find this: -


which said, in part: -

On MacOS Sierra, I use ssh -Y command , then x11 works, although got a Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding. client side no ~/.ssh/config file

so I tried this: -

ssh -Y wasadmin@was9001

which returns this: -

wasadmin@192.168.1.109's password: 
Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding.
Last login: Thu Oct 27 14:16:13 2016 from 192.168.1.13


and: -

xterm 

which JUST WORKS :-)

For the record, I also don't have a config file in ~/.ssh either 

ls -al ~/.ssh/

total 16
drwx------   3 hayd  staff   102  7 Nov  2014 .
drwxr-xr-x+ 42 hayd  staff  1428 27 Oct 13:37 ..
-rw-r--r--   1 hayd  staff  7821 27 Oct 09:33 known_hosts


From the man page for ssh we have: -

     -X      Enables X11 forwarding.  This can also be specified on a per-host basis in a configuration file.

             X11 forwarding should be enabled with caution.  Users with the ability to bypass file permissions on the remote host (for the user's X authorization database) can access the local X11 display through the forwarded connection.  An
             attacker may then be able to perform activities such as keystroke monitoring.

             For this reason, X11 forwarding is subjected to X11 SECURITY extension restrictions by default.  Please refer to the ssh -Y option and the ForwardX11Trusted directive in ssh_config(5) for more information.

     -x      Disables X11 forwarding.

     -Y      Enables trusted X11 forwarding.  Trusted X11 forwardings are not subjected to the X11 SECURITY extension controls.

so I guess that's the difference :-)

IBM Cloud Private and Kubernetes - Coping files

Whilst I have used docker cp numerous times to copy files from a running container to the host ( or vice versa ), I had the need to do the same with a container running in a Pod orchestrated by Kubernetes.The syntax for Docker is: -docker cp :/from-path /to-pathe.g.docker cp 97ee4c182ece:/opt/ibm/db2/V11.1/java/db2jcc4.jar .For containers running in Pods via Kubernetes, it's a little different.The first trick is to inspect the Pod: -kubectl get podNAME RE

Following an earlier post: -IBM WebSphere Application Server - Tuning and Monitoring and Tuning - IBM Health CenterI've been guiding a colleague in the use of HC, outside of WebSphere Application Server (WAS).This time I wanted to show how HC could be used to monitor a Plain Ole Java Object (POJO), specifically a Java class.Here's one I prepared earlier: -HelloWorld.javapublic class HelloWorld{ public static void main(String[] args) { while (true) { System.out.println("Hello, World");

IBM DB2, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the IBM Mainframe
Thu, Nov 16th 2017 5:54p   Dave Hay
I'm running through the process to deploy IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) 8.6 onto an IBM mainframe ….This is something that I've done a number of times before, since I first joined the (then) IBM Software Services for WebSphere team in late 2012.In essence, although the underlying hardware is the IBM z platform ( also known as LinuxOne in this guise ), I'm installing BPM etc. onto Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and Linux is ….

This harks back to a VERY old post: -Testing Times with Telnetwhich was penned back in 2010.Since I've upgraded to macOS High Sierra, I've lost the FTP and Telnet clients.Ordinarily that wouldn't be a problem but ….Telnet is often useful for testing ports e.g. telnet localhost 9443.Thankfully, we have a solution ….

Further to my last: -IBM Cloud Private - Tinkering with VagrantI'm now looking at the options to use VMware Workstation ( this is on Linux, rather than my default home of macOS ) instead of VirtualBox.Following this: -https://www.vagrantup.com/docs/vmware/installation.htmlI've installed the appropriate plugin: -vagrant plugin install vagrant-vmware-workstationInstalling the 'vagrant-vmware-workstation' plugin.

IBM Cloud Private - Tinkering with Vagrant
Mon, Nov 13th 2017 3:11p   Dave Hay
So I've been on a slow boat to IBM Cloud Private, over the past few weeks, and am continuing to self-enable in my "spare" time ( my formal enablement starts next week ). Looking at this: -Source: IBM Cloud Private 2.1.0 - Architectureit was clear that I really needed a few boxes onto which to actually install ICP.Whilst it is possible to run everything on one box ( as per this IBM Cloud Private - My first foray ), I thought that I really should do things properly.So, starting with Beast, whic

Whilst following this online course: -LFS132x Introduction to Cloud Foundry and Cloud Native Software ArchitectureI was tinkering ( man, I love that word ) with Cloud Foundry ( CF ).Now it's been a while and I've been through a macOS upgrade from Sierra to High Sierra ( wonder if there's a clue there ? ).So this time around, I'm seeing "Segmentation Fault: 11" : -cf versionSegmentation fault: 11cf loginSegmentation fault: 11which cf/usr/local/bin/cfls -al `which cf`-rwxr-xr-x 1 root whee
