Argh, I hate macOS when it comes to the apostrophe character
Twitter Google+ Facebook LinkedIn Addthis Email Gmail Flipboard Reddit Tumblr WhatsApp StumbleUpon Yammer Evernote Delicious
   

It's days like this when I hate the way that macOS handles the apostrophe, also known as the single quote character.

Specifically, I mean this character: -

'

or do I mean THIS character: -

'

?

Yes, it's the latter and, for some annoying reason, macOS likes to switch from one to t'other, just to annoy me.

So I'm trying to run a Jython script: -

cellID=AdminControl.getCell()
nodeNames = AdminTask.listNodes().splitlines()
for nodeName in nodeNames:
 AdminControl.invoke('WebSphere:name=repository,process=nodeagent,platform=common,node='+nodeName+',version=5.0,type=ConfigRepository,mbeanIdentifier=repository,cell='+cellID+',spec=1.0','refreshRepositoryEpoch'


but I keep getting: -

Traceback (innermost last):
  (no code object) at line 0
  File "<input>", line 2
 AdminControl.invoke('WebSphere:name=repository,process=nodeagent,platform=common,node='+nodeName+',version=5.0,type=ConfigRepository,mbeanIdentifier=repository,cell='+cellID+',spec=1.0','refreshRepositoryEpoch')
                                                                                                                                                                                         ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

It took me an AGE to see where I was going wrong.

Once I fixed my syntax : -

cellID=AdminControl.getCell()
nodeNames = AdminTask.listNodes().splitlines()
for nodeName in nodeNames:
 AdminControl.invoke('WebSphere:name=repository,process=nodeagent,platform=common,node='+nodeName+',version=5.0,type=ConfigRepository,mbeanIdentifier=repository,cell='+cellID+',spec=1.0','refreshRepositoryEpoch') 

things moved along.

I then saw this: -

WASX7015E: Exception running command: ""; exception information:
javax.management.InstanceNotFoundException: WebSphere:name=repository,process=nodeagent,platform=common,node=Dmgr,version=5.0,type=ConfigRepository,mbeanIdentifier=repository,cell=PCCell1,spec=1.0


which makes sense, as I'm trying to synchronise a Deployment Manager ( there are two nodes within my cell, and my loop doesn't distinguish between them ).

I further fixed my script: -

cellID=AdminControl.getCell()
nodeNames = AdminTask.listNodes().splitlines()
for nodeName in nodeNames:
 if nodeName.find('D') == -1:
  AdminControl.invoke('WebSphere:name=repository,process=nodeagent,platform=common,node='+nodeName+',version=5.0,type=ConfigRepository,mbeanIdentifier=repository,cell='+cellID+',spec=1.0','refreshRepositoryEpoch')

and now have something that works ( it's primitive, in that it ignores nodes that begin with D e.g. Deployment Manager == Dmgr01

Apple Watch - go, no go, go

So I had a weird experience last evening, and not in a good way.For no apparent reason, this was my Apple Watch: -and this: -I have no earthly idea what happened.So, being a true nerd, and a big fan of The IT Crowd, I decided to ( all together now ) TURN IT OFF AND ON AGAIN ….Obviously I couldn't read the display, what with it being all garbled n' all, so I just hit the big button on the right-hand side, below the digital crown and chose the appropriate gibberish - it was the one in red, so

Jenkins to Git - SSH says "No"
Fri, Oct 13th 2017 10:28a   Dave Hay
As per my earlier post: -Learning Times - Or Git being a bit of a GitI'm on a voyage of discovery with Jenkins and Git.Whilst trying to plumb onto into t'other, I was hitting a blocker.To recap, I have Jenkins installed on my MacBook, running locally, and I have Git running on a Docker container on a remote Mac.Therefore, I'm connecting to the remote Git repository using SSH rather than, say, HTTPS or a local file-system.This works OK for me using Git commands such as: -git clone ssh://git@19

IBM HTTP Server - Checking Personal Certificates
Wed, Oct 11th 2017 3:54p   Dave Hay
Whilst on the subject of IBM HTTP Server (IHS), as per an earlier post: -IBM HTTP Server - Tinkering with CMS Keystore PasswordsI was "auditing" the SSL certificate that I'm using for IHS, specifically the signature algorithm.So I have a single certificate in the key store: -/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin/gskcapicmd -cert -list -db /opt/IBM/HTTPServer/APIC/ssl/keystore.kdb -pw passw0rdCertificates found* default, - personal, ! trusted, # secret key*- wlpn.uk.ibm.comwhich I validated as follows: -/op
