Red Hat To Collide With Microsoft
In the previous article, we outlined how cultural dissonance can cause issues when cultures collide. In this article, we talk about what makes up cultural identity, and perhaps help you become more aware of your own cultural assumptions.
Red Hat to collide with Microsoft
On the contrary, in collectivist cultures, the emphasis is more on belonging to part of a group. Collective responsibility and solidarity with others are valued, and when relationships are damaged, grudges can be held for a very long time. There is a strong focus on harmony over conflict, and "fitting in."
In the business world, negotiation style is a key indicator of this dimension. If arguments are settled in an adversarial manner, with ideas being put to the test and challenged to see if they hold out, the culture is more masculine. More feminine cultures are focused on negotiation, by characterizing a shared problem, and collaborating as a group to get to a solution.
Cultures with a high uncertainty avoidance index typically have a strong focus on law and order, are heavily regulated, and have strong faith-based societies. In low uncertainty avoidance cultures, people are open to change and innovation, are more comfortable with taking risks for future gains, and in general favor less regulation and a greater focus on citizen participation in politics.
Finally (and much later than the others), Hofstede describes an axis based on the cultural emphasis on self-restraint. This is correlated with long-term vs short-term orientation, but is slightly different.
I am brand-new to RHEL, coming from a Windows-driven environment. I'm first looking to deploy a WordPress-enabled intranet site for our company with MS AD-integrated permissions, and so am looking to setup my first RHEL server to use AD logons, I've setup my RHEL server as a AD member via the SSSD configuration (no problem there), and have the settings placed to read GID/UID info from AD.
So I'm using Powershell to script this management. Three parts:1. Group GIDs. Read all existing GIDs, get the maximum GID present. Then add GIDs to groups without them, incrementing from the current max GID.2. User UIDs. Read all existing UIDs, get the maximum UID present. Then add UIDs to users without them, incrementing from the current max UID.3. Read User accounts again, getting their Primary Group and its GID, and setting each user accounts GID to be their Primary Group's GID.
I prefer to implement with the attributes stored in AD so it is the single point of truth. When you are using calculated/generated UID/GID on the RHEL side it makes querying the values from systems outside the Linux servers more difficult (ie. not a basic LDAP call).
kexec is a fastboot mechanism that allows to boot a Linux kernel from the context of an already running kernel without going through the BIOS. Since BIOS checks at startup can be very time consuming (especially on big servers with numerous peripherals), kexec can save a lot of time for developers who need to reboot a machine often for testing purposes. Using kexec for rebooting into a normal kernel is simple, but not within the scope of this article. See the kexec(1) man page.
kdump is a reliable kernel crash-dumping mechanism that utilizes the kexec software. The crash dumps are captured from the context of a freshly booted kernel; not from the context of the crashed kernel. Kdump uses kexec to boot into a second kernel whenever the system crashes. This second kernel, often called a capture kernel, boots with very little memory and captures the dump image.
Red Hat provides the KDump Helper tool to help you set up kdump in RHEL 5 and later.You can input a minimum amount of information and the tool will generate an all-in-one script for you to set up kdump with a very basic configuration, or you ca
