In this post we will discuss how to mount ISO in Linux VM running inside Virtualbox or VMware.
In our last post we have seen how to use nmtui for network management. In this post we will see how to use nmcli for doing the same activity.
“nmcli” is a command line interface. Benefit with both nmtui and nmcli is that you don’t have to update the network configuration files manually. All the required changes are done by nmtui and nmcli themselves.
Good thing with nmcli is that you don’t have to install any extra package like nmtui. nmcli is generally included with NetworkManager.
In our last post we have seen how to change hostname manually or with hostnamectl .
In this post we will discuss how to change hostname with nmtui and nmcli tools.
In this post we will see how to use nmtui for network management. This can be a very useful tool for starters in Redhat Linux 7.
Linux can generally have two types of Disks. IDE and SCSI.
By convention, IDE drives will be given device names /dev/hda to /dev/hdd. Hard Drive A (/dev/hda) is the first drive and Hard Drive C (/dev/hdc) is the third.
In this post we will discuss how to scan new LUNs allocated by storage team to a Redhat Linux system.
There are two ways of scanning the LUNs
In this post we will see how we can add a file as swap space in Linux. Same steps are to be followed for Redhat and Ubuntu Linux.
Type the following command to create 100MB swap file (1024 * 100MB = 102400 block size):
dd if=/dev/zero of=/swap1 bs=1024 count=102400
Secure swap file
In our last post we have seen how to add a file for swap space.
In this post we will see how to add a LVM2 Logical Volume as swap.
Here we have a VG name VG1 in which we will create a volume LV1 of 1GB.
# lvcreate VG1 -n LV1 -L 1G
Format the new swap space using mkswap:
In our last post we have seen how to change hostname of an RHEL server.
But if you are using the RHEL 7 AMI provided on AWS marketplace the steps will be slightly different.
In this post we will see how to change hostname in Redhat Linux 4, 5, 6 and 7 .
