ceph scrubbing time

When you don’t scrub your ceph pool it will scrub itself when you don’t want it to scrub: during working hours. To avoid that you can set the time in the night when scrubbing is allowed

the ceph config set is global for the cluster / all nodes.

root@pve-01:/etc/ceph# ceph config get osd osd_scrub_begin_hour
root@pve-01:/etc/ceph# ceph config set osd osd_scrub_begin_hour 22
root@pve-01:/etc/ceph# ceph config get osd osd_scrub_begin_hour
root@pve-01:/etc/ceph# ceph config get osd osd_scrub_end_hour
root@pve-01:/etc/ceph# ceph config set osd osd_scrub_end_hour 7
root@pve-01:/etc/ceph# ceph config get osd osd_scrub_end_hour

zpool set path=/dev/disk-by-id/sdsdsdsd tank da3p4
zpool set path=/dev/gpt/my_nice_name  

just type `zpool import` and you will see the name that you can import.

if you want to change the mount path use

zpool import -R /other/path poolname

to rename the pool use

zpool import original_name new_name

stuck at Install_SQLSupport_CPU64_Action

While installing SQL Server 2017 Developer Edition, I got stuck at Install_SQLSupport_CPU64_Action,
this happened to me for the second time, once at work and once at home.
The solution: You will need to browse to this installation path: C:\SQLServer2017Media\<YOUR_SQL_ENU>\1033_ENU_LP\x64\Setup
Then while the setup is stuck at Install_SQLSupport_CPU64_Action run SQLSUPPORT.msi
And follow the installation procedure.
Once installed, run the following command in cmd:
taskkill /F /FI "SERVICES eq msiserver"
The SQL Server setup will continue and succeed.

proxmox qmp command blockdev-snapshot-delete-internal-sync failed

While trying to move a VM from one node to another I got the error message:

VM 100 qmp command ‘blockdev-snapshot-delete-internal-sync’ failed – Failed to get a snapshot list: Operation not supported

One snapshot was stuck and the VM locked. How to solve this?

qm unlock 100
qm listsnapshot 100
qm delsnapshot 100 preFirstBoot --force
qm unlock <ID>
qm listsnapshot <ID>
qm delsnapshot <ID> <snapname> --force

it might be that the snapshot will remain on the hard disk.

Happy unlocking :)

esxi enable snmp

How to enable snmapd on your vmware esxi server

replace with your IP-range
esxcli system snmp set --communities public
esxcli system snmp set --enable true
esxcli network firewall ruleset set --ruleset-id snmp --allowed-all true
esxcli network firewall ruleset set --ruleset-id snmp --enabled true
esxcli system snmp set --syslocation "My Location"
esxcli system snmp set --targets=

Now you can start the service from the UI

ban ’em all

Ban all the attackers. Easier said than done. A website is constantly under attack as the whole server. One day I decided it was too difficult to maintain every single server and ban those attackers. Blocking IPs on the website level is too late. Also, it consumes a lot of resources. So I went for iptables. You can find it on github/JBlond/ban_em_all

DROP vs REJECT. Well, DROP is a bad option for debugging. Also, it is not the default behavior of the OS itself. Nothing is listing on a port? The OS sends a reject. Sadly I haven’t found a way to use REJECT when it comes to IPs. Using DROP on the other hand the automatic server/website scanners assume a firewall and it is more likely to continue the scan.

Add real emojis and icons to mintty bash on windows

Installing git for windows isn’t hard anymore. I recommend installing “Git for Windows SDK” so you can install extra packages via Pacman. I like fish shell and tmux, and those aren’t included in the default installer. Either way, you can run bash and or fish on windows. The emojis and icons however don’t look very pretty, more like DOS-style.

Open a shell and cd to

C:\Program Files\Git\usr\share\mintty\emojis or C:\git-sdk-64\usr\share\mintty\emojis depending what installation you chose.

cd C:\git-sdk-64\usr\share\mintty\
mkdir emojis
cd emojis
curl -LO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wiki/mintty/mintty/getemojis
getemoji -d
getemoji .

In mintty:
Options -> Text -> Emojis -> style: google
Options -> Text -> Character set -> UTF-8
