Enable hibernate / suspend to disk on Windows 10

I don’t know why, but the admins tend to disable hibernate via group policies from time to time. It is pretty simple to enable, but you need admin permissions.
This script first forces UAC and then enables hibernation.

@echo off

:: BatchGotAdmin
REM  --> Check for permissions
>nul 2>&1 "%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\cacls.exe" "%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\config\system"

REM --> If error flag set, we do not have admin.
if '%errorlevel%' NEQ '0' (
    echo Requesting administrative privileges...
    goto UACPrompt
) else ( goto gotAdmin )

    echo Set UAC = CreateObject^("Shell.Application"^) > "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"
    echo UAC.ShellExecute "%~s0", "", "", "runas", 1 >> "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"

    exit /B

    if exist "%temp%\getadmin.vbs" ( del "%temp%\getadmin.vbs" )
    pushd "%CD%"
    CD /D "%~dp0"

JavaScript loop / foreach an object

Coming from PHP I wondered how do to a simple foreach() in JavaScript.

function loopObject($object) {
    for (const [$key, $value] of Object.entries($object)) {
        // dome something

Not that once I found the entries function. Why I use the dollar sign $ for the variables? It is a habit and easier to read and it avoids conflicts with language reserved words.

Influxdb 2.0 lessons learned

I played a bit with influxdb version 2.0.0, telegraf client and two of my raspberry pies.
On my oldest pi  a 1 B+ the telegraf client caused too much performance issues on that light weight single CPU and 480 MB of usable RAM. So I chose a simple bash script with curl to send the CPU temperature to influxdb.

timestamp=$(date +%s)
temp=$(vcgencmd measure_temp)
curl -XPOST \
"" \
--header "Authorization: Token asas==" \
--data-raw "cpu-temperature,host=pihole ${temp//\'C/} ${timestamp}"

At first I was running influxdbd by hand. But I didn’t want the usual port of 9999 of the alpha version and I also wanted SSL encryption when I log into the backend. Pretty easy with the already running apache on that server.

<VirtualHost *:443>
	DocumentRoot /var/www/empty

	<Directory /var/www/empty>
		Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
		AllowOverride None
		Require all granted

	ProxyPass / http://localhost:9999/
	ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:9999/

	SSLEngine on
	SSLCertificateFile  fullchain.pem
	SSLCertificateKeyFile privkey.pem

so far so good. Starting the influxdb by hand after a reboot or failing isn’t an option.  So I created by on systemd service file

sudo $EDITOR /lib/systemd/system/influxdb2.service

Description=InfluxDB 2.0 service file.



Do not forget to enable it :D sudo systemctl enable influxdb2


So far I made one observation. The telegraf client is doing a lot of DNS requests through the network. If I’m not wrong it does it for every request. If you look at the graphic you see that the bottom a big blue line. That is the DNS requests from telegraf. At some point around 20:00 You see a drop. Well there I change the flush interval to 120 seconds. Later at round 7:30 I wrote the IP and host name into /etc/hosts and the “noise” was gone. That is something you maybe want to do in your devices, too to save some bandwidth and energy.

CISCO router password recovery

– Attach a terminal or PC with terminal emulation to the console port of the router.
Use these terminal settings:

* 9600 baud rate
* No parity
* 8 data bits
* 1 stop bit
* No flow control
– If you can access the router, type show version at the prompt, and record the configuration register setting. See Example of Password Recovery Procedure in order to view the output of a show version command
Note: The configuration register is usually set to 0x2102 or 0x102. If you can no longer access the router (because of a lost login or TACACS password), you can safely assume that your configuration register is set to 0x2102.


– Press **Break** (**Ctrl-Break** Windows XP) on the terminal keyboard within 60 seconds of power up in order to put the router into ROMMON.
– Type **confreg 0x2142** at the rommon 1> prompt in order to boot from Flash. This step bypasses the startup configuration where the passwords are stored.
– Type **reset** at the rommon 2> prompt. The router reboots, but ignores the saved configuration.
– Type **no** after each setup question, or press **Ctrl-C** in order to skip the initial setup procedure.
– Type **enable** at the Router> prompt. You are in enable mode and should see the Router# prompt.
– Type **configure memory** or **copy startup-config running-config** in order to copy the nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) into memory. **Important**: Do not type **copy running-config startup-config** or **write**. These commands erase your startup configuration.
– Type **show running-config**. The **show running-config** command shows the configuration of the router. In this configuration, the **shutdown** command appears under all interfaces, which indicates all interfaces are currently shut down. In addition, the passwords (enable password, enable secret, vty, console passwords) are in either an encrypted or unencrypted format. You can reuse unencrypted passwords. You must change encrypted passwords to a new password.
– Type **configure terminal**.
– The hostname(config)# prompt appears.
– Type **enable secret <password>** in order to change the enable secret password. For example: hostname(config)#**enable secret cisco**
– Issue the **no shutdown** command on every interface that you use. If you issue a **show ip interface brief** command, every interface that you want to use should display up up.
– Type **config-register <configuration_register_setting>**. Where **configuration_register_setting** is either the value you recorded in step 2 or **0x2102** . For example: hostname(config)#**config-register 0x2102**
– Press **Ctrl-z** or **end** in order to leave the configuration mode. The hostname# prompt appears.
– Type **write memory** or **copy running-config startup-config** in order to commit the changes.
