How to test Ubuntu does access to Active Directory?

April 26th, 2018 by admin No comments »

You can do this by installing ldap-utils on Ubuntu.

1.	sudo apt install ldap-utils
2.	ldapsearch -H ldaps://domaincontroller.example.com:636 -x -D "CN=LDAP_Alternate,OU=System Accounts,DC=example,DC=com" -W -b "dc=example,dc=com"

The above string will connect to a specified domain controller of port 636 using simple bind. Simply replace the domaincontroller with your domain controller and update DC=XX as needed.

In this example: example.com: DC=example,DC=com

How to reset your zcashd wallet without losing your wallet addresses

August 30th, 2017 by admin No comments »

If your running into issues restarting/starting zcashd after stopping it, it could be that your installation has been corrupted. This is not a major issue thankfully.

First, just in case, backup your wallet as instructed at the following location.

ZCASH WALLET BACKUP - Official

make a backup of your .zcash folder

sudo cp .zcash .zcash.todaysdate

You shouldn’t need the above, but better safe than sorry.

Next go into the .zcash folder and type:

/bin/rm blocks/ chainstate/ db.log debug.log  fee_estimates.dat -Rf

Once complete, restart zcashd, it will re-download the blocks and you’ll be good to go.

NOTE: Till all the blocks are downloaded the commands

zcash-cli z_gettotalbalance

0 ZEC, don’t panic. Once it’s done downloading, it will show the proper amounts.

Hopefully this saves some people some time.
