Having Wireless Bluetooth in Windows 7

I have HP laptop and I purchased a new Bluetooth Jebra and I was trying to connect it to Windows 7 and it was connected but no sound is getting out of Jebra.

I investigated and I found that Microsoft is not supporting Wireless Bluetooth by default, you have to install vendor specific drivers.

Anyway, I found HP driver for Wireless Bluetooth in this link and  I am happy now I can listen to my Computer sound from this new Jebra.

 

Windows 7 driver.

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp48501-49000/sp48538.exe

 

I found this file also but I did not install it but in case you need

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp47001-47500/sp47022.exe

When pairing with Jebra,  drivers are identified automatically.

Enable root access to SSH sessions in Solaris

When  Solaris 10 or 11 is installed, by default root can not login from remote machine but normal users can login and can choose to switch to admin using su or sudo.

Root users remote access is disabled on the SSH daemon SSHD level, so simple modify sshd_config file located in /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Locate a line with PermitRootLogin no and replace it with  PermitRootLogin yes

Then restart SSHD by the command below

#svcadm restart svc:/network/ssh:default

Now: you can access Solaris system with root account remotely

HP iLO for iPhone and iPad

HP® iLO Mobile Toolbox provides access to the console of your HP ProLiant® server from your iPhone or iPad. Since it interacts directly with the HP Integrated Lights-Out (HP iLO) chip on ProLiant servers, this mobile app gives you total control over your server at all times. It can be healthy or it can be off with a blank hard-drive. Your server only needs to be plugged in. As an IT administrator you can now fix problems and do deployments while you are on the road from almost anywhere.

Besides what remote desktop applications normally do, this app will also allow you to do the following:

  • Operate the server’s power switch
  • View and interact with the server’s startup.
  • Make BIOS configuration changes.
  • Make option ROM configuration changes.
  • Interact with the operating system as it starts.
  • Install an operating system
  • View what is on the screen if the operating system crashes

iLO Mobile Toolbox also allows to you to mount an ISO CD/DVD image via HP iLO. This ISO will show up on the server as a USB CD/DVD drive. You can boot off of it and deploy an operating system.

iLO Mobile Toolbox allows you to launch HP iLO scripts and monitor progress. The scripts are staged on your web server and downloaded into this mobile app as they are run.
