The previous webpage I was using to help me with making custom configurations to my NAT for my virtual machines is no longer viable for Version 5. However, after upgrading to version 5, I had to follow these directions:
In VMWare Player 5 you need to:
go to the vmware-directory and run in an elevated cmd.exe-box
rundll32.exe vmnetui.dll VMNetUI_ShowStandalone
I was trying to investigate a failed disk from a RAID array using a USB hard drive dock and Windows 7. The problem was Windows was reporting that the disk was read-only, so it wouldn’t repartition the hard disk.
I opened up diskpart tool in windows (Run As Administrator) and tried to run the clean command, but again it complained that the hard drive was in read-only mode.
Finally, I found the way to remove the read-only flag, so I could
wipe the drive, and scan it for bad sectors.
DISKPART> list disk
DISKPART> select disk 2
DISKPART> list part
DISKPART> select part 2
DISKPART> attrib part clear readonly
Do you use a hosting provider that has a different timezone than you do? You can change the appearance of the timezone easily, without root access, or playing around with dates and times.
You can use the tzselect command. It will ask you for your Continent, your State/Province, and will output the command you need to modify your timezone.
I live in Brisbane, Australia, so my timezone is Australia/Brisbane. All I needed to do what append one line to my .bash_profile
echo “export TZ=Australia/Brisbane” >> .bash_profile
Now date returns the correct date and time, and all my files have local timestamps.

Manipulating partition tables on MS-DOS labelled hard disk (the most common type as of this writing) is an extemely important skill to have as a System Administrator. If one or more partitions gets deleted or modified in an unintentional way, it is imperative that one know how to restore or modify the partitions to rectify the problem.
I tried installing and configuring BOINC on openSUSE but found some struggles along the way. I think I’ve got it set up and working, although we won’t see any evidence of problems until it has been running for several days.
