Check on which global zone does the Solaris container resides

One of the major challenge of managing Oracle Solaris server is finding out where the host really resides. The system administrator can't just assume that every Solaris shell they login into is the global zone. Even more problems could arise if the administrator is new or the system just have been handed over to them.

One way to find out which the Solaris container resides is by using this long command :

TP-Link MR-3220 + OpenWRT, lessons learned

Recently I've tried to install modified firmware on my TP-Link MR-3220. It's a decent wifi router, in my opinion. It has a USB port so it can be connected with wireless modems. But I found some difficulties from it. Some modems I owned cannot be detected, while some other can be used, but really hard to connect with the non-bundled network provider. (The wifi router is positioned on the second floor of 3 stories building, so the wireless broadband signal is not good enough).

And then I found OpenWRT. The aim of OpenWRT is basically to replace the stock firmware of wireless router to an open-source, linux based operating system. It even got it's own package manager (OPKG). With it, my broadband modem finally works with the MR-3220 and non-bundled internet provider.

Back-up broken HDD partition to image file using linux dd

After four years of service (as I remember), my external hd drive finally about to meet its end. I'm hearing squeaking and clicking noise from it. Then I think before it getting worse, I need to backup the data to another media. A long time ago, I already heard about the tool : "dd" - that is able to backup even a broken hard drive. So, I decided to give it a try.

The command is simple. I just use
 dd if=/dev/sdc1 of=/home/myname/imagefile conv=noerror,sync
/dev/sdc1 is the partition that I wanted to backup, and after the of= argument, I put the target image file. The noerror option simply made the reading process going even if an error is found, and the sync option.... I'm not sure about it :p. I use it because the tutorials on the web also use it.

Running Your Installed WindowsXP on Linux OS

Sorry if you can't understand my previous post. From now on I decided to make this blog English only, and if you prefer Indonesian, please visit

Here is what u need:
  • VirtualBox (>=1.4) installed.
  • user that can run the VirtualBox virtualisation (included in the group : "vboxusers") and also a member of "disk" and "plugdev" group.
  • Minimum RAM 256MB to be shared with the guest OS. This means that u must have >256MB RAM. I guess 512MB will be fine.
  • No "agp440.sys" in the folder : :\Windows\System32\drivers. Please read this for details
  • On this tutorial, hard drive is detected as "/dev/sda". Make adjustment according to your own system.

What U Should do Before U Begin :
  • Create a System Restore Checkpoint and backup your data first.
  • Most likely you will need to activate your Windows on the first run. It's a little annoying if u still want to boot your Windows system normally; u'll have to activate it again. And so on, and so on....
  • I've experienced some difficulties on notebooks when I tried to boot my WindowsXP system again normally. The keyboard and mouse driver make the laptop's keyboard and touchpad freeze. This is when I use my System Restore.

  • As the user that already has the needed previleges, run this command on your favourite terminal :
$ VBoxManage internalcommands listpartitions -rawdisk /dev/sda
  • Match the partition number with your WindowsXP partition.
  • Enter the user's home folder, enter the ".VirtualBox" directory, make the directory "VDI", and enter it.
  • Run this command on the "VDI" directory.
$ VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename file_name.vmdk -rawdisk /dev/sda -partitions 1,5 -relative -register
  • 1,5 = the partition number that you want to include on your virtual system
  • run VirtualBox, and make new profile with these specs :
OS_Type : Windows XP
Base memory size : min 256
Boot Hard disk : file_name.vmdk
  • Please visit this website , find "boot disk image" and download it.
  • Mount that ISO file that you've just downloaded, in your virtualBox profile.
  • Try to boot your virtual system.
  • If something goes wrong, try setting the IO-APIC feature (on your VirtualBox profile) on.
Have phun....
