Vendor Landscape: Security Information Event Management

Your Challenge

  • In the face of increasing regulatory pressures and headline-grabbing hacking activities, enterprises are deploying an ever increasing volume of dedicated security tools. As a result they are drowning in log and alert data to the point where the tools inhibit their own value.
  • Implementing SIEM allows enterprises to manage and respond to an ever-widening range of threats and compliance requirements by consolidating, aggregating, correlating, and reporting on security events. Taking action based on correlated data is accelerated, and detailed reporting supports obligations to demonstrate the specific measures the enterprise is taking to be compliant.
  • Getting a strong product evaluation allows organizations to enhance enterprise security at a manageable cost. Making the wrong choice could mean higher costs, lower security, or both.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • The SIEM market is undergoing rapid developments. In existence for just over a decade, the market is still maturing and product sets continue to be rationalized. Market consolidation is constantly occurring with large security vendors purchasing smaller dedicated SIEM vendors. The threat and regulatory landscape is making SIEM a more and more attractive technology for security firms and customers. Major leaps are being made in advanced capabilities as specialized correlation and analytic features are commercialized.
  • At first glance a SIEM may cause a panic attack. It will highlight various threats, risks, and vulnerabilities you may have not known about. Stay calm and realize the technology is providing a greater visibility into your organization’s security standing.
  • Various deployment and management options are making SIEM technology available to all levels of security organizations. Near full out-of-the-box solutions are being used by smaller organizations. Managed security service provider (MSSP) offerings are appearing, and can reduce the ongoing costs to a manageable level. High-demand organizations are using SIEM to augment their security operations command with as many as five full-time equivalents (FTEs) monitoring and managing the system to responds to threats in real time.

Impact and Result

  • Understand what’s new in the SIEM market and where it’s heading.
  • Develop a strong understanding of the top SIEM vendors and their offerings to identify a best-fit product for your organization.
  • Cultivate vendor management tactics through a tailored request for proposal and a demo script in order to get the features and functionality you need for either security management, compliance adherence, or overall risk reduction.

Top 4 Reasons for Node Reboot or Node Eviction in Real Application


Remote DBA usually face Node Reboots or Node Evictions in Real Application Cluster Environment. Node Reboot is performed by CRS to maintain consistency in Cluster environment by removing node which is facing some critical issue.

A critical problem could be a node not responding via a network heartbeat, a node not responding via a disk heartbeat, a hung. or a hung ocssd.bin process etc. There could be many more reasons for node Eviction but Some of them are common and repetitive.Here, I am listing:-

Top 4 Reasons for Node Reboot or Node Eviction in Real Application Cluster (RAC) Environment:

Whenever, Database Administrator face Node Reboot issue, First thing to look at should be /var/log/message and OS Watcher logs of the Database Node which was rebooted.

var/log/messages will give you an actual picture of reboot:- Exact time of restart, status of resource like swap and RAM etc.

1. High Load on Database Server: Out of 100 Issues, I have seen 70 to 80 time High load on the system was reason for Node Evictions. One common scenario is due to high load RAM and SWAP space of DB node got exhaust and system stops working and finally reboot.

So, Every time you see a node eviction start investigation with /var/log/messages and Analyze OS Watcher logs. Below is a situation when a Database Node was reboot due to high load.

/var/log/messages output from a Database Node just before Node eviction:

From above message, we can see that this system has only 4kB free swap out of 24G swap space. This means system neither has RAM not SWAP for processing, which case a reboot. This picture is also clear from OS Watcher of system.

How to avoid Node Reboot due to High Load.

The simple and best way to avoid this is use Oracle Database Resource Manager (DBRM). DBRM help to resolve this by allowing the database to have more control over how hardware resources and their allocation. DBA should setup Resource consumer group and Resource plan and should use them as per requirements. In Exadata system Exadata DBA can use IORM to setup resource allocation among multiple database instances.

2. Voting Disk not Reachable: One of the another reason for Node Reboot is clusterware is not able to access a minimum number of the voting files .When the node aborts for this reason, the node alert log will show CRS-1606 error.

Here is a scenario for voting disk not reachable:
There could be two reasons for this issue:

A. Connection to the voting disk is interrupted.
B. if only one voting disk is in use and version is less than, hitting known bug 13869978.

How to Solve Voting Disk Outage.

There could be many reasons for voting disk is not reachable, Here are few general approach for DBA to follow.

1. Use command ” crsctl query css votedisk ” on a node where clusterware is up to get a list of all the voting files.

2. Check that each node can access the devices underlying each voting file.

3. Check for permissions to each voting file/disk have not been changed.

4. Check OS, SAN, and storage logs for any errors from the time of the incident.

5. Apply fix for 13869978 if only one voting disk is in use. This is fixed in patch set and above, and and above

If any voting files or underlying devices are not currently accessible from any node, work with storage administrator and/or system administrator to resolve it at storage and/or OS level.

3. Missed Network Connection between Nodes: In technical term this is called as Missed Network Heartbeat (NHB). Whenever there is communication gap or no communication between nodes on private network (interconnect) due to network outage or some other reason. A node abort itself to avoid “split brain ” situation. The most common (but not exclusive) cause of missed NHB is network problems communicating over the private interconnect.

Suggestion to troubleshoot Missed Network Heartbeat.

1. Check OS statistics from the evicted node from the time of the eviction. DBA can use OS Watcher to look at OS Stats at time of issue, check oswnetstat and oswprvtnet for network related issues.

2. Validate the interconnect network setup with the Help of Network administrator.

3. Check communication over the private network.

4. Check that the OS network settings are correct by running the RACcheck tool.

4. Database Or ASM Instance Hang: Sometimes Database or ASM instance hang can cause Node reboot. In these case Database instance is hang and is terminated afterwards. which cause either reboot cluster or Node eviction. DBA should check alert log of Database and ASM instance for any hang situation which might cause this issue.

Database Alert log file entry for Database Hang Situation:

At the same time resources at Cluster level start failing and node was evicted by itself. Real Application Cluster Log files

So, I believe this could be due to some bug in database.

In few of the cases, bugs could be the reason for node reboot. bug may be at Database level, ASM level or at Real Application Cluster level. Here, after initial investigation from Database Administrator side, DBA should open an SR with Oracle Support.

Please share if you know any other Common reason for Node eviction in RAC environment in comment section of the post.

The Web Robots Pages #web #file #server


About /robots.txt

In a nutshell

Web site owners use the /robots.txt file to give instructions about their site to web robots; this is called The Robots Exclusion Protocol.

It works likes this: a robot wants to vists a Web site URL, say Before it does so, it firsts checks for, and finds:

The “User-agent: * ” means this section applies to all robots. The “Disallow: / ” tells the robot that it should not visit any pages on the site.

There are two important considerations when using /robots.txt:

  • robots can ignore your /robots.txt. Especially malware robots that scan the web for security vulnerabilities, and email address harvesters used by spammers will pay no attention.
  • the /robots.txt file is a publicly available file. Anyone can see what sections of your server you don’t want robots to use.

So don’t try to use /robots.txt to hide information.

The details

The /robots.txt is a de-facto standard, and is not owned by any standards body. There are two historical descriptions:

In addition there are external resources:

The /robots.txt standard is not actively developed. See What about further development of /robots.txt? for more discussion.

The rest of this page gives an overview of how to use /robots.txt on your server, with some simple recipes. To learn more see also the FAQ.

How to create a /robots.txt file

Where to put it

The short answer: in the top-level directory of your web server.

The longer answer:

When a robot looks for the “/robots.txt” file for URL, it strips the path component from the URL (everything from the first single slash), and puts “/robots.txt” in its place.

For example, for “ it will remove the “/shop/index.html “, and replace it with “/robots.txt “, and will end up with “”.

So, as a web site owner you need to put it in the right place on your web server for that resulting URL to work. Usually that is the same place where you put your web site’s main “index.html ” welcome page. Where exactly that is, and how to put the file there, depends on your web server software.

Remember to use all lower case for the filename: “robots.txt “, not “Robots.TXT.

What to put in it

The “/robots.txt” file is a text file, with one or more records. Usually contains a single record looking like this:

In this example, three directories are excluded.

Note that you need a separate “Disallow” line for every URL prefix you want to exclude — you cannot say “Disallow: /cgi-bin/ /tmp/” on a single line. Also, you may not have blank lines in a record, as they are used to delimit multiple records.

Note also that globbing and regular expression are not supported in either the User-agent or Disallow lines. The ‘*’ in the User-agent field is a special value meaning “any robot”. Specifically, you cannot have lines like “User-agent: *bot*”, “Disallow: /tmp/*” or “Disallow: *.gif”.

What you want to exclude depends on your server. Everything not explicitly disallowed is considered fair game to retrieve. Here follow some examples:

To exclude all robots from the entire server
To allow all robots complete access

(or just create an empty “/robots.txt” file, or don’t use one at all)

To exclude all robots from part of the server
To exclude a single robot
To allow a single robot
To exclude all files except one

This is currently a bit awkward, as there is no “Allow” field. The easy way is to put all files to be disallowed into a separate directory, say “stuff”, and leave the one file in the level above this directory: Alternatively you can explicitly disallow all disallowed pages:

A Brilliant File Verification tool: A Second Opinion For Your Data’s Integrity


A Brilliant File Verification tool: A Second Opinion For Your Data’s Integrity

A brilliant file verification tool gives you a second opinion for your data’s integrity

All of us copy files from time to time, whether that is just moving some valuable documents to a thumb drive, backing up some folders from one hard drive to another, or using a synchronization program to make duplicates of important data. Many of us have probably also experienced the gut-wrenching feeling when we discover that those copies which we were depending on turn out to be damaged or corrupted in some way and are unusable.

Many file backup and folder synchronization programs perform some sort of file verification on their own. Still from time to time I have seen where even that has failed because of a bug or another glitch. When you simply copy files using Windows Explorer, cycle redundancy checks (CRC) are performed on files to help insure copy integrity, yet occasionally you still end up with corrupt files on the other end.

To avoid such problems, special tools have been developed to do more thorough checks in order to confirm the consistency of files. Most of these tools employ various checksum or hash check methods to examine the contents of each file for discrepancies. Every file has an unique checksum so if the file is changed in the slightest way it will be detected.

This technique has been commonly used to make sure files downloaded from the Internet are complete and unchanged in any way. If you have ever seen a string of numbers called a MD5 or SHA1 sum listed next to a file download that is what those are there for. This same technique can also be used to verify that the files you copy from one location to another are complete and unchanged.

ExactFile is the only free checksum utility I have found that includes a feature which makes it truly easy to do hash checks on large sets of files.

I copied some very large files from one drive to another last night – had a hardware problem that corrupted at least some of them, I’m afraid. today I’m using Nirsoft HashMyfiles to generate hashes for both the source and destination files. It’s very slow, apparently now reading only about 25MB/sec. Pretty sure it’s not the fault of the software, but rather of other factors (drives are in external dock connected via esata, other programs running, etc.)

So I am definitely looking for a program that would verify very large files FAST. I wonder if there is a file copy program that can generate hashes for source and destination files during the file copy? Or could that be trusted?

Anyway thanks for the links. Will definitely try them out.

How to successfully recover data from a failed RAID

Recovering data from a failed RAID can easily turn into a costly ordeal. Please read this page carefully before proceeding. If you would like to get help from experts, please consider using our fee-based RAID recovery service.

First determine whether the RAID is hardware-based or software-based. The recovery procedures are very different.

Recovering a hardware RAID

First determine if the problem is caused by the underlying RAID mechanism. If it is not, follow the simpler recovery procedures for an ordinary drive. The following causes of problem are not related to the RAID:

  • Virus attacks.
  • The volume being deleted, resized, reformatted or otherwise changed in Disk Manager or other disk management utilities.

If the problem seems to be in the RAID mechanism, determine the operating state of the RAID and take the appropriate actions.

Avoid the most common mistakes that may cause data to become unrecoverable.

Hardware RAID operating states

Current status is normal.
No controller or disk errors.
No recent change in RAID configuration.

RAID is displayed as a single disk.

Hard Drive Data Recovery
with Disk Drill for Windows

Data loss costs businesses and individuals around the world billions each year in lost revenues. While hard drives are becoming more reliable with each passing year, they still leave a lot to be desired. Virtually all IT professionals preach the importance of backing up critical data but only a few know how to effectively deal with data loss. Those who do know recommend Disk Drill — a premier free hard drive data recovery software for Windows.

Free version recovers up to 1GB

Disk Drill for Windows is unique because it can undelete files from the emptied Recycle Bin by looking at the underlying file system. With the free version of Disk Drill for Windows, it’s possible to find all lost files and recover up to 1GB of data. In other words, you can download a professional application used by some of the world’s largest enterprises and use it to recover your lost documents and files without paying a single cent — a value like this is hard to come by.

#1 Successfully recover files from hard drive

Disk Drill is designed to work straight out of the box, requiring almost no user input. Still, there’s one crucial thing you can do to increase your chances of successful recovery: act quickly. Your hard drive is like a living, breathing organism. Just like cells in the human body constantly regenerate, so does the content of your hard drive changes. As you create files, download stuff from the internet, perform system maintenance, or watch online videos, your operating system is writing and rewriting huge quantities of data. When you delete something, you’re essentially telling your system that the deleted file may be overwritten. Once something else is stored in its place, even Disk Drill won’t help you get it back.

When you find out that you’ve accidentally deleted a file, stop whatever you’re doing and download and install Disk Drill right away. If you act quickly, you are almost guaranteed to get your file back intact.

#2 How to perform hard drive recovery

To recover files from hard drive using Disk Drill for Windows, all you have to do is press the Recover button. Disk Drill requires as little user input as possible, and there’s no way how you could mess something up. Even though the software is self-explanatory, we’ve also prepared an extensive online knowledge base that covers all common data recovery scenarios, including how to recover data from hard drive or how to perform external hard drive data recovery.

#3 Free hard drive recovery software

One of the best things about Disk Drill for Windows is the fact that you can try it for free. Recover up to 1GB to test how it works and decide whether you need more. When you see just how useful it is to have the ability to install recover any deleted files, we’re convinced that you’ll want to keep Disk Drill installed on your system indefinitely.

Disk Drill automatically scans your whole hard drive, looking for lost or deleted files. You can choose whether you would like Disk Drill to quickly scan the content of your hard drive or perform deep analysis of the underlying file system. With support for over 300 file formats and all popular storage devices, you can rest assured knowing that you will see your missing files again in no time.

How to recover data
from hard drive for free

Disk Drill for Windows comes with a number of useful data recovery, protection, and management tools. These tools can help you better organize the content of your hard drive, monitor its health, and back up your most important files and folders. Even though they could be sold as stand-alone products, they are included with Disk Drill for free. One of them is the Recovery Vault, which is like a deposit box for files that you absolutely can’t afford to lose. Once a file is in the Recovery Vault, Disk Drill will proactively monitor its status and create backups.

#4 Hard drive recovery – final steps

Once Disk Drill finishes the data recovery process, it will present you with a list of files. Select anything you deem worthy of recovering and choose the destination folder for restored data. Confirm your selection, and that’s all! Your data are now recovered and ready to be used. As you can see, hard drive recovery with Disk Drill for Windows couldn’t be simpler.

Disk Drill for Windows supports all external hard drives and USB flash drives. Once you connect an external storage device to your Windows computer, you will be able to recover files from it using Disk Drill.

Disk Image Software

January 8 2014, Richard Pardoe,
technology blogger

Imagine the situation: you’ve just created an image of a really valuable disk. Maybe it’s an image of favourite DVD that you’re taking on holiday, or perhaps it’s a backup of a solid state hard drive containing critical business data.

October 9 2013, Richard Pardoe,
technology blogger

Data is a precious commodity, and a significant data loss can cause havoc in your personal life, career or business.

In today’s digital age, we’re all well aware of the importance of backups. But how many of us are really doing them regularly? If the computer you were reading this on suddenly died, would all your crucial data be safely stowed away somewhere else and easily recoverable?

Keep Your Data Safe Using Disk Image Software

August 27 2013, James Ford
a computer specialist for a medium-sized company

Disk image software provides the ultimate solution to data backup since it allows you to make a complete, byte-by-byte copy of an entire disk without the risk of missing anything important.

An error appears indicating the CreateSnapshotSet() failed. What should I do?

August 8 2012, RobinZon
a data backup software reviewer

If you, like me, find yourself in a constant struggle, trying to keep your computer under control in terms of starting up and keeping your data safe; you should try Disk Image, a program I recently started using. In short, the name describes what it does.

This software helps create a disk image of your computer, which is basically like a backup of your entire machine (you can choose to save less if you want). What’s awesome about this software though is that it comes with more than just the tools to do that. It also comes with a powerful feature called “Boot Disk”. But I’ll talk about that later on in this… review, I guess?

Tips – Send Email with attachment of any format #sap,abap,tips,tutorials,email, #any #format,


Send Email with attachment of any format

By Amit Bisht, Infosys

Target Readers: SAP ABAP developers with basic knowledge of Report Programming, Classes and Methods.

Keywords: Email Body Design, Creating Attachment and Classes ( CL_DOCUMENT_BCS ).

Purpose of the document: Step by step procedure to learn how to send an Email with attachment of any Format.

1. The method used here for creating and Emailing an attachment is very lucid i.e. the user does not have to bother about the format of the file. which he needs to send as an attachment, as the below method requires only the file-path and the receiver’s Email ID(s).

2. SAP has provided a variety of features for sending an Email to an external ID which are dependent (limitation) on the file formats of the attachments.

3. Many a times there is a requirement where in we need to send the data from a SAP to external Email IDs. If we are sure about the Attachment format, we can easily figure out the best suited Function Module (SAP has provided) and its parameters required to achieve the functionality, for the attachment to be Emailed.

4. This method of sending Email accepts any format of the Attachment i.e. it can be directly used to attach and send any kind of an Attachment via Email.

Steps involved Emailing the Attachment:

Uploading the document (to be E-mailed) to SAP.

  • Framing the body of the Email.
  • Creating the Attachment.
  • Sending the Email using Classes and its Methods.

  • 1. Uploading the Document to SAP:

    For uploading the document to SAP, function Module ‘GUI_UPLOAD’ is used with the below mentioned input parameters i.e. filename, file-type.

    The document data should be uploaded in Binary Format ; hence an internal table (T_MAILHEX in this case) of SOLIX type (Binary data, Length 255 characters) is used to hold the data uploaded into SAP. Once the internal table is populated with the document data it can be used to create the attachment and send it via Email.

    2. Framing the body of the Email:

    In order to Frame the body of the Email we can create Text Symbols with the texts to be used in the body of the Email.

    Once Text Symbols have been created we can populate them into an Internal Table of type SOLISTI1 (Single List with Column Length 255) in the sequence, in which they should appear in the body of the Email.

    1. In the below read Statement we are reading the entire text pool into the Internal table TL_TEXTPOOL of type TEXTPOOL.

    2. Internal table T_CONTENTS can now be populated with the Text symbols as per the sequence of the Texts (or sentences) required in the mail body.

    “Key” above refers to the Text Symbol.

    Once the body of the Email is ready (Table T_CONTENTS is populated) we proceed further towards creating the Attachment using the data in Internal table T_MAILHEX (populated in the step-1 above).

    For creating the Email we need to use the Method Create_Document of Class CL_DOCUMENT_BCS which requires parameters as follows:

    1. i_type: Document Class, here we are using HTML format for creating the mail body (i.e. “HTM”).

    2. i_text: Data to appear in the body of the mail, (T_CONTENTS data).

    3. i_length: Length of the document (Mail Body).

    4. i_subject: Subject of the Email.

    3. Creating the Attachment using Classes:

    Now to create the attachment we use the data uploaded to SAP in Point number 1 (uploading data to SAP) and method ADD_ATTACHMENT of the class CL_DOCUMENT_BCS as below.

    1. i_attachment_type: Extension of the file.

    2. i_attachment_subject: Subject of the Attachment.

    3. i_att_content_hex: Data (of the Document to be attached) uploaded to internal table T_MAILHEX in point number 1 (uploading data to SAP).

    4. Sending the Email using Classes:

    Finally, after creating the mail body and the attachment we can send the Email using SEND method of Class CL_BCS.

    Where in, the result of the method (whether the mail is sent successfully or not) is captured in the parameter result.

    Some useful Tips about HTML:

    1. ‘ FONT face=Arial size=2 ‘. is used to set the Font and Size of the text in the Email.

    2. ‘ br ‘. is used to insert a new line.

    3. ‘ A href= ‘. is used to start a Hyperlink in the Email body.

    4. ‘ /A ‘. is used to end a hyperlink.

    5. ‘ nbsp;’. is used to give a space in between two texts in the mail body.

    6. For more information on HTML please visit the link http://w

    You can also attach Audio and Video files using the above method but there are some size constraints (i.e. if the data is huge, by the time it is converted into binary format, the session might terminate).

    Below, I have attached a demo Program for sending attachment of any format via Email.

    Click here for the report Program for attaching and sending files (any format) via Email.

    Text Symbols used in the above Example:

    001 Please enter at-least one file name

  • 002 Error in reading file for upload
  • 003 Approval Mail Sent Successfully
  • 004 Approval Mail Not Successful
  • T01 Attachment Detail
  • T02 Reciever’s EmailID
  • T04 You can change/add the Text here by changing/adding the text elements and the code.
  • T05 For giving spaces between texts, you can use HTML Keyword: nbsp .
  • T06 For Ex; Employee Numbers:
  • T07 For more information on HTML, Please visit:
  • T08 Email with Attached document

  • Selection Texts used:

    S_MAILID Email ID

    I have only attached the Screen Shots of the Test Emails (so that the document size won’t increase)

    1. A PDF Attachment with Embedded images

    2. MP3 Attachment

    After reading this tutorial you should be able to:

    · Use classes to attach and send Email.

    · Attach a file (of any format) and send it via Email.

    · Explain briefly about the various HTML key words which can be used to Format the Email body.

    Managing Your Business Credit #business #credit #file


    5 simple steps you should take to manage your business credit

    Determine whether or not you already have a business credit file. Small business owners should first know if they have a business credit file with D B. You can find this out by calling D B Customer Service at 1-866-785-0430 or visiting .

    If you don’t have a business credit file, establish one by applying for a D-U-N-S® number. Small businesses should apply for a D-U-N-S® number, a unique business identification number, as soon as they start their enterprise to start the process of creating a business credit file.

    If, when you call or visit the D B web site, you determine that you already have a business credit file, review it completely to understand what information it contains. Add or modify the information as necessary to ensure that those looking at your business credit (such as vendors, suppliers and financial institutions) are making decisions based on complete and accurate information.

    Establish a business credit history. When they are starting up, many small businesses use their personal credit and finances to get their
    business going. But they should establish a credit history by putting expenses (such as a business phone line) in their business name and using a commercial bank account to pay their bills.

    Pay bills on time – and understand other factors that influence your credit rating. In order to improve your commercial credit scores
    and build a positive payment history, the most important thing to do is pay your bills on time. Be very careful not to overextend your business, and use any line of credit judiciously. While payment behavior is important, credit ratings are based on multiple factors. D B, for example, maintains 150 factors that go into a credit rating, such as industry, revenues and number of employees.

    Monitor your business credit file and keep it up to date. According to D B, the credit score of about one in three businesses declines over just a three-month period. By monitoring your business credit file, you will be aware of any change in your ratings before it affects your relationships with customers, suppliers and financial institutions. You should keep your credit file current and accurate, reflecting changes such as location, number of employees, outstanding suits/liens and revenue – all of which impact your credit rating

    Monitor your customers’ and vendors’ credit. Monitoring credit reports that provide a clear and complete picture of the credit standing of your customers can help you to determine how much credit, and on what terms, you should extend

    Why small businesses should manage their business credit

    Small business owners are entrepreneurs. They are successful because of their ideas, their passion, their drive. But they generally aren’t accountants, and as a result they are often unaware of just how important actively managing business credit is to their success.

    Small business owners agree that cash flow management is one of their top concerns.

    Actively managing their business credit can help small businesses ensure positive cash flow by:

    Securing more financing at better terms. Good credit can ensure that small businesses get financing when they need it. According to the SBA, insufficient or delayed financing is the second most common reason for business failure. And, since most loan decisions below $100k are automated, the business credit file will often dictate the amount and terms of a loan. For businesses with poor credit ratings, top national banks may increase credit card interest rates on average from 9% to 18% and loan interest rates on average from 8% to 12%.

    Ensuring you get needed supplies at affordable terms. Suppliers evaluate your credit and make decisions about how much credit to extend to you – perhaps a $30K credit line could have been $60K with a stronger business credit file. Good business credit can ensure that you get the supplies you need under the best possible terms, freeing up more money for your business.

    Making smarter credit decisions on your customers. Knowing the credit of customers enables small businesses to provide better terms to creditworthy customers and avoid doing business with customers who pay slowly – both of which can lead to improved cash flow.

    Protecting yourself against business identity theft. Actively managing your business credit file helps you ensure that fraudulent or incorrect information is not in the file. 15-30% of all commercial credit losses are due to fraudulent activity. It’s important that your business credit file truly reflects how good your credit is, and that you are aware of any inaccuracies and missing data so you can address them promptly.

    Add a service name to tnsnames.ora file

    Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonConsulting

    When the Oracle DBA creates their tnsnames.ora file to define remote databases they often specify the host name of the foreign server that contains the remote Oracle database.

    For example, a entry in the tnsnames.ora file for a remote database might look like this. In the example, we have added the service name berlin to our tnsnames.ora file:

    berlin =
    (ADDRESS =
    (HOST = hun)
    (PORT = 1521)
    (CONNECT_DATA = (SID = kraus))

    Here we see a TNS service name of berlin. which defines a connection to a remote server named hun that contains an Oracle database named kraus. When a remote connection request is made from the UNIX server, the /etc/host file is accessed to get the IP address for the hum server.

    From the listing below, we see that the hum server is located at In sum, the /etc/host file is used to isolate the IP address from the tnsnames.ora file. If the IP address should ever change, the UNIX systems administrator only needs to change the IP address in one place.

    root cat /etc/hosts hum dopey

    BackupAssist – System State backup and restore #backupassist, #backup #assist, #backup, #back


    System State backup and restore

    What’s included in a System State backup?

    The exact system components that make up your machine’s System State depend on the operating system installed and how it is has been configured. A System State backup generally includes a copy of any installed device drivers and related files, most of the Windows directory, the Windows Registry, the Active Directory configuration (where applicable) and system files under Windows File Protection.

    System State backups for Vista and Server 2008 are usually between 7GB and 15 GB and for XP and Server 2003, they are generally much smaller, being between 200MB and 300 MB. Many files in the Windows directory have multiple hard links. If you are backing up the System State using the File Replication Engine or the Rsync Engine and have Single Instance Store enabled, only a single copy of each multiply linked file will be stored on your backup destination. This data does not need to be copied on subsequent backups, which reduces backup times and saves storage space on your destination.

    Why is a System State backup useful?

    From a System State backup you can restore your Windows system settings in the event of a system failure or corruption. A System State backup is therefore particularly important for disaster recovery purpose as it eliminates you having to reconfigure Windows back to its original state before the system failure occurred.

    We recommended that you always have a recent backup of your System State and that you should perform System State backups on a regular basis, even daily, to increase your level of protection. We also recommended that you perform System State backups before and after any major change is made to your server.

    How to back up the System State

    With BackupAssist v6 you can schedule local* ‘System State only’ backups across all modern Windows operating systems, or even back up the System State as part of a larger backup including files and applications, using File Replication, Zip, or Windows Imaging. A System State backup includes important Windows systems settings, such as the Registry, and is crucial for system recovery.

    *BackupAssist cannot be used to back up the System State of a remote machine; you must install BackupAssist on each server of which you require a System State backup.

    Complete the following steps to configure a BackupAssist job to back up the local machine’s System State:

    1. Launch BackupAssist and either edit an existing File Replication, Zip or Imaging job by selecting Edit from the top menu and choosing the appropriate job, or create a new File Replication, Zip or Imaging job by going to File New backup job .
    2. If you are creating a new job check the Backup local system state option during the Files and Folders step of the Job Creation Wizard.
    3. If you are editing an existing job select Files and folders from the left menu, click the Local system selections tab, and then enable the Backup local system state option .

    How to restore the System State

    Complete the following steps to restore the System Stattefrom a BackupAssist backup using the BackupAssist Restore Console:

    • Note. you cannot restore the System State from an Image backup using the BackupAssist Restore Console. You must use the built-in Windows tool, wbadmin. Visit for instructions.
    1. In BackupAssist, Click Restore in the top navigation bar and choose the BackupAssist Restore Console .
    2. Click Load all known backups to load all backup catalogues located in the BackupAssist settings folder, or use the Browse option to locate the backup set from which you want to restore.
    3. Choose the job that corresponds to the backup from which you want to restore the System State
    4. Use the calendar to select the date of the backup from which you wish to restore.
      • Note. dates for which backups are available are marked in bold on the calendar.
    5. Use the middle pane to expand the loaded backup set and select the System State to restore.
      • Note. files located on the Windows system drive (C: drive in the example above) may be available for restore, even though only the System State was selected for backup. These files are associated with the System State. If you choose to restore individual files from this list and not the System State, the System State will not be restored, and the files themselves may not restore correctly. If you choose to restore these files together with the System State, the System State option will override selections where there is an overlap. If you want to perform a full restore and are unsure which files are included in the System State we recommend selecting both the System State and all other files listed.
    6. Once you have made your selections click the Restore to button on the bottom right of the window.
    7. The restore confirmation screen will then load:
      You can choose to restore the System State either to its original location or to an alternate location of your choosing. If you select an alternate location click [. ] to set an alternate restore path.
    8. Once you have selected where to restore the System State to, click OK to perform the restore.
      • Note. if you are restoring the System State to a machine that hosts Directory Services, you will be prompted to reboot into the Directory Services Restore Mode.
      • Note. During a System State restore the necessary files are copied to a temporary directory and then moved to their correct location after a reboot of the machine. Before the restore starts, the Restore Console will take a VSS snapshot of the volumes to be restored. This allows the user to manually roll back to a pre-restore state, if necessary, using Windows’ previous versions feature.

    Why Do I Need an Attorney if the Other Driver was Insured?

    Car accidents often lead to injuries that require extensive medical treatment, significant recovery time, and physical therapy. Some injuries are severe enough that household and vehicle modifications are required. Accident victims often lose time from work and are able to recover lost wages.

    The first thing to understand is that insurance companies are not on your side. Insurance companies are in the business of making a profit, not in the business of providing you the settlement you justly deserve. Attempting to fight an insurance company is usually futile for an individual injury victim. Insurance companies employ teams of adjusters and lawyers who specialize in reducing or denying payouts. By hiring an aggressive and experienced injury attorney, you level the playing field.

    Page Law Investigates Car Accidents

    Page Law investigates every aspect of your accident, including testimony from witnesses, law enforcement officers, and the physicians who treat your injuries. We examine the physical evidence and personally go to the scene to get a handle on the layout. When the investigation is complete, we strategize to build the most solid case possible on your behalf. We fight huge insurance companies all the time. It’s not scary when you know what you are doing and when you know the rules insurance companies are required to follow. At Page Law, our St. Louis accident lawyers embrace the trenches and never shy away from a battle.

    What is My Car Accident Claim Worth?

    The value of your Missouri or Illinois car accident claim will depend on the nature of your injuries, the extent of your losses, and damages. For example, if you have suffered a major head injury that required surgery, a lengthy hospital stay, and rehabilitation, your claim is likely much larger than a claim for a pulled muscle or other minor injury. Injured car accident victims are entitled to compensation damages such as:

    • Medical expenses related to your accident (including ambulance and emergency room costs, hospitalization costs, and the cost of any future medical treatments resulting from the accident)
    • Pain and suffering
    • Mental anguish and emotional duress
    • Costs of physical therapy and rehabilitation
    • Permanent injury or disability
    • Household and vehicle modifications (such as wheelchair ramps and lifts)
    • Lost wages from missed work
    • Loss of career or earning capacity
    • Reduced earning capacity
    • Hedonic damages for loss of joy of life
    • Punitive damages
    • Wrongful death damages (if you lost a loved one in the accident)

    Protecting Your Rights in Missouri and Illinois

    If you’ve been injured in a car accident, it’s important to talk with a lawyer before talking to any insurance companies involved. Almost all reputable personal injury attorneys offer free initial consultations. Even if you don’t hire a car accident lawyer, at least take an attorney up on their free initial consultation.

    Insurance companies are usually quick to offer a nominal settlement that is not worthy of the damages you’ve suffered. The amount of their settlement offer may not be enough to cover all your losses. For example, it may not cover your future treatment or rehabilitation costs that you are currently unaware of. If you rush into a settlement, you could be put in a position where you have to pay for expensive future treatment out of your own pocket.

    Before you agree to a settlement with an insurance company, contact an attorney who has fought for and won millions of dollars for injury victims. The experienced Missouri and Illinois car accident attorneys at Page Law will aggressively handle your and help secure the maximum compensation for all your injuries, damages, and losses.
