Symfony pdo_sqlsrv Database setup on Ubuntu 16.x

If you have ever tried to connect to a Microsoft sql server from a linux system, you may have run into some issues regarding how to get valid drivers and don’t break your system. After a lot of search I came across this link: https://www.microsoft.com/de-DE/download/details.aspx?id=50420 If you click download, you are able to download a pdf file with installation instructions for mssql drivers on Ubuntu 16.04 (worked on 16.10) and so on. Here are the commands from the instruction manual:

I skipped the last line and deleted „msodbcsql=“ because the mssql-tools have a dependency to the latest msodbcsql 13 drivers and will install them.

After running all these commands I now can go further and talk to my mssql servers with the following Symfony setup (we use DBAL)

Quiet easy if you know how to install the correct drivers 😀

GPOFirefox – Gpo Plugin for Firefox extended

Paul (Nickname Killerx) did a great job with developing the GPO add-on for Firefox called GPOFirefox. There are a couple of Extensions out there, that handle the interface between Firefox and the Registry. That’s in case all you need to do, if you add some of these admx files around for managing Firefox through GPO. Since Paul stopped the development of the Gpofirefox add-on with version 5 of Firefox there are some things, that this add-on can’t handle. First of all, there are some differences between this add-on and other add-ons like for example the one of Frontmotion, which isn’t really a add-on. It’s kind of build into the so called Community Edition of Frontmotion Firefox. The Frontmotion add-on lacks at some point, when you need to change more settings than just the defaults like browser startup homepage, or proxy settings. If you only need these few defaults, I would recommend to use Frontmotions version, instead of any other, because Frontmotion comes with a customized admx file for all default settings in Firefox. The point, where this is not enough is when you want to change settings for example of an extension. Because Frontmotions admx file doesn’t support custom settings,…

YDR – Autoit „unattended“ Lotus Notes 8.5 Installer GUI

Wer kennt es nicht. Man hat eine große Umgebung, keine wirkliche Softwareverteilung zu Hand und will Lotus Notes flächendeckend installieren und zwar so, dass dies überall möglichst ohne große nachkonfiguration des Clients geschieht.
Hierfür habe ich ein „kleines“ Autoit Script geschrieben, dass diverse Aufgaben erledigt.

* Überprüfen, welche Version von Windows läuft
* Den alten Client deinstallieren (7.0.2 in meinem Fall)
* diverse Ordner und Dateien umbenennen um Probleme mit der neuen Version zu vermeiden (Abhängig von der Betriebsystemversion). Hierunter fallen auch alle Benutzer, die sich auf dem Computer jemals angemeldet haben und evtl. noch alte Dateien und Ordner der vorherigen Installation im Profil liegen haben.
* Den neuen Client installieren (8.5.1 in meinem Fall)
* Conf.txt erstellen, die den Notes Client initial vorkonfiguriert
