We are pleased to announce the availability of early code relating to the porting of MIT Kerberos to the Android platform.
This joint work was led by the team at ya SSL, and represents the first stages towards developing full support for the Android platform.
Some time ago I read that one of the distinguishing characteristics of an effective system administrator / engineer is laziness.
It seemed a little contradictory at first but the author then proceeded to explain why: if a sysadmin spends most of his time solving issues and doing repetitive tasks, you can suspect he or she is not doing things quite right.
In other words, an effective system administrator / engineer should develop a plan to perform repetitive tasks with as less action on his / her part as possible, and should foresee problems by using, for example, the tools reviewed in Part 3 – Monitor System Activity Reports Using Linux Toolsets of this series.
Thus, although he or she may not seem to be doing much, it’s because most of his / her responsibilities have been taken care of with the help of shell scripting, which is what we’re going to talk about in this tutorial.
This, in my opinion, is the first part to any future more advanced integration.
First, you must allow the Linux server full rights and access to the Windows workgroup and local domain.
