Browsing Mailbox Databases in Exchange 2007 and 2010

09:16 Рубрика: Ацкий одмин


A reader asks whether it is possible to browse through mailbox databases to view the details and statistics of the mailboxes they host on Exchange Server 2007 and 2010. You might recall this was simple to achieve using the Exchange Server 2003 System Manager tools.

The nearest equivalent feature in the Exchange Management Console is using filters in the Recipient Configuration/Mailboxes section of the console.

19:38 Рубрика: Ацкий одмин


В связи с постоянно растущим интересом ИТ-специалистов к сфере серверной виртуализации в целом, так и решениям на базе ПО от Microsoft в частности, сегодня я начинаю цикл статей, посвященных замечательному продукту Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 R2. Хочу отметить, что все нижеизложенное основывается на реальном опыте использовании группы серверов Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 в production-среде. В данной статье я максимально подробно расскажу о первоначальной настройке среды Hyper-V Server 2012 R2. Кстати, Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 можно скачать с официального сайта Technet Microsoft.


Синхронизация времени на виртуальных машинах Hyper-V

13:17 Рубрика: Ацкий одмин

Привет, столкнулся на работе с проблемкой. На виртуальных машинах рассинхронизировалось время, могло уехать на несколько часов за сутки. Причем виртуалки находятся на кластере Hyper-V Server, и кластер в собственном домене. Было принято решение настроить синхронизацию времени домена с внешнего источника времени.

Лицензирование Windows Server 2012

22:26 Рубрика: Ацкий одмин

С выходом Windows Server 2012 Microsoft серьезно пересмотрела правила лицензирования, с учетом последних тенденций в отрасли. В частности, уделено самое пристальное внимание виртуальным средам, а также существенно изменена продуктовая линейка. Надо сказать, что это пошло только на пользу, схема стала намного проще и понятнее, сохранив при этом общие принципы лицензирования. Самое время познакомиться с предметом более подробно.

Accessible HTML5 Video Player

12:09 Рубрика: Web Development

by the PayPal Accessibility Team

See the Authors section below for details.

What is it?

A lightweight HTML5 video player which includes support for captions and screen reader accessibility. For details, read the blog post Introducing an Accessible HTML5 Video Player on the PayPal Engineering blog.


  • Provides an HTML5 video player with custom controls.
  • Supports captions; simply denote a VTT caption file using the standard HTML5 video syntax.
  • Uses native HTML5 form controls for volume (range input) and progress indication (progress element).
  • Accessible to keyboard-only users and screen reader users.
  • Option provided to set captions on or off by default (upon loading).
  • Option provided to set number of seconds by which to rewind and forward.
  • The width adjusts to the width of the video element.
  • No dependencies. Written in "vanilla" JavaScript.
  • When JavaScript is unavailable, the browser's native controls are used.


CSS and Image

Insert the CSS in the Head of your HTML document. You'll also need to upload the sprite image (or use your own) and adjust the path in the CSS file.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/css/px-video.css" />


Insert the HTML5 video markup in the Body of your HTML document. Replace the video, poster, and caption URLs. Modify the sizes of video and fallback image as needed.

<div class="px-video-container" id="myvid">
    <div class="px-video-img-captions-container">
        <div class="px-video-captions hide" aria-hidden="true"></div>
        <video width="640" height="360" poster="media/foo.jpg" controls>
            <source src="foo.mp4" type="video/mp4" />
            <source src="foo.webm" type="video/webm" />
            <track kind="captions" label="English captions" src="media/foo.vtt" srclang="en" default />
                <a href="foo.mp4">
                    <img src="media/foo.jpg" width="640" height="360" alt="download video" />
    <div class="px-video-controls"></div>


Insert the JavaScript file right before the closing Body element of your HTML document. Add a Script element to initialize the video. Options are passed in JSON format. The options are:

  • videoId: the value of the ID of the widget container (string) [required]
  • captionsOnDefault: denotes whether to show or hide caption upon loading (boolean) [optional, default is true]
  • seekInterval: the number of seconds to rewind and fast forward (whole number) [optional, default is 10]
  • videoTitle: short title of video; used for aria-label attribute on Play button to clarify to screen reader user what will be played (text) [optional, default is "Play"]
  • debug: turn console logs on or off (boolean) [optional, default is false]
<script src="js/px-video.js"></script>
// Initialize
new InitPxVideo({
    "videoId": "myvid",
    "captionsOnDefault": true,
    "seekInterval": 20,
    "videoTitle": "clips of stand-up comedy",
    "debug": true

Browser Support

  • Chrome: full support.
  • Safari: full support.
  • Firefox: full support.
  • Internet Explorer 10, 11: full support.
  • Internet Explorer 9: native video player used (aesthetic choice since HTML5 range input and progress element are not supported).
  • Internet Explorer 8: renders fallback content of video element (in the demo, this is an image linked to the video file).
  • Smartphones and tablets: controls and captions are not customized as both are natively supported in latest versions.

Limitations and Known Issues

  • Currently, only one caption file per video is supported.
  • Only VTT caption files are supported (not SRT nor TTML). VTT cue settings are not supported but inline styles function (see first few lines of example).
  • The controls have a minimum width of 360px.

Make a debian xbmc box in about an hour

15:51 Рубрика: XBMC

We're making a minimal htpc today kids. Grab your gear and follow along.


  • core2duo 2.6
  • 1GB DDR2
  • 200GB sata drive
  • Geforce 8600gt


  • Minimal install of debian wheezy
  • xbmc run from nodm
  • media files stored on NFS share

Install Debian

First install a minimal debian installation. Pop in a boot stick and run through the installer. Simple stuff. Only thing to note is that we are looking for MINIMAL, so when it asks you which package groups you want, don't select anything (well, maybe ssh).

Install needed packages


aptitude install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau xserver-xorg-video-vesa nodm xorg-common x11-session-utils xinit alsa nfs-common xbmc xbmc-bin xbmc-common xbmc-data xbmc-eventclients-common xbmc-eventclients-dev xbmc-eventclients-j2me xbmc-eventclients-ps3 xbmc-eventclients-wiiremote xbmc-eventclients-xbmc-send xbmc-skin-confluence xbmc-standalone

Configure nodm

Edit nodm config to start on boot, and to run as the correct user

vi /etc/default/nodm
# nodm configuration                                                                                                                                                                
# Set NODM_ENABLED to something different than 'false' to enable nodm                                                                                                               
# User to autologin for                                                                                                                                                             
# First vt to try when looking for free VTs                                                                                                                                         
# X session                                                                                                                                                                         
# Options for the X server                                                                                                                                                          
NODM_X_OPTIONS='-nolisten tcp'                                                                                                                                                      
# If an X session will run for less than this time in seconds, nodm will wait an                                                                                                    
# increasing bit of time before restarting the session.                                                                                                                             

Configure NFS

Test that nfs works

mount /mnt
ls /mnt
umount /mnt

Make a new nfs moutpoint

mkdir /penny
chmod 755 /penny/

Add to fstab

echo "    /penny  nfs     ro      0       0" >> /etc/fstab


mount /penny/
ls /penny

Graphics setup (without touching X configs!)

Run to allow normal users to start X (Might not be needed)

dpkg-reconfigure x11-common

Edit to remove "quiet" and add "nomodeset". For me, this was all that was needed to make tv out work.

vi /etc/default/grub
# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
# For full documentation of the options in this file, see:
#   info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'

GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`

# Uncomment to enable BadRAM filtering, modify to suit your needs
# This works with Linux (no patch required) and with any kernel that obtains
# the memory map information from GRUB (GNU Mach, kernel of FreeBSD ...)

# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)

# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'

# Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter to Linux

# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries

# Uncomment to get a beep at grub start
GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1"

Create .xsession for nodm/xbmc user

  su silver
  cd ~
  vi .xsession
chmod +x .xsession

Reboot the box and see if it works!

At this point you should have xbmc up, and nfs mounted. You may now configure xbmc as you see fit.
