Why is it that from my home directory I can use SSH with public key authentication to log into another host without being prompted for a password?
When you are fixing bugs in existing code, it is easy to fall into the habit of finding the “mistake” in the code and adjusting the code to avoid the mistake.
Today, a customer asked me how much disk storage a single VOS module can address. Here is my response.
I was recently asked why Stratus was not providing security updates for customers running OpenSSL on releases of VOS prior to 17.0, when we are still providing updates to customers running OpenSSL on VOS 14.7 on Continuum.
Starting in OpenVOS Release 18.0, VOS System Administrators will be able to select one of 3 new password encryption algorithms. This post provides an overview of these changes.
Recently, a customer wrote to Stratus Customer Service to ask whether we could recommend an “atomic clock” for use with his OpenVOS system.
VOS stream files are limited in growth to about 2 GB. This is because the definition of interfaces such as s$seq_position, s$get_port_status, s$lock_region, etc.
VM regions are often used as sharable address spaces in VOS applications. This is a very efficient way of allowing multiple processes to access the same set of addresses.
Does your office have a modern photocopier? One that accepts output via TCP/IP? If so, you can probably configure the OpenVOS spooler to send files to it. Here’s how.
