In this TechTip, the mysteries of working with and understanding Linux filesystem permissions on the command line will be explained and simplified.
By Max Hetrick
When I started with Linux over five years ago, I came from the Windows way of working with files, directories, and users. Most commonly in Windows, you access file and directory permissions by choosing properties, and then you visually change settings. With the Linux desktop environment advancing, you can now easily access permissions similarly, using Linux file browsers. However, if you're going to administer Linux servers, often there is no GUI installed, so you'll need to learn Linux permissions and commands.
Despite being labeled a toaster, Lotus Foundations may be just what SMBs truly need.

As Lotusphere in Orlando wraps up this week, the IBM Lotus product-marketing strategy continues to come into increasingly sharp focus, much the way a football game does as you take your seat in the bleachers and bring in the players on the field by dialing in your binoculars.
I concede that for some time I have wondered how all the products that were under development at Lotus were supposed to work together and how the company was ever going to make money once that happened--if it ever did. I have to confess that I'm beginning to see the light now, and I appreciate more the value of the various collaboration tools companies can choose from to complement the core Lotus Notes and Domino offerings.
Do you struggle to find a reliable, centralized tape-management solution?
By Tom Huntington
Does your IBM i tape-tracking solution handle all your centralized tape-management needs? Are you satisfied with the reporting capabilities and the reliability of your solution? Can you provide a single report for your off-site storage vendor that documents all volumes that are leaving from and arriving at the data center for the current business day? Does your current solution support your automated backup solution too?
Managing volumes across multiple servers running IBM i can present a challenge for any operations team.
