When i execute brew install mongodb the error message above appears :

Error: No available formula with the name "mongodb"
==> Searching for a previously deleted formula (in the last
month)...
Warning: homebrew/core is shallow clone. To get complete history
run:git -C "$(brew --repo homebrew/core)" fetch --unshallow
Error: No previously deleted formula found.
==> Searching for similarly named formulae...
Error: No similarly named formulae found.
==> Searching taps...
==> Searching taps on GitHub...
Error: No formulae found in taps.

How i solve this problem:

The formula mongodb has been removed from homebrew-core.  So i need to use a custom tap made by mongodb team

I used the following commands

brew update
brew tap mongodb/brew
brew install mongodb-community
sudo mkdir /data/db
chmod -Rv <myusername> /data/db

Now i can run mongod to start the server or if you want you can use brew services start mongodb-community

Just setup this on a customer today. Befor this setup you need to install a certificate on your server.

SMTP sessions conducted over a standard TCP/IP channel are vulnerable to eavesdropping because the unencoded transmission can be easily intercepted. To protect SMTP communications, servers can use transport-layer security (TLS), more commonly known as SSL encryption, to provide privacy and authentication.

Some servers support SSL for SMTP communications by sending and receiving SMTP traffic through the SSL port (port 465 by default) only. However, because this requires that both the sending and receiving servers support SMTP over SSL, this solution isn’t always practical.

To provide SSL security for SMTP transfers over TCP/IP, Domino® supports the use of negotiated SSL. In a negotiated SSL scheme, the sending and receiving hosts each use the SMTP STARTTLS extension, defined in RFC 2487, to signal their readiness to negotiate an SSL connection. The receiving server displays the STARTTLS keyword in response to the sending server’s EHLO command. The sending server issues the STARTTLS command to request the creation of a secure connection. After the initial TLS handshake completes successfully, the two parties proceed to set up an SSL channel between them. Both the sending and receiving server must possess SSL certificates.

Supporting STARTTLS for outbound SMTP sessions

A Domino server configured to use negotiated SSL for outbound mail connects to the receiving server’s SMTP TCP/IP port (port 25 by default). If the initial SMTP response from the receiving server indicates that it supports the STARTTLS extension, Domino issues the STARTTLS command to request the use of SSL to encrypt the rest of the session.

If the receiving server did not advertise support for STARTTLS in response to the Domino server’s EHLO command, the sending Domino server continues with an unencrypted SMTP TCP/IP session.

To enable outbound STARTTLS support, set the SMTP outbound TCP/IP port status to: Negotiated SSL.

I have this problem today after i change my account on my macbook.

The solution that worked for me was to delete the OneDrive Cached Credential key from the Keychain. The procedure was the following:

  1. Launch Spotlight Search (shortcut: command + space), type keychain, and press return. This should launch the Keychain Access app.
  2. Type OneDrive into the Keychain Access search box. This should show a short list of keys related to OneDrive.
  3. Click on the key called “OneDrive Standalone Cached Credential” or some variant thereof.
  4. Press the delete key (or use the menu item Edit > Delete) to delete the cached credential key.
  5. Restart  OneDrive.
  6. Enter your user and password again.

I found the solution above on Apple forum.

Node-Red 1.0 released today.

Some new features:

Asynchronous message passing

This release changes the message passing between nodes to be always asynchronous rather than it being sometimes asynchronous and sometimes synchronous depending on the implementation of individual nodes.

Node Send API

Nodes now have a new API available for how they handle messages in the runtime. This API allows them to tell the runtime when they have finished with a message.

This will help the runtime to track nodes as they flow through the system – enabling future features such as automatic timeouts of nodes.

To go along with this change, we’ve introduced a new Complete node. This node can be targeted at another node, like the Catch node, and it will be triggered when the targeted node finishes handling a message.

Cloning messages

A knock-on effect of the async messaging change is a change to how the Function node clones messages. It used to avoid cloning messages if it could, but this led to hard to detect issues once the async message change was introduced.

So now the Function node will also clone all of the messages you pass to node.send().

If you have a flow that depends on the message not being cloned, you’ll need to update your flow to request the runtime not to do the cloning.

The course isn’t quite for total beginners as it assumes people have done a little programming in JavaScript or played around with the MIT-developed Scratch visual programming language aimed at kids.

But it could help beginners kick-start ambitions to build machine-learning apps, web applications, or automate processes on a desktop.

The Configuration Comparison Tool (CCT) is a lightweight wsadmin script and Python report generation script which will produce HTML reports on configuration settings for the following types of resources.

  • Application Servers
  • Node Agents
  • Global Security configuration (not Domain Security)
  • Trust Association (Global and Domain)
  • SSL Configurations
  • Data Sources
  • J2C Resource Adapters
  • JDBC Drivers
  • Object Cache instances
  • Servlet Cache instances
  • Service Integration Bus instances
  • Resource Environment Providers
  • Resource Environment Entries
  • File system comparisons

CCT usage scenarios:

  • Isolating configuration creep: Periodic configuration snapshots can be gathered and archived. These can be used to see what configuration changes that have been made over time.
  • Troubleshooting inconsistent cluster member configuration: Servers and node/server specific resource configuration anomalies can causes unexpected runtime behavior from different servers within a cluster.
  • Assisting in migration to a new version of WebSphere: Cross version configuration reports can help ensure a complete migration of server and resource settings.

A webcast is scheduled to September 12 about this tool

One of my apps does not start after a restart. I changed several things on the Node-Red app and i think the restart will be a good idea.

On the logs view there was no good messages to see what is happening with Node-Red

So i start the terminal and go to use IBM cloud CLI

to get the app log just logon and type ibmcloud cf logs [appname] > log.txt

I saw the following messages

Node-Red was unable  connect to Cloudant. But not was changed on Cloudant side.

I changed the Title of the app to another name before the restart, that was the cause of the problem.

I think there is a relation between the APP name and the Cloudant Service linked to the app

After i change the app name to the old one, Node-Red starts again.

I’m working on projects that involve many technologies and frameworks.

Particularly in one of our projects the IceGuard many things have been used such as Flutter for mobile application, Node-Red for  integrations,  IBM Cloud and IBM Watson IoT services.

We have reached a point where an asset management application such as sensors and gateways is required.

The application has the requirements:

1 – Run OffLine and Web

2 – Data replication

3 – Authentication and  Data security

4 – Integration with other applications.

5 – Implement a simple flow of approval.

Another detail is that we needed it to be developed rapidly.

Much is said that the Lotus IBM HCL Notes & Domino is dead.

Not for my case. If I were to use another product (s)/technologies I would spend two working days at least to architect the entire application, choose the Framworks to do the job, not to mention  database modeling,  authentication service, etc., etc.

With the HCL Notes & Domino i create the application in just one day!

It is a simple application, but that solved a real problem of my project.

Notes & Domino do the job.

These are my steps to create a MySQL Docker container, i am using Docker for Mac.

1 – Create a folder to save the database. If you do not create a Docker volume you will loose your data when you restart your container.  My folder is /Users/keniocarvalho/VolumesDocker/mysqdata

2- Execute the command bellow:

docker run –name mysqldb -p 3306:3306 -v /Users/keniocarvalho/VolumesDocker/mysqdata/:/var/lib/mysql -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=password -d mysql/mysql-server:latest

3 – Enter on the mysql container using the command :  docker exec -it mysqldb bash

4 – Inside the container type : mysql -uroot -p. The system will ask for the password. Here the password is password.

5 – To access the database from outside the container run this commands on the mysql console:

CREATE USER ‘root’@’%’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘root’;

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO ‘root’@’%’ WITH GRANT OPTION;

FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

Verify the permission:

mysql> SELECT host, user FROM mysql.user;
+———–+——————+
| host | user |
+———–+——————+
| % | root |
| localhost | healthchecker |
| localhost | mysql.infoschema |
| localhost | mysql.session |
| localhost | mysql.sys |
| localhost | root |
+———–+——————+

Now you can access the mysql from outside of the container using port 3306  from any host.

Obs: This is not a setup for Production use only in your development workstation.

Last week i got back my Macbook Pro 15 2016, after 10 days.  The laptop go to service on an Apple Technical Assistance here in my city.

My first Macbook Pro (Mid 2012) works for 5 years without issues.

The first problem was the speakers. Sound was horrible.  The problem is the same described on this link.

The second problem was the battery. With only 86 cycles a message about to service the battery appears.

The third problem was #staingate. 

Apple replace all parts of my Macbook. The service is ok until now.

Lots of problems with this expensive machine. The quality is not the same anymore.
