Linux Tip : How to fix Route issues

Today we are going to learn how to fix route issues on Linux. Suppose you have 2 NIC interface (one is for public traffic - 100 GBPS Link and other one in Private interface for private communication 10 GBPS Link ). What is the exact issue ? Initially our customers reported that they were unable to reach internet on the box (They tried performing ping 8.8.8.8 -or- ping google.com). It was not working via both IP and domain name even tried with browser. So lets begin the troubleshooting : Step 1 : Replicate the issue from your side, because we need to be 100% sure before deep diving. Step 2 : We were able to replicate the same. It was 100% packet loss. So now we need to check if the public interface is up and running or not . Our public interface is eth1 so run command : ip a This will show you if interface is UP / Down. Eth1 was up and running here. Step 3 : Next I was interested to see how is the traffic going out - is it crossing any single hop or not , whether Gateway is reachable

PowerShell Tip : How to copy a file remotely using WINRM

Today, we are going to see how to copy a file to remote destination using WINRM. Traditionally SMB Protocol (File Sharing \\Servername\C$) was used to transfer the files but nowadays you will find SMB Protocol disabled on some servers so you will require firewall changes to perform that.  On the other hand WINRM Protocol 5985 is mostly open for Powershell Remote sessions, so we will use that to transfer the files. Lets get started : Step 1 : Create a PS Session for that server  $Session = New-PSSession -ComputerName <ServerName> Step 2 : Use Copy-Item with -ToSession to transfer the file using WINRM Copy-Item -Path C:\Scripts\Amar\TestFile.txt -ToSession $Session -Destination "D:\" TestFile.txt file will get copied from local system to the D Drive of the remote server.
