comment ntp server problems. It is panicking and then I am 3hours ahead
@nass If you are using NTP with the hardware clock you need to set the hardware clock to UTC. If you loose network connectivity, ntp may sync to the local clock, but it never sets it. /dev/rtc is the interface to one type of real time clock, but many motherboards use a different clock inteface.

comment Disabling sslv3 on samba4
I dug deeper and it appears SAMBA has its own LDAP/Kerberos services. However, I don't see any options to configure tls ciphers or other options that can be used to disable sslv3.

comment Disabling sslv3 on samba4
Looking through my documentation it appears that Samba uses an LDAP server such as OpenLDAP to provide the LDAP services. Try running `sudo netstat -antp | grep :636 to see which program is listening for LDAP traffic.

comment Disabling sslv3 on samba4
I haven't seen samba4 used as an ldap server. It will connect to the samba4 using the protocols available from the ldap server. Disabling sslv3 on the ldap server will disable its use by samba and other ldap clients.

comment How do devices add DNS entries on a local network?
@GregBell The resolvconf package handles setting up resolv.conf when DHCP connects. It drops a file in /etc/dhcp/dclient-enter-hooks.d.

comment How do devices add DNS entries on a local network?
@GregBell It depends on the distribution. Some distributions use automatic configuration of the resolver configuration. This will include the hooks in the DHCP client to write the DNS server data to a known location and invoke the resolver configuration utility. Otherwise, you need to edit /etc/resolve.conf yourself. When resolv.conf is automatically gernerated, it usually has an warning about editing.

comment Pipe assigns variable
@roaima Some command recognize they are running on a terminal an behave differently than if they are outputting to a pipe. In particular they may truncate lines to the current screen width. For most command the cat command is redundant.
