The serveradmin command has an option to run commands. I’ve talked about these in past articles, for doing tasks like asking how many concurrent NFS connections are open on a host. Well, here’s another, and it’s a simple command. Here, we’re going to look at whether the Open Directory server has a CA. To do so, we’ll use the serveradmin command, along with the command verb. Then, we’ll add the certs option, followed by command= and then the payload of the command. In this case that’s isODCAPresent:
sudo serveradmin command certs:command = isODCAPresent
This is a simple, informational command, similar to the web:command of getSites or the mail:command of getConnectedUsers. Enjoy!
Today’s post about Office 365 was written by Gordon Loeb, chief operating officer at Loeb Consulting Group.
Loeb Consulting Group grew out of my wife Natalie’s expertise and passion about helping people reach their potential at work. It all started about 17 years ago, when Natalie began consulting for the law firm where she had worked as a training manager designing professional development programs. Her drive to help people achieve as much as they can in the workplace and enjoy what they do is responsible for the growth of her consulting business.
I joined her full-time about two and a half years ago, and today, with four employees and 25 consultants working across the United States and in the United Kingdom, Loeb Consulting Group has reached a juncture in its evolution.

For many years, Office on Windows has offered users the ability to embed fonts within electronic documents such as Word documents or PDF files. However, we often get questions about the font embedding feature and today are providing you with details on what font embedding is and how you can use in your electronic documents.
Put simply, font embedding is taking a digital font file and including it within another digital file. Usually when people refer to font embedding they are talking about document font embedding. Document font embedding ensures that the recipient of a document can view it properly even if they don’t have the fonts you used to create it installed on their machine.

When you install those software titles with automation, you can clear the attribute that causes the prompt, so you don’t get a lot of confusion from end users. TO do so, use the xattr command, using -d to delete the com.apple.quarantine attribute. Here, we’re going to do so recursively, using the -r option and finally defining the application:
sudo xattr -d -r com.apple.quarantine /Applications/iExplorer.app
When you run a kill command to stop a process from bash or the javax.realtime.POSIXSignalHandler class, you’re sending what’s known as a POSIX signal to the process. These signals can be called via their numeric representations or the signal (e.g. with the -s option of the kill command). Signals include the following:
