Quick Tech Tips - Part 1

This is a series of short commands or scripts that help you do a simple Windows or Linux task. Basically a collection of cool hacks I find around the 'net.

Windows - Resync time on Windows boxes:

  • If you see errors related to time, or your clock is off, do
  • w32tm /resync
  • If that didn't work, try the steps at Windows IT Pro.

Linux - Find what packages are required for an rpm (yum)

  • rpm -qR package.rpm > requires.log
  • OR
  • rpm -i --test package.rpm > requires.log
  • Then, if you are using yum, you can:
  • yum whatprovides
