TCP/IP Protocols

TCP/IP is a large collection of different communication protocols.

A Family of Protocols

TCP/IP is a large collection of different communication protocols based upon the two original protocols TCP and IP.

TCP - Transmission Control Protocol

TCP is used for transmission of data from an application to the network.
TCP is responsible for breaking data down into IP packets before they are sent, and for assembling the packets when they arrive.

IP - Internet Protocol

IP takes care of the communication with other computers.
IP is responsible for the sending and receiving data packets over the Internet.

HTTP - Hyper Text Transfer Protocol

HTTP takes care of the communication between a web server and a web browser.
HTTP is used for sending requests from a web client (a browser) to a web server, returning web content (web pages) from the server back to the client.


HTTPS - Secure HTTP

HTTPS takes care of secure communication between a web server and a web browser.
HTTPS typically handles credit card transactions and other sensitive data.


SSL - Secure Sockets Layer

The SSL protocol is used for encryption of data for secure data transmission.


SMTP - Simple Mail Transfer Protocol

SMTP is used for transmission of e-mails.


MIME - Multi-purpose Internet Mail Extensions

The MIME protocol lets SMTP transmit multimedia files including voice, audio, and binary data across TCP/IP networks.


IMAP - Internet Message Access Protocol

IMAP is used for storing and retrieving e-mails.


POP - Post Office Protocol

POP is used for downloading e-mails from an e-mail server to a personal computer.


FTP - File Transfer Protocol

FTP takes care of transmission of files between computers.


NTP - Network Time Protocol

NTP is used to synchronize the time (the clock) between computers.


DHCP - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol

DHCP is used for allocation of dynamic IP addresses to computers in a network.


SNMP - Simple Network Management Protocol

SNMP is used for administration of computer networks.


LDAP - Lightweight Directory Access Protocol

LDAP is used for collecting information about users and e-mail addresses from the internet.


ICMP - Internet Control Message Protocol

ICMP takes care of error-handling in the network.


ARP - Address Resolution Protocol

ARP is used by IP to find the hardware address of a computer network card based on the IP address.


RARP - Reverse Address Resolution Protocol

RARP is used by IP to find the IP address based on the hardware address of a computer network card.


BOOTP - Boot Protocol

BOOTP is used for booting (starting) computers from the network.


PPTP - Point to Point Tunneling Protocol

PPTP is used for setting up a connection (tunnel) between private networks.

ما هى ال FSMO Roles

  بأختصار ال FSMO Roles هى اختصار ل Flexible Single Operation Master و هى عباره عن 5 Roles فى ال Active Directory و هما بينقسموا لقسمين A - Forest Roles 1- Schema Master Role و هى ال Role اللى بتتحكم فى ال schema و بيكون فى Schema Master Role واحد فى ال Forest بيكون موجود على Domain Controller و بيتم التحكم فيها من خلال ال Active Directory Schema Snap in in MMC بس بعد ما يتعمل Schema Register بواسطه الامر التالى من ال Cmd regsvr32 schmmgmt.dll 2-Domin Naming Master و هى ال Role المسئوله عن تسميه ال Domains و بتتأكد ان مفيش 2 Domain ليهم نفس الاسم فى ال Forest و بيتم التحكم فيها من خلال ال Active Directory Domains & Trusts B- Domain Roles 1-PDC Emulator و هى ال Role اللى بتتحكم فى ال Password change فى ال domain و بتتحكم فى ال time synchronization و هى تعتبر المكان الافتراضى لل GPO's و هى تعتبر Domain Role مش زى الاتنين الاولانيين و بيتم التحكم فيها من خلال ال Active directory Users & Computers عن طريق عمل كليك يمين على اسم الدومين و نختار operations master فى تاب ال PDC Emu

Recreating a missing VMFS datastore partition in VMware vSphere 5.x and 6.x

    Symptoms A datastore has become inaccessible. A VMFS partition table is missing.   Purpose The partition table is required only during a rescan. This means that the datastore may become inaccessible on a host during a rescan if the VMFS partition was deleted after the last rescan. The partition table is physically located on the LUN, so all vSphere hosts that have access to this LUN can see the change has taken place. However, only the hosts that do a rescan will be affected.   This article provides information on: Determining whether this is the same problem Resolving the problem   Cause This issue occurs because the VMFS partition can be deleted by deleting the datastore from the vSphere Client. This is prevented by the software, if the datastore is in use. It can also happen if a physical server has access to the LUN on the SAN and does an install, for example.   Resolution To resolve this issue: Run the  partedUtil  command on the host with the issues and verify if your output

Unlock the VMware VM vmdk file

  Unlock the VMware VM vmdk file Kill -9 PID Sometimes a file or set of files in a VMFS become locked and any attempts to edit them or delete will give a device or resource busy error, even though the vm associated with the files is not running. If the vm is running then you would need to stop the vm to manipulate the files. If you know that the vm is stopped then you need to find the ESX server that has the files locked and then stop the process that is locking the file(s). 1. Logon to the ESX host where the VM was last known to be running. 2.  vmkfstools -D /vmfs/volumes/path/to/file  to dump information on the file into /var/log/vmkernel 3.  less /var/log/vmkernel  and scroll to the bottom, you will see output like below: a.
