If you search online, the most common method for extracting a list of subscribers of a Mailman list requires command-line access to the Mailman server. There's a much more user-friendly way to do it via the web interface.
The easiest way is to pull up the roster, which you can do by taking the web address for the admin interface, and substituting the word "roster" for the word "admin". So for example:
Today I used the Windows Notepad to save a text file onto my Debian server, thinking that I'd be able to view it easily using vi. But when I tried to do so, every line ended with an "^M". Those "^M"s are newline characters. Windows and Linux use different newline characters, so in order to have a Windows text document display properly in Linux, some conversion is needed.
I often have trouble when creating my own scripts to be run by
cron on Linux servers. On most of the servers that I administer, I use a homegrown backup script (based on these excellent instructions) that I place in /etc/cron.daily.
Back at the ALP office and therefore back to work on netbooting. After making sure that TFTP was up and running, I moved on to downloading the netbootable OS that I'll be using on my network.
* downloaded sysprep - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/838080
* found these instructions: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb457067.aspx?SA_CE=VIR-MAP-W...
* extracted setupmgr, sysprep and setupcl from the cab file that i downloaded
* used setupmgr to create sysprep.inf file - automates some of the setup like registration number, computer name, owner and company name, time zone, network config, etc
* ran sysprep GUI tool, chose "Use Mini-Setup" so that sysprep.inf will be used
* had to choose factory or reseal, so chose reseal
* sysprep worked, system shut down
