    SCP in a script

    Yes that is an inherited risk by automating to that degree. That risk can be mitigated through a few methods. 1. Manually copy the key to the server either through ssh or scp without providing the password in the command. You will be prompted for the password and won't be available in clear...

    SCP in a script

    You don't actually supply the public key when using scp. You are going to want to supply the private key of the account being used on the destination when using "scp -i file". Or a more secure option might be to create a service like account with the only purpose and permissions to perform scp...

    Linux/|Windows disk partitions

    With Ubuntu I would use gparted to manage disk space for your Linux partitions. On windows I would use disk management. I would assign the extra space to windows before assigning the rest to Linux. Windows is pickier about disk allocation.

Two Linux version of VirtualBox doesn't like the format of the file name. I always attempt to stay away from spaces with any file name in Linux. To...

    I broke my computer

    You may have to start from scratch. Every article I have read involving dual booting Windows and Linux requires Windows first. I believe this is because Windows MBR doesn't install correctly when installed after Linux. Where as GRUB will recognize both the boot directory for Linux and the MBR...

    [solved]: To clone or to image?

    Imaging could also be referring to the writing or putting the data, the reverse of cloning, to a hard drive and can make the previous data on the drive unavailable. If the old computer's drive is not encrypted or the password for the drive is known, I would attach the drive to the Ubuntu...

    adding more space and moving partition

    I can help with that but it doesn't really fit this thread any more. From my understanding of your last post, you want to make your desktop a virtual host for Virtual Machines to use and manage your 2 laptops. First question is: What are you going to use for a hypervisor, ESXI/XenServer (type 1)...

    hendricks54, What are you wanting for partitions? What requirements or needs do you have for partitions? The only thing I use partitions for is to set data size limits on programs or process that can create large volumes of data when something goes wrong. I create the partition as a space that...
