Install Git 1.8 on RHEL 6

While PyCharm does work with the native version of Git that ships with RHEL 6.5, it does complain a lot. I also feared that something would go wrong eventually so I started looking around on updating.

There wasn't a newer version of Git in fast track so I had to go with somthing else. Luckly I found the IUS Community Project. 

The IUS Community Project is aimed at providing up to date and regularly maintained RPM packages for the latest upstream versions of PHP, Python, MySQL and other common software specifically for Redhat Enterprise Linux. IUS can be thought of as a better way to upgrade RHEL, when you need to.

The project is sponsored by Rackspace and is a spin off of their own internal project. A huge plus is that it is SafeRepo Aware. Meaning that when I installed the repo I couldn't just do a yum update and get the latest version of git (along with any other software and totally wreak my system). To install git 1.8 I had to yum install git18

Now when I yum search git, I see (along with others):

git.x86_64 : Fast Version Control System
git18.x86_64 : Fast Version Control System
So I can choose which version I want without upgrading all the great stock RHEL packages on my system.

Well enough of my talking, to the script!!

Latest version is at Github:

As Root:


yum install epel-release-6-5.noarch.rpm


yum install ius-release-1.0-11.ius.el6.noarch.rpm

yum install git18

Exchange 2013 | Enable all users' mailboxes and add all users to distribution gorup

We are currently in the process of setting up an all new domain and related services. We have some techs doing the creation of users but those needed mailboxes created in exchange. So instead of manually creating the mailboxes in the ECP I just ran this script from the domain administrator login on the exchange  CAS:
Get-User -RecipientTypeDetails User -Filter { UserPrincipalName -ne $Null } | Enable-Mailbox

I had already created an "All Users" distribution group so I needed to add these new users to the group:

Get-User -RecipientTypeDetails UserMailbox  -Filter { UserPrincipalName -ne $Null } | Add-DistributionGroupMember -Identity "All Users" 

I got some errors on the last command, however they were just warnings that some users were already members of the all users group, so no problem at all.

 Hope you find this useful,
