When SSO fails for a few on a windows RDS-Farm

On my workplace we have a small RDS-farm with a few RemoteApps and the nice thing about a strong windows environment is that is you can make use of Single sign-on (SSO), but for some reason this didn’t work for a handful of people. They always received a pop-up where they needed to enter their windows credential before getting access to the app. Not a big issue but finding the root cause took a while and I wasn’t able to find a solution on the internet. Fortunately after finding the root cause, the solution was really easy.

And then… my raspberry π crashed (x_x)

The stability of my Raspberry Pi that I use for the project Temperature Monitor is not what is should be. Sometimes it simply stops and I need to reboot the RPi to fix it, but somewhere in November a simple reboot did not work. I was able to open Grafana but it didn’t showed any new data. So I opened a ssh session only to find out that Python no longer functioned!

Pyhton.status = x_x

The same counted for some other critical functions like apt and or journalctl, but… Grafana and InflixDB still worked. The data was intact and fortunately I still had a second RPi-Zero that I had used to document the
Temperature Monitor Project. Today I found the time to move all the data from RPi to RPi.

Temperature monitor using DHT22 + Grafana + InfluxDB (and a PI) – Part 3

In Part 1 and 2 we made it possible to read out the DHT22 sensor and save the data in an InfluxDB database. But this is not so useful if you can’t visualise the data. In this part we will install Grafana on the RPi and visualise the data in the browser.

Temperature monitor using DHT22 + Grafana + InfluxDB (and a PI) – Part 2

In this part we will first install InfluxDB and use a simple cronjob to save the data in InfluxDB.
