systemd service file for Apache SOLR
View solr.service
# put this file in /etc/systemd/system/ as root
# below paths assume solr installed in /opt/solr, SOLR_PID_DIR is /data
# and that all configuration exists in /etc/default/ which is the case if previously installed as an init.d service
# change port in pid file if differs
# note that it is configured to auto restart solr if it fails (Restart=on-faliure) and that's the motivation indeed :)
# to switch from systemv (init.d) to systemd, do the following after creating this file:
# sudo systemctl daemon-reload
# sudo service solr stop # if already running
# sudo systemctl enable solr
# systemctl start solr

Setting up ISC dhclient on debian / ubuntu for prefix delegation

My ISP (Time Warner Cable) hands out IPv6 addresses with DHCPv6; it will delegate a /56 if asked. So long as I keep refreshing the lease, it won't renumber me. I have my cable modem set to bridge, and do all the firewalling, NATing, etc., on a Debian box. In what follows, eth0 is the internal interface.

The dhclient that ships with debian/ubuntu does not support asking for a prefix delegation, so I had to build one from sources.

Enabling SSH on Engenius EAP600

Enabling SSH on Engenius EAP600 (and maybe other models)

This tutorial will walk you through the steps needed to get root SSH access on an Engenius EAP600 dual-band WiFi access point. SSH doesn't come enabled out of the box on these things, so if you want to SSH into the device (which is running an old version of OpenWRT), keep reading.
