VMware: Full path in ESX 2.5/3.0 Service Console

This is an old post, but I redid the blog…
Not sure how many of you use PuTTY and the COS, but I figured I’d post this tidbit.

I got tired of looking at just
[root@host log]# for my prompt.
Showing only my current directory

I would rather have
[root@host /var/log]#
Which shows the full path

You can modify the /etc/bashrc file ( back it up first!!!) to change this.

Look for this line in the /etc/bashrc file:
[ “$PS1” = “\s-\v\$ ” ] && PS1=”[u@h W]\$ “

Change it to:
[ “$PS1” = “\s-\v\$ ” ] && PS1=”[u@h w]\$ “

Notice the uppercase “W” became a lowercase “w”. Save the file and log off/log on. Look at your prompt. Now, I have no questions as to which directory I’m in.

Here’s a link to the original post:

Citrix: Exporting Citrix XP FR2 Applications for import into Citrix PS 4.0

Well, here’s the script that I used to export apps from a Citrix XP FR2 farm for import into a Citrix PS 4.0 farm.

I started out with the FarmAppUtil from Citrix (for XP FR3 and above), and looked at the output XML. I then took Michael Callahan’s script, and modified it to export the XML to “match up” with the format of the newer XML.

So here were my steps:

1. Export with FarmAppExport.wsf
2. Import with FarmAppUtil, which is tested on XP FR3 and above.

Just a note: I had to manually create a MFCOMFolder.txt file with the folders in my old farm. Maybe my next version will have the ability to export this as well.
