Working with PowerShell & Multiple Azure Contexts

When working with multiple Azure subscriptions, the PowerShell Az.* modules allow for easy context switching. This means that you can run commands agains multiple subscriptions, or you can run commands against subscriptions without changing your default context. An Azure Context object contains information about the Account that was used to sign into Azure, the active (for that context) Azure Subscription, and an auth token cache is not actually empty, it just can't read from here for security reasons, though you can read it with the Get-AzAccessToken command. Here's what is in an Azure Context object: PS> Get-AzContext | fl * Name : TK-PRD (yyyyyyyy-yyyy-yyyy-yyyy-yyyyyyyyyyyy) - Account : Environment : AzureCloud Subscription : yyyyyyyy-yyyy-yyyy-yyyy-yyyyyyyyyyyy Tenant : zzzzzzzz-zzzz-zzzz-zzzz-zzzzzzzzzzzz TokenCache : VersionProfile : ExtendedProperties : {} If y

Building DBD::mysql on Solaris 10 Sparc

Having problems building the Perl DBD::mysql modules on Solaris 10 Sparc 64-bit? The Perl 5.8.4 binary that ships with Solaris 10 is a 32-bit application.  You are probably running the 64-bit version of MySQL and trying to build DBD::mysql against that db version. What you actually need to do is download the 32-bit version of MySQL, for linking the Perl DBD::mysql libraries against.   I run the 64-bit MySQL database in /opt/mysql/mysql, so I unpacked the 32-bit MySQL as /opt/mysql/mysql32. Then, run a CPAN shell, look DBD::mysql, and build the module.
/usr/perl5/5.8.4/bin/perlgcc Makefile.PL --libs '-R/usr/sfw/lib \
-R/opt/mysql/mysql32/lib -L/usr/sfw/lib -L/opt/mysql/mysql32/lib \
-lmysqlclient -lz -lposix4 -lcrypt -lgen -lsocket -lnsl -lm' \
--cflags '-I/usr/sfw/include -I/usr/include -I/opt/mysql/mysql32/include'
gmake install UNINST=1
and you're done.
