ZF Becomes a Provider of Soft

“In the future, software will have one of the largest impacts on automotive system development and will be one of the key differentiating factors when it comes to realizing higher levels of automated driving functions. We want to help drive this trend forward. The collaboration with Microsoft will enable us to accelerate software integration and delivery significantly. This is important for our customers who appreciate agile collaboration and need short delivery cadences for software updates. Moreover, software will need to be developed when hardware is not yet available,” explained Dr Dirk Walliser, responsible for corporate research and development at ZF. ZF will then combine its enormous know-how as a system developer for the automotive industry with the added advantage of significantly higher speeds for software development.

“Digital capabilities will be key for automotive companies to grow and differentiate from their competition. DevOps empowers development and operations teams to optimize cross-team collaboration across automation, testing, monitoring and continuous delivery using agile methods. Microsoft is providing DevOps capabilities and sharing our experiences with ZF to help them become a software-driven mobility services provider”, said Sanjay Ravi, General Manager, Automotive Industry at Microsoft.

“cubiX”: Chassis of the Future from Code

At CES 2020, ZF will showcase its vision of software development with “cubiX”: It is a software component that gathers sensor information from the entire vehicle and prepares it for an optimized control of active systems in the chassis, steering, brakes and propulsion. Following a vendor-agnostic approach, “cubiX” will support components from ZF as well as third-party components. “cubiX creates networked chassis functions thanks to software: By connecting multiple vehicle systems such as electric power steering, active rear axle steering, the sMOTION active damping system, driveline control and integrated brake control, ‘cubiX’ can optimize the behavior of the car from one central source. This enables a new level of vehicle control and thus can increase safety – for example in unfavorable road conditions or in emergency situations,” said Dr Dirk Walliser. ZF plans to start projects with first customers in 2020 and will offer “cubiX” from 2023 either as part of an overall system or as an individual software component.

ZF at CES 2020

In addition, ZF will present its comprehensive systems for automated and autonomous driving at CES. They comprise sensors, computing power, software and actuators.

For passenger cars, Level 2+ systems pave the way for a safer and more comfortable means of private transportation. New mobility solutions like robo-taxis are designed to safely operate with ZF’s Level 4/5 systems. Additionally, ZF’s innovative integrated safety systems will be on display, like the Safe Human Interaction Cockpit. Innovative software utilizing artificial intelligence to provide new features and further-developed mobility offerings will also be highlighted.

CyberX launches partner program in IoT security market

CyberX, a Boston-based company that focuses on IoT and industrial control system cybersecurity, has unveiled a channel partner program.

The company’s Xcelerate program includes technical support, online training, deal registration, not-for-resale software, marketing development funds and a partner portal. The program’s scope encompasses managed service providers (MSPs), systems integrators, consulting firms, distributors, value-added resellers and technology alliance partners.

Service provider partners include Dimension Data, DXC Technology, NTT Security, Tata Consultancy Services and Wipro. Technology partners include IBM, ServiceNow and Splunk. CyberX also partners with industrial automation vendors such as Schneider Electric and Siemens.

CyberX provides a network security and monitoring system that covers IT and operational technology (OT) devices. The company has customers in the energy utilities, chemical and pharmaceutical markets. Vendors such as Cisco have advised channel partners to sell IoT services to OT and line-of-business executives, who direct much of the buying in that market.

The global IoT security market is forecast to grow from $18.82 billion in 2019 to $51.42 billion by 2024, according to BIS Research Inc., a market research company based in Fremont, Calif. The market will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 22.26% during that period, the company said.

The worldwide industrial control systems security market, meanwhile, is projected to grow at a 6.5% compound annual growth rate through 2023, when the market is expected to reach $18.05 billion, according to MarketsandMarkets.

Berkshire bid boosts Tech Data deal to $6B

Berkshire Hathaway Inc. launched a competitive bid to acquire Tech Data Corp., compelling suitor Apollo Global Management to sweeten the deal.

Berkshire’s offer surfaced in a Tech Data filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. When Apollo’s $130/share, $5.4 billion agreement to acquire Tech Data was revealed in November, the deal included a “go shop” provision that allowed the Clearwater, Fla., distributor to entertain alternative proposals until December 9. Hathaway presented a $140/share offer during that period. Apollo responded with a $145/share offer, which has cleared the path for the acquisition to proceed. Apollo’s new offer will boost the acquisition’s value to $6 billion.

Vendors launch cybersecurity integrations

Cybersecurity vendors this week revealed new integrations between their technology and MSP management tools. 

Bitdefender integrated its GravityZone MSP security suite with Datto’s remote monitoring and management (RMM) software. Bitdefender said the integration enables Datto RMM users to automate deployments of Bitdefender antivirus, antimalware and advanced endpoint layers via an OS-agnostic kit.

Meanwhile, Netsurion linked up its EventTracker security operations center service with IT Glue’s documentation platform. The combination lets Netsurion MSPs access reports designed to demonstrate security and compliance posture to clients, Netsurion said.

Barracuda Networks integrated two of its own products: Barracuda Content Shield and the Managed Workplace RMM platform. Barracuda’s RMM users can now tap Content Shield’s cloud-based web filtering and malware protection.

How to repair Windows Server using Windows SFC and DISM

Over time, system files in a Windows Server installation might require a fix. You can often repair the operating…

system without taking the server down by using Windows SFC or the more robust and powerful Deployment Image Servicing and Management commands.

Windows System File Checker (SFC) and Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) are administrative utilities that can alter system files, so they must be run in an administrator command prompt window.

Start with Windows SFC

The Windows SFC utility scans and verifies version information, file signatures and checksums for all protected system files on Windows desktop and server systems. If the command discovers missing protected files or alterations to existing ones, Windows SFC will attempt to replace the altered files with a pristine version from the %systemroot%system32dllcache folder.

The system logs all activities of the Windows SFC command to the %Windir%CBSCBS.log file. If the tool reports any nonrepairable errors, then you’ll want to investigate further. Search for the word corrupt to find most problems.

Windows SFC command syntax

Open a command prompt with administrator rights and run the following command to start the file checking process:

C:WindowsSystem32>sfc /scannow

The /scannow parameter instructs the command to run immediately. It can take some time to complete — up to 15 minutes on servers with large data drives is not unusual — and usually consumes 60%-80% of a single CPU for the duration of its execution. On servers with more than four cores, it will have a slight impact on performance.

Windows SFC scannow command
The Windows SFC /scannow command examines protected system files for errors.

There are times Windows SFC cannot replace altered files. This does not always indicate trouble. For example, recent Windows builds have included graphics driver data that was reported as corrupt, but the problem is with Windows file data, not the files themselves, so no repairs are needed.

If Windows SFC can’t fix it, try DISM

The DISM command is more powerful and capable than Windows SFC. It also checks a different file repository — the %windir%WinSXS folder, aka the “component store” — and is able to obtain replacement files from a variety of potential sources. Better yet, the command offers a quick way to check an image before attempting to diagnose or repair problems with that image.

Run DISM with the following parameters:

C:WindowsSystem32>dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth

Even on a server with a huge system volume, this command usually completes in less than 30 seconds and does not tax system resources. Unless it finds some kind of issue, the command reports back “No component store corruption detected.” If the command finds a problem, this version of DISM reports only that corruption was detected, but no supporting details.

Corruption detected? Try ScanHealth next

If DISM finds a problem, then run the following command:

C:WindowsSystem32>dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth

This more elaborate version of the DISM image check will report on component store corruption and indicate if repairs can be made.

If corruption is found and it can be repaired, it’s time to fire up the /RestoreHealth directive, which can also work from the /online image, or from a different targeted /source.

Run the following commands using the /RestoreHealth parameter to replace corrupt component store entries:

C:WindowsSystem32>dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

C:WindowsSystem32>dism /source: /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

You can drive file replacement from the running online image easily with the same syntax as the preceding commands. But it often happens that local copies aren’t available or are no more correct than the contents of the local component store itself. In that case, use the /source directive to point to a Windows image file — a .wim file or an .esd file — or a known, good, working WinSXS folder from an identically configured machine — or a known good backup of the same machine to try alternative replacements.

By default, the DISM command will also try downloading components from the Microsoft download pages; this can be turned off with the /LimitAccess parameter. For details on the /source directive syntax, the TechNet article “Repair a Windows Image” is invaluable.

DISM is a very capable tool well beyond this basic image repair maneuver. I’ve compared it to a Swiss army knife for maintaining Windows images. Windows system admins will find DISM to be complex and sometimes challenging but well worth exploring.
