I have installed Ubuntu Server x64 in a VM (VMWare workstation) but have limited knowledge. Does anyone have steps on installing and configuring NDMP (Network Data Management Protocol) on an Ubuntu server? I would like to set this VM up like a NAS box so I can do some NDMP backup testing.
I have a couple of servers which runs CentOS 5.5 and CentOS 5.4. We have decided to buy a UPS and we choose Eaton EX RT 11 plus eaton network management card minislot. I have read on the site of Eaton that they have two applications which could gracefully shutdown my servers - LanSafe and NetWatch. My experience with UPS and those applications is zero so I`m here for some advises? Do you prefer NetWatch over LanSafe?
As a strategy for learning linux I have decided to adopt using a lean windows based approach. I want to focus on command line machine system, network basics, and file management knowledge. In other words find out how desktop manager does it's business, so I know how to master my machine, but by and large once I have made my choices, leave it alone to do just that.
I figure I should know how applications are internally configured etc., but I also figure an apps GUI and config choices should take care of installations, and program usage as in M$ windows. Surely taking care of an applications dependencies are the responsibility of the developer, are they not?
I am working my way through "Rute User's Tutorial and Exposition (Version 1.0.0)" right now for an overall viewpoint. Can anyone suggest a specific source for a point by point explanation of the command basis of a generalised "desktop management" application (KDE,LXDE)? Better yet would be if it had some parallel comparison of the varied approaches taken by different distributions of linux.
A secondary question, is that allowed? Up to a certain point in Ms windows, a thorough knowledge of DOS 6.xx would theoreticaly enable one to more or less duplicate the actions of the windows overlay. Is there a basic distribution (or subset in all of them maybe?) of linux that would be consistent with that paradigm? What would be analogous to DOS batch files, or GM-Basic? Oh! that's 3.I am certainly appreciating the depth of this forum, and the breadth of knowledge among you forumite's. Reading it is time well spent.
I tried connect to internet through iPhone (bluetooth tether), so I followed one tutorial... It said I have to change "networkmanager" to "ifup" in yast>network settings, and make some other changes... I did it, but I couldn't connect via iphone... OK... I put back all changes, also changed ifpu to networkmanager.
After reboot, Knetowrkmanager gives me "network management disabled" on startup, instead of list of my networks.
Of course, I google for solution, but without any luck. And then, I don't know why, I killed Knetworkmanager, start it again, and.. it worked!
But now, I have to kill it, and start again always, when I reboot my laptop...(HP Compaq 6720s, BCM4312, KDE 4.3.4)
I have an Asus EeePc 1001PX and on resume I have "Network Management disabled", neither wired nor wireless interface can be configured, the NM icon is greyed out. running ifconfig shows eth0 and wlan0 have disappeared completely.
I found 2 options: 1. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/555571 2. Network management disabled after start on 11.2 - openSUSE Forums
but I don't have the /var/lib/NetworkManager folder at all
We are planing to Replace our Windoz Desktops to Linux.So, I am searching for an open source software apart from spacewalk that can install a software or a patch in all the systems that are under my network simultaneously.
I just changed my power settings so that my laptop would hibernate when I closed the lid... but now KDE Network Manager has decided that it will not allow itself to be enabled. I can get my ethernet connection working through YAST... but I *really* need the wireless to work as well... so can somebody *please* tell me why KNM is being so stupid, and how I can fix it? EDIT: I just realized that I should have put this in the Network subforum...
Many software available for patch managment like OCSinventry, cfengine,puppet,redhat satellite server for linux. I want to perform patch management for my Linux server (centOS, debian) My question is how to find out which patches available for Linux and which patches i need to apply. Is there any way to find out require patches?
I just switched to opensuse from fedora. So far, I like it a lot (KDE FTW). However, I am having a couple issues concerning hibernation and restarting.Whenever I merely close my computer but don't shut it off, I am forced to reboot. When I open the computer after closing it, everything stays black and nothing seems to work aside from a restart (no good, I know).When I restart, network management is disabled and thus I am prevented from accessing wireless. The only solution I have found is to hibernate, which for some reason fixes the problem. A restart however does nothing. So I guess I have two questions:1) Why can't I close my computer without turning it off?2) Is there a more permanent solution aside from merely hibernating after a crash that will fix network manager
On my netbook, I'm experimenting with removing any panels or window navigators completely, and using synapse for launching applications. But I've encountered a quite annoying problem, as the only stable solution I've found for connecting to wireless applications is the applet used in the gnome panel. I've tried the Wicd Network Manager, but it keeps disconnecting without reason.
Is there another program for connecting wireless, or maybe a way to use applets without a panel/window navigator?
Got a problem with the plasma network management widget. Let's say I connect to a wireless network at my office called "Network A". I then go home and try connecting to my wireless network, "Network B". Assume each has WEP encryption. When I click on my home network, the wallet-manager pops up first. I enter my password. I then see that instead of adding a new network, it has "Network A" selected for editing. This happens every single time. What is going on here? I don't want a bunch of posts naming WICD either. I want to use the plasma widget because I like it. So what's up with it overwriting other network connections when you try adding a new one?
I setup a server with vmware esxi 4. I installed opensuse 11.2 and I have successfully setup an internet gateway and I manually configured (static) my client IP. My question is, is there any software or commands that I could use to manage the bandwidth usage for each client? eg. only 5Mbps for 192.168.1.5, 10Mbps for 192.168.1.10, etc
Actually I need the wireless adapter to connect to the AP, so both of the ethernet card should be disabled. Infact, when I try to access to the AP I must disable the eth0 card by using (sudo ifconfig eth0 down), otherwise the route assigns the default gw (192.168.1.1) to the eth0 device and the network is useless.
I am replacing a home network - Windows Server 2003 and 5 PCs (XP Pro) with UBUNTU 10.4 LTS Server and client versions. I am keeping a couple of the PCs with dual boot until I can migrate everything over (Having some issues with iTunes, Family Tree Maker, Media serving, DVD decrypt and a couple of others, but that is for another post). It was great fun getting the server up and running using only shell commands. Took me ages just to get a folder shared! Migrating the data over from NTFS to ext3 was also fun given the limited space on the partitions.
I really only want to use the server for communal network type things ... central user account maintenance, shared folders for music, video etc and data backup. I don't need it to be performing server functions on the Internet e.g. web server etc although that may come later. How I set up central user management? All the PCs are currently setup with local user ids, and it is a bit of a pain to go round each PC every time I change something.
The server is not always up, so I need to be able to log into the local PC without it being active. I was using Active Directory on Server 2003, but I don't need anything that complex really ... just 3 or 4 users to manage. I have been looking at the setup tutorial at [URL] but am not sure how relevant a lot of it is. I have SSH setup so I can login remotely, NFS is working to share the folders, but that is about all I have done so far.
I have around 9 squid proxy servers and going to deploy Dansguardian on all of them. But I feel managing individual copy/server would be an tedious job hence please let me know if any one aware of centralized management solution for Squid+Dansguardian? Or if not let me know if you are aware of any such other Open Source product.
I wanted to implement a server for a small network, but am a bit in-experienced. The server that I want to use should be able to do load-balancing (two connections) and also act as firewall/proxy. And also it should be able to do some bandwidth management. The network that its going to serve has two parts. One part of the network should be served, say during day time,and the other during night time. The one that is going to be served at night-time should not have access to internet during day-time, but should have access to, say local mirror-server. I am a bit confused what software/hardware to use. I am planing to use EndianFirewall, but since I don't have experience, don't know if it can do all that I need (?).
Can any one suggest which versions and flavour of linux is best suitable for GATEWAY server or in which version and flavour of linux this gateway server is available, which is used for internet management with MAC locking.
Is there any computer management software like Cafe123 for Windows? Some friends of mine tried to reduce the cost for setting up computers by making one of the counter/server using Linux, instead of using Windows. And another reason that he want to avoid the counter server from being infected by malware such as those malware spread using usb drive.I forgot to mention that, the server intended to use will be powered with Ubuntu, and the client computers will using Windows XP instead.
I'm looking for a Postfix Management Web interface for user, domains, etc... The problem is I'm not using mysql for domains/users, so I can't use postfixadmin. I use virtual mailboxes as described here: [URL]
Basically all mappings are saved inside an /etc/postfix/vmaps file. The users/passwords files are in /home/vmail/passwd and /home/vmail/shadow. Users are in /home/vmail/$domain/$user
I searched for a web management tool that supports my config for weeks now, and can't seem to find any...
Our mailing systems was working in web mail and we had a tool wherein if we apply leave mails where sent to web mail. Now we have moved to exchange server and we want the mails to be sent to exchange server. The Leave Management systems is developed in PHP with Mysql the platform used is linux.
Just a quick question, is there a system user management app that could be accessed via a website for red hat (or really any distro)? Something kinda like phpMyAdmin, but can do useradd, userdel, groupadd, etc. For remote admins who don't know how to use ssh or the command line.
