General :: Why Doesn't TrueCrypt Support System Encryption On Non-Windows Machines

May 16, 2011

I would love to be able to use TrueCrypt consistently across all my machines, be they Windows or Linux. As it stands, I can do full-disk encryption with pre-boot authentication only on Windows.

I don't really understand why this is. Are there technical challenges specific to Linux/Mac that make full disk encryption harder? Does anyone know whether TrueCrypt will support this in the near future.

PS. yes, I'm aware that there are other options. My goal is to simplify my life here and use the one tool across all machines.

CentOS 5 :: Are Any Patches Applied To The Software In CentOS Repos?

Dec 20, 2009

Suppose I'm interested in some application. That application is included in CentOS default repo and can be installed via yum. The version number indicates that this is a rather old release. This fact in itself is okay with me. But according to the original developer's site this release contains a major security bug and should be patched immediately.

The question: is the file from CentOS repo a copy of the original release or are any patches applied?

General :: Deploy Windows Onto Server With No Physical Access To Machine

Jul 30, 2010

I need to deploy Windows Server 2008 R2 onto a server that is currently running Linux. Effectively, I want to restore a Windows disk image onto the Linux system hard disk.I don't have physical access to the machine, so I need to find a way to do everything remotely, using SSH (no KVM). And the Linux machine only has one hard disk - the one containing the OS. However, I might be able to create a partition in free space at the end of the hard disk to store the image (I might need some help with the Linux commands). Or perhaps the image file can be pulled via FTP.

I tried Acronis but was disappointed to find that it doesn't seem to allow me to overwrite the system partition (unlike the Windows version of Acronis, which is capable of doing this with a restart).

CentOS 5 :: Yum Only Install Patches And Updates For Version 5.2 And Not To Upgrade To 5.3?

May 29, 2009

IIm running several Webservers on CentOS 5.2. Due to the Hosting-Platform I use, it is recommended that there will not be CentOS 5.3-Updates installed. So I searched the net a lot now but didn't find a propper solution. Is there a way to tell yum only install patches and updates for version 5.2 and not to upgrade to 5.3?

CentOS 5 Server :: Building VMWare Virtual Machines From CentOS Mail Servers?

Oct 12, 2010

I have a few mail servers, a mail log server and a web server running on Centos 5. Now I have a task: to avoid accidental crashes on the production servers while installing updates, my boss asked me to do clones (these clones will all be VMware virtual machines) of the servers (EXCLUDING the actual e-mails and log contents) and then to run those clones on VMWare Server. This way, first I will install and test updates on the clones and - if they will be running without crashes - I will apply the updates on the real production servers themselves.

I have already installed VMWare Server 2.0 I have a few questions: How do I build the virtual machines to exclude the actual mail files and mail logs? Can I use VMware Converter for this purpose, or do I have to use another program? How do I actually do this cloning? Is there a tutorial on how to do this?

CentOS 5 :: Mounting Windows File System?

Jun 2, 2009

I have a dual boot system (CentOS and Windows XP Pro). The computer has 2 disks with the operating systems on sda. My data files are on the 2nd disk (sdb I think). I would like to be able to access the data files on sdb from CentOS. I tried issuing the Linux command:mount -oro -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /mnt/winbut CentOS tells me that ntfs is not a file system it recognizes. Even if I leave out the -t ntfs I get the same message. Any ideas on how I can get access to the Windows files while in the CentOS boot?. I got the idea for the above mount command from the book: Fedora 10 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Bible byCristopher Negus.

General :: Configure A System To Boot Windows XP / CentOS 4 And RHEL5

May 21, 2010

I am trying to configure a system to boot Windows XP, CentOS 4 and RHEL5. I have one hard drive that contains both Windows XP and CentOS 4, and a separate drive that contains RHEL5. Until recently, I only had one SATA cable, so I could only connect one drive at a time. Under this configuration, everything works fine. When the RHEL5 drive is connected, I can boot into it. When the Windows/CentOS drive is connected, I can dual-boot into either OS. (GRUB was configured on this drive automatically when I installed CentOS into a new partition.)

Opening the box and moving the SATA cable is a lot of trouble, so I finally got a second SATA cable and enabled both SATA0 and SATA1 in the BIOS. I currently have the Windows/Centos drive as the primary, and I can still boot into both Windows/Centos. Now, I want to add RHEL5 to menu, but I can't find the file GRUB is using to present its menu at startup.

I have configured GRUB before on other systems, but I just know the very basics, such as where the grub.conf file should be. So, I spent a whole day reading advice online and asking friends who might have experience with these issues. Here are the steps I have taken so far:

I confirmed there is no /boot/grub directory, and /etc/grub.conf is a broken soft-link to /boot/grub/grub.conf. I did a find for grub.conf, which found nothing. I did a find for menu.lst, which found one item -- an example GRUB config file in /usr/share/doc/grub-0.95. I noticed that when CentOS boots, I see the GRUB commands printed to the screen, the first of which is:

root (hd0,2)

So, I did a grep -R "(hd0" * at the / directory, which also found only one item -- the example menu.lst file in /usr/share/doc/grub-0.95. I discovered that I can go to the command line grub from the grub menu and do:

cat (hd0,2)/grub/grub.conf

The cat command returns a printout of the grub configuration the system is obviously using. I didn't create this file, but the titles are identical to what I see in the GRUB menu, the default boot is Windows, and the timeout is very short. This must be the file. It looks like:

title CentOS (2.6.9-89.ELsmp)


I've also tried making the RHEL5 drive the primary drive. In that case, I can modify the existing /boot/grub/grub.conf file and see my changes at the GRUB boot menu. However, I can't get Windows to boot in this configuration. I've done a lot of google searching on the topic and added map commands to make Windows think it is on the primary drive. But, I'm still unsuccessful on this front as well. I think I'm closer to solving the problem with Windows/CentOS as the primary. However, if you think I will have more success with RHEL5 as the primary drive, I can provide more details as to my current grub.conf on that drive in a later post.

Debian :: Join Machines To Windows Domain AD?

Aug 22, 2010

I have 15 or so debian lenny machines, and a xen server that I would like to join to the windows 2003 AD domain controller. The main goal is I would like the windows / linux user names and passwords to be the same on each system. Only 10 or so users need access to the machines but the passwords sometimes are different. How should I go about accomplishing this ?

I was told that openldap may be a solution. But from what I've read about it sounds like its just a mimic or window AD and doesnt sync with it, at least natively ?

Fedora Networking :: Cannot Mount One Of My Windows Machines

Apr 10, 2010

What could block access from Fedora to just one Windows XP system without blocking access to or from other Windows systems on the network? I have a working Windows network with six computers and one network-attached-storage. Two of the computers (MARTIN and NANCY) are Windows XP, the rest are older. I set up a Fedora laptop with Samba. The Fedora system can access the Internet (I'm using it to post this message). It can see all the Windows systems, and it can open all of them except MARTIN. The firewall on MARTIN is turned off.

I go to Places, Network, and I see nine icons: the Fedora system, seven Windows systems and one for Windows Network. If I double-click on the MARTIN icon I get a message window that says "Unable to mount location" and "Failed to retrieve share list from server". If I double-click on any of the other Windows icons, including NANCY, a new window opens showing the shares on that system. Similar results with smbclient. It shows the shares for all systems except MARTIN. For MARTIN it says "Connection to MARTIN failed (Error NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL)."

The other Windows computers on the network can open the shares on MARTIN with no problem. The network is partly wired and partly wireless. The wireless network is secured with WEP. The Fedora laptop is (as you might expect) wireless. The Fedora laptop is an emachines E520 and both Windows XP machines are custom-built tower systems. I don't think that information is relevant but I mention it anyway. What should I look for?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To Windows 7 Machines

Sep 17, 2010

I may be missing something very easy here, but I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit (I have also tried 10.04 32 bit) and I cannot connect to my windows machines. I can't connect by going to the network window, or by connect to server via ip. Basically, I can see the windows machines but then I double click it, and it asks for the credentials. I'm the admin of all of the machines, and I only have one login to my windows machine, which is my name First Last. I am entering this, and my password (which I'm sure is correct) and click "Connect". It thinks for maybe a half second, then presents me a blank credentials box, wanting me to start over.

I can connect to my Macbook without any troubles.

I'm using an Acer AspireRevo 1600, wired connection.

Ubuntu Networking :: Get An Error 619 On The Windows Machines?

May 19, 2011

I have Ubuntu Server 10.04 running as a samba server and a VPN server using PPTPD. I am trying to connect two users to the VPN, which I am running Windows Ultimate on one, and Windows Home Premium.

Connecting to the VPN server from any location, I get an error 619 on the windows machines, and I have googled for what feels like days about the error and can't find a working solution. I look in the /var/log/messages file and see:

Plugin /usr/lib/pptpd/pptpd-logwtmp.so loaded.
pppd 2.4.5 started by root, uid 0
Using interface ppp0
Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/1
Modem hang up
Connection terminated

Does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong?

OpenSUSE Network :: Can't Figure Out Why It Is Working With Machines And Not With Windows?

Mar 27, 2010

I used to have my print server with cups in openSUSE 11.1 and it used to work perfect. I was able to print from both linux machines and windows. But since I Installed openSUSE 11.2, I'm only able to print from linux machines. In windows XP I'am able to find the printer and install the drivers, and everything seems to work, but when I send the print command, it creates an error. I have three XP pcs that were running perfectly, and now neither one of them print, so I know is a problem with the server itself. I have all the samba and cups services activated, and the firewall is set correctly, but can't figure out why it is working with linux machines and not with windows.

Can I use HP MC Servicegaurd with RHEL/CentOS on 32 Bit Linux on Intel Machines? Is the rpm (or tar ball) of HP MC Servicegaurd freely available? I just wanted to use it for learning purpose.
