CentOS 5 Networking :: Server Hangs For A Seconds?

May 20, 2010

I have Centos 5 Installation with following Linux ipmpls.mobilink.net.pk 2.6.18-8.el5xen #1 SMP Fri Jan 26 14:42:21 EST 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux. I have Nagios running on it for monitoring switches. It also runs postfix to give email alerts in case of a switch is unreachable. The problem is that the server hangs for a minute and returns to normal operation. During this period if a switch is polled it cannot be reached and hence Nagios shows the Flapping state on the switches. I need to understand as to why the server hangs

Server :: Running Cobbler On CentOS Machine Hangs?

Nov 16, 2010

Using the EPEL Repository, I went in and installed Cobbler to my DHCP/Gateway box.Everything went smoothly on the installation front. I went ahead and modified the cobbler settings file (/etc/cobbler/settings) to point to my server IP (same box), and then got tftp running properly. Now here's the problem.Normally, you need to run `cobbler check` to find issues and correct them. I run that, and all I get is blank. Nothing. It just hangs at the prompt until I kill it using CTRL+C.When I CTRL+C from the hanging, it states "cobblerd does not appear to be running/accessible"...

[root@PalaceRedirect ~]# service cobblerd status
cobblerd (pid 6991) is running...

CentOS 5 :: 5.3 Hangs While Remotely Copying Data Onto Server?

Jan 25, 2010

Problem : centos 5.3 hangs while remotely copying data onto this server.

I have A centos 5.3 x86 Version installed on Xeon Quad core , running on 8 GB DDR2 RAM, RAID 1 confgured on SATA drives. this was old installation copy and It has many more things running on it.Therfore, I can't just reinstall it.

I have setup SAMBA PDC + ldap on it. I encounter that system hangs when I copy data into this server from LAN computers.

My troubleshooting steps :

1. I have checked for network issue , My network works fine when I transfer data between other LAN compuers.

2. Even I have tried confguring seprate LAN....

3. I thought their might be some problem with my SAMBA configuration, therefore I did data transfer from sftp .

CentOS 5 :: 5.2 Installation Hangs On Server With Large Number Of Drives?

Apr 6, 2009

I am attempting to upgrade a system from 4.7 to 5.2 using a (now) DVD drive attached to the onboard IDE. Originally I had tried using a remote NFS image and a USB stick but I thought maybe there was a problem with the image. I can get up to the point of the installation of selecting the keyboard for the system and then it freezes and never goes any further. It doesn't appear to be a kernel panic since I can still switch between consoles.

I've got an MSI K9NGM2-FID with 14 drives in it. It serves as a file server for our backup server. It's got a secondary 4 port Silicon Image SII 3114 SATA card using the sata_sil module, and an old IDE Promise FastTrak TX2000. Technically I could have 16 drives but the 750W PS is walking the fine line on tripping it's self-breaker with the 14 drives and 7 fans. I would like to NOT have to disconnect all of this to do the upgrade.

I thought maybe that running the install using the "noprobe" option would help so it didn't detect and load the modules for the Silicon Image or the Promise cards and detect all of the drives but it still gets stuck on the step after selecting the keyboard. The installation info console and the dmesg console don't really provide any useful information. The installation console says:

INFO : moving (1) to step welcome
INFO : moving (1) to step language
INFO : moving (1) to step keyboard
INFO : moving (1) to step findrootparts

And the last lines of the dmesg console says:

<6>device-mapper: multipath: version 1.0.5 loaded
<6>device-mapper: multipath round-robin: version 1.0.0 loaded
<6>device-mapper: multipath emc: version 0.0.3 loaded

Is there a hidden "debug" option that will turn on a lot of extra logging?

CentOS 5 :: Account Password Changes Unexpectedly Once Every Few Days

May 5, 2009

I'm running 5.2, mostly updated. I've got a user account that is really only used by some clients (Polycom phones) to log into vsftpd. Once every few days or so, the password on the account changes to something other than what I've specified, and I can't figure out why. The other user accounts on the system don't seem to be affected, though none of the other accounts are used by/for vsftpd.

chage shows that the account password should never expire, so I don't think that's what's happening. I'm wondering if VSFTPD is just not playing nicely with PAM. Is there a way to explicitly prevent vsftp from changing a user password? I can't seem to find anything like this.I'm not sure if this makes any difference, but the system is clustered using heartbeat/drbd. The users are unique to each of the nodes in the cluster, though, so I don't think this should really have any effect.

Server :: Apache Stops Responding To HTTP Requests Every Few Days?

Dec 28, 2010

I've had a VPS running Ubuntu 9.10 x64 server, hosting 3 websites of mine for a few months now. This problem has been happening for a while. Every once in a while, probably every 2 or 3 days, I'll wake up in the morning, and apache won't be responding, no web pages will load. /etc/init.d/apache2 status, reports that apache is functioning properly. Every time I simply have to restart the daemon and things run fine for another few days.

I thought maybe it was a memory issue, so I lowered the MaxClients in the prefork module from 50 to 30 a few days ago, but the same thing is still happening. My VPS has 512MB of ram, burstable to 1GB, and according to Virtuozzo, there was only one night of high traffic where I even came close to that soft limit. I've checked my syslog, and there's absolutely nothing in there about apache. I've checked apache's error.log as well, and there's nothing in there that would indicate a problem either.

Server :: Script To Delete Files Older Than X Days Fstab Has Noatime Enabled?

Jul 26, 2011

I have set up a simple find and delete script for files older than X days. The problem is that some of the files that are send in this share are transfered from an archive server and creation/modified date remains the same when copied and the age of them could be a year ago or older and they get deleted over night by the script.For performance reasons the raid is mounted with noatime in fstab.Do you see any solution to this problem except enabling atime?I'm thinking at some more advanced script that writes the list of added files once a day and marks them for deletion after some time.

CentOS 5 :: Centos Installation In Vmware Hangs At Selinux-policy-targeted?

Jun 14, 2010

i am trying to install centos 5.5 x86_64 as a guest OS in vmware server 2.0.2 using netinstall iso. Installation runs fine until the point, when it tries to install selinux-policy-targeted-2.4.6-279.el5.noarch, the whole virtual pc hangs at this.any ideas? i tried to google few things about this, but i have found nothing. this has happened 3 times in row, whole virtual pc always hangs at the same package. i dont have any other problems with vmware, gentoo runs and installs fine in it.i would prefer to do installation using netinstall.iso, it would take a lot of time to download all cds or whole dvd and all i require is a very basic set of packages.

CentOS 5 :: CentOS 5.4 Hangs Just Before Desktop Loads?

Apr 1, 2010

My Dell poweredge server running CentOS 5.4 and booting kernel-2.6.18-164.15.1.el5. All boot processes seem okay and the graphical screens for CentOS operate, but just before the desktop loads the screen goes blank and the arrow/cursor is being circled by small spheres. This remains indefinitely. While the arrow is being circled, here are the results of 'getinfo.sh device'

CentOS 5 :: Udev Hangs After Upgrade To CentOS 5.4?

May 7, 2010

I have encountered the same problem as indicated in this post: "udev hang after upgrade from 5.3 to 5.4"[URL]... I'm testing the upgrade path to centos 5.4 on several virtual machines prior to upgrading our production systems. I have upgraded centos 5.2 --> centos 5.4 and centos 5.3 to centos 5.4. In both cases udev hangs after the upgrade. The following message is displayed on the console: "Starting udev: Wait timeout. Will continue in the background [FAILED]"

I found another related post: "udev hangs on boot for a long time, suspect pam_console_apply"[URL]..So, I booted by VMs using the "udevdebug" option to grub and received the same error message - "udevd-event [###]: run_program: Waiting ## seconds for output of '/sbin/pam_console_apply /dev/..."

In my /etc/ldap.conf file "bind_policy hard" is commented out. I added a line "bind_policy soft" as described in the post and my VMs booted fine. NOTE: This problem is not encountered with a fresh install of CentOS 5.4 and the "bind_policy hard" option in the /etc/ldap.conf is commented out as in the upgraded systems. What is really causing this problem and how do I get it addressed? I have a couple hundred systems to update from various releases of CentOS 5 to the latest current version 5.4. It would be nice to get this bug squashed..

CentOS 5 :: Installation Hangs / What To Do?

Jan 11, 2010

I need to set a new centos on an "old" box : PIV 1.8 1.5Gb

The Centos will run on a 40 Gb PATA Hard Drive set as main drive, The Box runs a another SATA Drive with 2 different windows installations.

The installer first hanged on the loading ata_piix driver screen so I restarted with the irqpoll option to complete the wizard.
But I'm now stopped on the last X screen : starting installation process please wait.

I have changed the hard drive, the DVD drive, the Centos DVD, tried with a 5.3 and 5.4 with no success.

CentOS 5 :: 5.3 Graphic Installation Hangs?

Apr 16, 2009

I'm attempting to install CentOS 5.3 on my IBM IntelliStation Z Pro 6221/37G, powered by some extra equipments as nVidia NV44 GeForce 6200 video card, MV88SX6041 SATA II Controller, 2x1GB DRAM.

The problem: CentOS 5.3 DVD i386 didn't install, the screen becomes unreadable because of vertical bars just after anaconda start running. Choosing at boot time different "linux resolutions" did not help, as well as the "text mode" still useless because Logical Volumes need to be created/handled and the graphical interface is mandatory.

Same result booting CentOS 5.2 Live CD. This sounds really strange to me. I checked iso images against their md5sum and are ok. Centos 5.3 x86_64 does not boot yet :"Your CPU does not support long mode", evem they are 2 x Xeon 2.8GHz / 512KB

CentOS 5 :: Yum Update With Awstats Hangs?

I have a strange issue. The only time I have trouble with yum is when awstats is included in an update. When it is, it always hangs on it when it gets to it. Yum will not complete. I have to cancel out... kill the yum pid and do it again. Tonight I did a yum-complete-transaction to do some unfinished actions - one included the removal of an old awstats - it hung on that.

CentOS 5 :: Hal Daemon Hangs On Boot?

Oct 27, 2010

I installed Centos 5.5 yesterday and discovered that the hal daemon was failing to start on boot.

The messages showed that the hal daemon was hanging because nss_ldap could not connect to the ldap server. It eventually failed and the system came up multiuser without it.

When I started looking into the problem I discovered that hald was being started quite early in the boot process. It's sequence number was 26 (if I remember correctly). This was even before nscd.

If I chkconfiged it off and booted, I could start it successfully once the system was up.

I changed the sequence number to 98 and bring it up relatively close to the end of the boot process.

This works and it starts normally.

Is starting it as early as 26 in the boot process done for a reason? It seems to me that it should definitely not be started before nscd. Does it matter that I moved it to the end of the boot process?
