trying to configure a Centos 5.5 server (simple file server with DHCP and DNS relay). I configured and tested the config (by 'service dnsmasq configtest') of dnsmasq and I got the message 'dnsdomain:host unknown (translation of the real message : hte inconnu) and I didn't find where I could define this host ! The hostname of the server is well defined and I can see it from all Windows PC's on the LAN. dnsmasq starts (with hte same message as in configtest) but when querying DNS from PC's te.g. trying to surf the Internet), I don't get replies (3 DNS servers are also well defined and operational).
RHEL 5.4 i want to be able to do redistribution of inbound syslog messages to syslogd. as example, my syslog.conf has in it at the end:
*.* @192.168.5.5 *.* @192.168.5.6
my sysconfig/syslog file has "-r" as the only option for syslogd. any messages generated by the localhost will be sent to the two remote servers, but messages that come into this box (udp 514) only get logged locally and do not get sent out to the remote hosts.
you may ask why do i want to do this. because i have several syslog servers (for security purposes) and many of my net devices are configured to send syslog to all the syslog servers, hence each device is sending way too much duplicate udp-514. so i would like to minimize the udp-514 coming out of the devices, have all devices send to a central syslog server, and then central syslog server do distribution to the other syslog servers. others have also called this "syslog proxy". or, if not with syslogd, how to achieve this (preserving the original syslog message host info, etc)?
I've got Tyan S4989 with gigabit ethernet controller Intel Corporation 82571EB. Sometimes server starts drop packets and doesn't respond to any connections and all logs doesn't contain any errors. iptables and SELinux switched off on CentOS 5.3(2.6.18-128.1.6).
I am unable to find the syslogd files. Ubuntu 9.1 installed. Logging is taking place. I want to redirect logging to central location. Do I need to install syslogd in order to control this service or is it controled via a different name/service?
I've set this up as a primary dns server, Bind is the only thing running on it, no gui, etc. I followed the default settings so I have a named.conf, named.conf.options, and named.conf.local file.
I have a log file I labeled as named.log in this path /var/log/bind. I'm using logrotate to rotate out the file.
My problem is that after syslogd restarts in the morning. My named.log file don't start logging info until I restart Bind. The new named.log file gets created and the old files rotate out and compress. All of the other log files in /var/log, syslog, messages, mail, etc, rotate out and compress like they should, after syslogd restarts.
I know that I could restart Bind using Cron but I shouldn't have to.
Below are snips of the files I'm using.
I named this one 'bind' and it's in the directory /etc/logrotate.d
The title pretty much says it all. Once I get past GRUB, the font becomes HUGE and starts off screen. It appears to be center zoomed because I cannot see the login prompt nor anything I type. It's not really an emergency, I installed OpenSSH during the OS installation and can just turn it on and log in over SSH or start up Webmin. It just bugs me that I cannot figure this out.
There is no graphical environment installed, so it's not a video card issue. I tried adding vga=ask as a kernel flag and then tried several options, but to no avail.
i have been trying to complete the following project1) Configure a FTP server where we can upload and download files.........2) server must run at 9 pm & stop at 9 am automatically ............although the first task was easy ,i have no idea how to accomplish the 2nd task(not to mention I'm a new user)
I've been pulling my hair out on this one. I haven't had to reboot my server in many many moons, but when I did recently, everything fired back up just fine... except httpd!The strange thing is that if I log in after reboot and simply type:
I have a problem with compiling of mod_ruby-1.3.0 After a succesfull configure i get a error in the make, it say "make: *** [apachelib.o] error 1" . Here below you can find the results of de configuring and the make.I was following the roles in Howtoforge " The perfect server - Centos 5.3" everything goes perfect till mod_ruby-1.3.0
./configure.rb --with-apr-includes=/usr/include/apr-1 checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking whether we are using gcc... yes
I googled upto my capability but cant find answer so asking you In one of my apache 2.0.52 machines, we are using worker MPM model. Even if I use 1 start servers, the # of http processes it starts is 5. No matter what value I pass in StartServers, I dont see more than 5-6 http processes
Got a Zimbra server FOSS edition running on CentOS5.5. Everything was running fine until couple of days just found out that web administration interface just does not give the proper status. Web console says that none of the services are running which infact is not true. Only service that is not running is logger. This is the zmcontrol status output
Just the logger service is not running all the others are. But web admin interface shows all are stopped. Also it can be seen that zmlogswatchctl is not running. Starting it manually does not do any good. It does not start and it dies out by itself.I tried to google and found a couple of bugs related to logger and web interface but those were old and should have been done in this version 6.
I recently upgraded my Dell Vostro V13 from 9.04 to 10.04. All seemed to go well, but now the keyboard (and touchpad) aren't being recognized on bootup. I can get to single user mode OK --- keyboard is fine, but something is badly amiss as I can't use the mouse or keyboard when the X-server starts.
some times network disconnected automatically. if we restart rhe server it automatically starts to work. again 2 or 3 days, the same senario is happening. on this server 2 database is running, it makes lot of problem to us. what will be the problem? is any connection parameter is there? (ie i mean only 50 numbers of client connection is only allowed like.) or any problem in NIC card or NIC driver.
I randomly started up my laptop one day and the mouse and keyboard stopped responding once GDM's login screen came up. Everything works fine from the console, but even if I run startx from the login shell the mouse and keyboard do not work, even though everything else in GNOME runs perfectly.
I am using an HP dv6426us laptop running Ubuntu 9.04 (i686 architecture with the 2.6.28-15-generic kernel). Below is a copy of my xorg.conf file, just in case there might be something wrong with that. I will try and put more information on, but seeing as I have to use a different computer to post this thread, copying over log files and stuff is difficult for the moment (though I am going to try and copy them over to a flash drive).
I am using centos 5.5 x85_64 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5 The server is hanging at start up due to the follwoing error

I have just configured CentOS server my new office. This is the first time I am using CentOS.
Whenever I am trying to change the webroot of the httpd server, it usually say "directory doesn't exist". whereas which can't be the case as it is home directory of the user.
To achieve this, what Do I need to do?
The second issue, I am facing that whenever I am adding new directories to public_html folder, it is not accessible. as the error page 404 is shown. I have changed the permissions to 0705 and ownership is also transferred to other user. What else is required to make new directories accessible by the web?
I have been beating my head for the last few weeks on this problem, (although I have been taking the wrong approach, it seems).
I need a gateway to direct web traffic to three separate servers/domains. I have been trying to do this with both a dns server and , (seperatly), apache server to forward requests. The dns server was a no go, and <i can only get apache to redirect http and ftp.
After Googling this ALOT, I believe that what I need is a gateway server to redirect my traffic to the 3 different servers. I have been reading about using using nat and iptables for this and was wondering if anyone had any advice/suggestions on this. The other thought I had was to use something like pfSense to create the gateway, but I am still reading the documentation, and I am unsure if this approach will work.
i need to configure postfix on centos to relay email from the internet to the Exchange Server and i also need that emails sent from the exchange within the same domain be sent to postfix then resent to exchange because i have spamassassin and clamav installed on centos to filter all incoming and outgoing mails ...
I have tftp-server running on Centos 5. Clients which are on the same subnet as the server are able to get and put without problems. I have a client that is across the internet that is having trouble getting files from my tftp server. A tcpdump reveals that the client is requesting the same file over and over again. In /var/log/messages, I am see the following error repeated over and over until the client finally gives up.
localhost in.tftpd: tftpd: read: No route to host
I have a CentOS + Samba server and Windows XP client machines. Users, passwords and permissions are entered on the server machine.users and passwords ( same as on the server ) are entered in the XP client machine.When attempting to access a public file on the server using a XP client machine and the IP address of my server, I am asked a user name and password and none of the already entered seem to work. I cannot access the server file (prompted again and again to enter user name and password). What did i miss
I'm no expert on DHCP. My problem is that i have a CentOS 5.5 server on which i want to install a DHCP server. I have two NICs where eth0 has access to the internet and where eth1 should act as an DHCP server.
I have installed dhcpd and this is how my dhcpd.conf file looks like.
ifconfig looks like this
When i start dhcpd on eth1 i get no error messages but when i connect any devices to eth1 they don't get any IP. I cant find anything in any logs about devices trying to get an IP address. I dont have any firewall rules in iptables.
