Debian :: ISCSI Initiator Not Part Of Startup Script

May 23, 2015

I am still extremely green, but I have been able to add my Debian Wheezy server to my Windows domain and I am able to connect to my Windows file server iSCSI target, but it does not re-connect at system startup. The nodes are set to startup automatically and are in my fstab by UUID. However, checkin dmesg as well as the syslog shows that iSCSI doesn't attempt to initiate a connection at boot.

Ubuntu :: Can't Get ISCSI Initiator Start After A Reboot

Oct 19, 2010

I am currently wanting to connect to an NAS unit that I have. I have installed open-iSCSI and have made the following changes to the iscsi_conf file:


# To set a CHAP username and password for initiator
# authentication by the target(s), uncomment the following lines:
node.session.auth.username = "user"
node.session.auth.password = "12 digit pass"


My goal is to get the iSCSI initiator to connect after a reboot. Mounting after connecting I am sure this will be another challenge.

Ubuntu Servers :: Open-ISCSI Initiator On 10.04 Possible?

Feb 15, 2011

I have used open-iscsi for a couple of years on fedora and oracle linux, but since I use ubuntu for my desktop, web servers and mysql servers I thought I would be nice to do so on our new MySQL-server which should be connected to our Qlogic SAN. The installation went well after figuring out how to put two network cards on the same network, which seems to be the Qlogic way to do multipath. But I cannot make open-iscsi to log on automatically after reboot. Is there something different with open-iscsi on ubuntu?

Everything works if I logon and do:
iscsiadm -m node -l
multipath -v2

And then mount the volumes but if I try to put them in my fstab like:
/dev/MySQLdata/data/var/lib/mysql/ext4_netdev1 2
/dev/MySQLbackup/backup/var/mysqlbackupext4_netdev1 2

Debian Configuration :: ISCSI Connection - Attach To The ISCSI LUN

Jun 24, 2010

I have never done this before but stood up a new Debian (testing) x64 system. It only has 146GB available for RAID1 so I created a 500GB iSCSI LUN on my NAS device on the network and am really confused how I can attach my Debian to the iSCSI LUN I created. Right now the OS is installed all locally on the machine but I would like the iSCSI LUN to be the /home directory for mail storage. Is this possible or do I need to mount the LUN to a newly created folder / mount point that is locally attached?

Debian Multimedia :: Xorg Only Uses Small Part Of Screen?

Jun 9, 2011

After a install on a old Toshiba today everything looked fine. But when i tried to start Xorg it start but doesn't use my whole screen. It is not a resolution problem it just doesn't use the whole screen. Hopefully this explanation is understandable. On lenny i had the same issue but once i changed the console resolution size in grub everything was fine. Sadly this is not the case with squeeze. I already tried "X -configure" and had a look at the generated xorg.conf (posted below)


After that is tried to run the generated xorg.conf but then it just frooze.

Debian Installation :: MacbookPro - Unable To Sync GPT And MBR Part Tables

Apr 22, 2011

I'm trying to install Debian 6.0.1a on a MacBookPro5,5 (intel core 2 duo - EFI firmware). I have rEFIt 0.14 and a live cd of Debian (on a usb stick). I'm installing Debian on a usb stick. The installation process goes along smoothly, but then, it's impossible to boot up the freshly installed system (I get a black screen with a blinking cursor). I read that this is a common problem but all the solutions I have found have not worked for me.

The underlying idea is that since Macs have EFI firmware instead of a BIOS, the partition tables of devices are different (GPT for EFI versus MBR for BIOS), and grub is incompatible with GPT (I know there is an EFI version of grub but it is said to not work well). So the devices must have both a GPT partition table and a MBR one. These have to be "synced".
The tools available for this are:

- rEFIt can sync the partitions, but I haven't managed to have it sync them on any other device than the main hardrive. If I sync the main hardrive, then even the live cd (which is on a usb stick) won't boot (black screen with "GRUB _").
- Debian has a tool called gptsync, which returns a message saying "no data partition in gpt table, nothing to sync".
- Mac OS X has a tool called gptsync which returns a message saying "unknown partition type detected - I'm not touching this disc".

The reason there is no data partition is that gptsync sees my main partition as "EFI system". If I could change that, maybe I could sync the partition tables. Can that be done? Also, something I don't understand is: the live cd boots fine without grub. So why do I need grub? Couldn't the system boot up without it like the live cd does?

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome Top And Bottom Bars Go Only Part Way HOWTO FIX?

Feb 24, 2010

I just recently installed Lenny 5.04 on my computer and when it comes to the desktop the top and bottom bars seem to be set for a lower resolution. They only go about a third of the way across the screen and if set to be at the bottom the bottom bar is only a third of the way down the screen. The logon window fits this format but most other things go full screen (games don't though).

What is it I need to change and as an aside how do I change the screen resolution if I want everything bigger (so I can read it with my old eyes)

Debian Configuration :: Manual / Tmp Part Hangs Unattended-upgrades At Shutdown

Dec 3, 2015

Creating a separate /tmp partition manually during install prevents a clean shutdown.

Setup: Debian 8 minimal server configuration (SSH only) using net install as virtual machine on Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V (Gen 2).
1024 MB RAM, 20 GB VHDX, and 1 Processor, EFI boot
Packages installed: openssh-server, sudo, unattended-upgrades, bsd-mailx postfix
Application: IPv6 gateway using 6in4 tunnel

Symptoms: When shutting down the operating system (poweroff or reboot), the message

A start job is running for Unattended-Upgrades ( xx seconds / no limit ).is displayed on the console and will persist for several minutes before eventually timing out and shutting down.I've tried several different configurations. Any configuration that creates /tmp automatically (whole disk with single partition, or disk with separate /home, /var, and /tmp partitions) works fine and shuts down promptly. When I partition the disk manually (512 MB EFI Boot, 17 GB /, 3 GB /var, 512 MB /tmp, and 512+ swap) the problem occurs. I've narrowed it down to just the /tmp partition by testing and comparing various configurations (including/excluding partitions, placing partitions on a separate disk, changing the partition sizes, matching against automatic configurations, etc.).

I have also compared the /etc/fstab and /etc/default/tmpfs configuration file between working and non-working systems and cannot see any meaningful difference.

Debian Multimedia :: (xfce) Can't Copy Part Of A Webpage Using Chrome Or Firefox

Oct 18, 2015

I'm using:

Kernel 3.13.0-65-generic (i686)
Intel 945G video card
Xubuntu 14.04.3 with XFCE 4.10
Firefox 41.0.1
Google Chrome 45.0.2454.101
Dell generic usb mouse

I cannot copy a portion of an entire webpage using Google Chrome or Firefox when copying downwards.

Upwards works.

I've have this issue on the same machine with the following systems:

Debian 8 Jessie XFCe with XFCE 4.10 using Firefox or Google Chrome
Xubuntu 14.04 with XFCE 4.10 and 4.12 using Firefox or Google Chrome
Xubuntu 12.04 live cd using Firefox

This doesn't happen on the same machine with the following systems:

Debian 8 Jessie KDE using Firefox or Google Chrome
Kubuntu 15.04 live DVD using Firefox
LibreOffice Writer
LibreOffice Calc


Ex. Go to and paste this in the search area:

can highlight by going upwards but not downwards xfce My mouse can highlight the first line starting with the word "ssh" and the last line ending with the word "everything ..."

My mouse cursor cannot go past the last line "expressions can match many items, but evidently not everything ..."

If I scroll upward, I can copy the entire webpage.

KDE 4.x I don't have this issue.

Using Win7 on a laptop with Firefox 41.0.2 and I'm able to scroll downwards without any issues using the same mouse that was connected to the machine with Xubuntu 14.04.

Sometimes I come across fixes for linux issues on websites. I copy the information and email it to myself for future reference in case I have to reinstall the OS again. I can do a ctrl A and ctrl c but then the entire website is copied. The ads on the side, etc.

If I put my left mouse cursor on the first word in a thread and drag/highlight downwards, my mouse cursor stops line 35 on the page. If I do the same thing but backwards, my mouse cursor goes all the way up the page. This only happens on Firefox and Google Chrome. This doesnt' happen with mousepad, Libre writer or Libre calc.

Debian :: Disk Health Warning - Disk Part Of RAID5 Array

Feb 17, 2016

I received the following error when I got home from work today. If this was a windows environment, my first inclination would be to boot off my dvd and then run a chkdsk on the drive to flag any bad sectors that might exist. But there's a complication for me.

Code: Select allThis message was generated by the smartd daemon running on:
   host name:  LinuxDesktop
   DNS domain: [Empty]

The following warning/error was logged by the smartd daemon:
Device: /dev/sdc [SAT], 1 Currently unreadable (pending) sectors
Device info:
WDC WD5000AAKS-65V0A0, S/N:WD-WCAWF2422464, WWN:5-0014ee-157c5db9a, FW:05.01D05, 500 GB
For details see host's SYSLOG.

You can also use the smartctl utility for further investigation.The original message about this issue was sent at Sun Feb 14 13:43:17 2016 MST.Another message will be sent in 24 hours if the problem persists.

From gnome-disks
Code: Select allDisk is OK, 418 bad sectors (28° C / 82° F)

I did a bit of reading and it seems that most people suggest using badblocks to first get a list of badblocks from the drive and save it to a file. Then use e2fsck to then mark the blocks listed in the badblocks file as bad on the hard drive. My problem here is that this drive is part of a RAID5 array that hosts my OS. I wanted to confirm if this was still the correct process.I boot to my Live Debian disk, stop the raid array if it's active. Then run badblocks + e2fsck commands on the drive in question and then reboot.

Ubuntu Servers :: ISCSI + LVM Gone After Reboot?

Feb 21, 2011

I have an iSCSI target on my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server that is giving me access to 3 x 2TB volumes. I am using LVM to create 1 big volume and using it as a place for my backup software to write to. Upon initial setup I tested to see if the connection would still be there after a reboot, and it was. After going through the trouble of configuring my backup software (ZManda) and doing a few very large backups I had to reboot my SAN (OpenFiler) for hardware reasons. I took my server down while performing the maintenance and brought it back up only after the SAN work was done. Now, the LVM volume is listed as "not found" when booting.

Using iscsiadm I can see the target but LVM doesn't know of any volumes that exist using those targets. I need to get it back up and running and then troubleshoot the reboot issue.

Ubuntu :: ISCSI Login But No Device Nodes?

Aug 17, 2010

I'm running 10.04 64-bit diskless on ESXi, installed as a minimal virtual machine. I want this server to access an iSCSI drive. The machine can view the iSCSI shares with iscsiadm, and can even log into the drive. When I do an iSCSI login, this appears in /var/log/messages:

Aug 17 11:08:21 ubuntutest kernel: [1123295.329972] scsi4 : iSCSI Initiator over TCP/IP

So, it appears that open-iSCSI is working correctly. But no new /dev/sd* nodes appear, and nothing new appears in /dev/disk/by-path. I'd expect to see /dev/disk/by-path/ip-XXXXXXXXX. fdisk -l shows nothing but the boot drive. My guess is that the "minimal kernel" doesn't include some necessary module or driver.
