Fedora Servers :: Samba Messages In Syslog - Allow Logging To The Standard Samba Logfiles

Mar 18, 2010

I wish to prevent the samba messages (mainly nmbd and winbindd) from appearing in the system log (/var/log/messages). I want to allow samba logging to the standard samba logfiles, but prevent the syslog getting clogged up by samba. I added syslog = 0 to smb.conf and reloaded the config but the messages were still appearing. I also tried the following (and restarted the syslog via /sbin/service syslog restart) # Suppress messages from samba.

nmbd.* /dev/null
smbd.* /dev/null
winbindd.* /dev/null

For interests sake the messages I'm getting are below (I'm not concerned about the messages themselves, I can chase them up at my leisure via the samba logs) Mar 18 09:58:29 SERVER nmbd[3808]: query_name_response: Multiple (2) responses received for a query on subnet xx.yy.z.zz for name DOMAIN<1d>. Mar 18 09:58:29 SERVER nmbd[3808]: This response was from IP xx.yy.z.zz, reporting an IP address of xx.yy.z.zz.

CentOS 5 Server :: Samba Not Allowing Logging From Remote Machine?

Jan 26, 2011

I have installed CentOS 5.5 along with the Samba package. I have it configured (i believe), but when I try to access a share, it is not accepting my UN/PW. I have copied the smb.conf file from a working computer over to this one, but it is still not accepting my login. Anyone know of any other files I should check?

I have moved a working smb.conf file to this new box, and both computers have the same UN/PW's

Ubuntu :: Queue - Prevent From Starting Automatically Upon Logging In?

May 8, 2010

I have a couple apps that I cannot figure out how to prevent them from starting automatically upon logging in. They are NOT listed in my Startup Applications under preferences. For example, pidgin. Pidgin automatically starts at each login even though it is not in the startup apps nor can I find an option in pidgin itself. Tomboy is another. I always get an error that tomboy cannot be added to my panel when I restart. The error in the tomboy panel log is that tomboy is already running. Does ubuntu have a hidden "start up" folder like Windows does in the start menu? Where can I clear this file/folder?

General :: Segfaults Are Not Logging Into /var/log/messages

Dec 8, 2010

I'm using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5. In this whenever a user process crashes due to segmentaion faults , it was not logged in /var/log/messages. Even dmesg is also not showing any messages related to this.

Where as in another distributions(Cent OS 5) I've seen segfaults messages in /var/log/messages whenever my user process crashed.dmesg also showing the segfaults.

Is there any settings that to enabled so that it logs segfaults into /var/log/messages.

I cross checked /etc/syslog.conf of both the systems. Both are same and even /etc/sysconfig/syslog files.

General :: Logging Ssh Messages In A Separate File Using Syslog-ng?

Jul 2, 2011

I am facing a problem while trying to log SSH messages in a separate file, say, /var/log/ssh_logs. I have tried modifying the syslog-ng.conf file as follows:

filter f_ssh { facility(auth, authpriv) and match("sshd[[0-9]+]:"); };
destination d_ssh { file ("/var/logs/sshd_logs"); };
log {


But still I am not able to get the ssh logs in the new file. They continue to go to /var/log/auth.

Server :: Error Messages For System And Hardware Failures?

Aug 4, 2010

I need to scrape logfiles and do some pattern matching for a series of hardware and system faults;

For example:
Network interface down / up
IO errors
Out of Inodes
Out of Diskspace
Memory Errors
Power Failure

When the appropriate Strings appear in the log (assuming /var/logs/messages)Then a trap will be sent. (Customer specific SNMP solution) So what I need (I think) is a list of the strings I need to match.Has anybody any idea where I can find a list of strings which will definitely appear in the log - RHEL5 ?

Debian Configuration :: Shorewall (Shoreline?) Firewall Up And Running, But It's Logging To /var/log/messages?

Jan 29, 2011

I've got a Shorewall (Shoreline?) firewall up and running, but it's logging to /var/log/messages. I'd much rather have it logging to another location e.g. /var/log/firewall but can't find (a clear enough) explanation on how to do this. Apparently, it varies greatly depending on the distro, the kernel, and the version of Shorewall that is running. You'd think it would be something as simple as setting a path in a config file, but apparently not. I'm running a stock Lenny kernel on the firewall machine. It comes with version 4.0.15 of Shorewall.

Server :: Some Options In System-config-samba Dialog Are Not Working Properly?

Apr 13, 2010

I am using Fedora 12. I have the following problem, when i working with system-config-samba dialog:I add the new user on the server:as following:

Unix username: vova
Windows username:test

As described in Customisation Guide for Red Hat 9: "If the user has a different username on a Windows machine and will be logging into the Samba serverfrom the Windows machine, specify that Windows username in the Windows Username field."So i logged from the Windows machine not under test(Windows username) but under vova.And i logged in without the problem. However it seems that samba should check windows username=test (as have written in samba-config) and ask an password for different users. And additionally, if samba check the currect user in Windows itself and verify it with Unix user, what for we need write the Windows username in samba config? I don't understand

Ubuntu :: System Is Logging On As Root

Mar 7, 2011

I am using Lucid lynx, 1 partition, Linux is the only OS, and I am the only user. Everything is working fine until I click on "Places> File Browser" the system ask for root password.

Then I enter the Root password and I can then go where ever I want. ( It does not do this every time, just most of the time.)

When I open File Browser the first things listed in the left pane are ROOT, DESKTOP, (which is the root desktop), then FILE SYSTEMS, etc.

I think all the little differences I am experiencing are a result of logging on as ROOT user. I think that when I open File Browser (I use this a lot) and it ask for the ROOT password I am then ROOT and remain ROOT until I log off (I never do, because I am the only user). When I am root, things will look and feel different than when I am logged on as Wayne, but there are some things that I cannot do as Wayne (such as open File Browser). I opened K3b to burn a disk and a window poped up saying "it is not wise to run K3b as root..."
