Ubuntu Servers :: BEST 10.04lts Desktop Automated Deployment

Aug 25, 2010

vote on the best automated deployment for 10.04 lts desktop! have 50units identical pc's, one pdc (openldap, bind, dhcp) and one fs (nfs server). thinking of installing just one pc with all the updates, program addons and stuff, then thinking of: disk image the disk and copy to the rest of the 49units and just edit the host name and activate the etho by sudo mv /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules.old would this be ok? i mean there will be no problem if users authenticate an stuff?

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - 8.04LTS And 10.04LTS Have A Pre-installed NIC Driver That Is Not Compatible With The Bcm5705?

May 7, 2010

I attempted a distribution upgrade from 8.04LTS (32 bit) to 10.04LTS (32 bit). Once converted, I had no wireless or wired internet, along with numerous other bugs. After relentless hours of trying to resolve the problems, I converted back to 8.04LTS and installed the b43 drivers; I have wireless, however, still no wired connection. I've provided the outputs of the "sudo lshw -C network" terminal command below both before conversion to 10.04 and after reversion back to 8.04LTS. You'll notice that the NIC is not even listed after reversion (this is the same output that 10.04LTS gave me as well).

1.) Does anyone know if the terminal command will identify the NIC if the NIC Driver (assuming it's tg3) is not installed?

2.) Does 8.04LTS and 10.04LTS have a pre-installed NIC driver that is not compatible with the bcm5705?

Ubuntu :: Mouse Cursor / Video Corrupted After Upgrade From 8.04LTS To 10.04LTS

May 30, 2010

I've recently upgraded from 8.04LTS to 10.04LTS. About 90% of the time after boot-up, my mouse cursor seems to be corrupted; I can vaguely see the arrow (or part of it anyway) underneath some squiggly lines. The application KeePassX is affected too; there are some display corruption issues. Sometimes (maybe 1 boot in 10) the mouse cursor looks fine. I have a Radeon 9200 and have looked in the Forum for similar problems but they don't quite match up to mine.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 8.04LTS To 10.04LTS?

Nov 1, 2010

I initiated the on-line upgrade from 8.04 LTS to 10.04 LTS. When the upgrade finished and restarted the computer, I got the following messages:

ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/32a1eb0a-c9a4-4867-ac4d-5fbb2acafa76 does not exist. opping to a shell! BusyBox v1.13.3 (ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1 ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. (initramfs)

It leaves me at that initramfs prompt.

Ubuntu Servers :: Is 10.04lts Acting As Internetserver Secure?

Apr 3, 2011

On a windows system I installed xampp, and let web applications on the computer be acceseable via internet . On a forum I was firmly instructed that it was an unsecure pracsis.Now I saw on utube, that it is possible to install apache and php on ubuntu 10.04 lts desktop edition.

q1: What shall I install to get apache and php and sql databases?

q2: Is runnings web applications that are acceseable via internet on a ubuntu desktop edition with the above descripted software also unacceptable in terms of security, or is it a productive secure platform. I was told that productive platforms are ok to connect to the internet.

Ubuntu Servers :: Stop Responding: Goes Into An Automated Scanning Mode

Jul 14, 2010

I just installed ubuntu as a learning tool. It was going fine until the next day after the install. This happened on two reinstall of ubuntu server 10.4. All was installed was lamp, squid, privoxy, tor, shorewall, and phpmyadmin. I have added 3 websites to the server.

Today, I noticed my internet stopped responding on my other pc which is linked to my server for internet access( privoxy). When I turned on the server, I noticed the screen was purging out random lines. I don't know what they mean, but it was a never ending series of lines filling the whole screen. To stop it, I ctrl+c. Some of these lines read usb, keyboard, mouse, etc. I am guessing the system went hay-wired.

When I reboot the machine, it did it again. This time I don't have the cmd prompt. I didn't know another other way to properly shutdown so I just cold reboot the machine. The next time it booted up, all seems normal like it always have been. My sites, internet is working.

I probably didn't provide enough info to diagnose this behavior. As mentioned before, it happened the first time I installed the server and it is happening again with the same applications installed.

Edited: It happened again. Some of the lines I could make out are these.

Bug: unable to handle kernal NULL pointer deference
Kernal panic-not syncing: Attempted to kill the idle task!
Error panic occured: Switching back to text console.
The server froze at this point.

General :: Automated Telnet For Testing Servers

Aug 20, 2009

So I have a script that is supposed to check to see if a mail server is up and responsive. What I want to know is how I can send it the telnet escape character. I've tried:VAR=`(sleep 5;echo quit) | (telnet mailserver.timbuktu.net 25 2>&- )`

This works BUT there is a problem as the mail server may have been accidentally firewalled off. If this happens, my automated checking script will hang. What I want to do is send the escape character so that the '>' prompt comes up. They I should be able to send it "quit" even if it is hung on not getting a response from the server. VAR=`(sleep 5;echo -e '^]';sleep 1;echo quit) | (telnet arhqmg01.usarec.army.mil 25 2>&- )`

The above doesn't work. telnet interprets CTRL+] as '^]' but you can't type '^]' and get the same effect. So I guess what I need is to send the actual keystrokes. Like echo "somenumber" ; echo quit

Networking :: Automated Way Of Loging Into Servers By Netbios Name Instead Of Ip's

Sep 18, 2010

In recent days, (today is September 18, 2010) I've been surfing the web trying to learn how to access nodes in my soho lan by netbios names instead of having to connect through the ip number, because ip's change every time according to DHCP assignments. I do not know what has happened to the "new" command mount.cifs, but things seem to have become a bit more complicated with the new version. Security problems, they say, and surely that's the reason.

I show here an automated way of loging into servers by netbios name instead of having to resort to the use of IP numbers, hosts files, wins servers and all that jazz. This is especially useful if your soho lan have five or more network nodes, and you do not want to go finding out the ip numbers assigned to the machines you want to connect to (temporarily or permanently).

This output is piped to gawk to isolate the line containing <00>, and gawk outputs the first element (print $1) of that line, which happens to be the ip of the server ServerName. I tested the script in my soho network, which now has Linux, Windows XP and Windows 7 nodes, and it worked perfectly for both tipes of servers.I'm using GNU's gawk, but I'm pretty sure that awk would do the job just as well.

Ubuntu Servers :: Fully Automated Network - Host Name Configure And DNS Register In The First Boot

Jul 29, 2011

My organization is running a VMware vSphere based platform. On top of that we have a Sun Gridengine cluster consists of a number of ubuntu VMs.At the moment, we deploy new cluster nodes from the VM template. Although it already saves us lots of time, we still need to configure the network, host name, register DNS record manually.In a near future, we will need to add 100+ more hosts to the cluster. So we are seeking a automated deployment so that a VM does the following during its first boot:

1)configure the network for the correct IP with DHCP or manual.

2)request a designate host name (maybe from a pre-defined datasource?) and configure host name.

3)register itself to our DNS servers.

We don't really have experiences for running big cluster. So welcome to share your opinions and experiences.Specially I'd very keen to find out if there is any well-proven solution right there or I will need to implement from the scratch.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Samba3 3.3.14 On CentOS 5 Deployment

Nov 16, 2010

Anyone done a deployment of Samba3 > 3.3.4. Had to install this version as I am preparing a domain for Windows 7 computers. My installation on CentOS went well. smbd and nmbd are running OK. I am able to test user accounts with the

smbclient -U usertest \hostusertest

However, I cannot seem to be able to add a computer, even a Win XP workstation to the domain. I used smb.conf files from a previous Samba 3.0.28 with minimal modifications. Kindly forward your smb.conf file, here is mine:

workgroup = DOMAIN
netbios name = DOMAIN_SERVER
server string = Samba Server Version %v
passdb backend = tdbsam
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log

1. kickstart == is only for new OS instalation, it needs a Linux CD source
2. systemimage == is for clone the partition (not massive deployment)
3. kiwi == only for SUSE

General :: Multiple System Deployment (95 Percent Debian)

Jun 17, 2011

The last days I try to find a good and easy solution to keep new installed Servers with same basic configuration. For example every new Installed Server should have:

- phpmyadmin installed and configured
- munin installed and configured
- mysql server with some predefined users and passwords
- same users created with existing ssh keys. also ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file with pub key inside

At the moment I use some bash script to create the users and sync the keys. Basically I need to install predefined packages and remove some other packages configure some config files (or copy working configs). I have looked at cfengine and puppet Server. And I am asking my self if this tools are overkill for this task.

General :: Python Package Deployment Tool (Executable)

Jul 6, 2010

I am writing a python package deployment tool for linux based platforms. I have tried various existing tool sets but none of them is up to the mark and they have their own issues. Initially I'll start with simple approach.
1. Find all the modules/packages and copy to "lib" directory.
2. Find python's *.so dependencies (system libs) and copy them to "syslib"
3. Copy python (executable) and libpython2.6.so.1.0 into "dist" directory.
4. Set up temp environment
5. Run main script using "python <main script>.py"

The idea is to produce a cleaner directory structure. Neither I am creating a boot loader nor I am converting main script file into executable. It's plain vanilla stuff. Using above steps I have pulled down a package using wxPython's demo example "pySketch.py". You can download the archive from here: [URL]. After extracting the contents, run the executable file using "./run". This file sets temporary environment variables and execute "pySketch.py". This is eventually not working. I think I am not able to set up temporary environment properly or may be missing some other stuff.

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows Deployment Services - PXE Boot Aborted (Grub Rescue)

Dec 23, 2010

I previously had a machine that dual booted Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 32 bit. I recently attempted to wipe out the 32 bit Ubuntu and install 64 bit Ubuntu.

Here what I did:
- I booted from the LiveCD, and had no problems
- I formatted /sda3 using gparted. I checked that Ubuntu resided on /sda3 via the command "sudo fdisk -l". This worked fine.
- I then clicked the "install ubuntu" option on the desktop, and chose the largest chunk of free space.
- About 15% through the install, I was told the CD could not be read from due to a potential scratch or issue. I then tried to revert back to the Os running from the LiveCD, and things went crazy. I had trouble shutting down the machine and did a hard reset.

Now, whenever I boot I am greeted with the following message:
Windows Deployment Services: PXE boot aborted
error: no such partition
grub rescue>
At the grub rescue prompt when I ls, I see:
(hd0) (hd0,4) (hd0,2) (hd0,1)

I can still boot the LiveCD. I tried that again and tried to again format sda3 using gparted but had no luck fixing the issue. When booting from the LiveCD I am also told by gparted that "sda1 does not coincide with a cylinder boundary" or something of that nature.

Fedora Security :: Securing A Server For Deployment In Untrusted Zone?

Apr 1, 2010

I have to deploy a server to some customers that should not be given access to the server itself. I know that nothing is 100% secure but I've searched without finding a decent answer (maybe I googled for the wrong terms ?)I need some advice about encrypted filesystem. * The server must boot without asking for a passphrase (the server will be in a restricted access area so typing a password could take a while). I can't store the password for luks in an unencrypted file so it seems a loop to me. The only way out I can see is to store the passphrase in the boot binaries (better than nothing...) but this results in more work for me.* possibly the customer should not be able to move the hard disks to another pc, i.e. reading the passphrase from some unique hardware ID. This is risky but I could add a master passphrase to be used in case of hardware replacement

Software :: OOo 3.2 Crashes In Ubuntu 10.04lts?

Aug 15, 2010

Just upgraded from Ubuntu 8.04 lts to 10.04 lts. Now OOo crashes about half the time I try to open a network (samba) file in OpenOffice.org Writer or calc. However, when I have the same file on the local machine, it has no problems opening the file.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling OOo from Synaptic still crashes on opening some files (but not all files) from the network.

Uninstalled and reinstalled using the OOo download: 3.2.1; had to use gftp to download it; http would not save it.

Still having the problem with OOo 3.2.1 crashing on many files.

Workaround is to open readonly, then resave it. Cannot resave on top of the read only file , so it is a two step process.

Is Ubuntu 10.04 incompatible with OOo 3.2?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04LTS - Errors After It Ejects The CD?

I just purchased a HP G2-144DX.

Ubuntu 10.04 installed like a charm (I only need to find out why the headphones work but the main speakers do not), but at the end when the procedure ejected the CD, I immediately got:

I/O Error on Device sr0

repeated over and over for a couple dozen blocks.

I did a hard reset and the system is acting normally, but I'm wondering if other people have had the same problems?

Also, when running glxgears, is a score of 3000 normal for the Intel GMA HD video chipset?
