Re: Cockpit.service can't be enabled

Yes it will!

Note that you need to enable cockpit.socket - not .service.

Re: Cockpit.service can't be enabled

Cockpit uses socket activation...

Code: Select all

PCID Speculation

With the performance hit hitting KPTI patched systems and the apparent mitigation of this performance decrease with systems that have PCID support. Would anyone care to speculate whether or not Redhat will backport PCID support to the kernel in the current 7.x series of releases? I'm thinking they'v...

Re: Logrotate Removing Logs

Thanks that pointed me in the right direction - So when logrotate is called via cron it passes /etc/logrotate.conf as the config, that file has an include on /etc/logrotate.d/* . The main config file /etc/logrotate.conf has the logrotate directive set to 4, when passing the configs from /etc/logrota...

Logrotate Removing Logs

I'm trying to set up a custom logrotate config for some Apache virtualhost logs, but logrotate is creating the new empty log files and the old ones ares nowhere to be found. I ran find on the entire filesystem and they simply don't exist - can anyone help: cat /etc/logrotate.d/custom_httpd /storage/...

Serial Console Quiet Boot

I've enabled a serial console in the grub configuration file because I'd like to script the unlocking of several dm-crypt disks. Due to the amount of encrypted disks attached to the system, I have to have quiet booting enabled because otherwise each disk gets a separate password prompt making it dif...

Offloading dm-crypt container close event to initramfs

I'm using zfs as my root filesystem on a dm-crypt encrypted filesystem - before you say it I know you don't support zfs, but my question is more focused on cryptsetup/dracut than anything else. So due to the way zfs works, pools don't get exported until you exit the running system back into the init...

Re: Securing NFS

NFS supports kerberos, which guarantees that the NFS client is really authorised. Right - yes I had already mentioned kerberos in my original post... As already stated keberos seems overly complicated for my use case, but admittedly I'm not that clued up on it. Really i'd just like authentication f...

Securing NFS

Apologies if this has been posted a thousand times already and whilst I have seen plenty of articles describing this topic, not one of them has answered all my questions. Anyway my file server has always used samba due to it's interoperability with Windows clients, but it dawned on me very recently ...
