Re: Firewalld problem when deployed via Ansible on AWS

Hi,

I've seen people experience similar issues when they installed firewalld as normal user via sudo after a minimal install (some manual, some provisioned via ansible). Their fix was to erase and then reinstall package as root and reboot. Worth a try.

Re: Full disk encryption during installation - with FIPS enabled

LUKS will meet the DAR requirement for RHEL/CentOS 6. FIPS has more to do with crypto algorythms used. Not sure how stringent your requirements are, but there are resources out there (DISA STIG, NIST, USGB, etc).

Hi,

Could be wrong, but I thought it switched to faillock, and pam_tally2 was a no go for 7.X

Re: Custom ISO is giving error during installation

Hi,

Format your hard drive, then try installing. If you cant mount the drive somewhere else, use Gparted live disc.

Hi,

Yeah I can recommend LDAP+Kerberos. Have a domain of Linux systems joined to AD.

Re: fs.file-max back to default

Do you know the original value? If so, set it and run sysctl -p.

Re: Samba problem

Logging levels are 0-10 for Samba. I believe you can alter the logging to just a specific user (so the logging doesn't tax your system so heavily). Maybe create a separate test user just for this purpose.

Hello Everyone

Just wanted to say hi. As an admin I've been browsing forums for years, and on a whim joined this one the other day...probably because I just simply like CentOS. Its stability and relative compatibility with RHEL make it a great way to experiment without breaking things at work (or at least not as o...

That's the new kernel active but still having problems; Windows 10 workstations with SMB1 removed can't log in whilst those with it still active can, despite the line min server protocol = SMB2 being added to /etc/samba/smb.conf I'm totally confused! Hi, I think this is exactly the problem. Your pa...

Re: What virtualization software do you use?

I have used Virtualbox and kvm in the past for home use, but the last year and a half has been Proxmox. Debian based, free to run (but if not paying cannot update to next major release, have to rebuild clean for that, but still get debian security updates). I like it. Has similar aspects and interfa...
