General Networking Support in Linux / Fedora 16 - 1 problem
« Last post by stormbrush on February 02, 2013, 02:01:56 PM »
Dear friends I hope that someone will know what is going here in my Fedora, and how to fix problem
(Fedora 16 Gnome 3).
First I chose Wireless network and connect. Then I open terminal and start pppoe-setup.
When setup is finish I was unable to going on internet. Here is copy paste from ifconfig:

Linux Servers Support / Transport openAM 9 configurations between environments
« Last post by kabu on January 23, 2013, 08:43:05 PM »


I’m trying to find the least painful way of transporting config files between different environments and I have found many things that can break the system after the transport. I got a script that will keep the values for attributes correct for the ones that are depended on the environment but here is the list of couple of things that I’m not sure about. Maybe someone can shed some light on them.

What I want to do is to simply transport xml file based on the steps from the book for openAM 9 (simply export/import using ssoadm to xml file) but by analyzing the file in depth I find many differences that might break the system, so any help is appreciated.



In every xml file we have sections for ‘iplanet-am-auth-ldap-bind-passwd’ with hash value under it but in one xml file we’re missing one line with hash. I was wondering if we add that line with the correct hash value will it break the system or it won’t matter as long as the hash matches target environment?



Does the size of the ‘iplanet-am-logging-buffer-size’ has to match what was originally setup in the target environment or it will be ok if we overwrite the value from the source xml file?



For some reason we have different links in delegation-rules with the same name, for example:

# environment1 - sms://dc=test-domain,dc=net/sunEntitlementService/1.0/application/ws/1/entitlement/entitlements

# environment2 - sms://dc=test-domain,dc=net/sunEntitlementService/1.0/application/ws/1/entitlement/decision

# environment3  - sms://*dc=test-domain,dc=net/sunIdentityRepositoryService/1.0/application/agent


It could be due the way the server was setup long time ago or due to development processes over time ( I don’t know) but my question is:

If the rule names are the same but some(or all) options/values are different between environments and we overwrite them with the source file from different environment, will this break things or it won’t matter ?


Thank you,
Forum Talk / remote logging problem with syslog utility
« Last post by shri_22ram on January 23, 2013, 11:30:28 AM »
I am using Two centOS linux machines. From the third machine (CentoOS_Main) i am redirecting syslog messages to centoOS_1 . After some time i am redirecting syslog messages to CentOS_2. It works fine. After sometime i rebooted my CentOS_Main machine and i am observing very few syslog messages sent to centOS_1. Actually nothing has to sent to centOS_1.
I have observed this by capturing packets by tcpdump.

In /etc/syslog.conf i have used the ip of the centOS_1 machine. After that manually edited the syslog.conf by deleting the centOS_1 ip and entering centOS_2 ip.

Linux Kernel / debugfs : Unknown symbol debugfs_create_dir
« Last post by DAVER on January 17, 2013, 08:12:33 AM »
    I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 and i was trying to debug the kernel using debugs. I have compiled the kernel with required options like,

Code: [Select]
Kernel hacking[*] Magic SysRq key
Kernel hacking[*] Debug filesystem

I have written a module which include kernel linked list and kernel threads. The module works fine. Then i have added the debugfs code in the same module and i got the following error while inserting the module(i.e. during insmod command),
Code: [Select]
insmod: error inserting 'kll.ko': -1 Unknown symbol in module
I have checked dmesg and i found that the debufs calls like debugfs_create_dir are said to be unknown...

Now I'm stuck at this point.

Any pointers or help is welcome!!

Linux Servers Support / ldap restore from ldif file problem
« Last post by kabu on January 11, 2013, 04:01:06 PM »
I have a problem with restoring from a ldiff backup file that I did just recently using this command:
Code: [Select]
$ ldapsearch -h localhost -p 1389 -D cn=admin -w somepassword -b "dc=somedomain,dc=com" "objectclass=*" |perl -p -0040 -e 's/\n //' >> 01102013.vl34.ldiff
I removed everything from ldap using Apache Directory Studio but when I tried using this command:

Code: [Select]
$ sudo ldapadd -h localhost -p 1389 -x -D cn=admin -w somepassword -f 01102013.vl34.ldiff
I get this:
Code: [Select]
adding new entry  "dc=somedomain,dc=com"
adding new entry "ou=services,dc=somedomain,dc=com"
  and couple of more lines like that but then I get this:

I guess the process fails because not all data are imported, I did some research but can't seem to find

a real solution to that. I was hoping that someone could shed some light on that problem or maybe

solution if that happened to someone in the past?
I'm using CentOS 6.3 -  2.6.32-279.5.1.el6.i686 with OpenDS-2.2.1 for ldap.

Linux Servers Support / Group and user permissions on mediawiki
« Last post by sunnysthakur on January 07, 2013, 07:11:57 AM »
I am working on setup a wiki which should have users and group having read or write permission.
Before that we were using simple write to all methodology.

Now the challenge is this that i have created a 3 users and all of the 3 are able to write to wiki and update the page. Now what i what to do is that 2 users can write and one is able to view only.

I did a little bit R 'n' D but didn't success. Below were the things i did but didn't succeed.

By adding the below code in Localsettings.php 2 user can read [they are not able to edit] but one can write.

$wgGroupPermissions['Trusted'] = $wgGroupPermissions['user'];
$wgGroupPermissions['user'   ]['edit']          = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['Trusted']['edit']          = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['sysop'  ]['edit']          = true;

Another thing i did.

INSERT INTO user_groups (ug_user, ug_group) VALUES ('3', 'bureaucrat');
INSERT INTO user_groups (ug_user, ug_group) VALUES ('3', 'sysop');

Assign bureaucrat and sysop rights to user whose id is 3 but nothing happen.
Again userid 1 is able to edit but users having userid 3 again not able to edit, however both have same groups permissions now.

Please help me to resolve this issue.

Note :- I am using mediawiki 1.9.2
