diegoviolahi, i'm installing ubuntu server, and i want to add some stuff to it, like my own packages, software, etc, is there a way i can rebuild that system as a iso file to install it later on other machines?00:10
bitprophetdiegoviola: I don't know how to create custom installer ISOs, but you might want to look into "preseed" or "preseeding"00:22
bitprophetit's essentially a config file for the installer, so you drop the seed file (just a text file) on a web server or onto a custom ISO, and can point any installer to it. then it will follow your seed file, which could tell it to automatically install certain packages / settings / etc00:23
bitprophetI use it mostly to automate installs, but it's very flexible.00:24

bastid_raZorusing ubuntu desktop but i figured this channel would be more helpful. any guides on using bind9 to set DNS? i have a dynamic IP which changes at least twice a day.02:29
Jaggedbastid_raZor: are you trying to run a DNS server for your network, or update your domain name with your dynamic IP?02:30
bastid_raZorJagged: i'm trying to get the outside world to be able to find me with youfoundme.com .. i have apache hosting a few things.02:31
bastid_raZori currently have dyndns setting me a visible DNS to the world but i have to manually update it when my ip changes02:32
JaggedI think theres a bash script you can run as a cron job to update dyndns02:33
Jaggedsome broadband routers also support dyndns02:33
qman__bind is not what you need02:34
bastid_raZori have an outdated D-Link DI604 .. it does have an option about setting something for dns.02:34
qman__the router would have to support dyndns explicitly02:34
qman__not to be confused with your preferred DNS server02:35
Jaggedhttp://foertsch.name/DynDNS/ first hit on google02:35
Jaggedlooks promising02:35
Jaggedhttp://www.dyndns.com/support/clients/unix.html dynDNS also appears to have a perl scritp02:36
Jaggedsetup the perl script to run on a cron job every few hours and you should be allright02:36
bastid_raZornice, thanks for the clarification on what i needed.02:37
bastid_raZorseems i'll be needing to run ddclient as a dameon since i'll need to use the checkip option. very nice guys. thanks Jagged qman__02:42

SpaTi thought that if I did an ifconfig ethN down that it would bring the interface down and deassociate the IP08:30

SpaTpipedream: normaly I supose its not such a big deal but i use one server as failover for the other. when switching back i noticed that postfix would not send mail to the real server because it was delivering to itself...08:34

ryan8403instead it seems to go straight to root09:03

poisonbitI've always used Debian for my corporate firewalls (9), but i also've some gentoo legacy firewalls from other administrators11:17
poisonbitI am planning to migrate the internal network (ldap servers, web, ddbb, email, dns, subversion, ntp, memcached, dhcp, samba, nfs, jabber, etc) to ubuntu server 8.04.11:17
poisonbitI'm evaluating if it should also migrate the 9 firewalls, because they really work well, but some are still with etch (oldstable in Debian).11:17
poisonbitIt is a complex network, segmented into vlans, tunneled between all extremes, bridged over multiple active instances of openvpn. With ebtables, routing tables, filtering, traffic control, manageable switches, multiple public ranges in several ISPs, fiber between offices, etc..11:18
poisonbitMy /etc/network/interfaces in Debian use to be very complicated and long, (adding bonding and many DMZ's of the above), and full of ifup / down hacks.11:19
poisonbitUbuntu server is recommended for this kind of firewalls and ... Do it happen to be free from "2.0" things like the desktop "network-manager"?11:19
poisonbitAlso, where can i read about security management (as in project, not as in operative system) in ubuntu server ?11:20

poisonbitor was 2011 ?11:30
alex_joni11 for desktop, 2013 for server11:30
poisonbitwell, it's a valid option for me now, also it will help to "clean" the migrated systems, and easy the new migration when 10.04 gets supported11:31
poisonbithehe, one of the firsts steps for the late_command, for the pressed files:  purge ufw (i've my own framework)11:33
