hmcatrying to recover a 10tb raid600:39
hmcaanyone here ?  trying to do this - echo "clean" > /sys/block/md1/md/array_state , get a echo write error: Invalid argument00:47
jjk9___hmca:  here but don't know00:48
hmcadesperatly trying to get a 10tb raid6 up again00:49
jjk9___hmca:  i can try something similar here and see what it does if you can wait a few mins00:50
hmcajjk9___: thanks, i have seen this as a way out to my problem but ubuntu people get this error Invalid argument00:51
jjk9___hmca:  so I don't know what this all is.. I have a 2tb raid1 on md1 and  ls -l /sys/block/md1/md/array_state gives -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4096 2010-08-13 10:10 /sys/block/md1/md/array_state  is there a man page for this stuff?00:55
hmcajjk9___: following this hoping it can help, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1538137 , take a look00:57
jjk9___hmca: k00:57
hmcamine is raid6 10 1.5TB disks00:57
jjk9___jjk9___:  reading ...00:59
jjk9___hmca:  that looks to deep for my tiny mind :( sorry dont think i can be of any help01:02
hmcajjk9___: thanks01:03
jjk9___hmca: what does cat /sys/block/md1/md/array_state return?01:04
jjk9___hmca: for me it returns clean01:05
hmcajjk9___: inactive01:06
hmcai have a failed device , faulty removed01:08
jjk9___hmca:  is there anything that might be done using mdadm?01:08
hmcai have active devices 9 , working devices 9 and failed devices 101:08
hmcai'am assumning , faulty removed using mdadm -E /dev/sdi , means the mdadm is managing the raid, but why is it not runung , active, raid6 is dual redundancy, so i assumed i could just lost a disk01:09
jjk9___hmca:  I'm not to up on raid 6 can it run with one bad drive? or do you need to put a new one in and use like mdadm to add it to the raid?01:10
hmcai was assuming it would still run with 1 broken disk01:10
hmcaDisk util on gnome says State: not running, partially asssemble01:11
jjk9___hmca:  like I say I not so up on raid6 would need to go read about it and that could take forever01:11
hmcapeople start working here in arround 8 hours01:11
jjk9___hmca:  maybe you need to tell the raid to go on without the bad drive?01:12
jjk9___hmca:  u can do a lot in 8 hrs01:12
jjk9___hmca: ok I just read wiki on raid6 and they say you can lose 2 drives and still run01:14
hmcai only have one faulty, so do i need to manualy tell mdadm to remove it from md0?01:15
hmcalets see how to do01:15
jjk9___hmca:  i'm searching for docs on that01:16
hmcahttp://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-server-73/mdadm-raid-5-single-drive-failure-644325/ , maybe what i am failing 2 understand is that failling a disk as to be replaced, i thouth it could be ok to workl01:24
jjk9___hmca:  im reading this basic one http://www.review-ninja.com/2009/05/software-raid-raid-arrays-mdadm-on.html01:25
jjk9___hmca:  I agree it seems like it should keep working however I don't know the behavior when you reboot with a failed rive in the array...01:26
jjk9___hmca:  what does cat /proc/mdstat tell01:30
jjk9___hmca: so did u reboot into this or did the drive fail while the raid was working. I guess I'm asking if this is from reboot or while working. It looks from the link you gave as if you need to use mdadm to logically remove the failed drive from the array.  I need to try out fail modes on my raid1 for when it happens for real so I know how to handle it01:33
hmcathe system totaly crash while rebilding , i have a 45 drive bays system , only with 10 now , i had to power down the machive , mdadm says the drive as been removed from array , mybe i need to actualy remove it from the system ? is that it ?01:35
jjk9___hmca: maybe you need to tell mdadm what the new array is . like when you make the array from scratch...01:36
jjk9___hmca:  I don't think that physical removal makes a diff if ma=dadm already thinks the failed on is gone01:37
hmca--create / assemble , they have all refused to activate the array , yes but i still removed it , waiting for the machine to come up01:37
hmcamy backplanes are all hotswapable , but i told the os to reboot01:38
jjk9___hmca: good luck!01:38
jjk9___hmca:  there might be someone over on #ubuntu who knows about raid6 etc01:39
hmcajjk9___: i still not beliving but it worked, let me check01:40
jjk9___hmca:  woohoo!01:41
hmcait is sayin on proc , reshape + 80,2 %01:41
jjk9___hmca:  when I replace with raid1 it takes for ever to resync01:41
hmcanow i just need to see if iscsitarget piks the md0 , a see if my hfsplus+ part from mac os x is there01:42
jjk9___hmca:  so what did the trick?01:42
hmcai know how to improve speed , give me a sec01:42
hmcafisicaly removing the disk01:42
jjk9___hmca:  that really surpriss me but maybe due to startup scripts01:43
jjk9___hmca:  md startup might have been looking for all and bawking on the bad or something01:43
hmcai will discuss more on this i u give me a sec/few minuts, need to goo to the mac station to see if the big disk shows up in iscsi01:43
hmcajjk9___: back back, feel happy..., md0 running iscsitarget runing, mac station mounting iscsitarge , violume seems ok/not corrupted01:51
hmcanow for speeding up the rebuilds01:51
hmcai have the info somewhere, w801:52
jjk9___hmca:  glad 2 hear u r out of trouble01:52
hmcait took a week for a guy in the office to upload almost 8TB into this , very slow process, i didnt wanna him or me to do it again , time is money01:53
echosystmhi guys01:53
echosystmive just installed apache - what is the best way to make the www directory writeable by my user?01:53
jjk9___echosystm:  hi01:53
echosystmshould i symlink it to a folder in home?01:53
echosystmshould i modify the permissions on /var/www?01:54
echosystmor should i just change the config to point to a folder in home?01:54
jjk9___echosystm:  on my web server (disclaimer: im no expert) I have the folder owned by the user and apache is a member of the group that can write to that01:56
jjk9___echosystm:  that way user and apache can write to user folder but user can't write to other folders01:58
fluvvellechosystem, rather than change apache01:59
fluvvellive made the user a member of the www-data group01:59
echosystmis that all you needed to do fluvvell ?02:00
echosystmdir /var/www/ is owned by root:root02:00
fluvvellechosystm, as long as the folders where the www files are going to be have group read/write permissions02:00
fluvvellyes, but html under that ?02:00
jjk9___fluvvell:  doesn't that mean that the users can access each others  folders if they all belong to www-data?02:01
echosystmi might just change the apache config to point to somewhere in home, all good02:01
fluvvelljjk9___, yes but he implied one user02:01
jjk9___fluvvell:  then np02:02
fluvvellechosystm, where we had implemented the changes to apache, it came to greif much later when we did upgrades and updates to apache02:02
fluvvellmuch better off to keep it closer to the installed standard.02:03
fluvvellclearly there are configs you *will* change02:03
fluvvellechosystm, how did you install apache ?02:05
echosystmapt-get install apache202:05
fluvvelland whats your output of    ps aux |grep apache02:06
fluvvellare the apache processes running as root as well ?02:07
echosystmone is02:07
echosystm4 arent02:07
echosystm*3 arent02:07
fluvvellso what user are the other ones running as ?02:07
echosystm3 are www-data02:07
fluvvellyep, I have 1 as root, 5 as www-data02:08
fluvvellonce you set up your virtual hosts, I think the files you create will need to be www-data owned.  I'd not consider myself an expert, but thats been my experience over about 5 or six apache servers we run.02:09
echosystmthe actual www-data folder will be owned by root though02:09
echosystmso even if i am in www-data myself, i cannot write to that folder02:09
echosystmim just going to change the document root, its easiest02:10
echosystmeasy to change back if i need to02:10
fluvvellno but add yourself to the www-data group.02:10
fluvvellof course the good thing about ubuntu/linux is experimenting :-)02:10
fluvvellthe conventions that are adopted are just there to make things easier and more consistent.02:11
fluvvelland I guess secure.02:11
echosystmalrighty, thanks for your help02:12

twbOK, looking05:01
twbI already have linux-firmware installed (presumably its in main, not restricted), so I'll install hostapd and wpa_supplicant and see if it Just Works05:02

twbWhere is lucid's equivalent of /lib/udev/net.agent?10:38
twbYou know, the thing that makes allow-hotplug entries in /etc/network/interfaces *actually work*10:38
twbUnfortunately there's not debian-to-ubuntu diff on http://packages.qa.debian.org/u/udev.html, because lucid's udev is built from a git snapshot10:39
\shtwb, regarding some release notes and working with ifenslave-2.6. which had debian wise the "allow-hotplug" format, someone said, we don't have allow-hotplug that's why we are using "auto"10:40
twbWell, auto is not the same thing10:40
\shi know :)10:41
twbSee, there is this bug10:41
twbWhen I unplug the SERIAL cable, it removes and readds the USB wifi device10:41
twbWhich results in me not having an AP anymore10:41
twb(The wifi device is configured as an AP with hostapd.)10:42
\shyou mean "serial cable" as in "serial cable" and not as in "usb2serial" ... because why should something remove the usb device when unplugging a serial cable10:43
twbSo you would THINK that simply changing "auto wifi0" to "allow-hotplug wifi0" would DTRT, but no, it causes wifi0 to never ever ever be raised, probably because the udev maintainer assumed everyone was using laptops running NM.  ARGH ARGH ARGH.10:43
twb\sh: yes, it has a real serial port.10:43
twbAdmittedly, I'm then plugging a USB-to-serial bridge into its 9-pin serial port, and the plugging the USB end into my laptop10:44
twbI'd be amazed if linux can see that it's a USB-to-serial bridge from the serial side10:45

yoosefhi. ive been running ubuntu server 10.04 for a bit over month now. i use it as fileserver on my lan, its also running openssh-server. everything seems to work fine... but i think the server load averages are bit too high, for system only running samba & openssh-server. load avarages are anything between 1.00 - 1.20. most of the times its 1.00. got 4gb ram and pentium 2.8ghz installed.. any ideas what might cause that load?14:01

Datz* * * * *  cat /var/log/fail2ban.log > /var/www/site/fail2ban.log 2> ~/error.log18:55
Datzer.. space before 2?18:55
jjk9Datz:  I just skipped spaces :( sorry , yes 2 is stdout and 3 is stderr so18:55
Datzok, spaced :)18:56
* Datz is waiting.. :p18:56
Datznot seeing anything. THis is exact entry * * * * *  cat /var/log/fail2ban.log > /var/www/site/fail2ban.log 2 > ~/error.log18:58
jjk9Datz:  ok let me try here wait one18:59
RoyKDatz: no space after 218:59
RoyKDatz: also, make sure /var/log/fail2ban.log is readable for the user running the cron job19:00
Datzthe command works outside of cron19:00
RoyKfor that user?19:00
Datznothing in ~ yet19:01
RoyKok, I think I've seen something like that earlier - try to create a script doing cat ... > log etc and run that script19:01
RoyKfrom cron19:01
Datzhumm, ok good idea19:01

RoyKDatz: or even better - setup fail2ban to log to a named pipe (or fifo) and read from that, copying the info to separate files19:05
Datzok, well I created the script, and ran it. It works19:06
Datzmade a cronjob for it "* * * * *  ~/test" <- is that correct19:06
DatzRoyK: that last option sounds too complex for me currently19:07
jjk9Datz:  maybe pipe stdout (&2) and stderr(&3) to the log 3>&2 2>~/error.log19:07
=== cwillu_at_work is now known as cwlu
RoyKjjk9: stdout is file 1 and stderr is file 219:08
=== cwlu is now known as cwillu_at_work
RoyKstdin is 019:08

Datz* * * * *  cat /var/log/fail2ban.log > /var/www/site/fail2ban.log 3>&2 2>~/error.log  <- ?19:09
RoyKDatz: change the crontab to use the log, and beleive me, 0 is stdin, 1 is stdout, 2 is stderr19:09
jjk9Datz:  so when I try * * * * * echoo "boo" > /root/tt 3>&2 2>tterr3  i   I get errors echoo not found in tterr319:10
RoyKechooo asdf > output 2> errors19:10
RoyKDatz: but run the script, not the script's contents from cron19:11
jjk9RoyK: my bad u are right19:11
RoyKsomething > output == something 1> output19:11
* Datz is slightly confused19:12
* Datz re-reads19:12
qman__Datz, I see one problem, your original cron is missing a parameter, "*/5 * * *" is only four19:12
* Datz checks on this19:13
RoyKDatz: http://pastebin.com/TMwW380D19:13
RoyKget it?19:14
qman__also, you don't specify a user19:14
qman__one job in my /etc/cron.d/, for example19:14
RoyKqman__: no need to do that with a normal cron job - only the ones in /etc/cron* needs that19:14
DatzRoyK: got it19:14
RoyKif adding it with crontab -e, it's run under the current user19:15
qman__13 * * * * root [script]19:15
RoyKif in /etc/cron.d, you need a user19:15
Datz! it's working19:15
Datzha.. I triggered ubottu19:16
Datzit's almost like it started magically working..19:17
DatzI checked on what qman__ said about 4 time entries, there were 5 at that moment in time, I uncommitted entry and it works..19:19
Datzwell, thanks guys :)19:19
jjk9Datz:  also if it fails now and u don't have mail setup then you won't know til next tome u login19:19
alektohow could a shell initialization file in a home directory that is group writable be a security risk?19:40
RoyKalekto: some member of the group can add the line 'rm -rf $HOME' at the end - that won't be much fun19:50
alektoah, I see.. letting other users be able to delete home dir is not a good idea ;)19:54
alektoso what about executable files in /usr/sbin that is world writable? could this really harm the system?19:56
RoyKdon't do that19:57
RoyKexecutables in system path should _NEVER_ be world-writable19:58
alektooh, okay.. what could this result in? everybody shutting down the system?20:00
qman__that's just asking for an infection20:04
qman__drop some malicious code into something root uses, wait until root uses it, game over20:05

silentwater77i installed apparmor with apt-get on a fresh lucid minimal. apparmor_status said command not found. /etc/init.d/apparmor start gives me just a new prompt. what do i have to do to make it even start ?20:12
RoyKsilentwater77: apparmor is installed by default iirc20:13
silentwater77i have a fresh 10.04 minimal...apt-get install apparmor just installed it.20:14
RoyKthat should be enough20:15
silentwater77apparmor_status says command not found20:15

dominicdinadahow to flush user mail i let my cron logs get to big20:17
RoyKthey should be flushed automatically, in realtime20:17
silentwater77thanks royk...my desktop gives me the same messages20:17
RoyKwhat mta are you using?20:17
silentwater77on my vps i get:     root@dice:/var/log# aa-status20:18
silentwater77apparmor module is not loaded.20:18
dominicdinadaebox and webmin show 20,000 msgs from the cron, ebox jobs20:18
silentwater77should i better go for selinux ?20:18
RoyKI really don't know - I haven't used the minimal setup for some time - regular works well20:19
RoyKdominicdinada: which mta are you using?20:19
RoyKubottu: explain mta20:19
ubottuA Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) is the server software that sends and queues mail. The default MTA (and !MDA) on Ubuntu is !postfix ("exim" is also officially supported). See also !MailServer and !MUA20:20
dominicdinadaoh just the system mail20:20
RoyKpostfix? exim? sendmail?20:20
dominicdinadasendmail i believe is where the logs are20:20
qman__yeah, ubuntu doesn't have a local mta installed by default, you have to pick one20:20
RoyKdominicdinada: try postfix20:21
dominicdinadaok ?20:21
RoyKbest mta there is imho20:21
qman__I won't disagree20:21
dominicdinadait is in the postfix mail20:22
dominicdinadahow to flush such high msgs crashes browser tab lol20:22
RoyKif so, 'postfix flush' will flush the queue20:22
RoyK# postfix flush20:22
RoyKbut with 20k emails in the queue, something is probably quite bad20:23
dominicdinadaRoyK: No it is just how ebox set things to notify... running the flush did nothinh20:24
dominicdinadanothing* even20:24
RoyKcan you pastebin parts of mailq output?20:24
RoyK# mailq20:24
dominicdinadaeach crontab, logged to a user20:24
dominicdinadais empty20:24
dominicdinadais not under this username20:25
RoyKif mailq is empty, the postfix mail queue is empty20:25

silentwater77fresh ubuntu 10.04 minimal has in daemon log:    init: cron main process (87) killed by TERM signal. is this normal ?20:26
RoyKdominicdinada: change the email address or add a ~/.forward file in which you set the email address to where the email is to be forwarded20:26
RoyKsilentwater77: not really - check dmesg - perhaps something bad, like an OOM happened20:27
qman__silentwater77, all that means is init killed cron at some point in time20:27
dominicdinadab rb looking into it20:27
RoyKqman__: should init kill cron?20:27
qman__when shutting down, shouldn't it?20:28
RoyKwell, yes :)20:28
silentwater77dmesg is empty...i rebooted20:28
RoyKsilentwater77: was this kill in conjunction with a reboot?20:28
silentwater77yes, message cam just before reboot20:29
qman__now, if init killed cron when you weren't shutting down, then something's messed up20:29
* RoyK hands qman__ a beer20:30
silentwater77if i get u right its normal right before shutting down20:30
qman__yes, by TERM, at shutdown, is normal20:31
silentwater77thanks, i wondered because i had trouble with packages (mountall, upstart) beeing on hold right after install20:31
RoyKsilentwater77: before a shutdown, all processes are killed, first an attempt is made with SIGTERM and then they are forcibly killed with SIGKILL20:31
silentwater77ah, i understand, thanks20:33
silentwater77but i guess its not normal that 2 packages are on hold (mountall, upstart) right after fresh install on a openvz vps20:35
qman__probably not20:36
qman__but I've never done a minimal install20:36
silentwater77im asking because now mysql wont start automatically after reboot20:36
RoyKsilentwater77: Can you try with the standard server install?20:36
silentwater77standart server is available but not offcial supported by my provider20:38
RoyKsilentwater77: eh - they support the minimal, but not standard??20:38
RoyKsilentwater77: sounds very strange to me, since the standard install is the most commonly used, and disk space required isn't really a lot20:39
silentwater77yes, they make their on localized template based on ubuntu minimal....20:39
RoyKtheir own?20:40
dominicdinadaok how to delete mail from a system account?20:41
RoyKimho it would be better if they released the translations instead of keeping them local.....20:41
RoyKdominicdinada: /var/mail20:41
silentwater77yes, they have someone who is the "template master". he is in charge for building the templates20:41
silentwater77i could install all openvz wiki templates like : "ubuntu-10.04-lamp_10.04_i386"20:41
silentwater77maybe i better go for that20:41
silentwater77lamp is what i need20:42

dominicdinadaif i just del the file that will mess things up right20:43
silentwater77i just installed the official ubuntu minimal and ran into the same mountall, upstart issue20:45
RoyKdominicdinada: yes, but check first - there's probably fixes to be made in cron etc to stop those emails20:45
RoyKsilentwater77: which version?20:45
dominicdinadaRoyK: those mail are fine but not the ebox i was wrong there is 29,000 cron mails for ebox events :O20:46
silentwater7710.04 minimal i338620:46
dominicdinadacant narrow it and del in smaller sets20:46
RoyKdominicdinada: can't you just install standard server?20:47
dominicdinadaRoyK:  plz stop answerin g questions with more questions i am trying to clean this mail this moment20:47
RoyKdominicdinada: that was for silentwater7720:48
RoyKsilentwater77: can't you just install standard server?20:48
dominicdinadai have dovecot but i am trying to cleasn 29k system mails20:48
silentwater77no i cant. i have to choose a template for openvz vps20:49
silentwater77something to choose of : http://wiki.openvz.org/Download/template/precreated20:49
RoyKsilentwater77: I guess you'll have to ask your ISP, then20:50
RoyKsilentwater77: if they support it, they should know20:50
silentwater77i give it a try with ubuntu-10.04-lamp_10.04_i38620:51

jeiworthhmm strange, do i have to change anything in a config file to connect to qemu/libvirt on a remoite machine with virt-manager?21:27
RoyKjeiworth: iirc qemu only listens to localhost21:36
RoyKby default, that is21:37
jeiworthhmmm well i found an entry in /etc/libvirt/libvirt.conf: listen_address that was commented out, i set it to the ip of the server but its running some producition systems so i can't restart the service...21:37
RoyKcan't you just start virt-manager on the host?21:39
RoyKssh X forwarding and so on21:40
incognitoI am running a server on an hp d530S. It won't boot. I researched the problem and I believe that I need to change a parameter to FRAMEBUFFER=y in my /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash file, but the file is not in the directory. What should I do?21:41
incognitoCan I copy the file from a desktop instance?21:41
RoyKincognito: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FrameBuffer21:43
jeiworth<RoyK> can't you just start virt-manager on the host? <-- yeah, no problem there21:54
jeiworthbut i dont think you need x forwarding21:54
jeiworthor you mean starting virt-manager through an existing ssh connection?21:55
incognitoRoyK: It looks like I need to disable the frame buffer by uncommenting the following line: # defoptions=quiet nosplash nofb in menu.lst and then update grub. Am I correct?21:56
