alaska13I'm having trouble with setting up a l2tp/ipsec-psk server on 11.04, client connections seem to fail in phase 2 of ipsec connection.  Any suggestions?00:03
samthemanhi guys\00:22
samthemanjust need some ideas please00:23
samthemani wanted to add more ubuntu servers to my network00:23
samthemani have monitoring and all that00:23
itswhats a good app for remote connections?00:24
samthemanany production servers you can suggest??00:24
samthemanrdesktop is a good and simple one00:24
itsi have x11vnc installed right now...00:24
samthemanuse it to remote to windows clients00:25
samthemanrdp client00:25
itswhat about mac?00:26
samthemannot sure about that one00:26
SpamapSsamtheman: you mean what hardware do we recommend?00:26
samthemannever realy tried00:26
samthemanlike apps00:26
SpamapSits: what do you mean "remote connections" ?00:26
itslike, screen sharing00:27
samthemanlike i have nagios cacti00:27
itsI want to be able to rack mount my server00:27
itsand then remote into it using another machine00:27
SpamapSits: ssh is all you need. :)00:27
samthemanyeah ssh00:27
itsyeah ssh00:27
SpamapSsamtheman: ahh, well I think servers should probably use all that electricy they have going through them to solve problems .. what problems do you need to solve?00:28
samthemani dont have any atm00:28
samthemanjust trying to implement more ubuntu in the networ00:28
samthemani was think instant messaging00:28
itsmore ubuntu? Thats odd.00:28
samthemani dont like windows00:29
samthemanim working on network load balancing00:29
samthemanbut that project is not due for ages00:29
itswell i think linux is really good00:30
samthemanhaproxy for that one ---- thats good one rite??00:30
itsim super new to ubunter server edition00:30
SpamapSsamtheman: again, thats like saying do you guys know where any nails are that I can hit with my hammer? .. more appropriate to find reasons to use nails. :)00:30
samthemando you know how i can install webgui cms00:31
samthemani thought that could be better than my knowldgetree document sharing00:32
SpamapSIf you want a CMS, Drupal is the current powerhouse there00:33
samthemanit does intranet, document sharing stuff like that??00:35
SpamapSIts a CMS, so it... manages.. content. :)00:35
patdk-lapI always perfer the ones that self-manages :)00:39
adam_gRoAkSoAx: are you still around?00:42
twb`Will someone tell me why this watershed crap is still trying to run a vgchange -ay *12 hours* after a reboot?00:47
SpamapStwb`: thats run by /lib/udev/rules.d/85-lvm2.rules on my oneiric system..00:49
SpamapStwb`: is it possible you have an intentionally not-activated pv somewhere?00:50
twb`I was going to blame that for locking my lvm layer, but apparently it's not his fault00:50
twb`root     20379  0.0  0.0  32208 15844 ?        D<Ls 08:18   0:00 lvcreate --quiet --snapshot --size 64G --name understudy /dev/omega/collectd00:51
SpamapSI don't recall exactly what sets ID_FS_TYPE .. but if its from the partition table.. maybe you have one thats marked inactive and has no defined vg00:51
twb`^^ still stuck in D state00:51
uvirtbottwb`: Error: "^" is not a valid command.00:51
twb`Stupid bot.00:51
samthemansorry what are we talking about??00:51
twb`OK, the actual problem is that "lvs" and all other LVM commands act like this: http://paste.debian.net/129695/00:52
twb`This issue arose after deploying a backup solution that works by taking an LVM snapshot of each LV in turn, fscking the snapshot, mounting it, rsync the data off, then unmounting and lvremoving it.00:52
SpamapStwb`: I've used that scheme before and its pretty effective usually (as long as your daemons stop writing while you snapshot)00:54
SpamapSor all write atomically00:54
twb`I think the problem is collectd REALLY likes writing00:55
SpamapStwb`: so the lvcreate for thes napshot just sits there forever in disk wait?00:55
twb`And I didn't realize lvsnapshot needs the system to be quiescent00:55
SpamapSyes thats true00:55
twb`10:54 <twb> Evidence: http://paste.debian.net/129696/00:55
twb`On other systems I was calling "sync & sync & wait" before each lvcreate --snapshot IIRC00:55
SpamapSI've always found the handwaving people do about collectd's every-5-seconds-write-like-its-1999 behavior to be unconvincing :)00:56
SpamapSIts not that it has to be totally quiescent00:56
twb`SpamapS: do you use collectd yourself, and if so do you know how to make it be less write-happy?00:56
twb`SpamapS: I'm thinking either crank up the buffering options and/or deploy rrcached or whatever it's called00:57
SpamapStwb`: I've only evaluated it. I found the writing too intense for most light weight servers.00:57
twb`Yeah, I'm getting completely reamed here by its default config and about 20 servers sending it stats over UDP00:57
SpamapSthe rrd caching daemon is a must00:57
twb`OK, I will make that a priority00:57
twb`(afk few minutes, talking to $boss)00:58
SpamapStwb`: I'd be curious to hear if your snapshots complete and how full they are right after they do complete. It shouldn't be as painful as you're describing, even with a tiny write every 5 seconds.00:59
twb`Let me show you an iostat01:03
twb`Hmm, that's actually not too bad01:03
twb`dm23 is /var/lib/collectd01:04
twb`I have seen that up around 6000 when everything else was more like 128.01:04

twb`SpamapS: OK explain this to me, I tried "lxc-freeze --name hugin" (the collectd container), and I also tried kill -STOP all the procs in that container, and the I/O write load is unchanged on that LV01:15
twb`OK what the shit, even after I stop the entire container and all its procs are gone, the I/O write load is still high01:17
twb`OK, *now* it's finally gone down01:20

linociscoAfter one unpropershutdown and reboot, I lost my ssh with putty to my ubuntu 10.04 LTS server. what would be the most likely problem ? If I use on server, it is fine. From terminal with ssh client is not fine04:55
linociscossh localhost is fine04:55

twb`During the upgrade -e2fsprogs 1.41.12-4 +e2fsprogs 1.42~WIP-2011-07-02-104:56
jmarsdentwb`: Aha, I was (sort of) right.  So, a package upgrade changed the mke2fs defaults to doing no checks!  That's... bad.  Although the ~WIP... numbering scheme suggests it may not have been exactly the most refined/tested/stable version of e2fsprogs ever :)05:01
twb`Maybe I got it out of experimental or something -- this is a debian sid/experimental host btw05:03
twb`nope, that's sid05:04
jmarsdenAh, OK, that would make more sense... I was wondering what version of Ubuntu would use that, since oneiric is still only at 1.41.14-1ubuntu305:04
twb`Sory about that05:05
jmarsdenlinocisco: Is the server at a static IP address?  If it uses DHCP, maybe the reboot gave it a new and different IP address?05:07
linociscojmarsden: sure05:07
linociscojmarsden: it is with static05:09
linociscojmarsden: IP05:09
jmarsdenlinocisco: OK.  So, from the server console can you ssh to its network IP (not localhost) OK?05:10
linociscojmarsden: yes. it is I can ssh to it's network ip if I ssh on server desk05:26
linociscojmarsden: the thing is it can't be ssh from other machine05:26
jmarsdenlinocisco: OK, so do you have any firewalling or packet filtering on the server?  ufw, perhaps?05:35
jmarsdenlinocisco: You can do     sudo ufw status     to check if it is turned on, and    sudo ufw disable   to turn if off if you need to.05:36
koolhead17hi all05:37
linociscojmarsden: status = inactive05:46
linociscojmarsden: what do I do ?05:46
twb`Oh lame05:47
twb`debootstrap --limit-priority avoids downloading optional/extra packages, but it still LISTS them in its Packages file05:47
jmarsdenlinocisco: That means ufw is not the issue.05:47
jmarsdenlinocisco: Basically you need to troubleshoot this as a networking issue.  Can you ping from workstation to server, and from server to workstation?05:48
linociscojmarsden: yes. it is fine vice versa05:49
jmarsdenOK.  From the workstation if you    telnet 22     (where is the IP of the server), what happens?05:50
linociscojmarsden: not ok05:53
jmarsdenlinocisco: Be specific!  What error message do you see?05:53
linociscojmarsden: I did telnet 22 from my windows XP.  no error message found. just cursor blinking and after one more keystroke. back to command prompt. I didn't see any telnet prompt or login prompt05:55
linociscojmarsden: i have rebooted server 3 times.05:55
jmarsdenlinocisco: I need to go away from the computer soon... Windows telnet should (I think) either show you a connect message and the SSH version number in the banner, or it should (after a minute or so) give yu an error message.  So I am not sure what the issue is.05:58
jmarsdenlinocisco: wait... you did change the into the real local IP of your server, right?05:59
linociscojmarsden: what do you mean ?05:59
jmarsdenInstead of use the actual local IP address of your server.05:59
linociscojmarsden:  on server, I tried both ssh localhost and ssh server-ip . not ok.06:00
linociscojmarsden: then again from client XP, i tried telnet server IP 22 . not ok06:00
linociscojmarsden: i didn't change server 's IP06:00
jmarsdenOK.  I don't know what the issue is.  I need to go; hopefully someone else can help you some more.06:00

sms_I can't ftp into my server while logged out, (Response:331 Please specify the password. Command:PASS ******** Error:Connection timed out, is as far as it goes) And rtorrent keeps seeding, but halts downloading in a detached screen session if I log out. What could this be?07:50
SpamapSsms_: possibly some kind of restriction in your pam rules.07:52
sms_What are pam rules?07:53
SpamapSheh.. not something you probably tweaked on your own07:54
sms_I installed rtorrent, then noticed it won't keep downloading, and then I couldn't ftp into it either. If I'm logged in locally/via ssh everything works07:55

sms_The harddrive is connected via a sata pci card, if that could mean something08:00

ersiYou probably have some magic which locks your home directory when you log out then.08:17
sms_I hate magic :-/08:18
ersiIt's not magic08:19
sms_Maybe I'll reinstall without encryption, I haven't gotten much configured yet08:23
ersiOr you could spend some time to unroll this and learn a little in the progress, if you got time (Meant in the most sincere way, realized it might sound snotty)08:24
sms_No I have time :), just that I'm completely lost08:25
_GoRDoN_sms_: Are you using full disc encryption or Ubuntus home-dir encryption? I also had some problems with home-dir encryption so I switched to full disc encryption.08:33
sms_home encryption08:34
_GoRDoN_sms_: Check your processor usage when you add a new torrent. I think the problem is that rtorrent tries to allocate new space for torrents and that takes too long so it fails.08:37
_GoRDoN_sms_: But there is no problems with full disc encryption08:38
sms_hmm ok08:39
_GoRDoN_sms_: And you can test if the encryption is problem by running rtorrent from /tmp, that should work without problems08:39

ersikoolhead11: Uh, there's no field for date in /etc/lsb-release09:05
koolhead11ersi: indeed09:06
ersiOr do you mean that alpha/beta should preferebly be in DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION?09:06

koolhead11ersi: yeah it should be there with the date of built :P09:06
DavieyOnce the archive has changed from what is on the released ISO, it's no longer THE alpha or beta.09:06

linociscohi . i have WDmybookworld  NAS. I want to console log in to this. I dont want to reset. Do I know how I can know it's IP without knowing its IP range ?09:21
ersilenios_: You could check the manual. Or do a broadcast ping. There's several methods. If you can log onto your router/switch, you could check the ARP tables/ports09:26
sbeattiekoolhead11: the date + nearby milestone is all that there is for daily snapshots (it will include a respin revision if such things happen); what are you looking for or are trying to solve?09:28

hallynhggdh: 'should not need to' where need is defined by special cases doesn't really help to prioritize :)13:02
hggdhhallyn: out default install does not run libvirt as root. Having to do so is a deviation13:03
hallynIOW, the behavior you want can be argued either way.  So my question was whether the workaround does in fact cause you different problems13:03
hggdhhallyn: no problems, except running libvirt as root. I am personally confortable there, this is *my* machine13:04
hallynhggdh: I honestly believe that having the user provide an iso which is specific for the VM makes more sense, than designing libvirt to handle isos being overwritten by a mirror13:04

hallynbut if the workaround caused problems, then it would be worth it13:05
hallynHowever, it appears I really dropped the ball by neither marking the bug wontfix, nor forwarding the bug to upstream13:05
hggdhhallyn: OK. It is a question of usage and of interpretation. I accept it, and I have a workaround. I am cool, no matter what you decide13:05
hallynhggdh: cool, thanks - so i'll fwd it upstream, but if they don't take it, then i'll mark it wontfix rather than patch in ubuntu.13:07

smosercr3, "access token" == "ec2 credentials" ?15:20
jamespagecloud-publish-image is reluctant todo it at the moment - "arch must be i386 or x86_64"15:20
smoserfor ec2 credentials you most certainly should use 'iam' , and create some credentials that can only do what you want.15:20
Davieysmoser: for ec2 creds, or aws creds? :)15:21
cr3smoser: not ec2 credentials, just credentials specific to the application being deployed so that it can connect to launchpad without prompting for openid and oauth credentials15:22
RoAkSoAxis anyone free to try a PXE boot atm?15:22
RoAkSoAxI'm getting an endless loop15:22
smoserthen, i would probably seed those (and your launchpad credentials) into the instance via '#include-once' that lynxman wrote.15:22
lynxmansmoser: \o/15:23
cr3smoser: is #include-once supported in lucid running on the instance where I'm deploying?15:23
smoserjamespage, you want to open a quick bug ? and we can get it fixed.15:23
smoserinclude-once is not supported by lucid. :-(15:24
jamespagesmoser: sure15:24
smosercr3, so i would recommend doing some one-time url (or expiring) and maybe that would work with lucid...15:24
smoseri'm wondering what would happen on subsequent boots.15:24
Davieyjamespage: Yeah, i edited mine in-place15:24
smoserif that url is still there to be #included, but just with other data (not the secret from the first time) it would probably be OK.15:25
smoserjamespage, so euca-bundle-image wont complain about arch as arm ?15:27
cr3smoser: not sure how that would work: I could probably commit the url pointing to my credentials but couldn't people then access that url?15:27
smosercr3, yes. so you need a one time use or expiring url15:27
smoserand you pass it a url like myhost.com/<some long secret here>15:27
smoseryou can use s3 expiring urls.15:28
jamespagesmoser: might do - Daviey might know the answer (I have not "fixed" mine locally"15:28
smoserlet it live for 10 minutes15:28

drbobbat the end of installation, boom: error installing grub20:58
drbobbunbootable system20:58
drbobbnothing works20:59
aarcanedrbobb, you should probably try with a GPT partition table and make sure there's a bios-grub partition.  it sounds like grub probably couldn't install due to a bad partitioning scheme.  and yes, you can use LVM atop gpt seamlessly.20:59
=== almaisan-away is now known as al-maisan
drbobbyes after poking around a little I discovered the installer had used GPT on the drive20:59
drbobband this definitely did not work, seamlessly or at all for that matter21:00
drbobbhow do I make a bios-grub partition? the installer offered no such option21:01
drbobband I definitely suspect that if I want to dual-boot windows, I should stay away from GPT21:02
aarcanedual boot windows works from gpt on 64 bit for both vista and 7.21:03
drbobbwell for the moment booting ubuntu doesnt work for me, how do I fix that?21:03
aarcanealso: you use gparted or parted from the installer.  the server installer excludes parted for some reason, as well as apt-get, so you need to use the desktop installer to partition your disks prior to installing ubuntu server.21:04
drbobbactually I worked around it by using grub-install --force, but I got some dire warnings21:04
aarcanecan you pastebin your dire warnings?21:04
drbobbaarcane: I don't understand you21:05
drbobbI was definitely able to partition the drive in the server installer21:05
drbobbparted sees nothing wrong with those partitions21:05
aarcanedrbobb, parted and gparted are utilities that give you detailed control over partitioning and allow you to manually inspect your partitions and ensure that a bios-grub partition exists.21:05
drbobbaarcane: I can't pastebin, the said pc is half-installed and in my office, and I'm at home21:06
drbobbbut it said something about blocklists21:06
aarcanedrbobb, these utilities are erroneously absent from the ubuntu server install, so you must use the desktop install to access them if you don't have access to a working environment.21:07
drbobbaarcane: I booted the server cd in rescue mode, and was able to access parted in that environment21:07
aarcanedrbobb, alright then.  create a small partition at the beginning of the GPT volume and set the bios-grub flag and the boot flag.21:08
drbobbI mean when chrooted to the server root fs21:08
aarcaneerm..  that might not work then.21:08
drbobbdamn, why isn't that documented anywhere?21:08
drbobbI lost like 2 hours trying to figure this crap out21:09
aarcanedrbobb, I don't know.  Most people don't use GPT partitions though, so it's uncommon.21:09
drbobbbut I never asked for GPT, the installer applied it silently21:09
drbobbI guess I need to start over then, a couple of hours more down the drain21:10
aarcaneit's not that bad.  now that you know what you're doing it'll go faster.21:10
drbobbbut how do I ensure that the installer won't use GPT?21:11
aarcaneon a 2TB drive you want (might need, must fact check) GPT partitions.21:11
drbobbI guess I should start by partitioning from a rescue environment21:11
aarcanejust use the ubuntu desktop live cd.  it's very simple to use and provides gparted which will let you properly configure the bios-grub partition.21:12
aarcaneonly create the one partition, let the installer handle the rest of the procedure.  the bios-grub partition should be small (8MB should be enough) with the flags bios-grub and boot enabled near the beginning of the drive.21:13
drbobbbut the desktop installer won't let me configure LVM iirc21:14
drbobbthis doesn't make any sense to me, I go through the installer with no error or warning even, and end up with an unbootable system21:21
warzauwynndrbobb: what hardware and what software version?21:22

drbobba pc like a pc you get from a pc store21:23
warzauwynnlike an asus motherboard?21:24
drbobbyeah might be an asus, can't check right now21:24
warzauwynnasus makes EFI motherboards.21:24
drbobbthere is no EFI on that PC21:24
drbobbnothing remotely resembling EFI21:25
warzauwynnare you sure your install media burned correctly?21:25
drbobba 2TB SATA drive, seagate or something21:25
warzauwynni've done installs where the install media silently corrupted during burn, and i beat my head for hours over it.21:25
warzauwynnactually more than once, which is why i try not to use CDs anymore...21:26
drbobbI seriously doubt that is the issue21:26
warzauwynn64 or 32 bit OS?21:27

adam_gRoAkSoAx:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/688646/21:32
adam_gRoAkSoAx: cloud-init wont consume the hostname and domain name from there, will it? and it will consider no hostname from metadata, and update /etc/hosts with localdomain21:32
RoAkSoAxadam_g: that's the issue I found and we agreed with smoser that cloud-init should probably respect that21:34
RoAkSoAxadam_g: and tht's why he did the change on cloud-init and that's why hostname is setting correctly21:34
RoAkSoAxadam_g: because it used to set itself to ubuntuhost21:34
RoAkSoAxadam_g: so I think he'll probably have to do the same he did for hostname, for domain21:34
adam_gRoAkSoAx: so cloud-init was modified recently to look for hostname in the kernel paramters?21:37
RoAkSoAxadam_g: smoser what did you do to make cloud-init not set the hostname to ubuntuhost?21:37
RoAkSoAxsmoser: remember we discussed that few days ago, because it was changing what was provided in the kernel parameters21:37
drbobbIs the use of LVM what's causing my install to fail? or is it something else?21:42
warzauwynndrbobb: which partitioning method did you use?21:42
RoAkSoAxadam_g: we just need to make sure that cloud-init is not overwriting that, and that --hostname when adding a system is set21:43
drbobbI was never aware that GPT would be used on the drive21:43
RoAkSoAxadam_g: and that should be enough to set the hostname21:43
warzauwynndrbobb: did you create a reserved bios boot area?21:43
drbobband I have no idea of its (in)compatibilities or requirements21:43
warzauwynndrbobb: i'm playing with it now, it looks like gpt is the default and you need a 1mb reserved bios boot area at the beginning of the disk.21:44
drbobbthere is not a single mention of that in the ubuntu install guide21:44
drbobbthere is no warning in the installer, wither21:44
drbobbto me that is seriously broken21:45
warzauwynndrbobb: incidentally, i can't find any mention of either MBR or GPT.21:47
warzauwynnhowever, the automatic installer does create a GPT with the necessary BIOS boot area.21:47
crasshallyn: thanks for looking at this again. I think my problem is more common than hggdh's, though philosophically we're on the same page.21:48
drbobbok, so the solution would be to create this boot area with parted, and re-apply grub install?21:49
drbobbgood, I'll give that a try21:49
crasshallyn: I just have an iso that will never be updated or sync'd to some mirror, but that was downloaded by the user and so is owned by the user and her default group21:49
crasshallyn: I don't think that running libvirt as root is a good solution, for security reasons, and there's no reason why libvirt shouldn't be able to read the iso if there's world read perms set on it. I'm not sure why it should ever try to change the ownership for any RO media.21:51
warzauwynndrbobb: you may want to play with it in a virtual environment where things go quicker and non-destructive.21:51
drbobbwarzauwynn: I don't really need to, the PC is pristine and there is no data to lose21:54
drbobbI just don't have the time to redo the install over and over21:55
warzauwynnyeah, i know what you mean. =/21:55
drbobbI must say I'm very disappointed with how the ubuntu installer behaves wrt this, though21:56
hallyncrass: just updated the bug with a link to my email to upstream.  we'll see waht they say21:59
XpticalI just installed Cherokee and I'd like some advice on how to manage my directories.  Should I move /var/www to /home/user/www?  Or should I give that user a symlink and permissions to /var/www?22:02
XpticalSo that a user can FTP to his virtual host?22:02
