grendal-primei need a quick and dirty radius server05:00
twbgrendal-prime: what for05:03
grendal-primeI need to create some accounting radius packets send them to a server..then send a stop packet05:04
grendal-primedoesnt need authentication..05:05
grendal-primejust accounting05:05
twbWhat kind of server is speaking radius instead of sasl or pam?05:05
grendal-primei have to write those two scripts. A vpn server needs to send this info to an appliance that uses radius.05:06
grendal-primeI think most isps use radius.05:06
twbWhat, for dialup?05:07
grendal-primeNo dude...radius has been adapted for all connection mediums ..has been for some time05:07
twbMaybe if you like gooey insides05:08
twbNever mind.05:08
grendal-primehow do YOU connect to the internet05:08
grendal-primecause i can tell you this much..comcast uses it.05:08
grendal-primecablevision ..time warner..they all use radius05:09
grendal-primebut i digress05:09
twbI have an ATM service over copper, called "ADSL2+".  Over that run a stupid PPPoA tunnel that exists purely for the ISP's billing purposes.05:09
grendal-primeIve just never set up a  radius server.  Ya that billing business  thats radius.05:10
grendal-primebut anyway05:10
twbThe only time I had to deal with radius myself, was for stupid 802.11 "enterprise", and for that I used the fake one built into hostapd05:10
twbEverything I could find about radius indicated it was an old and stupid alternative to SASL or PAM, and that if you used any method but EAP-TLS you were very very stupid indeed.05:11
twbSince I am not authenticating to my ISP with a client-side TLS cert, it's implied that they're in the "very very stupid" category...05:11
twbPersonally I would prefer they just peg my ISP account to the PSTN service it's currently running on, and not have the PPP overhead of 7% or whatever it is05:12

tohuwHow can I make a script that will run each time I login to an Ubuntu server? I only want it to run at logon, and only when I am interacting with the session (as the script prompts for input)05:41
greppytohuw: call the script at the end of your .bashrc ( or other shell env scripts )05:42
twbtohuw: write a cron job that runs @reboot05:43
twbtohuw: write an upstart job05:43
twbOh sorry at *login time*05:43

twbgrendal-prime: which one05:47
grendal-primeit really doesnt matter they are all based on cistron05:47
grendal-primei used xtradius because it seems to just use the default files and doesnt really expect you to connect a db.05:48
grendal-primebut it seems like freeradius does the same thing really i dont know..all i know is i can creat a user and authenticate so..i should be able to do accounting only.05:49

tohuwtwb: I added the command to my bashrc, but now each time I create a new window in tmux, it executes those commands. Is there a way to prevent this?06:00
twbUse .bash_profile instead.06:01
tohuwtwb: Oh. That was too easy. Thanks06:02
andolOr ~/.profile, if you already have one, which seems to be the Ubuntu default.06:02
andolCreating a ~/.bash_profile would lead to an existing ~/.profile not being read.06:02
tohuwandol: Ah, thank you! I do indeed have a .profile, and now I see how .profile and .bashrc are different. :) Thanks06:03
twbandol: oh, thanks.  I thought .bash_profile was the default06:04
twbthat is, I thought Ubuntu defaulted to providing a .bash_profile in /etc/skel06:04
tohuwtwb: My /etc/skel on Ubuntu Server 12.04 has not been altered, and contains only .profile, no .bash_profile06:08

codeshepherdwhat is the free ubuntu 12.04 AMI in ec2? what is the AMI - id ?07:10
smbcodeshepherd, You can find daily builds here (http://uec-images.ubuntu.com/precise/current/).07:24
codeshepherdsmb: is it better to use the latest build or should I use the AMI that the aws market place suggests?  - in other words - will the daily build have unexpected bugs?07:28
smbcodeshepherd, Not sure what exactly the market place suggests. But I suspect that it would be the released version. While the daily, despite all efforts to prevent that, can have regressions, the released version for sure has known bugs the more time there is between release and "now".07:30
codeshepherdthanks smb07:31
smbYou could as an alternative take the released version but then I'd at least update all security relevant changes07:31

Thornhow do I setup a full remote backup of an ubuntu server using rsnapshot? it appears that I need to grant root privileges to the user that rsnapshot connects with over ssh08:01
twbThorn: that is correct08:07
twbUnless you want to run rsync without ssh, which would be very stupid08:08
Thornthat still sounds like a security risk08:08
twbThorn: well it's going to have a copy of all the data the target machine had anyway08:08
twbSo if the rsnapshot host is compromised you're mostly screwed anyway08:09
twbAnyway, what you CAN do is passphraseless SSH key + /usr/share/doc/rsync/examples/rrsync.gz in the forced command08:09
Thornin this case it's the rsnapshot host that will keep backups of a VPS (which is obviously accessible from the net)08:13
ThornI don't think it's possible to selectively disable password auth in openssh?08:14
twbAllowRoot without-password08:14
twbBut you should not allow passwords at all in any case08:14
twbNor should the root account *have* a password08:14
ThornI mean, disable password and leave key auth08:15
twbYes, of course you can do that08:15
twbPasswordAuthentication no08:15
Thornthat would disable it for all users08:17
twbOK there are two things you might be asking for, and I have given you both.08:19
twbIf it's still not clear read sshd_config(5) and the default config file's comments08:19
Thornsorry, I didn't phrase it correctly. I was asking about disabling password auth for a particular user only08:20
Thorndoesn't appear to be possible08:20

jmedinaI like to use a iSCSI SAN with at least 6TB18:55
jmedinado you know or have experience with something like this?18:56
jmedinaany model you could recomend?18:56
freesbiejmedina: depends on your iops need and budget really :)18:59
jmedinafreesbie: actually we dont have those numbers, I want to compare features and price19:01
freesbiejmedina: iops is pretty damn important if youre gonna virtualize, unless its just storagemachines youre putting on it (which is a bit stupid) :)19:04
jmedinafreesbie: I know, I just learning how to get those numbers, I hope I can get those numbers in the next weeks19:06
jmedinafreesbie: any recomendation?, I have read a little about sysstat19:06
freesbiejmedina: you could easily build your own iscsi machine with ubuntu and use drbd to replicate to another machine. or you could go with the commercial ones, lefthand, hitachi, equallogic etc19:07
jmedinafreesbie: yeap, I already built one using ubuntu server drdb+lvm and iscsi, but this customer is a big corporation and they want something "enterprise" with commercial support19:09
jmedinaI just convince them to use KVM instead of VMWARE19:09
freesbiejmedina: depends on the utilization of your existing physical harddrives, and how much you want to pay to be able to give the same max iops or you expect 50% utilisation and so forth ..19:10
jmedinafreesbie: they are all underutilized with sata discs, it is a small site, actually 12 vms19:12
freesbieive been using hitachi and emc on fibrechannel with vmware on top earlier at the places ive worked. where im now im thinking about buying lefthand and using KVM19:13

SpamapSjamespage: probably yes. :)19:59
jamespageSpamapS, have time now?19:59
SpamapSjamespage: I'm in the middle of a conversation.. hopefully will be resolved soon.20:00
jamespageSpamapS, sure - ping me when you are done20:00

ea1hethi good night20:19
ea1hetanyone here to talk?20:19
mgwe1het: about what?20:22
ea1hetmgw: hi, thanks for answer. I would like to know.... i guess the utility of LVM for the further use of a KVM-based hypervisor20:24
ea1heti don't know if you understand...20:24
jmedinarockets: I use ossec20:32
never2farcan someone explain me why is _U and not U_ ...since the failed device is the second from the list ...or U and _ is counted alphabetically ?! ...so here are the lines from /proc/mdstat20:34
never2farmd1 : active raid1 sdb3[2] sda3[0](F)20:34

never2farwhat device is down ? maybe sdc1 ...but how can i determine this from the staus of [UUU_] ?!20:36
grendal-primeis there a way to set the exit status of a script to 0 even though its not 020:56
colon_Dexit 020:56
smw_grendal-prime, in what context?20:56
SpamapSjamespage: here now, tho time is limited. :)20:59
stgraberSpamapS: do you think you can review the lxc SRU this week? I know it has a long changelog and the diff isn't exactly short so it seems to have scared most SRU reviewers this week, but I'd really like to see it hit proposed soonish (as I already have the next batch of fixes stacking here).21:08
SpamapSstgraber: I've spent > 8 hours doing SRU's this week21:13
SpamapSstgraber: I will try to get to it.21:14
iToastCan i get help wiuth the server installer --_21:15
stgraberSpamapS: thanks and thanks again for all the work on the SRU queue this week, good to see it fit on a single page again!21:15
iToastCan I get help...21:16
iToastWho ever made the server 10.4 installer forgot people will USB boot every here and there....21:17
iToastIt wants me to mount a non existent cd-rom.21:17
iToastHow do i make it goto the usb its booted from21:17
ScottKiToast: Does it work with 12.04?21:19
=== Lcawte is now known as Lcawte|Away
iToastScottK: Thats like throwing a match into a gas tanker, no.21:20
ScottKNot really.21:22
ScottKA lot of bugs got fixed between 10.04 and 12.04.21:22
ScottKUnless there's a reason you really, really need 10.04, I'd try the newer release.21:23
freesbiescottk: new bugs have also been introduced, so maybe thats a reason to stick with the older and still supported release :)21:29
ScottKThe general trend is, IME, towards better.  Particularly in the installer.21:29
ScottKTwo years ago, booting USB was much less common than it is now, so it got a lot broader testing and more attention during 12.04 development than it would have for 10.04.21:30
ScottKI have a vague recollection of a specific bug like that which I know isn't around anymore.21:30
ea1hetcan anyone explain me the MaaS concept ??21:30
freesbiewell, ive never had any troubles booting 10.04 from usb .. only had troubles with unsupported raidcontrollers ..21:31
ScottKI can't recall what release I had it on.21:34
RoyKScottK: I never choose a x.x release for a server, better wait for x.x.1 ;) that's also the reason do-release-upgrade won't upgrade 10.04 to 12.04 until 12.04.1 ;)21:37
RoyKea1het: basically similar control over hardware as that over virtual machines21:37
ScottKRoyK: The upgrade bit has more to do with testing the LTS to LTS upgrade path than anything about new installs.21:38
ScottKI didn't upgrade my 10.04 servers yet, but if I was doing a new install, I'd do 12.04.21:38
RoyKdoesn't matter, x.x.1 is, im my experience, far better tested, which is rather logial21:38
RoyKor logical21:38
ea1hetRoyK: Maas = PaaS  ????21:39
RoyKmeaning: If I'm to install a file server or something I *need* to keep stable, I'd use 10.04 for now, and perhaps another year.21:39
* RoyK greets good night and is off for some hourzzzz21:41
ea1hetScottK: i was right there reading.. but i don't see it clear....21:41
ScottKHonestly I don't either.21:41
ihashacksMaaS: setup MaaS "master", PXE boot a bunch of physical servers which will launch Ubuntu installer, join said servers to the MaaS, those servers then shutdown and wait for the master to summon them for some kind of deployment21:44
ihashacksMaaS + Juju is a neat example of a provisioning method21:45
ihashacksinstead of "gimme a VM with foo service on it", you get, "gimme a physical server with foo service on it"21:46
ihashacksthen one of your MaaS nodes gets wake-on-lan'ed, says "yes sir" and starts setting up foo service on it21:47
ihashacksMaaS is likely useless if you're a small shop with relatively few physical servers but probably awesome if you have a large purchase of racked equipment you need to bring online in a pinch.21:52
grendal-primesoooo i have this script.  It gathers some info and then sends off a radius packet using radclient..problem is the radius server never responds (which is OK)22:21
grendal-primebut the script (its a openvpn client connect script exits with a 1 and then the opevpn server will not let the client connect.22:21
SpamapSihashacks: MaaS is also intended to be useful for the case where you have just a few servers. What about it do you think would make it inadequate for that case?22:30
SpamapSstgraber: hey are you here? I am looking at the LXC upload to precise-proposed.. only one question.23:11
SpamapSstgraber: there is one change which I can't find a bug for.. its minor, but "Make sure /etc/resolv.conf is valid before running any apt command."23:13
SpamapSahh, no actual report, I see that now in the changelog23:14
SpamapSwell it looks like somethign that would work as an SRU23:14
ihashacksSpamapS: perhaps s/useless/less usefull/23:14
ihashacksSpamapS: If MaaS is designed to provision servers in a sleeping state unti you WoL them, and you only have a couple of servers to begin with, then you have servers that only sit there until you summon them from MaaS ...23:15
ihashacks...unless I'm missing a valid use case here?23:15
SpamapSstgraber: n/m .. it all looks good. Thanks!23:16
SpamapSihashacks: thats such a tiny piece of what i does :)23:16
SpamapSs/ i / it /23:16
SpamapSihashacks: just automating that bit is useful with a few servers if you are going to test deploying something over and over.23:17
ihashacksSpamapS: touchee23:18
ihashacksSpamapS: I suppose I was thinking more post-testing, in-production - why, if you only have a few physical servers to begin with, would you have them off, waiting to be summoned by MaaS?23:18
ihashacksThat is definitely a use case I did not think about.23:18
SpamapSihashacks: well if you only EVER plan to have those few servers, why have any automation at all? :) MaaS should make it easier to grow.23:20
ihashacksperhaps I should have said, "MaaS is likely less usefull if you're a small shop with relatively few physical servers and will likely always have said limited amount of physical hardware to deploy."23:32
SpamapSihashacks: said shop is likely a boring shop to work in. ;)23:35
SpamapSunless its like, a circus.. or maybe a gun range... nothing but laughs in a gun range.23:35
txomon|homehas anyone used cobbler here?23:41
txomon|homeI am trying to add ubuntu distros to the cobbler installation, but I don't succeed in adding the netboot files (I don't want to mount/import CDs, as I have all in a mirror)23:42
