eagles0513875_greppy: quick alternate question im in the process of setting up a  new mail server, my question becomes i have another mx entry pointing at a different provider and a new mx entry pointing at another server. how will the email know which mx entry to use will it check the one with the highest priority first then if it doesnt find the account there check the other one?08:27
greppymail should go to the lowest numbered mx record first, not all senders honor that though.08:30
greppyif you do a 'dig -t mx grephead.com' you will see that mail.grephead.com has a priority of 0 and backup.grephead.com has a priority of 10, backup tries to deliver to mail.grephead.com08:31
ikoniait only uses the higher priority one if the lower prirority one doesn't respond08:31

toordogis there any easy solution for central authentication with Ubuntu like the project FreeIPA for RedHat?16:54
toordogor something like spacewalk?16:54
awatermaCheck out the CAS project. It's HTTP based.16:56
Toordogthanks for the link, I will investigate it.   :)17:00
awatermaYou can tie it into normal authentication on a unix box (PAM, etc.) or via JDBC, LDAP, etc. Nice solution. Developed for Universities.17:01
Toordogthe website is just unclear if it is just a SSO or it's good to centralize the authentication of my server park17:01
Toordogok that answer my worry :)17:01
Toordogit should work just fine then17:01
awatermaIf you're doing in Unix work, I think you'd want to do something with PAM.17:01
Toordogyes actually i have about 400 servers with ubuntu 10.x and 12.x17:02
awatermaOr Radius or possibly something like that. :)17:02
awatermaHave you looked at the MAAS implementation?17:02
ToordogI tried to build from scratch a ldap server but it was quite a headache17:02
Toordogi'm considering to implement MAAS and JUJU for deployment infrastructure17:02
awatermaOur server is too wimpy, so I moved to basic KVM for what I'm up to. :)17:03
Toordogwe are adding 30 servers per month in average and often it comes by batch every 2-3 month of 100-200 servers17:03
awatermaI'm just looking at single numbers of boxes down here. That's a huge amount to me. :)17:04
Toordogwell automated, it's like managing <10 servers17:04
awatermaHey all, it was suggested to me to look at using bonding to take advantage of my 4 nics on a box that's serving as a server for several vms, which I'd like to have running under two bridges. One bridge for static DMZ traffic, the other for internal. Is this possible?17:05
awatermatoordog: nice!17:05
Toordogawaterma:  yes it is possible but you need to have your switch to support the aggregation protocol you'll be using17:06
Toordogbasically you will create 2 aggregate link interface (LAG1 and LAG2)17:07
Toordogcan be separate switch or same switch, you could as well do your seggregation using VLAN and having only one LAG17:07
awatermaHmm. Here's my current problem, I have one nic up in "manual" mode supporting a bridge. This works nicely. When I bring up the other nic, the static connection goes down. I think this is due to using two separate gateways.17:07
awatermaDoes that sound like the right analysis?17:07
Toordogyou cannot use 2 gateway17:08
awatermaAnd I have read a little that I could do this with a vlan, but it gets a bit confusing. :)17:08
Toordoggateway = default route when there is no other route defined.17:08
awatermaSo, the analysis is right?17:08
ToordogVLAN is just like a virtual network17:08
Toordogon the same hardware17:09
awatermaAm I mis-using gateway? I thought this was part of the interface configuration, e.g. computer where traffic is directed.17:09
Toordogin a computer you have static route , you can see it via netstat -rn17:09
Toordogyour static route tell your computer where to send traffic17:09
Toordogwhen it doesn't find a static route, it will send it to the gateway17:09
awatermaCan I even do what's been requested on the same box? E.g. host virtual servers that server DMZ traffic. And host servers that server internal traffic?17:10
Toordogyou would have to explain me exactly waht is your DMZ traffic and Internal ...17:10
Toordogdo you want all VM on the internal network segment to see each other?17:10
awatermaNot necessarily. Just be available from outside, e.g. Lamp servers for different departments.17:11
awaterma(I'm at a University)17:11
ToordogDMZ = Internet with public IP?17:11
awatermaSo some lamps serving external public http traffic, others serving internal traffic. that's what's desired.17:11
awatermaI don't want to bridge the two nics.17:12
Toordogbut is your DMZ with public IP?17:12
awatermaYeah, that's the idea.17:12
ToordogIs your VM under your management or under the management of random people or untrusty people?17:12
awatermaTwo different routers. One router for one set of nics. Other for nics internal. I'm running the box.17:13
awatermaI think what happens now, is I bring up the other nic, and I run into this gateway issue. I don't want to bridge all the nics, as that would open the internal net to the outside. I want to use one bridge for external (public) nics and VMS, another for internal. This was why bonding was suggested to me.17:14
awatermaAm I hoping for too much on one box?17:15
Toordogno actually this is pretty basic17:15
Toordogon your internal network why do you need a gateway?17:16
awatermaI'm not sure I do. What's happening is that when I bring up the internal network (as a bridge, which is what I want, or as just a simple network connection) the external network becomes unreachable.17:17
Toordogjust make sure your gateway is on the DMZ side17:17
Toordogroute add default gw 10.x.x.x via eth017:17
awatermaI thought that the gateway issue was connected to the gateway that each cards is using, the static bridge is configured to pass through to one gateway, the other interface is DHCP.17:17
ToordogDHCP can setup gateway for you and overwrite your static one17:18
Toordogso better not use DHCP on a server17:18
awatermaAh, so add the route command before bringing up a the DHCP gateway?17:18
awatermaAh, okay, that makes sense now.17:18
Toordogyou can only have one gateway17:19
awatermaSo I could do this at the /etc/networks/interface level?17:19
awatermaE.g. setup a static for a 10.x.x. or 192.x.x.x that uses an actual external gateway?17:19
awatermaIn the definition?17:19
Toordogthe thing about your internal network is that you might have let say : /24 and and and you need to set a gateway to reach the other network17:20
Toordogyou would have17:20
Toordogeth0 static IP public with gateway17:20
Toordogeth1 static IP *NO GATEWAY*17:20
Toordogeth2 static IP *NO GATEWAY*17:20
Toordogonly one can have static IP17:20
awatermaAh, okay. And then when the other interfaces come up, they inherit the gateway defined in eth0?17:21
Toordogonly one can have gateway17:21
awaterma(Sorry, I'm a coder, not a network guy.) :)17:21
Toordogrouting is not per interface17:21
Toordogit is per machine wide17:21
awatermaAh, okay, so the DHCP server is rewriting the route table which is what knocks out my access.17:22
Toordogthe only thing that is per interface in routing is the path to reach the location.  Let say : reach via eth1  and reach via eth317:22
Toordogbut it is per machine wide view since you can only reach one network node per one interface at a time *normally, there is advance option to even bypass that*17:23
ToordogDHCP is evil if it is not configured correctly17:23
Toordogit thinks it knows better than you17:23
awatermaSo, all I have to do is update my /etc/network/interfaces file to define statics and only use the keyword "gateway" in my "eth0" definition? Or would I need to right a "ifup" script to define the route as something like "route add default gw 10.x.x.x via eth0" as well?17:24
awaterma(Sorry for all the questions, this has been troubling me for a couple days).17:25
zasternDo deamon starts go through pam with ubuntu/upstart?17:28
zasternE.g. does /etc/security/limits.conf affect things, like where domain is a user like www-data17:28
Toordogawaterma:  set your eth0 with gateway, no need of ifup script17:28
Toordogunless your eth0 is not always up17:29
Toordogwhich is unlikely17:29
awatermaToordog: Cool! Thanks! Off to the lab!17:29
sarnoldzastern: Idon' think so; there's no /etc/pam.d/apache or /etc/pam.d/nginx or similar..17:29
zasternsarnold: yes, but the daemon runs as a user17:32
zasternand im setting the domain to be that user17:32
zasterne.g. www-data17:32
zasternin /etc/security/limits.conf17:32
sarnoldzastern: yeah, I think the limits for most daemons have to be set via the daemon's configuration or just before the daemon is started17:33
zasternsarnold: that seems to violate the principle of system level security though. E.g. no process or user may have more than 8000 open file handles17:34
zasternor whatever.17:34
ToordogCAS project doesn't have an IRC room?17:35
sarnoldzastern: it's definitely an annoyance that it can't be configured in one location..17:35
zasternsarnold: I don't think there's a specific apache configuration item for this though, for example17:35
zasternand apache docs mention tuning limits.conf specifically17:35
zasternbut otoh that might just be a thing on EL-based systems17:36
zasternsarnold: hey and while you're here, what's your favorite AppArmor tutorial :D17:37
sarnoldzastern: hrm, there's no _great_ apparmor tutorial :( the wiki has two, "Creating and modifying AppArmor policy with the tools" and "Creating and modifying AppArmor policy by hand" that together should be tolerable :)17:41
zasterncool, thanks.17:42
sarnoldzastern: .. not all the tools work with the newest features, so knowing how to do things by hand is important17:42
zasternI need to secure my apaches.17:42
sarnoldzastern: http://wiki.apparmor.net/index.php/Documentation17:42
sarnoldzastern: but the tools, when they work, are a good time saver :)17:42
zasternsarnold: yeah, I'm not looking for a wizard. But something more directed than just "read all the documentaiton that exists, line by line"17:42
sarnoldzastern: apache is a bit complicated because there's two ways to confine it: either as a single apparmor profile (simple) or use the libapache2-mod-apparmor package and confine different portions of your site with different permissions (hooray for keeping phpbb away from your other code..)17:44
zasternsarnold: yeah . . . I was planning to use the latter, because I think different sites might have different requirements17:44
sarnoldzastern: you can also set the rlimits for a program in apparmor policy; it's not a perfect fit, since it is setting the usual rlimits rather than per-profile limits, but it is simple :)17:46
zasternI don't know what that means, but I'll look it up!17:46

Chriyssorry bro but you have no way to copy or paste something in it. You can only read what is inside. Contact the root if he can add you permission or you are the root retrieve your root password20:01

jeeves_mosshow do I import the e-mails that I was able to save from the maildir of my dovecot server directly into Thunderbird so I can move them to my new host?23:07
sarnoldjeeves_moss: you may need to use a tool such as https://github.com/tdb/maildirarc23:09
jeeves_mosssarnold, thanks, I'll have a quick look23:10
jeeves_mosssarnold, basically, the folder is from a long dead server, and this is the last mailbox that I can't pull back from the dead from backups23:11
jeeves_mosssarnold, are you still here?  I'm getting an error when I rin that program  "BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./maildirarc line 45."23:24
sarnoldjeeves_moss: ah, nuts :) that's the danger of recommending software one's never tried...23:24
jeeves_mosssarnold, lol.  well, I don't know what to say.  this thing is kind of pissing me off.23:25
sarnoldjeeves_moss: try: sudo apt-get install libemail-address-perl23:25
sarnoldthat should install the Email::Address module that is referenced on line 4523:26
jeeves_mosssarnold, thanks23:26
jeeves_mosssarnold, if I'm reading the howto correct, there is no way to batch the entire directory23:29
sarnoldjeeves_moss: it might just take some shell scripting; something like (untested :) for m in * ; do maildirarch -d0 -m /path/to/mboxes/${m} -c -F -n $m ; done    -- if that looks right, remove the -n ..23:32
jeeves_mosssarnold, ok.  thanks again for your help.  the wife is calling so I need to leave this for now.23:33
