shodan45I just installed 12.04.02 on brand new hardware that has UEFI. I used custom partitioning (always do), and it doesn't boot. Now I see that I need a UEFI partition?00:41
sarnoldshodan45: iirc, you need something like 100 megabyte FAT partition right up front00:42
shodan45right, that's what I'm reading now.... but is that absolutely needed?00:42
shodan45it's the only OS on the box00:42
sarnoldi think it is, unless you can convince your bios to boot in a compatibility mode00:43
shodan45hmm, I think I could do that, but I'd rather figure out UEFI00:44
sarnoldif you've got the time, that sounds like a good idea00:44
sarnoldit's not going away, anyway :)00:44
SpamapSScottK: re "abandoning servers" .. Thats not just Canonical. The entire industry is changing.00:48
SpamapSScottK: and its not just giant IT shops. Small shops, < 20 server shops, are finding it useful to have a self service "cloud" rather than angry gray beards watching over all the resources.00:49
SpamapSScottK: But really, Canonical is following the money. If there was money in SMB servers, they'd be there.00:50

ScottKSpamapS: sure, but the stuff on the metal has to work for the cloud to be viable, so it's in many cases a false, short sighted choice to assume that basic infrastructure will continue to support the cloud stuff even though it's ignored.  That'll be true for awhile, but not forever.03:06

WomkesIs it possible to bind the ports needed for NFS server to fixed number? I cannot firewall my setup. There is nothing about this in the community wiki article16:51
sarnoldWomkes: hrm, I thought in practice 2049 was used nearly exclusively?16:54
WomkesWell there are two fixed ports16:55
Womkes111 and 204916:55
Womkesthen there are a few ports that are assigned randomly16:55
Womkesfor nlockmgr and mountd16:55
Womkesthese I need to fix so I can firewall them16:55
WomkesI could also whitelist the source IP16:56

baniira file was deleted from one of our servers via a 3rd party ftp program. the file appears to be gone, but the disk usage doesn't reflect this. is there anything i can do to trigger a refresh without rebooting the server, or some other thing to consider20:06
sarnoldbaniir: check ls -l /proc/*/fd/* -- perhaps a process still has the file open20:09
sarnoldbaniir: if the file had multiple hard links, perhaps only one link has been removed20:09
baniirsarnold: yep, thanks; just ran lsof | grep deleted and found my file. it appears several times. do you know how to close these properly20:10
sarnoldbaniir: well... your programs may be leaking file descriptors, in which case this problem should be fixed. but if they legitimately have it open and you just want the disk space back, you could kill the process. when the last process holding it open dies, the disk space will be reaped20:11
baniirsarnold: you mean the program that was used to open the file? a colleague used mac os transmit for that… looks like apache is keeping the file open (it's a log file)20:16
sarnoldbaniir: here's how you can get apache to rotate log files; the important part is 'apachectl graceful': http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/logs.html#rotation20:20
baniirsarnold: thank you. attempting that command, i get "Internal error: Error retrieving pid file run/httpd.pid"20:30
sarnoldbaniir: hrm. I wonder if you can do "service apache graceful", or if 'reload' or 'restart' is tied to a graceful restart...20:31

GH0I was trying to find a help channel for smartmontools, but was unable to find one so I suppose the next best place is here. Anyways, I am trying to setup smartd to run, and scan my devices, and then e-mail me when or if there is an error or some other issue. However, I have a MegaRAID controller, and I am not sure what to do with the /etc/smartd.conf file when those come into play. Does23:50
GH0anyone here use smartd in their setup?23:50
