Is Remmina ceashing when RDP to older servers like Server 2008 R2? That’s the only server giving me issues with Remmina. Try freerdp or rdesktop through command line and see if you have a better experience.
Does it actually do something? XFS famously does a placebo check.
Yes, it actually does something. It's fixed a couple of systems here for me that wouldn't mount a data drive.
Interesting. With XFS?
Yepp. I know the system is XFS. I'm trying to get connected to it now, but it lost it's AD connection and I don't have a local login on it, lol.
Can't you boot the machine using some LiveCD and alter the PAM order / add pam_unix/pam_localuser? You could also change root's password this way. This only works if the drive is not encrypted or you have the key.
Yeah, I could do that, but I like my job, lol. In an emergency that's what we do, but this isn't an emergency (the system is up, my login isn't working).
Create a new secure SSH key:
ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C "root-webserv1-key"
Hit enter for default location and name.
Hit enter again to skip passphrase creation.
Now you should SSH to server to continue.
Does this step disable normal logins or change anything at all? After my first restart my root password isn't working.
This only generates a new certificate and does not do anything else. If your root password is not working, maybe you are typing it in incorrectly, or it's something else entirely, as what @NashBrydges is referring to. If you are using Putty, perhaps it's caching the old public key.
Too bad ovs isnt in the repos for RHEL/CentOS. You can set up these private networks and connect them through a VXLAN with ovs. That way you can have something like a separate dev network on the same hosts and they can communicate between hosts.
Not available in the epel repo?
That is apparently the case unless my google--fu isn't up to snuff
Nope. It is available in Fedora though. If you want to install it you have to manually build the RPMs. While not hard to build it would be a pain to maintain updates.
OVS is used by oVirt so maybe the centos ovirt repo has it (or the ovirt stable repo)
I'm assuming it's just building the RPM since it's not in the normal repo.
