    DB:3.51:/Var/Run Symlink Replaced By Directory After Reboot c1






    Hi guys!I have installed Arch on my home server a few days ago using the latest (2012.06) iso available (not the net install).My boot, root and swap partitions are all mdadm raid 1 and i use syslinux to boot which works fine.

    After setting up my machine for a while i noticed the filesystem package was not properly installed by pacstrap (even though its already pretty old and should be included in the latest iso). Dont get me wrong it WAS installed, but only the /var/lock directory was symlinked. As most of you know this package update should replace /var/run and /var/lock with symlinks.

    So i just tried to reinstall this package with pacman -S filesystem --force (as described in the news post).At first it looked great - symlinks were there and i could start several services with systemctl (which didnt work for a lot of services before), but get this:

    After every reboot or simply after some time the symlink (just of /var/run , not lock) was GONE and a file (not directory) run gets created with the following permissions - -rw------- root root. What happens is that at every reboot systemd-logind dbus and therfor most other stuff wont get started properly. For example after boot i had only just the terminal at F1, all other screens were just black and after some time i get the message that systemd-logind.service failed.When i manually remove the file and replace it by the symlink i can manually start/restart all services and from that time on everything works great.What i was interested in was WHAT exactly removed my symlink after some time or at boot time, so i used audit to monitor the symlink for a while.

    Heres what i got when the symlink was removed and then a file run was touched: http://pastebin.com/BYsRHWbCUnfortunately the ppid ( i guess parent process id) was not running anymore so i still dont have any idea whats going on exactly.

    Id appreciate ANY information or tip you have. My guess is that systemd is involved somehow.

    As a sidenote: Before i found out the symlink was missing i installed initscripts once to see of systemd was just still buggy. I removed it shortly after though.

    Looking forward to input and Im happy to answer your questions.

    Isnt Shorewall is just a collection of scripts that load iptables rules? Even the Shorewall binary is just a shell script, so you can easily `grep` through it and the config/helper files that make up Shorewall to see what its up to.

    Looks like the only time it messes with `touch` is here:
    root@antec /etc/shorewall# grep -R touch /usr/share/shorewall/*
    /usr/share/shorewall/prog.footer: touch $STARTUP_LOG
    /usr/share/shorewall/prog.footer: [ -n $SUBSYSLOCK ] touch $SUBSYSLOCK

    DB:3.31:/Var/Tmp Now Owned By Filesystem 2015.02-1 c9






    I just upgraded the filesystem package to version 2015.02-1, and it seems that it now owns the /var/tmp directory.

    Since I installed my system, I have had /var/tmp be a symlink to ../data/tmp (that is, /data/tmp), since I run massive data applications that place gigabytes (even terabytes depending on input size) of temporary data in /var/tmp by default, and I want this data to be stored on my large disk mounted at /data.

    With filesystem 2015.02-1 this does not seem to be an option, since I get the error error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) filesystem: /var/tmp exists in filesystem on upgrade and error: cannot remove /var/tmp/ (Not a directory) on reinstall (after an upgrade where I had removed the symlink).

    Is there an easy way to make /var/tmp data stored in /data with the new version of filesystem?

    Can your application redirect its temp dir? Might be easier.

    DB:3.03:Vmimages Symlink Getting Deleted With Updates zk






    Hello,

    I have VCenter 5.1, I have iso images locted on a datastore, to make them available for users i create a symlink in "/vmimages". So far everything is working great BUT everytime a host is updated i get that symlink deleted, which means i have to log in via SSH to recreate them manualy on each server.

    1. Is there a way to prevent that symlink in "/vmimages" from being deleted by updates ?

    2. If not can i automate the creation of the symlink after updates?

    Thank you.

    DB:3.03:Vmimages Symlink Getting Deleted With Updates zk


    So far this is what i implemented may be it will be useful for others (not tested with an upgrade or patching yet)

    Add the below script to "/etc/rc.local.d/local.sh" to run during boot (ESXi 5.1)

    # Create ISOs symlink if deleted by update

    SymLink='/vmimages/ISOs'

    Destination='/vmfs/volumes/datastore_3/vmimages'

    Name='ISOs'

    if [ ! -L $SymLink ]

    then

    ln -s $Destination $Name

    I have also tried this with a -debussy option ( as I had my

    DB:2.78:How To Get A Vcd Or Fsdb Dump? p3

    Hi,

    By default, sims only copies dump files to your launch directory if diag fails. For passing diags, you can force sims to copy dump files by specifying -copydump option.

    Also note that -debussy option is used to generate signal dump in fsdb format. For generating vcd dump, use -debussy and also -fsdb2vcd command line options. This will generate fsdb dump first and then run converter to create vcd.

    For single diag case, your command line will be -

    sims -sys=core1 -vcs_build -vcs_run nop.s -debussy

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for responding, Shane.

    Yes we already have several messaging servers on Solaris and the user entries exist on a central ldap server.

    Error 32 just means object not found.

    I ran it again and answered 'yes' and it worked as expected. I guess Sun never expected anyone to answer 'no' to that question. I assume that I can now go change the values with configutil to point to another directory server.

    Hi!

    I have turned on Enable Log and all the logging options in iManager,

    under Roles and Tasks-File Protocols-AFP

    The log file seems to be located in /var/log/afptcpd

    (and it has a symlink here: /var/opt/novell/afptcp.log)

    But in my case, this file is totally empty.

    The symlink is dated today, ctime and mtime today when I restarted

    the service/server after patching.

    The /var/log/aftptcpd/afptcp.log has mtime for the day I enabled the AFP

    service and ctime from when I restarted the service/server.

    The file is owned by root and permissions seems ok (dir 755/file 644).

    I see something in the audit.log

    And I see acptcpd messages in /var/log/messages and /var/log/warn

    But I assume there should be stuff in the afptcp.log file.

    If this uses syslog, I could of course create my own syslog-ng rules,

    but as the log in iManager also is empty, I assume this should be done

    by default/Novell ...

    DB:2.60:Need Help With Ssh, Creating Symlink To Usb Share, And Editting Some Files. 39



    If some would be nice enought to help me out that would be lovely.

    What I'm trying to do if it's even possible is create a symlink (symbolic link) of everything on my USB share on the main drive. So that I only need to add one share on my WDTV Live Streaming player and use the Media Library funciton in Folder View keeping things organized.

    From my understanding from reading a post else shown below, the media player can hand these links just fine as if the files on the other share are actually all in one share. He did it on a linux based server so I was thinking I would be able to alter some files and create the links through SSH with putty.

    The key to making this work is that Samba can be setup to serve the target file of a symlink rather than the symlink. This requires the following lines be in the smb.conf file (given my setup):

    unix extensions = no [global section]

    follow symlinks = yes [share section]

    wide links = yes [share section]

    Works just as I wanted: (1) can use ML without danger of video drives being touched, and (2) Movies and TV from multiple video drives end up merged into single shares.

    Obviously creating all the symlinks by hand would be annoying with more than a few files, so I wrote a simple shell script that adds any missing symlinks; I just run this script anytime I add video files to the video drives, so trivial to keep up to date. Oh, yes, one complication was subdirectories under TV. They have to be recreated in the merged share (can't be symlinks). Not a big problem when using a script.

    I got as far as SSH connected using PutTTy.

    Logged in as root.

    Navigated to /etc/samba/

    Here is where I get stuck. As the other person only has a smb.conf file. Our live duo seems to have multiple and I am quite noob at this stuff. He only mention those following lines be edited in his one file. I used the command "vi smb.conf" to view the file and it does not have any of the three things. I did notice he lists global/share sections after them. In my smb.conf file it seems to point at other files so I went to take a look. I have made no changs b/c I do not know what to do. Below I list the files I found and what is in them.

    smb-global.conf

    I found the line "unix extensions = no" here in this file and am assuming this file is what he meant by [global section] and I wont have to alter this I guess so we are good on that.

    Thank you! Really appreciate the efforts. I feel like I am in the right direction just a bit scared to try anything b/c I haven't seen any documentation on anyone doing this to their Duo. Seems like a great way to make your USB share(s) part of the main share though.

    DB:2.59:Ftp Smb On The Same Folder With Plesk 11.09 On Ubuntu 3p





    Im wondering if it is possible to configure an FTP account with a root folder that is also accessible via SMB/Samba share over the internal network interface on one of our plesk web servers. It looks like in version 8/9 there was a module for this. I dont see it in the application list for the current version of plesk. Searching this forum has yielded no fruit. Is there an application/addon/module/extension available for this version that allows me to do this?

    If not, my other option would be to install SMB manually and configure the directories shared on it manually.

    The first step to doing this would be to find the directory that plesk actually stores the FTP files in..

    Then i run
    sudo updatedb
    locate randomfilenamethatiuploaded
    to find the directory that plesk created for my file.
    When i do that, it shows the file located in
    /var/www/vhosts/domain/sitefolder/randomfilenamethatiuploaded

    however if i try to
    cd /var/www/vhosts/domain/sitefolder/
    i get permission denied...
    sudo cd /var/www/vhosts/domain/sitefolder/
    i get an error

    This leads me to believe that i couldnt configure this manually without using root or something crazy.

    Its possible i could create a symlink to a folder from /home/user/folder to /var/www/vhosts/domain/ but i dont know if that would mess anything up.

    Let me know if you have any advise for me.

    Thanks

    DB:2.59:Force Active Directory Users To Log Into A Shared Local Profile. s7



    I've searched long and hard for an answer to this but I've found very little info on it so I'm starting to wonder if it's at all possible.

    On some of our Presenter PC's at work it has been deemed that the creation of a new account from the Default profile takes too long when logging into Active Directory and slows presenting down too much. Our Default profile is probably around 120Mb due to
    the contents of the image after deployment and how every application is tailored for use hence the AppData folder takes the bulk of the size up and it's not an option to remove it.

    These PC's are (for now at least but hopefully not for much longer) locked down by Deep Freeze which resets all changes to all files when the PC is rebooted so a shared profile is not a problem at this point in time.

    What I want to know is whether there is ANY way to make it so that a user authenticating to Active Directory can ALWAYS be forced into a pre-configured, local profile running on Win 7 32/64 Pro?

    I've been looking at credential providers and replacing USERINIT.exe. I'm just not 100% sure which part of the process actually tells the PC which profile to use. I know that the registry is checked for the user GUID and if not present creates a new entry and
    copies the Default profile but I don't know quite where this is called and how to modify it.

    My programming knowledge limited to a bit of CMD and AutoIt but I do know a few coders so if we really have to get our hands dirty on this it isn't the end of the world.

    I should also add I've recently been toying with taking the AppData folder outside of the Default profile and creating a SymLink to it but upon copying the Default profile to a new profile (much quicker and more acceptable) the SymLink is lost and replaced
    with a relatively empty set of folders which can't be deleted and replaced with a SymLink because the LSASS.exe process is using it and obviously you can't stop that process...

    Making the PC log into a local profile on startup is also not an option because a user MUST log into AD to not be in breach of our AUP and all network drives must be availalbe (mapped by GPo and login script).

    Any help is more than welcome at this point in time as I've pretty much exhausted all avenues that I know of and have turned to you helpful folk. Cheers

    DB:2.59:Force Active Directory Users To Log Into A Shared Local Profile. s7

    If you happen to find any solution to force AD logins to use a shared local profile, we'd be very interested. We are a large K-12 environment and have been looking for a solution for a while as well. With potentially hundreds of users logging into any
    given machine, a solution to this would solve many slow login complaints we hear throughout the year.

    DB:2.58:News: The /Lib Directory Becomes A Symlink m7

    xstyle wrote:
    What about the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard? The reason /lib and /usr/lib are separate is because /lib should contain the system-essential libraries, kernel modules and the like that are needed to boot the system. On the other hand /usr/lib should contain non-essential libraries. For one this is good because you know whats what but on the other hand if you have /usr on a separate partition (even though its considered broken) it would mean your system would be unable to boot and to work around that youd have to mount it from the initrd. I dont see any big advantages to this change. Seeing what other distributions (such as Fedora) are doing with merging /bin and /sbin into their /usr counterparts as well which may, quite frankly, further add to the confusion what is essential to booting a system and what is not.

    Honestly, why not just make a /Linux/System32 directory and just put everything in there?

    Anyone care to explain the reasoning behind this change?

    I have a need to start my backup daemon after the server is fully booted up.

    The /etc/init.d/boot.local does not do the trick as I\'ve tested it and this

    is what it says too in the file. Since it is executed before the first run

    level, my script will not work. I need the network to be up because my

    backup daemon needs to contact the backup server. I tried adding it in

    daemon still fails. However, if I put a sleep 300 before the actual

    command, it appears to start. I did not want it hogging up the startup

    script which makes the bootup slower.

    I read Red Hat had the rc.local directory but it was taken out in SLES.

    Does anyone have an idea how to get this script started after the OS is

    fully booted up? Thank you in advance.

    I did not see anything in System Services (Yast - System Group) that

    Did you look at the /etc/init.d/README file?

    It mentions the Skeleton file and it (skeleton) shows how to write the

    Is this correct?

    It sounds more like a dependency on another service being available. I

    Do you know why my $dir variable is not replace while $rep and $archive are ?
    For the moment I make
    cd $dir

    and I don't specify the output dir, so it's extracted in the current.
    Maybe it's because ther's no space, but this program doesn't accept space after -o !

    When i try and start a Virtual Machine sometimes the virtual machine will not start. The screen with the "start" and "Edit" turns to the blank screen, but then nothing else happens, the usual HDD, CD-ROM, Network card, Etc.. icons do not even appear and nothing else happens.

    All the vmware toolbar options are greyed out "Shutdown, suspend, startup, restart, snapshot, etc."

    The only way to stop it is to kill the process.

    This happens randomly, sometimes to one VM other times to another, but when it happens to a vm, it will contimue to happen until you restart the host machine.

    The host machine is running fedora 6 with kernel 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6

    This problems happens to vm's running linux or windows guests, but since it doesn't even get to post, i'm assuming it's not an issue with the guest.

    This is the /var/lib/vmware/Virtual Machines/skynet/vmware.log file for the virtual machine that is currently locking up.

    Well, i think i have found a workaround.

    If i setup the virtual machines to startup when the host starts up, it seems to bring them up fine when i start the server console.

    So, possibly it's not a problem with the underlying vmware, but more a problem with the server console program.

    DB:2.54:[Solved] Segfaulting After Update k3



    I havent updated in a while and so I decided to do that today. I was using this in trying to resolve the error it describes. I installed the glibc listed there, removed portaudio_cpp, gdm, and pavucontrol, which were interfering with the --ignore glibc update (thinking to reinstall them afterwards) and successfully ran pacman -Syu --ignore glibc. When I went to perform the next step (pacman -Su), I discovered that any command I run with sudo segfaults. Emacs gives the error emacs: error while loading shared libraries: libtiff.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory. I wanted to come ask for advice and make sure my understanding of what was going on was at least somewhat accurate before proceeding blindly.

    So as I understand it, ultimately /lib needs to end up as a symlink to /usr/lib.

    Pacman believes I currently have glibc 14 installed, something now wants 15 (including sudo pacman, so i cant get it) and the glibc 16 I installed manulaly is awol.

    I am writing this on the system that is having the issue (firefox is still running. not sure if it would segfault if i were restarting it), and so am not quite in the place that the two how-to-recover-from-system-borking linked threads are.

    /var/log/pacman contains these lines:

    I think I am declaring a qualified success.

    For the wireless, it turned out that I had enabled dhcpcd as well as wicd in systemd while I was messing with stuff earlier. Disabling dchpcd and enabling only wicd seemed to allow me to connect. I was also able to launch xfce once I removed my .xmodmap. This confuses me, since the only thing I did was swap a couple keys like ctrl-caps lock, but hey. When I reenabled slim after fixing the wireless I was able to put .xmodmap back in with no trouble so I have no precise idea how that solution came to be. I then encountered the libpng/libtiff issue documented in the news, fixed that up, and I can now boot graphically, connect to the internet, and run (almost) all my applications.

    The one exception is that clementine segfaults immediately on startup with the message

It seems that the JRE isn't detecting the change in the link after it is destroyed and recreated; I'm suspecting a caching issue but I don't know how to resolve it. Here is my test case:

    new File("/tmp/dir1").mkdir();
    new File("/tmp/dir2").mkdir();
    Runtime.getRuntime().exec("ln -s /tmp/dir1 /tmp/symlink").waitFor();
    System.out.println(new File("/tmp/symlink").getCanonicalPath());
    Runtime.getRuntime().exec("unlink /tmp/symlink").waitFor();
    Runtime.getRuntime().exec("ln -s /tmp/dir2 /tmp/symlink").waitFor();
    System.out.println(new File("/tmp/symlink").getCanonicalPath());The output is:

    /private/tmp/dir1
    /private/tmp/dir1

    I have confirmed via the shell that the link was correctly changed and should be pointing to the new directory. Any ideas on how to resolve this?

    DB:2.52:Jboss-As-Standalone.Pid: No Such File Or Directory ca



    Hello,

    Sometimes when I try to stop my jboss-as service (via service jboss-as stop where /etc/init.d/jboss-as is a symlink to the init.d script jboss-as-standalone.sh ), it takes a little while, and I get the following message:

    grep: /var/run/jboss-as/jboss-as-standalone.pid: No such file or directory

    I guess for some reason the standalone.sh stop command is terminated after the init.d script removed the jboss-as-standalone.pid file (line 136) and so the grep command of standalone.sh does not work (line 181):

    if [ "x$JBOSS_PIDFILE" != "x" ]; then

    grep "$JBOSS_PID" $JBOSS_PIDFILE rm $JBOSS_PIDFILE

    fi

    Maybe a -f $JBOSS_PIDFILE test should be added...

    However, I'm not really sure of the reason why the service takes a while to be stopped sometimes.

    I know from an earlier thread that Cisco's position is symbolic link is not and will not be supported with /var/adm/CSCOpx, so my question is: What's the danger (if any) of manually re-establishing /var/adm/CSCOpx as a symlink to the real file system after "check_pkg_errors.sh -c" "fixes" this "error"?

    I should qualify that there is no KNOWN danger besides the upgrade. Since, as you pointed out, this configuration is not supported nor tested, we don't have a full grasp of all possible problems that may exist.

    DB:2.51:[Solved] I Deleted Sbin Symlink And Rebooted: Can It Be Re-Created ? kp



    While learning I got confused and did it ... my fault.

    I understand that the systemd update (from 2013) merged all binaries into a unified /usr/bin directory as following:

    • sbin → symbolic link to /usr/bin• bin → symbolic link to /usr/bin• lib → symbolic link to /usr/lib

    My confusion make me delete this symlink (at least I didnt delete the 3 of them) thinking they were not needed anymore.

    I also (now) understand that these symlinks are (now) provided by the systemd-sysvcompat package; am I right ?

    Upon reboot I am now encountring the Root device mounted successfully, but /sbin/init does not exist. and since I didnt messed around with the boot configuration and anything related can I manually re-create this sbin symlink ?

    DB:2.49:Minidlna Install And The Blankpage Ui Problem 3p



    Hello... my 1st post here... so -After all the Twonky and WD's DLNA server junks I thought it would be nice to find some media server wich can actually serve media files...

    That's right... the warranty... ok

    ***BEFORE YOU TRY ANYTHING, READ, RE-READ, RE-RE-READ EVERYTHING, AND IF THERE'S SOMETHING YOU DON'T GET, ASK HERE OR SEND ME A PM WITH THE PROBLEM***

    THIS miniTUTORIAL IS FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING (pretty strange for a tutorial, huh)

    What I'm trying to say is - "I'M NOT RESPONSABILE FOR YOUR BRICKED / DAMAGED OR BETTER WORKING DEVICES NOR IF YOU WILL LOSE YOUR UNIT'S WARRANTY"

    this should be enough... i guess... now let's play

    *For those of you who are still searching for an easy install of this wonderful tool:It's a great thing that debian's repository contains miniDLNA (don't care about the version as long as it does the job and I don't have to dowongrade or upgrade any of the packages)...Anyway, after you enable ssh trough the unit's UI, a simple
    $apt-get update
    $apt-get install minidlna
    should "do the trick".

    *For the "mkdir: cannot create directory `/run/minidlna': No such file or directory" - error, you can:

    A - edit the minidlna's startup script in /etc/init.d like following:
    $nano /etc/init.d/minidlna
    right below the - "PATH..." comment - you'll find the "PIDDIR" entry wich is by default set to /run/$NAME. You may want to change that into /var/run/$NAME like this:
    # PATH should only include /usr/* if it runs after the mountnfs.sh script
    ...
    PIDDIR=/var/run/$NAME
    ...
    B - just symlink /var/run to /run
    $ln -s /var/run /run

    * I would rather modify the script instead of filling the whole system with symlinks, but that's an idea too...C - Creating a /run directory - NO!Now... I saw a dozen of topics about "blank UI page problem" with the one and only solution - reset the device / rewrite the firmware, and that kind of apocalyptic workarounds...*Like any other programs, apache uses temp files, and when there's not enough space left on the disk to write them, it will serve you just as much as it could process... in this case smth right next to nothing... On the other hand, minidlna server (for those of you who got into the "blank page problem" after installing the minidlna server), does just the same and the default directory for the database + media art cache (wich database, trust me, can get huge) is /var/lib/minidlna and it stays right under the "/" partition, wich is just 2GB (the resize could be an ideea but not when you have 2TB of lots of small files). Ok, so the problem was, in my case, the low diskspace on the root partition, and the solution - besides uninstalling miniDLNA sever - was, ofcourse, moving the temp files:You can easily do this by creating a folder for miniDLNA temp files on the "shares" partition:
    $mkdir /shares/minidlna_temp
    For the server to use this folder, you will have to modify the minidlna's config file wich is located under the /etc/ directory:
    $nano /etc/minidlna.conf
    the line you'll have to edit is:

    ...
    # Path to the directory that should hold the database and album art cache.
    db_dir=/shares/minidlna_temp
    ...
    You might also want to move the default media folders from the Public directory if your NAS sits on a bigger network than your home's. So let's say we create 2 other folders under the "/shares" partition,
    $mkdir /shares/movies /shares/music
    and change "media_dir" under /etc/minidlna.conf
    $nano /etc/minidlna.conf

    ...
    media_dir=V,/shares/moviesmedia_dir=A,/shares/music
    ...
    now... miniDLNA's install creates the "minidlna" user wich can access /share/Public/* but nothing more than that.For some reason, setting ownership and permissions to this user for the newly created folders, won't be enough, the server still returning some permission related error. The workaround for this, is to create a user named "minidlna" and the two directories using NAS's web UI and to set private permissions for that user to those newly created folders through the UI itself. You may also have to do the same for the "minidlna_temp" folder for the same reason. Don't worry, this will only allow the system to modify it's database knowing about these changes.You may also want to give permissions on those two folders for your "admin" (or other own) user so you can actually put some files in there.That's it, now you have a fully functional miniDLNA server and won't ever have to reset the system for the "blank UI page problem" again. But IF that problem will reappear, you might wanna check for temp files before erasing the whole system.

    Hi,

    Could someone please update the news article on the front page from 2012-07-14 regarding The /lib directory becomes a symlink? The instructions in it are no longer accurate, and following them results in a broken system.

    If you can add the following lines from the DeveloperWiki, it would be perfect:

    Note: for installs that have not been updated to glibc-2.16, it will save you lots of time and prevent major breakage to do: pacman -U http://pkgbuild.com/~allan/glibc-2.16.0 … pkg.tar.xzwhere arch is replaced by i686 or x86_64 as required. Add a single -d if needed. Then proceed with *** INSTRUCTIONS THAT ALREADY ARE IN THE NEWS ***

    (Yes, I know I should keep my system up to date, but I have servers that I only upgrade every once in a while. Following the instructions in the news usually works, but not in this case.)

    It did not get changed 1 month later when curl was needed to be added to the --ignore list, so I doubt it is going to be changed now.

    DB:2.49:Rsync_Link Testing - Symlink Needs Relative Path Not Absolute Path For It To Work On External Devices.. 8f



    Thanks again for a fantastic bit of script.

    Managed to find some time to test the RSYNC_LINK capabilty and the symlink created works fine when accessed/used on the ESX host that creates it. Issue for me being that I 'ghetto' my VMDKs to an external NFS (NAS) storage devices which runs its own RSYNC. Subsequently the path specified in the symlink doesn't match the NASes path.

    Not being the worlds best Unix shell scripter I did how-ever manage to get the symlink to run as a relative one. eg. "./{MostCurrentDirectory}" It works an asbsolute treat.

    Core of what I had to do was as follows. I'm sure there are better ways of doing this.

    Modification 1:

    # directory name of the individual Virtual Machine backup followed by naming convention followed by count VM_BACKUP_DIR="${BACKUP_DIR}/${VM_NAME}-${VM_BACKUP_DIR_NAMING_CONVENTION}"

    # # GJ : Addition line below creates path information required for external rsync execution. # Standard VM_BACKUP_DIR is a valid path on the ESX host but not on the external device which runs the RSYNC. # RSYNC_LINK_DIR="./${VM_NAME}-${VM_BACKUP_DIR_NAMING_CONVENTION}"

    mkdir -p "${VM_BACKUP_DIR}"

    Modification 2:

    if [ "${RSYNC_LINK}" -eq 1 ]; then

    # GJ MOdification : Original line retained, but alternate Destiation created to force relative path to destination. SYMLINK_DST=${VM_BACKUP_DIR} SYMLINK_DST1=${RSYNC_LINK_DIR} SYMLINK_SRC="$(echo "${SYMLINK_DST%*-*-*-*_*-*-*}")-symlink" logger "info" "Creating symlink \"${SYMLINK_SRC}\" to \"${SYMLINK_DST1}\"" ln -s -f "${SYMLINK_DST1}" "${SYMLINK_SRC}" fi

    Alain,

    No offense taken, I just wanted to make sure I understood the issue and impact it may have on both ESX and ESXi. I think it probably won't be an issue as you mentioned using a relative symlink, but I just wanted to be sure. I know there's been ask about rsync support ... but I don't know all the details on how users may make use of this symlink functionality. I'll definitely add this on my to-do list for ghettoVCB, trying to sort through some other things before pushing out an update.

    DB:2.49:Howto: Troubleshooting Cgi Premature End Of Script Headers 3d





    Just thought I would write a quick guide on this as it such a recurring question.

    Firstly, make sure you upload the script into the cgi-bin in ASCII mode. This is a problem more oftern then you can imagine. chmod 755 the script. Check permissions are USERIDsacln (the directory should be USERIDsaserv). Of course check that the site has CGI support ticked. You can also verify the syntax of the script by running perl -c SCRIPTNAME.CGI and it should report syntax ok.

    If youre still having problems then check the logs. Check /home/httpd/vhosts/DOMAIN/statistics/logs/error_log (some installs my use /var/www/ as opposed to the plesk standard /home/httpd/vhosts) and look for errors. This log file will usually show the error message on the screen. You may also need to check /var/log/httpd/error_log. If you still dont see the problem then check /var/log/httpd/suexec.log for any

    Finally, check the correct suexec version is being used. do an ls -la /usr/sbin/suexec and compare that to /usr/local/psa/suexec/psa-suexec. If they are different then make a backup copy of /usr/sbin/suexec to something like /usr/sbin/suexec.orig. then either copy or make a symlink of /usr/local/psa/suexec/psa-suexec into the /usr/sbin directory.

    Hopefully this has been helpful.

    DB:2.47:User Session Mounts With Systemd And Pam_Mount: Suggestions? jj



    First let me explain what my current (non systemd) setup does:

    On login, a script is run from rc.local that does the following:* create /tmp/grp/usr for each user in a particular group* symlink /tmp/grp/usr/.bash* to /home/grp/usr/.bash*

    /tmp/grp/usr is the home directory of each user in that group. When a user logs in, .bash_profile is sourced and a script populates /tmp/grp/usr with symlinks to selected files in /home/grp/usr.* The purpose of this system to give the user control over dot file spam and what is written to the disk (/tmp is tmpfs and swap is encrypted).

    In addition to that, a subgroup of that group has encrypted home directories that are mounted with pam_mount on login. These are mounted on /home/grp/usr/ and symlinked as above.

    In both cases, the effective home directory of the user is /tmp/grp/usr while the real home directory is /home/grp/usr.

    systemd migrationWhat I would like to do is give each user his own nested tmpfs home directory inside /home, e.g. /home/grp/usr/tmp. That should be easy enough to do with pam_mount but as there is no encryption involved, I wonder if I can do it with systemd. If so, please point me in the right direction. I expect a systemd solution to be less susceptible to breakage than fully relying on pam_mount.

    The next step is ensuring that the the necessary symlinks exist when the user logs in. My initial approach used a custom file in /etc/profile.d that would be sourced before attempting to source the users profile, but that only works when invoking login shells (e.g. su -l), but not otherwise (e.g. su).. The same problem arises when using a custom script as a login shell.

    Nevertheless, I wonder if it is possible to use some systemd hook to symlink the .bash_profile after mount but before the users shell is invoked? I think its possible to create oneshot .service units that are launched after a .mount/.automount unit, but I doubt that would work before the users shell is running.

    So what would be the best way to ensure that the tmpfs directory exists when the user logs in, and that the users shell can source the target profile file? Ideally I would like to have the directory cleared when the last user session ends, but that is not critical.

    To complicate it a little bit more, what would be the best approach for doing the same with the encrypted mounts:* encrypted directory mounted on /home/grp/usr/ by pam_mount on login* tmpfs directory mounted on /home/grp/usr/tmp by systemd on login?* .bash_profile symlinked before users shell is running* tmpfs unmounted on logout* encrypted directory unmounted and closed on logout

    Of course, if systemd could do all of this then I wouldnt mind dropping pam_mount, even if I had to input two passwords on the initial mount (I would like to use a different password anyway).

    Any input would be appreciated. I want to have a solid plan before I implement this and Im sure that some of you will have much better ideas than mine.

    * Incidentally, this is why I create lsgrp and synclinks.

    DB:2.47:User Session Mounts With Systemd And Pam_Mount: Suggestions? jj


    If anyone stumbles across this, my solution in the end was to created tmpfs home directories per user with pam_mount and use a custom file in /etc/profile.d to handle the initial symlinks. It doesnt handle su as I would like, but su -l and normal logins work well.

    DB:2.47:Unable To Get Info For Disk (Ide 0:0) ..Can't Open .Vmdk .. The Parent Of This Virtual Disk Couldn't Be Opened k9


    Hi there. I have had a hellatious day working with VMware Server. I am running VMware-server-1.0.6-91891 on CentOS 5.3. Originally this morning, the system was running 2.0.2, but today I couldn't get into the Web UI at all. Nothing worked. We have been systematically downgrading back to 1.0.6 across the board because of poor performance from 2.0.2, and today I wasn't going to waste anymore time with this version, so I went for a downgrade as I needed to deploy 2 new VM's and without the webUI couldn't accomplish this.

    I removed the 2.0.2 rpm, and wound up rm -rf /etc/vmware just to get any left over scraps out. However, the rpm install for 1.0.6 was complaining of conflicts, so in a mistaken fashion, I did a --force install on it.

    After getting the kernel-devel/headers and the kernel matched up, I was able to get the 1.0.6 to install.

    However, I quickly realized I couldn't open any of the previous VM's (we have 4 Windows 2003 Server VM's) into the Virtual Server Console. I found a site online that talked about editing the .vmx and the .vmdk and changing a few lines, and that did indeed work for (2) of the VM's. At some point while working on the 3rd VM, I got thrown off by the different .vmdk files and I inadvertently deleted one. I don't have a backup, but I do have a snapshot, however its from June of last year. I know this may be a long shot, but let me just post some info and see if I get lucky and can (re)create this file:

    DB:2.46:How Do I Change / Set Up The Backup Directory xd





    [solved] How do I change / set up the backup directory

    Hi.

    I only have a very small /var-partition, so I have to move the backups on another.
    But the filmng (maybe part of automatic backups) failed, because it cant create a directory where a symlink already exists.

    Situation: /var/lib/psa is a symlink to /srv/backup/psa
    Error Message while creating a backup:



    Unable to create backup session: filemng failed: mkdir: cannot create directory `//var/lib/psa/dumps: File exists
    filemng: Error occured during /bin/mkdir command.

    DB:2.46:How Do I Change / Set Up The Backup Directory xd




    can i change

    # Backups directory
    DUMP_D /var/lib/psa/dumps

    To
    # Backups directory
    DUMP_D /mnt/backup/dumps in /etc/psa/psa.conf?

    DB:2.46:Installation Failed 9.0.1 - Workstation Linux jk


    Followed all the steps and they completed without error. However "Failed to setup build environment" But I know the problem itgs the same as with Fedora.

    the openSUSE kernel 3.7.6-1.2-desktop does not have -devel files! This is probably because my openSUSE version is 12.3 RC1.

    However the debug version of the kernel DOES have lthe kernel-devel files. So I will boot into that kernel and try again (after uninstalling vmware using just /usr/bin/vmware-instgaller -u vmwarfe-workstation (I do not believe I have to completely uninstall it -but perhaps I will anyway since I still have the modified vmbclock.tar in my home build directory. And yes I do have all the development files (c++ compilter etc). I'll let you knoiw in a day or so. Then I will try the same with Fedora Rawhide with a 3.8 kernel - assuming I can find the debug kernel.

    Croosinig my fingers. Thanks for your expert instructions!!

    the debug version does not boot and even if it did it would run at 1/10 speed. However the trace kernel does boot and runs fine and has the devel files.

    DB:2.46:Symlinks Work With Html But Not Php jd





    Hi,

    I try to install a serverwide Typo3 Source.

    In my testdomain i have a symlink to: /var/www/typo3_src-3.8.1/index.php

    I also have a vhost.conf allowing SymLinks:

    Directory /var/www/vhosts/pixelsucht.de/httpdocs
    AllowOverride All
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    /Directory

    But all I get is a white Page (No Errors in apache error_log)

    The wierd thing ist, when I do a Symlink to to an index.html in the same typo3_src directory is works fine! (???)

    Any suggestions?

    DB:2.46:Symlinks Work With Html But Not Php jd




    you probably want to take a look at difference between symlinks and hardlinks... could probably solve your issue if its related to the fact that php does not like the fact that symlinks is redirecting to the source/real file

    Im trying to find a better way to change my swap file location to my secondary drive in OS X.5. Currently I have set a symlink to /Volumes/MacOS_Swap/.vm from the origional /var location (after removing the previous directory).

    It seems to work well enough, however my system log cycles errors until the drive/partition is properly mounted. Any ideas on a better method?

    Systems ship with the minimum needed to boot, and not much else.

    You don't have a choice on what type of RAM to use, but prices have climbed down a lot in the two years since the introduction of Mac Pro.

    DB:2.46:Smb- Can't Move Folder Into Symlink On Samba Share zj


    Hey, I have a strange issue with a samba share. I setup a samba server on a little acer aspirerevo 1600 with XBMC Live installed (Ubuntu based). The samba share was working fine, but the internal hard drive ran out of space, so i hooked up a 2TB USB drive, and made a symlink in my samba share (the home directory for user: XBMC -- /home/xbmc). I have full read/write permissions inside the samba share and in every subdirectory. I did chmod -r 777 /home/xbmc. I also did that on the actual mount i made the symlink to -- chmod -r 777 /hitachi . I can read and write inside the symlink. I can copy or move files into the symlink just fine.
    Here is where things get strange; when I take the same file that was just fine, and put it into a folder, /home/xbmc/test, and try to move "test" into the symlink, it fails. I get prompted by OSX to enter my computer credentials. It's not the same login screen as logging into the samba share; it looks like the login for authenticating an install. I have tried both my local credentials, and the samba credentials, and either way i get an error. I actually have samba setup to allow guest access, which is how i normally login, so i shouldn't be getting anything. Windows 7 and Windows Vista can both move the folder just fine. I can move the folder via SSH into the symlink just fine. I just can't move a folder into a symlink via samba.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    DB:2.46:Smb- Can't Move Folder Into Symlink On Samba Share zj

    I can login to the samba share as a root user on the remote system and i still get this error. Is there any more information i need to share for someone to help? I can ssh in to move files, but it gets rather annoying after a few hundred files.

    DB:2.45:Borked Machine After Glibc Fiasco cf



    Ive borked my machine trying to fix the problems caused by the glibc change.

    When I try to boot the main disk, it cant detect it and dumps me into a rescue shell.

    If I boot off a rescue disk (archbang) I can mount the disk. If I then mv lib and symlink lib to usr/lib, it still wont reboot (goes to same rescue shell, failing to detect the hard drive).

    If I try to use pacman, from the rescue disk, to repair my system, such as pacman -r /mnt/arch -S glibc then I get the error failed to prepare transaction (package architecture is not valid).

    If I try to chroot into my system, then I get Failed to run command /bin/bash: No such file or directory found.

    I know its my own fault. I promise from now on, Ill read the news on archlinux.org if pacman does anything peculiar when updating. Ive learned my lesson!

    Help!

    By means of pacman -r /mnt/arch -S package-name Ive managed to install enough libraries to get pacman to run while chrooted in. But for some reason installing pcre, one of the missing libraries the system still complains about, doesnt take. It says the installation succeeds, but the system still complains about it being missing. The system still wont take any keyboard input unless I chroot in. Things seem to be rather seriously screwed up. Im thinking of just chrooting and seeing if I can do pacman -Syu. Any input on this, anyone?

    I set up my fstab to mount /tmp /var/run and /var/lock to tmpfs. When I boot my computer /var/lock does not mount correctly. If I use mount -a after boot it mounts. How can I fix this?

    Ah. of course. I put the /dev/mapper/vol/var /var jfs defaults, noatime 0 1 first and that fixed the problem.

    Thank you, rwd, for being my extra pair of eyes to catch my mistake

    Question: Why do I need to reboot my entire host so that this VM can start up? What is vmware-vmx and vmware-serverd waiting for or not receiving that it stays hung in the matter above? What are the bugs that vmware.log.BAD mean? Are these know bugs? what is the workaround?

    Any insights would be helpful. I can run a couple of more tests if need be.

    Question: Why do I need to reboot my entire host so that this VM can start up? What is vmware-vmx and vmware-serverd waiting for or not receiving that it stays hung in the matter above? What are the bugs that vmware.log.BAD mean? Are these know bugs? what is the workaround?

    DB:2.45:Need To Add Mobile (Cell) Phone In Corporate Directory Via Ldap dz



    Hello All

    Can I just start by saying that I am not a developer so expect some dumb questions to follow.

    We have cucm 6.1 and am using ldap sync to AD. The problem is that we would like to query the mobile phone field within AD and present it on the phone when the directory button is pressed.

    Is this possible ?

    From what I have read in the forums I have to create another directory ???

    I have downloaded the sdk 4.1 and tried to copy the asp files from the following directory C:\CiscoIPServices\ASP\ldap

    I have replaced the variables

    var s = new ActiveXObject("LDAPSEARCH.LDAPSearchList");

    s.server = "ldap.cisco.com";

    s.searchbase = "ou=people,o=cisco.com";

    with

    var s = new ActiveXObject("LDAPSEARCH.LDAPSearchList");

    s.server = "demounity.demo.voyager.net.uk";

    s.searchbase = "ou=users,ou=demo,dc=demo,dc=voyager,dc=net,dc=uk";

    s.SetOutputTitle("ActiveX Directory Search", 45);

    s.SetOutputPrompt("Records %s to %e of total %c", 45);

    s.AddReturnAttr("givenName,sn","Name","%1,%2", 20);

    s.AddreturnAttr("telephonenumber","Telephone","%1", 20);

    s.AddreturnAttr("mobile","Mobile","%1", 20);

    s.Addreturnattr("mail","Email","%1", 20);

    s.AddSortingAttr("telephonenumber", 1);

    s.SearchByEmail(email);

    I made these changes to all the asp files and referenced them all in a file called test_main.asp. Which is similar to the ASP_main.asp.

    I have run the regsvr32 LDAPSearch.dll and have added the following url to the phones directory url field ttp://192.168.9.101/CiscoIPServices/ldap/test_main.asp. Where 192.168.9.101 is my AD and IIS server (demounity.demo).

    The phone only display the Missed, received and places calls when I press the directory button. The corporate directory is missing.

    Are there any steps that I am missing or am I barking up the wrong tree all together

    to achieve what I need to ?

    I have also configured the CiscoUrlproxy for what reason I don't really understand.

    Thanks

    Feisal

    DB:2.45:How To Group Root Subfolders Among Partitions? fd



    After a cup of coffe, planning a new system, Ive came to conclusion that itd be logical to split the filesystem hierarchy into 3 partitions (to reserve free space for groups of them rather than for each one):

    1. bin, sbin, lib, etc, root.2. usr, opt3. var, tmp, home

    How do I best achieve this? The only idea came into my mind is putting opt inside usr and creating /opt as a symlink to /usr/opt, with home and tmp placed same way inside var. Is it a good idea or not?

    BTW I use LVM2 for everything except /boot and I only use /home as a place for user-specific programs settings files, all the data of mine (projects, downloads, etc) is stored on a separate partition.

    Symlinks should work just fine, at least for /home I have used this approach in the past. I dont see a reason why it shouldnt work for the other directories.

    DB:2.45:Spamtrainer -F &Amp; X-Spam-***: Question ka


    I switched to a Mac Pro Intel as my server a few months ago. I have been working out the kinks. I was moving from a Tiger Server install on a PowerMac G5. I had all the stuff for amavis, clamav, spamassassin fixed on that install. I missed something since I have 2 .spamassassin directories and no symlink in /var/clamav/ or /var/amavis/. I have been running the nightly cron job as setup by Spamtrainer 1.2.7. I just updated to 1.5.7.
    So since I have been running this I do have a bayes DB.
    sudo su - clamav -c "sa-learn --dump magic"
    0.000 0 3 0 non-token data: bayes db version
    0.000 0 14767 0 non-token data: nspam

    0.000 0 12699 0 non-token data: last expire reduction count

    First question is if I run spamtrainer -f will this delete the current DB?
    If yes how do I combine the 2 directories before making the symlink?
    What directory does spamtrainer -b backup /var/amavis/ or /var/clamav/?

    /var/amavis/.spamassassin root# ls -loa

    -rw------- 1 clamav clamav - 5410816 Feb 2 05:30 bayes_toks

    My final question goes to the X-Spam-*: headers.
    They should be in every mail that is delivered right? I only see these headers in mail with subject * JUNK MAIL *.
    Will this be fixed after the symlink is done so all mail has X-Spam-*: headers in them?

    DB:2.45:Spamtrainer -F &Amp; X-Spam-***: Question ka

    Thanx Again for the help.
    @localdomainsmaps = ( 1 );
    I believe this was just added by spamtrainer 1.5.7 -f because it is there and I just scrolled back in Terminal and it says it add it as well as the symlink and fixes to local.cf. Not sure if it was there before but I doubt it. So thank you for the help and thank you for coming up with such excellent little freeware tools. Makes us Unix geek wannabes look good, lol.

    DB:2.44:Problem Loading Some Symlinked Jars xz


    Hi,

    We have a very strange problem with loading jars (which are symlinks).

    We are loading about 20 jars inside a certain directory and all are ok, except 1 sometimes (x.jar)

    Lets say the files are inside /opt/shared/lib and ls /opt/shared/lib shows:
    a.jar - /opt/a/a.jar
    b.jar - /opt/b/b.jar
    c.jar - /opt/c/c.jar
    d.jar - /opt/d/d.jar
    x.jar - /opt/x/x.jar

    For some reason loading x always gives the exception:
    Caused by: java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.io.FilePermission /opt/x/x.jar read)

    When we look at /opt/x/x.jar, the permissions are fine. Now comes the strange part.
    After some tries we ended up with (d.jar was obsolete):
    a.jar - /opt/a/a.jar
    b.jar - /opt/b/b.jar
    c.jar - /opt/c/c.jar
    x.jar - /opt/x/x.jar

    and everything works as expected.

    Then we:
    1. remove the symlink x.jar
    2. add a new (dummy) file to this directory
    3. make the symlink again
    4. remove the dummy file

    Now the problem occurs again and we get the above io.FilePermission exception.

    Now if we:
    1. remove the symlink
    2. make the symlink again

    The exception is gone, it seems as if the symlinks takes the physical place of the dummy file on the filesystem.

    Redoing the above sequences gives again the FilePermission exception and finally OK again.

    If it is feasible, you can use a system-calls monitoring utility like "truss" or "strace" to see what goes on under the Java hood.

    DB:2.44:[Solved] System Hosed After Upgrade - No X, No Network - Upgrade Bug? pc



    So I did an upgrade last night and hosed my install completely. X didnt start up again, no eth0, no nothing.

    According to https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/De … iki:usrlib, lib is now a link to /usr/lib. Something must have gone wrong on my system, since my /lib still is a real directory.

    At any rate, my issue was that the modules directory was not flound by modprobe anymore, because of the /usr/lib change, I assume. When looking at /usr/lib/modules, I only found one directory 3.4.4-3-ARCH, even though my kernel version is frozen to 3.0-ARCH. So I created a symlink in /usr/lib/modules pointing to /lib/modules/3.0-ARCH, rebooted, and now everything works again.

    Hope this helps someone else.

    On a side note, anyone know what I need to do to properly upgrade such that my /lib becomes a symlink, or should I just leave things as is? Pacman never complained....

    As it worked fine yesterday, i checked and found libbfd is in /usr/lib and belongs to binutils, and this was updated today to binutils-2.17.50.0.18-1 .

    In the previous 2.17 versions of binutils it installed libbfd-2.17.so , now it installs libbfd-2.17.50.0.18.so .

    Creating a symlink for libbfd-2.17.so works as a temporary solution

    As bfd is used by many apps , ive submitted a bugreport Flyspray #7762

    DB:2.43:Latest Binutils Break Libbfd xc


    Since bfd was involved and this is used by many apps, i thought it could have repercussions on many arch packages, that was the reason for the bugreport.Ive seen jgc closed the bug because libbfd should not be linked dynamically but static and am investigating further.Rebuilding the package doesnt work, and i think the culprit is not the app oolite, but the GNUstep-core packages (community) that are needed to compile/run oolite.

    Atm it looks like gnustep-base uses dynamic linking at buildtime and needs to be rebuild everytime the toolchain changes.Im attempting to rebuild oolite and gnustep-base to see if i can solve the problems.

    Sidenote : almost all problems ive had with this app are related to GNUstep. Once ive figured things out ill notify the TUs who maintain gnustep-core.

    I am totally confused by these error messages. However

    reinstalled it once again. But this time when I want to
    uninstall the whole software, I found there is no "uninstall"

    What could I do to uninstall the whole software without
    using rpm to delete them one by one manually?

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    I'm trying to run VMware Workstation with backgrounded VM's on a remote machine, so that I can log in via SSH with X forwarding and play with the VM's. I've set machines to run in the background after I close vmware.

    However, when I re-open vmware, any running VMs exit, and I get a corresponding number of "X11 connection rejected because of wrong authentication." error messages printed to the console.

    I have a network home directory on this machine; there are posts for VMware Server that would imply that this could be relevant. However,my XAuthority file isn't in my home directory; it's on local disk. $XAUTHORITY correctly points to it, as does a symlink in ~/.Xauthority (the symlink is readable without network authentication). Is there anything else that could be going wrong?

    Hello,

    Im growing exteremeley frustrated with lighttpd on arch. Ive never had so much trouble with a version of lighttpd on any distro. Nonetheless I only have one major problem left to solve. That is, anytime lighttpd tries to reference a directory or file outside of the document-root gives me a 403 - Forbidden. For example, my mod_userdir configuration doesnt work at all I get a 403 for every user with a public_html folder. Any directories I symlink to the document root are also inaccessible even though they have complete world access (0777) permissions. Ive posted my lighttpd.conf file below. This same problem also applies to mod_alias directories.

    resurrecting old threadOk, so I have a project that I wanted (I thought) to keep in my home directory, and just symlink or use an alias to access it from /srv/http. However, as tuoppi reported above, the only way to enable this is to chmod 711 my home directory. What is the best way to handle this? Is that substantially less secure to have 711 on /home/user? Should I just keep my projects in /srv/http and add that to my backup list? This is just running the server on my laptop localhost only...not exposed to the world. Im also intending to manage it with git, so does that change where its easiest to store projects? Is this solely a lighttpd issue?

    Thanks for any input!Scott

    DB:2.42:[Solved]/Usr/Lib/Libgl.So.1 Symlink Keeps Changing On Package Installs kj



    Hello,

    I recently switched my desktop from using the proprietary nvidia drivers to nouveau. After doing so, I experienced seg faults in many applications (emacs, xfce4-session). I tracked down the problem to be caused by the /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 symlink pointing to the wrong file. I noticed that if I looked in /usr/lib, I would see libGL.so.1 - libGL.so.190.42 when in fact it should have been pointing to mesa-libGL.so.1.2.0. ( https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=174663 )

    Changing the symlink by hand ( sudo ln -sf mesa-libGL.so.1.2.0 libGL.so.1 ) makes everything work again, but every time I install something new the symlink goes back to libGL.so.190.42.

    What is causing this symlink to change on every package install and how can I stop this from happening?

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    I am trying to relocate the PSA database to another server. By default, Plesk is trying to connect over the mysqld.socket. Is it possible to change this to a TCP connection ?

    Moreover, I want to run the Plesk panel in a chroot directory and use my primary MySQL enterprise server on the same host(for now). I made make a symlink of the mysql.socket within the croot enviroment but Plesk cant connect to it. Possible this rather a restriction of MySQL.

    Thanks a lot,

    I'm trying to get a VM booting from an NFS location. Actually the whole server is nfsroot'd, which is why the VM will also be running over NFS.

    I'm currently running Gentoo (I'll switch if I have to) which is know is not supported, but everything (apart from the actual VM booting!) seems to work fine by simply emerging vmware-server running the config perl script.

    I get an event log in the vmware log dir, and the vmware log file says:

    Certainly a virtual disk - there are no physical ones in the machine!

    I had already made sure the perms were 777, but I tried changing for all the other files in the directory, and the directory itself. I'm attempting to run this as root anyway though so I'm not sure this should matter - or is this the problem - is it ok to run as root (security aside)?

    Anyway, the log file in this dir has a bit more debug info than the other main logfile:

    I've been running large clustered mod_perl applications for a fewyears and now am about to be deploying a cluster of jboss applicationservers for the first time. I've read through the general and clustering docs on labs.jboss.com.1. With our mod_perl applications we mount a shared filesystem with apache and our mod_perl application code. Individual nodes write to individual filesystem locations for logs and that type of thing but the app code is shared. Is it possible or useful to use this model with jboss? Farm deployment seems great for tossing out new EAR files in a running cluster, but the nodes have to have a basic jboss install up and running for that to work. I'd like a way to not have to configure jboss separately for each node in the cluster. Can anyone describe a solution like this?2. Can anyone verify what directories in the jboss_home/server// directory that jboss needs write access to to run the server instance? Obviously the log directory and likely the work directory. Anything else? All? Can the things that need to be written to be moved outside this tree?3. Is there a way to relocate the server directory outside the JBOSS_HOME dir? Do the other directories besides server need to be writable to the running server? I would like to place JBOSS_HOME on a volume mounted read-only by all nodes in a cluster, but I don't know if this will work. If not, it could be installed locally in /usr/local/. Either way, I'd still need a way to move the server directory outside that tree to another shared NFS mount, but one that is writable obviously as this directory isclearly written to during server operation. I'm hoping the server directory can be moved with something more graceful than replacing it with a symlink after install.4. Taking suggestions or examples for how to plan for deployment ofcode (is it really just new EAR files via deploy or farm deploy as ourdev claims or are the other server bits twiddled often?) as well asconfiguration changes and other maintenance of a cluster of many nodesto minimize administrative effort.5. It looks like the JMX console provides a lot of data about thestate of a running cluster though I haven't gotten into all itssupport uses yet. Any good docs for utilizing built in jboss featuresfor operations support of webapps? Is it advisable to run this consoleon all nodes? Would it be better to use HA Singleton to run it on onenode only? Or potentially even run it only on a specific node thatdoes not serve customer traffic due to security or performanceconcerns?Thanks,KC Braunschweig

    DB:2.42:Bugs With Ant And Symbolic Links j3


    I'm running 10.5.2. I've had a couple issues with how ant deals with symbolic links. I'm using the Ant that came with the developer tools.

    $ ant -version
    ]Apache Ant version 1.7.0 compiled on September 23 2007

    1) I had the following in my build.xml:

    mkdir dir="${dist}/temp"/
    symlink action="single" link="${dist}/temp/Applications" resource="/Applications" /
    ...
    delete dir="${dist}/temp" /

    In other words, I created a temporary directory, stuck in a symbolic link to /Applications, did some stuff, and deleted the temporary directory.

    Ant proceeded to delete 7,800 some files out of /Applications. Fortunately, I run Time Machine and was able to recover completely within 20 minutes or so. But, it was pretty unnerving.

    It's also clearly a bug. If you recursively delete a directory from the shell, it does NOT follow symbolic links. It simply deletes the link.

    2) So, obviously I need to work around this by deleting the symbolic link before deleting the directory containing it.

    symlink action="single" link="${dist}/temp/Applications" resource="/Applications" /
    ...
    symlink action="delete" link="${dist}/temp/Applications" /

    Nope. That generates:

    BUILD FAILED

    THE RESOURCE'S NAME ON DISK HAS BEEN CHANGED BY THIS ERROR!

    and leaves the symbolic link intact.

    That's obviously another bug.

    Presumably, both of these are bugs in ant, but I'm bringing them up here because they may or may not affect other platforms, but they certainly do affect OS X.

    I'm open to suggestions on how to workaround the problems. Thanks.

    DB:2.42:Bugs With Ant And Symbolic Links j3

    I'm running 10.5.2. I've had a couple issues with how ant deals with symbolic links. I'm using the Ant that came with the developer tools.

    $ ant -version
    ]Apache Ant version 1.7.0 compiled on September 23 2007

    1) I had the following in my build.xml:

    mkdir dir="${dist}/temp"/
    symlink action="single" link="${dist}/temp/Applications" resource="/Applications" /
    ...
    delete dir="${dist}/temp" /

    In other words, I created a temporary directory, stuck in a symbolic link to /Applications, did some stuff, and deleted the temporary directory.

    Ant proceeded to delete 7,800 some files out of /Applications. Fortunately, I run Time Machine and was able to recover completely within 20 minutes or so. But, it was pretty unnerving.

    DB:2.42:Udev Persistent Device Names On Sles10 Sp2 j9


    Hi all,

    I followed Note 465001.1 , specifically "3b. Add udev raw binding rules to /etc/udev/rules.d/61-oracleraw.rules file", as i want to create persistent device names for the raw and block devices.

    I'm not able to get this to work on SLES10.

    I created 2 rules files in /etc/udev/rules.d :

    -- 98-oracle-naming.rules :
    KERNEL=="sd?1", BUS=="scsi", PROGRAM=="/sbin/scsi_id -g -s %p", RESULT=="360a980005033553656344e6c6a537a55", NAME="ocr10", OWNER="root", GROUP="oinstall", MODE="0640"

    After a reboot, the /dev/ocr10 device is created with the proper permissions:

    DB:2.41:How To Use Symlink For Appdata Usrclass.Dat d1


    Hello,

    I want to move the AppData\Local\ folder to another HDD and not my SSD.
    I logged into the Administrator account so that I had full access to the other account I wanted to move.
    I copied the whole user account AppData\Local to another partition, deleted the original folders and created a symlink via

    mklink /d "C:\users\--\AppData\Local" "F:\users\--\AppData\Local"

    I can login to the moved account without problems and it works fine beside one thing (or one thing I have discovered yet):

    When you want to change the file associations, for example which program should run when I doubleclick an .txt, nothing happens, also no new context menu items can be created (like sandboxie for example would give you an "run sandboxed" option when right clicking
    a file).

    This has to do something with UsrClass.dat in appdata\local\microsoft\windows\ which seems not to be able to be symlinked, because I can symlink all other folders in appdata\local\ one by one, as long as I don't touch this file.

    Any ideas how to fix this problem/bug? How to create a symlink that works with UsrClass.dat?
    Thanks

    I have sdlmame 0.156.u0-1 installed. I am hoping someone can point out what I need to do for sdlmame to recognize 7-zip files. If I need to re-compile it and with what config? Thanks for any pointers!

    Edit [Solved]: The issue was the directory name contained a space, I created a symlink to point to the game directory and specified the symlink in the mame.ini file. Sdlmame instantly recognized all the game files!

    DB:2.41:Persistant Directories Under /Var/Run 3d


    Hi All,

    Nice and simple one (I hope). I'm running a clustered MySQL service on two nodes, and I'd like for the pid files to be stored under /var/run.

    As this service runs as the mysql user, I have had to create a subdirectory /var/run/mysql owned by this user - however, this vanishes after a reboot, which means I have to remember to recreate it if I reboot a node.

    Is there a startup script (like /etc/init.d/boot.local, in some Linuxes) where I can shove the commands to recreate the required directory, or is there a better way of making this directory (and it's permissions) persistant?

    Thanks in advance,

    Pete

    DB:2.41:Persistant Directories Under /Var/Run 3d

    Well, changing the permission would enable the mysql user to create its beloved /var/run/mysql directory. It wouldn't change the behaviour of the directory othervise.

    The characteristics of the /var/run is to be emptied at boot, its the reason as to why it was implemented (since its emptied its a perfect storage for pid files and things like that, since you know that they wont be staled after a reboot or crash).

    The best solution for this problem is to change the pidfile location to /var/run and change the permission of the /var/run directory so that the MySQL user can write to it. If that doesn't work its probably easier (and safer) to use /var/mysql or similar for the pid files.

    Hi all,I've successfully sequenced a program called Srim to Q:\Srim.It analyzes data, and spits out a TRANSMIT.txt to Q:\Srim\SRIM Outputs\.  The output directory is coded in.The program is sequenced and runs fine, but my user wants access to TRANSMIT.txt.  Let's say I want TRANSMIT.txt to dump out to each users' desktop.  Is this possible?  What are my options?I've read about the OSD scripting options.  But if I understand it correctly, those could only copy the file over before or after the application runs.  I need it to copy over while the program is still running (After the Output file generation function).In a non-virtualized system, I would probably use a symlink to redirect the output directory.  I tried virtualizing a symlink, but the sequencer didn't fall for it; It followed my symlink and grabbed the files as if there wasn't a symlink at all.Thanks in advanced for any help and double thanks for this community.  It has been very helpful.

    DB:2.40:Xcode4 And Symlinks In Build Directory xd


    I apologise if this is not the correct place for this post yet there does not seem to be a dedicated forum for xcode besides behind a pay wall.

    First off I have xcode 4.0 Build 4A304a from the MAS, yet the MAS disagrees with me and will not let me install the update; so I do not know if the following is fixed in that version.

    If you create a xcode4 workspace and project using the default configurations (for example a C command line application), when you archive it then xcode4 moves the binary and creates a symlink. This seems fine as it is doing what the docs state, in that the build directory contains the binaries or symlinks to them. The problem is the symlink is invalid. By default the symlink is created in
    ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/SolutionName-SomePostfix/ArchiveIntermedia tes/SolutionName/BuildProductsPath/Release
    and points to

    ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/SolutionName-SomePostfix/ArchiveIntermedia tes/SolutionName/InstallationBuildProductsLocation/usr/local/bin/SolutionName

    Yet there is no InstallationBuildProductsLocation so an invalid symlink is created, this does not happen when you skip install as it creates a valid symlink then. Is there a setting missing from the default configurations, is this xcode4 bug or was it an xcode4 bug which is fixed in the updated version.

    Thanks

    Based on forum posts here, installing anything will be a fail, since these forums are primarily problem reports. Not sure why you think installing Xcode 4.0.1 would get you more "broken" than you are today with Xcode 4.0. Even if your specific problem is not fixed in 4.0.1, other problems are fixed. If you are concerned the install process will update incorrectly, uninstall 4.0 first. If 4.0.1 is in fact worse (unlikely), you could then uninstall 4.0.1 and re-install 4.0 if you save a copy of the installer. You can also install Xcode 3.2 in a separate folder so you can run both.

    DB:2.40:Problem With Alias/Symlink On Smb-Connections mj


    After upgrading to SL i no longer can access our company web root directory.

    Our web pages are located on a Linux server, and usually connect to this server using a SMB-connection to my home directory.

    In my home directory, there is a symbolic link (symlink) to the root directory of our web-pages. In a unix shell on the linux machine, it looks like this:

    agnar@e206:~$ pwd
    /home/agnar
    agnar@e206:~$ ls -l
    ...
    lrwxrwxrwwx 1 root agnar 20 7 mai 2006 web_root - /home/srv/html/emap/
    ...

    This symlink works as any directory, so I can easily

    agnar@e206:~$ cd web_root
    agnar@e206:~/web_root$

    In OSX10.5, the web_root symlink displayed and behaved just like any directory or folder (as it is supposed to do).

    The same applies to connections from any MS Windows computer.

    But it appears that SL tries to be too smart.

    In finder, this symlink is displayed as an "Alias" (in the Type column)

    When I double-click the alias, I get an error message (translated from Norwegian) "The alias, web_root can not be opened because the original object could not be found". And buttons to delete the alias, repair the alias or just "OK".

    When I try the following command in a terminal shell on my Mac.

    mcagnar2:agnar agnar$pwd
    /Volumes/agnar
    mcagnar2:agnar agnar$ ls -l
    ...
    lrwxrwxrwwx 1 root agnar 20 7 mai 2006 web_root - /home/srv/html/emap/
    ...
    mcagnar2:agnar agnar$cd web_root
    -bash: cd: www_emap: No such file or directory

    So it appears that SL attempts to open "/home/src/html/emap/" which does not exist on my computer (its the path to the web root on the linux machine), rather than "/Volumes/agnar/web_root/" as it is supposed to do.

    Is there a way to change/configure SLs behaviour in this regard?
    Or is it a bug?

    DB:2.40:Update Bootloader In An Ota Using The Updater_Script 91


    Hi Alejandro,

    You have make the package as a "update.zip". There are two ways that I know of; the first way is right in the documentation FAQ.

    35 How do I build an OTA package?

    The Android build system supports auto generation of update.zip. It can generate the updater_script and all system.img files.

    You can use the following command to generate an OTA package.

    $ make dist

    For example, you use this command to build sabresd_6dq product after the build finish.

    $ make PRODUCT=sabresd_6dq-eng dist -j4

    You can find a few packages in the following path for the OTA update.zip to do the OTA and make a different package.

    out/dist/sabresd_6dq-ota-eng.xxx.zip

    out/target/proudct/sabresd_6dq/sabresd_6dq-ota-eng.xxx.zip

    The package we used before R13.1 was update.zip. In this package, however, everything is automatically generated.

    You would then sign the update.zip with your digital keys (also in the FAQ).

    The second way would be to use "Dsixda's Kitchen". This is a whole tutorial in itself, but a very awesome tool.

    Next you would unzip the update and navigate to the updater_script in the "META-INF folder:

    META-INF/com/google/android

    Update the updater script to load the new bootloader if needed and zip the update back up.

    Put the update on a sdcard (not in any folder) and update through the recovery, adb, or fastboot.

    TIP: updating the updater_script in windows: do not use notepad, use notepad++.

    updating the updater_script in Ubuntu: you can use gedit, but I prefer Geany or SciTE.

    Hope this helps,

    Dave

    DB:2.39:Ghettovcb 2011_11_19_1 Getting Rsync Symlinks Wrong If Pwd Set (Esx 4.1u3) 7m



    If run from a shell on ESX 4.1U3 it causes the rsync symlinks to be wrong.

    It's basically this line: ln -sf "${SYMLINK_DST1}" "${SYMLINK_SRC}"

    This will get it wrong, and derefence the existing symlink wrong, meaning the link will not be advanced from the previous existing to the currently freshly completed backup.

    For some reason this goes right if the current working directory is equal to VM_BACKUP_VOLUME/$VM, if cwd it's any other then it will mess up the links, placing the link to the new backup inside whatever the existing rsync symlink points to and leaving the existing intact.

    The quick fix is to change "ln -sf" to "ln -s" and add a line up fron delting the existing symlink first by running rm -f "${SYMLINK_SRC}".

    So in short, this is broken for some cases:

    ln -sf "${SYMLINK_DST1}" "${SYMLINK_SRC}"

    and this is somewhat more foolproof:

    DB:2.38:Directory Issue When Migrating 9a





    Hello!

    Im migrating my customers from a RH9 box with PSA 7.5.3 to a debian box with 7.5.4

    Now I got the problem with paths. Plesk 7.5.4 under debian wants its users vhost under /var/www (which makes sense for debian). On the old RH9 Server with PSA 7.5.3, the vhost directory resides in /usr/local/psa/home

    Someone in this forum (sorry, cant find the thread anymore) proposed me to do a symlink from /usr/local/psa/home/vhosts to /var/www/vhosts which i did. This is because many scripts (mainly php) are pointing to /usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/...

    But now I get theses Error messages:
    fopen(/usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/***.ch/httpdocs/albums/.users/.htaccess): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/vhosts/...
    I get rid of the openbasedir errors by setting:
    php_admin_flag engine on
    php_admin_value safe_mode 0
    php_admin_value open_basedir none
    In this users httpd.include

    Any suggestions? How can I migrate this customers to the new server without having to go trough each single php script?

    DB:2.38:Vbscript: Wshshell.Run Method Fails W/ Fffffffe After Cd To Junction Point 7j


    Hi folks,
    I have a vbs that has been running happily for quite some time and recently - I believe after some Windows updates - has started to fail on several machinesin a way that my Google-Fu has not been able to find similar issues. This is running on
    Windows 7 HP SP1
    After debugging I boiled the problem down to the following snippet which reproduces the issue:
    Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject(WScript.Shell)
    WshShell.CurrentDirectory = C:\juncDir ' junction to C:\Windows
    'WshShell.CurrentDirectory = C:\linkDir ' symlink to C:\Windows
    'WshShell.CurrentDirectory = C:\Windows
    startCmd = cmd /k echo DEBUG STARTED
    WshShell.Run startCmd, 1, True

    If I invoke Run after changing to a junction point or symlink then the I get an error popup indicating Error: (null), Code: FFFFFFFE, Source: (null) at the beginning of the line with the Run. This used to work.
    If I CD to a normal directory it works.
    If I use Exec (with appropriate parameter changes) instead of Run it works for any of the junction/symlink/normal directory but this is not desirable as I need the window control sync execution of Run.
    Ideas?
    Thanks, Derek

    Thanks for trying. It has happened now on 4 devices - we have ~40 more where the problem does not happen. Once it starts, though, it doesn't stop, and it appears to start after Windows updates have been applied, although that is anecdotal at
    this point.
    I worked around it by changing directory (to the junction point) in the wrapper that calls this script instead of in the script itself. Then the run method works fine. A bit of a head scratcher for sure.
    Thanks.

    DB:2.38:[Solved] Fglrx Recompile Fails, Kernel Headers Are Absent mz



    The fglrx mkinitcpio hook fails with:

    - Parsing hook: [fglrx]Building fglrx module for 3.0-ARCH kernel ...Failed!!! Check out log: /var/log/catalyst-install.log

    Looking into the log reveals:

    --------2011-11-09 14:12:08Building fglrx module for 3.0-ARCH kernel ...--------Kernel header files are absent: directory /lib/modules/3.0-ARCH/build doesnt exist! Game over

    The /lib/modules/3.0-ARCH/build directory indeed does not exist.

    I have the linux-headers package installed, but pacman -Ql linux-headers says that it is installed to /usr/src/linux-3.1.0-4-ARCH/, and it places a symlink to /lib/modules/3.1.0-4-ARCH.

    How can I tell the catalyst hook to look in /lib/modules/3.1.0-4-ARCH, instead of /lib/modules/3.0-ARCH?

    This is why you should use -Syu foobar and not -Sy foobar.

    My main system no longer booted after doing a pacman -Syu yesterday, following the instructions at https://www.archlinux.org/news/the-lib- … a-symlink/ .I booted a livecd, rsynced my /home to a storage drive and did a netinstall today. The system still doesnt boot.The screen goes black after waiting for udev uevents to be processed appears, together with expected microcode errors.I booted the system with a livecd again and mounted /dev/sda3. /var/log is empty, except for a pacman.log from the install, containing no errors.

    Adding nomodeset to the grub kernel line made it boot fine, so Ive narrowed it down to a framebuffer issue.

    DB:2.38:9i On Debian Sarge ck


    Hello,
    I know its not meant to be but i would like to install 9i on debian release sarge.
    Since its a linux derivate it should work :-) but is does not....

    Prerequisites
    Gcc 2.95 (installed, AND adapted GCC symlink to that version)
    Libmotif (could not install, conflicts with other packages ..)
    SUN JDK 5 (installed !)

    Wen starting the ./Runinstaller
    mp/OraInstall2006-06-19_08-37-31AM/jre/bin/java. Please wait...
    /tmp/OraInstall2006-06-19_08-37-31AM/jre/bin/i386/native_threads/java: error whi le loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    = fixed this by creating a symlink to the most recent version.

    Then i ran the runinstall again and then it goes: Initializing Java Virtual machine from temppathtooracleinstall /JRE/BIN/JAVA. Please wait...

    I keep on waiting, but after while im tired of waiting (lets say 5 minutes even 20 minutes) and press enter..
    Then this error pops up "Segmentation fault"
    .............. that's that.....

    I decided to edit the runInstaller script and run the last entry manually
    it goes = runinstaller $* from within the disk1/install/linux/somewhere map...

    then i get [1] 2386

    Do you think this is a problem with :
    Java
    the libstdc++ library
    Oracle just not running on sarge ?

    I could try out fedora but i'd prefer having it running on my test debian machine.

    Why oracle 9I you ask ??? since that's (along with 8.1.7) the version running in production environment at the customers office...

    btw: 10G XE runs fine...

    thanks for any suggestions

    DB:2.38:9i On Debian Sarge ck

    Yep i know , and it already helped me out a bit, but i'm still stuck at the libmotif lib's...

    I'm going to try installing fedora and see if i can get it running on that and leave my debian machine on oracle 10g XE.

    Kind Regards

    DB:2.38:[Solved] Ssd Installation: Move Existing /Var To Hd 97



    Hello,

    Im thinking about installing a SSD into my PC running Arch64 with systemd and some other distros on separate partitions. Thinking about high writing volume, I want to put / leave /var on the harddisk.

    The first attempt to see what would happen was to move /var (from another system, not from the one where I want to move /var) to another partition and created a symlink. After that, the system doesnt start any more - it seems that Arch tries to write to /var/run which wasnt mounted in early boot phase as it resides on another partition.

    I assume the same effect if I put an entry for /var in /etc/fstab.

    How can I move /var to another partition without experiencing boot problems? Perhaps the problems only occur with systemd?

    Thanks for some advice.

    Edit: I tried with fstab entry/new_dir/var /var ext4 bind

    ... and it works! No errors on boot.

    DB:2.37:Thread: Symlink 'Install' Directory To Free Up Disk Space 77


    I just successfully upgraded our 10.3.4 server to 11.2.2 which went remarkably well, the only real problem I had was figuring out which license code to use for system updates out of the 20-30 Zenworks 11\'s that are listed on our customer center.

    There was however something that did become problematic for the reporting server, the /opt folder grew significantly in size between Zen 10 to Zen 11.2 which made my root volume not have enough space.

    I \'solved\' this by moving and then symlinking /opt/novell/zenworks/install to a different partition that holds our content-repo (/var/opt is a different partition on our server so that imaging application uploads will not fill up the root)

    So far everything seems to work just fine, with a few exceptions all our workstations seem to be updating nicely.

    But is anybody aware of any issues that might come from this ? From what I can tell this dir just holds the zenworks updates themselves.

    Thanks,

    Arjan

    DB:2.37:Thread: Symlink 'Install' Directory To Free Up Disk Space 77

    I have to grave post on this one as I just ran into issues because of this.

    The 11.2.3a update fails on this when it needs to re-create deployment packages.

    I just had to add 2 more disks and add this new space to the root lvm volume for this to work. Shrinking volumes on linux was too big a risk for me to take but in theory that should be possible too.

    Not sure if this falls under the bug category or not

    DB:2.37:Symlink Have Weird Behavior With Relative Path ? 7m



    Lets say I have

    /a/b/c/c/b (which is symlink to /a/b)

    When Im in /c/b and doing anything relate to relative path like run ls ../file_list . Im expecting file to goes into /c/file_list, but file goes in to /a/file_list instead.

    Theres the way to change it ? Id like the symbolic link to act exactly like normal directory.
