Re: ssh connection issue

I see a ssh-agent process running, but, to tell the truth I'm not that familiar with ssh-agent. I thought it was maybe just some background ssh helper process or something. I've never tried to configure it for anything. What is it supposed to be doing? SELinux is disabled in this environment, so tha...

Re: ssh connection issue

A little more info - If the user goes to terminal 2 (CTRL-ALT-F2) and does ssh to any host, it appears to work fine. When they're using a GUI console, it appears to hang, whether or not they're trying to get an X display back. That seems to imply something going on with the desktop manager I did som...

Re: ssh connection issue

Some more info. I can ssh into these users machines and ssh out to anywhere. I can also ssh into these machines, go to root, then "su -" to the users username and ssh out to the same locations they can't reach. The difference between my connection and theirs is that they are using a GUI manager (eit...

Re: ssh connection issue

Here's some additional info that might be relevant. /var/log/messages is filled with event logs referring to syscall=2 and syscall=87, which is "open" and "unlink" respectively. There's 50k - 60k lines in /var/log/messages. We have fairly heavy duty auditing requirements that have caused various pro...

Re: ssh connection issue

Well, the odd thing is that if the user reboots, they don't have any issues using the same key to get in - that would seem to indicate there's nothing wrong with the public key

Re: nfs server is not mounting the file system

If I could chime in: Verify the remote NFS server is serving up the mount you want: showmount -e <server ip or hostname> take the leading 'nfs' out of your /etc/fstab line Make sure what you have in your /etc/fstab for "serverip:/path of the file to be mounted" matches what comes up in the showmount...

ssh connection issue

I have a user getting some weird ssh problem. She was just recently upgraded from CentOS 7.6 to 7.7. After the upgrade, she started having this issue. When she tries to ssh to a remote site, using "ssh -Y user@remotesite", the connection hangs at one point and won't complete. It happens with several...

black screens when using vncserver

I'm having an issue using vncserver where when I connect to the vncserver on the remote host, I'm getting nothing but a black screen. After some playing around I found that when I run "vncserver" on the remote host, and I'm logged in using the KDE desktop, that is the session that gives me a black s...

Re: dracut[10797]: Failed to install module BusLogic

Hmm, it might have been a vmware issue, not CentOS directly. I reverted back to a previous snapshot, uninstalled open-vm-tools, and yum update had no issue running a 2nd time.
