Re: Good folders to backup to make it easier to restore system?

Hi - I'm a little confused. I did all my installs with yum so a record of all of them should be in the yum log. The only manual customizations I made were in /etc. So, in this case, do I really need /root, /opt, and /boot as I touched nothing there? The system is used only for a few things, so I'm l...

Good folders to backup to make it easier to restore system?

Hi - I recently installed/updated Centos 7.3 (1708), I know that, down the road, when my disk dies (all disks die) it's recommended to install the latest system rather than restore from a backup, but I want to have a guide to all the mods I made to customize the system. So when I backup my data (usi...

Re: Inbound file transfers very slow. Outbound are fine.

So what I did was plug in a good Intel external NIC and all the slow speed issues went away. My guess is that Centos 7 configures the driver for the RealTek RT8111H incorrectly (or more likely, the information Centos.org is given from Realtek is sketchy). It's not worth my time to debug further. ( A...

Re: Inbound file transfers very slow. Outbound are fine.

Fair enough - I see the same slow inbound performance using old-style FTP. Thanks!

New CentOS7 PC can't be discovered on WIN7 LAN network [Solved]

Hi - I built a new CentOS 7.3 machine, and yum updated (so I guess I'm at 7.4). I have a bunch of WIN7 PCs, and an older Centos 5 machine on my network. On the Centos 6 machine I have samba configured so that the machine appears in Windows alongside my other windows 7 machines. I installed Samba on ...

Re: What tool can I use for Image backup of CentOS7 (IFL doesn't work).

I tried the command as you gave it - didn't do anything. There probably is a way to configure dd to do a compressed image backup. Although - there's a lot of suggestion on the web that if my disk did die, I'd want to re-install the latest O/S. So I'm thinking about a tar cvfz of the /etc area (so I ...

Re: Inbound file transfers very slow. Outbound are fine.

For purposes of testing, I have a CentOS5 system, a CentOS7 system, and a WIN7PC on the same LAN (all connected to the same switch). No firewalls except I didn't bother to disable WIN7 firewall as it's not in the way. WIN7 <-> Centos5 No speed issues WIN7 <-> Centos7 Slow TO centos7, Fast to Win7 Ce...
