Patching CentOS

all, Management doens't care for "I patched it" every 2 weeks. They are looking for reports with release dates, reboot times, severity etc from CentOS like the Windows guys have from wSUS. So CentOS doesn't seem to have yum security options Redhat does. Is there a trick to this I am missing? Alterna...

PCI On default passwords

All, We have a requirement to monitor for default username/password combinations left on our boxes. Just wondering how you all are handling this? Any open source tools? I was pretty much going to write a giant SSH in a loop thing. But thought there might be a smarter (free) way of doing this. Bonus ...

Shell Script Templates

hello, I am having a hard time managing CRON. Looking to see what tools centOS has for this. Basically right now I am manually updating and documenting, what appears to be 100s of various CRON jobs. The syntax and logging on these is all over the place. There are jobs moving files, which don't exist...

Re: Disk Performance on Vmware

We have had this running for some time and have noticed staggering reduction is in IO against our virtual infrastructure. So far no issues to speak of. We're still only using this for disposable servers. But it's worked out great.

Bash Script Management

Hey guys and gals, Super off topic here. But looking for a good input/feedback on this. Basically I’ve recently took over administration of a large dev environment of CentOS servers and slowly and steadily trying to make things neater around here. I gotta admit to being a little over my head but slo...

Basic Patching Script

Hello, I have a few low importance utility servers running CentOS 6.6 x64 .They are basically just used as SSH jump boxes and a few little utilities installed here and there. I'd like them to just go ahead and patch themselves when ever they feel like it. I really don't care if they break, go down o...

Re: Starting Selinux on CentOS 6.4

Thanks everyone for jumping in here. Out kickstart did indeed break selinux before it ever was able to set itself up. Here is how I back fixed the problem. sed -i s/SELINUX=disabled/SELINUX=permissive/ /etc/selinux/config rm /etc/sysconfig/selinux ln -s /etc/selinux/config /etc/sysconfig/selinux tou...

Re: Disk Performance on Vmware

Just wanted to give a little follow up here. Seeing major improvements in IO so far no issues having to rebuild machines. We did have to FSCK some machines after an ESXi host died. So far so good.

Thanks for everyone's input.
