Re: Firewalld is not running

The file /etc/dbus-1/system.d/FirewallD.conf on my system only permits root to own org.fedoraproject.FirewallD1 and its configuration file. What then is 'Connection ":1.757"'? This is the point at which DBus experts are needed, I've never fiddled with it.

Re: Firewalld is not running

You'll need to look at the full line systemctl -l status firewalld, but

Code: Select all

May 19 13:51:51 server firewalld[20052]: ERROR: Exception DBusException: org...e
will be the problem. I'm no DBus expert, so others may need to step in once you have the full error message.

Re: Mounting remote share through nfs

From my notes: Network is unreachable Don't believe this automatically, it may be due to the order in which IPv4 and IPv6 are tried. Diagnose as follows: # mount -t nfs4 tamar.home:/inst /inst -v mount.nfs4: timeout set for Mon Mar 6 18:37:07 2017 mount.nfs4: trying text-based options 'addr=192.168....

Re: Question about /var/log files

(simultaneous edit) Although I've not seen this issue on my machines, the explanation is quite straightforward. Sensitive messages are written to /var/log/secure as they occur, in the present case the last one was written on the tenth. At that time it's fairly obvious that the file was modified, so ...

Re: CentOS newbie errors with OS startup

First off, a couple of tricks when dealing with problems like this: When you get to the splash screen, try CTRL/ALT/F2 to get a basic terminal. Delete rhgb and quiet from the boot command, typically linux16 in /boot/grub2/grub.cfg , but YMMV. Next, notice that the error is "failed cannot start NFS s...

Re: Get data from other drives after install

I've had an off-the-wall and untested thought: can you create a VM, install Windows and then mount the disks pass-through? I don't know the answer, so if anyone else can contribute to this or tell me it's rubbish, feel free to do so.
