Re: Increase filesystem size

First, a general comment: Google is unreliable. Next another comment: Google tells you fibs. ... and finally: Never trust Google. The best place to go for information is the man page or else the Red Hat books. So Google tells you: xfs_growfs -L 200G /root does it. Hmm, if you do that you'll not see ...

Re: Increase filesystem size

You've extended the partition but not the filesystem. You need something like xfs_growfs or resize2fs.

Re: CentOS is dead, time to bury the corpse

As Trevor and Atifak say, C7 is not dead yet. It's now in maintenance mode only however so only expect security- and bug-fixes. Alternatives: Alma (RHEL rebuild) Rocky (ditto) Springdale (and again) Fedora (worth considering) OpenSuSE (different, but designed for big machines/servers as well as desk...

Re: help voor KVM network bridge.

During testing for the CentOS replacement I had about 10 VMs available in my machine on a bridge. In the past I've even had Windows 10 running as a VM. I use the routed approach so that the VMs are visible to other machines on my network. I'm going to try and include a writeup from my personal Wiki ...

Re: automatic update centos 6.5

If your machine is not allowed to connect to the internet for security reasons, then you probably shouldn't do it, ever. If you are running a 6.5 machine you shouldn't connect to the internet, ever. Do as Tunk suggests (btw, Tunk is a long term contributor to this forum and knows what he's talking a...

Re: Never any mail messsages

Yes, there are a few of chains, eg: mailer-daemon>postmaster>root , ftpadm>ftp>root and www>webmaster>root , so root should end up with everything unless you make changes. Can you try as an ordinary user: $mail root Subject: test test EOT and then as root: # mail <username> Subject: test test EOT ? ...

Re: Never any mail messsages

No. You only need to unhash it if you are going to use the line to direct root's mail to someone else. whilst on the subject, have a look at the other lines, they should mostly send the various standard system names to root.

Re: Never any mail messsages

Have you checked /etc/aliases ? Typically the bottom two lines of the default file read: # Person who should get root's mail #root: marc but if that last line has been uncommented then root's mail will be diverted. Likewise look out for /root/.forward (note the dot). It may contain a line similar to...

So long, and thanks for all the fish

I've upgraded my C7 server to Alma and moved virtually everything off the C8 test VM onto Alma. A couple of hiccoughs but as major upgrades go, not too bad. Thanks to all the developers and forum support over the years. I'll keep an eye on the forum for a while, but I'm afraid that's me out of the C...
