Re: Uncompression error -- system halted

Thanks for all the replies. Something else must have become corrupt on the root file system at some point, which is either used to build the initial ramdisk or was part of the initial ramdisk's files. I performed a fresh format/reinstall of 7.4 and upgraded the kernel and the system boots fine. *shr...

Re: Uncompression error -- system halted

Interesting. For background, is this a virtual machine or real hardware? Is there some sort of an exotic CPU or other exotic hardware involved? Real hardware, not a virtual machine. A Dell Precision T7610. When you boot the old kernel, try to regenerate the iniramfs. Most probably something is wron...

Forcing local DNS server resolution

What would the iptables rule be for me to redirect any DNS queries which originate on my network to resolve on external DNS servers to one of my internal DNS servers? E.g. if I have an IOT device which uses a hard-coded DNS server, how can I redirect, on my router, any queries sent to a DNS server o...

Re: gssproxy/gss failure spamming AD

Bump.

Anyone?

For the moment, I removed the nfs-server and nfs-client conf files in /etc/gssproxy, which seems to eliminate the error... but I have no idea why it is occurring on this machine to begin with, since I do not use kerberos authentication with nfs at all anywhere.

gssproxy/gss failure spamming AD

Not sure if this belongs under networking or under security. For about 6 months I've had a series of my Centos 7 servers configured with realmd / sssd to allow user authentication against my active directory domain. This has worked exceptionally well with little problems. The past few days, a few se...

ifcfg-ethXXX files "generated by dracut initrd"

My /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethXXX files are being overwritten at boot by dracut.

This problem is apparently reported on the Redhat site:

https://access.redhat.com/solutions/3017441


does anyone know what the "solution" is? Running 7.4 w/ all the latest updates applied.

Re: iptables to allow PPTP connection from Windows client to remote server

temporary workaround is to add to sysctl.conf net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_helper = 1 or, to make more "permanent" echo "options nf_conntrack nf_conntrack_helper=1" >> /etc/modprobe.d/local.conf this allows iptables to make the necessary helpers automatically from the rules. Would appreciate feedback ...

Re: iptables to allow PPTP connection from Windows client to remote server

another 6 hours of googling and trying random things has yielded no fruit. Things sure seem a heck of a lot different now with IPTables than years ago when I set up my firewall at work with it. Unfortunately, it seems things have changed quite a bit with the more recent kernels and most of those pos...
