I am upgrading my current colo'd server from a 1U dual core xeon with 2x500GB drives to a 2U core 2 quad with 8x750GB drives (raid5).So far I have ran into two issues. One is the rails are too large for the cabinets (problem #1 which I put in another thread). The only other problem is I am having problems with remote console on the new hardware.
It should be setup correctly since I basically rsync'd everything from the old server to the new one. The device is detected:
root@houkouonchi: 03:19 AM :~# dmesg | grep -i tty Command line: root=/dev/sda2 gpt pci=nomsi console=tty0 console=ttyS0,9600 notsc Kernel command line: root=/dev/sda2 gpt pci=nomsi console=tty0 console=ttyS0,9600 notsc console [tty0] enabled console [ttyS0] enabled serial8250: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A 00:05: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
But when I connect to the digi I am not getting any console output. I have tried a different serial -> Ethernet adapter and tried a different patch cable/port on the digi so I am pretty sure those are fine. The motherboard (nforce 650i chipset) didn't have an onboard serial port so I am using a port hooked up to a bracket which has a ribbon cable which connects to the motherboards COM port. I also tested another serial connector which the case has built in and both give me problems.
Since some days I have the strange issue that all logings from DrWeb is shown directly into the console. For example if I connect to my Server via SSH and then I sned an email to my email accoutn I see the logging of the spool.
root@************:~# 2015 Mar 25 16:44:57 * 127.0.0.1  /var/spool/drweb/spool/drweb.tmp.tWcneM - archive MAIL 2015 Mar 25 16:44:57 * 127.0.0.1  >/var/spool/drweb/spool/drweb.tmp.tWcneM/3.part - Ok 2015 Mar 25 16:44:57 * 127.0.0.1  >/var/spool/drweb/spool/drweb.tmp.tWcneM/4.part - Ok 2015 Mar 25 16:44:57 * 127.0.0.1  >/var/spool/drweb/spool/drweb.tmp.tWcneM/5.reexport - Ok 2015 Mar 25 16:44:57 * 127.0.0.1  /var/spool/drweb/spool/drweb.tmp.tWcneM - Ok
this happens in my root shell. if I disable the Email check then this will not happen anymore. another strange issue is that if I restart drweb and I have more than 1 ssh shell open I see the output of the restart on all shells, this issue is only for drweb not for any other service. How to config drweb to log only into logfile not to the console?
I search the web and the only thing I can find was
In the FreeBSD operating system, syslog service can intercept information output by Dr.Web Daemon to the console. In this case, the information is logged character-by-character. That occurs when the logging level is set to *.info in the syslog configuration file (syslog.conf).
i have setup fresh Centos 6.5 with Plesk Pannel 12.0.18. When i execute the attached command from the console, i get it work, some posts are auto created within wordpress. When i enter the attached command within Plesk (Tools / Settings - Taskmanager - root New Task, the command is not executed...
"What anti-virus do you use on your postfix email server powered by Plesk?".Is there an anti-virus program that can be installed on Plesk version 12.0.18 as an extension or component? I need it primarily for protection of incoming email from malware.I've seen in Add or Remove Components in the Mail hosting features that I have installed Kaspersky antivirus, but I didn't seen anywhere that it actually can be configured from within Plesk. It also, as far as I can see, doesn't do anything. what is Kaspersky antivirus used for in Plesk and how can I configure it?
I searched but I haven't found anything. I need a server/client software to monitor all my Linux VPS/Servers. Do you know anything easy to use and install. I want to have a main server that verifys all the others.
I have bought an Intel SR2500LX server chassis with a S5000PAL mainboard running Centos. This system has an active backplane with a LSI MegaRaid chipset.
I'd like to be notified in the case of a drive failure but I'm totally stumped on how to get any monitoring working.
The only raid managment utility Intel supplies is a Java based monstrosity, which needs X-Windows to run and needs to be run continuously in order for the email notification to work.
Web based management can only be used from the same subnet as the server, so that's not very useful either.
I've contacted Intel support which gave me the advice to reboot the server and use the Bios utility if I want to check the Raid arrays consistency . Needless to say I'm very dissapointed, this server has every redundancy feature you can think of but it seems impossible to monitor the Raid under Linux.
Does anybody have experience with the Chassis and Raid monitoring under Linux?
I'm asking if there is a server monitoring tool that has easy install steps for Parallels Plesk 12.0.18 Upd #36 or any guide since my server is running slow and I need to collect some data in order to fix the issue.
I've tried Munin on my own but got this error during install process:
Transaction Check Error:

I have an AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 3000+ machine thats running Linux - CentOS.
I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good server/hardware monitoring script or app that will allow monitoring of the following items in real time. Also I'd like to log and view the historical data. A script that stores this data in mysql database would be ideal.

I've noticed on some rackmount servers and firewall appliances there are ports labelled console, and look like serial ports. Are these related to connecting to KVM? I am looking for a cheap appliance for some rackmount servers I have (1U half depth would be ideal), to remotely recover the server if it goes down. I figured they'd connect through PS2 connectors, but then I thought that if the console port was related, then going through that might have the option for power cycling or something.
I'm trying to knock a bug out of our new Hardy Heron Xen template. Basically when the old ones boot up /bin/sh is spawned on the console. Now with Hardy init has been replace with /etc/event.d handling.
So I've replace /etc/event.d/ttyS0 and ttyS1 (not sure which one is the console but I think ttyS0)
Code: # tty0 - shell
# This service maintains a getty on tty1 from the point the system is # started until it is shut down again.
start on stopped rc2 start on stopped rc3 start on stopped rc4 start on stopped rc5
stop on runlevel 0 stop on runlevel 1 stop on runlevel 6
What type of cable/settings are needed to access the console port of a ProCurve 2626 J4900A? the recent one I ordered wasnt working with the regular way I access these switches.
I use a null modem (crossover) female-female serial console cable and connect it to my laptop serial port w/9600-8-1-None to access my ProCurve 2900 48G series.
But I tried using a straight/null/rollover(cisco's) and none of them worked. I also tried 9800-8-1-xoff/xon. All of them are giving me weird text when I press [ENTER] numerous times. I can access my 2900 series switches fine, no problem, just these 2626 ones I cant. My laptop can definitely detect the port cause when I disable it, I get a message on my terminal window which says "disconnected". So I am messing up somewhere.
By the way, I actually returned the switch when it came the first time because I thought they gave me a faulty one and I got another one, but it behaves the same way. But the actual switch functionality has no issues as I can assign my servers IPs and be able to access them remotely. I just cant configure the switch itself without the console port.
I was able to login from IPMI View just fine, and everything works as expected except "Text Console ". I was able to hit the start button and get the black screen on IPMI View, but that was just about it.
Only a cursor blinking without texts.
Is there something else that I should do in order to get text console working? I've tried all baud rates.
We have a windows 2003 machine that is currently responding properly to all services that it's running (including IIS and FTP), however RDP connections just close right away and the server isn't responding when a local keyboard & monitor is plugged in.
The last thing that I want to do is pull the power out while it's on - any ideas?
I tried a remote shutdown, but the response is: C:Users>shutdown /r /m HOSTNAME HOSTNAME: The entered computer name is not valid or remote shutdown is not supported on the target computer. Check the name and then try again or contact your system administrator.(53)
