comment Question marks showing in ls of directory. IO errors too
I have seen these question marks when autofs had issues mounting a directory. Shutting down autofs allowed me to delete the directory and try mounting manually which pointed to a permissions error on the remote server.

Thanks, this is good to know.

comment Need to know how IPv6 was disabled
I mentioned the /etc/sysctl setting to the person that setup the server and that rang a bell. They found a bunch of sysctl settings they had modified but had since forgotten about.

comment Daemon process exiting when shell closes
That was it. An older version of sudo worked. I tried upgrading to the latest version of sudo, no luck. The su command also worked and is likely the approach we will take.

No luck with </dev/null. Tried it in several incantations. Also tried moving the nohup inside the sudo.

@Massimo Nope, the process is not getting launched in a bash shell. Even if it were the huponexit is set to false on both machines.

By before, I mean, at the beginning of the line, not as a separate line.

comment Daemon process exiting when shell closes
The actual daemon log file (specified as part of the $BROKER_OPTIONS) prints a shutdown message after the 20 seconds has elapsed. This is the same shutdown message I would get if I were to kill the process.

I changed it to redirect to a logfile, no output. I get command not found when I try to run sestatus so I assume that means SELinux is not enabled.

Nope. I changed the script to use nohup before the line I posted above and that had no effect.

The process we call is supposed to start itself up as a daemon, it should not need to be called with nohup. Reinforcing this fact is that our old servers call the process in the exact same way and don't suffer from this issue. Similar to calling service ntpd start.

Well, the fixtime.pl script didn't indicate anything wrong but another test did and it magically fixed everything. Weird...

I stopped ntp and ran the fixtime.pl script mentioned in that question and it reported "No leap, yay"

Thanks! I had to give the check to the other answer for providing the link, but this information was good too!

comment web server protection
You say you're not building a web server. Are you building a web application? The security concerns of an application are going to be quite a bit different than the security concerns of a server.
