comment Difference between RH-Firewall-1-INPUT and INPUT
The RH-Firewall-1-INPUT chain was indeed removed with EL6. However, I cannot find any mention of this in the Release Notes. Does anyone have a link to the authoritative documentation stating the RH-Firewall-* should be replaced with INPUT? This is the source of much confusion for EL6 admins.

comment List of packages for RH 5.x
RH 5.3, 5.4, and 5.4 Beta are very old versions of RHEL 5. The latest available version of RHEL5, and the only version that should be used these days, is RHEL5.11. Anything older has missed out on security and stability updates and is at risk of being hacked. Consider a move to RHEL6 or RHEL7, which are the new versions of RHEL.

comment Changing network boot order (pxe) using ipmitool
> It is very,very rare there are multiple physical Ethernets on a server that support IPMI. I'm not sure what you mean by this. Every Intel and Supermicro server that I've had has two NICs on the back. NIC0 does the PXE by default.

comment Changing network boot order (pxe) using ipmitool
Using Supermicro X8 & X9 motherboards, you cannot specify the interface. You can only tell the system to PXEboot, and it will PXEboot in the order specified in the BIOS. You can reorder the PXEboot order in the BIOS, and change/disable which interfaces provide PXE, but that's all I've been able to do.

comment famd/gamin timeout issue with courier-imap
Okay. Our experimentation shows that we can reduce the number of errors by disabling IMAP_ENHANCEDIDLE, possibly disabling TLS_CACHEFILE & TLS_CACHESIZE (This is suggested in the config file). This issue also seems to be resource related, so we're looking at more general resource tweaks.

Tonin, did you ever figure out the answer to this? We're running into a similar error. CentOS 6, VMware ESXi, Courier IMAP. No obvious load issues.

comment What is the difference between syslog, rsyslog and syslog-ng?
I would argue that both syslog-ng and rsyslog are 'next gen', or at least the newer replacement for the older syslog. Both are comparable in terms of features, but the syntax for both is very different. syslog-ng has it's own unique syntax, while rsyslog's syntax is more like the older syslog syntax.
