comment Centos 6.6: [yum install *anything*] fails with [protected multilib error]
It is possible that a dependency has a 32-bit package installed also. I know, it is kind of a hassle.

comment Anyone know how to fix issues with omsa on red hat 5.1 that reports “No Controllers found”?
I have had this happen a lot recently, and it was semaphores. I found a script to kill ipcs from a specific user that worked to clear some out: stackoverflow.com/questions/2143404/…

comment Spacewalk, Kickstart, Cobbler, PXE, Dnsmasq
On our spacewalk 2.1 server, both cobbler20 and cobbler2 (and cobbler-loaders) is installed. It isn't called just cobbler, probably because it is an older version. I wouldn't install the newer version, just to be safe. I'm also not sure a newer version would give you anything else that you need.

comment Satellite 6's puppet is unable to find the hiera data sources
Ah, that makes sense. I have my hieradata in /etc/puppet/hieradata, which has a default context that hiera can read, but of course /var/lib doesn't.

comment Satellite 6's puppet is unable to find the hiera data sources
It is entirely possible that it is trying to user /etc/hiera.yaml instead of /etc/puppet/hiera.yaml. Everything I've seen has recommended linking /etc/hiera.yaml to /etc/puppet/hiera.yaml. I'm not saying that is the problem, but you could try that as a first step.

comment Mount CIFS share with autofs
Also, the credentials file must not have spaces between the equals signs. That caused a bunch of errors until I found that out. Two different pieces of documentation said different things.

As an interesting development, using this with an EMC device (not sure module) required me to remove the -N from the smbclient line. Encountered this problem today.

comment LVM2: pvscan with offset?
Everything I'm seeing suggests it would be easier to dd the disk into a file on another hard drive (in addition to being safer), then try to mount from the image.

comment LVM2: pvscan with offset?
This is the manpage to losetup on rhel6.5 dated 2003-07-01, from util-linux-ng rpm. As the man page is old it may not be that accurate. I've been looking for lvm information also...

comment LVM2: pvscan with offset?
I see according to the losetup man pages (rhel6.5) that it accepts both a physical device, and a data offset using the -o parameter. Did you try that?

comment How might I cancel scheduled downtime on Nagios
Looking further, more documentation says that reporting doesn't count scheduled downtime unless you also disable checks. Well.

comment How might I cancel scheduled downtime on Nagios
The documentation implies that it only ends the downtime earlier than the originally scheduled end, but that the downtime still stays for reporting. "If the downtime is currently in effect, the service will come out of scheduled downtime".

comment How might I cancel scheduled downtime on Nagios
If you are keeping track of downtime, an acknowledgement will affect the reports differently than scheduled downtime, so since this really is scheduled downtime, that is the more appropriate action.

comment Change partition and / or mounting CentOS 6.5
Yes, keeping it is fine, however, if he has everything allocated to / to begin with (not separating out /var or /usr or anything), how is keeping /home in with it any different? Still, he can create a new /home of 10g or something and mount it in place. Obviously this isn't an enterprise system, or it would have been allocated differently. I was just giving the easiest option given his apparent circumstances.

comment Change partition and / or mounting CentOS 6.5
Given the df output, /home doesn't have anything in it. You can probably just remove /home completely (parted or fdisk), and extend the lv_root lv using lvextend. Just make sure to create your home directory in the left over /home.
