comment How can I copy a LVM logical volume to a loopback file on another system?
Nothing in dmesg but there is this in /var/log/messages: Aug 9 16:38:18 target-system kernel: hfs: unable to find HFS+ superblock. Going to try creating the snapshot per answer below.

comment The instance created from EBS snapshot fails to launch
FYI: The system log sometimes takes a while to appear as available in the console. I've had it take up to 30.

comment Plesk not working after restart?
You can go to the license page in the web console and try to refresh the license. Sometimes it's not available / reachable at boot but can be manually refreshed later.

comment Restricting output to only allow localhost using iptables
In this case since I'd prefer for the blocked outbound traffic to be REJECTed and not DROPped and since REJECT is not a valid default policy I have that rule. In any case, that part isn't relevant to my question regarding localhost.

comment Difference between scp and sftp
I think his point was that SFTP is not simply a secured version of the FTP protocol but a different protocol entirely.

comment How can I verify that an RTMP stream URL is working?
The version of VLC on my system doesn't seem to support RTMP however this solution should probably work otherwise. Thanks.

comment Munin node not listing any plugins on new Fedora 14 installation
You got it! The kicker here is that the hostname no longer has uppercase characters but it did by default at installation time. I verified that the hostname currently is all lowercase but when I connect via telnet it shows an uppercase hostname. I'm guessing it was saved somewhere. I had to override this in the /etc/munin/munin-node.conf via the host_name directive.

comment Munin node not listing any plugins on new Fedora 14 installation
I edited my question to show the output of munin-node-configure. No errors and the default plugins show as being used. Permissions on the plugins match those on my other system as well.

comment How do I correct replicaiton on the primary master after reconfiguring replication in a MySQL-MMM cluster?
OK, we found that the dbs were in sync so we just needed to get the current log & coordinates from db2 and start slave on db1.

comment How do I correct replicaiton on the primary master after reconfiguring replication in a MySQL-MMM cluster?
The db1 server does have a duplicate key error from when replication initially broke. I have verified that the databases are now replicating properly from db1 and are identical using checksums I just need to restart replication on db1, right? What value do I set the log / position to?

comment Remote Monitoring for Status of MySQL-MMM Monitoring Host
The problem with this is that mmm_control needs to be run as root and I don't want to SSH as root from PHP. I suppose I could add a non-privileged user to the sudoers list only giving them the ability to run "mmm_control show" with NOPASSWD but this seems like a bit of overkill. I'm still thinking there's got to be a better way.

comment compare tar content with local folder
The problem is you're not using -f so tar isn't using your tar file as input as you're expecting.

comment Allow shell access from one ip only
I'm assuming the question asker doesn't know how to set up public key authentication yet so they may want "PermitRootLogin yes" instead so they can actually log in with a password.
