comment Crontab - Unusual config - Skip a small weekly time window
Blah, you can tell it's been a long week... even longer that I am trying to add an extra day. There is no 7, only 0-6, so your answer makes more sense, check edit to OP.

comment Puppet - 2.7.x - Set SGID
Hmmm good point. I tried from /root/_temp/puppet, and still got drwxr-sr-x. on the dir.

comment Puppet - 2.7.x - Set SGID
Weird, I failed to mention that mode was being pulled from a hiera yaml file. When I added quotes around the 0755 in the config, everything started working as expected. Although it still doesn't explain my test similation behavior.

Ran both and didn't see anything out of the ordinary. Added some notes to op.

comment Puppet - 2.7.x - Set SGID
Still not sure why mine isn't working, as the mode is being set via file directive with no upstream default, but as you have demonstrated, puppet 2.7 does support numeric SGID, so accepting answer. Thanks again.

What the heck... Hmmm quite possible it may be upstream. Thanks I'll see if I can sniff it out. For now I just did a separate Exec call and seems to work.

comment Linux - NTP stopped working after recent update
ntpd 4.2.6p5. Sorry not sure what you mean, do I add the restrict source line just once? or for every pool server listed?

comment Linux - NTP stopped working after recent update
@dfc: Weird... I ran ntpq -pn on all the local nodes and they are all favoring the local server (127.127.1.0), whereas they used to favor the local ntp server (10.0.0.3). Wonder if the kod (without limited) caused the issue? Before the update I used to see chatter between the local ntp server and nodes, but now, nothing, just log entries on the nodes.

Damn, your right that was it. Must have removed it by accident for some reason.

Could you convert to an answer with more information about the acronyms you stated, and why they are relevant?

comment How to Configure Secure Connectivity between Multiple Subnets
In the example you gave you have -a 10.254.10.1, the 10.x is a class A non-routable range correct? I assumed that the supernode was able to store the gateway information so it knows how to reach that node.

comment How to Configure Secure Connectivity between Multiple Subnets
Why? It makes more sense to me to have each edge node register the internal, assigned ip address with the supernode, not have an actual ip address, then a different ip address just for the n2n to work.

The eth0:0 alias allows for the server to be on the 10.0.0.0/18 network as the primary eth0 config is assigned a static ip via linode.

comment How to Configure Secure Connectivity between Multiple Subnets
I cloned the n2n_v2_fork version, and followed the rpm build instructions given via the INSTALL file, and it appears the version is 2.1.0-1, which is the same version available via epel repo. You mentioned that you setup a supernode and a single edge node, as I mentioned in my latest update I setup supernode and edge node on one server (diff ports: 55555, 55554) and edge node on another subnet. But was unable to get the two to ping each other. All while iptables was off, and router on subnet1 was pinholed to allow incoming udp traffic to 55554.

Is that the same version as available via epel? The version I tried to work with on this project is 2.1.0-1.el6
