UniFi Controller Setup Wizard 1
If you’re running the Ubiquiti UniFi Controller on a Linux box (I run mine on CentOS), the default instructions from UBNT walk you through building a simple SysV init script to run the Java .jar file as a service. I was in a tinkering mood, so I re-wrote the SysV startup script on my […]

If you’re looking for the fastest and easiest way to get DMARC verification working on a RedHat (Fedora, RHEL or CentOS) mail server, I highly recommend OpenDMARC.

Here’s the scenario: you’ve set up Dynamically Allocated Storage for the hard drive on your Guest VM in VirtualBox and you’ve run out of space — even though your Actual Size is smaller than the Virtual Size (this happened to me recently when my Virtual Size was 10 GB, and […]

CentOS 7 was released recently, and so I fired up my build VM so I could attempt to build the OpenDKIM package for submission to EPEL. But the compile barfs on strlcat/strlcopy, because RHEL/CentOS doesn’t have libbsd available (yet?). The libbsd package was a requirement for the package to work […]

Postfix 2.9 Upgrade 6
I’ve previously written a how-to for compiling Postfix from source on a CentOS 5 box. I recently tried following the same steps on a CentOS 6 box, to upgrade from Postfix 2.6.6 which is installed by default. I’m glad to report that the same instructions will work just fine to upgrade […]

Backup... TO THE CLOUD! 8
I often say there are only two types of data: data that is backed up, and data that is waiting to be lost. Even if you’re the most contentious hax0r who always backs up your data, if your backups are stored in the same physical location as the source data, […]

This blog post builds on the same workaround explained in my older post about how to install the 32-bit version of Dell OMSA 6.3 on a 64-bit version of RHEL / CentOS 5.5 on a PowerEdge server so you can manage a PERC 4 RAID adapter. Dell’s newer OMSA 6.4 […]

UPDATE 7/11/15: The following procedure will work on RHEL/CentOS 7, 6, and 5 systems to upgrading from those systems’ default versions to Postfix 3.02. CentOS (a non-commercial clone of RedHat’s RHEL) is my server operating system of choice because it’s extremely stable and widely-used. One of the reasons it’s so stable is […]

The current (as of this writing) versions of Dell’s OpenManage Server Administration software (OMSA) isn’t backward compatible with older hardware like the Dell PowerEdge 2650. However, if you want to install OMSA on a PE2650, you’re in luck. Using the Dell Linux Repository, you can have OpenManage 5.5 (which is plenty […]

Since the default version of ImageMagick installed by yum on CentOS 5.5 is  6.2.something, and you want to be able to do all the cool stuff that ImageMagick 6.5.* and 6.6.* can do, you’re gonna have to compile it from source yourself. Don’t worry – it’s easy, and it works.
