A problem arose today which I have never seen before. I do not know what caused it and I do not know precisely how I fixed it. I am using Baclua 7.0.5 on FreeBSD 9.3 I found this email today: This is Bacula asking for more ‘tape’. I say tape, because that is an easy […]
I encountered this issue today on a FreeBSD 9.1-RELEASE-p4 system. The solution: freebsd-update fetch install and then a reboot.
Earlier today, I saw a bunch of emails like this: for <root@localhos>; Wed, 21 Jan 2015 20:32:36 +0000 (UTC) From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Bacula) Subject: Bacula: Copy Fatal Error of crey-fd Full Sender: email@example.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Wed, 21 Jan 2015 20:32:36 +0000 (UTC) Message-Id: <20150121203236.E993D2B28@bacula.example.org> X-Gm-Original-To: email@example.com 21-Jan 20:32 bacula-dir JobId 197313: Warning: FileSet MD5 digest […]
freebsd-update is a great tool. It reduces my workload. It’s hard to use it wrong, but I have managed to do so. So have other people. Yesterday, three of us encountered the same issue. We did it wrong. We didn’t do it wrong yesterday. We did it wrong months ago, and now it’s come back […]
Just a note for myself. I had this kind of thing in /etc/fstab so I could share one installation of plugins and themes for WordPress. /usr/local/wordress/plugins /usr/jails/freebsddiary.org/usr/local/www/wordpress/plugins nullfs ro,nosuid,noexec,late 0 0 /usr/local/wordress/themes /usr/jails/freebsddiary.org/usr/local/www/wordpress/themes nullfs ro,nosuid,noexec,late 0 0 /usr/local/wordress/plugins /usr/jails/news.freshports.org/usr/local/www/wordpress/plugins nullfs ro,nosuid,noexec,late 0 0 /usr/local/wordress/themes /usr/jails/news.freshports.org/usr/local/www/wordpress/themes nullfs ro,nosuid,noexec,late 0 0 Then I moved them to their […]
I have three APC PDU AP7900 and I’m about to dispose of one of them. I like to wipe the configuration from equipment prior to disposal. I could not recall the login details for any of my three PDUs. Fortunately, I still had the serial cable required to get into the console. I also had […]
The solution Here is the solution. You can stop reading now: ./check_email_delivery –smtp-server smtp.example.org –mailto firstname.lastname@example.org \ –mailfrom email@example.com \ –body ‘test, please ignore’ –imapssl \ –imap-server imap.example.org –username deltest –password secret That will test both delivery and receipt. There. Be gone. You don’t need the rest of this article. Thanks. Background As pointed out, […]
This is not the first time this has happened. It last happened about a month ago. Tonight it happened for a different reason. This time it wasn’t the size of the mbox (I’m not using mbox on this server). This time it’s the size of the log. $ ls -lha ~/.mailfilter.log* -rw-r–r– 1 dan dan […]
