It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

IPPROCS or OPPROCS greater than 0 in a queue prevents normal termination of queue manager by “endmqm QmgrName” (Need to use: endmqm -i QmgrName)


You notice that when the WebSphere MQ (WMQ) queue attributes of IPPROCS or OPPROCS are greater than 0, and try to end the queue manager by issuing “endmqm QmgrName”, then the queue manager goes into “quiescing” but it does not fully terminate.

KVM: How to resize (grow) an ext4 LVM VM

We use LVM both on the guest and the CentOS KVM host. Let’s upgrade from 5 GB to 15 GB on the guest.

CentOS & yum-cron: Automatic reboot after kernel update

If you’re using yum-cron and want to automatically reboot your CentOS box whenever the kernel gets updated you can add this code to /etc/cron.daily/0yum.cron right before exit 0 at the end:

entry=`cat /boot/grub/grub.conf | grep ‘^default’ | cut -d ‘=’ -f2` entry=`expr $entry + 1` if [ “`cat /boot/grub/grub.conf | grep ‘^title’ | tail […]

Backup storage: CentOS & QNAP & iSCSI

I’m using a CentOS 6 box as backup server running BackupPC. Until a couple days ago I had a Thecus N7700PRO NAS with 4x 3 TB discs configured as RAID5 which was accessed via iSCSI from the CentOS box. Then, 2 harddrives died at the same time (or not, at least that’s what the […]

CentOS: Fix broken yum repo metadata

EDIT: I AM the one who is stupid! Arrrrgh. Just installed Galera on yet another box and saw this passing by in yum:

A RANDOM PASSWORD HAS BEEN SET FOR THE MySQL root USER ! You will find that password in ‘/root/.mysql_secret’.

Arrrrghhhh. Apologies to the RPM packagers. EDIT END.

Stupid RPM packagers screwed […]

Disable IPv6 on Linux (CentOS)

Disable IPv6 on Linux (CentOS)

Just put this into /etc/sysctl.conf. No need to mess with the IPv6 modules.

net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1 net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1

And also inet_protocols = ipv4 in /etc/postfix/main.cf

Why would you want to do that? I have a rogue IPv6 router advertising going on in my network that I can’t block. That […]

AWS CentOS7 error countermeasure

If you type a command to check for errors, an error came out. When I typed a command to confirm the error, an error came out.
