As a system administrator acquires more and more systems to manage, automation of mundane tasks gets quite important. Many administrators adopted the way of writing custom scripts, that are simulating complex orchestration software. Unfortunately, scripts get obsolete, people who developed them leave, and without an enormous level of maintenance, after some time these scripts will end up unusable. It is certainly more desirable to share a system that everyone can use, and invest in tools that can be used regardless of one’s employer. For that we have several systems available, and in this howto you will learn how to use one of them – Puppet.
What is Puppet?
Puppet is an automation software for IT system administrators and consultants. It allows you to automate repetitive tasks such as the installation of applications and services, patch management, and deployments. Configuration for all resources are stored in so called “manifests”, that can be applied to multiple machines or just a single server. If you would like to know more information, The Puppet Labs site has a more complete description of what Puppet is and how it works.
Privilege separation is one of the fundamental security paradigms implemented in Linux and Unix-like operating systems. Regular users operate with limited privileges in order to reduce the scope of their influence to their own environment, and not the wider operating system.
A special user, called
root, has “super-user” privileges. This is an administrative account without the restrictions that are present on normal users. Users can execute commands with “super-user” or “root” privileges in a number of different ways.
In this article, we will discuss how to correctly and securely obtain root privileges, with a special focus on editing the
Repost: CentOS Linux Install and Configure NTP to Synchronize The System Clock
How do I install and configure NTP under CentOS Linux version 5.x or 6.x server to synchronize the system clock?
You can easily install NTP (Network Time Protocol, a means of transmitting time signals over a computer network) using the yum command under Red Hat or CentOS/Fedora Linux server or workstation based systems. You need to install the following packages:
- ntp : ntpd server which continuously adjusts system time and utilities used to query and configure the ntpd daemon.
- ntpdate : Utility to set the date and time via NTP.
- ntp-doc : NTP documentation
Procedure: Setup NTPD on CentOS Linux
Open the terminal or login over the ssh session. You must login as as the root user. Type the following yum command to install ntp
# yum install ntp ntpdate ntp-doc
Turn on service, enter:
# chkconfig ntpd on
Synchronize the system clock with 0.pool.ntp.org server (use this command only once or as required):
# ntpdate pool.ntp.org
Start the NTP server. The following will continuously adjusts system time from upstream NTP server. No need to run ntpdate:
# /etc/init.d/ntpd start
Configure ntpd (optional)
Edit /etc/ntp.conf, enter:
# vi /etc/ntp.conf
Set public servers from the pool.ntp.org project:
