RPM package of DRACd -------------------- DRACd version : 1.11 rpm package release: 6rm Release date : Mon Jul 16 2001 1. Packaging The package was built and tested in a Red Hat Linux 6.2 system with every relevant official errata published by Red Hat applied. The version of rpm used is 3.0.5 (more specifically, the version of official errata http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/RHEA-2000-051.html, note that I'm not yet using the recently published official update of rpm to version 4.0.2). IMPORTANT: It is recommended to download the source rpm and rebuild it with: # rpm --rebuild <dracd-x.x.x-x.src.rpm> This is specially true if you are going to use it under RHL 7 or 7.1. The package is GPG signed. You can download My GPG public key from: http://rmrpms.tripod.com/RM-GPG-KEY or from http://www.rmorales.com.ar/RM-GPG-KEY 2. Configuration The initscript has been modified to allow configuration of the server using a file that is preserved between updates of the package. The file is /etc/sysconfig/drac, and the two parameters you can set are: EXPIRE_TIME: Specifies the expire time limit (the number of minutes the entries will remain in the database). DBFILE: Specifies the db file where the relay authorization map is maintained (seldom changed from the default value). Example (and default values in the file installed by the rpm package): EXPIRE_TIME=30 DBFILE=/etc/mail/dracd.db NOTE: Remember to restart the DRAC daemon after modifying /etc/sysconfig/drac 3. To do list - Try to write some lines about security implications of using portmap and how to to tight the configuration to minimize them. 4. Feedback Please send any comments, rants, bug-reports, etc. about the package or this file to rmrpms at usa dot net. // -- end of file ---
