FreeBSD routing problem

2013-10-03 Thread hrkesh sahu
Hi All,

I am facing a routing issue for the Interoperability  1.5 topology.

Please find the attachment of the exact topology map.



As per test setup –

Ø  Configured REF-Router2 NOT to transmit  Router Advertisement on
Network1. But REF-Router2 is able to transmit Router Advertisement on
Network2 with 2001:db8::3::/64 .

Ø  Configured a static route on TAR-RouterD ( ubuntu) Indicating
REF-Router2’s Link local address as the next hop for the Network2 .

Ø  But Ref-Router Not able to routes between Network1 and Network2.  Due to
this ICMPv6 request from TAR-router to the global address of REF-Host2 is
not working. There is no reply for this ICMPv6 request.

Ø  Same when I try to transmit ICMPv6 Echo request from REF-HOST2 to global
address of TAR-HOST1( Prefix of TAR-RouterD), no ICMPv6 reply.

Ø  Within Network1 , nodes are able to communicate. But when I try to
communicate Netwrok2 from Network1, it is not working.



Could you please suggest tell me if I am missing something to route the
traffic on REF-Router ?



I suspect  , as there is no Route Advertisement on Interface1 of the
Ref-Router, it is not able to route the traffic between the interfaces.



Please help me to find this solution.

9.1 - 9.2 upgrade, clang question

2013-10-03 Thread dweimer
When upgrading from 9.1 to 9.2 using source, is there any benefit to 
rebuilding twice, due to the clang version change?  So that the second 
buildworld/kernel is done from the updated clang 3.3, instead of the 
clang 3.1 that was in FreeBSD 9.1?

During the buildworld first new compiler is built and then this new 
compiler is used to build everything else.


There may be other reasons to double build though... Maybe after 
cleaning system with `make delete-old`/`make delete-old-libs`?

Re: Soekris for a Trac server

2013-10-03 Thread Michael
Hello Bill,

thank you for your answer!

Bill Tillman wrote:
 The way technology has moved on these days I would approach this from a
 completely different manner. Soekris makes some cool little boxes, but the
 last time I looked they still had I486 cpu's...today may be different, 
 probably
 is. My point is that with computers so cheap these days why not just use
 a box, sans the drives and do a diskless boot from one of your FreeBSD
 servers...or better yet, setup another FreeBSD server using VM. It doesn't
 make sense to buy a box with VM technology so freely available.
Of course you are right that virtualisation is the cheapest way to go.
But this my actual setup and I am considering moving it to a physical
support because for my uses, I value some of its features (low-noise™ or
take-away™).

Best regards,

zfs over geli over zfs (was: Re: zfs flag denoting unclean shutdown?)

2013-10-03 Thread Nikos Vassiliadis

On 10/02/2013 08:13 PM, Matthew Seaman wrote:

On 02/10/2013 16:34, Nikos Vassiliadis wrote:

Is there a way to know if a zfs pool had an unclean shutdown?
An attribute or maybe something during mount time similar to what ufs
does (WARNING: / was not properly dismounted)?


Other than looking at the system logs for evidence of an abnormal
shutdown, no.  (Absence of anything in the logs is pretty good evidence
for the system falling over pretty hard... Usually something to do with
the power being turned off.)

However, due to the design of ZFS unclean shutdowns like this are
nowhere near as problematic as on UFS.  Basically, you're guaranteed
that what is written on disk is always consistent.  You might lose a few
transactions -- essentially the last few seconds of file system activity
-- but that doesn't usually make a great deal of difference after the
system reboots again.  Oh, yeah -- absolutely no time will be needed to
be spent cleaning and repairing filesystems: with ZFS, reboot after
crash is as fast as a normal reboot.


Thanks Matthew, I realized I should have used a more appropriate 
subject. I'll explain what my actual goal is:)


I am after a really specific use-case and the last minute transactions 
are important. Using a zpool over geli over a zvol. I'd like to know if 
during shutdown the kernel flushes all zfs files caches in order so 
these last minutes transactions won't be lost. The unmounting order is 
far from obvious (zfs over geli over zfs) and i wonder if such a scheme 
will succeed. I can't afford losing the last transactions of my home dir 
every time i shutdown my laptop;)


The obvious solution is to create two slices and dedicate a slice to 
geli. Like this:

mypool lives on slice1
myencpool lives on slice2.eli

I am after this:
mypool lives on slice1
myencpool lives on /dev/zvol/mypool/avolume.eli

The second scheme will allow me to have an encypted home and not to 
pre-allocate space. A quick test showed that it might work... On the 
other hand conceptually seems like a very bad idea haha.


I think I've heard people doing this zfs over geli over zfs before...

Thanks for any thoughts, Nikos

Problem with IPSec setup

2013-10-03 Thread fbsd-mbox

Hello.

Does anyone have a clue why kernel always directs ESP packets via 
default route (or default gateway in FIB 0), even if there are other 
FIBs with per-interface routes?


I'm stuck with the gateway, which is connected to 2 ISPs and the 
necessity to configure IPSec tunnels on both external channels. Using 
setfib(8) I've managed to successfully establish an IKE session via both 
channels (using a separate instance of racoon per each channel), but the 
tunnel is just not working.

Using IPFW's setfib option does not make any difference.

Is this a bug or I'm missing some point?

9.1 - 9.2 upgrade

I just did an upgrade using freebsd-update to 9.2.  This system uses a custom

noticed that /usr/src/UPDATING has not been updated.  The first entry still

 Please advice me as to how to get the desktop working again on these

 Try the '-R' again; it may get a bit farther each time.

 You can always recover by removing some of the ports and reinstalling
 them after the remaining ports are updated. You're going to have to
 rebuild a huge number of ports anyway, so this is not very different
 from using portmaster on everything.

 Good luck.

Have tried that, but it rebuilds pixman, but then X bombs out blurting
out messages that libpixman.so is missing :(

I have tried to remove print/texlive-scheme-full; removed it, but then
run portmaster -R pixman, and portmaster -r pixman and the running of
it stops with message that !#/bin/sh .. argument too long and comes up
with texlive-?-?-_1 or similar.  Have not been successful in
fixing this issue.  I have 2 machines working and 2 not working
because of this.  I am running out of ideas.  Is there another way to
fix this issue manually, i.e, going to /usr/ports/x11/pixman and
rebuilding it there or have to go one by one?

Thanks for your advice and suggestions but I am not getting there :(

 I just did an upgrade using freebsd-update to 9.2.  This system uses a

 However, I noticed that /usr/src/UPDATING has not been updated.  The first 
 entry still says:  9.1-RELEASE.  Is this correct?
 Well, it just got worse - The last reboot now fails:  I am using a
 remote console and it shows:

 Can't work out which disk we are booting from.
 Guessed BIOS device 0x not found by probes, defaulting to disk0:

 I can enter a string as it doesn't try to reboot again till the return
 is entered.  I've tried b disk1, but it still only tries disk0.  The
 system rebooted fine after the reboot after make kernel.  Mergemaster
 didn't seem to affect anything dealing with boot.  Don't know what
 make delete-old does but the descriptions lead me to not believe it
 could cause this.  This system is on the other side of LA from me so
 its a major trip timewise.  Any ideas how this can be recovered
 remotely?

 I wonder if your source update didn't correctly download, mine starts with:

I have been using freebsd-update for quite awhile now and this is the first 
time it has failed.  However, I am not convinced the kernel is bad.  It never 
gets to the point of trying to load the kernel.  Something has failed in the 
bootstrap process itself and I have not figured out what is the right thing to 
enter at that prompt.  Being on-site is not a viable alternative…

Re: zfs over geli over zfs

 I am after a really specific use-case and the last minute transactions
 are important. Using a zpool over geli over a zvol. I'd like to know if
 during shutdown the kernel flushes all zfs files caches in order so
 these last minutes transactions won't be lost. The unmounting order is
 far from obvious (zfs over geli over zfs) and i wonder if such a scheme
 will succeed. I can't afford losing the last transactions of my home dir
 every time i shutdown my laptop;)

If it's a normal clean shutdown, then yes, all pending transactions will
be committed to persistent storage.

Normally you'ld do something like this by creating geli devices on disk
partitions (usually via gpt nowadays), and then creating your zpool from
those geli devices.  (Typically you'ld just use one geli device in your
zvol, which doesn't offer any resilience but avoids potential
cryptographical fubars like having two crypttexts known to come from the
same plaintext: something that can make it considerably easier to break
the encryption.

Using a zfs exported as a raw device layered with geli is a good way to
get round that, but I think you're probably better off creating a
standard UFS on top of the geli partition, rather than creating a second
layer of zpool and zfses.

(I don't actually know: this is just me guessing without ever having
tried this in practice.  I'll willingly cede to anyone with actual
experience of this sort of thing.)

Cheers,

Matthew
