HowTo test EFAv5

Post by markov »

Hi,

First, greate news and thanks for EFA v5 beta ...
I don't know where to this topic (no EFA v5 Bugs), so I put it here ...

I successfully install EFA v5 on top of Rocky Linux 9.
After initial configuration I type "OK"

and get this errors:
[eFa] - Starting MariaDB and Configuring
/usr/bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost.localdomain' failed
error: 'Host '127.0.0.1' is not allowed to connect to this MariaDB server'
ERROR 1067 (42000) at line 58: Invalid default value for 'lastsent'

and

[eFa] - Setting IP settings
cp: cannot stat '/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ens33': No such file or directory
[eFa] - Error initializing system! Please try again...

In Rocky Linux 9 all network profiles are stored in "/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/" and not in "/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/"

How to go around this ...

Thank you for testing. I will be working on fixing these and releasing a new version to test.

Installed Centos Stream9 server.

All network connection definitions on my Centos stream 9 server (no GUI) have to be administered through NetworkManager (nmcli). The connection definitions are in the /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections directory.

The efa-Configure scripts and Menus (4 - IP settings) are trying to access and modify /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ens192, which do not exist on the server, producing a lot of errors and changing/creating wrong files.

Looking at the github, it is obvious you are still using sysconfig/network-scripts interface configuration definitions, now abandoned for NetworkManager.

The Centos Stream 8 installation I have in production is still using ifcfg network-scripts.
Do you want us to switch back from NM to ifcfg, or the changes in scripts toward NetworkManager are in the timeline?

Today installed on Rocky Linux 9 server. Sofar no problem detected.

I will copy step by step my individual settings from my eFav4 production box.

Should I test something specific?

After reboot I found this message at Cli:

Code: Select all

 systemd-sysv-generator[595]: SysV service '/etc/rc.d/init.d/adcc' lacks a native systemd unit file. Automatically generating a unit file for compatibility. Please update package to include a native systemd unit file, in order to make it more safe and robust.
I will now transfer my setting from production EFav4 box and test further...
