    Dmb replied to a discussion, ddclient won't work

    I am trying to setup ddclient on my backup server and I am having trouble. I tried installing by doing and I also tried doing it manually by following the instructions that come with ddclient but it won't work.

    /etc/ddclient.conf:


    /etc/ddclient/ddclient.conf:



    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    I did:



    And it runs out 1 was a, 2 was b, 3 was c and 4 was d.

    Thanks.

    Sorry but which logs do I look in and how do I enable verbose logging?

    I don't know. How do I find out? If I do need it: how do I get it?

    I changed ddclient.conf to this:

    With username, password, e-mail address and websites changed for privacy.

    And it still doesn't work.

    Any ideas?

    How do I get around this?

    What logic did you use to determine which disk to pull? Your append seems to indicate they were selected at random (try one, then another - that's not good as you mess up the last access times and further degrade the array...)

    To really know which disk is which, just before powering down, simplest is to run "smartctl -a /dev/sdx | grep Serial" - where sdx is the disk in question. then check the disks for that serial number... alternatively "hdparm -I /dev/sdx | grep 'Serial\ Number' " will also provide the same information.

    Note that swapping disks may change the way linux enumerates the disk logical numbers, and understand that the disk number and "RaidDevice" numbers in the output from mdadm bear no direct relationship with physical slots or bays.

    Do we assume from your error that the system is no longer bootable? If so, you will need to boot a live linux system on CD, DVD, SD card or USB drive to find out the state of your raid array - impossible to know from the information rovided whether it can be salvaged...

    Raid has saved data here several times - but you need to understand totally what you are doing, not panic, and ask questions first before touching anything if not 100% sure...

    Thanks for the reply.

    This is what my ddclient.conf file looks like:

    With username, password, e-mail address and websites changed for privacy.

    My ClearOS box connects to a modem in bridge mode and according to Network > Settings > IP Setting it is called ppp0 so should I change "use=web, web=checkip.dyndns.com/, web-skip='IP Address'" to "use=if if=ppp0"? Is there anything else I should change?

    Thanks.

    Come on, I'm sure you can do better than that! Have you looked at /etc/ddclient/dclient.conf? Does your DDNS provider provide a configuration if it is not already in the file? Does ClearOS get your WAN IP. If it does configure ddclient to use the interface. If it does not, use the web.
    I have looked at /etc/ddclient/dclient.conf and configured it properly according to dyn.com. I also followed the readme file that came with the version of ddclient that I downloaded from Sourceforge.

    Does ClearOS get your WAN IP
    Yes; I can use the Internet.

    If it does configure ddclient to use the interface. If it does not, use the web
    How do I do that?

    Thanks.
