    I have the almost same error in my system log (md0 rather than md1) so your not alone. I wouldnt of known without seeing your post and checking my log. if you run "parted -l" to list your disk partitions you can see the error there too. I ran "mdadm --detail /dev/md0" and it shows me that my array is clean and in sync. My storage seems to be working fine so I will just keep an eye on it unless someone posts here it is a problem that needs fixing.

    Paul replied to a discussion, DNSCRYPT-PROXY usage

    got it all working including a startup script. Now I just need to pick a long term dns provider who I can trust from This list

    Eventually I will have to look at adding more than one dns server but that can wait

    Hi Nick

    Your link was enough info for me to get it working. Now to get it all to load on boot which I should be able to manage always rc.local if I get stuck

    Thanks Nick that looks like something I can try. I have proved the my dnscrypt-proxy works by
    1. netstat -nlp|grep :53 to confirm dnsmasq was on that port
    2. stopping dnsmasq
    3. pinging www.google.co.uk and name was not resolved
    4. bringing up the dnscrpt-proxy on port 53
    5. pinging www.google.co.uk and name was resolved

    but as your link says "every single query will make a round-trip to the upstream resolver."

    So I will give the dnmasq config changes a go.

    Hi I am trying to set up dnscrypt-proxy on my clearos server so that my dns queries will be encrypted. I have downloaded and compiled the source libsodium and dnscrypt-proxy and I can run it fine on say port 54. So I have got most of the way there and using a nslookup and specifying port 54 it works :).

    Now the question bind runs on port 53 I had hoped to update my /etc/resolv-peers.conf file to use my dnscrypt-proxy but it appears you cant specify a port number (54) in the conf file. So what I need is some help to get from where I am to my server using the proxy. How would I alter my bind config to use my dnscrypt-proxy?

    Thanks in advance for any help :)

  • Any links/information on how to configure the network on your host when using Vitrualisation. I got in a right mess trying to configure a bridge using ClearOS 6 so much so that I abandoned setting it up. Something I didnt want to do but had to due to demands from the rest of the family on using the server.

    I had one server with one nic in gateway mode(I think) and I seem to remember I had problems getting the server to recognise and use a default gateway.

    On my system I have a yum.conf and a yum.conf.rpmnew. It is only the yum.conf.rpmnew which has a line "distroverpkg=centos-release". Did you by and chance notice the new file then swap them round? Can I suggest you reset your yum.conf to be the same as mine (from 6.6.0):

    Hi Nick I have done as you suggested and replaced my yum.conf with yours and yum still works. I didnt have a yum.conf.rpmnew and didnt swap them at all so not sure how it happened.

    Thanks again for your help much appreciated.

    I have the same yum package here from clearos-updates and is OK. The file /etc/centos-release is usually provide by a package called 'centos-release-xxx.rpm' do you have this installed? Perhaps in setting up Zabbix it may have messed up your mirror config. If so... you'll need to remove the package

    You should have clearos-release-community installed, if not you will need to as this contains the clearos repos for updating.
    [root@leonardo ~]# rpm -qf /etc/clearos-release

    Hi Tim


    So I will just put it down to a strange oddity and carry on actually using the server :)

  • Well I have had a dig around and discovered that yum-3.2.29-69.el6.centos.noarch was installed as part of my update which was when I started having problems. I do have Zabbix installed but from the commands below you can see that yum-3.2.29-69.el6.centos.noarch came from clearos-updates.
