1. Let's work from an environment where we can install Ansible on.
Requirements: A Linux machine (eg. VM whether in the Cloud or a local VM on Vbox/VMWare/Proxmox) that you can easily install Anisble on (eg. Debian/Ubuntu/Mint). The VM requires proper/working internet between the Ansible Controller and to the internet.
This will be on our "controller" / source machine which is where we deploy the Ansible Playbooks (.yaml) files from.........
To disable selinux temporarily and immediately:
To make it permanent edit /etc/selinux/config:
The cool thing here is that we only need 1 drive to make a RAID 10 or RAID 1 array, we just tell the Linux mdadm utility that the other drive is "missing" and we can then add our original drive to the array after booting into our new RAID array.
Step#1 Install tools we need
yum -y install mdadm rsync
Step #2 Create your partitions on the drive that will be our RAID array
Here I assume it is /dev........
In Centos 7 tftpd will not work with selinux. Clients will not be able to connect and this is all you'll see in the log (then nothing more):
Sep 18 14:39:15 localhost xinetd: START: tftp pid=4331 from=192.168.1.65
On the client/computer side you will see this:
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent
Basically the client is being instantly connected and bloc........
The strange thing is that usually the first install or two will work on any new machine but then it suddenly won't. I had this experience on QEMU 2.13 on a different machine. There is something finicky or buggy about the CUCM installer even when choosing the same virtual hardware specs.

You may get this after a long time of not rebooting but especially if you have rsync'd a / partition or deployed an image to another VPS or computer, you will often have this issue.
The good thing it usually just takes a reboot.
Here is more info from Centos........
Here is the scenario you or a client have a remote machine that was installed as a standard/default minimal Centos 6.x machine on a single disk with LVM for whatever reason. Often many people do not know how to install it to a RAID array so it is common to have this problem and why reinstall if you don't need to? In some cases on a remote system you can't easily reinstall without physical or KVM access.
So in this case you add a second physical or disk or already ha........
In my case I could login with the initial install but I rsync'd everything over while preserving ownership and permissions to another RAID partition and booted from that.was fine before. The problem is that you are kicked out the second you login and the problem was SELINUX for some reason (perhaps it noticed something strange when it was moved to the new partition)
login: pam_unix(login:session): session opened for user root by LOGIN(uid=0)

i337 Canada on Bell is hard to root or even install TWRP
Installed TWRP from Odin and my computer gave me the bluescreen at the end but it seemed to be successful (after ODIN said reset).
TWRP mode does not seem to enter, instead you get the Android recovery mode with Volume up + Home

After some fsck issues I can't boot my Centos 6.4, this just keeps repeating over and over.

Solution To The Following:
yum -y install zlib-devel
yum -y install e2fsprogs*
*** Cannot find /usr/include/et/com_err.h. (yum install libcom_err-devel) ***
Installation didn't pass, halting install.
Once requirements are met, run the following to continue the install:
Common pre-install commands:
Here is a quick script that works on most Centos versions to disable the virus/SELinux from blocking basic functionality.
The first echo 0 statement disables SELinux instantly but it will still be enabled on reboot.
The second line disables it permanently.
#disable SELinux Immediately
echo 0 > /selinux/enforce
#disable SELinux Permanently
sed -i 's/SELINUX=enforcing/SELINUX=disabled/g' /etc/selinux/config........
yum exits in the middle
The problem is this VPS seems to be an OpenVZ template from HyperVM. The only way to make it work was to disable i386 packages since this was an x64 kernel. That shouldn't be necessary but it was the only way to make yum stop quitting after the first package or two. I couldn't find any issue by checking the logs either.
echo y|yum install vim-minimal telnet expect jwhois net-tools slocate iptables elinks gawk
This is a very simple solution, but most guides out there make you login twice (once to scp the key) and once to put the key in authorized_keys. There's no need for that.
If you don't already have a ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub just type "ssh-keygen -t rsa" and keep hitting enter until it's done :)
Just use this code to easily enable passwordless login with SSHD
key=`cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub`;ssh firstname.lastname@example.org "echo $key >> ~/.ssh/auth........
I decided on using yum to help me decide even though I normaly use proftpd I decided to see what else I could find.
