18 years ago is not updating.  I haven't seen any new files appear in
two days now.  cvs stat shows that it thinks I am up-to-date while actually
using bonsai to compare file versions the cvs-mirror server is behind.

In the past this was caused by being out of disk space.

I can definately confirm this. Is there any way to pull from the main cvs in the

I get an access denied from Could you check the
permissions/allowed hosts, Dawn?

hosts allow seems to be correct.

from the rsync log file, here is the last successful rsync from source forge
and the most recent failure. They're both from the same IP address so this
looks like a dns problem, not a config problem. /etc/rsyncd.conf was last
changed sept 26.  OTOH, nslookup seemed to behave correctly.  The sept 26
change set max connections to 1. Could that be the problem? Also while
we're at it could we fix the lines in the conf file that are causing all
the error messages? (transfer logging, use chroot, etc)

this seems like the problem is on thelizard. reassining to risto.

It looks as though someone has changed the firewall config on's net
so that it only lets DNS packets to ( through, and
not those to, our backup server, or any other servers for that
matter.  I've worked around this by commenting out the backup server in
/etc/resolv.conf, but this is really bad, since we now have no backup server.
Please fix the firewall rules as soon as possible.

Mosedale's change didn't make any difference. the attempted rsync at
15:19 failed again.

Note that this firewall horkage is causing other problems as well.
We can no longer send mail between thelizard and lounge. Since mail is
broken this is keeping people from checking in to
and/or keeping checkins from showing up in bonsai (

This breakage keeps CPD engineers from working. Marking severity as blocker.

ntpdate has also been broken since oct 3

also it looks like weekly dumps have been failing have been failing
since sept.

I called the help desk and filed ticket 265177 which is being sent to
the network team.

reassigning to harishm since I think rko is out of town.

Dumps... don't worry. If the tape is full it leaves these zombies behind. 
Usually it fills before the level 6 backups... thus all those leftover

Seems like sourceforge's reverse DNS had been changes, thus * 
didn't match anymore and didn't let rsync. I've added cvs-mirror's IP to the 
allowed hosts and it seems to sync fine now. 

Harish, could you verify that this is fixed and if it is please close the

Running commands from command line seems to be syncing fine to cvs-mirror. Btw, 
I also raised limits for rsync max hosts. It was set to 1 because that was when 
we had some preformance problems with MacCVS clients loading the server and in 
elimination tried that too and forgot to put it back to what it was (3).
