Barracuda NextGen Firewall X

'Global Append Options' are not activated

  • Type: Knowledgebase
  • Date changed: 5 months ago
Solution #00005172 
 
Scope:
This solution replies to:
- NG Firewall firmware versions 4.2.x, 5.0.x, 5.2.x
- netfence firmware versions 4.2.x

 
Symptoms:

Configured "Global Append Options" in the bootloader configuration are not used, altough the box was rebooted.

 
 
Solution:

The problem is another append entry in /etc/lilo.conf:
  cat /etc/lilo.conf boot=/dev/sda

   map=/boot/map
   install=/boot/boot.b
   prompt
   #linear
   timeout=30
   #restricted
   #password=
   #serial=
   default=2.4.33-3.6.0.12
   append="pci=noacpi"

   ############ header end #############
   image=/boot/bzImage-2.4.33-3.6.0.12
   label=2.4.33-3.6.0.12
   initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.33-3.6.0.12.img
   read-only
   root=/dev/sda3
   append="hdc=ide-scsi"´

This issue can be caused if the machine has a CCISS-controller or a SCSI-CDRom attached.

 

Change the second append entry to "addappend", to correct this issue:

  vi /etc/lilo.conf

   boot=/dev/sda
   map=/boot/map
   install=/boot/boot.b
   prompt
   #linear
   timeout=30
   #restricted
   #password=
   #serial=
   default=2.4.33-3.6.0.12
   append="pci=noacpi"

   ############ header end #############
   image=/boot/bzImage-2.4.33-3.6.0.12
   label=2.4.33-3.6.0.12
   initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.33-3.6.0.12.img
   read-only
   root=/dev/sda3
   addappend="hdc=ide-scsi"
 

 

 

After changing this parameter your boot-record has to be re-written. Do this by entering the following command:

  lilo

   Added 2.4.xx-x.x.x.x *


After a reboot the box will use the correct apped-optins. Reboot the box by entering the following command:

  reboot
