Now that Asterisk 1.8.0 has finally been released, I am going to be
switching EPEL6 to Asterisk 1.8.* while RHEL6 is still in beta.
Digium plans to maintain 1.8.0 as a "Long Term Support" release which
means that support will be available from Digium for almost as long as
Red Hat supports RHEL6, whereas support for Asterisk 1.6.2.X will be
ending in 2012. I believe that at least one of the Fedora Talk boxes
has been upgraded to a RHEL6 beta so I don't want you all to be
surprised when the update shows up...
fas03 is currently having some issues we are trying to track down. The
system is setup to supposedly preserve when it crashes next. If that
works we will make a 'dump' of it by logging into xen07 and doing a
sudo /usr/sbin/xm dump-core fas03
and then restarting fas03. If you find fas03 'crashed' please notify
me either on freenode IRC in #fedora-noc or via the pager.

i'm reading through
and i'm wondering that the last modification date is two years ago.
I'm monitoring two of such MD1000 boxes. Both connected through PERC
controllers with two PowerEdge R710 servers. And i'm using the
check_megaraid_sas Nagios module which depends on the LSI MegaCli Tool.
So far i'm very happy with this and it works very well since months.
Anybody out there with a better or another solution ? Don't think there
exists a OSS option for this.

So I see what you're saying but I think some people are misinterpreting it.
The one time passwords generated by the yubikey can safely be used with
multiple services. The thing that is unsafe is using the same AES key with
multiple ykksm's. Yubico runs a ykksm for people to use with some third
party websites that support yubikeys. The fedoraproject provides its own
ykksm server. If you use the same AES key with both of these then if one of
the servers is compromised, both are compromised. If you only use your key
with one of the ykksm's then you can safely use your otps on other sites and
there will be no negative ramifications (other than not being able to
The newer yubikey hardware has provision for two AES keys but I'm not sure
how that works and whether it actually allows you to use separate keys with
separate servers. Someone will need to look into this.
