comment unknown facility name “local8”
man page is >822 pages long - hoped it would be an easy thing to regurgitate.

comment unknown facility name “local8”
Is it possible to further filter what is sent to the external server? Could I exclude notices from local5, for instance?

comment unknown facility name “local8”
Got it - I disabled the file streams and am just sending data via port 514 to external logger. Much better now.

comment unknown facility name “local8”
Yeah I figured out my mistake a few minutes ago. I have error and access going to separate facilities. I'm still unsure why I need to output to new files what is already being written to the existing apache logfiles (virtualhosts in play, and the apache log files are well organized).

comment What defines the type of log data that goes into local1, local2, ect?
Is it possible to split logs into severity? IE, I want to store local6 with severity 5-7 in one file, and severity 1-4 in another.

Did you mean iptables -I INPUT -j LOG and iptables -I OUTPUT -j LOG?

comment Policy in /etc/pam.d/password-auth is not being enforced
That did it - /etc/pam.d/passwd points to /etc/pam.d/system-auth. Updated my policy there and it is now being correctly implemented.

cat: /etc/pam.d/password: No such file or directory (this is centos per tags on the question, fwiw)

@nwildner, some improvement when I passwd as that account. I can't type a dictionary word and have to have some complexity. That said, the minlen is still not being enforced. I can enter a 9 character password, where I specified a minimum 12 character password.

comment Password policy on existing accounts not updated after making changes to login.defs
Gotcha, chage -m 1 -M 30 -W 14 some_existing_account looks to be the only way of doing this. I only have 2 existing users, but for systems with a bunch this could be easily scripted.

comment Stopping postfix - are messages queued when postfix is idle?
What file or directory are queued messages stored in? I might want to review some of these prior to nuking all of them.

comment Return count of matches with find/replace using sed
I was able to invert the quotes to 's|finddddd|replaceeeee|g && print STDERR "."' -- it works, but are there any hidden pitfalls?
