Linux Baseline

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I would like to create a baseline of a brand new linux install.

This is what i plan to make a baseline of:


then doing a netstat to capture what ports are currently open:
netstat -a -n > /root/Baseline/netstat-baseline

Are there any other items that I should include in my base line before
I put this server on the wire?

Depends what you are trying to achieve...

An output from lsof
A list of processes
A list of kernel modules
A list of usernames in the password/shadow file
A list of group names in the group file
A list of +s files
A list of o+rw files
A list of Instakk sets / software packages

off the top of my head....

/var is where your logs are.
Don't bother with them as they will start to change immediately anyway.


When I shake my killfile, I can hear them buzzing!
