Server Reboot Checklist

The funnest part about working in the cloud is rebooting servers! (NOT)

I use this checklist to make sure I don't forget anything stoopid:

  • Use chckconfig to make sure that machines and services will survive a reboot More info

  • iptables rules are saved with service iptables save More info

  • Set the hostname in /etc/sysconfig/network/ More info
