Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 on Dell OptiPlex 990 Initial Impressions

I received a Dell OptiPlex 990 and installed RHEL5 on it. Some preliminary observations:

  • I wanted a RAID 1, so I reached for a trusty 3ware 8006-2LP, which is a 64-bit-capable SATA RAID PCI card that I typically run in a 32-bit PCI slot.

   size 10M
   weekly
   postrotate
     /sbin/service solr restart
   endscript
}

Since this is a new file, the SELinux security context is off for /etc/logrotate.d/solr:
