We just moved our server from suse to Centos, and I'd like to turn off
any unnecessary services. The install documentation for Centos
recommends to install the "Base" system from the installer CD. I did
do that on my test server, but neglected to do so on when installing
my production server, so my production server was equipped with the
absolute minimum package install and only a subset of the services
that comes with "Base." The difference between "Base" and "Minimal"
are these services:
Are any of these necessary essential or helpful for a lon-capa server?
Is sendmail is needed for external mail (I'm only getting internal
mail...)? Services I'm not sure about: auditd, irqbalance, nfslock,
rpcgssd, rpcidmapd, and smartd? Are any of these needed?
The following services installed by the minimal system (and also by
base) also seems unnecessary:
Turning off the above services would leave these services running on the system:
are these the minimum needed?
Thanks for any comments.
