It looks like the ipt_LOG kernel module is missing from the new UEKR3 kernel.
Can anyone else confirm?
find /lib -name *LOG*
I can no longer create iptables rules with the LOG target.
[root@testhost ~]# iptables -A INPUT -j LOG
iptables: No chain/target/match by that name.
[root@testhost ~]# modprobe ipt_LOG
FATAL: Module ipt_LOG not found.
[root@testhost ~]# yum whatprovides */ipt_LOG.ko | grep "3\.8"
Repository 'ol6-x86_64-uekr3' is missing name in configuration, using id
It looks like it changed in the kernel:
And from the release notes:
Any help would be great.
# modprobe -v ipt_ULOG
From what I gan gather, the LOG symbol has been changed to CONFIG_NETFILTER_XT_TARGET_LOG, which is not set, hence causing the issue.
# grep "CONFIG_NETFILTER_XT_TARGET_LOG" /boot/config-`uname -r`
# CONFIG_NETFILTER_XT_TARGET_LOG is not set
I think this is something Oracle needs to address. If you have a support subscription, I suggest to open a SR and report the issue, perhaps referring to this discussion. I don't know if anyone from the Oracle Linux team is still following the information here. There used to be some occasional feedback, but I have not seen much recently since the forum software upgrade last June. Good luck.
