Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 – How to Disable Ctrl-Alt-Delete Key on RHEL 6 Console

On RHEL6, /etc/inittab file still exists, but disabling Control-Alt-Delete cannot be done in the file.To disable this behaviour, open /etc/init/control-alt-delete.conf and then find the following 2 lines and add a hash mark at beginning of the line.

# start on control-alt-delete

# exec /sbin/shutdown -r now Control-Alt-Delete pressed

DRBD on RHEL 6.6

Upgrading from RHEL 6.4 to 6.6 breaks DRBD 8.3. Fencing no longer works, with a nasty out of mem error.
