Configuration Changes Are Not Stored
I have a really strange issue with pfSense 2.0.1-RELEASE (amd64.) Twice I have made configuration changes such as adding interfaces, VLANs, firewall rules, etc. I have applied those changes and tested them. I am positive about this because I have software in which IP addresses in these new VLANs was used and tested.
However some time passes and when I go back these changes to the configuration have become undone. I have attempted to view the logs but this is not possible because they do not go further back than 48 hours.
Most commonly that's because someone undoes something someone else did, sometimes by restoring a backup, sometimes by deleting things. Config history keeps 30 revisions, should go back more than 48 hours unless you're making a lot of changes. Diag>Backup/restore, Config history.
Could be possible when running from a live CD and having a problem with the storage medium used to keep the config, if it fails to write out and the system reboots. Same could theoretically happen from a drive failure on a full install though I'd consider that unlikely. You'd likely have much bigger issues.
This is a full install on a hard drive. I am pretty sure nobody has reverted it and the last 30 configurations saved are from only a few days ago.
If I could store 1GB of logs and 1GB of configurations I could at least attempt to track down the issue.
you can change /etc/inc/config.lib.inc to bump that 30 revision limit to however much you want it to be.
What about the logs? Where can I increase the amount of logs stored? I do not want to setup a syslog server.
