Description Mikel Pérez 2019-04-06 23:53:30 UTC
Description of problem:
the fail2ban package doesn't require fail2ban-systemd. I just sudo dnf install fail2ban and the systemd backend config wasn't installed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:
had I not read I wouldn't even know it'd have problems logging to journald

Comment 1 Orion Poplawski 2019-04-14 22:52:20 UTC
That wiki page is somewhat out of date and misleading.  With the current version of the fail2ban-server package, the jails that require it are configured to use the journal and so the fail2ban-systemd package is not required.  Installing fail2ban-systemd breaks jails for services that do not log to the journal (such as apache) which is why it is not installed by default.
