Subject: Status of the new nodus 

The new nodus machine is being brought to life; until installation is finished and everything is fine, the old nodus will be unharmed. For future reference:

New Nodus hardware:

Case: SuperMicro SC825MTQ-R700U

M/B: SuperMicro X8DTU-F

CPU: 2x Intel Xeon X5650

RAM: 3x Kingston KVR1333D3S8R9S (2GB)

         3x Samsung M393B5673EH1-CH9 (2GB)

           Total 12 GB

HDD: Seagate ST3400832AS (400GB)

 

Current software situation and current issues :

1) Ubuntu Server 12.04.5 is installed and updated

2) The usual 'controls' user is present, with UID=1001 and GID=1001

3) Packages installed: nfs-common, rpcbind, ntp, dokuwiki, apache2, php5, openssh-server, elog-2.8.0-2 [from source], make, gcc, libssl-dev [dependencies for elog], subversion

4) Network: interface eth0 is set up (static IP and configuration in /etc/network/interfaces); eth1 is recognized and added, but not configured yet

5) DNS: configuration is in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base (since /etc/resolv.conf is overwritten by the resolvconf program using the 'base' database)

6) ntp is installed and (presumably) configured, but ntpd misbehaves (namely, all the servers are found, but a 

tail /var/log/syslog

shows that no actual synchronization is performed, and the daemon keeps

Listening on routing socket on fd #22 for interface updates

7) dokuwiki apache2 php subversion elog are installed but not configured yet (I need info about their current state, configuration and whereabouts)

8) I copied and merged the old nodus' .bashrc and .cshrc into new nodus' .bashrc, need to know if something has to be added

9) backup frames, backup user dirs and 40m public_html are not set yet, as in #7

 

Is there something missing?

If there is something missing from here (ligo/cds software, smartmontools/hddtemp and similar, or anything else) tell me and I'll set them up.
