Subject: Front-end machine setup 

Added 3 FE machines - c1ioo, c1lsc, c1sus -  to the teststand following the instructions in elog15947. Note that we also updated /etc/hosts on chiara by adding the names and ip of the new FE since we wish to ssh from there given that chiara is where we land when we connect to c1teststand.

Two of the FE machines - c1lsc & c1ioo - have the 6-core X5680 @ 3.3GHz processor and the BIOS were already mostly configured because they came from LLO I believe. The third machine - c1sus - has the 6-core X5650 @ 2.67GHz processor and required a complete BIOS config according to the doc.

Next Step:  I think the next step is to get the latest RTS working on the new fb1 (tower machine), then boot the frontends from there.


KVM switch note:

All current front-ends have the ps/2 keyboard and mouse connectors except for fb1, which only has usb ports. So we may not be able to connect to fb1 using a ps/2 KVM switch that works for all the current front-ends. The new tower machine does have a ps/2 connector so if we decide to use that as the bootserver and framebuilder, then we should be fine.
