After moving the test stand front-ends, chiara (name server) and fb1 (boot server) to the new rack behind 1X7, we powered everything up and checked that we can reach c1teststand via pianosa and that the front-ends are still able to boot from fb1. After confirming these tests, we decided to start the software upgrade to debian 10. We installed buster on fb1 and are now in the process of setting up diskless boot. I have been looking around for cds instructions on how to do this and I found the CdsFrontEndDebian10page which contains most of the info we require. The page suggests that it may be cleaner to start the debian10 installation on a front-end that is connected to an I/O chassis with at least 1 ADC and 1 DAC card, then move the installation disk to the boot server and continue from there, so I moved the disk from fb1 to one of the front-ends but I had trouble getting it to boot. I decided to do a clean install on another disk on the c1lsc front-end which has a host adapter card that can be connected to the c1bhd I/O chassis. We can then mount this disk on fb1 and use it to setup the diskless boot OS.
