How To Set Up Software RAID1 On A Running System (Incl. GRUB2 Configuration) (Debian Squeeze)

This guide explains how to set up software RAID1 on an already running Debian Squeeze system. The GRUB2 bootloader will be configured in such a way that the system will still be able to boot if one of the hard drives fails (no matter which one).

Fedora 14 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

Fedora 14 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Fedora 14 and how to configure it to share files over the SMB protocol as well as how to add users. Samba is configured as a standalone server, not as a domain controller. In the resulting setup, every user has his own home directory accessible via the SMB protocol and all users have a shared directory with read-/write access.

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS On Fedora 13

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS On Fedora 13

This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Fedora 13. Instead of NFS, I will use GlusterFS here. The client system will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

Openfiler 2.3 Active/Passive Cluster (heartbeat,DRBD) With Offsite Replication Node

Openfiler 2.3 Active/Passive Cluster (Heartbeat, DRBD) With Offsite Replication Node

Openfiler is a Linux based NAS/SAN application which can deliver storage over nfs/smb/iscsi and ftp. It has a web interface over that you can control these services. The cluster we build will consist of two nodes replicating each other and taking over services and storage in case of emergency. Furthermore we have an Offsite Replication Server, which ideally stands in a physically different position and replicates the configurations/storage from which ever node is active. In case of emergency this Offsite Replication Server can be used to restore the cluster and to deliver the services.

Setting Up An NFS Server And Client On Mandriva 2010.1 Spring

This guide explains how to set up an NFS server and an NFS client on Mandriva 2010.1 Spring. NFS stands for Network File System; through NFS, a client can access (read, write) a remote share on an NFS server as if it was on the local hard disk.

How To Set Up WebDAV With Apache2 On Mandriva 2010.1 Spring

How To Set Up WebDAV With Apache2 On Mandriva 2010.1 Spring

This guide explains how to set up WebDAV with Apache2 on a Mandriva 2010.1 Spring server. WebDAV stands for Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning and is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol that allow users to directly edit files on the Apache server so that they do not need to be downloaded/uploaded via FTP. Of course, WebDAV can also be used to upload and download files.

Setting Up An Active/Active Samba CTDB Cluster Using GFS & DRBD (CentOS 5.5)

Setting Up An Active/Active Samba CTDB Cluster Using GFS & DRBD (CentOS 5.5)

This article explains how to set up an Active/Active Samba CTDB Cluster, using GFS and DRBD. Prepared by Rafael Marangoni, from BRLink Servidor Linux Team. We use two nodes, both are active nodes, and the requests are loadbalanced. To replicate data between the nodes we use DRBD. To active/active cluster, we must use a ClusterFS (in this case GFS), to make the two nodes to write on the DRBD resource at same time.
