OpenSUSE 11.3 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

OpenSUSE 11.3 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on OpenSUSE 11.3 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.

High-Availability Storage With GlusterFS On Ubuntu 10.04 - Automatic File Replication (Mirror) Across Two Storage Servers

High-Availability Storage With GlusterFS On Ubuntu 10.04 - Automatic File Replication (Mirror) Across Two Storage Servers

This tutorial shows how to set up a high-availability storage with two storage servers (Ubuntu 10.04) that use GlusterFS. Each storage server will be a mirror of the other storage server, and files will be replicated automatically across both storage servers. The client system (Ubuntu 10.04 as well) 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.

Setting Up An NFS Server And Client On Ubuntu 10.04

Setting Up An NFS Server And Client On Ubuntu 10.04

This guide explains how to set up an NFS server and an NFS client on Ubuntu 10.04. 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.

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS On Ubuntu 10.04

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS On Ubuntu 10.04

This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Ubuntu 10.04. 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.

Mandriva 2010.1 Spring Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

Mandriva 2010.1 Spring Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Mandriva 2010.1 Spring 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.

Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) On Ubuntu 10.04 (Initiator And Target)

Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) On Ubuntu 10.04 (Initiator And Target)

This guide explains how you can set up an AoE target and an AoE initiator (client), both running Ubuntu 10.04. AoE stands for "ATA over Ethernet" and is a storage area network (SAN) protocol which allows AoE initiators to use storage devices on the (remote) AoE target using normal ethernet cabling. "Remote" in this case means "inside the same LAN" because AoE is not routable outside a LAN (this is a major difference compared to iSCSI). To the AoE initiator, the remote storage looks like a normal, locally-attached hard drive.

Using iSCSI On Ubuntu 10.04 (Initiator And Target)

Using iSCSI On Ubuntu 10.04 (Initiator And Target)

This guide explains how you can set up an iSCSI target and an iSCSI initiator (client), both running Ubuntu 10.04. The iSCSI protocol is a storage area network (SAN) protocol which allows iSCSI initiators to use storage devices on the (remote) iSCSI target using normal ethernet cabling. To the iSCSI initiator, the remote storage looks like a normal, locally-attached hard drive.

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Fedora 13 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.
