Setting Up A Highly Available NFS Server

Setting Up A Highly Available NFS Server

In this tutorial I will describe how to set up a highly available NFS server that can be used as storage solution for other high-availability services like, for example, a cluster of web servers that are being loadbalanced. If you have a web server cluster with two or more nodes that serve the same web site(s), than these nodes must access the same pool of data so that every node serves the same data, no matter if the loadbalancer directs the user to node 1 or node n. This can be achieved with an NFS share on an NFS server that all web server nodes (the NFS clients) can access.

Windows Linux DualBoot Tutorial

This tutorial was written to help set up a dual boot on a SATA drive but it will also work for PATA so continue forward and I will let you know if you need to skip something. In order to have a fully functional dual boot system it is preferred that Windows be loaded first. After that you can load Linux and easily dump the boot configuration on Windows NTLDR file (comparable to Linux boot file).

Wireless HotSpot HowTo

Linksys WRT54GS + OpenWRT + ChillSpot + FreeRadius (with Mysql authentication and accounting ) + PHP/Perl

A very Brief introduction

OpenWrt is a Linux distribution for Linksys WRT54G. It provides minimal firmware with add-on packages. Its allows the customization with broad range of software packages available for it.
We will be using OpenWrt as a replacement to the original Linksys firmware that comes pre-installed with the router.

ChilliSpot is a wireless LAN access controller. It is used for authenticating users of wireless LAN. It supports web based login for hotspots.
The Chilli daemon plays a primary role in the entire hotspot setup. It runs on the router and provides users access to the wireless Hotspot.

How to build a Hylafax server (i.e. Hylamonster)

These are the steps to build a hylafax server. (oh yeah, i almost forgot, you should definately called the fax server we build "HylaMonster")

  1. Build up your server hardware, preferably with RAID 5 (3 drives) plus 1 hotspare. Use a 3ware raid card, 8000 series is a good choice. Use an external modem connected to Com1 for best results (easy to setup)...
  2. Boot using the Debian Net Install cd and when prompted to continue type "linux26", this will load the 2.6 kernel
  3. Setup the partitions as follows (hylafax by default puts all faxes and temp files in /var, so we want to give it a lot of space)
