How To Create A Fiber Channel SAN Using SCST With QLogic HBA On Linux Debian 6

How To Create A Fiber Channel SAN Using SCST With QLogic HBA On Linux Debian 6

I created this how-to as none of the other instructions on the internet work correctly. This is done specifically  for Ubuntu and Debian and is based on the 2.6.32 although with some common sense this should work with any distro and any kernel.

How To Add WiKID Two-Factor Authentication To OpenVPN Community On Ubuntu 13.04

How To Add WiKID Two-Factor Authentication To OpenVPN Community On Ubuntu 13.04

These instructions describe setting up two-factor authentication with WiKID Strong Authentication, which is a commercial/open source two-factor authentication system and OpenVPN, an SSL-encrypted VPN, on an Ubuntu 13.04 Linux server using the Radius Pluggable Authentication Module. First, we will configure PAM to use Radius, then we will configure OpenVPN to use PAM and one-time passwords, then we will create a network client on the WiKID server for OpenVPN. We won't go into specifics about installing these services, rather we will focus on configuring them to all work together.

Debian Wheezy Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

Debian Wheezy Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Debian Wheezy 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.

Encrypt Your Data With EncFS (OpenSUSE 12.3)

Encrypt Your Data With EncFS (OpenSUSE 12.3)

EncFS provides an encrypted filesystem in user-space. It runs without any special permissions and uses the FUSE library and Linux kernel module to provide the filesystem interface. It is a pass-through filesystem, not an encrypted block device, which means it is created on top of an existing filesystem. This tutorial shows how you can use EncFS on OpenSUSE 12.3 to encrypt your data.

Distributed Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.10

Distributed Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.10

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 12.10) to one large storage server (distributed storage) with GlusterFS. The client system (Ubuntu 12.10 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.
