How To Create A RAID1 Setup On An Existing CentOS/RedHat 6.0 System

How To Create A RAID1 Setup On An Existing CentOS/RedHat 6.0 System

This tutorial is for turning a single disk CentOS 6 system into a two disk RAID1 system. The GRUB 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).

Mounting Remote Directories With SSHFS On Debian Squeeze

Mounting Remote Directories With SSHFS On Debian Squeeze

This tutorial explains how you can mount a directory from a remote server on the local server securely using SSHFS. SSHFS (Secure SHell FileSystem) is a filesystem that serves files/directories securely over SSH, and local users can use them just as if the were local files/directories. On the local computer, the remote share is mounted via FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace). I will use Debian Squeeze for both the local and the remote server.

Setting Up Network RAID1 With DRBD On Debian Squeeze

Setting Up Network RAID1 With DRBD On Debian Squeeze

This tutorial shows how to set up network RAID1 with the help of DRBD on two Debian Squeeze systems. DRBD stands for Distributed Replicated Block Device and allows you to mirror block devices over a network. This is useful for high-availability setups (like a HA NFS server) because if one node fails, all data is still available from the other node.

Ubuntu 11.04 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

Ubuntu 11.04 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Ubuntu 11.04 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.

Setting Up Unison File Synchronization Between Two Servers On Debian Squeeze

Setting Up Unison File Synchronization Between Two Servers On Debian Squeeze

This tutorial shows how to set up file synchronization between two Debian Squeeze servers with Unison. Unison is a file-synchronization tool similar to rsync, but the big difference is that it tracks/synchronizes changes in both directions, i.e., files changed on server1 will be replicated to server2 and vice versa.

How To Encrypt Directories/Partitions With eCryptfs On Debian Squeeze

How To Encrypt Directories/Partitions With eCryptfs On Debian Squeeze

eCryptfs is a POSIX-compliant enterprise-class stacked cryptographic filesystem for Linux. You can use it to encrypt partitions and also directories that don't use a partition of their own, no matter the underlying filesystem, partition type, etc. This tutorial shows how to use eCryptfs to encrypt a directory on Debian Squeeze.
