    samba Author: falkoTags: , , Comments: 0

    Mandriva 2009.1 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Mandriva 2009.1 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.

  • How To Set Up Software RAID1 On A Running System (Incl. GRUB Configuration) (Mandriva 2008.0)

    Author: falkoTags: , Comments: 1

    How To Set Up Software RAID1 On A Running System (Incl. GRUB Configuration) (Mandriva 2008.0) This guide explains how to set up software RAID1 on an already running Mandriva 2008.0 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).

  • Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS On Mandriva 2010.0

    mandriva Author: falkoTags: , Comments: 1

    Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS On Mandriva 2010.0 This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Mandriva 2010.0. 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.

  • Distributed Replicated Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS On Mandriva 2010.0

    mandriva Author: falkoTags: , , Comments: 1

    This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running Mandriva 2010.0) to a distributed replicated storage with GlusterFS. Nodes 1 and 2 (replication1) as well as 3 and 4 (replication2) will mirror each other, and replication1 and replication2 will be combined to one larger storage server (distribution). Basically, this is RAID10 over network. If you lose one server from replication1 and one from replication2, the distributed volume continues to work. The client system (Mandriva 2010.0 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.

  • High-Availability Storage With GlusterFS On Mandriva 2010.0 - Automatic File Replication Across Two Storage Servers

    mandriva Author: falkoTags: , , Comments: 1

    This tutorial shows how to set up a high-availability storage with two storage servers (Mandriva 2010.0) 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 (Mandriva 2010.0 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.

  • Striping Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS On Mandriva 2010.0

    mandriva Author: falkoTags: , Comments: 1

    This tutorial shows how to do data striping (segmentation of logically sequential data, such as a single file, so that segments can be assigned to multiple physical devices in a round-robin fashion and thus written concurrently) across four single storage servers (running Mandriva 2010.0) with GlusterFS. The client system (Mandriva 2010.0 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.

  • The Perfect Setup - Mandrake/Mandriva 10.2

    Author: falkoTags: , Comments: 37

    The Perfect Setup - Mandrake/Mandriva 10.2 This is a detailed description about the steps to be taken to setup a Mandrake 10.2 based server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters (web server (SSL-capable), mail server (with SMTP-AUTH and TLS!), DNS server, FTP server, MySQL server, POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc.). In addition to that I will show how to use Debian's package manager apt on an rpm-based system because it takes care of package dependencies automagically which can save a lot of trouble.
