    A Beginner's Guide To LVM This guide shows how to work with LVM (Logical Volume Management) on Linux. It also describes how to use LVM together with RAID1 in an extra chapter. As LVM is a rather abstract topic, this article comes with a Debian Etch VMware image that you can download and start, and on that Debian Etch system you can run all the commands I execute here and compare your results with mine. Through this practical approach you should get used to LVM very fast.

    How to recover data from an encrypted harddisk on boot failure with Ubuntu 14.04 This document describes how to recover an encrypted harddisk in a failed boot device for Ubuntu 14.04 Server. This method will work for Ubuntu Desktop also. This is a very havoc situation when the distro fails to boot and we have our important data inside the distro. If the harddisk is not encrypted then we can easily retrieve our data with the help of live-cds or live-USB boot devices, but if the harddisk was encrypted then situation becomes little hectic. I will cover the topic for encrypted harddisk data retrieval from Ubuntu distros.

    ubuntu Author: howtoforgeTags: , , Comments: 10

    How to configure an NFS server and mount NFS shares on Ubuntu 14.04 Network File System (NFS) is a popular distributed filesystem protocol that enables users to mount remote directories on their server. The system lets you leverage storage space in a different location and write onto the same space from multiple servers in an effortless manner. It, thus, works fairly well for directories that users need to access frequently. This tutorial explains the process of mounting NFS share on an Ubuntu 14.04 server in an simple and easy-to-follow steps.

  • High-Availability Storage With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Debian Wheezy - Automatic File Replication (Mirror) Across Two Storage Servers

    debian Author: Falko TimmeTags: , , Comments: 4

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

    debian Author: joedm09Tags: , Comments: 2

    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.
