Setting Up A Highly Available NFS Server

Post date: April 1, 2006, 05:04 Category: Network Views: 6619 Comments
Tutorial quote: 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.

As we do not want the NFS server to become another "Single Point of Failure", we have to make it highly available. In fact, in this tutorial I will create two NFS servers that mirror their data to each other in realtime using DRBD and that monitor each other using heartbeat, and if one NFS server fails, the other takes over silently. To the outside (e.g. the web server nodes) these two NFS servers will appear as a single NFS server.

In this setup I will use Debian Sarge (3.1) for the two NFS servers as well as for the NFS client (which represents a node of the web server cluster).

Supplying routing information using DHCP

Post date: December 10, 2006, 09:12 Category: Network Views: 3360 Comments
Tutorial quote: This article describes how to use DHCP to supply information about static routes to the clients on your network. You may want to do this if you have two or more local networks with routers between them. The DHCP software doesn't support this out-of-the-box, but it can be configured to do so without too much effort.

Ext4 support on OpenSuse 11.1

Post date: January 5, 2009, 10:01 Category: System Views: 4333 Comments
Tutorial quote: Kernel 2.6.28 Released

Torvald released the final version of Linux Kernel 2.6.28. It's not a big change since RC 9, but it finally appeared as final after lots of discussion on LKML whether to postpone the release or release earlier and make the merge window longer as the developers goes on long holidays.

Here's some summary of Kernel 2.6.28 (taken from KernelNewbies): Linux 2.6.28 adds the first version of Ext4 as a stable filesystem, the much-expected GPU memory manager which will be the foundation of a renewed graphic stack, support for Ultra Wide Band (Wireless USB, UWB-IP), memory management scalability and performance improvements, a boot tracer, disk shock protection, the phonet network protocol, support of SSD discard requests, transparent proxy support, several new network drivers, controlable IO CPU affinity, high-resolution poll()/select(), support of a minimal "dummy" policy in SELinux, tracing improvements, x86 x2APIC support, a fb driver for VIA UniChrome devices, Mitac Mio A701 ARM-based smartphone support, some new drivers, improved device support, and many other small improvements and fixes.

Running network services as a non-root user

Post date: April 20, 2006, 10:04 Category: Security Views: 3549 Comments
Tutorial quote: There are many times when it is convenient to allow non-root users to run services, or daemons, which bind to "privileged ports". There are several approaches to this problem each with its own set of pros and cons. Read on for a brief look at the most common approaches.

Configuring Apache

Post date: April 13, 2005, 05:04 Category: Network Views: 4504 Comments
Tutorial quote: Apache can respond to browser requests from machines on your local network (i.e. an "Intranet" Web server) or from the Internet. The installation of the Solaris OS installed and set up most of the necessary Apache files. As a result, if you want to use your system as a Web server you only need to modify one file.
