Hello all, it is finally done, the linux-login-servers
nightshade) are ready to use :-). You should be able to login from
the outside to these boxes and to hop from any other
toolserver-host too. I installed most of the packages at ; if
any package is missing, please use JIRA now to request it. We are
not able at the moment to package software for which there is no
debian-package, because we miss a build-host (I willl speak with
the WMDE about that).
We run Debian stable on the linux-boxes, and both servers (like
willow too) are managed by puppet to keep them in sync in manner of
configuration and software. I installed some aliases (mostly
gsometing->something) to make to switch from Solaris (back) to
linux easier for you ? if I miss a important one, please talk to me
in IRC or open a jira-ticket; for less important ones you can
define them yourself in .bashrc or .profile in your home.
While you can (at least at the moment) use the cron-system on
linux, you should not ? use the submit-hosts and SGE! Speaking of
SGE: To let your sge- jobs run on linux only, you have to add "-l
arch=lx" as parameter. By adding "-l arch='*' " you let SGE
the best server of both operating systems for your job. This will
always result in a minimum waiting time and is the recommended
usage if possible. Solaris will be the default for SGE until 30.
September 2012, after that the default will be switched to any
available os (I will send a reminder or 2 somewhen before).
If there are any problems, please open a JIRA-report and the roots
will try to resolve them. What will not happen: Installing of
packages from testing or unstable, or installing of
non-packaged-software (see above).
The next step in my plan, is to convert our webservers to Debian
(and using apache instead of ZWS). The step will start on Monday or
Tuesday with the removal of wolfsbane from the web-cluster (so
ortelius will be the only webserver for some time). I doubt that
this step will take as long as the previous (because most work in
puppet is already done), but you can never know.
I would hereby like to thank Merlissimo; without him the conversion
would have been much harder or impossible. Another thank to Nosy
who freed me from Solaris-work.
