vipacaHello anybody out there dealing with sparc03:26
dendrobatesvipaca: I have a couple sparc boxes03:27
vipacaIm really a sun hardware noob03:28
vipacabut I inheireted two v210s03:28
vipacaI just ubuntu on one of them03:28
vipacainstalled fine I was suspect of network connectivty03:29
vipacanow that the box is up the nics are acting falkey03:29
vipacadendrobates: what kinda boxes do you have?03:29
dendrobatesvipaca: t2000, t520003:31
dendrobatesvipaca: or something like that I am unsure of the model of the second one.  But they are both newer.03:32
vipacaI see these are newerthen v210?03:33
vipacathere definatley beefer03:33
vipacawhat kinda of nics you got?03:34
dendrobatesI believe they are marketed as Sun gigaswift, or something like that.03:37
dendrobatesbut they are intel GE.03:38
vipacawhen you do lspci03:38
vipacaDid you run into any nic problems when you installed ubuntu03:39
dendrobatesI did not.  What version are you installing?03:40
dendrobatesare you seeing anything in dmesg?03:42
vipacalet me check03:43
helfirehey, is it easy to change from php to suphp?03:44
vipacaI hope this doesn03:45
vipacaget me hacked03:46
vipacadendrobates:Shouldn't be anything dmesg that could :/03:46
dendrobatesvipaca:  no, it;s pretty safe.03:47
vipacadendrobates:Im not sure how to read these things03:47
vipaca[   32.575597] tg3: eth%d: Cannot get nvarm lock, tg3_nvram_init failed.03:48
dendrobatesvipaca: yeah, I haven't seen that before.03:49
vipacahey you pointed me to dmesg03:50
vipacavery good03:50
vipacanow I at least no that the driver is not happy03:50
vipacaor kernel module or what ever tg3 is03:50
dendrobatesthe driver seems to be finding your interfaces03:51
dendrobatesI think that message is not relevant.03:51
vipacamaybe and maybe not03:52
dendrobateswhat is the actual problem you are seeing?03:52
vipacawell something like this I can only get light when connacting cable to 3 outof 4 nics at a time03:52
vipacaand depending it changes whiich one03:53
vipacaonce Iget a cable connected andlights on that port no connectivity after static ip conf03:53
dendrobatesI see the kernel module finding all four cards.03:54
vipacasure and ifconfig shows them all but no lights03:55
vipacano connectivity03:55
dendrobatesYou should dig deeper into the logs.  See if you can find any errors in /var/log/syslog03:57
dendrobatesdoes ifconfig look ok?03:58
vipacait does to me03:58
dendrobateshave any of the ports worked at all?03:59
vipacanot on ubuntu04:00
vipacaand I couldn04:00
dendrobateswhat does your /etc/network/interfaces look like?04:01
dendrobateswhat are you connecting these ports to?04:02
vipacadendrobates:sorry daddy duty called04:31
vipacaa switch04:31
vipacainterfaces is empty now but when its configure no good04:32
vipacaIve bee using just temp ip setupwith ifconfig04:32

rooteanyone knowledgeable about linux software RAID? Shouldn't a RAID1 be faster than a single disk?09:21
rootei'm getting the same speeds testing a single harddisk VS RAID109:21
rootei thought it was supposed to give me almost double the speed09:22
sorenFor reads, it should be significantly faster than a single disk. For writes, it's the same or slower.09:36
sorenIt depends a bit on the hardware involved. If they're on the same IDE channel, you won't get much improvement (if any).09:36
_rubenon same channel i'd expect it to be much slower even09:48

stiv_hey everybody ... i have multiple ubuntu-servers w. feisty that i update using my self-signed mirror w. some own packages (works fine!). These machines are not in a LAN, so updating via https would be a good idea, but i fell over this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apt/+bug/10929411:01

stiv_it's only fixed in gutsy and i can't find a way to adapt the apt source package (i could build it myself) to fix this issue ... is there a patch?11:02
stiv_"These machines are not in a LAN," --> yes they are :-) but not all in the same the update server is in. "are not in a LAN" sounds weired11:05
c1|freakythank you :)11:09
rootesoren and _ruben : the disks of the RAID1 are on different SATA channels. I tested speed with hdparm -tT /dev/sda, hdparm -tT /dev/sdb and hdparm -tT /dev/md0 (and 1 and 2, since i have 3 partitions on each disk, and corresponding 3 raid arrays).12:28
rootesoren and _ruben : they all give me roughly the same speeds (around 60MB/s)12:29

fuzedI'm wondering about X setup on server, is there a specific set of packages needed, does one need to run xorgconfig(which I can't seem to find) or what15:24
jdstrandsommer: sent diff15:25
jdstrandsommer: thanks again!15:26
sommerjdstrand: awesome, thank you15:26
sommerfuzed: it's not really recommended, but you can find a guide here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ServerGUI15:26
sorenfuzed: Ask in #ubuntu15:26
sommerjdstrand: so you only need one commit in the rules file?15:36
jdstrandsommer: just at the end15:36
jdstrandsommer: let me double check that15:36
sommergotcha, is there a site, man page, or something that documents iptables-restore files?15:37
sommerI got most of that info from forum and mailing list examples15:37
_rubeninfo on iptables-restore/save is *very* limited15:37
sommerI wanted to add a link in the resources for further rules file details, but couldn't really find anything official15:38
_rubeneven netfilter/iptables developers dont know the 'rules' ;)15:38
jdstrandsommer: for the most part, it is the same as an iptables rule, with 'iptables'15:38
jdstrandthe parts that are different are the default policys and COMMIT15:38
sommerI see, I guess I was wondering about these lines ":PREROUTING ACCEPT [0:0]", what does the [0:0] mean?15:39
_ruben0 bytes / 0 packets15:39
jdstrandresets the counters15:39
sommerah, gotcha15:39
sommerI guess once you understand that part of it, it's really just iptables commands... like you said15:40
sommer_ruben: thanks15:40
_rubencorrect .. just slightly different formatted ;)15:41
sommercool, I think we're good for the resources section then15:41
sommerjdstrand: also, to double check even if you set /etc/default/ufw to forward you still need to enable forwarding in /etc/sysctl.conf?15:42
sommerI think I missed a command to reload sysctl once you edit the file :-)15:43
jdstrandsommer: yes. I should probably change that15:43
jdstrandsommer: and you are right about COMMIT15:43
sommerso it is needed for both tables?15:43
jdstrandone COMMIT per table15:43
jdstrandso the *filter table needs a COMMIT and the *nat table needs a COMMIT15:44
sommergotcha, I'll adjust that and add the sysctl command15:44
jdstrandso all POSTROUTING part should be entirely *before* the *filter section15:45
sommercool, does the new file cover the major aspects of ufw?15:47
jdstrandeg http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/55851/15:47
jdstrandsommer: yes15:47
jdstrandsommer: obviously that paste includes some of my rules that shouldn't be in there ;)15:48

jdstrandsommer: I am going to file a bug on the sysctl part15:50
sommerjdstrand: with regard to the documentation?15:51

jdstrandsommer: you shouldn't have to adjust sysctl.conf in ufw when you adjust /etc/default/ufw15:51
jdstrandno, in ufw15:51

fooframe45: Hm, is the client only downloading?20:19
fooframe45: Do you plan on giving them ftp/sftp access?20:20

ScottKFor an Ubuntu Server if you install openssh-server, sftp will just work.20:21
fooScottK: Right, but that may not be the best solution here20:21
frame45yes.   Most of our client use Mac I want them to be able to log-in via Connect to server or with an FTP client software20:21

frame45I will be creating and administering (uploading to the FTP)20:22
fooframe45: Ok, so someone will need to upload files, then client downloads. You can upload via sftp, and client could download via HTTP. I think that's your best bet.20:22

jronnblomim running hardy alpha4 on vmware ESX I by default the pcnet32 driver is loaded22:45
antdedyetGargoyle: np -- you can always create a namevhost-local.conf in conf.d and write "NameVirtualHost *" in there22:46
jronnblomit also loads the vmxnet driver22:46
antdedyetThat will allow you less conflicts with distribution default config updates22:46
jronnblomsoren: at first I thougth the vmxnet_needed purpose was to remove the pcnet32 and replace it with vmxnet22:46
jronnblomsoren: now Im not sure anymore22:47
antdedyetOf course, you could also just set proper dpkg up to not ever overwrite conflicting conffiles22:48

Centaur5Is there a way to make a dhcp server only give out IP addresses to PXE boot requests?23:04
* antdedyet shrugs as he sees someone's gutsy box hard lock after trying the likewise-open built package from their site after failing to join the domain23:04
antdedyetThe hardy pkg worked fine for me, except joining the domain failed.23:06
antdedyet(my error tho, I don't know the network well)23:06
antdedyetCentaur5: My method would involve manually toggling the MACs in and out of the PXE boot config section located in dhcp... probably not what you're looking for.23:08
antdedyetCentaur5: what dhcp server are you using? isc?23:08
Centaur5antdedyet: Right, I do that to have one server do thin clients but the other server I want to network install (hopefully when I can figure that out).23:15
Centaur5When I have both servers running though they both give out IP addresses and I only want one of them to give addresses to regular workstations.23:16
faulkes-Centaur5: you can tell dhcp to ignore or handle specific mac addresses23:17
Centaur5faulkes-: great suggestion but I have guest machines coming and going that are constantly connecting.23:18
Centaur5I'm probably going to unfortunately have to physically separate with a new hub and cables the machines that need installations or just deal with 2 servers giving out IP addresses?23:22
antdedyetCentaur5: that's almost exactly what I was about to suggest ... network segregration is a good thing when multiple dhcp servers are involved23:22
antdedyetCentaur5: but the new servers to be installed are going to eventually join the existing infrastructure?23:23
faulkes-iirc, I believe some switches support forwarding tftpboot / pxe / dhcp requests to specific hosts on a per port basis23:26
Centaur5We sell and repair computers and I'm trying to figure out the best way to load Ubuntu on new machines and network installs would be excellent.  New machines are built and installed on any available bench so we would have to dedicate an area for new installs which would be mainly wasted.23:26
faulkes-however, those would typically be high end switches/routers ;)23:26
faulkes-why don't you have just one dhcp server do both?23:28
antdedyetCentaur5: why would the space be wasted? it's saving you a ton of time; making your work more effective.23:28
faulkes-iirc it is entirely possible and shouldn't affect regular client machines23:28
faulkes-pxe calls dhcp to get an address and then connects to tftpboot to get config files and other data23:29
faulkes-so a regular machine booting, unless pxe boot is enabled in the bios, will only ever get a dhcp address23:29
Centaur5antdedyet: Well we would have to find a decent amount of necessary bench space. We have 9 machines to install now but next week we may have 0.23:29
antdedyetCentaur5: run two patch cables to each dedicate machine space on the bench and label them appropriately as "new network install access" and "regular ole internet" or whatever...23:31
faulkes-again, I have to question the requirement of two dhcp servers23:31
Centaur5antdedyet: Yeah, I thought about that as a possibility.23:31
faulkes-one dhcp server is quite capable of handling both pxe booted machines and regular dhcp requests23:32
Centaur5faulkes-: Only mainly cause I try to keep all hard file transferring on a different server than the one with our applications.23:32
faulkes-as long as you have a good switch, it shouldn't matter23:33
faulkes-if you are using a hub, different story23:33
faulkes-that's just MO though23:33
Centaur5faulkes-: It's mainly to prevent bogging down the 2 thin clients we use off that primary server as well.  We have a gigabit 24 port switch.23:33
Centaur5It's not managed though, we should have done managed.23:34
faulkes-if you have gigabit ethernet available, bandwidth shouldn't be an issue23:34
faulkes-managed or not really doesn't matter23:34
faulkes-switching is handled at the hardware layer23:34
faulkes-once the switch learns the mac destination, it won't flood other ports23:35
faulkes-so unless your thin clients are attempting to access the pxe booted machines during install23:35
Centaur5faulkes-: Okay, we currently have a raid 10 on the primary server that runs the thin clients and all web apps.  When I did a 8 gig data backup it made the thin clients unusable.  Do you think a network install will cripple them?23:35
faulkes-it shouldn't23:36
faulkes-it's raid, you are basicly doing one huge read23:36
faulkes-how was the backup done?23:36
Centaur5Oh right, I was doing the backup to the server so I was writing.23:36
faulkes-again, I'm not saying you won't have issues, but I think it's at least worth an investigation before you start rewiring stuff and creating a workbench area23:37
Centaur5It's also a hardware raid controller so I don't imagine we can get much faster without getting very expensive.23:37

faulkes-if the backup software runs on the server itself, you also have to deal with the fact the it likely stole a good portion of the cpu in the server23:38
faulkes-not to mention disk i/o23:38
faulkes-whereas reading from a raid controller to a gige network should all happen at the hardware level and the ip stack23:38
Centaur5faulkes-: It was actually just a 8 gig transfer from a different machine.  Maybe I'll test the network install on that server then and hopefully solve that issue.23:39
faulkes-well, that is my suggestion, if it works, you would save alot of time and energy23:39
Centaur5Now my question is has anybody successfully done a network install server on Gutsy?23:39
faulkes-iirc Loye has23:40
Centaur5I did one on Edgy 8 months ago but Gutsy appears to be different.23:40
faulkes-which specically references 7.1023:41
Centaur5Yeah, I tried that one.23:42
Centaur5The server gets this error in syslog when a workstation attempts to boot. in.tftpd[14220]: received address was not AF_INET, please check your inetd config23:43
faulkes-suggested work around includes using xinetd instead of inetd23:48
ubotuLaunchpad bug 32330 in inetutils "Amanda fails because client thinks server is IPv6 when it's IPv4." [High,Confirmed]23:48
faulkes-although that references amanda, it is the same issue you are seeing23:49
Centaur5ahh...new package23:49
