Syscom Only

The following systems may only be accessible to members of the Systems Committee for a variety of reasons; the most common of which being that some of these machines host Kerberos authentication services for the CSC.

artificial-flavours

Artificial-flavours is our backup server. It used to be an office terminal. It is scheduled to be decommissioned once the backup services are moved to containers on cobalamin.

A few users were running jobs before we remembered to make a-f actually be syscom-only. They have grandfathered access to the machine, which will be removed at some point.

Specs

  • Intel Celeron 3.2GHz
  • 2GB RAM
  • Biostar P4M80-M4 Motherboard
  • Western-Digital 80 GB ATA hard drive

Services

Note: secondary mail exchanger is offline due to improper relay setup.

aspartame

aspartame is a taurine clone donated by CSCF. It currently is our primary file server, serving as the gateway interface to space on phlogiston. It also hosts the auth1 container.

Specs

  • 2 AMD Opteron 2218 CPUs
  • 10GB RAM

auth1

Container on aspartame.

Services

cobalamin

Dell PowerEdge 2950 donated to us by FEDS. Will be located into the Science Machine room. Will act as a backup server for many things.

  • debian.csclub keys not installed
  • ssh host keys need to be correctly configured (some removed?)

Specs

Services

Notes

  • The network card requires non-free drivers. Be sure to use an installation disc with non-free.

glomag

Glomag is a newish server (as of Fall 2009) which hosts caffeine. Only syscom are allowed to SSH in here directly, though SSH to caffeine is permitted to all members.

Specs

  • Intel Xeon X3450 @ 2.67 GHz
  • 6 GB RAM
  • vg0: 465 GB software RAID1 (contains root partition):
    • 750 GB Seagate Barracuda SATA hard drive
    • 500 GB Western-Digital Caviar Blue SATA hard drive
  • vg1: 596 GB software RAID1 (contains caffeine):
    • 2 × 640 GB Western-Digital Caviar Blue SATA hard drive

Services

mail

mail is the CSC's mail server. It hosts mail delivery, imap(s), smtp(s), and mailman. It is also syscom-only. It is a Linux container at present.

Specs

Services

  • Mail services
  • mailman
  • web interface to mail, mailman
  • ceo daemon

psilodump

psilodump is a NetApp FAS3000 series fileserver donated by CSCF. It, along with its sibling phlogiston, host disk shelves exported as iSCSI block devices.

Specs

phlogiston

phlogiston is a NetApp FAS3000 series fileserver donated by CSCF. It, along with its sibling psilodump, host disk shelves exported as iSCSI block devices.

phlogiston is turned off and should remain that way. It is misconfigured to have its drives overlap with those owned by psilodump, and if it is turned on, it will likely cause irreparable data loss.

Specs

sodium-benzoate

Sodium-benzoate is our mirror server, funded by MEF.

Specs

  • Intel Xeon Quad Core E5405 @ 2.00 GHz
  • 16GB RAM
  • vg0: 228 GB block device behind DELL PERC 6/i (contains root partition)
  • mirror: ~14 TB block device behind DELL PERC 6/i (contains mirror)
    • 8 × 2 TB hard drive (RAID-5)

After several disk failures and RMAs, the mirror array was accidentally rebuilt using some of the 4TB drives purchased for the new mirror. They do not work properly with sodium-benzoate because the RAID controller does not support 4TB drives and only exposes part of the storage. At some point we will need to rebuild the array using the 2TB disks again.

Space disks are currently in the office underneath maltodextrin.

Services

munin

munin is a syscom-only monitoring and accounting machine. It is a Linux container at present.

Specs

Services

  • munin systems monitoring daemon
