Draft of how to set up a new CSC machine

Netboot:

  • Put the TFTP image in place (if dist-arch pair installed before, you may skip this).

e.g. extract http://mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/ubuntu/dists/oneiric/main/installer-amd64/current/images/netboot/netboot.tar.gz to caffeine:/srv/tftp/oneiric-amd64

  • Configure DHCP server; see caffeine:/etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf

[todo: example]

  • Force network boot

Else boot CD


For Ubuntu installer to have lvm support, apt-get install lvm2. If you still can't see the partitions (even if lvscan sees them, but no devices exist), just rename a logical volume something else and back. This makes LVM tell udev about the device. Now the partitioner should be able to see them.
