Draft of how to set up a new CSC machine


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

e.g. extract 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.
