BASE: Upgrading RAID6, Zero Downtime
While Going From six 2T drives to eight 4T drives
There is a lot of hype about "zero downtime", and many vendors charge boucoup dinero for that sort of hardware capability to have when upgrading a storage array.
With Linux SoftRAID, however, don't believe the hype - "zero downtime" has nothing to do with hardware!
This tutorial will cover upgrading a 6x2T SoftRAID array to 6x4T, and then adding two more 4T drives, without any downtime or service interruption.
These sessions might show factors common with both personal and professional computing.
MAIN: Redhat Kickstart
Red Hat's Kickstart installations offer a means to automate the installation process, either partially or fully. Kickstart files contain answers to all questions normally asked by the installation program, such as what time zone you want the system to use, how the drives should be partitioned, or which packages should be installed. Providing a prepared Kickstart file when the installation begins therefore allows you to perform the installation automatically, without need for any intervention from the user.
Kickstart features can be an Admin's best friend. This session will present examples of how to use the Kickstart system with RHEL/CentOS platforms to automate the creation of "cookie cutter" systems in an easily repeatable manner. Working examples of various methods of using Kickstarts will be included.
SLUUG Sponsored meetings in the STL Metro Area
We open the room for the general meeting about 6:00 PM.
Then we start at 6:30 PM with our BASE introductory level session (usually focused on personal computing); which may include either amazing graphical packages, blinking lights, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications, displays of newly discovered web sites, major resolution of long standing anomalies, quantum discoveries, smoke and mirrors, superb tutorials, or shifts in both time and space.
Sometime after 7:00 PM we attempt a quick welcome, introductions, announcements, current events of interest, and a general CALL FOR HELP (Questions and Answers) segment.
Sometime after 7:30 PM, we may take a short break before our MAIN topic (usually focused on enterprise computing),
All of our meetings are free and open to the public. There is no individual membership fee.
