SPIDER updates

Monday 24 November 2008 12:33 pm

 New Server
Tue 18th am made the new server hardware 'master'. Intended 15min of downtime (from 10.am) had to be extended to around 10.45 due to the server refusing to boot after changing its IP/host details - sendmail hung. Reconnecting and a few tweaks later got it all up and running.  New server is

Dell PE 2950 (rack)
Quad Core Xeon E5410 (2.33MHz)
8GB RAM (2x4GB)
3x 400GB SAS 10k giving 800GB RAID 5
running Fedora Core 9 (FC9)

The 'old' server delegated as 'BRUCe' but MySQL refused to replicate (v 3.23) from the new master server  (v5.051). As bruce now was the only backup, and v5 refused to install under FC2, set up FC9 on old 'bruce' (aka sipbs158-pc3) to get it mirroring MySQL and rsyncing the files from live SPIDER.  Once this was operating (minus a few pre 2006 log files from the MySQL database - not enough room!), installed FC9 on BRUCe. Had a problem with the CD drive failing mid-install, but cannabilised the old SIBS file server for a replacement CD drive to get the install completed. MySQL and rsync mirroring now in place, with both BRUCe and the 2nd backup server as slaves.  Just need to move one (or both) backup servers off-site.

 

Groups
Added a new admin only tool to groups to allow users to be added to multiple groups at once.
