    [server] Connecting SAS to SATA

    I have my server operating well on both NFS and Samba, thanks to much help from this forum.

    My problem now is populating it. To this end I followed advice and bought 3 second hand enterprise...

    Thanks to all. That's for tomorrow now. I'll end this and start again.
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    What I will need next is a good backup system, then I can go live. Currently I just copy my network files to a couple of removable hard drives, but I think I want better than that now, probably...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    That was ridiculously easy. Ubuntu documentation has a very simple seminar on the subject. Here

    What I did was to...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    Now I have NFS working I would like to get to the next phase, which is to get the windows machines connected. My understanding is that the only way to do this is with Samba, but it would be great if...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    I finally have a network. I'll spend a while trying out the permissions, following the reading and finishing my documentation before coming back to get the Windows machines connected.

    If you ever...

  9. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    Got it about the code tags. Thanks
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    I believe my recent problems have bee DNS based, and relevant to the very simple router supplied by my ISP. The problem was solved by using the IP address in the exports file, rather than the device...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    Obviously I did not understand about code tags. Nevermind.

    I would be very grateful if one of you would explain exactly what I should do and when I should do it (e.g. in a post? in a terminal?...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    Positive progress today. I now have a server, serverbot, with Vol10 mounted and shared, and I have two clients, firstmedion and bigbin-xubuntu, that have read write access.

    Lines in /etc/exports...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    I usually copy and paste, but I'm switching between machines on 3 different desks. I set the server to a fixed IP - 192.168.1.91. This is what it had been allocated; I just set it to fixed. The...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    Thank you for persisting. I missed out a "/" in my post, but I checked fstab and the "/" is there in the real thing. I'm sorry if I'm misinterpreting instructions, but three forms were given...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    Hello again

    I seem to have gone a long way to get back to where I was a week ago. Basically, I failed to get control of bigbin-xubuntu, so I rebuilt it as a work station. That is what it was...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    The machine that is now my server used to be the main Linux workstation. At the beginning of this I bought a decent second hand motherboard and I7 processor. I just havent had time to put it in it's...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    Offline text is going to be usefull. Thanks.
  18. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    Couple more things.

    First, I don't understand "offline text file". I would presume write a text file in the shared directory so it's obvious if it's loaded, but then you'd see it if its mounted...
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    A hearty thank you to all.

    Just prior to getting these posts I tried an experiment turning both machines off and then only turning the client on. The file Vol10 was still there in the files...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    For sake of completeness I also tried editing the client fstab so the line reads "bigbin-xubuntu:/Vol10 /Vol10 nfs defaults 0 2"

    There is now a Vol10 in the file structure which I can cd into,...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    OK guys, It's clear the two of you have differences in approach. There are no trust issues; I'm certain either of you would have smashed this in minutes if you were sitting here in front of it...
  22. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    Just noticed I'm now Frothy Coffee. Actually, not sure these beans are roasted yet.

    Anyway, Vol 10 is mounted and I have a link on the desktop.

    On the client side I have installed nfs-common. ...
  23. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    Why "remount-ro". I always want read/write access to this volume. Is there something I'm missing here.
  24. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    Ive taken a couple of steps forward, but not totally successful. I've followed up on the last set of instructions and read up on changing the host name and the structure of fstab. Consequently the...
  25. [SOLVED] Re: Time to build a server with old hardware.

    Thank you. I'm aware this must be difficult for you, talking to someone who knows absolutely nothing. A lot of problems for people like me arise from philosophy and arcane language. By philosophy...
