Re: Setting up new solver with users on NFS

Is this any help: https://www.howtoforge.com/nfs-server-and-client-on-centos-7 Yes it is! Thank you very much! All the Linux servers can now see the disk In a roundabout way, Window PCs can also see the disk: I have mounted solver2:/working/solver2 on both fileserver:/working/solver2 and solver1:/w...

Re: Setting up new solver with users on NFS

SELinux. If a home-directory is on NFS-mount, then you have to tell selinux that you trust the NFS. setsebool -P use_nfs_home_dirs 1 Brilliant! Thanks. I can now ssh to it as user. Next, I am trying to make the local data disk on solver2 visible to both other Linux servers and to user on Windows PC...

Re: Setting up new solver with users on NFS

It seems what I needed to was set up Samba on the new solver as a Domain Member, though it is quite working as expected yet. https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Setting_up_Samba_as_a_Domain_Member I was able to copy the /etc/krb5.conf and smb.conf file from solver1 (changing hostname where necessary), ...

Re: Setting up new solver with users on NFS

I have just checked both /etc/group and /etc/passwd of solver1, and none of the human users appear there. There are about 45 accounts, but they are things like root, bin, cdrom, floppy, games, nobody, systemd-network, sshd, nfsnobody, printadmin etc. (Also we are a small company of ~12 people and I...

Re: Setting up new solver with users on NFS

I'd check solver1 carefully /etc/group and /etc/passwd. I suspect (could be completely wrong) that all your 'network users' have accounts on solver1, with the same passwords they're using from the host - and now need to be created on solver2. If not, then you're into the other network login options...

Re: Setting up new solver with users on NFS

Setting up new solver with users on NFS

Our company has bought a new numerical solver (which we can call "solver2") to replace the existing one ("solver1") which is about 3 years old. We want to set the new solver up as close as possible to the old one, which we know works. It's a long story why we don't have professional help with this, ...

Re: Building network-manager-l2tp on Centos 6.9 laptop

A bit of an update: I never got L2TP/IPSec working. I did notice that I was getting different results depending on whether I used: the client office's guest wi-fi network, my mobile hotspot wi-fi network, my home wi-fi. (My home wi-fi giving the best results but still failing.) At some point I was g...

Re: Building network-manager-l2tp on Centos 6.9 laptop

This link is helpful for working out what the MTU should be: https://www.draytek.com/es/faq/faq-connectivity/connectivity.wan/what-mtu-should-i-set-on-my-router/ Except that the ping commands are in Windows syntax. In Linux, -s (not -l) defines packet size, and "don't fragment" is the default option...

Re: Building network-manager-l2tp on Centos 6.9 laptop

Thanks for your help TrevorH. I do seem to be learning new things, if anything. I have worked out how to get debug logs from xl2tpd. If I start it using this command instead of the service xl2tpd start one: xl2tpd -D I get a lot more info: xl2tpd[5147]: get_call: allocating new tunnel for host WORKI...
