#13948 closed Bug/Something is broken (fixed)

create dedicated mosh for highlander and move hosting order

Reported by: Owned by:
Priority: Medium Component: Tech

Sensitive: no


Highlander is planning to move all email to MF/PL, which is going to be a lot and has agreed to move to a dedicated server.

Their current web site is on floriberto.

I suggest we start their dedicated mosh with 4GB of RAM and 150GB of disk space.

Hi Jaime - would you mind taking this one on?

I did some research to come up with names for the servers I created today and have a few left over (some we have used in the past but no longer are using so they could be brought back): Maya Angelou, Harvey Milk, WEB Dubois, Ida B Wells, Audre Lorde

Hi, I am installing on medgar and running into issues with mf-add-routes failing on first push from puppet. We saw this in #13497 and had to make some adjustments but they are not documented there. Do you remember what this was about?

comment:3 Changed 6 months ago by

Yeah - I saw those as well. I think the problem is that we need a reboot after the first puppet push so that the network interface can get properly renamed.

In puppet we create a udev rule that renames the network device based on the mac address, and the rest of the puppet scripts depend on that new name. So, a reboot solves the problem.

A more elegant solution would be to try to research a udev command that would trigger the rule to be applied - then that could run via puppet when the udev rule is first created.

Do we want to add an ssd volume for /var/lib/mysql to this mosh?

comment:6 Changed 5 months ago by

Thank you! And yes, let's allocated mysql via the ssd. And, can you please move the hosting order from floriberto to the new host?

They are not using us for mail or web - so you can move it when ever you want (they are using those use accounts for next cloud though).
