Running AFS on DICE RH9

RH9 isn't a supported platform for our AFS pilot, so you're somewhat on your own with all of this. That said, there is a set of RPMS that provides most of what's needed, albeit with some twidling.

  • Add the following to your profile:
!profile.packages               mADD(+openafs-1.2.13-rh9.0.1 \
                                     +openafs-client-1.2.13-rh9.0.1 \
                                     +openafs-devel-1.2.13-rh9.0.1 \
                                     +openafs-server-1.2.13-rh9.0.1 \
                                     +openafs-kernel-1.2.13-rh9.0.1 \
                                     +openafs-krb5-1.2.13-rh9.0.1 \

!                  mSUBST(lcfg_kerberos, lcfg_kerberos rc_afs)
  • Wait for eons while the profile builds..
  • Run om updaterpms run
  • Edit (as root) /etc/sysconfig/afs and change the VERBOSE defintion to be VERBOSE=-dynroot -afsdb -fakestat -nosettime
  • Run (as root) echo > /usr/vice/etc/ThisCell
  • Run (as root) /etc/rc.d/init.d/afs start

If that doesn't work, drop Simon an email with the error message...


Note that, unlike the FC3 implementation, there's no PAM support here. You'll need to get AFS tokens manually before using the filesystem by typing aklog.
