NFS server (and client)

Added by Igor Pashev over 9 years ago

Dyson now can serve and mount NFS shares.

To make Dyson a NFS client you need to install the "illumos-nfs-common" package,
to make a NFS server - "illumos-nfs-server" (this will pull "illumos-nfs-common").

Steps to became a NFS server:

  1. Make sure you use "unstable" suite:
    # cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    deb unstable main
  2. Update APT cache:
    # apt-get update
  3. Make a backup boot environment:
    # beadm create nfs

    Just in case something goes wrong: installing NFS server will update your kernel. In any case you will have to reboot.
  4. Install packages:
    # apt-get install illumos-nfs-server
  5. Reboot to the same boot environment (not the one you created):
    # reboot
  6. Make sure services are running and not in maintenance state:
    # svcs -a | grep nfs                                                                                                          
    disabled       21:46:13 svc:/network/nfs/nlockmgr:default                                                                                                   
    disabled       21:46:15 svc:/network/nfs/status:default                                                                                                     
    disabled       21:46:17 svc:/network/nfs/mapid:default                                                                                                      
    disabled       21:46:18 svc:/network/nfs/client:default                                                                                                     
    disabled       21:46:19 svc:/network/nfs/cbd:default                                                                                                        
    disabled       21:46:23 svc:/network/nfs/server:default
    # svcadm enable -r nfs/server

Dyson on real hardware

Added by Igor Pashev over 9 years ago

I've installed Dyson on real hardware.

Illumos kernel does not support neither my wired NIC (Atheros AR8162, PCI 1969:1090),
nor wireless (Broadcom BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller, PCI 14e4:4727).

I used USB stick - ASUS WL-167G v2 802.11g Adapter [Ralink RT2571W].

I've failed to connect with both WEP and WPA (connection timeout),
but insecure connection without any authorization was successful.

I've made full desktop installation, but did not boot it yet, because
I'm going to try booting with GRUB2 from Debian, which is installed on the same laptop.
