Ignite and NFS

Hi all,

I was wondering if anything is being done on the Ignite-UX facilities regarding using NFS as a transport mechanism.

Does HP have a solution when one cannot use NFS in the environment?

TIA

Re: Ignite and NFS

Francis,

Not sure if you are asking because you have a specific problem creating archives now, or just if HP are planning to change the way ignite operates.

If it's the first then the method below might help:

I believe you could use make_net_recovery and using the -a option store the files created on the client itself ie locally. You would then need a method to move those fiels to a cental location (ideally the ignite server itself) using scp, or ftp maybe.

Hope I haven't misunderstood your question.

Tony.
You CAN do that on HP

Hi Francis,

Hp has no plans at this point to change ignite to use something other then NFS.

Yes. You can configure your image installations to be transferred using NFS, ftp, or remsh.

The config file option syntax is:

nfs_source =
ftp_source =
remsh_source =

See "man 4 instl_adm" and /opt/ignite/data/examples/core11.cfg

Re: Ignite and NFS

Hmmm.....

Thanks a lot for your replies...does not help me much in my current setup though :-)

What about doing make_tape_recovery with VTL (Virtual Tape Library) emulating DDS-4 tape drives....????

Would that work or even make sense?

I have local tape drives but I need a centralised location to put these images. For patch management purposes.

I looked at the specs for VTL's and it seems that it would be much faster to recover.

TIA
