Revision as of 17:40, 18 February 2009

This page should help us to make sure the upgrade to Debian lenny is done smoothly and quickly.

Things to watch

  • Remember to check that the latest kernel (linux-image-2.6.26-1-xen-686) is used the the Xen configuration ('/etc/xen/HOSTNAME.conf').
  • Make sure that 'linux-modules-2.6-xen-686' and 'udev' are installed on the Xen domUs. Be aware that having 'udev' mounted on '/dev' doesn't necessarily indicate that 'udev' is installed. Looking at '/dev/pts' should be better.
  • Run `find /etc/ -name \*dpkg-dist\*` and use `vimdiff` to merge changes from lenny into our customized configuration files.
  • Delete '/etc/network/options' as it's not used in lenny.
  • You might need to remove 'libsasl2'. This won't cause any problems as it's just a dummy package.
  • Configuration files where you should "install the package maintainer's version":
    • /etc/locale.alias

Still running etch

vortis: Shell server. User:Bacam suggested that we should just install a new lenny shell server, point ssh.tardis to it, and retire vortis at some time in the future. Anyone know when security updates for etch will stop?

mara: Web server. Needs attention but might just be done early one morning.

piper: NFS & LDAP server. Needs attention and down-time booked in advance. (Has only just been upgraded from sarge to etch.)

agyeman: IRC server. Might need down-time or might just be done early one day.

boe: Mail server. Needs attention but could probably be done any time.
