  1. current plan is to set up the HA cluster on a masqed LAN for testing before setting it live. It is going to be a mammoth task... it has been 16 years since i have done any networking.. ah well if you dont try you never fail
  2. The website is for a Community Radio Station (2nim-FM) the website is http://nimfm.org in the famous alternate lifestyle villiage of Nimbin NSW. As the organisation is run by volunteers in a place with a transient population there have been a total of eight system admins over a span of 16 years who have all added their own flavour to the capabilities of the servers. Box #1 has the apache, DNS ,SMB, and houses the MP3 record libraray, streaming server/aidio logger (legal requirement for broadcast licence)... amoung other things Box #2 has the proxy and perhaps the mail server (from memory) Box #3 (dead) I am told had a Mirror of box #1 It sounds like your alternatve method is what I am looking for Ian Thank you for your help and.... PS nice to see someone still lurking here
  3. I want to set up a local mirror of the server. the mirror will be housed on a separate machine and will be used as a daily backup of the DNS, apache, squid, smb servers and user data. What steps do I need to take for this to become a reality?

    Samba as PDC

    only one problem with swat is it does not save your previous config. its always a good idea to make a backup of your config file before editing with swat.
  5. my site is at he bottom of every post i make NIM-FM is a community owned and operated broadcaster. It is also listed as an Income Tax Exempt Charity with the Australian Tax Office
  6. DIY iptables it took a bit too learn HOWTO use iptables but i prefer it to GUI front ends
  7. have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling using MCC
  8. any chance you could post a copy of your smb.conf file... also if you can see the folder but not its contents it may be a problem with permissions... check the ownership of the folder and its contents to see if you are allowed access.
  9. not a fan of wizards myself. why not edit your samba.conf file and start samba from a shell. remember to run testparm first though.
  10. I've been using reiser on the machine running my website and office lan for about three years without noticing any problems with speed or fragmentation.
  11. Unfortunately I live "out in the boondocks" ie a long way from anything. My villiage has a populatoin of 3000 and it is a three hour drive to the nearest city with any significant population to get a "box off the shelf". It is only in the last six months we have been able to connect to ADSL. Rest asssured next time I go to "The Big Smoke" I will get myself a copy of Mandriva out of the box in the meantime i will continue to use my 2005 LE and search around for a ozzie mail order company that handles mandriva.

    Im running Mandriva 2005 LE and about to Upgrade to 2006 powerpack. Not really a big bug 4 me as I can still use my cloned DVDs in my Linux box.
  13. mandriva has a nice gui install. simoly place your install CD or DVD in your drive and boot the system. the install will allow you to keep your old system (dual boot) or completely overwrite your old one.
