Mac OSX Leopard Server

Hey!

I have some problems starting DeployStudio Server on the new Leopard platform. Is there something special you can do so it works, or do I need to wait for an update of DeployStudio?

Re: Mac OSX Leopard Server

Hi, the permissions of the file /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.deploystudio.server.plist must be:
  -rw-r--r--  1 root  admin  577 Nov  6 17:42 com.deploystudio.server.plist
in order to allow the DeployStudioServer daemon to be started on Leopard.
It is fixed in beta11 that's not yet available.

Re: Mac OSX Leopard Server

We have to test beta 11 with 10.5.1 before releasing it.
This system update might fix the issues we face on producing bootable Leopard netboot sets and restoring Leopard Server.
If it works, it could be released next week.

Re: Mac OSX Leopard Server

Hello again,
i've tested the Deploystudio Server B11 and on 10.4.11 it works fine (network repository located on 10.4 server), but on Leopard i cannot configure my network repository located on 1.5 server, neither AFP nor NFS. I get an Repository access error, that it cannot be mounted, but on clientside the repository is mountable and writable. Is there a solution or just a question of knowledge ?

Re: Mac OSX Leopard Server

Hmm, I don't have any problems with the AFP connection on my leopard server, but I have problems mounting with CIFS (SMB). How fast is the normal speed of a creation of an image? With a crossover cable between the leopard server and leopard client, it makes images with a speed of 3mb/sek. Both of the computers have 100/Mbit NIC. Is it the AFP connection which makes it go slowly? Or are there something you can do?

Re: Mac OSX Leopard Server

Works fine with beta11. Look at the log file /tmp/DeployStudioServer.log to check what's happening when it starts. You should expect a 30s delay for the service to start.
Disable the second network interface if you're doing NAT.

Re: Mac OSX Leopard Server

hello again,

it returns me error 62 mount_afp: AFPMountURL returned error 62

whats that ?

still mountable from client, but DeploystudioAssistant is not able to configure that repository. in the /tmp/DeployStudioAssistant.log is error 62.

unmountable.

The "Deploy" share is located under Shared Items and permissions are ok. The share name is "Deploy" too.

Any idea ?

Re: Mac OSX Leopard Server

The -T option is no more supported by leopard's mount_smbfs command.
NFS works fine, we've just fixed the Share point text field that should be disabled for NFS (assistant). Use the sub-path text field to type the path to the nfs shared folder and check the URL preview to see how it looks like.

All these issues are fixed in beta12.

Re: Mac OSX Leopard Server

Hello guys,

ok, smb is now mountable, but on my server the only way to connect. AFP nor NFS is working correctly. The DeploystudioServerAdmin is answering that it is not mountable and that it is creating a temporary repository (which is a copy of the local repository, cause i can see all my config but cannot change them).

Then i see there a but when creating netbootsets, on older G3 or G4 the netbootsets don't work anymore, when i'm creating them on servers higher than 10.4.10. Is there a known issue about that ?

Re: Mac OSX Leopard Server

ok, i found an issue in authentification:

i used my local admin in deploystudioassistant and in netbootsets,

now i use LDAP admin and it's configurable....

hoping that the rest will work...

ok for the NFS problem tried a bit and found where i stuck

NFS Directory was mistyped, didn't know that i had to give him the full path to the share. Sorry for bugging you...

Now for AFP. i successfully mounted it in 10.4 via mount -t afp afp://admin:xxxxxM@10.0.0.40/Deploy /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Users/testuser/a/

could this help you ?

Re: Mac OSX Leopard Server

Where is located your repository folder ?

If the repository folder is the share point:
- leave the Path or Sub-path text field blank
- set the share point name only

If the repository folder is a sub folder of the share point:
- set the share point name (MySharePoint)
- set the path or sub-path to the repository sub folder (/mySharePointSubFolder/myRepositoryFolder)

The assistant tests your configuration before saving. If it works on the server and fails on a netboot client, start the assistant from a client machine.

Re: Mac OSX Leopard Server

Please, try beta16. It fixes Tiger's netinstall sets creation and repository mounting.
