TDDI05 System installation: Labs
Start with the introduction and course information, then move on to the preparatory labs and finally the project. The preparatory labs should not take that long to finish as the instructions are fairly detailed.
This course has nearly 150 hours allocated to labs, but less than a third of that actually scheduled. Experience shows that many students will need all the hours allocated. Plan your work accordingly.
The deadline for handing labs is November 30. Demonstrations are to take place before that deadline as well.
Domain and host names Use group.sysinst.ida.liu.se as your DNS domain name (e.g. c1.sysinst.ida.liu.se). You may use any hostnames you want, but router, server, client-1 and client-2 are recommended.
Addresses Consult the address plan for details on what addresses to use.
Choosing the right computer
In order to avoid problems, you will be assigned a primary workstation to use. You may use any other computer as well, but you should store your project files on your primary workstation. Note that sysi-05 does not exist, so sys-04 and sysi-06 are used by three groups each.
The lab serie consists of all the labs listed below. These PDF files are designed to be printed full size on a double-sided printer.
