TDDI09 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.
Make sure you meet the deadlines posted on the course home page!
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.
Sharing virtual machines You cannot run the same group's virtual machines from more than one account at a time. If you do, only one group will have Internet connectivity. If you want both group members to be able to start the virtual machines from their own accounts, then adjust the permissions on the files installed on one of the accounts, and run everything from there. You are on your own here -- your lab assistant will probably not have time to help you troubleshoot this kind of setup.
All labs are done remotely on the server marsix.ida.liu.se. To log in, ssh firstname.lastname@example.org, where user is your IDA username.
The lab series consists of all the labs listed below. These PDF files are designed to be printed full size on a double-sided printer.
