In many of the more relaxed civilizations of Linode, the Hitchhiker's Guide has already supplanted the great Encyclopaedia Galactica as the standard repository of all knowledge and wisdom, for though it has many omissions and contains much that is apocryphal, or at least wildly inaccurate, it scores over the older, more pedestrian work in two important respects.

Common Information

All nodes are present on the Dallas, TX Linode Datacenter, and have static IPs. From within the nodes themselves, we have a local DNS allowing them to refer to each other under the li694-22 TLD (a reference to our original pre-launch URL).

  • All nodes support kerberos authetication to allow node-for-node access
  • shell access is only allowed from desiginated nodes.
  • LDAP and Kerberos is available on all nodes unless noted
  • sysops can access all nodes, they are not explicately listed below
Node Name Public Addresses Who Can Acces (POSIX groups) Is Running What
hydrogen prod_access slashd, varnish, apache 1.3, nginx
helium None db mysql (prod master)

ldap (master) Kerberos KDC (master) BIND (master, li694-22 zone)

beryllium svcadmin A lot of stuff, mechanicjay, fill me in?
  • This node is not LDAPed or KRB5ed, needs its own username/passwords
lithium dev_team slashd, varnish, apache 1.3, nginx, mysql (dev DB)
boron {staff,status} firefighters apache 2.2 (userdir)

KDC slave DNS slave for li694-22 LDAP slave (not fully setup)

carbon ircops IRC server, services & httpd

Naming Scheme

Nodes are named after the periodic table of elements, which should keep us good for a long while. Keep going up in order until we finally run out.
