Description

7 years ago
In bug 588957 I am trying to setup our linux 64-bit ref image but I am lacking the right partitions to continue this work. The OS was originally installed in bug 597057.

Could you please fix this for me? I am afraid I should not be doing resizing of partitions myself but ask one of you to do it as you actually know what you are doing. I actually believe that I can't do it myself from reading this: "The partition that is to be resized must be unmounted when we do the resizing; obviously this is not possible if this is the partition that holds all important system files".

We need /builds to be matched with /dev/sda4 (make it as large as you can; it is 199GB on the linux-ref machine) and /var to be matched with /dev/sda2.

My apologies for not knowing this when I originally asked for the machine to be setup.

I forgot to setup the priority.
This blocks me but the world won't fall apart if you don't get to it exactly this minute :)

This will need a colo-trip. Will need to re-install Centos5 using the partition scheme found on the 32bit machines. After installation, need to install build tools from the cd (make, gcc, kernel-headers), etc. Bring a USB flash drive with the ethernet driver from Intel. This will need to be compiled on the box and installed before everything will work.

Assigning to jlazaro, as I'll be out most of the week. If it doesn't happen this week, I can take it next week.

Quick question, have you guys considered using a liveCD to boot from it and be able to resize the partitions and create new ones? I think I read it before filing this bug. I believe it will save you the headache of re-imaging. Whatever it works better.

This isn't necessary an onsite trip if you can do it over IPMI, right?

I will be done builduty and beta7 this week and would like to know if I could tackle this first thing next week.

I'll see if I can do this by mounting the insall CD over IPMI. I'll try to get it done today.

jlazaro what were the results of your attempt last night?
This is blocking quarterly goal work for Armen. 

Any chance this will happen (today) before the US long weekend so Armen can make progress on this while others are out?

Is this something local RelEng (or remote, it's IPMI) can handle?  We're short handed here.

IPMI is out of question according to comment 7.

Could very detailed instructions be given so we can consider being it done by releng?
Machine is ready, go go go!
Did this through IPMI :)

Thanks jlazaro!
I can see that we know have a /builds partition. Let's see how puppet behaves now that it has the partition it wants to install things into!
