IT 3100: Systems Design and Administration I
System Install 01
Due according to the class schedule.
In this assignment you will create four virtual machines to use in future assignments. Eventually, each of these machines will provide a specific set of services. These are the services they will provide:
- master domain name server
- slave domain name server
- smtp (mail) server
- http (web) server
- Create four virtual machines. Probably each machine should have an 8GB hd. Use 512 MB of RAM for install.
- Configure each machine to be graded.
- Submit the text file to the course submissions.
- Check the grading report and fix any problems.
- You are free to choose names, but you’ll want a scheme you can remember throughout the semester.
- You are free to assign IP addresses within your assigned values, but you’ll want to use a scheme that keeps things organized throughout the semester.
- Pay careful attention to network settings. Check your notes from class. Some network settings errors will appear to work now, but will cause errors later in the semester. Here is an install video for help.
- Install the
openssh-serverpackage. This is necessary for remote access by you and the grader.
- Follow the instructions for authorizing the grader to access each system.
Authorizing the Grader
On each system, complete these steps, as
wget http://cit.dixie.edu/it/3100/sources/install_key.bash chmod +x ./install_key.bash ./install_key.bash rm ./install_key.bash apt-get install openssh-server
Submission File Format
The submission file is a UNIX text file, and must have this format, exactly!
The file must be named
ip: ip_address_of_one_system ip: ip_address_of_another_system ip: ip_address_of_another_system ip: ip_address_of_another_system
For example, it may look like this:
ip: 18.104.22.168 ip: 22.214.171.124 ip: 126.96.36.199 ip: 188.8.131.52
Submission and Passoff
- Use the Submisions link at the top of the page to submit your text file with your host information in it.
- Check back at the submissions site for feedback on the completeness of your work. Fix anything that’s wrong. Repeat.
