nixCraft: "I want to copy (rsync to remote server) a directory tree whenever file uploaded or deleted in /var/www/html/upload/ directory under Linux operating systems for backup purpose and/or load balancing purpose without getting into complex file sharing setup such as NFS or GFS iscsi storage."
I don't know if I'm missing something but when I'm mounting additional iSCSI volumes to a said server to add additional storage to a server I'm not seeing a way to mount the volume after running a discovery command.
The reasoning I want to be able to do this is that we're running an application that would require downtime everytime we add additional iSCSI volumes to this server.
My first time in the Linux Distro-specific part of the forum! I am curious if any of you big brains in here know how I turn on services without using the chkconfig command? I am PXE booting a diskless client running Centos6.4 and trying to configure an iSCSI drive for it to use.
I'm not too sure what I'm overlooking, I feel like this should be simple, but after reading some docs on technet it might be a timing issue on services.
For some reason after I reboot any of our 2008 R2 file servers our iSCSI Initiator will not reconnect to the target. The target is in the favorite (persistent) list, and it doesn't have any authentication required.
Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) On Ubuntu 12.04 (Initiator And Target)
This guide explains how you can set up an AoE target and an AoE initiator (client), both running Ubuntu 12.04. AoE
stands for "ATA over Ethernet" and is a storage area network (SAN)
protocol which allows AoE initiators to use storage devices on the
(remote) AoE target using normal ethernet cabling.
