If you are checking back here every once in a while to look for Debian packages of HAProxy, you shouldn’t bother anymore. The Debian maintainers are currently doing a very good job at http://haproxy.debian.net/.

Just follow the instructions over there and you will be ready to go.

It seems like the new HP DL360G7 servers do not support the textcons command from iLO anymore without an ‘Advanced License’ installed. Since iLO and moreover the ability of using a remote console is one of the reasons we use the HP servers I was not amused. Luckily the Virtual Serial Port (VSP) is still free of license stuff so with a little fiddling around I got it working nicely.

Of course the is lots of documentation floating around on the net, but for my own memory I also wrote it down at http://www.roedie.nl/wiki/index.php?title=Debian_GNU/Linux_iLO3_Virtual_Serial_Port so I won’t forget it and others might find it useful.

Woah, 3 (three!) posts in one day… I’ve put up a new version of my check_3ware script.

And again, no thanks to me but to Simon Deziel and Stas (Станислав) for reporting a bug, sending in a patch, and a feature request. Now check_3ware will not issue a warning when an array is in verifying state.

I didn’t test the script since I do not have any 3ware hardware anymore, so get it here and use it at your own risk ;-)

There’s another way to create vlan interfaces with Debian/Ubuntu. It’s even shorter than the previous example. Just add the following to /etc/network/interfaces:

auto eth0.10
  iface eth0.10 inet static

Just make sure you dit ‘apt-get install vlan’ or something like that.
