cloudstore100{8,9} - Upgrade to 10GbE
Closed, ResolvedPublic


cloudstore1008 and cloudstore1009 are NFS file servers (with +65TB capacity).

They are currently on 1GbE which will be problematic for their use case.

They won't use DRBD, most likely will have hourly syncs instead. Finally, they aren't in use yet so any maintenance is best done before we start using them.

cloudstore1008 is in a5
cloudstore1009 and its array are in a6

@Cmjohnson attempted to address the 10G options during the racking and setup on T193655#4264714.

So, it seems in prior conversations on that task, there was a requirement for 10G and also to be in the same row or adjacent racks? Can we clarify exactly what is needed? If it is just 10G, and they don't have to be in the same row, it makes this much easier to accomplish.

It seems the requirement to be side-by-side might have been because we were planning to use DRBD and needed a direct host-to-host connection but we're not pursuing DRBD anymore.

In discussing this with the WMCS team, the requirement to be side-by-side can be dropped and the servers can be relocated as necessary. Thanks in advance.

@GTirloni I do not have room in row A. These can go into Row D racks D2 and D7. Doing this will require a DNS (ip) change and I will have to fix the servers to use the 10G NIC. A re-install of the OS will be needed. I would like to do at least one on February 7th at 1600UTC (11am EST). If we can do both that would be great but can stagger so I move the 2nd server the following week. Please confirm that this will work for you.

@Cmjohnson that works for me. We can do both if time allows.

Ok, assisting in this I've done the following:

  • removed cloudstore100[89] from asw2-a-eqiad(ge-5/0/14 & ge-6/0/17) and cloudstore1009 from asw-a-eqiad:ge-6/0/17.
    • removed the descriptions, removed from public vlan, added to disabled group.
  • added both hosts to row D: cloudstore1008 xe-2/0/13 & cloudstore1009 xe-7/0/19 to the public vlan and enabled them

now working on the dns change to follow
