So me and Henry have been creating static leases for each machine on the network and giving them new hostnames. The layout will be like last year just different hostnames. Should be done by Monday and then working on Tuesday. (Need to reboot the LTSP server or restart dhcp for it to take effect).

Here's a more verbose version.

Today, Steve Henry and I looked over a list of phobias and decided on some to be the hostnames for the lab, before going and editing the hostname files in each computer we had time for. While I Henry edited the hostnames I Henry also called out the MAC addresses to Steve me, and he I entered them into dhcpd.conf on the LTSP server, setting up static IPs for each of them in the same scheme as last year. As per Jeff's request, getting the lab ready for the October 16th meeting will be our top priority, and we will continue this on Monday. About half the lab should have static IPs and updated hostnames now, and we should be able to finish the other half on monday.

Phobias and Static Leases

So me and Henry are both working on assigning static leases to every machine on the network. We're going to map out the IP addresses like last year where the machine IP address is based on the order of the machines in the lab. Here's the forum post that we're using to assign static IPs since Ubuntu Server Guide wasn't any help. (Neither was Google, apparently there are many ways to say static lease!)

Now what is this of Phobias you ask? Well we decided to make every computer's hostname a phobia. You can thank The Phobia List for the phobias.

Apparently Firefox thinks my entire blog post is spelled incorrectly. Now I can't tell if something is incorrect D:
