Setting up an Ubuntu Installation to work with AOE

First make sure you have a server with soem aoe software installed. If you use Linux as a server, get and install the “vblade” package.

On the client side, install a standard Ubuntu Desktop on a physical or virtual machine. Use the following steps to make it aoe capable:

First, login, start a terminal and become root: Applications → Accessories → Terminal“:

Paste the following code into /etc/initramfs-tools/scripts/local-top/aoe

[code] #!/bin/sh

sleep 1 # Wait for network driver to load ip link set eth0 up # Activate the network interface sleep 3 # Wait for the network interface to become active echo 1 >/dev/etherd/discover # Start looking for aoe devices on the net [/code]

echo aoe »/etc/initramfs-tools/modules

Following is just brainstorming:

sudo -s # Become root apt-get install grub-pc # Install grub and make disk bootable

rm /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules rm /lib/udev/rules.d/75-persistent-net-generator.rules

echo aoe »/etc/initramfs-tools/modules

sleep 1 # Wait for network driver to load ip link set eth0 up # Activate the network interface sleep 3 # Wait for the network interface to become active echo 1 >/dev/etherd/discover # Start looking for aoe devices on the net

chmod +x /etc/initramfs-tools/scripts/local-top/aoe # Make your script executable update-initramfs -u # Update initrd to include your changes
