Things to do after TFM server install

There are several things to do after TFM server 3.4 ( 4.0 alfa ) installation :

  1.   Activate the network
  • mkdir -p /etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.eth0
  • mcedit /etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.eth0/ipv4

And put your network configuration like this:
ONBOOT=yes
ONHOTPLUG=yes
SERVICE=ipv4-static
PREFIX=24
IP=86.120.142.156
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
BROADCAST=86.120.142.255
GATEWAY=86.120.142.129

  • mcedit /etc/resolv.conf

And add the follwing line:

nameserver 193.231.236.25

Test the machine network by pinging and doing some traceroutes

 

2. Update the machine to latest available server packages

  •  disable in /etc/apt/apt.conf signature check. It should look like this:

// Uncomment to disable GPG-signature checking for packages
GPG-Check "false";
// Uncomment to prevent kernel being handled along with (dist-)upgrade

  • To get the server up to date run apt-get dist-upgrade
  • If kernel gets updated don’t forget to run lilo and reboot the system

If you are running in vmware environment now would be a good time to make a snapshot of the machine before customizing it further. Because now you have a perfectly viable clean TFM server machine that you can work with.
