I did my first upgrade of a lenny box to squeeze today; a test server in work. All went pretty smoothly but I had a handful of things I had to frob manually that I thought I’d write up here:
- collectd SNMP plugin needs MIBs or it won’t start: installed
ypbindto the Required-Start: line in
- NFS automounts now using NFSv4 instead of v3 and user/group mapping setting everything to nobody: Set
/etc/default/nfs-commonand ensure Domain in
/etc/idmapd.confis set to the correct domain name (look in
/var/log/daemon.logfor lines from rpc.idmapd saying “does not map into domain” to find out what this should be if you don’t know).
I think that’s pretty smooth overall; kudos to all those involved. I’ve a few more boxes to upgrade, but they’re all more likely to have people complaining at me if there are hiccups so they’ll have to wait until I have a suitable block of time set aside.
