In part 1 of this 2 part screencast series – We cover the installation of the soon to be released Project FiFo 0.6.0 Version. This is a major release with a ton of new features and some foundational changes to the underlying storage architecture. This is a single zone configuration and not a clustered configuration. Going forward Leofs will be a required part of all FiFo installations.

We will cover:

– LeoFS the highly scalable, fault-tolerant, S3 compatible large object storage for the Web.
– LeoFS dataset import.
– Provision new fifo zone using the LeoFS dataset.
– LeoFS FiFo storage node configuration.
– FiFo packages installation.
– FiFo 0.6.0 Setup & Configuration.
– FiFo 0.6.0 UI Overview and usage Guide (Part 2)
– New Feature Overview. (Part 2)

Things to watch out for!

Important If “leofs-adm status” command gives an error state for storage or gateway the first time you reboot issue the command:

leofs-adm resume storage_0@

DNS LeoFS storage needs DNS to be working and resolvable from your FiFo zone as WELL as the Global Zone of all your hypervisors in order for Chunter to work correctly. If your LeoFS endpoint is set to e.g. and your FiFo IP is then the following FQDN’s need to resolve to your FiFo IP.

No Central DNS – no problem. Add the FQDN’s to FiFo’s /etc/hosts file in the FiFo zone. You will also need to add them to /etc/hosts in the Global zone. Unfortunately the hosts file is lives in Ram and is reset upon SmartOS reboot. Luckily Chunter has a SMF service to ensure that /etc/hosts entries persist upon SmartOS reboots. To set it up, do the following:

Create the file and add your host entries to the file.

vi /opt/chunter/etc/hosts

Install the SMF Service

cp /opt/chunter/share/hosts.xml /opt/custom/smf/

svccfg import /opt/custom/smf/hosts.xml

After this the chunter dns entries will automatically appear in your /etc/hosts file and will survive reboots.
