Assignment 1 Part 1 - Due 13th of October 2015 @ 23:59:59

In this assignment you will set up the basic functionality for a virtual machine to act as a basis for the later assignments. In assignment 1 part 2 you will clone this machine and configure the clone to meet the requirements of that assignment.
This machine will exist as part of a network. During this assignment you are not responsible for these other machines. They are there to add context to the work you do, and the later assignments will involve some of them, so you will need to create this network now. The table below shows the class-c network you will be adding machines to:

Machine Name IP address Role
cumulonimbus.clouds.ops (Your existing host)
  • External - DHCP assigned
  • Internal (virbr1) - 172.20.18.1
Gateway/Firewall
stratus.clouds.ops 172.20.18.7 Master DNS server
stratocumulus.clouds.ops 172.20.18.13 Slave DNS server
cirrus.clouds.ops 172.20.18.6 Mail server
altostratus.clouds.ops 172.20.18.11 Master NIS server
altocumulus.clouds.ops 172.20.18.21 Slave NIS server
cirrocumulus.clouds.ops 172.20.18.12 ftp server
cumulus.clouds.ops 172.20.18.17 Samba server
nimbostratus.clouds.ops 172.20.18.22 nfs server
pileus.clouds.ops 172.20.18.16 Web server
orographic.clouds.ops 172.20.18.10 Remote backups
fog.clouds.ops 172.20.18.99 Cloning Source
Note that this class-C network will also include a number of dhcp assigned client machines in the range 172.20.18.100-172.20.18.254.

Assignment details

You need to install and configure a single Fedora 22 server (fog.clouds.ops), and provide a testing plan that shows what steps you took to ensure your installation worked as intended.

Testing Plan

Your submission must include a description of the steps you took to ensure that your server is configured correctly. Note that this is not a list of every step you took to configure your machine, but a record of tests you ran just before it 'goes live'.

Assignment submission and grading

If your prof is Andrew Smith - submit your document on Blackboard and show you working system in the lab the same week.
