FAI-Tools

Jan Jansen sent me an interesting tool that should help with management of the FAI configdir get the file

his mail:

Hi,
As long as there were no responses to this posting, i don't dealed with
this idea (GPL) but if some user would find it usefull that would be
also nice for me because i don't have that much time anymore now to fix
all known (and probably unknown) bugs alone. A problem could also be the
currently, only with shell-options available, documentation.
So i post some hints here:
- if a file doc/<class> exists in your fairep, it will be shown as
class-description in info mode
- new script styles ([0-9][0-9]-*) can cause little errors
- some extravagant string values can cause qouting errors (shell
problem)
- create mode not fully funtional

Installation:
Unzip the archive to a directory and adjust the lib and tmp paths in
file 'ftool' to the right place. Now the script should be funtional.
Keep attention to test it the first times with a copy of your repository
to not destroy your classes/files in case of missusing or unexpected
errors (which hopefully aren't that much).

FAI development and testing helpers

I created some scripts that help setting up a FAI developemnt environment, and running builds and tests in there. At the moment it's mostly about creating fai-cd's and testing them in a qemu vm. Eventually I will add functions for network installation testing with a real hardware host and a qemu client, as well as testing network install with a qemu hist and a qemu client. I am quite interested if someboy finds them useful, they are in subversion:

fast fai-cd creation script

when developing a new fai-cd it can happen that you need to create new fai-cd's very often. It gets annoying that you always need to delete fai-mirror and the old image... unless you use a script like this (change your tmp path for image and mirror):

#!/bin/sh

FAI_MIRROR_LOCATION=/data/produktion/tmp/fai-mirror

DATE=`date +%Y-%m-%d_%h-%M-%S`

if [ -z $1 ];then
  CDIMAGE=/data/produktion/tmp/fai-cd_${DATE}.iso
  echo "using default cdimage location $CDIMAGE"
else
  CDIMAGE=$1
fi

if [ -z $FAI_MIRROR_LOCATION ]; then
  echo "error - FAI_MIRROR_LOCATION is empty - exiting"
  exit 1
else
  echo "cleaning up fai-mirror at $FAI_MIRROR_LOCATION"
  rm -r $FAI_MIRROR_LOCATION
fi


mkdir -p $FAI_MIRROR_LOCATION

fai-mirror -a $FAI_MIRROR_LOCATION

CDIMAGE_BACKUP=${CDIMAGE}_bak_date +%Y-%m-%d_%h-%M-%S

if [ -f $CDIMAGE ];then
  echo "moving old cd image to $CDIMAGE_BACKUP"
fi

fai-cd -m $FAI_MIRROR_LOCATION $CDIMAGE

turn kernel bootprompt parameters into classes

Every kernel parameter after the -- separator is changed to uppercase and used as a classname.

class/35-bootprompt :

#!/usr/bin/perl
# this will define classes from all kernel parameters that
# appear after a parameter '--', as defined in $separator
use strict;
use warnings;

my $separator = '--';

my $seen;
foreach ( split /\s+/, `cat /proc/cmdline` )
{
  if ( $_ eq $separator )
  {
    $seen = 1;
    next;
  }
  next unless $seen;
  print uc $_, "\n"
    if m/^\w+$/;

Define a class for a list of hosts

This makes it easy to maintain lists of hosts that should share a class.

Just write a list into a file $FAI_CONFIG/class/FOO.list and it will define your (arbitrary) class FOO for each host that appears in that file.

Thus, a new class GRONK is created and defined for hosts zapp and whirr by simply creating a file GRONK.list that looks like this

foo
bar

class/55-host-lists :

#!/bin/sh
# checks for an appearance of this host's name in each list and, if it
# finds this host in any of the lists, will print the name of the
# list (without the postfix '.list')
#
for thislist in *.list ; do
	thisclass=$(basename $thislist .list)
	egrep -q "\<$HOSTNAME\>" $thislist && echo $thisclass
done

dmidetect : define classes based on dmidecode and lspci output

This script is run in the $FAICONFIG/class space to define classes based on information reported by the dmidecode and lspci programs. In particular, we use it to extract the manufacturer and product ID of the machine, which allows us to handle specific hardware types simply. For each hardware model, it may generate one or more classes, from most to least specific. For example, for a generation 5 HP ProLiant DL380 server, it generates the following class list:

PROLIANT DL380 DL380-G5

As it stands, it also looks for QLogic qla2xxx fiberchannel devices, and sets a class appropriately, so if the above server also had one of these cards, the class list printed would be:

PROLIANT DL380 DL380-G5 QLA2XXX

The program is designed to be easily extensible to new hardware types, and to look for arbitrary PCI devices. The version as presented is fairly limited, and understands the following hardware models only:

  • Most HP ProLiant servers (but not blades - yet)
  • Sun X4?00 servers
  • Most IBM Blade servers
  • RLX Blade servers
  • Some HP Deskpro and EVO desktops

A third thing this script does for us is for Desktop class machines, where we used Dynamic DNS. We don't want to have to harvest MAC addresses, so what we do is use the machine's asset tag number as its hostname. This is just another piece of the dmidecode output, so it's easy to pick up here and then override the hostname FAI was going to use. This means that the procedure for installing a desktop here at Sanger is simply to enter its asset tag number in its BIOS, and then PXE boot it. Nothing else is required.

Here's the script:

#!/usr/bin/perl

# This program detects the type of machine on which it is running using the
# output of lspci and dmidetect, and prints out classes appropriately.

# This tries to be as generic as possible, and sets a number of
# classes for a given host, steadily more specific.  See the section
# for the IBM Blades as an example.

# To add a new host type:
#
# 1) Run the program as it stands with the -d option, which will print out
#    the appropriate sections from the dmidecode output, and also a full
#    lspci listing.
#
# 2) Use the above information to add a case to the general_machine_class
#    function.
#
# 3) pci_card_classes is for defining classes which can apply to multiple
#    machine types.  Currently the only entry is QLA2XXX which is defined
#    if a QLogic QLA2XXX fibrechannel adapter is found

2 suggestions

resilience

Since the fai administrator can't influence the content of these fields it's probably a good idea to prefix the dmidecode provided values with some kind of identifier to make it at least more unlikely that some of these values conflict with other FAI classes.

e.g.:

'HWTYPE_PROLIANT' instead of 'PROLIANT'

code improvement

instead of code like

local *LSPCI;
local $/ = "\n";
my $info;
    
open(LSPCI, "lspci -m|") or die "Could not run lspci : $!";
@$info = (<LSPCI>);
close LSPCI;
print @$info if ($opt{'d'});
return $info;

use something like this

local $/ = "\n";
my @info;

open my $fh, '-|', 'lspci -m') or die "Could not run lspci : $!";
@info = <$fh>;
close $fh;
print @info if ($opt{'d'});
return \@info;
  • use dynamically generated variable instead of fixed name typeglob for filehandles (reliably avoid any kind of namespace conflict)
  • use three-argument open instead of two-argument form (in this case it's a bit redundant but in general it's a good idea in order to avoid any kind of side-effect)
  • defer turning array into reference until needed (more obvious what is going on)
  • (suggestion) use '' instead of "" if no variables are to be evaluated inside string

Additionally: Setting $/ ('output record separator') may be unnecessary.

code snippets are untested

fai-conf-update

Update the FAI config space according to the changes on the running FAI server. produces a shell script so that this tool can be run on any host installed with FAI. the resulting shell script can be used to update the configuration space. For now, only the FAI server config can be updated, as the clients do not have write permission to the FAI config space on the server.

fai-conf-update

#! /bin/sh
# fai-conf-update
# script to update the FAI configspace based on FAI Classes.
#
# ToDo:
# - update of the package config
# - flags to change output: output in patch form.
# - tesing of installscripts with the new config on the running installserver
# 
# FixMe:
# -ugly grep after the find. 
#
# Thanks:
# -fly out to MT for first fixes, MrFai for FAI, h01ger for motivation!

SHELLSCRIPT="/root/update_fai.sh"

if [ -f $SHELLSCRIPT ]; then
    echo "$SHELLSCRIPT exists, aborting."
    exit 1
fi

# Loop through the classes

for i in $CLASSES; do

#    Find the config files, strip off the class name in the end
#    loop through the files

    for j in `find $FAI_CONFIGSPACE/files -type f -name ".svn" -prune -o -name $i -print | grep -v \.svn`; do
	name=`echo $j | sed "s#$FAI_CONFIGSPACE/files##"| sed s/\\\/$i//`

	if [ -f $name ]; then
	    if  ! diff -q $name $j  >& /dev/null ; then
		echo "class $i needs update from $name to $j"
		echo "cp $name $j" >> $SHELLSCRIPT
	    fi
	    if [ ! -f $name ]; then
		echo file "$name is not existing on this machine, removing it from the config space"
		echo "rm $j" >> $SHELLSCRIPT
	    fi
	fi
    done
done

echo "review the results in $SHELLSCRIPT and run it to actually update the FAI config space."

I consider this to be a neat thing together with fai-cd: Install your server with FAI. Run the server. As needs change with time, the config files need to be updated. run fai-cd, the result will be a clone of the old server which is adapted to new hardware with FAI. This script is a starter to do this automatically, see the FixMe and ToDo in the script. Could result in a kind of automatik FAI evolution. ;)

Configure FAI classes depending on IP addresses or a network the host is in

getFAIClassesFromIP.pl does loop up if there is an entry for the given 'ip_address' or a subnet including 'ip_address' in the 'network.conf' file and return the FAI classes specified for the fitting entries as a space separated list to stdout.

For the format of 'network.conf' see the examples file provided.


The script:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
#
# getFAIClassesFromIP.pl
#
# Get the FAI classes configured for a given IP address out of a given
# network.conf file.

dependencies between classes

(Note that suggestions for solving this issue were also files as Debian bug #498412, which includes the information shown below plus discussions.)

just wrote a script that implements dependencies between fai classes and ask for including it in fai.

how does it work? put this script in $FAI/class and make it executable. Now, e.g. you have a class WORDPRESS that depends on the classes VHOST and POSTGRES . VHOST again may depend on WEBSERVER. So if you want to install the blogging software wordpress, you add a file

$FAI/class/WORDPRESS.deps

that contains the words VHOST POSTGRES

and a file $FAI/class/VHOST.deps

that contains the word WEBSERVER

The order often is important, so this script is taking care of it. The order of the example above would be: WEBSERVER VHOST POSTGRES WORDPRESS That way, in $FAI/scripts/ first the webserver would be configured, then the vhosts, ...

It removes double entries from FAI_CLASSES and handles circular dependencies[1].


Calling this file from withing defclass is not perfect: dependencies for $HOSTNAME and LAST are not possible. A solution could be, to call this script right after fai-class is called in task defclass.

here is the code 90-class-dependencies

--Ingo Wichmann / Linuxhotel 17 Jan 2006 (CET)

Alternative Depency and Conflict Handling

The main differences between this alternative 90-dependencies.source and the above 90-class-dependencies by Ingo Wichmann are

  • Handles conflicts between classes in addition to dependencies.
  • Dependency and conflict rules can be declared statically in plain text or generated dynamically at install/update time by scripts or executables.
  • Implemented in shell script as opposed to perl.
  • Does not remove duplicate class specifications and goes haywire on circular dependencies.
  • Conflict handling (or rather: the removal of classes from the class list) circumvents the documented FAI API and may break if this aspect of the FAI architecture changes.

Both scripts are used in a rather similar fashion. The details are documented at the top of the source code.

Yet Another Approach

Michael Tautschnig uses the following very basic version as $FAI/class/02more.sh:

 base_class=`grep "^$HOSTNAME " $FAI/class/CLASSES | awk '{ print $2 }'`
 for class in $classes $base_class ; do
   [ "$class" = "$HOSTNAME" ] && continue
   [ -f $FAI/class/$class ] && cat $FAI/class/$class
 done
 if [ "$base_class" = "$HOSTNAME" ] ; then
   exit 0
 fi
 echo $base_class

and a $FAI/class/CLASSES file that has entries like these:

 gnat DNS 
 bull bull
 cola SHELL_SERVER
 calf MAILRELAY
 wasp XEN0

Faiwatch (evaluate softupdate logs)

Faiwatch is a script for summarizing softupdate-logs of many hosts.

partition.WINDOWS: Resize single existing NTFS partition before install

I wrote up a little hook script that expects a single NTFS partition on a disk and resizes it to a given size. The according disk_config should preserve this partition then and for me, must be caleld manually with setup-storage at the end of the hook script because although the documentation states otherwise, FAI does not honour the order of classes when selecting a disk_config script.

 # Config
 DEV="/dev/sda"                        # Disk device
 PART=1                                # Partition number

 SIZE=21000                            # Target size in MB
 
 # Dumb code - do not change anything if more than one partition exists
 if [[ ! -e ${DEV}2 ]]; then
  # Mark filesystem clean
  ntfsfix -d ${DEV}${PART}
 
  # Clean up roaming profiles before resizing
  if [ ${CLEAN} ]; then
   # Create mountpoint
   mkdir -p ${MNT}
   mount -o rw ${DEV}${PART} ${MNT}
 
   # Delete all profiles that do not start with capital letter
   # Dumb replacement for statically listing Default User, Local, ...
   if [[ -d "${MNT}/${DIR}" ]]; then
    pushd "${MNT}/${DIR}"
    ls | grep -v "^[A-Z]" | xargs rm -rf
    popd
   fi
 
   # Unmount
   sync
   umount ${MNT}
  fi
 
  # Resize filesystem
  ntfsresize -ff --size ${SIZE}M ${DEV}${PART}
 
  # Find partition start sector
  # Workaround for non-functional gparted resize command
  sector=$(parted -m -s ${DEV} unit s print | grep ^1 | cut -d: -f2 | sed -e 's/s$//')
 
  # Create new partition table
  parted -s ${DEV} unit s mklabel msdos mkpart primary ${sector}s $((SIZE+500))M
  sync
 fi
 
 # Run setup-storage manually for this class
 # Workaround for FAI not sticking to order of classes in task partition
 setup-storage -X -d -f /var/lib/fai/config/disk_config/WINDOWS
 
 # Done!
