Information necessary for keeping boss and ops node up-to-date. This
file contains updates that must be made outside of the database and
the intall tree (ie. /usr/testbed).

This file is in the same format at the FreeBSD UPDATING file, whis is
to say, in reverse chronological order, with the date of the change
in YYYYMMDD format.

After each date, you will find one of the following, which tells you
when the action needs to be performed.

Before build - before doing a 'gmake' in your testbed object tree on
	boss and/or ops	
After install - after doing a 'gmake boss-install' on boss or
    'gmake ops-install' on ops

Note that some instructions may have steps that need to occur at a few
different points in the install process - these are marked with the
earliest time one of the steps needs to occur.

20041104: Before build
	A new directory, pxe/freebsd, contains the diffs necessary
	to build your own pxeboot program more easily.  The entry
	for 20040112 below instructs you to "Rebuild pxeboot kernel
	from source".  Now you can actually do that!  See the README
	file in pxe/freebsd.  You should rebuild your pxeboot program
	to take advantage of a couple of new features: the ability
	to specify an explicit machine from which to TFTP load a file,
	and the ability to specify command lines to Linux (actually,
	to LILO).

	You will need to update your frisbee/freebsd MFSes to take
	full advantage of recent changes.  A new file, doc/update-mfs.txt,
	describes the process.  Read it. Believe it. Live by it.

	The ulsshxmlrpcpp package was updated to version 0.1.1:

	     http://boss.emulab.net/downloads/ulsshxmlrpcpp-0.1.1.tar.gz

             cd /someplace
	     tar zxf ulsshxmlrpcpp-0.1.1.tar.gz
	     cd ulsshxmlrpcpp-0.1.1
	     configure

20041027: After install (be sure to update sitevars):

	A new sitevariable was added to hold root's ssh public key.
	When nodes boot using the latest image, the public key is
	handed across via tmcd and statshed in /root/.ssh. This
	localizes the image (wrt the root pub key) to the local
	testbed.

	Using the web interface in red dot mode, go to the Edit Site
	Variables link and store boss:/root/.ssh/identity.pub into the
	"node/ssh_pubkey" site variable. Make sure there are no
	newlines when you paste it in.

	Run "/usr/testbed/etc/rc.d/and start" as root on ops to start
	up the auto nice daemon.  This daemon is not required,
	however, it can save you from greedy users that consume too
	much CPU and cause experiment swapin to fail.

        * Create the emulab-ops/opsnode experiment. Do this the same way
          that hwdown is created in setup-db.txt.

	* Create a node_types entry for ops. This is mostly just a stub
	  entry so that tmcd will recognize it and so that other parts of
	  the system are happy. Be sure that you get the interface correct,
232
	  and set the Default OSID to emulab-ops-OPSNODE-BSD. The type is

	  connect to the event server are redirected to users.emulab.net.
	  Be sure to replace boss.foo.bar with the right name.

		sudo inetd -a boss.foo.bar -p /var/run/testbed-inetd.pid \

	Fixed the way we handle the certificate for capture with tiptunnel.
	We no longer hard-code the certificate digest in nodetipacl.php3 .
	However, as a result, we must place this fingerprint in a publically-
	readable file on boss. So, if you have serial lines that you're
	running with capture:
	1) Copy your /usr/testbed/etc/capture.pem file from your tipserver to
	boss, if it isn't there already.
	2) In /usr/testbed/etc/ on boss, run: 'openssl x509 -sha -noout
	-fingerprint -in capture.pem > capture.fingerprint', and make this
	file world-readable.

	the database with names longer than 10 characters.

	Re-worked the way named_setup handles virtual nodes and unroutable
	IP addresses - no point in handling the two differently. Thus, the
	'vnodes.<OURDOMAIN>.db' DNS zone file is no longer generated.
	Instead, if you have a mix of routable and unroutable IP addresses,
	you'll need to switch to using the '<OURDOMAIN>.internal.db' zone
	file - see Step 6 of doc/setup.txt for instructions on setting up
	this file.

       * Restart dhcpd.
