The Shernet LAN is now running Calypso 0.1.4 for DHCP and DNS. Hopefully this week I will get authentication for clients setup (need to update the script to work with Ubuntu), and I’ll be on my way to some real testing!
You want DHCP with DDNS? Well, ya got it.
So far the fruits of the summer include:
calypso-client: registers a Linux client with the Calypso server
dhcp-installer: setups a calypso client server with DHCP with dynamic updating to PowerDNS with an LDAP backend.
Next up: Mail. Then I can move my network over to Calypso native 🙂
Over the weekend, the Calypso core services installer hit 0.1.0. I’m satisfied that it should work with any version of Centos, Fedora, or RHEL. It includes OpenLDAP, Kerberos, DNS, Samba, and NTP functionality. The next steps will be further testing of the installer, making it work on Debian/Ubuntu, and working on the installers for ancillary services.
Calypso authentication is working! LDAP meets Kerberos meets Samba meets can you believe I can log in have my ticket waiting for me and off I go?
Calypso aims to be the backbone of all software developed here. If all goes according to plan, it will use existing open source software, coupled with a yet-to-be developed management interface, to be an all-in-one authentication/network configuration server.
Projects are on their way. Much more information to follow.
