Heureka! The first bunch of SunRays went live yesterday. The are served by SunVDI, using VirtualBox for the VMs and Windows7 Enterprise as guest OS.
You may have guessed. Samba4 is running as DC.
The most annoying bit of the last day was the central Infoblox DHCP server. That thing is pretty stupid in terms of in what order it hands out DHCP options.
We found it to give the options in this order:
- based on host object
- entire network
- based on subnet
So since there already was another SunRay installation and we couldn't provide the required options based on the subnet the guys from central network management are now busy setting up the DHCP option for every DTU I have to install. Not nice, but works for now. I guess this will get funny when we move to another building in two years and the IP addresses of the servers change...
