Mysql

Thunder is a mysql replication slave. The replication user is called replication, the password for this is in pwsafe. The mysql docs on how to set this up are fairly good. The procedure for resyncing this with the master is documented on the mysql page.

Known Issues

  • The onboards SATA ports appear not to work

  • It doesn't like talking to USB keyboards.

  • One of the older disks (disk 2), may be dodgy. They were both dodgy. They died. I cried.
