Setting up a simple CTDB Samba cluster

As of April 2007 you can setup a simple Samba3 or Samba4 CTDB cluster, running either on loopback (with simulated nodes) or on a real cluster with TCP. This page will tell you how to get started.

Getting the code

You need two source trees, one is a copy of Samba3 with clustering patches, and the other is the ctdb code itself. Both source trees are stored in bzr repositories. See http://bazaar-vcs.org/ for more information on bzr.

The fastest way to checkout an initial copy of the Samba3 tree with clustering patches is:

  rsync -avz samba.org::ftp/unpacked/samba_3_0_ctdb .

To update this tree when improvements are made in the upstream code do this:

   cd samba_3_0_ctdb
   bzr merge http://samba.org/~tridge/samba_3_0_ctdb

To get an initial checkout of the ctdb code do this:

  rsync -avz samba.org::ftp/unpacked/ctdb .

To update this tree when improvements are made in the upstream code do this:

   cd ctdb
   bzr merge http://samba.org/~tridge/ctdb
