251# Install the Python eggs and Ruby gems and PEAR/PECL doohickeys that are on
252# the other servers and do not have RPMs.
253# The general mode of operation will be to run the "list" command
254# on both servers, see what the differences are, check if those diffs
255# are packaged up as rpms, and install them (rpm if possible, native otherwise)
256# - Look at /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages and
257#           /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages for Python eggs and modules.
258#   There will be a lot of gunk that was installed from packages;
259#   easy-install.pth will tell you what was easy_installed.
260#   First use 'yum search' to see if the relevant package is now available
261#   as an RPM, and install that if it is.  If not, then use easy_install.
262#   Pass -Z to easy_install to install them unzipped, as some zipped eggs
263#   want to be able to write to ~/.python-eggs.  (Also makes sourcediving
264#   easier.)
265# - Look at `gem list` for Ruby gems.
266#   Again, use 'yum search' and prefer RPMs, but failing that, 'gem install'.
267#       ezyang: rspec-rails depends on rspec, and will override the Yum
268#       package, so... don't use that RPM yet
269# - Look at `pear list` for Pear fruits (or whatever they're called).
270#   Yet again, 'yum search' for RPMs before resorting to 'pear install'.  Note
271#   that for things in the beta repo, you'll need 'pear install package-beta'.
272#   (you might get complaints about the php_scripts module; ignore them)
273# - Look at `pecl list` for PECL things.  'yum search', and if you must,
274#   'pecl install' needed items. If it doesn't work, try 'pear install
275#   pecl/foo' or 'pecl install foo-beta' or those two combined.
276    # Automating this... will require a lot of batonning between
277    # the servers. Probably best way to do it is to write an actual
278    # script.
280# Setup some Python config

283# Install the credentials.  There are a lot of things to remember here:
284#   o This will be different if you're setting up our build/update server.
285#   o You probably installed the machine keytab long ago
286    ls -l /etc/krb5.keytab
287#   o Use ktutil to combine the host/ and
288#     host/ keys with host/ in
289#     the keytab.  Do not use 'k5srvutil change' on the combined keytab
290#     or you'll break the other servers. (real servers only)
291#   o The daemon.scripts keytab
292    ls -l /etc/daemon.keytab
293#   o The SSL cert private key (real servers only)
294#   o The LDAP password for the signup process (real servers only)
295#   o The SQL password for the signup process (real servers only)
296#   o The whoisd password (real servers only)
297#   o The LDAP keytab for this server, which will be used later (real servers only)
298#   o Replace the ssh host keys with the ones common to all scripts servers (real servers only)
299#   o You'll install an LDAP certificate signed by the scripts CA later (real servers only)
300#   o Make sure root's .k5login is correct
301    cat /root/.k5login
302#   o Make sure logview's .k5login is correct (real servers only)
304# If you are setting up a test server, pay attention to
305# /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and do not bind scripts' IP address.
306# You will also need to modify:
307#   o /etc/ldap.conf
308#       add: host
309#   o /etc/nss-ldapd.conf
310#       replace: uri *****
311#       with: uri ldap://
312#   o /etc/openldap/ldap.conf
313#       add: URI ldap://
314#            BASE dc=scripts,dc=mit,dc=edu
315#   o /etc/httpd/conf.d/vhost_ldap.conf
316#       replace: VhostLDAPUrl ****
317#       with: VhostLDAPUrl "ldap://,dc=scripts,dc=mit,dc=edu"
318#   o /etc/postfix/virtual-alias-{domains,maps}
319#       replace: server_host *****
320#       with: server_host = ldap://
