Felix was constructed by Jared and Graham after Phoenix was unrecoverable without great effort. It was reformatted from the RAID 6 of Phoenix for the simplicity of the system and the expectation that nothing on Felix is really ever worth redundancy due to the likely inheritance of previous instability from Phoenix. It was permanently retired from VM hosting and dedicated to "research" use in Fall 2016; in its place, Hydra was commissioned.
Felix was installed (on 1/15/16) from a Debian CLI install flashdrive with 64 bit Debian 8.2 Jessie. (Kernel 3.16.7 as of 1/15/16)
Install settings were the typical Debian settings with / being on the first 1 TB hard drive, and /var on the second 1 TB hard drive. The network interface that is connected is eth1.
After we finished installing we added the following packages:
htop sudo vim libvirt0 libvirt-deamon libguestfs-tools p7zip-full virt-manager nvidia-legacy-304xx-driver screen rsync lm-sensors tmux dialog
The network interface is set up as follows:
source /etc/network/interfaces.d/* # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The hardware network interfaces allow-hotplug eth0 allow-hotplug eth1 allow-hotplug eth2 #The software network bridge (VM's route through this) auto br0 iface br0 inet static address 184.108.40.206 netmask 255.255.254.0 gateway 220.127.116.11 bridge_ports all
