Hi. I'm a Unix Administrator, mathematics enthusiast, and amateur philosopher. This is where I rant about that which upsets me, laugh about that which amuses me, and jabber about that which holds my interest most: Unix.

multi-arch kubernetes on amd64 and arm64 with Raspberry Pi 3B+s

Posted 09-22-2019 at 05:24 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

There's a bug in the go runtime that prevents etcd from working properly on armv7l devices. Calico and Helm/Tiller don't run on armv7l. And as I mentioned in my last post, Docker images are *really* limited on arm32v7 platforms. Raspbian sadly has not updated to arm64, so I switched the Raspberry Pis over to Debian Buster from here: https://people.debian.org/~gwolf/ras...PREVIEW.img.xz Since the Raspberry Pi 3B+ is actually a 64 bit machine (but...

dnscrypt-proxy on docker on kubernetes on Raspberry Pis

Posted 08-31-2019 at 04:33 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

I recently constructed a Raspberry Pi cluster for testing a few distributed systems (ceph, primarily, which failed fantastically due to the 1G memory of the Raspberry Pi 3 B+...I managed to get it *running*, but anytime there was a *recovery operation* the cluster slowed to a halt). More recently I put rak8s on the Pis to test out Kubernetes, using the default Docker backend.

Problem is, arm32v7 Docker images are severely limited, especially compared to what is available on amd64....

acme-client fails with "file exists"

Posted 07-27-2019 at 05:47 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
Updated 07-27-2019 at 11:58 PM by rocket357

Running OpenBSD-6.5 on a machine with two internet uplinks (shared on a common local network), I noticed that acme-client would die with "file exists" over and over again.

The problem was in how acme works when using http-01. In this mode, acme-client will reach out to the Lets Encrypt endpoints (v2 at the time of this writing) and ask for a certificate. Since it's using http-01, Lets Encrypt will then reach out to the domain the certificate is for (which needs to be the...

Adventures in OpenBSD softraid

Posted 12-09-2018 at 08:55 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Hosted at one of the small-ish cloud providers I have a small VM that I recently resized. Along with a small bump in RAM (for the same price), I was able to secure a bit more storage space. Win-win, right?

I have an OpenBSD RAID volume on the server. Built within this RAID volume is a softraid crypto virtual disk. I decided to resize this crypto volume, so I've booted the server up with the ramdisk kernel. First, I resized the physical volume's layout, so a quick "fdisk...

"Are we there yet?"

Windows has this nasty habit of spamming a dhcp server with DHCPINFORM messages unless the dhcp server provides a proxy auto-configuration script. As I've not yet found a way to make Windows stop doing this, I've set up the following in my dhcpd.conf:

Code:
option autoproxy-script "http://10.42.0.11/wpad.pac";
The above is for OpenBSD dhcpd. For dnsmasq:

Code:
dhcp-option=252,http://10.42.0.11/wpad.pac
Or for ISC dhcpd:

Code:
option
