Use netboot to install Ubuntu

Install the salt minion and accept the keys on the salt master before running the commands below.

echo "role: openafs-server" > /etc/salt/grains && salt-call state.apply

Install OpenAFS Packages

Create /vicep[x] folders

For every partition you want on the server run the below command:

mkdir /vicep[x] # replace [x] with a, b, c, etc.

Then add a line for each partition in /etc/fstab as shown below:

/dev/vd[x] /vicep[y] ext4 defaults 0 2 # replace [x] with disk name and [y] with partition name

Copy Kerberos Keytab from another server

If this is the first installation in the cell, see http://docs.openafs.org/QuickStartUnix/HDRWQ50.html. Otherwise, run the below command:

scp workingserver:/etc/openafs/server/rxkad.keytab /etc/openafs/server/

Remove from /etc/hosts
