Infrastructure of OSGeo System Administration Committee (SAC)

For emergency plans see: SAC:Admin and Troubleshooting

Servers at OSL

Open Source Labs - 4 physical machines containing x virtual machines.

If VM hanging, see OSL for how to open a ticket with OSUOSL's support.

All SAC administrators have LDAP auth to the OSL Virtual Machines.

To ssh into a server using your LDAP account, you can do the following replacing your_osgeo_login with your OSGeo login and vmname with the vm name of the server at OSL.


When prompted for password, use your OSGeo Login password.

SAC:Primary Administrators also have ssh key access in case LDAP is down and that will also apply to the physical machines. Worst case scenario use the information on Open Source Labs to file a ticket (SAC members only). Direct connection to virtual machines is by appending it's vm alias to

osgeo 7

New server just came in as of June 2018. Intended to replace osgeo3. Configuration Details

Backup (osgeo5)

  • Backup now runs on dedicated hardware
  • Provides Rsync backups of
  • Provides Bacula backups of various VMs.
  • See SAC:Backups for details.


osgeo4 is a real server managed by OSUOSL and running a virtualization solution (ganeti+kvm) to provide Virtual Machines which are the ones SAC can access and manage. SAC can _not_ access osgeo4 directly, but has to contact OSUOSL for that.

As of February 2018 the osgeo4 machine should be dismissed, moving hosted services somewhere else (most likely osgeo6 or osgeo7 machine).

  • Most projects have been moved to osgeo6, a list of what remains needs to be made so they can be moved.


osgeo3 is a real server managed by OSUOSL and running a virtualization solution (ganeti+kvm) to provide Virtual Machines which are the ones SAC can access and manage. SAC can _not_ access osgeo3 directly, but has to contact OSUOSL for that.

Each of the sections below represent a Virtual Machine and describes which services are running on it, and by which name they are reachable.
