Infrastructure of OSGeo System Administration Committee (SAC)


Open Source Labs - 2 physical machines containing x virtual machines.

All SAC administrators have LDAP auth to the OSL Virtual Machines. Primary Admins 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.osuosl.org.

Also, community.osgeo.org is a test Drupal instance they hosted for us while evaluating OSL services earlier on. (See Tyler)




  • Migration of LDAP to this virtual machine planned.

See Infrastructure Transition Plan 2010#Final_Plan for full details.



  • Transition in Progress

See Infrastructure Transition Plan 2010#Final_Plan for full details.


  • Template VM used when creating new VMs.
  • Not normally running - make a special request to OSL to start it up.



  • Provides rsync backups of download.osgeo.org
  • Will provide backula backups of various VMs.
  • VM alias is Backup
  • See SAC:Backups for details.


  • General purpose home for OSGeo projects which do not garner heavy enough a load to require their own VM.
  • See Infrastructure_Transition_Plan_2010#Final_Plan for full details.
  • www.remotesensing.org - /osgeo/remotesensing.org - admined by FrankW.
  • www.gdal.org - /osgeo/gdal - admined by FrankW
  • 2010.foss4g.org - /osgeo/foss4g/2010 - admined by frank/lorenzo?
  • mapserver.org - /osgeo/mapserver.org - admined by hobu


  • VM used by the QGIS project.
  • Shell access only for the QGIS shell access group.
  • Details on configuration to follow...
  • Running joomla 1.5.18 and mediawiki


  • Migration of Planet and small helper applications to this virtual machine in progress.

See Infrastructure Transition Plan 2010#Final_Plan for full details.
