# NB!
#
# There are a lot of site specific information that you have to put in
# yourself (ip address, netmask, hostname, gateway, dns-servers,
# ntp provider, smtp server, linux-logs email-address, snmp community,
# ip-addresses to be allowed past firewall and so on). Make sure you have
# put in all the correct information. I have added information about
# this site specific information in each section header that will need it.


###
### Installation of RHEL4 or CentOS 4
###
# I have included a very basic installation of RHEL4 and CentOS 4 here.
# I have selected to do a "minimal" install and rather do an up2date or yum
# for the extra packages NAV needs in addition to that. That way I don't get
# a lot of services running on the machine that I don't need. I use static
# network configuration so the NAV3 server don't need to rely on a DHCP
# server functioning. I disable SELinux.
#
# WARNING! If you choose to use SELinux here you MUST do some configuration
# to get NAV to work.
#
# Site-specific:
#   ip-address and netmask
#   hostname.yourdomain.tld
#   gateway ip-address
#   dns server ip-addresses

##
## Stop some unneeded services
##
chkconfig autofs off        # Don't need automounting filesystems in this setup
chkconfig cups off          # Don't need printing directly on the NAV server
chkconfig gpm off           # Don't need a console mouse
chkconfig mdmonitor off     # No software RAID in this setup
chkconfig netfs off         # I will not use any Network FS in this setup
chkconfig nfslock off       # Same
chkconfig portmap off       # No RPC programs in this setup

chkconfig rpcidmapd off     # Same
chkconfig xinetd off        # Will not use any services under xinet in this setup


##
## Other services that depends on the machine you use for NAV
##
## Check the syslog and other log files to see if they are needed f.ex.:
##   grep apm /var/log/messages
##   grep microcode /var/log/messages
##   grep smart /var/log/messages
##
chkconfig apmd off          # Run this if your machine is not using APM (mostly laptops/or using ACPI)
chkconfig cpuspeed off      # Run this if the processor is not a speedstep processor (mostly laptops)
chkconfig irqbalance off    # Run this if you have one processor with a single core
chkconfig isdn off          # Run this if your machine don't have an isdn connection
chkconfig microcode_ctl off # Run this if microcode is older than your BIOS/Processor microcode
chkconfig openibd off       # Run this if your machine don't use InfiniBand
chkconfig pcmcia off        # Run this if your machine don't have any PCMCIA ports
chkconfig smartd off        # Run this if your HD is not SMART capable


##
## RHEL4/CentOS4 should use only IPV4 by default (/etc/sysconfig/network
## have a setting called NETWORKING_IPV6 that is "no" by default). But
## still some applications connect to IPV6 addresses and the IPV6 kernel
## module is autoloaded. We are still not using IPV6 in the college and
## I am not ready to look into setting this up in a functioning way so
## instead I disable IPV6 in this way:
##
# Remove IPV6 from RHEL4/CentOS4

##
## Start CentOS4 only - yum:
##
# Newer versions of CentOS finds the nearest mirror. No need
# to set up local mirrors yourself.
# Check available updates
yum check-update
# Install updates
yum -y update
# If you want you can make CentOS update itself nightly
chkconfig yum on
##
## End CentOS4 only

##
## Configure the firewall
##
## Here I have added a sample firewall setup
##
## Site-specific:
##
## To use this you will have to enter the hosts that you want to have
## access to the web-server and the hosts that needs ssh access to NAV.
## In addition you can give access to NMS servers that need snmp-access
## and servers that need syslog access. You can define this with either
## a single host (158.37.22.2) or a subnet (158.37.22.0/24) or have
## several lines - both single hosts and subnets. If you need help in
## setting this up for your situation send me an email.
## Beware: Setting it up this way means you can not use the program
## system-config-network to set up the firewall. It will overwrite this
## file.

###
### Nav configuration
###

##
## NAV setup
##
# I want to have the alert emails to give the correct servername in the "From:" header.
# I do this by changing line 22 of /usr/local/nav/etc/alertengine.cfg
# from "alertengine\@nav" to "alertengine"
#
# You may want to edit some or all of the files in the directory
# /usr/local/nav/etc/webfront now. This is to personalise your
# NAV installation.
#
# Edit NAV configuration file
#
# Site-specific:
#   ADMIN_MAIL (yournavemail@yourdomain.tld)
#   DOMAIN_SUFFIX (yourdomain.tld)
#
sed \
 -e '/ADMIN_MAIL/s/root@localhost/yournavemail@yourdomain.tld/' \
 -e '/DOMAIN_SUFFIX/s/ntnu.no/yourdomain.tld/' \
 -i /usr/local/nav/etc/nav.conf
#
# Arnold needs its log file existing
touch /usr/local/nav/var/log/arnold/arnold.log


##
## Profile setup
##
cat << EOF > /etc/profile.d/nav_environ.sh
JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.5.0_12
PATH=\$PATH:\$JAVA_HOME/jre/bin
export JAVA_HOME
CATALINA_OPTS="-Djava.awt.headless=true -Xmx128M -server -Djava.ext.dirs=/usr/local/nav/lib/java"
export CATALINA_OPTS
EOF

chmod 755 /etc/profile.d/nav_environ.sh


##
## Link in the JDBC driver
##
ln -s /usr/share/java/pg74.215.jdbc3.jar /usr/local/nav/lib/java


##
## Link in some NAV Perl scripts into the Perl library
##
ln -s /usr/local/nav/lib/perl/NAV.pm /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5
ln -s /usr/local/nav/lib/perl/NAV /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5
ln -s /usr/local/nav/lib/perl/NetAddr /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5


##
## Append to Python the path to NAV python scripts
##
cat << EOF > /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/sitecustomize.py
import sys
sys.path.append('/usr/local/nav/lib/python')
EOF


##
## Configure gammu
##
#
# Site-specific:
#   /etc/gammurc config
#   YourMobileNumber
#
# First you have to edit the /etc/gammurc file to support your mobile phone
# I use a Nokia 6310i with a DLR3 cable connected to the serial port on the
# computer so I make this /etc/gammurc file:
#
cat << EOF > /etc/gammurc
[gammu]
port = /dev/ttyS0
connection = dlr3
EOF

#
# Check out the original /etc/gammurc file for hints on different setups
#
# You can test that the gammu program works by doing this test as root:
#
gammu nothing --identify
#
# and when that test gives correct data send yourself a test SMS like this:
#
echo Test | gammu nothing --sendsms TEXT YourMobileNumber
#
# and of course change "YourMobileNumber" with the phone number of your mobile :-)
# 
# Since the NAV program runs as the navcron user (that was created when installing
# the nav rpm) it needs permissions to use the /dev/ttyS0 device file. Use this
# command to give the navcron user the needed permission:
#
usermod -G uucp navcron
#
# Now you can test the smsd.py module to see that it will send SMS'es:
#
/usr/local/nav/bin/smsd.py -t YourMobileNumber
#
# Again change "YourMobileNumber" with the phone number of your mobile


##
## Configure Tomcat
##
# Let Tomcat only listen to the localhost address
sed -e 's/port="8080"/port="8080" address="127.0.0.1"/' -i /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.23/conf/server.xml

##

###
### Installation and configuration is done. Lets start the program.
###

##
## Reboot machine. This is necessary, the environment needs new settings
## before starting NAV and the web-server needs to be started.
##
shutdown -r 0


##
## Log in and become root
##
su -


##
## Start Tomcat
##
/usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.23/bin/startup.sh


##
## Start NAV
##
/usr/local/nav/bin/nav start

# Check the startup by using this command:
/usr/local/nav/bin/nav status

# I sometimes have problems starting servicemon and/or pping. I then use this command:
/usr/local/nav/bin/nav start servicemon pping
# Maybe even two times to get it going
# or I stop NAV and start it again this way:
/usr/local/nav/bin/nav stop
/usr/local/nav/bin/nav start


## Now NAV is up and running and it is time to log in and seed the database.
## Go to the webpage and log in as admin (remember to change the password)
## and go to Toolbox, Edit database


## Here is a very simple startup that I put on my server. This will
## start Tomcat and NAV, but not stop them on shutdown of the server.
## Use it if you want or make a better one and share it.

cat << EOF >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local

# Start NAV
. /etc/profile.d/nav_environ.sh
/usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.23/bin/startup.sh
/usr/local/nav/bin/nav start
EOF


##
## As you can see I have put the packages on a local webserver to make it
## easier to reinstall (don't have to rely on the remote servers being up and
## having the same versions available), and you are welcome to download from
## that server. But if you want to get the files yourself here are the links:
