It is recommended that you burn and boot from any ISO images PRIOR to uploading them to SourceForge. If you've followed all of the steps in the release guide, they should work flawlessly.

Full NST Live Distribution

  • Verify that the NST Live distribution boots cleanly.
  • Verify that you can log in.
  • Verify that you can access the system using ssh and https after running the nstpasswd command to set the system passwords.
  • Verify that you can install the distribution to hard disk.
  • Verify that you can boot off the hard disk installation.
  • Reboot the hard disk system.
  • Verify that you can access the system using ssh and https after running the nstpasswd command to set the system passwords.


RPM Verify

After booting, run the following command to review verification issues in RPM packages:

[root@nst30-repo repo30]# make HOST=192.168.0.9 rpm-verify

... Review results of the rpm-verify output ...

[root@nst30-repo repo30]#

Then for a live check, run:

[root@nst30-repo repo30]# make rpm-verify-diff-live

... NOTE: The include/make/rpm-verify.expect.live.txt file is likely out of data
    don't panic if there are any issues flagged ...

[root@nst30-repo repo30]#

Then for a hard disk install, run:

[root@nst30-repo repo30]# make rpm-verify-diff-hd

... NOTE: The include/make/rpm-verify.expect.hd.txt file is likely out of data
    don't panic if there are any issues flagged ...

[root@nst30-repo repo30]#

Probe Check

After booting the full NST Live distribution, do to your development machine and run: make probe-check HOST=IP against the newly booted NST probe. Review the resulting log file to verify that the test results look reasonable.

NOTE: Make sure you install your ssh keys (run ssh-auth-keys --hosts IP --users root) before running the make command.

[root@nst30-repo repo30]# make probe-check HOST=192.168.0.9

... Lot's of output as various checks and tests are made ..


[root@nst30-repo repo30]# less -R probe-check.log

... Review results of the probe-check output ...

[root@nst30-repo repo30]#
