after having used Ubuntu for 4 years, I started playing around with Ubuntu for servers, MAAS, that kind of stuff and come to the conclusion that I totally suck at it.
I need help! I have been installing, reinstalling MAAS on an old PC of mine and I get the whole thing so far that I can login to the system on $ http://xx.xx.xx.15/MAAS. However from there it goes wrong...partly I guess because I don know what I´m doing.
It starts with DNS & DHCP management: I have a network in my house with a Cisco router which has the option switched on for DHCP server. Does this mean, I should not interfere with the router? Or shall I switch it off and build my own thing? At the moment, I let MAAS still do the DNS&DHCP managment.
After that: adding nodes in de UI seems easy to do. I can even find and list them in command line. However when, I want to do $ maas maas nodes accept-all, it gives me ´´ and for the rest the node does not perform anything.
The documentation for MAAS (http://maas.ubuntu.com/docs/index.html) was probably meant for smarter people, at least I don´t get what I´m doing wrong. I guess what I am missing is a step-by-step tutorial that explains every single box that I have to fill in. Apparently, I don fill them in correctly.
Would be very thankful for help.
