> Jens, can you check?


I forwarded your mail to the guys who are responsible for the mirrors now. I hope they'll fix it and reply soon. 

Please use in future on issues on the mirrors, I changed the department and have no longer access to the mirrors.

Kind regards

Seems to work fine. 
Jens, could you please create a bugzilla account for that address and subscribe it to the mailing list?

Thanks, i'll leave this bug open so the contact can be changed

The mirror is sync now, there was a stale pid file preventing the sync-script to start :o/

Comment 11 Stephan Schaefer 2008-04-09 13:27:26 UTC

in the future we plan to do our initial sync from the following IP:, can you please allow this ip to sync from rsync:// We will then sync internally to our german nas node.
Comment 12 Stephan Schaefer 2008-04-18 05:14:17 UTC

iam still waiting for a response. Can you please contact me, thank you in advance.

Comment 15 Shyam Mani (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-10 04:09:20 UTC
Right now, I have 3 IPs on the ACL for :

Please let me know which one you plan to sync from and which one should be in DNS.

Comment 16 Stephan Schaefer 2008-06-10 11:53:59 UTC
Hello, should only have one A Record:, also
we need a second nameserver record which should
point to, which is our mirror in st. louis, mo (usa).

We will initiate the sync from (nat ip of our mirror storage backend) and then sync internally
to our german cluster through a private data link, so that's the ip we need access for on

Just to clear up the situation a little bit, I want to explain our setup.
We have two storage clusters for mirroring, one in germany and one in the united states.
Each cluster consist of one NAS Node and two WEB nodes, the WEB nodes
import the filesystem from the NAS node. Therefore the IP of the DNS Record(s) and
the IP we start the sync from are different.

DNS Records:  A  A

Mirror Access: should be accesible from IP:
Comment 17 Shyam Mani (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-11 10:26:21 UTC

Thanks for explaining the setup.

Right now, both and have access to 

One problem on our side was a dual DNS entry for, which was an older IP that wasn't I've taken care of that now.

I'll check ( tomorrow to make sure it's okay. 

Once all this is fine, you can open another bug if you want the US mirror made public and I'll add that in as well. Don't want to mix both.


Comment 18 Shyam Mani (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-07-07 04:21:47 UTC
Looks good. Closing. Please open a new bug if you want a US mirror added as well.
