Sorry to write directly to you instead of the listserv, but everytime
I post something to the listserv (Beowulf.org) it never gets sent out.
And I have a one question for you(scyle), and the rest of the Beowulf
community. I have other questions, as well, but getting the cluster running
is my priority for now.
Let me give you ( and if you forward this to beowulf.org ) a run down of
the cluster. I am keeping it small, just to prove that it works. Then
I can build a much larger ( +30 node ) one.
HomeNode: Dell OptiPlex PII-400
Node0: Dell PowerEdge2400 Twin 866 Xeon, lots of ram and
I have two other nodes, but I want to get this one up first!
Installation Question, I have followed the slave node setup proceedure,
and the machine will not go to the "up" state automatically. Here is the
proceedure I used to setup the Node
1. With a blank Harddrive, boot w/ a boot floppy, move from
unknown to configured node, and click apply.
2. From /usr/lib/beoboot/bin:
/usr/sbin/beoboot-install 0 /dev/sda
bpctl -S all -s reboot
Have I missed anything? When the machine reboots, it is
stuck in the "unavailable" state.
