This page contains information on installing and setting up: DHCP, diskless, ...

It is assumed that the servers are running a minimal installation as described in the previous section IRIDIA cluster installing an OS on the servers.

Diskless

Install the package called diskless. This package contains tools and binaries for creating a Debian image for the diskless clients.

Create a new image:

diskless newimage

For more information on creating see http://wiki.debian.net/index.cgi?DiskLess


DCHP

A DHCP daemon should be installed on majorana so that IPs are given to the cluster nodes depending on their MAC address. When installing DCHP notice that the package dhcp3 could give some trouble with the /dev/rtc (real-time clock). However, the package named just dhcp seems to work.
