we have good experience putting clustersuite on BL35p ( the half height blades ) , but GFS is another story. (Might have something to do with MSA1500 we have, Redhat and HP are blaming each other on that issue)
iLO is pretty nice, but I think VMware consoles are easier to use :) Now if i can just figure out how to make GFS work properly in ESX server ....
Blades.bl20p can be had very cheap nowadays, but should be enough for most tasks. Downside: only two internal disks, the rest is via SAN (or iSCSI).I want to add a vote for the proliant bl* series. It uses iLO...not the older Riloe cards, which have been problematic now and then.-J -- Linux-cluster mailing list Linux-cluster redhat com https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/linux-cluster
