Re: [Linux-cluster] Diskless Shared-Root GFS/Cluster



We strongly considered this when implementing our cluster infrastructure, but decided against it when we realized just how devastating *any* problem
with that shared root would be...

I saw a few posts from some working on this. Has anyone gotten this to work properly? My nodes simply do not need their hard drives, it's a waste of power and hardware since I have plenty of central storage. I would like to
remove drives from nodes and boot the cluster diskless.

I've seen the open shared-root project and such but those seem to be about building the entire cluster. Since I have the cluster going, I'm looking
for information on how I can convert my nodes to diskless.

Thanks for any information you can provide.

Mike
There are quite a some people (increasing every day) using open- sharedroot clusters in productive environments with loads of different applications. I
also wrote a MiniHowto and some other docs (have a look at
www.open-sharedroot.org) to give assistance.

As Mike Hagmann already stated it is not a trivial task to build up such a
cluster (as it's not a trivialtask to build up any type of productive
clusters, but isn't that a reason why we are doing all that ;-) ) but the MiniHowto should help you on the one hand and on the other hand you can get more help from open-sharedroot or us at ATIX (www.atix.de). If you like.
Feel free to ask.
Regards and have fun
Marc.
