Re: [Linux-cluster] RHEL Cluster rpm fresh installation on rhel5 32bit

Thanks Cheriff.  I saved few hours by not downloading the DVD. I made a good progress now. I copied all the 5 discs to a local folder, created a repo and installed all the rpm's now as group-install.

referred the links like http://portal2portal.blogspot.in/2012/06/adding-local-yum-repository-to-red-hat.html and http://www.riccardoriva.com/blog/?p=255

However i don't find ccsd, magma,dlm rpm's in the discs (this link http://www.centos.org/docs/4/html/rh-cs-en-4/ap-rhcs-sw-inst-cust.html recommends i must have these two as well ) ; I am not sure why these are missing in the discs/repo. I will have to look for them separately, install then i will clone the vm to create my second node to be part of the cluster.

For now, I am good. But if you know the details of these rpm's , let me know. thanks.

Unfortunately I have 5 disc's that are part of installation. Do i need to create DVD's out of it for this purpose or download the DVD iso (3GB) again to make this work ? 

Yeah, i still believe all these rpm's , lib's must be in the CD's somewhere but i have to mount then one by one to search and install and it might say somebody is missing still ? 

I would be using these methods to setup a similar one in Production very soon hence i have to figure out the best methods now to install all these required packages so that i document them to pass on to a different team who do this in Production remotely. 

Easier way to install all Clustering stuff as just one bunch is still something that i really look for.

Mostly in redhat the dependencies for each package are included in the redhat dvd or cds. I think you try to specify your dvd or cds are repositories on the system and then try to install the cluster packages again using the yum command.

I've not used RHEL 5 in some time. Is it possible that you use RHEL 6?
Also, if at all possible, 64-bit version. For a test cluster, you can
create a minimal install on 1GB of RAM, so if you have at least 4GB or
RAM on your laptop, you should be fine.

Under RHEL6, you need to enable the High-Availability Add-on groups in
RHN. Not sure if they are called the same on RHEL 5, it's been too long
since I last used it to remember.
