Full Cluster Setup

This document will go through the setup and management of the BHAM grid cluster from scratch.

Setting up the Master Node

A single service node is used to run DHCP, PXE boot, Puppet Master and local logging. This is used to control all other nodes (through puppet) and so should be kept running at all times. To set this up from scratch, follow these instructions:

1) Install the latest version of SL on a bare metal machine however you want.

2) Install EPEL Repo (additional packages for SL) by doing the following (change for appropriate version of SL):

rpm -Uvh

3) Now install xinetd (for tftp), tftp itself and puppet:

yum install puppet-server
yum install puppet
yum install xinetd
yum install tftp

3) Update everything:

yum update

and reboot just to be sure smile
