    To be frank I am a cluster newbie, I have just built my own cluster to learn the technology, and after lot of reading and digging I have started to use Perceus, more precisely Caoslinux, for the same reason you started this wiki, as it makes cluster management easy, and it realy does the job. On the other hand, I am an Ubuntu fun, I am familiar with it, so I would love to do the same with Ubuntu. Unfortunately I am not a linux/ubuntu admin guru, otherwise I would have started the porting already.

    Probably you do not know, that Perceus is the provisioning part of Warewulf, Caoslinux is the distribution to manage them, and the whole lot is maintained by Infiscale.

    We have already "ported" perceus (and warewulf) to debian.. It needs
    a lot of polishing but it works for i386 and amd64 on our cluster
    of ~80 machines.


    deb http://biodev.ece.ucsb.edu/debian/ main contrib

    On you server:
    aptitude install perceus-server

    There are scripts for creating debian VNFS there.

    Hi kgkv,

    This looks really good. I will have a look.

    It sounds interesting:

    Anyway, what is that?

    Hi Masulli, are you or anyone else still looking for a guide to do this? I've recently managed to get a small Kerrighed 2.3.0 cluster up and running under Ubuntu 8.04 with the 2.6 kernel. I'm currently in the process of writing a guide covering the setup process so other people at work know how to maintain it. If anyone is interested I can post a link on here.

    Seeing as there is a demand for it, I'll get it finished quickly and post it here.

    For two PC's all that is required is a cross-over LAN cable & a configured hosts file. Multiple PCs will require a LAN Switch. A router is not required.

    bigjimjams,

    I am another person who would love to see a tutorial for this. I have been following tutorial at http://trac.nchc.org.tw/grid/wiki/krg_DRBL. But since I am using a more recent version of Kerrighed, it seems there are some problems towards the end with actually starting the cluster. I am also very frustrated that this and other tutorials (e.g. http://www.in2dwok.com/indawok/?page_id=16) don't *explain* what is being done but just tell you to do it.

    If you can at least get a draft of your tutorial, I would offer to help extend it based on my experiences. I think the owner of this thread started a page for EasyUbuntuClustering on the wiki. We should do the same (either add to that page or start a dedicated one). In my view, before anyone can help make clustering "easy", we need to have more people actually able to start a cluster. :}

    Hi Xingmu, sounds like a good plan, as I'd be interested in other peoples opinions on what I did. If you are using kerrighed 2.3.0, there is a known issue with the krgadm tool, which always states that the cluster is not running even when it is! I'll put a draft of the guide up on the "Easy" Clustering Wiki in the next day or so, as I'm currently swamped with a couple of tasks.

    Hi Xingmu and anybody else interested, as promised in my earlier post I've added a draft guide for setting up a kerrighed 2.3.0 cluster in Ubuntu 8.04 on the Easy Ubuntu Clustering Wiki. Here is the link:

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/EasyUbuntuCl...edClusterGuide

    If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or improvements let me know.
