Getting Started:

What's NOT available ?

  • The is not "scheduler" roll. It's on the todo list.
  • restore rolls are completely untested (and probably don't work, so don't try). Ethernet device names are completely different.
  • rocks-console when installing subordinate nodes. You can ssh to the node during installation for text-based access
    • You can also set install headless and then use SSH to tunnel the nodes xVNC connection (ssh <node> -L 5901:localhost:5901
  • CD/DVD-based rolls. All rolls must come from a network server (beta7.rocksclusters.org for this)
