  4. Looking for an installation manual for setting up and configuring the cluster suite. Have 16 node (1 master 15 compute) hardware set up. looking for HOW-TO installation of compute nodes. Using Scientific Linux cluster suite which is same as CentOS version. Thank you

  5. @Nishantha: Yes nishantha. But,

    for RHEL you have to get the subscription to see it ‘clustering’ groupinstallation.

    packages comes with the RHEL dvd or downloaded dvd. you can find all the rpms from thr. if you want to use yum to do a groupinstallation without having d subscription details then u have to create a repo with groupinstallation.

  6. Cannot find Clustering on Centos 6

    $ yum groupinfo “Clustering”
    Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, presto
    Setting up Group Process
    Warning: Group Clustering does not exist.

  7. @ejant

    yum groupinstall “High Availability” “High Availability Management” -y

  8. I want to install RHCS on RHEL but haven’t any subscrption, is it a way to do install that without any problem or the subcription is mandatory?

  9. But when i write # yum grouplist
    i cant see the Clustering in there, neither in installed or Available Groups
    Can someone please help me
