Installation Documentation

Installation documentation can be found here.

If you plan on building virtual clusters, then start here.

There is only one significant change: when the Kernel/Boot CD boots, at the “boot:” prompt, you need to type “build” (not “frontend” as in the past releases).

Notes on One of the New Features

  • Virtual Clusters Support
  • If you include the Xen roll, you will now be able to configure virtual clusters using Rocks.

    Preliminary documentation on how to configure and install virtual clusters can be found here.
