Red Hat / Fedora :: Install Cluster On Servers - Validate A Multicast Address Before Using It?
May 19, 2011
I am trying to install a Red Hat cluster on my servers. In order to configure an heart bit between the servers I must give a valid multicast address. I wanted to know if there is a way to validate a multicast address before using it. For example if it is already in use i don't want to use it.
I read a little about it and there is a Perl module called IO::Socket::Multicast: [URL] There is a tool called mcasttrest.pl: [URL] Oracle use it to test multicast. But I am not sure what will do the trick in Red Hat cluster.
I am in verse to test "Multicast Packet filtering".I want to setup Virtual Machines to be servers with bind option set to a multicast group address of 18.104.22.168.Then I want to configure the client VM, connecting to the multicast group address and setting the TTL as needed.
I am trying to build GFS2 cluster with 2 or 3 Fedora 14 nodes, but I've encountered some problems from the start. First luci does not work at all in Fedora 14. There is no luci_admin and even if I manage to start luci service, I get a blank white screen when I try to open it from the browser. I've googled a bit and found that I'd might be able to setup GFS if I manage to build cluster.conf manually and start the cluster suite, but I cannot find documentation on how to create cluster.conf anywhere. If anyone knows how to setup GFS2 without a cluster suite or how to configure cluster.conf.
I'm using at struct sockaddr_in to receive multicast data sent out from another machine. When I print out the source address using inet_ntoa it gives me the source address of the PC that sent the data. This is ok but I would like to know if there is a way of getting the multicast address that the data was 'sent to'. I know I can see the multicast address in tcpdump being directed to my PC but I would like to be able to display the multicast address too? Is this possible or does the sockaddr_in give me the source address of the packet not the multicast address that the packet was sent to?
I am working in a project that needs to set up an Apache Web Cluster. The cluster needs to be High-availability (HA) cluster and Load-balancing cluster. Someone mentioned the use of Red Hat Cluster Suite, but, honestly, I can't figure out how it works, I haven't been able to configure it correctly. The project currently have two nodes, but we need to support at least three nodes in the cluster.
have a doubt about the multicast address.I have read that IP and ethernet multicast address have the same last 23 bits. While an ethernet multicast address always starts with 01:00:5E. Changing the last 23 bits of the IP address into hexadecimal form and "adding" them to the first 24 bits we find the ethernet address but what about the missing bit??? For istance I have: 22.214.171.124 = 11100110.00001011.01101111.00001010 So converting the last 23 bits I have b:6f:a The final ethernet address will be 01:00:5E:b:6f:a . And what about the missing bit?
I'm trying to build a Fedora 12 cluster to run DHCP on top of two servers using pacemaker and drbd. The pacemaker runs great but i'm having the hardest time getting DRBD installed.
My kernel version is 126.96.36.199-99.fc12.i686.PAE First i tried to [root@dhcp-primary drbd]#yum install drbd this doesn't give me everything because apparently the kernel module for DRBD must be built from source. so i unpacked drbd-8.3.6.tar.gz and tried :
I'm not very experienced in compiling from source i'd love to make an rpm for this but after scouring the web and trying different install methods, I am still at a loss.
I'm having a very strange problem with red hat cluster. After testing it in the lab, I tried to install a new cluster and received the following error: cman not started: Cannot start, cluster name is too long or other CCS error /usr/sbin/cman_tool: aisexec daemon didn't start I've checked the internet for that error, but nothing. I decided to to take the example from cluster.conf man, which looks like that :
And still I get the same error. I can find my servers both from DNS (FQDN and short name) and they also appear in /etc/hosts.
We're trying to validate LDAP authentication from Linux against our AD global catalog servers. I'm seeing lots of LDAP query tools, but what I need is a free/open source application that can use LDAP to query AD to authenticate... something as simple as entering the hostname/IP of our AD/global catalog server and the port, then passing an AD username/password to it to validate logon capability. Anyone know of any software/apps that can do this? I don't want to get into configuring Samba for LDAP or trying to authenticate my actual Linux server again AD... I just want an application that uses LDAP for authentication.
I want to set up a cluster for scientific computing (mainly statistical stuff with R). I have a few conceptual questions. First, is there a difference between a Beowulf cluster and a cluster that has single-system image ("SSI," e.g. using openSSI or LinuxPMI)? If so, what's the difference? Second, if there is a difference between Beowulf and SSI, which one is better for scientific computing? Third, does using Eucalyptus make sense for scientific computing or is this more suitable for IO-oriented operations such as web service or databases
Can ANYONE point me in the right direction on how to use storage on multiple servers as a single cluster?I thought storage cluster was for that but, after much googling, and even more help from here, I don't think that achieves my goal. My goal is to have multiple servers share a file system, to act as somewhat of a network raid, so if node-A goes down the files are available on other nodes, and hopefully so when the capacity of the nodes are reached I can add nodes to expand the "cluster".
I need to build a 3 node web server cluster to run a php application. Since the app requires users to login (which means a session state is to be maintained), I will be sharing sessions save path, I also need to share the application directory across 3 nodes. I having trouble deciding which cluster file system to select.
I make an application on GNU/Linux which listening on a MULTICAST stream, so I open my unconnected socket, bind it on a MULTICAST address and a port, join the multicast group with the "setsockopt (IP_ADD_MEMBERSHIP)", then I receive datagram on my socket.
Now I've two different instances of the same application that run with their own MULTICAST address and port. And what I found strange is that, after a misconfiguration, I switch the ports, for example:
Emitting on 188.8.131.52/23451 and 184.108.40.206/23452 Receiving on 220.127.116.11/23452 and 18.104.22.168/23451
And my receiving part doesn't care about the MULTICAST address, it looks like the socket is listening on the port number only! I mean that the receiver [22.214.171.124/23452] take its datagrams from emitter [126.96.36.199/23452] and vice-versa!
I am working on the beginning of implementing a two-node cluster with shared storage (GFS) and IP address. Both machines are virtual on VMware ESX 3.5, that should not make a difference, but that is the background.current status is that I have a single node cluster built with only the IP address configured within the cluster. The issue that I am having is that I have configured a service to contain only the IP address resource, however, when I go into cluster management that "service" does not register. As such, I cannot bring it online, ping it, etc. below is my cluster.conf configuration:
I was wondering if and how it would be possible to put together a sort of Home "cluster" system. pecifically, I wanted to make it so I would have a central server and a few computers, where the central server holds the home folders and settings of each user, and each user can log in to any of the computers using a standardized login (into the server), where anyone could log in with their account on any of the few computers - and their home folder (Desktop, Documents, Music, etc) would automatically be there.
Also if possible, would there be some way to centralize the applications that show up on each "client"?
Just Installed Fedora 10 on Dell PowerEdge 2950. Installation went fine. Problem is I cannot Assign a Ip address to eth0. Service "NetworkManager " dies on its own "ifconfig eth0 192168.0.8/24" works though.
I just setup an application (phpcollab) on a linux machine, I was able to browse the app using localhost, but each time i try browsing it using the ip address, a blank page loads with a message saying "No input specified".
Whenever I try browsing the app from other systems on the network, I get a page cannot be found error message even though the other machines are successfully pinging the linux machine's ip address.
I need to browse it with the ip address because the app is to be accessed from other machines on the network.
I have installed Fedora 11 and I have set it up as a web server with Apache. I have a domain name from GoDaddy that I own and I have set it to my web server. I am able to type the address into a browser on a computer outside of my network and it will pull up the web pages on the server. the problem that I am having is that after I type the URL, it gets replaced with the IP address. [URL] I know that I need a nameserver to resolve the IP address but I can not figure out how to do it. I have tried to use Bind but I can never seem to get it to work.
I have a server that sits between two LANs, and I wish to enable multicast routing from one LAN to the other. I have multicast routing enabled in the kernel but didn't know how to enable it. Tried to add mc_forwarding in /etc/sysctrl but doesn't work.
i want to install oscar cluster on my ubuntu 8.04 , so i added its repository from http://svn.oscar.openclustergroup.or...ki/repoTesting .i added repo from Testing the development version section.when i use oscar-config --bootstrap i receive this error :
Initializing ODA: mysql ERROR: Unknown ODA type () at /usr/bin/oda line 886[code]....
I am currently trying to setup a cluster using heartbeat. Unfortunatly it does not do what I want to do. I am using heartbeat 2.1.4-11 on a readhat system. I am using the the cib for configuration. What I want to do is the following: I have two Nodes. I want to run a clone resource on both nodes. It's named I want to run as a clone. This works fine.Additionally I want to have two virtual IP adresses. One should be set on Node 1 the other on Node 2. This works fine as well. I want to set dependencies between the resources. And this is where I have problems. What I want to achive: In case named is not able to run on a node, the vIP should switch to the other node (which then will have both vIPs). In case both nodes are able to run named, there should be one vIP on each node. Sounds simple, but does not work.Accourding to the heartbeat docu this an be achieved by using
