Using the SysMan Tools to Manage TruClusters V5.0
Topic Area:
Track: UNIX
Topic: Clusters
Type:  Breakout Session

Schedule:
11/11/99   11:30 AM     Duration: 60 Min.     Room: 15B

Presenter:
Peter Wolfe
Principal Software Engineer, Compaq Computer Corporation  

Abstract:
This session presents a detailed discussion of TruCluster Server V5.0 systems management. TruCluster Server V5.0 offers a “single system image” (SSI) clustering model for Tru64 UNIX. Members of the cluster share resources, data storage and clusterwide filesystems under a single security and management domain. If you know how to manage a Tru64 UNIX system, you already know how to manage a TruCluster Server cluster because TruCluster Server extends single-system management capabilities to clusters. It provides a clusterwide namespace for files and directories, including a single root (/) file system that all cluster members share. In like manner, it provides a clusterwide namespace for storage devices; each storage device has the same unique device name throughout the cluster. The SysMan suite of graphical management utilities provides an integrated view of the cluster environment, letting you manage a single member or the entire cluster. Topics discussed include: - Creating a cluster, adding members to a cluster, deleting members of a cluster - The Cluster alias subsystem - Features of the SysMan Station, a high fidelity client/server application used for managing single systems and TruCluster systems. - The “focus model” for performing member-specific changes - Description of the behavior of common services in a TruCluster environment (DNS, NTP, NFS, etc).

Objectives:
Understand the management paradigms of a V5.0 TruCluster.
 
Understand the usage of the cluster-specific management tools.
 
Understand the configuration of common services in a cluster environment (DNS, NTP, NFS, etc.).
