|NPACI Rocks Cluster Distribution: Users Guide:|
|Prev||Chapter 5. Customizing your Rocks Installation||Next|
You've modified the base Rocks cluster distribution and now you want to create a media set (CDs or DVD).
First, login to your frontend and obtain the entire Rocks cluster distribution:
# cd /home/install # rocks-dist mirror
This puts the entire Rocks distribution under the directory /home/install/ftp.rocksclusters.org/...
Now, recompile the distribution in pristine form (without Rolls).
# cd /home/install # rm -rf rocks-dist # rocks-dist --pristine dist
This binds all the packages from ftp.rocksclusters.org, all the packages under /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/... and all the packages under /home/install/contrib/... into a new Red Hat compliant distribution under /home/install/rocks-dist
After rebuilding a package, before you try to make a media set, you must re-execute:
Now build the media set (in this case, build the CD set):
# cd /home/install # rm -rf cdrom # rocks-dist --dist=cdrom cdrom
This puts the CD set under /home/install/cdrom/....
The first ISO is named /home/install/cdrom/enterprise/3/en/os/rocks-disk1.iso, the second is /home/install/cdrom/enterprise/3/en/os/rocks-disk2.iso, the third is /home/install/cdrom/enterprise/3/en/os/rocks-disk3.iso, etc.
You're done -- you now have a customized cluster distribution ready to burn onto blank CD media.
To build a DVD set, execute:
# cd /home/install # rm -rf dvd # rocks-dist --dist=dvd dvd
This puts the DVD set under /home/install/dvd/.... The first ISO is named /home/install/dvd/enterprise/3/en/os/rocks-disk1.iso.
