Hi friends, Sean Moores here. I was wondering if anyone has tried this and could offer any advice: I have 6 various spare motherboards/chip/ram combos I want to run seti on. My main machine is on redhat 7 and seti client. I want to setup all the spares as seti processing mahines without video or harddrives or anything. Is there a way to use the 'wake on lan' and a small linux download to run seti on these machines, and have them upload thru the network ?
Yes, this is a total newbie question, but hey, im willing to learn!!!
well if you're willing to learn the hard way, why not make a linux cluster (see http://tldp.org ) and then everything you do on those machines will be spread across them all... there's no WOL support or such like AFAIK
Can you run a cluster with 1 main server, and the rest have no video/kbd/mouse?
I have been looking at beowolf and the other clusters, but I didnt know if thats how they were operated.
