Smile Linux RH 6.0 Cluster on VmWare workstation 7.1


Hello all. I am trying for learning purpose (I need to make a quick demo on how a cluster works) to put up a RH cluster on a vmware machine. Has anyone done this?

I Have problems (really, I do not know how to do that) in defininf the quorum disk and a shared disk.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Flavio

you want to VM a hardware cluster of what 4/8/16 machines

use 4/8/16 computers and build a cluster

you will have a rather hard time doing this on ONE computer running 4/8/16 vm's

also " Linux RH 6.0 " is ANCIENT
RH6.0 came out in April of 1999
over 14 years ago

if you are going to even try to use that
use hardware that has Windows98 or win95 on it
As in 14 to 16 year old computers

rh6 also went "End Of Life" back in 2006
there has been no support for it for 7 years

scene then there has been
RH7
RH8
RH9
RHEL2
RHEL3
RHEL4
EHEL5
and RHEL6
with RHEL 6.4 the current OS
redhat is only supporting
RHEL4.9 , RHEL5.X and RHEL6.X

see the redhat life cycle
https://access.redhat.com/support/po...ta/?cid=378164
( none of the ancient RH's are listed )

rh6 predates almost everyone here , except for a few "old timers"
it also uses the very old "Linux 2.2.5" kernel
the 2.2 kernel is not supported any longer .


now for the current RHEL6.4
( a support contract IS a requirement ! )
for a cluster install on servers
https://www.redhat.com/wapps/store/catalog.html
contact RedHat sales
and read the install guide
-- for cluster administration
https://access.redhat.com/site/docum...ion/index.html
but this is for the CURRENT os
and NOT for the 14 year old RH6
