Question simple linux clustering. can it be done on with vmware


i want to practice simple linux clustering on rhel5.

i dont have the requisite h/w for the same. i have installed vmware on my windows box which has a 3GB RAM.

is it possible on my system in the current scenario.
secondly is GFS a prerequisite for clustering? if i need GFS on my RHEL5 do i need to pay for the same?
any linux distro which givs such RPMs for free?

Yes, it is possible to setup clustering on VMWare machine. You can setup 3-4 virtual machines with 256Mb RAM.

Regarding GFS, please check on redhat site for the packages.
Please check CentOS for the similar packages for clustering, it is the closest distro to RHEL.

Question

thanks for your reply. sry for the delay in getting back
could you also let me know if IPMI port is essential for implementing fencing?
on real servers can it also be done with two NIC cards in each cluster node?

added:real servers i meant Intel Xenon server

additionally is it possible to implement fencing in VMware using 2 NIC cards for each node?

thanks!
