Verify Service Node InstallationΒΆ

  • ssh to the service nodes. You should not be prompted for a password.
  • Check to see that the xcat daemon xcatd is running.
  • Run some database command on the service node, e.g tabdump site, or nodels, and see that the database can be accessed from the service node.
  • Check that /install and /tftpboot are mounted on the service node from the Management Node, if appropriate.
  • Make sure that the Service Node has name resolution for all nodes it will service.
  • Run updatenode <compute node> -V -s on management node and verify output contains Running command on <service node> that indicates the command from management node is sent to service node to run against compute node target.
