Checklist: Deploying a Compute Cluster

Postby guest » Wed Dec 10, 2008 12:11 am

Review concepts for Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003, including system hardware and software requirements.
Compute Cluster System Requirements (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=64196)

Verify topology for your compute cluster.
Compute Cluster Network Requirements (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=64197)

Verify that a supported operating system is installed.
Installing Compute Cluster Edition (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=64198)

Create a second disk volume (D:\) to store installation images if you plan to use the Automated Addition method to add nodes to the cluster.
Installing Compute Cluster Edition (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=64198)

Create and configure your head node.
Creating a Head Node (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=64199)

Join head node to an Active Directory domain (existing) or create a new domain.
Active Directory Installation Wizard Technical Reference (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=52290)

Install Microsoft Management Console (MMC) 3.0
MMC 3.0 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=62400)

Install RIS hotfix
RIS Hotfix (KB907639) (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=55167)

Install ICS hotfix
ICS Hotfix (KB897616) (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=55166)

Reboot your system.

Install Compute Cluster Pack on the head node.
Installing Compute Cluster Pack On a Head Node (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=64200)

Configure network interfaces on the head node.
Configuring Network Adapters on the Head Node (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=64201)

Enable RIS (optional) from the Compute Cluster Pack if you intend to use the Automated method to add compute nodes to your cluster. Then add one or more installation images and configure the images with valid product keys and identifying descriptions.

Any non-Microsoft drivers required may be added my modifying the RIS image once it is created.
Installing Remote Installation Services (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=64202)

Adding a RIS Image (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=64203)

Modifying a RIS Image (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=65538)

License Management (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=64204)

Add compute nodes to your cluster using either the Automated Addition or Manual Addition method.

To do this, use the Add Nodes Wizard from the Node Management tile in the Compute Cluster Administrator MMC snap-in.

The Automated Addition method uses the RIS images you have created.

The Manual Addition method requires that the supported operating system be installed on the compute nodes. It also requires that you first install Compute Cluster Pack on the compute nodes using the setup wizard Join this server to an existing compute cluster as as compute node option.
Using Automated Addition to Add a Node (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=64205)

Using Manual Addition to Add a Node (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=64206)

Approve nodes.
Managing Compute Nodes (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=64207)

Define cluster users and administrators. To do this, use the Configure Users Wizard from the Cluster Security tile in the Compute Cluster Administrator MMC snap-in.
Managing Cluster Security (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=64208)

Download the Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack SDK, if desired.
See the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=55873).
