Installation of a node with Quattor

On lxadm, you must use the PrepareInstall script. For example:

                PrepareInstall -v --aimsgroup lcg hostname

Note that the aimsgroup option should point to the directory used by GD (i.e. lcg). If a kickstart file for a GD machine already exists (for example in fio-is subdirectory), Veronique.Lefebure@cernNOSPAMPLEASE.ch must be contacted to remove this kickstart file.

There is some interesting options:

  • --rep: represents the directory where the kickstart file will be stored (for GD it is /afs/cern.ch/project/linux/redhat/kickstart/cfg/lcg").
  • --mail: specify the mail adress where the installation log file should be sent in case of failure.

The host certificate must have been generated before the execution of the PrepareInstall script, otherwise it fails. Details related to the generation of a host certificate can be found here.
