Triton compute node setup

Modified: 20 May 2019 09:07 UTC

After installing the head node you will need to boot and set up the compute node(s). This page describes the steps to achieve this. These steps can also be used to add additional compute nodes to an existing Triton deployment.

This document makes the assumption that you have reviewed the information provided in the sections entitled Triton hardware selection and Triton hardware configuration in order to ensure your hardware is compatible with Triton and is configured properly from a BIOS, RAID, console, and boot order standpoint. If not, please review those documents before proceeding.

          2. Boot 20190204T130507Z              
          3. [Esc]ape to loader prompt          
          4. Reboot                             

          Options:                              
          5. Configure Boot [O]ptions...        

Note: If the system displays flashing cursor or does not show any activity for an extended period of time (greater than 20 minutes) you most likely need to redirect the console from the Options menu. The console defaults to ttyb. If you have redirected the console, you will need to change it back to ttyb. To do so:

For more information, refer to the Advanced head node boot options document.

After the server boots, a login prompt displays, similar to the following image. Do not log in at this point. First, set up the compute node.

Simultaneous multi-threading setting

By default, all newly installed Triton systems have simultaneous multi-threading enabled. If desired, you can modify this default by setting the suitable server parameter.
