    Cluster with a third server


    I want to connect two clustered CPUs to one Hard Drive, similar as the diagram showed in this URL: http://www.redhat.com/software/rhel/as/cluster/

    But this is a home lab, I do not have money to buy an externat Fibre Channel storage device and a Fibre Channel Lan Switch.

    I want to buy a third CPU which can share its Hard Drive (into a simple LAN), and simulate this third CPU's hard drive is the external storage device.

    Can I do this with Red Hat Linux Advanced Server 2.1?
    Could you explain me in a few words how to do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Cant really explain it in a few words but have you got Redhat advanced server its kinda expensive?? You could try MSClinux it works by having a main server that controls the cluster and nodes that you can add by booting them from a cd no HD needed. Here is there site -> http://www.msclinux.com/software/msclinux/

    Also try this site -> http://lcic.org/

    The software cost is not a problem because it will by paid by my company, I just need to pay for the hardware.

    Your answer means that I can do that as I explained using Red Hat Linux Advanced Server 2.1?

    I also explore the links you sent me.

    Sorry for the late post but im confused on what you want to accomplish What do you want the cluster for i thought you where creating one for fun hence the home lab. Do you need it for computation? . You need to go and reserch what you want the cluster for. And the best way to get it you wont get an answer in a few words.
