Pinned topic Help about installing GPFS

‏2010-04-11T19:44:13Z |
Hello,

Am having some problems installing gpfs. Am using Scientific Linux 5.4

All ready i have done

  1. echo "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.1 (Tikanga)" > /etc/redhat-release

command because i have read that this could be a problem.

I Have installed gpfs rpm-s...So now it time to install portability layer.

When i type make Autoconfig command i get this:
  1. make Autoconfig
cd /usr/lpp/mmfs/src/config; ./configure --genenvonly; /usr/bin/cpp -P def.mk.proto > ./def.mk; exit $? || exit 1
Cannot find a valid kernel include dir
def.mk.proto:12:19: error: env.mcr: No such file or directory
make: *** Autoconfig Error 1
Can someone please help me? :)

    You need a bunch of extra RPM's that are not installed by default to build the compatibility layer these include from memory

    imake
    gcc-c++
    kernel-headers
    kernel-devel

    You error message indicates that you don't have at least the kernel-headers RPM for your running kernel installed.

    Note that you can get away with appending "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5 (Tikanga)" to the end of /etc/redhat-release. At least with CentOS it makes the updates to grub.conf happier when a new kernel is installed.

    Hi,

    I have installed kernel-devel and i get next outputs (see atachment).
    This are the rpm-s.

    gpfs.base-3.3.0-0.x86_64.rpm
    gpfs.gpl-3.3.0-0.noarch.rpm
    gpfs.docs-3.3.0-0.noarch.rpm
    gpfs.gui-3.3.0-0.x86_64.rpm
    gpfs.msg.en_US-3.3.0-0.noarch.rpm

    And folowing tutorial on http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/wikis/display/hpccentral/GPFS+Quick+Start+Guide+for+for+Linux.

    When i want to run command

    1. mmcrcluster -N node01:quorum,node02:quorum -p node01 -s node02 -r /usr/bin/ssh -R /usr/bin/scp

    nothing is happening...When i tab for commands there is just mmount...

    Can some one give me a link to detail installation of GPFS please.
    Thank you, Nikola

    You don't want to be running at 3.3.0.0 - that was not a viable release. Download the update package from:

    http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/gpfs/home.html

    3.3.0.5 is the current service level.

    Can you ssh without passwords between all the boxes?

    You also need to specify a cluster name with -C I believe.

    Checking on my boxes I have put the type down as manager-quorum, in the command you have given there are no manager nodes, so that is not going to work I believe.

    From a quick Google this looks reasonably complete

    http://www.gridpp.ac.uk/wiki/Storm_GPFS_Install

    One tip I would suggest is using a NodeFile to hold the node descriptions, and likewise when creating your NSD's and save them. Makes referring back to what you did easier.

    Hi Jonathan Buzzard
    Thanks a lot, This solved my issue, I was adding one Linux node in the running AIX gpfs cluster and facing the following error in the mmfs:

    Fri Aug 24 15:30:29 IST 2012: runmmfs starting
    Removing old /var/adm/ras/mmfs.log.* files:

    I was not able to run "make Autoconfig, make World and make InstallImages" command and after installing the RPMs, it solved the issue. Thanks a lot once again.

    Yes,I have the same problem that "grka" says, and it's true that the linux node doesn't have many rpms:

    imake
    gcc-c++
    kernel-headers
    kernel-devel

     

    Use yum list find if system have these packs,if not, use yum install (packname) install the absense pack , then run " make Autoconfig", this problem will be resolved.
