Link t0 Part 1 Setting up Linux Operating System Clusters on Hyper-V
This blog post is the second in a series of three that walks through setting up Linux operating system clusters on Hyper-V. The walk-through uses Red Hat Cluster Suite (RHCS) as the clustering storage and Hyper-V’s Shared VDHX as the shared storage needed by the cluster software.
Part 1 of the series showed how to set up a Hyper-V host cluster and a shared VHDX. Then it showed how to set up five CentOS 6.7 VMs in the host cluster, all using the shared VHDX.
This post will set up the Linux OS cluster with the CentOS 6.7 VMs, running RHCS and the GFS2 file system. RHCS is specifically for use with RHEL/CentOS 6.x; RHEL/CentOS 7.x uses a different clustering software package that is not covered by this walk through. The GFS2 file system is specifically designed to be used on shared disks accessed by multiple nodes in a Linux cluster, and so is a natural example to…
