SIE LandonOS: Kickstart Install System

Abstract :

I would like to share with all of you my install and configuration method of HPC Systems. For the last two years I have been upgrading and recycling a great deal of clusters. Thanks to HPC Knowledge Portal, I have developed a system called “Ladon OS”. It allows me to upgrade HPC Systems. Its main advantage is the node install system based on Kickstart. Kickstart System is my best success. I’m very pleased to share it with all of you. It enables me to install many nodes in a very short period of time (Yes indeed. It is posible and it is true!). I would like to explain you, alive, how it works. To do this we will rip the file off so it will enable us to study its parts. Afterwards, I will show you how to customize a kickstart configuration file. And best of all: It is utterly simple. You will see it.
