OMF Aggregate Managers Configuration

Check DNS

At this stage of the install, the console should be resolving DNS information against it self. Make a quick check to ensure that the hostname xmpp can be resolved.

root@console:/export# host xmpp
xmpp.geni.rutgers.edu is an alias for consolec.geni.rutgers.edu.
consolec.geni.rutgers.edu has address 10.1.0.254

If this resolution fails the services begin configured will fail to communicate with the installed openfire service on the console. Consequenctly none of the omf-5.4 calls will work.

Run Service Setup Script

Run the service setup script as root:

/usr/sbin/geni_omf_setup

This will configure the following files:

  • TODO list files

Setup image repository

The default image location directory is /var/lib/omf-images-5.4, we're going to re-point this directory to /export/omf-images-5.4 so that we don't run into space constraint issues (This is why we made it a separate partition).

  1. Create target
    mkdir /export/omf-images-5.4
    
  2. Remove the old source
    rmdir /var/lib/omf-images-5.4
    
  3. create a symbolic link
    ln -s /export/omf-images-5.4 /var/lib/omf-images-5.4
    

Now we can download a copy of the baseline image into our image repository. In the /export/omf-images-5.4 directory and make it world readable.

wget http://packages.orbit-lab.org/downloads/baseline.ndz
chmod 666 baseline.ndz

Test STAT and LOAD

Once these pieces are in place, we should be able to check the node status with:

omf-5.4 stat -t all

Which should produce output similar to

INFO NodeHandler: OMF Experiment Controller 5.4 (git 070b00f)
...
INFO Topology: Loaded topology 'system:topo:all'.

Talking to the CMC service, please wait
-----------------------------------------------
 Node: node1.geni.rutgers.edu   	 State: POWEROFF
 Node: node2.geni.rutgers.edu   	 State: POWEROFF
 Node: node3.geni.rutgers.edu   	 State: POWEROFF
-----------------------------------------------

INFO EXPERIMENT_DONE: Event triggered. Starting the associated tasks.
...
finished after 0:5

Finally we can load an image onto a node with the following

omf-5.4 load -t node1.geni.rutgers.edu -i baseline.ndz

If all goes well we will see results similar to the following:

INFO NodeHandler: OMF Experiment Controller 5.4 (git 070b00f)
...

The duration of the installation will depend on the speed of the switches you have installed.
