Lustre Installation using IML

Report
Intel® Manager for Lustre*
Lustre Installation & Configuration
Implementing an IEEL Solution
Session 04
June 2014
1
FOR USE IN IEEL SOLUTION CLASS ONLY
Description of Lustre Installation Lab
• You will use IML Manager to deploy a Lustre file system
• Review Lustre best practices employed by IEEL
• Create a Lustre file system
• Mount Lustre v2.5 Clients
• Review IML monitoring a fully configured Lustre file system
For this lab you will need to access the IEEL Training Cluster via:
•
•
Browser (Recommended: Google Chrome v27 or Mozilla Firefox v22)
Terminal or Windows Putty Command Line Interface

Lustre Installation Requirements
IML implements a set of Lustre Best Practices during Lustre install
• This puts specific requirements against the server hardware configurations
• Install Intel® EE for Lustre* only as described in the IEEL Partner
Installation Guide
Required operating system: Red Hat* Enterprise Linux v6.5 or CentOS v6.5
Network and DNS configuration: Confirm correct network and DNS (FQDNs).
•
The management network interfaces must be properly configured and active
•
Do not configure IP addresses for the HA crossover cable interfaces (server to
target)
RAM and mass storage: Provide adequate memory and disk space
4
•
Take advantage of the IEEL Partner support and request a review by Intel HPDD
•
See “Determining Space Requirements” and “Determining Memory Requirements”
in the Lustre Operations Manual.

IEEL Training Cluster Review
Lustre Installation Requirements (cont)
Server Configuration: Servers are configured in HA pairs, with a
primary and secondary server
• Storage servers should have SSH running with root login permitted.
•
Non-root users should be prevented from logging into the storage servers
• Do not install or configure Lustre, Corosync, or Pacemaker.
• Do not configure NTP on storage servers
• Do provide power control to the IML manager via either IPMI or PDU
outlets
Storage Configuration: Read “Adding storage servers” in the IEEL
Partner Installation Guide
• Provide separate Volumes for the MGT and the MDT
• Shared storage for HA on MDT, MGT, OSTs

High Availability Requirements
IML implements High Availability as a part of Lustre Best Practices
See “Creating a new HA Lustre file system” in the IEEL Installation
Guide
• Storage servers are deployed in a high availability (HA)
configuration with shared storage.
• Servers are configured in primary and failover server pairs. When a
server becomes unavailable, Lustre services that were running on
that server are started on another server attached to the same
storage.
• To support HA failover, each HA server must be able to
automatically power-off its peer server if a failover is required.
• Powering off a faulty server is known as "node fencing”, and
ensures that a shared storage device is not mounted by more than
one server at a time.

High Availability Requirements (cont)
IML implements High Availability as a part of Lustre Best Practices
See “Creating a new HA Lustre file system” in the IEEL Installation Guide
• Provide shared storage for HA on MDT, MGT, OSTs
• Each server of a failover pair must have access to exactly the same
LUNs as its peer. Each LUN is visible only to its two, paired failover
servers.
• To properly enforce Lustre file permissions
• The MDS must have the same UID/GID database access as the
Lustre clients
• Using LDAP, the MDS’s must be configured to check for user
account information on both nodes to ensure proper
functionality in the event of a failover.
