Hi All,

Using Rocks HPC 5.1 x86-64 install DVD ISO, I have successfully installed the Frontend node. However, I can't seem to install the compute nodes. It's taking an extremely long time waiting at the "Starting install process. This may take several minutes..." screen and the Frontend node eventually hangs or crashes after a lengthy 2 hour wait.

Anyone has any experience with Rocks HPC cluster software working on Xen? I suspect it could be a Xen networking-related issue. The compute node installation keeps making HTTP requests to the frontend node forever while the frontend node keeps transmitting HTTP replies to the compute node installation forever.

Please refer to the following SDSC mailing list threads here:



Thank you very much.
