Thanks for including your steps. You've got the right idea, but there
are a few things you are missing before 'pvfs2-ping' will work:
You've got your config files now (/etc/pvfs2-fs.conf and
seven files like /etc/pvfs2-server.conf-comp-pvfs-0-XX ), so that's a
good start. When i say 'comp-pvfs-0-XX' i mean "the name of an I/O
or metadata server"
You'll have to somehow get those files from prospero to the other
describes one approach using 'scp', but it's probably easiest to just
"scp /etc/pvfs2-* comp-pvfs-0-XX:/etc/" for each of your servers.
Then on each node, you need to create the storage space with the '-f'
option to pvfs2-server:
pvfs2-server -f pvfs2-fs.conf pvfs2-server.conf-comp-pvfs-0-XX
After you create the storage space, then you can start the servers.
Again, do this on each node (note, there's no -f option):
pvfs2-server pvfs2-fs.conf pvfs2-server.conf-comp-pvfs-0-XX
Once all the servers are running (one on each of your machines) you'll
be able to run pvfs2-ping. Once pvfs2-ping reports everything is OK,
then you can move on to the kerrnel interface.
