    116 Note that you only need to specify the node and groups, the status and statustime is populated automatically, it will not reflect the real status if you change it outside of xCAT (e.g. press the power button to turn it off instead of using xCAT's ipmi). In xCAT group is somewhat similar with the concept in Linux. It's convenient in the sense that you can operate commands on a group without specifying each individual member.

In xCAT group is somewhat similar with the concept in Linux. It's convenient in the sense that you can operate commands on a group without specifying each individual member. Run the following to verify nodelist works: 
     117{{{ 
     118#nodels compute 
     119n01 
     120... 
     121}}} 
     122 
     123Next, we setup the node hardware management table, i.e., nodehm. Mine looks like this: 
     124{{{ 
     125#node,power,mgt,cons,termserver,termport,conserver,serialport,serialspeed,serialflow,getmac,comments,disable 
     126"n01","ipmi","ipmi",,,,,,,,,, 
     127"n02","ipmi","ipmi",,,,,,,,,, 
     128}}} 
     129Note that we will configure ipmi to allow LAN access. Some people may need to use console over LAN access -- this is not covered here.  
    117130=== IPMI Configuration === 
    118  
     131First, when you installed xCAT, an ipmitool package comes with it. Make sure you are not using ipmitool from other sources. You don't need to ipmitool in most cases, but it's important to know if you have troubles. Obviously DELL's ipmi implementation is different from IBM's.  
    119132=== Netboot image === 
    120133The genimage command invokes genintrd automatically to generate the initrd for netboot.
