    264  Then, follow the rest instructions. However in our case the compute node (2950) and the head node (860) are somewhat similar. For a more general case that the architectures are significantly different, you should mount /install in head node to compute node (on your head node /install should already be exported in /etc/exports), then generate the image on the compute node (refer to genimage manpage for details).

    265265=== Node discovery === 
    266266With xCAT, a node can be powered on and discovered automatically. Unlike the previous cases that nodes have to be known by the head node so that the head node can issue some ipmi commands to boot/install a compute node, in this case, the node can be rather unknown to the head node. However, some configurations are needed to make this work.
