Description of request:
It would be nice if we could script a cluster/storage setup using the existing
ricci/luci infrastructure. I am currently working on a script that will
communicate with ricci, and perform a limited subset of what luci does, such as
prompt for cluster name, node names, install packages, create cluster.conf, and
reboot the nodes. I would also like to be able to prompt for shared storage dev
ice (or probe), and automate a GFS volume creation after the cluster is running.
This would be useful for smaller (say 2-node direct attached to storage)
implementations, where a lot of the variables are known.
Deferring this requirement to RHEL6 when we'll have a QMF interface for ricci and can build a true CLI off of that interface.
