> Hi,
> I would like to know if we have or can make( or prepare) a USB bootable OS
> that we can boot in a cluster and its nodes to test all its functionality.
> The purpose of this is to boot a new or existing cluster to check its
> health, including Infiniband network,  any cards, local hard disks, memory
> etc, so that I don't have to disturb the existing OS and its configuration.
> If possible, it would be nice to boot the compute nodes from the master
> node.
> Anyone knows of any pre-existing distribution that will do the job ? Or
> know how to do it with Centos or Ubuntu ?
> Thanks,
> Richard.
