Rapid POC installer for Eucalyptus
Latest commit 656e9ec @dkavanagh dkavanagh added BSD license


This set of files is designed to be part of an installer package delivered
on a USB drive. The whole package fits easily on a 1GB drive. 

>>> The latest version is in the centos6 directory and instructions are in the there.

These scripts perform an install with some assumptions which simplify the process and provide a stable starting point. We assume you have a fresh CentOS 5.6 install, configured on a network with a static IP. The cloud will use MANAGED_NOVLAN mode. All Eucalyptus components will be on one machine excepting the node controller. There will be 1 or more separate node controllers that are configured as part of a cluster. Here are some hardware requirements;
 - 2 or more machines required
 - 2 or more cores per machine
 - 1 NIC per machine
 - common network switch
 - A set of free IP addresses (in the same subnet as the Eucalyptus machines) must be available for Eucalyptus to use.
 - A large subnet (Class B, or full Class C preferably) of private address range should be made available for Eucalyptus.
 - Eucalyptus maintains its own internal DHCP server, which issues IP addresses to Eucalyptus VMs.
 - There should be no other DHCP server in the system that would issue an IP address to the VMs’ DHCP broadcast.
 - text console connection to all machines (though, not at same time)
