Mayu provides a set of mechanisms to bootstrap PXE-enabled bare metal nodes that must follow a specific configuration with Container Linux.
Mayu requires some basic configuration and layer 2 connectivity to the rest of the nodes. Usually the cluster’s management node is used for this. The management node acts as a PXE server and should support three kinds of requests from the rest of the nodes: PXE, DHCP, and bootp. The rest of the nodes should be configured to boot via ethernet by default and share a network segment with the management node, so they get the PXE boot data from the management node on DHCP request.
Developing Mayu requires the following tools to be installed.
