Installing the FileStore software on additional nodes in the cluster

After you have installed the operating system and FileStore software on the first node in a cluster, you can use this master node to install FileStore software on the additional nodes in the cluster.

To install FileStore software on additional nodes:

  1. Use the default user name a nd password (username/password) of master/master to log in to the FileStore CLI for the first time.

  2. Follow the on-screen instructions to change the default password. This step is important to maintain system security.

  3. On the master node, enter the cluster command to enter cluster mode. For example:

    test_01> cluster
    Cluster>
  4. To view IP addresses for the nodes that need to be installed, enter the following:

    Cluster> show

    For example:

    Cluster> show
    
    Node    State   CPU(15 min)  pubeth0(15 min)    pubeth1(15 min)
                          %      RX(MB/s) TX(MB/s)  RX(MB/s) TX(MB/s)
    ----    -----   -----------  -------- --------  -------- --------
    test_01 RUNNING     67.49        0.00     0.00      0.00     0.00
    
    
    Need to Install Nodes
    
    Index   State		
    -----			-----
    1       FileStore Not Installed (172.16.0.20)
    2       FileStore Not Installed (172.16.0.21)
    3       FileStore Not Installed (172.16.0.22)

    The output from the Cluster> show command includes a Need to Install Nodes section that lists the IP addresses of all nodes in the cluster that need to have FileStore software installed.

  5. To install FileStore software on the other nodes, enter:

    Cluster> install nodeip[,nodeip,...]

    where nodeip specifies the IP address of the node where you want to install FileStore software. To install on multiple nodes at the same time, you can enter more than one IP address that are separated by commas.

    For example:

    Cluster> install 172.16.0.20,172.16.0.21,172.16.0.22
    100% [#] FileStore is installing on 172.16.0.20, 172.16.0.21, 
    and 172.16.0.22.
  6. While the FileStore software installs, you can use the Cluster> show command to view the installation progress.

    For example:

    Cluster> show
    
    Node    State   CPU(15 min)  pubeth0(15 min)    pubeth1(15 min)
                          %      RX(MB/s) TX(MB/s)  RX(MB/s) TX(MB/s)
    ----    -----   -----------  -------- --------  -------- --------
    test_01 RUNNING     67.49        0.00     0.00      0.00     0.00
    
    
    Installed/Installing Nodes
    
    Node                  State
    -----																	-----
    8be703f-be4f-5fe2... Installing (Stage 1 of 3: Download install image) 
    9cf803f-af5f-4fe9... Installing (Stage 2 of 3: Configure Network)
    9de912e-ce6f-3fe7... Installed 5.7 (172.16.0.22)
  7. After the FileStore software is installed on the nodes, use the Cluster> add command to add the nodes to the cluster.

    To add nodes to the cluster, enter:

    Cluster> add nodeip

    where nodeip specifies the IP address of the node where you want to add to the cluster.

    For example:

    Cluster> add 172.16.0.20
    
    Checking ssh communication with 172.16.0.20 ...done
    Adding node to the cluster.........done
    Node added to the cluster
    New node's name is: test_02
