I am trying to experiment with OpenSSI. I currently have two computers
connected to a router. They receive an IP address via DHCP from the
router. I am compiling the kernel from 0.98 sources.
It compiles without any errors. However, when I try to run
cluster_mkinitrd, I get the error: "local hardware address not found." If
I run the command "addnode," the error goes away and I am able to create
the ramdisk. However, the system hangs upon bootup. I get a kbd> prompt.
Does anyone know how to solve the "local hardware address not found?"
Any help is appreciated.

This is not good. OpenSSI depends on a DHCP server running on the init
node for adding and booting dependent nodes. If you have a "promiscuous"
DHCP server running on the same network, you'll have conflicts.
Potential solutions include:
- shutting off the DHCP feature of the router
- telling it to ignore the hardware addresses of the machines you wish
to add to the cluster, and reserving a static IP address for each
- connecting the machines to different switch

Did you run the 'addnode -1' command? It allows you to pick one of your
local interfaces then adds its hardware address to /etc/clustertab.
BTW, this step has been automated in the OpenSSI for Red Hat 0.9.9 release.
Hope this helps,
