Linux Software Map: FAI - fully automatic installation


  • Version: 2.5, 6 august,2003
  • Entered-date: 2003-08-28
  • Description: FAI is a non interactive system to install a Debian GNU/Linux operating system on a Linux cluster. You can take one or more virgin PCs, turn on the power and after a few minutes Linux is installed, configured and running on the whole cluster, without any interaction necessary. Thus it's a scalable method for installing and updating a Beowulf cluster or a network of workstations unattended with little effort involved FAI uses the Debian distribution and a collection of shell- and Perl-scripts for the installation process. Changes to the configuration files of the operating system are made by cfengine, shell and Perl scripts.
