    Does the cluster run as a background application?

    If I wanted to play solitare on an individual machine would it run on the cluster or as an app on one of the host machines?

    I have many issues with dependencies in RHEL 6 like mod_cluster any many other like ricci not found I have to do manually with rpm -ivh which causes many issues instead of on yum. It’s a very good article, but more explanation required like fencing and iscsi creation etc..

    We have an SGI cluster .SUSE 11 installed on it. from few days on master node only cd and echo commands are working. data is their on cluster.
    so it is OS crash problem or something else.

    Thanks a lot for sharing your knowledge to us. I have learnt real experience about cluster. Have one more query, is it possible to implement cluster in all RHEL versions. (RHEL5/6/7)?
