Script to install MD3000i Software

Here is a sample script to fully configure a cluster node. Edit the variable PATH_TO_RESOURCE_CD_CONTENTS and run this on each cluster node:


echo -Installing required software:
yum -y install kernel-devel gcc dkms linuxrdac || exit 1
echo -Modifying linuxrdac configuration:
LINUXRDAC_VERSION=$(rpm -q linuxrdac | cut -d - -f 2)
sed -i  '/^DisableLUNRebalance=.*$/ s/=.*$/=3/' /usr/src/linuxrdac-${LINUXRDAC_VERSION}/mpp.conf || return 1
echo -Reinstalling linuxrdac:
dkms uninstall -m linuxrdac -v $LINUXRDAC_VERSION || exit 1 && \
dkms remove -m linuxrdac -v $LINUXRDAC_VERSION --all || exit 1 && \
dkms add -m linuxrdac -v $LINUXRDAC_VERSION || exit 1 && \
dkms build -m linuxrdac -v $LINUXRDAC_VERSION || exit 1 && \
dkms install -m linuxrdac -v $LINUXRDAC_VERSION || exit 1
echo -Creating silent install file:
cat << EOF > /tmp/
echo -Installing MD Storage Software:
$PATH_TO_RESOURCE_CD_CONTENTS/linux/app/SMIA-LINUX-*.bin -i silent -f /tmp/
echo -Rebooting to read new initrd
