we have 64 seamicro xeons that need kickstarted with rhel6.  They are already in dns and inventory (including their proper dhcp setup):


inventory links are found here:  https://inventory.mozilla.org/en-US/systems/racks/?location=0&status=&rack=167&allocation=

In order to have a 100% unattended installation of the nodes, need to make sure that all the nodes have "DHCP option Host Name" set in inventory.

running the script now to set nic.X.option_hostname.0 to correspond to each system correctly. I will update this when it's complete.

rtucker update the inventory entries with the correct IPs and DHCP option Host Name settings.
Netops (casey) fixed an misconfiguration on the network side.

node0.bunker.scl3.mozilla.com is up and installed (test bed), now nodes 1-63 are currently being installed.

All 64 nodes kickstarted, currently puppetizing in batches of 16.

On a side notes, seems nodes 40-63 didn't have disks assigned but were assigned when I noticed. Seems this was caused by Bug 811726

Also set the description (ie hostname) for all 63 nodes.

All nodes have been puppetized and basic nagios checks added.

The chassis (seamicro-a1.r102-3.console.scl3.mozilla.com) was not being monitored but is now.
