Version 5.0

shared for all processes so they only need to be specified a single time, as in a single-process
implementation. For example, for a chassis with two processes, the following node or cluster
configuration file entries could be utilized:
processes = 2
ipaddress = 192.10.11.200 192.10.11.201
netmask = 255.255.0.0
gateway = 192.10.1.1
Note
While not required, you might find it helpful to assign IP addresses for a chassis in a
contiguous sequence to assist with monitoring and maintenance of the related volumes.
For example: 192.10.11.200, 192.10.11.201, and so on.
A.1.3. Using the vols parameter
When configuring a multi-server chassis, the vols parameter in the node or cluster configuration
file specifies the volume or volumes that DX Storage can use for cluster storage. The recommended
setting, vols = all, causes DX Storage to use all volumes except the USB flash drive.
vols = all causes all disk volumes in a chassis to be evenly distributed among the number of DX
Storage processes as defined by the processes parameter. This distribution occurs automatically
at boot time and adapts to any changes in the number of disks or processes from the previous boot.
In other words, the distribution of disk volumes to the DX Storage processes change if necessary.
Note
The volsN parameters (for example, vols0, vols1) from DX Storage version 3.0 are
deprecated and should be replaced with vols = all.
For more information, see Section 6.5, “Managing Volumes”.
A.1.4. Using the subcluster parameter
When using multi-server mode, all nodes in a chassis are assigned a subcluster name, either by
the administrator or automatically at boot time. You optionally set the subcluster name using the
subcluster parameter.
If the subcluster parameter is blank or not set, an automatic value is assigned when using multi-
server mode in DX Storage. The automatic subcluster assignment sets the subcluster name to
the value of the first IP address for the chassis. The automatic assignment of subcluster creates a
different subcluster each multi-server chassis.
If you choose to name your subcluster, set subcluster = to a value of at most 16 characters in
length. Special characters like quotation marks are forbidden. For instance, to name the chassis
ServerXYZ, enter the following in the node or cluster configuration file:
subcluster = ServerXYZ
When you assign the subcluster, you can include more than one multi-server chassis in the same
subcluster provided more than one subcluster is used for the whole cluster.
