    Release Information

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 12.3.

    Description

    Create a compute node. A compute node is the interface with the VSE device that runs the host operating system (host OS). A compute node is a member of a compute cluster. Each compute node requires that you configure network interfaces and the media access control (MAC) address of the compute node that you want to create. Configuring the syslog statement is optional.

    When you commit the compute node configuration, the compute node is booted. Compute nodes bootstrap using network boot, or PXE. For instructions on how to enable PXE and complete setting up the compute node for applications, see Configuring the DHCP Server and TFTP Server for Compute Nodes.

    Options

    compute-node-name

    Name of the compute node. When you commit the compute-node name, the compute node is booted with that name as the operational node name. Any time you change the compute-node name in the CLI, the compute node needs to be rebooted.

    mac-address

    MAC address of the network boot interface of the compute node. The MAC address is essential so that the compute node can PXE-boot, or boot through the network interface, rather than from the local hard disk. The compute node identifies itself to the router with the network boot interface mac-address.

    The remaining statements are explained separately.
