One big thing that I like about Bright Cluster Manager is that it makes complicated, time-consuming tasks easy and quick. Take for example, sharing a directory and making it available on your compute nodes.
This article describes how to NFS export a directory from the head node and mount it on a set of nodes using the Bright Cluster Manager CMGUI. We'll use /scratch as an example.
Here's what we need to do:
1. NFS export /scratch on the head node
2. Mount master:/scratch on the nodes as /scratch
Here's how to do that in CMGUI:
Select the head node in the resource tree, then select the "FS Exports" tab, then press the "Add" button
