[Beowulf] recommendation on crash cart for a cluster room: fullcluster KVM is not an option I suppose?

Most decent nodes will have IPMI and kvm over IP built in.  That and a 
reasonable serial concentrator will make your admins lives *much*
easier.


I agree wholeheartedly with what Joe says.

And Rahul, are you not talking to vendors who are telling you about
their remote management and
node imaging capabilities? By vendors, I do not mean your local Tier 1
salesman, who sells servers to normal businesses
and corporations.
I mean either a specialised cluster vendor, such as those on this list,
or the HPC specialist team
within (Sun, Dell, IBM, HP...)
