Yesterday, I installed Debian Wheezy onto one system, and loaded up blender to auto start with network render selected, and have the user auto login.
Today I cloned each drive off of that one original, with the exception of 2 drives, one which needed to have 32-bit debian and blender installed, and another which had fewer sectors than the source drive, so I manually installed on that drive as well. Also checked the BIOS settings for each box, set up VNC, manual IP in accordance with node number, and changed the hostnames to reflect the node number.
After dinner, I plugged the power cords in and did some cable management. They’re all ready to go once the power strip and network stuff gets here.
