20060322: Before installing tbsetup/ns2ir/ rev 1.109 (3/22/06).
This revision introduces a new features/desire pair called
"firewallable". All nodes in a firewalled experiment require
this feature from a node. So you will need to do:
insert into node_type_features values ('TYPE','firewallable',0);
for every node type 'TYPE' which can participate in a firewalled
experiment. The current requirement for a 'firewallable' node
is that it can be powered off (not just power cycled). This is
required for proper post-swapout cleaning of nodes. Another
attribute to consider is whether you can prevent a node from
booting anywhere other than the network. If you have nodes that
can timeout from PXE boot and that will fall back to booting from
the hard drive, you may want to NOT make those nodes 'firewallable'.
