4. EMULAB INTEGRATION
For Emulab to know about the MFSes you have just installed, you will need
to add some database state. This is done using the "load-descriptors"
script in your Emulab build tree:
cd <your-elab-build-dir>/install
./load-descriptors <your-elab-source-dir>/<descriptor-file>
<descriptor-file> is either "descriptors.sql" or "descriptors-new.sql"
depending on whether you are going to load FreeBSD4+Redhat9 or
FreeBSD6+Fedora6 as your standard image on disks. Sorry, but this is a
bit of a forward reference, since determining which of those you want
means skipping ahead and looking at:
http://www.emulab.net/downloads/generic-image-README.txt
which is part of customizing a disk image for your nodes. Look at part II
of that file ("Which generic image do I need?"). If you choose FBSD62+FC6,
then use "descriptors-new.sql", otherwise use "descriptors.sql".
(In the next release, we will separate the DB state for the MFS images from
that of the disk images, and get rid of this confusing step...)
