I want to setup two Sun Spark T5140s connected by a Fibre Channel cable in a compute cluster (with my laptop?). I will be working in the future with Python, R, Matlab and some FEM packages and need the servers to run the compute. I have a few things bought that should suffice to get things going. Please advise a lump sum of the time it will take to setup the servers and if you could make a video in case I ever have to do it myself, like when I start using SSDs. Please let me know if it would be better to have solaris on my laptop as well.
List of what I have:
2 T5140 Sun Spark Servers with 4 HDDs each and 64 gb ram
1 Fibre Channel cable
1 cross over cable
1 Oracle Sunray 3 thin client w/ monitor
All the types of Solaris 11.2 downloaded
1 mobaXterm and putty installed on laptop
5 catv6 ethernet cables
1 wireless keyboard, also 1 usb unix keyboard but unsure if it works
*need an ethernet cable long enough to reach internet router in case this will be done remotely.
