Whenever multiple servers share data between each other and especially when those servers have common applications and are attached to a high-speed network a Cluster Filesystem is a good option to share data. Consequently it would be optimal to not only share the data of applications but to share every data which is shareable. That means also the so called root-Filesystem is to be shared.
One of the crucial parts of diskless clusters is the bootsequence or the boot process. Therefore this document describes all steps involed in booting a server until the normal initprocess is executed.
