The LifeKeeper for the Linux GUI uses the X Window System. We need to install it on each node.

  • Install x11 to the machine.
  • Install x11 related packages and enable it with the following steps:
  1. Install x11 related packages.
# yum install  xorg-x11-server-Xorg xorg-x11-xauth -y

  1. Check the X11Forwarding parameter in /etc/ssh/sshd_config to confirm that it is set to yes. If it is not set to yes, edit the file.

  1. Assuming the system is booted to X11, start GUI sessions at start-up. If not, this step can be ignored.
# systemctl set-default
Removed /etc/systemd/system/
