    I get the following trying to install the custer:

    Everything from then on fails saying “Skipping because of failed dependencies” — Any help would be appreciated

    Sorry to hear that you encountered this issue. It is a known issue that will be fixed in the upcoming release. For now the workaround is to run the following command on each of the cluster node:
    yum install -y net-snmp net-snmp-utils
    After this you should be able to continue, HMC will require you to reinstall the cluster.
    Can you tell us the operating system and the version where you are having the issue?

    That worked (or at least got to the next error)

    I’m using Centos 5.6

    Hi Mark,

    Is there any chance you can do a clean install on the target with CentOS 5.7?
