When we download the RPi operating system (anyone of them) images, is there a way to preset the RPi unit so that it takes a certain IP address?
Right now, my router leases IP addresses via DHCP, and so when I copy the OS image to the SD card, I have to hook up a keyboard and monitor to each RPi to log in and manually set the IP to a static IP.
I am building a cluster of RPi's and as I keep adding nodes, I have to repeat this cumbersome task for each new node.
Also, any way to preset the host name is also helpful.
Is there some software that can administer a cluster of RPi's? Assume I have a closed network RPi cluster (all nodes linked by a simple switch), can I setup a "master" node that will automatically setup the newly added nodes?
