You can start mnesia with {extra_db_nodes, KnownNodes]}. This will establish a ram-only schema on the current node, containing all meta-data about the database (assuming KnownNodes contains actual schema nodes). After starting, you can call mnesia:change_table_copy_type(schema, node(), disc_copies), to make the schema on the current node persistent.
