ServiceOn Microwave Element Manager - Installation Guide 1BInstalling SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 Service Pack 3

2 Installing SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 Service Pack 3

NOTICE

If you have a system already installed with a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 Service Pack 3 you can skip this section and go directly to section 3. Anyway you have to check if the system layout is compliant with the below requirements.

2.1 System start-up for installation

Insert the first SUSE Linux Service Pack 3 CD or DVD into the drive. Then reboot the computer to start the installation program from the medium in the drive.

If you experience problems booting from the CD or DVD check if the drive is correctly reported in the boot sequence and if it is supported by the current release.

NOTICE

If you install SUSE Linux on a 64 bit server (i.e.: target server HP DL 380 G5), you will receive this message “You are about to install 32-bit software on a 64-bit computer”. In this case you have to press `Continue` to start the installation phase.

2.2 The boot screen

NOTICE

It’s possible that your graphics card it’s not correctly detected by the installation process or maybe your card doesn’t have enough video RAM; in this case the system starts a textual installation with a selection proposal similar to graphics mode.

Figure 2-1 Boot screen

ServiceOn Microwave Element Manager - Installation Guide 1BInstalling SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 Service Pack 3

The boot screen has a number of menu items from which to select. To install the system, select `Installation` with the arrow keys. This loads YaST and start the installation.

A few seconds after starting the installation, SUSE Linux loads a minimal Linux

system to run the installation procedure and the system displays some messages and copyright notices. At this point to start the installation process you must accept the software license agreement by pressing the `I Agree` button. After a few more seconds, the screen should display the graphical interface that will guide you through the installation.

All YaST screens have a common layout, all the buttons and the entry fields can be accessed with the mouse or the keyboard.

2.3 Language Selection

YaST and SUSE Linux in general can be configured to use different languages according to your needs. The language selected at this point is the default used

also for the keyboard layout. If your keyboard layout is different you can change

it in the relative section. In addition YaST uses the language setting to guess a

time zone for your system clock. If your time zone is different you can change it

in the relative section during the installation procedure.

in the relative section during the installation procedure. Figure 2-2 Language Seclection 2.4 Installation Settings

Figure 2-2 Language Seclection

2.4 Installation Settings

After hardware detection, the `Installation Settings` window displays some information about the hardware recognized and proposes a number of installation and partitioning options. After selecting any of these items and configuring them in the corresponding dialog, you are always returned to the “Installation Settings” window, which is updated accordingly.

Keyboard Layout

Select the keyboard layout, if are not sure about your keyboard you can use the `Keyboard test` field to test if your choice is correct.

2.4.3

Mouse

If YaST failed to detect your mouse automatically you can use this dialog to manual specify you mouse selection.

2.4.4

Partitioning

With this dialog you can decide how to partition your system disks. In this section are proposed some guidelines that can be used to correctly partition your system.

Never use the partitioning scheme proposed by YaST.

Start the `Create custom partition setup`.

Use the `Expert Partitioner` selection, in this case it allow tweaking the partition setup in every detail.

For safety reason it is mandatory to use the Logical Volume manager. The LVM provides a higher level view of the disk storage; in fact storage volumes created under the control of the Logical Volume Manager can be resized and moved around almost at will.

Make sure that the boot partition, holding the kernel and the initial RAM disk, must be created outside the LVM control, so you have at least one physical partition to boot somewhere.

2.4.4.1

Create Boot Partition

Steps to execute:

Click on the `Partitioning` item.

The `Suggested portioning` window will appear.

Select `Create custom partition setup` and then on `Next` button.

In the `Preparing Hard Disk – Step 1` window select `Custom partitioning – for experts` and click on the `Next` button.

From the `Expert` dialog press `Create` and create a primary partition.

Figure 2-5 Expert Partitioner

If your system has more then one disk the Partitioner procedure asks you on which disk you like create the partition. The proposal selection is strictly related to the server hardware but in general, in case of multiple hard disks, the options should be something like this:

1: /dev/hda

2: /dev/hdb

Select 1) to create the boot partition on the first disk and click on the `OK` button.

The system display which type of partition you can create:

Primary partition or Extended partition.

The primary partition must be created with these features:

Format: Yes.

File system: Reiser.

Options: Default.

Encrypt file system: No.

File system size: 100 MB. To do that you have to put on the `End` section `+100M` (Figure 2-6). The `Start cylinder` should be correct

already so you don’t have to modify this value.

Fstab Options: Default

Mount point: /boot.

To create the partition you have to press the `OK` button.

2.4.4.2 Using LVM

From the `Expert` dialog press `Create` and create a primary partition.

If your system has more then one disk the Partitioner procedure asks you on which disk you like create the partition. The proposal selection is strictly related to the server hardware but in general, in case of multiple hard disks, the options should be something like this:

1: /dev/hda

2: /dev/hdb

Select 1) to create the LVM partition on the first disk and click on the `OK` button. The system display which type of partition you can create:

Primary partition.

2.4.5 Software

SUSE Linux contains a number of software packages for various application purposes. As it would be burdensome to select the needed packages one by one, SUSE Linux offers three system types with various installation scopes. For Service On Microwave you can select the `Default System`; this system type include the KDE desktop together with must of the KDE programs and the CUPS printer server.

2.4.6 Boot Configuration

During the installation YaST propose a boot configuration for your system. Normally leave these settings unchanged. If you want to change the YaST configuration edit the boot loader with attention after you have read the documentation. In the worst case the system can result unbootable.

2.4.7 Time Zone

In this dialog you can select the `Time Zone` for your server. You can choose between `local time` and `UTC`, the selection depends on how the hardware clock (BIOS) is set in your machine. If it is set to GMT you can use the UTC format as Time Zone.

2.4.8 Language

The language was already selected at the beginning of the installation, however at this step you can change this setting here.

2.4.9 Launching the Installation

When satisfied with the installation settings, click `Accept` in the suggestion window to begin the installation. Confirm with `Yes, install` in the green dialog that opens. Follow the on screen installation instructions, replacing CDs when required.

The installation takes between fifteen and thirty minutes, depending on the system performances and the software selected.

As soon as all packages are installed, YaST boots into the new Linux system.

After the first login you have to install the ServiceOn Microwave, the product installation is composed by eight sub products:

- ServiceOn Microwave 3pp

- ServiceOn Microwave Plug-ins

- ServiceOn Microwave Frameworks

- ServiceOn Microwave Interface

- ServiceOn Microwave Tools

- License Manager

- ServiceOn Microwave Core

- ServiceOn Microwave Disaster

3.1 Double LAN Configuration

If you have multiple LAN cards it’s strictly recommended to setup just one LAN on the server and you must ensure that it is the “eth0” card. All the others LAN cards must be disabled to avoid ServiceOn Microwave installation failure.

3.2 Fill System Files

Before load the software you have to check and modify some system files. The steps that must be performed are quite different if your ServiceOn Microwave structure uses a DNS or not to correctly translate the host names and the addresses (see section 2.5.2).

3.2.1 DNS Not Present

Hosts file: this file (/etc/hosts) is a simple text file that associates IP

address and hostnames, one line per IP address. For each host a single line should be present with the following information:

IP_address

fully_qualified_hostname

aliases

information: IP_address fully_qualified_hostname aliases Figure 3-1 ServiceOn Microwave Structure 28 1/1553-AOM 901

Figure 3-1 ServiceOn Microwave Structure

ServiceOn Microwave Element Manager - Installation Guide 2BInstall ServiceOn Microwave

In this case the /etc/hosts file must contains these rows:

172.16.245.167

gexs13.it.marconicomms.com gexs13

172.16.245.160

gexs14.it.marconicomms.com gexs14

172.16.245.34 gexs12.it.marconicomms.com gexs12

Nsswitch.conf file: this file (/etc/nsswitch.conf) is used to

configure which services are to be use to determine information such as hostnames, password files and group files. Its basic syntax is:

Database name-service-to-search

Then edit the file and change the hosts line to read:

hosts: files dns Which means, for programs that want to resolve an address, they should use first the /etc/hosts file.

Host.conf: this file (/etc/host.conf) is analogous to the previous (/etc/nsswitch.conf) but it performs similar tasks for different

functions. Then edit the file and change the order line to read:

order

hosts, bind

Resolv.conf file: this file (/etc/resolv.conf) is used by the

resolver, a set of routines C library that provides access to the Internet Domain Name System. In this case the file must be empty because the system doesn’t use any DNS and the names are resolved on the local machine.

3.2.2 DNS Present

Hosts file: this file (/etc/hosts) is a simple text file that associates IP

address and hostnames, one line per IP address. For each host a single line should be present with the following information:

IP_address canonical_hostname aliases

In this case the file should be modified in order to store only the name and the IP address of the local machine. Then using the data reported on Figure 3-1 the files should be modified in this way:

o

NOTICE

In case of primary DNS failure it possible observe a reduction of system performances. This why any DNS command waits the timeout to switch from primary to secondary DNS system. In this case if the fault is repetitive you can change the resolve priority in the /etc/resolv.conf file
