Simpler Navigation coming for Servers and Operating Systems
Coming soon: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We will combine many of the older boards, and you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. If you are looking for an older board and do not find it, check the consolidated boards, as the posts are still there.

Re: Installation Procedure

Put the cdrom into the drive, type in "boot dka400" (if dka400 is your cd-rom drive, check with "show device" first) on SRM console (">>>"). Follow the instructions on screen.

It is as simple as installing an windows machine ;-)

Re: Installation Procedure

Hi Marvin,

If you are looking for documentation to help you get started, I'd reference the Installation Guide and Release Notes found online at ...

Here you will find bookshelfs of documentation for specific versions of the operating system. Select the appropriate version for the distribution you have, then under System & Network Management you will find the Installation Guide, Advanced Installation Guide and the Release Notes. The Adv. Install Guide covers more advanced features like RIS (Remote Installation Services), cloning systems, Worldwide Language support, details on planning disk space, and using the Shell during an installation - good for problem recovery.

Hope this helps. If you have more specific questions, fire away!
