How to install the OS in virtual machie (VM Guest) of Integrity VM

Hi All,

I have created one VM with one virtual disk and virtual DVD.

Now i would like to install the OS.

For installing OS:

1)put the DVD into DVD-ROM drvie of the Integrity Server.

2)insert the CD to VM in the vMP using the command "in"

3)then we can use that.

Is it right?

Sounds correct.

Use ej-ect and in-sert again when changing to DVD 2.

Hope this helps!

Shalom,

Looks okay.

Don't make the mistake of doing a cd into the mount directory of the DVD.

If you do that you will get device busy when you try to go to DVD 2.

HI

Well there's a few things missing, in particular you need a virtual nic as well as a virtual disk and dvd. Also, there's some EFI work to perform before you can go to the installation. Note: You have to prep the EFI first.

I've attached a text doc entitled "HP Integrity Virtual Machines Version 4.1 Installation, Configuration, and
Administration". Its hard to read. See if you can find the PDF in the itrc.

Assuming your Windows version is compatible, not all are, Windows XP 2003 service pack 2 works.

Assumming you have the guest mgmt software and VM Manager.

Assumming you are using the entire disk with at least 34 GB.

You have to specify the O/S type when you create the guest.

hpvmcreate -P win1 -O windows -c 1 -r 2G \
-a disk:scsi::disk:/dev/rdisk/disk0 \
-a dvd:scsi::disk:/dev/rdisk/disk2 \
-a network:lan::vswitch:switch1

Boot the guest and get to the vmconsole

hpvmconsole -P win1 -fi -c "pc -on"

guest1] vMP> pc -on

(* wait for the startup to complete *)

CO

Find the DVD in the EFI FAT 32 file system report and go to it, i.e.,

fs0:

setupldr

And the Windows Installation menu should now appear.

Note: Unless recently changed, Custion Windows setup is not supported. You have to use Express.

Read the book attached. It gets a little complicated and I haven't gone into everything.

Good luck.

Sorry. It's late and I'm fat fingering. The above should read "...Custom Installation is not supported..."
