IBM PowerLinux Linux installation quick start with a graphics card video transcript The following is a transcript of the spoken content of the IBM PowerLinux Linux installation quick start with a graphics card video. In this video, I ll show you how to prepare an unmanaged PowerLinux server to install Linux using a graphics card and monitor. An unmanaged server does not use system management interfaces like HMC or IVM. You'll need a graphics monitor, a USB keyboard, a USB mouse, power cables, an ethernet cable, and the Linux installation media. This video illustrates installing Linux on an 8246-L2C IBM PowerLinux 7R2 server. You'll be following these steps. The video redisplays the list of steps along the way. Installing Linux on Power Systems servers 3

10 To install the PowerLinux server in a rack, see the information located in the Systems Hardware Information Center. When installed in a rack, the front of the server looks like this. The back of the server looks like this. Note the orange power supply shipping bracket, which you must remove before supplying power to the server. Connect the graphics monitor cable by plugging it into the graphics card in the back of the server. Connect the USB keyboard by plugging it into one of the two USB ports in the back of the server. Connect the USB mouse by plugging it into the other of the two USB ports in the back of the server. Connect a network cable from the network router with a DHCP server to the eth0 port of the network interface card on the back of the server, which is typically the top-most port. When the Linux installer runs, it will automatically configure the server network settings with information obtained from the DHCP server. Verify that the power cables and supplies match the plug and voltage requirements of the server. If you have not already done so, remove the power supply shipping brackets. Install the power cables in the back of the server by first pushing in the power modules. Then, plug the cables into the power modules. Now it's time to power on the server. Locate the control panel in the front of the server. Left to right, it has a round, white power button, 3 LEDs, a USB port, another LED, and a rectangular button that ejects the control panel from the body of the server. Wait for the power LED, which is the leftmost, to be flashing green. Press the round power button with an object that allows you to hold it in until the power LED is solid green, which indicates the system is powering on. Press the eject button so that the control panel is no longer completely in the server body, and pull it toward you until you can swivel it downward. Signs that the system is powering on include reference codes appearing on the control panel display, and the sound of the cooling fans operating. Insert the Linux installation media into the DVD tray on the front of the server. If the tray eject button does not eject the tray, push a paper clip into the hole on the front of the tray to eject it manually. Now it's time to boot the installer for your Linux distribution. If prompted, press the appropriate key to select the monitor as the active console. On the Language Keyboard Selection Menu, select option 3 to continue booting. On the License Agreement Menu, assuming you want to accept the printed license agreement provided with the server, select option 1 to accept it. Type the password for the FSP admin account, and press Enter. The default password depends on how you ordered your server. If you ordered your server preloaded, the admin password is passw0rd, spelled p-a-s-s-w-0-r-d. If you ordered it without a preload, the admin password is admin, spelled a-d-m-i-n. Either way, the letters in the password are all lowercase. You are now in the System Management Services (or SMS) menus. On the SMS Main Menu, select option 5 to select boot options. On the Multiboot menu, select option 1 to select the boot device. On the Select Device Type menu, select option 7 to list all devices. 4 Linux: Installing Linux on Power Systems servers

11 If you don't see the CD-ROM device in the list, press the N key to display the next page in the list. When you see the CD-ROM device in the list, type its corresponding device number, and press Enter to select it. On the Select Task menu, select option 2 to select a normal mode boot. Finally, select option 1 to confirm that you want to exit SMS and boot the server. The server boots to the boot prompt for the installer of your Linux distribution. To boot the installer, type the word linux for Red Hat, or the word install for SuSE, and press Enter. This video shows Red Hat. After a while, you are prompted to test the installation media, or skip the test. This video skips that test. Next, you are presented with the first menu of installer. Proceed to install Linux as usual. If you're installing Red Hat, you may encounter an issue where the installer requires more memory than the firmware has allocated to the installer. The memory issue appears in the form of the kernel failing to load, and your being presented with an Open Firmware prompt, which looks like a zero and a right angle bracket. If you see this, proceed as follows. Type printenv real-base and press Enter to display the value of the real-base open firmware environment variable value. The value is likely a 2 followed by six zeros. Change the value by typing setenv real-base c followed by five zeros, and pressing Enter. Verify that the new value has been set by running the previous printenv command again. Finally, type reset-all and press Enter. This instructs open firmware to reboot the server, leading to the boot prompt for the installer. Once again, type the word linux in lowercase, and press Enter to boot the installer and proceed to install Linux. We d love to hear your feedback about this video. To get involved in the conversation, join the PowerLinux Community on IBM developerworks. You can find a quick start document describing this process. You can find more information about PowerLinux in the IBM Linux Information Center. You can find complete information about the 8246-L2C IBM PowerLinux 7R2 server in the IBM Systems Hardware Information Center. IBM PowerLinux Linux installation quick start without a graphics card video transcript The following is a transcript of the spoken content of the IBM PowerLinux Linux installation quick start without a graphics card video. In this video, I ll show you how to prepare an unmanaged PowerLinux server to install Linux using a serial console emulator. An unmanaged server does not use system management interfaces like HMC or IVM. You'll need a serial console emulation environment consisting of a Linux or Windows PC, a serial to RJ45 cable, a serial console emulator, and a VNC client. The VNC client is important because Linux installers sometimes differentiate between a text-mode install and a graphics-mode install, and the graphics-mode install typically results in the installation of a more robust set of packages. You'll also need power cables, an Ethernet cable, and the Linux installation media. Installing Linux on Power Systems servers 5

12 This video illustrates installing Linux on an 8246-L2C IBM PowerLinux 7R2 server using the PuTTY terminal emulator and the RealVNC VNC client on a PC running Windows. You'll be following these steps. The video redisplays the list of steps along the way. To install the PowerLinux server in a rack, see the information located in the Systems Hardware Information Center. When installed in the rack, the front of the server looks like this. The back of the server looks like this. Note the orange power supply shipping bracket, which you must remove before supplying power to the server. If the PowerLinux server contains any graphics cards, you must remove them to prevent the Linux installer from possibly attempting to switch the console from the serial console to a graphics monitor. Verify that the power cables and supplies match the plug and voltage requirements of the server. If you have not already done so, remove the power supply shipping brackets. Install the power cables in the back of the server by first pushing in the power modules. Then, plug the cables into the power modules. Connect the serial to RJ45 cable. The serial end plugs into the PC. The RJ45 end plugs into the S1 port on the back of the server. Attach a network cable from the network router with a DHCP server to the eth0 port of the network interface card on the back of the server, which is typically the top-most port. Now it's time to set up the terminal emulator for the console. First, verify that the green power LED on the control panel is flashing. Configure the serial console emulator application for a speed of 19,200 bits per second, with 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity. If the application is running on Windows, specify the COM port associated with the serial port of the PC, which is most likely COM1. Finally, start the console. Configure the Flexible Service Processor, or FSP, for basic information like date and time, admin password, and how to boot when powering on the server. If you don't yet see the FSP login prompt, press Enter. The default FSP User ID is admin, spelled a-d-m-i-n. The default password depends on how you ordered your server. If you ordered your server preloaded, the admin password is passw0rd, spelled p-a-s-s-w-0-r-d. If you ordered it without a preload, the admin password is admin, spelled a-d-m-i-n. In all cases, the letters in the password are all lowercase. You're then prompted for the User ID whose password you must change. Enter admin, enter the current admin password, and enter the new admin password twice. Be sure you're paying attention to the password you're entering, and write it down immediately. Once the new password is established, press Enter to continue. You are prompted for the number of columns and lines the FSP should consider your console having. The defaults are 80 columns and 24 lines. Supplying these brings you to the main menu, which shows your system name, version, and primary FSP task options. On the main menu, select option 4 to view and change the system configuration. 6 Linux: Installing Linux on Power Systems servers

13 On the system configuration menu, select option 3 to configure system date and time. On the Time of Day menu, select either option to change them from their current values. If you're satisfied with the current values, select option 98 to return to the System Configuration menu. From the System Configuration menu, select option 98 to return to the main menu. To install an operating system, you must configure the FSP to boot your server to the firmware services that will give you the ability to specify a boot device and kernel boot options. On the Main Menu, select option 1 to select Power/Restart Control. On the Power/Restart Control menu, select option 1 to select Power On/Off System. On the Power On/Off System menu, the AIX/Linux partition boot setting, which is option 4, should have a value of boot to SMS menu. If it doesn't, select option 4 to change it. On the AIX/Linux partition mode boot menu, select option 3 to change this setting to boot to SMS menu. You are returned to the Power On/Off System menu. Now it's time to power on the server from the FSP. Continuing on the Power On/Off System menu, select option 8 to power on your server. The FSP tells you that the system is powering on, and that you should press Enter to continue. You are returned to the Power On/Off System menu. After a few moments, you are automatically logged out of the FSP as the server is being powered on. Signs that the system is powering on include reference codes appearing in the console and on the control panel display, the sound of the cooling fans operating, and the green power LED on the control panel transitioning from flashing green to solid green. Eventually, you are prompted to select your console going forward. Press the recommended key to continue using the serial console you've been using. The server firmware displays the Language Selection Menu. Unless you want to change the default current language, select option 2 to continue boot. Assuming you want to accept the printed license agreement provided with the server, select option 1 to accept it. Your server boots. Press the 1 key during the bootup screen to enter the SMS menus. On the Language Selection Menu, change the language if you desire, or select option 2 to continue. Type the FSP admin password that you set earlier, and press Enter. This brings you to the SMS Main Menu. Insert the Linux installation media into the DVD tray on the front of the server. If the tray eject button does not eject the tray, push a paper clip into the hole in the front of the tray to eject it manually. Now you're ready to set up to boot the Linux distribution installer for a VNC graphical install. On the Main Menu, select option 5 to select boot options. On the Multiboot menu, select option 1 to select install/boot device. Installing Linux on Power Systems servers 7

14 On the Select Device Type menu, select option 7 to list all devices. If you don't see the CD-ROM device in the list, press the N key to display the next page in the list. Continue to press the N key until you see the CD-ROM device. When you see the CD-ROM device in the list, type its corresponding device number, and press Enter to select it. On the Select Task menu, select option 2 to select a normal mode boot. Finally, select option 1 to confirm that you want to exit SMS and boot the server. Don't enter the SMS menus as you did previously. Allow the boot to proceed until you see the installer welcome screen and boot prompt. If you're installing Red Hat, you may encounter an issue where the installer requires more memory than the firmware has allocated to the installer. To boot the Red Hat installer, type linux vnc=1 and press Enter. The memory issue appears in the form of the kernel failing to load, and your being presented with an Open Firmware prompt, which looks like a zero and a right angle bracket. If you see this, proceed as follows. Type printenv real-base and press Enter to display the value of the real-base open firmware environment variable value. The value is likely a 2 followed by six zeros. Change the value by typing setenv real-base c followed by five zeros, and press Enter. Finally, type reset-all and press Enter. This instructs Open Firmware to reboot the server. If you performed the workaround while installing Red Hat, or you were installing SuSE and thus did not need the workaround, you're now ready to proceed with the installation as usual. At the boot prompt, type linux vnc=1 for Red Hat, or install vnc=1 vncpassword=your-password for SuSE, and press Enter. This video shows Red Hat. The Linux kernel boots, and with it the initial stages of the installer, which asks you which networking device to use. Having plugged the network cable into the top port of the network interface device earlier, select the eth0 device. There is sometimes a mismatch between the menu items and where the cursor rests in the menu. The installer probably expected a larger console window. Experiment with the tab key to get a feel for where the first device in the list actually is before proceeding. After finding the eth0 device, press the space key to select it. Then, press the tab key until it is on or near the OK button in the menu, and press the space key to continue. 8 Linux: Installing Linux on Power Systems servers

15 You can see how the console might display menu items and buttons as being slightly displaced from where they are actually selected. The installer obtains networking information from the router DHCP server, and prompts for the option to test the media before installation. This video skips that test. Eventually, the installer displays the hostname and port information you need to connect your VNC client to the installer's VNC server. Connect the VNC client to the host and port displayed by the installer. Don't forget the port number, or the colon character between the hostname and the port number. You're now ready to complete the Linux installation by following the installer instructions displayed in the VNC client. In this video, the installer screens captured were larger than the screen capture size, and not resizeable, so the video shows scrollbars being used to navigate the installer screens in a way that you won't have to. You're prompted for basic information like this whether this is a fresh install, the server short hostname, the timezone, and the root password. Eventually, you get to the point where the rest of the installation is automatic, the installation completes, and you can log in to Linux as root on your server.
