Start by recording the following items on the Node Details page.


Under installation type choose Custom, also choose to customize the partitioning.

When you arrive at the Disk Partioning screen remove all current declarations and use the following layout (if virtual node, you can skip the devices in italics):

Device

Type

Format

Size(MB)

boot

/boot

ext3

(./)

Volume Group vgroot

? (remaining)

lvswap

swap

(./)

1068

lvhome

/home

ext3

(./)

512

lvoracle

/usr/lib/oracle

ext3

(./)

4096

lvtmp

/tmp

(./)

lvroot

/

(./)

3072

Note: After creating the /boot device, make the size of vgroot equal to the remainder of the disk capacity.



Use the default DHCP setting for the intial setup and testing phase of the node setup. This will be changed to the node specific info before shipping the node.

Set the hostname manually to the nodename. Example: densitron.globalnetwatch.com
