Creating a Bootable DVD with Software Defined Storage (SDS) ISO Image

You must create a bootable DVD with the Software Defined Storage (SDS) image for Red Hat 7.x to boot the server.

Before You Begin

Ensure that you have a bare metal server or a virtual machine server with pre-installed Red Hat 7.x on it to create the SDS image.

Procedure

  1. If you have a bare metal server, then install the Red Hat 7.x operating system and ensure that you select the Infrastructure System module.
  2. Install the following RPM dependencies:

    efibootmgr
    genisoimage
    grub2-efi
    grub2-tools
    libefivar0
    libusal
    mtools
    syslinux
    userspace-rcu
    psmisc

  3. Install the MediaAgent and the Storage Pool in the decoupled mode.

    For more information, see Installing Commvault Locally on UNIX, Linux, and Macintosh Computers Using the Installation Package.

  4. Attach the Red Hat 7.x ISO/DVD to the server where you have the operating system, MediaAgent and Storage Pool installed.
  5. On the DVD, navigate to the /opt/commvault/MediaAgent and run the following script:

    ./createcd.sh /opt/commvault/MediaAgent

  6. Verify that the dvd.iso is created under the /tmp directory.
  7. Follow the directions from Step 3 onwards to boot the server with the newly created bootable DVD. See, Automatic Configuration Method.
