Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Installation Guide for the IBM

The eServer Open Power, p5, and i5 systems introduce many options for partitioning, virtual or native devices, and consoles. All three versions of the system use the same kernel and have many of the same options available, depending on the system configuration.If you are using a non-partitioned Open Power or p5 system, you do not need any pre-installation setup. For systems using the HVSI serial console, hook up your console to the T2 serial port.If using a partitioned system, whether Open Power, p5, or i5, the steps to create the partition and start the installation are largely the same. You should create the partition at the HMC and assign some CPU and memory resources, as well as SCSI and Ethernet resources, which can be either virtual or native.The HMC create partition wizard steps you through the creation.For more information on creating the partition, refer to IBM’s Info center article on Configuring Linux logical partitions available online at: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/eserver/v1r2s/en_US/index.htm?info/iphbi/iphbiconfig.htm Note that due to the length of this URL, it has been broken into two lines.If you are using virtual SCSI resources, rather than native SCSI, you must configure a ’link’ to the virtual SCSI serving partition, and then configure the virtual SCSI serving partition itself. You create a ’link’ between the virtual SCSI client and server slots using the HMC. You can configure a virtual SCSI server on either AIX or i5/OS, depending on which model and options you have.For more information on these topics, refer to IBM’s Info center article, Creating a Linux logical partition using i5/OS virtual I/O resources available online at: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/eserver/v1r2s/en_US/index.htm?info/iphbl/iphblioserverpartition.htm Note that due to the length of this URL, it has been broken into two lines. Note Additional Information on virtualization eServer i5 and p5 can be found in the RedbooksSG24-6388-00 and SG24-7940-00, Linux on IBM eServer i5 Implementation Guide and Introduction to Advanced POWER Virtualization on IBM eServer p5 Servers. These can be accessed fromhttp://www.redbooks.ibm.com/ and searching on the book number. Once you have your system configured, you need to Activate from the HMC or power it on. Depending on what type of install you are doing, you may need to configure SMS to correctly boot the system into the installation program. 1.3. Preparation for iSeries The installation process assumes basic familiarity with the IBM iSeries platform and makes reference to IBM’s Configuring Linux in a Guest Partition. In general, this section assumes that you have read the Configuring Linux in a Guest Partition document(http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/iseries/v5r2/ic2924/info/rzalm/rzalmlinuxkickoff.htm) in its entirety. Tip Additional information on the iSeries can be found online at: http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/eserver/iseries/linux/ To prepare your iSeries system for installation, follow the instructions in the Planning to run Linux on a logical partition and Creating a logical partition to run Linux sections of the Configuring Linux in a Guest Partition document. Consult your OS/400 command documentation for information on configuring the OS/400 facilities(http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/iseries/v5r2/ic2924/info/rbam6/rbam6clmain.htm).
