When you purchase a Dell server you can purchase the Open Manage software, so they ship you media. OpenManage is the software that installs the maintenance partition and the automated install of the operating system as well as firmware updates. However if you did not get media with your server or want the latest version of software; you might run into a problem if you download the software with Internet Explorer and never read the instructions.

If you are looking for the latest OpenManage software for you servers, the first step is to go to http://support.dell.com and click on “Drivers and Downloads”. Next you will be prompted for the service tag or model of you unit you need to download Open Manage for. You will want to select “Systems Management” and search for “DVD ISO – Dell Systems Management Tools and Documentation”. You will want to select “More Download Options” from the right hand side. This selection might prompt you for the service tag since the OpenManage is model specific; so have the service tag handy.

  • Here you will find DVD ISO Image files; OM6.2.0SMTDA00.iso.001 and OM6.2.0SMTDA00.iso.002. These files are not ISO files they are actually half of the ISO file. So if you burn the first file you will boot up and be functional until you get to the “Precopy Preparation” where you will hang around 15% or 17%.
  • Motherboard Intel. Windows 10 64 bit. January 18th, 01:39 GMT. Intel NUC11PAHi7 NUC Kit Serial IO Driver 30.100.2031 for Windows 10 64-bit 2.

Here you will find DVD ISO Image files; OM_6.2.0_SMTD_A00.iso.001 and OM_6.2.0_SMTD_A00.iso.002. These files are not ISO files they are actually half of the ISO file. So if you burn the first file you will boot up and be functional until you get to the “Precopy Preparation” where you will hang around 15% or 17%.

We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us.

In order to fix the problem of OpenManage hanging at the “Precopy Preparation” stage: download both the files 001 and 002. Place them in a folder where you will concatenate them into one file. This process you will find under the instructions, however it is not documented anywhere else on the download page. So you think there are two separate ISO files and burn them only to find the first boots and hangs.

Dell does this to address a browser limitation around downloading large files (see Microsoft KB article 298618: You cannot download files that are 2 GB or larger – http://support.microsoft.com/kb/298618). Dell Systems Management Tools and Documentation DVD is no longer available as a single ISO for web download.

Process:

1. Download the two ISO file segments to an empty folder.
2. Run the command to concatenate them into one file.

3. Burn the OM_620_SMTD_A00.iso file to DVD.

If you are running Linux the command is:

  • Introduction

  • Here we will be looking at how to install the OpenFiler server from a downloaded ISO image from the Openfiler site. Remember, that OpenFiler is OpenSource, but they do have support options availble for purchase, including and Administrators guide as well.

    The document on their website is very good on how to install Openfiler. What I have done here, is copied a lot of the text and picutres from their site and pasted here. Then, I edited for install on a VMware server, inlcuding some options that you may need to take into account when installing. I made some comments as well, on changes that I made during the install, due to either sizes of disks, or other small tweaks.

    This document describes the process of installing Openfiler using the default graphical installation interface. If you experience any problems with the graphical install track, such as a garbled screen due to the installer not being able to auto-detect your graphics hardware, please try a text-based install. The text-based install track is described here.

    Total time for installation is about 15 – 20 minutes including software installation to disk.

This install will view pictures of a install, that would be different from how we install our basic virtual machines in house. For example, we give our /sda drive at least a 10GB partition at a minimum, and either the 512MB or 1024MB of ram.

    Also, it may be a good idea to creat your drive space now, on what you are going to be using for your NAS storage. In the next blogs after this, I will be commenting on a 100GB VMDK that was created for useage on Openfiler as NAS storage. When installing Openfiler, be aware that if you have a sda and a sdb drive availble for space, that you leave the sdb alone, without partitioning, and without formatting the drive. The Openfiler interface is where you should be carving out your physical (or vmdk) disks into volumes and formatting them properly.

    Installation

    The installation process is described with screenshots for illustrative purposes. If you are unable to proceed at any point with the installation process or you make a mistake, use the Back button to return to previous points in the installation process. Any errors or intractable problems with the installation process should be reported either to the Openfiler Users mailing list or, alternatively, if you feel you have found a bug please use the bug tracking system. If you report a bug, be sure to enter a valid email address so that you can keep track of any updates to it right up to resolution. You *must* first register with the bug tracker in order to be able to post a new bug.

    Starting the Installation

    On a VMware ESXi server, Create your VMware server by walking though the wizrd, in Custom mode. For mine, I selected the Linux->Other 32 bit version. I gave it a 10GB and a 100GB hard drive (for examples in the next blogs) and 512MB of ram.

    Don’t forget, to attach your downloaded ISO image to the CDROM drive, and enable at power on.

    After the system POSTs, the installer boot prompt will come up. At this point, just hit the Enter key to proceed.

    After a few moments, the first screen of the installer will be presented. If at this point your screen happens to be garbled, it is likely that the installer has been unable to automatically detect your graphics subsystem hardware. You may restart the installation process in text-mode and proceed accordingly in that case. The first screen of the installer is depicted below. The next step is to click on the Next button to proceed with the installation.

    Keyboard Selection

    This screen deals with keyboard layout selection. Use the scroll bar on the right to scroll up and down and select your desired keyboard layout from the list. Once you are satisfied with your selection, click the Next button to proceed.

    Disk Partitioning Setup

    Next comes the disk partitioning. You must select manual disk partitioning as it ensures you will end up with a bootable system and with the correct partitioning scheme. Openfiler does not support automatic partitioning and you will be unable to configure data storage disks in the Openfiler graphical user interface if you select automatic partitioning. Click the Next button once you have selected the correct radiobutton option.

    Disk Setup

    On the disk setup screen, if you have any existing partitions on the system, please delete them. DO NOT DELETE ANY EXISTING OPENFILER DATA PARTITIONS UNLESS YOU NO LONGER REQUIRE THE DATA ON THEM. Download word free trial. To delete a partition, highlight it in the list of partitions and click the Delete button. You should now have a clean disk on which to create your partitions.

    You need to create three partitions on the system in order to proceed with the installation:

“/boot” – this is where the kernel will reside and the system will boot from

“swap” – this is the swap partition for memory swapping to disk

“/”– this is the system root partition where all system applications and libraries will be installed

    Create /boot Partition

    Proceed by creating a boot partition. Click on the New button. You will be presented with a form with several fields and checkboxes. Enter the partition mount path “/boot” and the select the disk on with to create the partition. In the illustrated example, this disk is hda (the first IDE hard disk). Your setup will very likely be different as you may have several disks of different types. You should make sure that only the first disk is checked and no others. If you are installing on a SCSI-only system, this disk will be designated sda. If you are installing on a system that has both IDE and SCSI disks, please select hda if you intend to use the IDE disk as your boot drive.

    The following is a list of all entries required to create the boot partition:

  • Mount Point: /boot
  • Filesystem Type: ext3
  • Allowable Drives: select one disk only. This should be the first IDE (hda) or first SCSI disk (sda)
  • Size(MB): 100 (this is the size in Megabytes, allocate 100MB by entering “100”)
  • Additional Size Options: select Fixed Size radiobutton from the options.
  • Force to be a primary partition: checked (select this checkbox to force the partition to be created as a primary partition)
  • After configuration, your settings should resemble the following illustration:

    Once you are satisfied with your entries, click the OK button to create the partition.

    NOTE: Dont’ forget! If you created your seperate VMDK that you will be using as your NAS storage (for example 100 GB like my demonstrations), then you need to be sure that you have not added any of that physical drive your your /, boot or swap partitions! In future blogs, I will show you how to edit your VMDK that you will be using as your shared storage drive. More than likey, it will come up as “sdb” in your windows of “Allowable Drives:”.

    Create / (root) Partition

    Proceed by creating a root partition. Click on the New button. You will be presented with the same form as previously when creating the boot partition. The details are identical to what was entered for the /boot partition except this time the Mount Point: should be “/” and the Size(MB): should be 2048MB or at a minimum 1024MB. Please notice here, that if you have your drive selected that you will be using for your NAS storage, be sure to unselect it (more than likely, will be sdb, or sdc…and so on). We will be carving our volume(S) and formatting the space by using the web GUI instead.

    Once you are satisfied with your entries, click the OK button to proceed.

    Create Swap Partition

    Proceed by creating a swap partition. Click on the New button. You will be presented with the same form as previously when creating the boot and root partitions. The details are identical to what was entered for the boot partition except this time the Mount Point: should swap. Use the drop down list to select a swap partition type. The Size(MB): of the partition should be at least 1024MB and need not exceed 2048MB. DO NOT place your swap space on the physical drive where you will be using your NAS storage. When we format that drive and partition, your swap space will be gone!

    Once you are satisfied with your entries, proceed by clicking the OK button to create the partition. You should now have a set of partitions ready for the Openfiler Operating System image to install to. Your disk partition scheme should resemble the following:

    You have now completed the partitioning tasks of the installation process and should click Next to proceed to the next step.

    Network Configuration

    In this section you will configure network devices, system hostname and DNS parameters. You will need to configure at least one network interface card in order to access the Openfiler web interface and to serve data to clients on a network. In the unlikely event that you will be using DHCP to configure the network address, you can simply click Next and proceed to the next stage of the installation process.

    If on the other hand you wish to define a specific IP address and hostname, click the Edit button at the top right corner of the screen in the Network Devices section. Network interface devices are designated ethX where X is a number starting at 0. The first network interface device is therefore eth0. If you have more than one network interface device, they will all be listed in the Network Devices section.

    When you click the Edit button, a new form will popup for you to configure the network device in question. As you do not wish to use DHCP for this interface, uncheck the Configure Using DHCP checkbox. This will then allow you to enter a network IP address and Netmask in the appropriate form fields. Enter your desired settings and click OK to proceed.

    Once you have configured a network IP address, you may now enter a hostname for the system. The default hostname localhost.localdomain is not suitable and you will need to enter a proper hostname for the system. This will be used later when you configure the system to participate on your network either as an Active Directory / Windows NT PDC client or as an LDAP domain member server. You will also, at this point, need to configure gateway IP address and DNS server IP addresses. To complete this task you will need the following information:

    Hostname

    Gateway Address

    DNS Servers (Primary, secondary, Tertiary)

    The following illustration shows an example where a hostname has been assigned, and gateway IP, primary and secondary DNS information has also been entered.

    Once you are satisfied with your entries, please proceed by clicking the Next button.

    Time Zone Selection

    Set the default system time zone. You can achieve this by following the instructions on the left side of the screen. If your system BIOS has been configured to use UTC, check the UTC checkbox at the bottom of the screen and click Next to proceed.

    Set Root Password

    You need to configure a root password for the system. The root password is the superuser administrator password. With the root account, you can log into the system to perform any administrative tasks that are not offered via the web interface. Select a suitable password and enter it twice in the provided textboxes. When you are satisfied with your entries, click Next to proceed with the installation process.

    NB: the root password is meant for logging into the console of the Openfiler server. The default username and password for the Openfiler web management GUI are: “openfiler” and “password” respectively.

    About To Install

    This screen informs you that installation configuration has been completed and the installer is awaiting your input to start the installation process which will format disks, copy data to the system and configure system parameters such as setting up the boot loader and adding system users. Click Next if you are satisfied with the entries you have made in the previous screens.

    Note

    You cannot go back to previous screens once you have gone past this point. The installer will erase any data on the partitions you defined in the partitioning section.

    Installation

    Once you have clicked Next in the preceding section, the installer will begin the installation process. The following screenshots depict what happens at this point.

    Installation Complete

    Once the installation has completed, you will be presented with a congratulatory message. At this point you simply need to click the Reboot button to finish the installer and boot into the installed Openfiler system.

    Note

    After you click Reboot, be sure to remove the iso image from your Virtual Machine, we we dont’ boot back into the installation mode.

    Conclusion

    In my next blog, I will go through how to access, and configure your NFS storage that you want to make as NAS datastore available to your VMware ESXi servers. Be sure that you remember your IP address or DNS name that you have given this server you just created.

    For configuration, go to my next blog -> A Por Man’s DR with ESXi 4.1 – Part 2 Openfiler Config.

    You can learn how to manage the Openfiler system by browsing the administrator guide online which can be found here.
