Installing the HCP software

Installing an HCP system

Part Number

After installing the Appliance OS on every node in an HCP system, you can install the HCP software. This chapter describes the program you use to install the software and contains installation instructions.

Important: This chapter assumes that the OS is installed and healthy on each node in the system.
  • Installing the HCP software erases everything on the HCP nodes except the OS. Before installing, be very sure you’re supposed to be doing a fresh installation and not an upgrade.
  • The HCP software installation program also gives access to the procedures for upgrading and adding nodes and storage to an HCP system. These procedures are reserved for authorized HCP service providers. Do NOT try to perform them yourself. Performing these procedures incorrectly carries the risk of destroying data in the repository or leaving the system inoperable.
