Before you install the HCP software

Installing an HCP system

Part Number

Before you install the HCP software:

  • Complete the HCP Software Installation Information so the information you need for the HCP software installation is readily available.
  • Read the HCP release notes for any last minute installation information.
  • Ensure that the Appliance OS is installed on each node in the system and that each node is running.
  • For SAIN systems with spindown storage, ensure that all spindown volumes allocated to the HCP system are spun up.
  • If you configured the Appliance OS for link aggregation, ensure that the front-end Ethernet switch is already configured for 802.3ad bonding.
    Note: If this is the first time you’re installing an HCP system, make sure to read HCP Setup program before you begin the operations.
