To execute the HCP software installation:

  1. From the New Install Menu, enter x.
  2. In response to the prompt about data-in-flight encryption, take one of these actions:
    • If data-in-flight encryption is configured correctly:
      1. Enter y or yes.
      2. In response to the confirming prompt enter y or yes to confirm your entry or n or no to try again.

        When you enter y or yes, the wizard displays the system configuration.

    • If data-in-flight encryption is not configured correctly:
      1. Enter n or no.
      2. In response to the confirming prompt enter y or yes to confirm your entry or n or no to try again.

        When you enter y or yes, the wizard returns to the New Install Menu, from which you can correct the configuration.

  3. Review the configuration.
  4. Take one of these actions:
    • If the configuration is correct:
      1. Enter y or yes.
      2. In response to the confirming prompt, enter y or yes to confirm your entry or n or no to try again.

        When you enter y or yes, HCP Setup performs a set of installation prechecks and, if they are successful, installs the HCP software on all nodes in the system. This can take from several minutes to several hours, depending on the size of the logical volumes.

      Note: As part of the precheck process, the installation program verifies whether each node has more than the minimum amount of RAM (32 GB). If one or more nodes have less than 32 GB of RAM, the installation program prompts you to enter y or yes to continue the installation, or enter n or no to cancel the installation and return to the HCP 9.0 Configuration Menu.

      When the installation is complete, HCP Setup logs you out and restarts the nodes. The console then displays the login prompt.

      If HCP Setup exits at any time before the installation processing is complete, make a note of all error messages and then contact your authorized HCP service provider for help.

    • If the configuration is not correct:
      1. Enter n or no.
      2. In response to the confirming prompt, enter y or yes to confirm your entry or n or no to try again.

        When you enter y or yes, the wizard returns to the New Install Menu, from which you can correct the configuration.
