Verify repository configuration
The procedures for configuring Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS repositories are site specific. You can use the
pre_install_check.sh script included in the installation package to verify the configuration of your operating system. If your system is connected to the internet, you automatically receive instructions for setting up the Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS repositories.
# sudo ./pre_install_check.sh
Install Unified Manager
Unified Manager uses the
yum utility to install the software and any dependent software. Because there are varying images of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS, the packages installed depend on the software present in the images. The
yum utility determines the dependent software packages for installation. If you need more information on the dependent software packages, see the Linux software and installation requirements.
To install Unified Manager, run the following command, either as the root user or using
sudo, from the directory where the installation file was unzipped:
# yum install netapp-um<version>.x86_64.rpm
% sudo yum install netapp-um<version>.x86_64.rpm
At the end of the installation, the information to connect to the Unified Manager web UI is displayed. If you are unable to connect to the web UI, refer to the
README file packaged with the software for more information about port 443 restrictions.
