Contributors netapp-lhalbert

You must carefully review the configuration information you have entered to ensure that the installation completes successfully.

  1. View the Summary page.

  2. Verify that all of the grid configuration information is correct. Use the Modify links on the Summary page to go back and correct any errors.

  3. Click Install.

    Note If a node is configured to use the Client Network, the default gateway for that node switches from the Grid Network to the Client Network when you click Install. If you lose connectivity, you must ensure that you are accessing the primary Admin Node through an accessible subnet. See Networking guidelines for details.
  4. Click Download Recovery Package.

    When the installation progresses to the point where the grid topology is defined, you are prompted to download the Recovery Package file (.zip), and confirm that you can successfully access the contents of this file. You must download the Recovery Package file so that you can recover the StorageGRID system if one or more grid nodes fail. The installation continues in the background, but you cannot complete the installation and access the StorageGRID system until you download and verify this file.

  5. Verify that you can extract the contents of the .zip file, and then save it in two safe, secure, and separate locations.

    Important The Recovery Package file must be secured because it contains encryption keys and passwords that can be used to obtain data from the StorageGRID system.
  6. Select the I have successfully downloaded and verified the Recovery Package file check box, and click Next.
