I can't see any lists for compatibility of bare-metal vADC.

Is this only Hardware compatible with bare-metal vADC?

Frequent Contributor

@Jayji: Brocade supports installation of vTM on Bare metal in two format:

1) As a software installation on Linux: Here you install Linux on your server (Bare Metal or virtual), then, using the vTM installer for Linux, (A TGZ tarball), you unpack the tarball and run the installation script. In this format, you are responsible for configuration if the Linux operating system and for OS patching etc.

 

2) As a "Bare Metal Install Image", which the post above is talking about. Here, if you have the servers that are certified on the Hardware Compitibility List, we provide an installation image that includes the underlying OS as an iso that can be used to install via CDROM, USB or PXE boot. In this format, Brocade gives you the tools to confiure the needed elements such as Network interfaces, and OS patches are provided as part of the vTM software updates.

 

Does this explaing it better?

Hi,

I try to mount the Brocade VTM version 17 on HP ProLiant DL380.
I'm facing some issues.
After the Server scanning for the partitioner, the screen display "No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu".
The server we configure as raid 1 and will not to do the partition.

 

Can anyone guide me on this ?

Thank you so much.
