Install the LifeKeeper Single Server Protection software on each server in the LifeKeeper Single Server Protection configuration.
Packages that LifeKeeper is dependent on are installed automatically because the LifeKeeper installation setup script uses package manager tools (yum or zypper) to ensure installation of all dependent packages.
The LifeKeeper Single Server Protection image file (lkssp.img) provides a set of installation scripts designed to perform the user interactive system setup tasks that are necessary when installing LKSSP on your system (see Interactive Mode for more information). A non-user interactive install can be performed as well (see Non-interactive Mode for more information).
The LifeKeeper Single Server Protection installation process is broken down into 3 steps:
- Selection (user interactive only)
- Installation and Configuration
The first step of the process is the Collection phase and is responsible for collecting information about the system, such as the Linux distribution being used, to ensure the system meets the requirements for a successful install. Step 2 of the process is the Selection phase and is responsible for interacting with the user via a menu based selection process to determine what LKSSP packages to install and the configurations required to support those selections. The third and final step is the Installation and Configuration phase. This step is responsible for installing the LKSSP Core Package and any Optional Recovery Software, and configuring the system for LKSSP. This step also installs any required OS supporting packages that are not already on the system.
A licensing utilities package is also installed providing utilities for obtaining and displaying the Host ID or Entitlement ID of your server. Host IDs and/or Entitlement IDs are used to obtain valid licenses for running LKSSP.
