For new installs, before you install Novell Business Continuity Clustering, download and copy the software to a directory on your workstation. To download Novell Business Continuity Clustering 1.2.1 for OES 2 SP2 Linux, contact Novell Support.
The Business Continuity Clustering installation program and software is downloaded as an ISO image. There are a few installation options for using the ISO image on each Linux server that will be part of the business continuity cluster:
Create a CD from the ISO, mount the CD on the server, and add the CD as a local installation source.
Copy the ISO to the server and add the ISO as a local installation source.
Copy the ISO file to a location where it can be used for an HTTP installation source.
To use one of these package installation methods, follow the instructions in Section 4.4, Installing and Configuring the Novell Business Continuity Clustering Software.
You can also follow the instructions in Section 4.5, Using a YaST Auto-Configuration File to Install and Configure Business Continuity Clustering Software to install from the network without using a CD or copying the ISO to each server.
