This chapter guides you through the initial hardware and software installation of eXpressWare. This means that no Dolphin software is installed on the Cluster Nodes or the Cluster Management Node prior to these instructions. To update an existing installation, please refer to Chapter 5, Update Installation.
The recommended installation procedure, which is described in this chapter, uses the Self-Installing Archive (SIA) distribution of the Dolphin eXpressWare software stack which can be used for all Linux distributions that support the RPM/DEB package formats. Installation on other Linux platforms is covered in Chapter 6, Manual Installation.
