This section provides instructions for installing the Linux operating system (OS) on a Sun Blade X6275 M2 server module.
The Sun Blade X6275 M2 server module consists of two nodes, each with its own service processor (SP), and each capable of supporting its own operating system. These nodes are fully independent of each other, and must be managed as if they were separate servers. Therefore, for each server module, you must perform a separate operating system installation on each node.
The Sun Blade X6275 M2 supports multiple versions of the Linux OS. The minimum supported versions are:
Oracle Linux 5.5 64-bit
Red Hat Linux (RHEL) 5.5 64-bit
SLES 10 SP3 64-bit and SLES 11 SP1 64-bit
For the latest list of supported operating systems, see http://www.oracle.com/goto/x6275m2.
