    Thumbs up Linux Installation on HP BL 460 C Blade Server.


    Hi All,

    Is there any chance That CentOS or any other Linux Servers can be installed on HP BL 460C Blade Server. If YES.. any Installation Guide for that.

    I installed RHEL 5.5 on a BL460 in June. I don't recall there being anything unusual about the install. What problems are you having?

    The CentOS 5.2 installation guide is at Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2

    It's actually the Red Hat publication, posted under the OPL. That appears to be their most recent EL5 install guide, but it should be applicable to 5.5.

    It's been a while since I've needed an installation guide for CentOS/RHEL. I don't think CentOS differentiates server from desktop, all the Gnome, etc., packages are there in the basic distribution.

    The most recent version of RHEL 5.x systems and clones is 5.7, which CentOS and Scientific Linux (the two most popular RHEL clones) both support. There should not be any problems installing that on an HP blade machine.

    Actually, my fully updated RHEL5 systems now identify as 5.8. Last time I downloaded install ISOs, those were at 5.5, which is why I mentioned that rev.

    Ok - moving target... What was last week 5.7 may be 5.8 this week...

    Myself, I am using 6.0, with updated kernel to what 6.1 is using.
