August 28, 2008 Leave a comment
Today I’ve done installing Solaris 10 u5 x86 DVD on IBM BladeCenter using HS21 Blade server.
There is nothing special about the installation. For 1st time u must follow the doc from IBM site here. The document basically for Solaris 8/07, but how to prepare the HS21 is the same.
Using Solaris 10 u5 u don’t need anything to patch. Its all coverup in the DVD.
After follow the document, u can install, then everything is up and running.
btw…here’s the hardware spec i used :
Blade Machine Type 8853C1A
Bios version 1.05
Harddisk HP 146GB SAS 10K, type DG146ABAB4
Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) 1.04
for Indonesian user u can follow tutorial how to install Solaris 10 in here.
