VNX Installation Guides


  • Modern Linux distribution (Ubuntu 14.04 or newer recommended)
  • Processor with virtualization support (only needed if you use KVM virtual machines; not needed if you only use User-Mode-Linux or dynamips). You can check whether your processor has support for virtualization extensions using:
    • kvm-ok command if available in your system:
    • # kvm-ok
      INFO: Your CPU supports KVM extensions
      INFO: /dev/kvm exists
      KVM acceleration can be used
    • Manually, executing the following command:
    • egrep '(vmx|svm)' --color=always /proc/cpuinfo

      If you see the word vmx (for Intel processors) or svm (for AMD processors) in red, your processor has virtualization support.

      IMPORTANT: Be aware that virtualization extensions are controled from the BIOS. Even if you see the vmx/svm flag you will have to access your BIOS setup and check that virtualization support is enabled. If you get the following error message:

      FATAL: Error inserting kvm_intel (...): Operation not supported

      it probably means that virtualization support is disabled in your BIOS setup.

  • 2 Gb of Memory
  • 10 Gb of disk (depends mainly on the number of root-file-systems used)
