ESM 6.91 HA install sanity check

Hello, I am running the ESM HA first boot wizard and it is asking me for the metadata volume parameters.  The install guide indicates that if the ESM's are appliances the metadata volume is already created, but it does not tell me what the volume is.

So I'm stuck.  I believe whatever I specify will get wiped as part of the install, so I want to be 100% clear on this part.

Any help appreciated.....

edit - my guess is that the  partition /dev/sda6 - which appears to be sized properly @ 72 M (at least according to the user guide / formula) - is the metadata target.

Can anybody from HP confirm if this is correct...?

  • Hi Randy,

    I just got a reply from one of our backline engineers:

    "If this is brand new following the guide should work, worst case, (if something goes wrong) factory restore should not be too painful."

    Also, from reading the guide, it looks like you should be able to "skip" providing the info? Hopefully this will help get you going. Please let me know if you really want to still find out the name of the volume so we can pursue in finding it out.

    If this is NOT a brand new install, then please let me know the background so we can give you the proper steps to move on.

    Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

    Warm regards,

    Erdy
