About This Guide

This guide describes how to install AWS Elemental Delta software for the first time. These are the reference documents for the various types of installation:

Installation type Description
Node-locked licenses on AWS Elemental Appliance You received AWS Elemental Appliance edition hardware, which comes with the appropriate licenses already installed. To complete setup of each node, see the getting started guide that came in your product box or Cabling Setup.
Node-locked licenses on hardware You're installing unique licenses for each piece of physical, qualified hardware that's running AWS Elemental software.

See Installing AWS Elemental Delta Node-locked Licenses on Qualified Hardware.

Node-locked licenses on a virtual machine (VM) You're installing unique licenses for each VM guest that's running AWS Elemental software.

See Installing AWS Elemental Delta Node-locked Licenses on a Virtual Machine (VM).

All of these scenarios get you through phase 1 of the installation process: the preconfigured operating system is installed; the software is installed; eth0 is configured, and licenses are installed. Phase 2 is configuration of the software; it is addressed in the AWS Elemental Delta version 2.3 Configuration Guide.
