Installing AWS Elemental Live Node-locked Licenses on Qualified Hardware

This section is for IT administrators who perform the first-time installation of AWS Elemental Live software on a hardware unit that is considered qualified hardware.

For information on hardware that AWS Elemental has qualified, contact your AWS Elemental Sales representative or contact AWS Elemental Support through your company’s Private Space in AWS Elemental User Community.

Prerequisite Knowledge

It is assumed that you know how to:

  • Log in to the AWS Elemental machine over Secure Shell (SSH) in order to run install commands via the command line interface.

  • Use Windows Share (on a Windows computer), Samba (on a Mac workstation), or a utility such as SCP (on a Linux workstation) to move files.

  • Access recently downloaded files on your workstation.

The procedure for installing any version of AWS Elemental Live is the same; only the version number in the file name changes. In this procedure, we show how to install version 2.18.3.12345 of the software.

Installation consists of four parts:

  1. Downloading files from the AWS Elemental User community

  2. Installing the host operating system (OS)

  3. Installing the AWS Elemental software

  4. Setting up licensing
