Installing AWS Elemental Server Node-locked Licenses on Qualified Hardware

This section is for IT administrators who perform the first-time installation of AWS Elemental Server 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 Support Center.

Prerequisite Knowledge

It is assumed that you know how to:

  • Log in to the AWS Elemental machine over SSH, in order to work via the command line interface.

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

  • Access recently downloaded files on your workstation.

The procedure for installing any version of AWS Elemental Server is the same; only the version number in the file name changes. In this procedure, we show how to install version 2.16.3.12345 of the software.

Installation consists of four parts:

  1. Downloading files from AWS Elemental

  2. Installing the host operating system (OS)
