After you obtain the Live DVD ISO image, you need to start the Linux machine from the Live DVD ISO image that matches your version of Rapid Recovery Core.
This task is a step in Performing a bare metal restore for Linux machines. It is part of the process for Managing a Linux boot image.
- Navigate to the BMR target machine and load the Live DVD image from the appropriate location.
- If necessary, access settings for the BMR target machine, and modify the boot order so that the server will start from the device containing the Live DVD image.
- Boot the machine.
A Quest splash screen displays. A terminal window opens, displaying the IP address and authentication password for the machine.
NOTE: A new temporary password is generated each time the machine is started with the Live DVD image.
- Write down the IP address and the authentication password displayed on the introduction screen. You will need this information to connect the BMR target machine with the Rapid Recovery Core Console to complete the bare metal restore.
