After initially installing the Cisco Catalyst 4948E switch and configuring it with log in information, such as login passwords and enable passwords, you must perform an initial setup on the switch for the VDS

TC installation. The Cisco Catalyst 4948E switch that is used for the VDS TC data switch should run

Cisco IOS Release15.1(2)SG4 or later, with the ENTERPRISE SERVICES W/O CRYPTO feature set, for example cat4500e-entservices-mz.151-2.SG4.bin. You can use the show version command to verify the version and feature set information for the switch.

Initial Setup of the Switch

To perform the initial setup of the switch, you must obtain a copy of the switch configuration file and extract the files inside of it. The configuration files are provided in a .tgz file that is available from the same location as the VDS TC ISO image file on www.cisco.com.

Caution The example switch configuration files are just examples. Please make sure to edit these files as appropriate for the network environment of your company.

Follow this procedure to configure the data switch:

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 6

Step 7

Step 8

Open the switch configuration file in a text editor, such as Notepad.

Review the switch configuration and make sure that the configuration file will not overwrite any necessary settings in your current switch configuration. Make any necessary changes to the switch configuration file that are appropriate for your installation and save the changes.

Log into the CLI of the data switch and enter enable to enter Enable mode. You will need the Enable mode password.

You should make a backup copy of the current switch configuration before you apply the VDS TC switch configuration file. To save a copy of the current switch configuration, use the copy run tftp command.

After you have backed up your current running configuration, enter config t to enter global configuration mode. The global configuration mode prompt of switch(config)# appears.

Installing and Configuring the Cisco VDS TC

Integrated Appliance Software

This chapter describes how to install the Cisco VDS TC Integrated Appliance software. The software installation script installs various system components. Upon completion, the installer performs some basic verification tests, such as verifying directory structure accessibility and IP addresses validity.

When the installer is about to finish (after installing the management software), it warns about a possible session disconnection and restarts the network service.

The installation script also installs and runs Cisco management software (SNMP and CLI) and the Cisco caching software.

This chapter contains these sections:

Formatting the Cache Storage File System

Installing the VDS TC Management Environment and Software

Chapter 4 Installing and Configuring the Cisco VDS TC Integrated Appliance Software

Warning There will be no confirmation prompt for this script, it will immediately format the disks and all of the data will be erased!

When this script is done running, the cache storage file system is formatted.

Installing the VDS TC Management Environment and Software

While still logged into the cache engine as the root user, follow this procedure to install the management environment and software:

Procedure

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

You must extract the VDS-TC software from the packed archive, which is located in the /tftpboot folder.

From the CE prompt, enter cd /tftpboot/ to change to the /tftpboot directory.

Enter the ls command to see the name of the archive file. The file you are looking for will start with

VDS-TC_FI and will include Integrated_Appliance in the filename. Record the name of this file because you will need it in a later step. The numbers in the archive file represent the version of the VDS TC caching software. For example, the file named VDS-TC_FI_5.2.0b123_Integrated_Appliance.tar.gz would be for a VDS TC Integrated Appliance installation and the version number of the software is

5.2.0b123.

After you have located the file to extract, from the /tftpboot folder enter the following commands: a.

Enter the command mkdir version where version is the version number of the archive file you discovered in Step 2. The version number is contained in the filename. For example, mkdir

5.2.0b123.

b.

c.

Use the cd command to change to the directory you created in Step a, for example cd 5.2.0b123.

Enter the command tar -zxvf ../archive_name where archive_name is the name of the file located in

Step 2. For example, tar –zxvf ../VDS-TC_FI_5.2.0b123_Integrated_Appliance.tar.gz.

Note

Step 4

Step 5

The filename will contain FI before the version number if it is a full installation. If this is an upgrade, the filename will contain GA before the version number. Also, the last five digits of the version number should be an odd number for an Integrated Appliance installation file.

After the content of the file is extracted, run the first install script be entering the command

./GA_installer.sh.

When prompted, enter the IP address of the primary name server (DNS server) and press Enter.

Note If no DNS server is available, enter 0.0.0.0 to prevent system functionality from being negatively affected.

Step 6

Step 7

Enter y to confirm the entry.

When prompted, enter the IP address of the secondary name server (DNS server) and press Enter.

Note

Step 8

If no secondary DNS server is available, leave this field blank.

Enter y to confirm the entry.
