  1. After installing you may remove the downloadable gunzip'd file and the extracted image directory. Download the installation image from the following link and save the file to your local disk (such as /tmp/ovcveval.targz).  You may find it better to use Shift-click or pick 'Save Link As...' when downloading so your browser does not try to interpret the contents of the image.

    Solaris 2.6/Solaris 2.7/Solaris 2.8 ( image).

  2. Verify the correct file size by running ls -l on the file (a short file will cause checksum errors when you unzip).
        ls -l /tmp/ovcveval.targz
    The correct size is:  bytes
  3. You will need GNU zip to uncompress the files. It is available as /usr/local/bin/gunzip on most Solaris systems. If gunzip is not available on your system, you can download source or a compiled executable from http://www.gzip.org. You will also need a password to decrypt the image. This password was mailed to you after you filled out the OV Customer Views evaluation form.

    Run the commands as user root:

    1. mkdir /tmp/DEPOT
    2. cd /tmp/DEPOT
    3. cat /tmp/ovcveval.targz | crypt password  | gunzip -c | tar xvf - 
    4. ./install         # let the installation wizard lead you through installation
  4. Look in /var/adm/sw/swagent.log for any "ERROR" or "WARNING" strings.
