Installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux on XenServer
Posted on 2011-09-05
I'm trying and failing to install Red HAt on a XenServer.
I've tried two options;
Hitting New VM, selecting teh Red HAt 6 template, attaching the boot.iso and running that. I get as far as selecting where the media is, hitting local CDROm and then it prompts me for a drive disk. I've created iso's using drivers from the HP site (Server is a HP Proliant Bl460c G7). When I mount the iso in XenServer and go back to the console and hit ok on ' Insert Drive Disk' I get Failed to mount driver disk.
The other way I've tried is to create a blank vm in XenServer using the other installation media option. I've mounted the redhat boot.iso in it's virtual dvd drive. It boots from that, tests the media and then asks me where the install media is, I hit cdrom drive and then it tells me 'The Redhat Enterprise Linux dis was not foound in any of my CDRom drives.
I'm running out of ideas to try!
