Hi,

I have nexenta installed on a hp proliant NL40.
I would like to install napp-it, I cannot when I login via root
wget -O - www.napp-it.org/nappit | perl => it says command unknown or wrong

When I login via admin, it shows this

admin@Nexenta:~$ wget -O - www.napp-it.org/nappit | perl
--13:55:24--  http://www.napp-it.org/nappit
           => `-'

But it is not installed: page http://ipofmyserver:81 shows nothing.

Please advise.

Yes, I've seen some weird things happening with wget.

We usually use the following commands:-

wget http://www.napp-it.org/nappit -O nappit.pl

this download and saves the installer as nappit.pl, this file should be approx 26k

and then chmod 777 nappit.pl

su (to root).

and then run

from

cd /$HOME
perl /export/home/admin/nappit.pl

this will then run the perl scripts and install nappit...

BUT....there does seem to be an issue with the current detection routines in step 1a, which states using napp-it 0.8!

Thanks! I ll try that

BUT....there does seem to be an issue with the current detection routines in step 1a, which states using napp-it 0.8!

No idea what you mean by that, what it implies or how I should correct, please advise on that.

you will need Napp-it 0.8 to install on Nexenta!

This year 0.9 has been released, which does not support Nexenta!

hence the message, which states use 0.8!

no, you need to follow my instructions above!

see http:#a38736342

but use the nappit08 reference!

Actually I did, but tried it a second time, result is the same:

---
step 1a: check os, setup napp-it or updating to the most current version now
please wait uname -a: SunOS Nexenta 5.11 NexentaOS_134f i86pc i386 i86pc Solaris


NexentaCore is supported up to napp-it 0.8 - use napp-it 0.8!!

root@Nexenta://root#

Ok, then I must have done something wrong. Will recheck & post the steps I took.

Ok, worked fine now!
Note: don't see much added value in nappit (for a newbie) versus Nexenta though.

The Nexenta GUI is very good.
