I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

SolarWinds® Network Configuration Manager (NCM)

SolarWinds® Network Configuration Manager brings structure and peace of mind to configuration management. Bulk config deployment, automatic backups, change detection, vulnerability assessments, and config change templates reduce the time needed for repetitive tasks.

So, the installation is simply followed the link sent above ?

Dirk KotteSECommented:
you boot the CD and follow the GUI / Wizzards.
really simple.
AXISHKAuthor Commented:
My Redhat is  initially installed in text (not graphical) mode. Do I need to enable the GUI mode before installing it ?

If yes, how do I enable the GUI mode right not and remove it later.

Dirk KotteSECommented:
no, the installer runs with acsii based wizzards.
there is a ascii menu after installing xenserver.
the configuration and management is made with "xe cli" or remote-gui "xencenter"

there is a minimal linux without gui at the system after installer has finished.
