Prime Central for HCS Server Requirements

Requirement
Notes

Operating System

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5 (64-bit).

The install media, by default, ships with the required RPMs for the RHEL 5.5. However, if you prefer to use the yum command option, you must register with the RedHat site. The yum install command must be able to connect to the Red hat mirrors to install packages onto Linux. Registration ensures that you receive security updates, thus preventing any damage to OS. We recommend that you register your RHEL install with the Red Hat server. For instructions, visit http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Network_Satellite/5.3/html/Reference_Guide/ch-register.html

Note Python 2.4 ships with RHEL 5.5.

Accept the defaults while installing RHEL.

Do not install any software or update any existing software on RHEL 5.5 with yum, rpm, or other methods, before installation. However, you can install any OS updates or security patches after the installation is complete.

CUOM 9.0 MSP

UCSM 2.0
