Complete Configuration for First Node
When you complete the basic install configuration and select Yes to indicate that you are installing the first node, perform the following steps to complete the configuration for the Controller.
The first screen you see is the Network Time Protocol Client Configuration screen.
This screen gives the option of setting the time for the first node (the Controller) from a time that you set on the Hardware Clock screen - or - from an external Network Time Protocol server that you define.
NTP server configuration is mandatory and is set for the first node. Other nodes set their time to the time on the first node.
Select Yes at the Network Time Protocol Client Configuration screen.
The Network Time Protocol Client Configuration screen opens.
Enter the IP address, NTP server name, or NTP Server Pool name for at least one external NTP server.
You can add up to five NTP servers and make changes to the NTP server list at a later time.
When you complete the NTP configuration, select OK.
The Security Configuration screen opens.
In the Security Configuration screen:
In the SMTP Host Configuration screen, select whether you want to configure an SMTP host to receive platform-level emails, for example, emails about certificate expiration. This field is optional. You will configure email for report scheduling in the Administration console.
In the second SMTP Host Configuration screen:
Complete the Application User Configuration screen. The application user for the Controller becomes the System Application User and the default Super User.
In the Platform Configuration Confirmation screen, select OK.
In the Virtual Machine Question message, click Yes and click OK to continue the installation.
