Re: Uh-oh. I Guess Now I Gotta Upgrade

I guess I'm really headed down the rabbit hole now! So much has changed since 6.10.

Since I'm doing a "fresh" install onto (now) ancient hardware, how do apply ELRepo updates? Add another ISO to the thumb drive?

Re: Uh-oh. I Guess Now I Gotta Upgrade

SIgh. I'd like to say I enjoy a challenge, but why is it the challenges come unexpectedly? The CentOS 8.2 ISO is too large to fit onto an 8GB USB drive, so I had to requisition a larger one from my supply. OK, no challenge. Just to be on the safe side, I created a UEFI thumb drive with the boot.ISO ...

Re: Uh-oh. I Guess Now I Gotta Upgrade

I prefer UEFI, not that it would make a huge difference on such server. It's an option. I know it's an old machine, but I'd like to keep it limping along for a while (I'm working with HQ to get a brand new box, but if this is still serviceable, why not?). sudo dmidecode Wow! That dumps a lot of dat...

Re: Uh-oh. I Guess Now I Gotta Upgrade

Thanks for the replies so far. Here's an update: I went into the office today, and got to work on prepping the machine. I attached a 1TB exFAT USB HDD and backed up the vital files (technically, nothing is irreplaceable, but if I don't have to re-download, re-install...). I then created a bootable U...

Re: Uh-oh. I Guess Now I Gotta Upgrade

A T420 is a Dell Poweredge server and those often come with an iDRAC. If you have the right license for it then that has a built-in remote console that's just like standing in front of the server. That would also have the ability to mount iso imagesin a virtual DVD drive that the server can boot fr...

Uh-oh. I Guess Now I Gotta Upgrade

I think I had an account here a few years ago, when I first installed CentOS 6.5, but I can't find any record of it, so consider me new. I'm a Linux (and Mac) guy in a sea of Windows users. I work for a software company, and somehow managed to get them to spring for a server, which has become pretty...
