IBM Blade Center

Post by joset3 » 2007/10/01 23:38:01

We have a server IBM Blade Center with CPU AMD Opteron Dual Core, model 2216, 2.4 GHz, RAM 2 GB and HD 146 GB. We can install CENTOS 4.4 i386 on this server? Are there special procedure to install CENTOS 4.4 i386 on this server? Please let me know.
Thanks.

from what i can read on the IBM serverproven webpage (http://www-03.ibm.com/servers/eserver/serverproven/compat/us/nos/redchate.html) it seems that CentOS 4.x should work ..
BUT : why not installing x86_64 on such beast ? (and not i386) and also why installing CentOS 4.4 when 4.5 is available ?

BTW, posting the same question in several places can be considered as 'rude' .. i've deleted your other posts and moved this one in the correct topic ...

With IBM blade servers, you can go to IBM website and use the exact model of your blade server and get installation procedures for it for Redhat 4.4 under support.
