Installing on Red Hat, Cent OS, SuSE, or Fedora Linux

This section describes how to install maxView Storage Manager on systems running Red Hat Linux, Cent OS, SuSE Linux, or Fedora Linux. For information about installing maxView Storage Manager on Debian and Ubuntu Linux, see the next section. For a list of supported Linux operating systems, see System Requirements.
  1. Open a shell window, then change to the directory where the Linux installer package is located (see Downloading the Installer Package for details).
  2. To install maxView Storage Manager with maxCache Plus support, run the maxCache Plus installation script,; otherwise skip to Step 3.
    chmod +x
    If the installer detects a qualifying Adaptec Series Q controller and one of the supported Linux operating systems, it installs the maxCache Plus driver software, then it continues with the maxView Storage Manager installation. (See the Readme for a complete list of controllers and operating systems that support maxCache Plus.)
  3. To install maxView Storage Manager without maxCache Plus support, run the . bin file for your operating system version:
    Option Description
    Linux 64-bit ./StorMan-1.02.x86_64.bin
    Linux 32-bit ./StorMan-1.02.i386.bin
  4. When prompted for configuration details, enter the following:

    Enter your username [default: root]

    When the installation completes a confirmation message is displayed and the maxView Storage Manager icon is placed on your desktop.
  5. Repeat these steps to install maxView Storage Manager on every Linux system that will be part of your storage space.
