CentOS 6.5 Server Install


Recommended Posts

Yes CentOS 7 is out but it won't work on my old HP Proliant DL380 G4 so I am using my old CentOS 6.5 install CD and it is working great.

So what did I do....

First if you have a Smart Array, I configured two of the 6 drives in 1+0 for the default drive and the other 4 are RAID 5. Once these logical drives are configured you can move on and if you don't have a smart array, you can also move on.

CentOS booted up, I picked my location information and I did configure network device just because it makes it easier later.

When CentOS boots up, I had no network connection. I did a ifconfig and all it showed me was the loopback (lo) interface.

vi /etc/sysconfig/network-sccripts/ifconfig-eth0

had to change ONBOOT=no to ONBOOT=yes and saved my changes


/etc/init.d/network restart

I was able to ping (which is google DNS server)

Next is to update the old CentOS system so I ran

yum -y update

This installed 561 updates on my system.
