Cisco Prime Infrastructure Operating System

I need some help here. I know that Prime Infrasturcture virtual appliance deployments are ESX and ESXi, but do I need to have Red Hat Linux Enterprise Server 5.4 64-bit also? This is getting confusing.

Thanks.

Re: Cisco Prime Infrastructure Operating System

No, the redhat is already packaged by Cisco. When you deploy the appliance it will come with Redhat and the application installed. All you will need to do is give it IP address, passwords, etc.

Like Seth said it's all included in the ova distributions. Both PI and Prime LMS ova's bundle Cisco's "ADE-OS" Application Development Environment Operating System - a RHEL build.

PI doesn't let you access the root shell but here's exactly what's included in LMS, for example:

[SecLab-LMS/root-ade ~]# uname -a

[SecLab-LMS/root-ade ~]#

[SecLab-LMS/root-ade ~]# cat /etc/*-release
