The hardware that you will need to support an installation of OpenServer 6 will vary depending on the installation options you choose. All installations have the following minimum requirements:
At least one Intel® Celeron®, Pentium®, Pentium II, Pentium II Xeon™, Pentium III, Pentium III Xeon, Pentium 4, or Intel Xeon microprocessor, or a microprocessor that is 100% compatible (e.g., AMD Athlon™, Athlon 64, Duron™, Sempron™, or Opteron™ processor). A Pentium P4 or one of higher performance is recommended, up to 32 CPUs are supported.
A minimum of 64MB of Random Access Memory (RAM) is required. For running graphically-intensive applications like Java or KDE, a minimum of 128 MB of RAM is required. 256MB of memory is recommended and up to 64 GB is supported.
Disk Size and Partitions
A hard disk of 4GB is needed to install all the packages included in the media kit. Small footprint installations can run in partitions as small as 1 GB. An 8GB disk is recommended and disks up to 1TB are supported
Additional space will be needed for data and user files.
A serial, USB, or PS/2-compatible mouse is recommended to access all graphical desktop functionality.
At least one IDE, SCSI, SATA or SAS Host Bus Adapter (HBA) is required, and up to 32 HBAs are supported by default. Additional HBAs (up to a maximum of 1024) can be added; however, the driver for any HBA added above 32 must support such a configuration.
A Super VGA monitor and video adapter capable of at least 1024x768 resolution is required to run the graphical desktop. Systems running Merge from the Optional Services CD will require a 1280x1024 16-bit (or better) graphics adapter. The graphics adapter used during a fresh installation must have an IBM VGA compatible mode.
At least one NIC is required for networking; up to 4 NICs of the same manufacturer and model can be connected at one time.
A 3.5-inch diskette is recommended and is required if:
- You want to perform an installation from the media kit CD-ROMs and your system does not support bootable CD-ROMs.
- You need to install vendor-supplied software (such as device drivers) from diskettes
