SCO OpenServer Release 6 Technical White Paper - Part 8
< Previous | Next >
The hardware necessary for installation of SCO OpenServer Release 6 varies depending on the installation options chosen. The sections that follow describe the minimum requirements.
SCO OpenServer Release 6 requires an Intel® Celeron®, Pentium®, Pentium II, Pentium III, Pentium 4, or Xeon™ microprocessor, or a microprocessor that is 100% compatible (such as the AMD Athlon™, Athlon 64, Duron™, Sempron, or Opteron™ processor). 64-bit processors are only supported in 32-bit mode. Pentium 4 is recommended.
Minimum: 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.
Recommended: 256MB. For optimal performance of the system when running graphically-intensive applications like Java or KDE, 512MB of RAM is recommended.
Minimum: To install all packages included in the media kit, 4GB of disk space is required. Small footprint installations can run on partitions as small as 1GB.
Maximum: 1TB (per disk)
At least one 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.
Recommended: SCSI, SATA, or SAS
Maximum: HBA Dependent
A serial, USB, or PS/2-compatible mouse is highly recommended for easy navigation of the graphical desktop interface.
An SVGA monitor and video adapter with a resolution of at least 1024x768 is required to run the graphical desktop. The graphics adapter used during a fresh installation must have an IBM VGA compatible mode.
A Network Interface Card (NIC) is only required for installation if you are performing a Network Install (not currently supported). 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 CD-ROM drive is required for installation from the SCO OpenServer Release 6 CD-ROMs. A 3.5-inch diskette drive is required if you need to install vendor-supplied software (such as device drivers) from diskettes.
