All the same minimum requirements as previous labs. 2. Win2008 VM for Windows Server 2008 installation with login as the Administrator with password SU44orange! 3. Centos5 VM for Centos Linux 5 OS installation with login as root with password SU44orange! 4. Win7 VM for Windows 7 OS installation with login as user346 with password SU22oranage! P ART 1 ‐ I NSTALL THE C ENTOS L INUX 5 OPERATING SYSTEM 1. First we need to “insert the DVD”. In VMware browse to your Linux/CentOS VM, right click and then click Edit settings, then select the cd/dvd device. 2. On the right select Datastore ISO file, and click browse. Navigate to the IST‐LS‐H027‐XXX‐D > IST346_ISO_files > CentOS‐5.5‐i386‐bin‐DVD.iso and then click OK. 3. Select check mark on Connect at power on and then click ok Page 2 OS Installation 4. Now click Power on the virtual machine 5. Click once somewhere inside the VM screen (this moves inpu t of the mouse from your host to the Linux guest).
**To remove the mouse/keyboard from a Guest operation s ystem, click “ ctrl‐alt” 6. Read through the options presented. We are going to perfor m a standard installation in graphical mode, so press the enter key to continue. 7. Use your tab key to move the highlight from ‘ok’ to Skip, the n press the enter key. 8. On install screen, click next. Page 3 OS Installation 9. Leave the default English as our selected language, and then click next. 10. Again leave the default U.S. English as our keyboard, click next. Page 4 OS Installation
11. Next we get a warning about the partition table on our HD (v irtual HD, not host). We need to initialize so click Yes. 12. We are prompted for a few options next regarding how the HD will be setup. We could take the default and let the installer decide, but let’s walk through the process manu ally as a learning experience (and because the default doesn’t completely need our instructional needs in fu
uture labs). Use the drop down to choose Create custom layout, then click Next. 13. First we will create a partition for the files necessary to start up the OS, as follows: t
a. Select /dev/sda from the partition table. b. Click the New button. Page 5 OS Installation c. Select / for Mount Point. Select ext3 for File System Type. d. Input 15000 for Size and click OK 14. And last we will create a partition for the OS to use as tempo rary storage. Again, follow the previous procedure
to create another partition with the following specifications: a. File System Type: Swap b. Mount Point: NA c. Size: 1024 d. Please notice that we have about 4GB free space which we ’ll use later; Click Next. 15. The boot loader option is used to have more than one OS on VM. At this time we do not need this advanced feature; so leave the defaults and click Next. Page 6 OS Installation 16. Leave the network configuration on the default settings and click next. 17. The region screen is next, similar to a Time Zone screen as yo u’ll see in other OS installations. Leave the default (it should be correct) as America/New York, click next Page 7 OS Installation
18. Next you’ll be entering the “root” password. As you will see on the screen the Root account is used to administer the Linux OS (just like Administrator in Windows) . Enter the following Password SU44orange! Then click next 19. The next screen allows us to determine what software to ins tall within the OS. Select Customize Now then click next 20. You will be clicking in the left pane to select a category, then checking and/or unchecking individual components in the right pane for each category.

Virtualization ‐ no changes Clustering ‐ no changes Cluster Storage ‐ no changes Languages ‐ no changes Click Next to continue 21. Click next to begin 22. Installation will take some time, watch the process – or start the next section with the Windows 7 install. Just check back here from time to time to check on the progress so you can co mplete this installation. 23. It’s all done, click Reboot Page 9 OS Installation 24. After the reboot, you will come to a Welcome screen. Read t he text then click Forward. 25. First we will setup the firewall settings. Leave enabled but do check any other options, click Forward on’t Page 10 OS Installation 26. This flavor (version) of Linux provides “SELinux”, and we always want to protect our servers so let’s use it; leave the default Enforcing and click Forward 27. We aren’t going to use advanced troubleshooting this semester so leave this unchecked, click Forward Page 11 OS Installation
28. Make sure the Date and Time are set correctly then click For ward 29. We already have our Root account setup so we need to crea te our first “user” account (remember that Root is “admin”). Enter the following information, and then click For

On the Additional CDs screen, click Finish. 32. Once all complete you’ll be at the logon screen. Login using your student account. Page 13 OS Installation
33. Installation completed, so let’s shut it down until the next la b. From the main desktop window click System, then Shut Down 34. The last thing to do is to take the DVD out by removing the IS from the VM configuration. SO
Using the same procedure as when you added to change the setting back to Client Device. Page 14 OS Installation P AR T 2 ‐ I NSTA L L THE W IN D OWS 7 OPE R ATING SYST EM 1. Use the same procedure as before to update the CD/DVD to use an ISO file. This time choose the Windows 7 o

Page 16 OS Installation 9. After the installation is done the VM will reboot and begin th e configuration wizard phase. First we will create a user (non admin; the Administrator account is created autom atically). Create user346 and give the computer the name Win7. Assign th e password SU22orange! And give the hint of 346 password. NOTE: We will be using the number 22 for user accounts and 44 f or admin accounts (44 is a higher number so it will be used for higher permissions; easy to remember that way). 10. For Windows updates we are fine using the recommended s ettings on the workstation (we would NEVER allow
updates to automatically apply on a server though). 11. Set the correct time zone (UTC ‐05:00) Eastern Time (US & C anada) Page 17 OS Installation
12. Set your computer’s current location to Work Network 13. Good job. Make sure you can log in using user346 and the pa ssword. If so, shut down the VM.

Click ok; then click Close; then click Restart Now Page 21 OS Installation 14. Once the server has restarted, log in as Administrator 15.
