HPSA 10 installation failing

Hello All,


When i am trying to HPSA 10 getting below error.


Please start with the primary distribution.  Aborting!


I have mounted the iso file by using below command 


mount -o loop /var/tmp/HPSA_9_10/Software_SA_Product_Software_10.00_MLU_PRIMARY_Disc_1_T8900-15046-01.iso /mnt


Could you please let us know whether the above mount command is correct or not. If no please provide me steps to mount file.

Re: HPSA 10 installation failing



Obviously, you had successfully mounted the ISO since you received the error message. Refer to page 72 of  the "HP SA 10.0 Standard/Advanced Installation Guide", "Mount the SA ISO or DVDs" and strictly follow "by the book" how the mount points have to be created. The SA Installer strictly requires a very specific media directory structure. For example, the primary .iso file must be in a media directory structure of <your_mount_point>/hpsa-primary/disk001 to run.


Good luck,
