2.2.2. Boot on a physical machine using CDROM

This chapter explains how to try Turbo IPsec on a physical machine, and install it, using a CDROM drive either physical or virtual.

If your server has a physical CD/DVD drive, you first need to burn the iso file on a blank CD or DVD. If it provides a virtual CDROM feature, simply use the iso file as input.

When you’re done, you can either:

Test Turbo IPsec

You will need physical access to the machine, and a keyboard and screen attached to it to complete these steps. Alternately, you may access the machine using its first serial port.

Once your CDROM setup is ready, it has to be inserted in the machine on which you want to test Turbo IPsec.

Then, you should go in the BIOS setup, select the CDROM drive as first boot device, save the configuration, and reboot.

After some time, you should get an output similar to the following on screen.

     Use the ^ and v keys to select which entry is highlighted.
     Press enter to boot the selected OS, 'e' to edit the commands
     before booting or 'c' for a command-line.
  The highlighted entry will be executed automatically in 9s.

After 10 seconds, or if you type on the Enter key, the boot will start. You should get the following output.

(...)
[  OK  ] Started 6WIND Turbo Appliances.
(...)
localhost login:

Note

Please contact 6WIND support if you do not get the login, or if you get a different status than OK for 6WIND Turbo Appliances in the logs.

You are ready to test the software. Your data will not persist after a reboot.

The next step is the license file installation.

Install Turbo IPsec

Once you have tried Turbo IPsec, you can install it on your machine. It can be done from the CLI, using the system-image command.

But first, you need to know on which device Turbo IPsec should be installed. To do so, log on the machine as root, password 6windos, and do the following:

root@localhost:~# lsblk | grep disk
sda      8:0   0 931.5G  0 disk

sda is the device we are looking for. We will install Turbo IPsec on sda in our example. The data on sda will be lost in the process.

Warning

Please carefully check the device associated to the disk you want to use, or you could wipe the wrong drive in the next step.

Then log as admin, password admin, and at the CLI prompt, do:

router{}system-image factory-install /dev/sdX

This command will install Turbo IPsec on /dev/sdX. The relevant configuration files will be copied from the CDROM drive to the local drive. At the end of the installation, you can reboot and unload the CDROM.

You will then get the familiar GRUB screen that you got when you were testing the software, and after some time, the login screen.
