            ONBOOT="yes"

            • Define the Gateway:
              • vi /etc/sysconfig/network
            # Created by anaconda
            NETWORKING=yes
            HOSTNAME=localhost.localdomain
            GATEWAY=192.168.0.1

            • Restart the networking:
              • /etc/init.d/network restart
                  
            • Auto populate the /etc/resolv.conf by typing the following:
              • dhclient
            • Manually modify /etc/resolv.conf to include your DNS server:   vi /etc/resolv.conf
              • [root@localhost vb-verde]# cat /etc/resolv.conf
            ; generated by /usr/sbin/dhclient-script
            nameserver 192.168.0.13            <--------DNS IP Address
            nameserver 209.18.47.62
            nameserver 209.18.47.63

            Create the following file via the vi command:
                  vi /etc/security/limits.d/95-verde.conf
            Add the following lines of data:
            * - nproc -1
            * - nofile 65535

            Manually disable SELinux by editing the file
                 vi /etc/sysconfig/selinux
             Change the following line to:
                     SELINUX=disabled

            Create the vb-verde user and add it to the root group with the following two lines of commands:
                  useradd vb-verde
                  usermod -G root vb-verde

            Run the following linux updates..One at a time:

                yum update
                yum -y install epel-release
                yum -y --enablerepo=updates --enablerepo=base --assumeyes update openssl
                yum -y --enablerepo=updates --enablerepo=base --assumeyes install java-1.8.0-openjdk.x86_64
                yum -y --enablerepo=updates --enablerepo=base --assumeyes update libpng
                yum -y install gtk2
                yum install zip unzip

            ***NOTE*** If you're going to have a clustered environment, you should mount the storage at this point.  You need to install the following for the mount of NAS/NFS:
            yum -y install nfs-utils nfs-utils-lib

            Move/copy the VERDE rpm's to the /root directory and run the following command to install

                yum --nogpgcheck install VERDE*.rpm

            Configure the VERDE installation.  You'll need to select the server's function (Option 2 is CM/MD/VDI), provide the server's IP address and various other functional settings by running the following command:

            /usr/lib/verde/bin/verde-config -i

            Finally, disable the iptables and access the Management Console:

            iptables -F

            From the browser:        https://<ServerIP>:8443/mc

            ***IMPORTANT NOTE****  To stop and start VERDE services please use the following commands:

            /usr/lib/verde/bin/rc.verde script-stop
            /usr/lib/verde/bin/rc.verde script-start

            You can still use

            service VERDE status
            service LICSRV status
