Vyatta Network OS Documentation

Learn how to install, configure and operate the Vyatta NOS, which helps drive our virtual networking & physical platforms portfolio.

Overview

You install the system from LiveCD, which you create before installation.

The installation process uses LiveCD as the source image, formats the device on which the system is being installed, installs the system, and, if possible, preserves configuration from previous installations. When the installation is completed you reboot your system and the newly installed system begins running. This method is called disk-based installation and uses the binary system image for installation. Disk-based installation allows you to install multiple versions of the vRouter as images and switch between the images easily.

Note: Not all hardware supports the ability to boot from a USB device or compact Flash. Check the BIOS of your hardware to see if it does.
