Installation session example

The following example shows how to install vCPE by using the install image command. The name of the image in the example is 4.x.

vyatta@vyatta:~$ install image

Welcome to the vRouter image installer.
What would you like to name this image? [4.x]: 
This image will be named: 4.x
The vRouter system requires a minimum 1000MB disk space
on a partiton type 83 (Linux).
Probing drives:  OK

The following drives were detected on your system:
 sda    8589MB


Install the image on? [sda]:

A legacy partition table (msdos) supports drives up to 2 TB
GPT partition format supports larger drives and partitions
Disk label type (msdos/gpt) [msdos]: 
Would you like me to try to partition a drive automatically
or would you rather partition it manually with parted?

If partitions are already set up, you may skip this step.
Partition (Auto/Parted/Skip) [Auto]: 

Welcome to the Automated Partition Installer!
The default set up for using multiple partitions is to reserve just enough
disk space for the vRouter and use the rest for data storage. The first partition 
entry always gets treated as the root partition for vRouter. In this case,
your partitions would look like this:


Partition 1: vRouter 4096MB on / 
Partition 2: LIBVIRT 4493MB on /var/lib/libvirt/images 


Continue (Yes/No/Adjust/Insert/Delete/Print) [Yes]:
