    Installing the Operating System and Contrail Packages

    Install the stock CentOS or Ubuntu operating system image appropriate for your version of Contrail (CentOS 6.4 or 6.5 or Ubuntu 12.04.4 for Contrail 1.2 and greater) onto the server, then install Contrail packages separately.

    The following are general guidelines for installing the operating system and preparing to install Contrail. 

    1. Install a CentOS or Ubuntu minimal distribution as desired on all servers. Follow the published operating system installation procedure for the selected operating system; refer to the website for the operating system.
    2. After rebooting all of the servers after installation, verify that you can log in to each of them using the root password defined during installation.
    3. After the initial installations on all servers, configure some items specific to your systems, (see Configuring System Settings), then begin the first part of the installation (see Installing the Contrail Packages, Part One (CentOS or Ubuntu)).
