Getting Started
This chapter describes pre-installation planning and requirements that applies to all types of installations; as well as upgrading, rebooting, and basic configuration file management. There are two ways you can obtain the Media Flow Controller or Media Flow Manager software for installation on generic x86 64-bit hardware from Juniper Networks Support:
Juniper Networks ships you a CD or USB drive with the software; you can also download an ISO image and burn a CD, or download files to an empty USB drive. How to install from CD or USB drive is described in this guide.
You use PXE (preboot execution environment) to obtain the software image. You must have a PXE server configured in order to use the PXE install option and a Web server to serve the image. How to configure your PXE server for Media Flow Controller or Media Flow Manager installation and how to install with PXE is described in this guide.
See “Requesting Technical Support” on page 1-12 for PXE, USB, or CD install packages.
See “Upgrading” on page 2-20 if all you need to do is an upgrade.
Installation steps for installing Media Flow Controller with specific media are provided in the following chapters:
Installation steps for installing Media Flow Manager using PXE are given in Installing Media Flow Manager.
