This chapter guides you through the initial hardware and software installation of Dolphin Express and SuperSockets. This means that no Dolphin software is installed on the nodes or the frontend prior to these instructions. To update an existing installation, please refer to Chapter 5, Update Installation; to add new nodes to a cluster, please refer to Chapter 7, Interconnect Maintenance,“Adding Nodes”.
The recommended installation procedure, which is described in this chapter, uses the Self-Installing Archive (SIA) distribution of the Dolphin Express software stack which can be used for all Linux versions that support the RPM package format. Installation on other Linux platforms is covered in Chapter 6, Manual Installation.
