From the menu, choose 2. Install RSA Authentication Manager.
On some systems after the Linux Kernel Loads it can take up to 30 minutes to see the following prompt:
"Install complete checking data."
The following prompts will display. Complete them as follows:
Keep settings? Y to keep, N to change
Agree to License <space bar> for Yes
FQDN: <enter the fully qualified domain name for the server>
IP: <enter the IP address for this server>
Subnet mask: <enter the value of the netmask>
Gateway: <enter the value of the default IP routing gateway IP>
DNS and alt: <enter relevant DNS servers>
Are these correct: <Y if settings are correct, N to redo them>
Note and copy the setup code which displays on the screen, as you will need this to complete the Quick Setup process.
The final prompt is Do you want to shutdown?
Enter Yes if, for example, the appliance is to be shipped somewhere and will be offline.
Enter No if you are completing Quick Setup now.
You should be able to run Quick Setup now using the FQDN entered above in the format of https://<fully_qualified_domain_name_of_server>.
If the RSA DVD does not boot, either:
The disk is bad,
The SATA optical DVD drive is bad, or
The SATA optical DVD drive is not first in the boot sequence (which should be the default for RSA Authentication Manager appliances).
1. Verify the DVD disk
Try booting the disk into another computer to verify that it is readable. Cancel when you see the RSA install screen. If the DVD not bootable, try burning again at a slower rate.
Try booting a known good bootable CD or DVD in the RSA Appliance drive, to see if that boot screen appears. Cancel when you see any install screen or else you will incur ridicule and shame.
2. Verify the DVD/CD optical drive on the appliance
Reboot the appliance with a monitor and keyboard physically attached so you can interrupt the boot sequence (typically with either the [F2] or [F11] key) and access the BIOS.
Edit the BIOS boot sequence and move the internal SATA DVD/CD optical drive to the #1 boot sequence device. If it is already there, the drive may be bad. If it is not there, reboot and try again.
If the internal DVD/CD optical drive is suspected to be bad, you can RMA the appliance. If you are in a hurry, try connecting a USB external DVD reader, make USB the #1 device in boot sequence in BIOS and try again.
