Installation of any system or application is the right way to start knowing about the system/application. Installation activity is need to be planned properly with a careful eye to all the related things. Specially the following,
- Sizing of the hardware (This always helps one understand about the available hardware box, there capacities and skill for selecting a best one out of the available).
- OS related dependencies.
- Storage related dependencies.
- Backup related dependencies (knowing what to backup, when to backup, storing of logs and review of the logs – In a word formulation of backup/recovery strategy).
- Database related dependencies.
In this blog here, I have kept my different installation experiences (No I have no intention to teach any one about the subject – Because always the OEM manuals are the best source – And those are derived out of teamwork, whereas whatever I have written here is out my experiences only, with a hope that I can recollect/remember the scenarios when I refer, and may be some people sitting around this world will be helped.
