Software Tools

Before you (the administrator) install ZStack, prepare the following software packages to smoothen the installation and deployment process:
  • ZStack Custom ISO
    • File name: ZStack-x86_64-DVD-3.10.0-c76.iso
    • Download address: Click here.
    c72 ISO Upgrade Statement:
    • From ZStack 3.7.1, we no longer provide c72 ISO for installation. If you already installed c72 ISO, you could upgrade it to the latest version.
    • The local repositories (repos) in c72 ISO are directed to c74 ISO. If you use offline upgrade, obtain the c74 ISO to update the local repos.
  • ZStack Installation Package
    • File name: ZStack-installer-3.10.0.bin

Note: After you download the installation package, confirm the integrity of the file by using the MD5 checksum tool.

  3. From the Disk Drive drop-down list, select the target USB drives.
    • If the system has only one USB drive plugged in, the USB drive will be burned and written by default. Before you burn the image to the USB drive, make sure that the USB drive is backed up.
    • For other options, use the default settings. After the settings are completed, click Write.
    As shown in Figure 3.
