For any DR2000v deployment, the first step is to install the DR2000v license within an associated physical DR appliance. With the DR2000 license that was emailed to you from Dell, follow these steps for proper licensing. First, log on to the physical DR appliance that your DR2000v will register with.
Next, select the license option under the appliance support management branch. Under the license file location, select Choose File. Now browse to the DR2000v license file that was emailed to you. Select Install License. You have now completed the one-time licensing step for your DR2000v.
To begin the DR2000v Hyper-V deployment, a handful of prerequisites must be met. We will now walk through meeting these prerequisites for this version of the DR2000v when this video was created. For the latest details, always refer to the latest Dell DR2000v deployment guide.
Now, make sure the Hyper-V role is installed on your host. And you will also need administrator privileges, or be a member of the administrators group. Now extract the downloaded DR2000v appliance installation package on the desired Hyper-V host to gain access to its files.
Before we execute the installation process, the following software prerequisites for a Hyper-V 2008 R2 deployment are required-- .NET Framework 4.5, Windows PowerShell 4.0, Windows Remote Management, and PowerShell Management Library for Hyper-V from Codeplex.
You can easily access most of the software to meet these requirements from within the Prerequisites folder. For your convenience, both online and offline versions of .NET framework 4.5 can be found, along with the .NET security update packages. Note, these prerequisite file names may change over time as different DR2000v OS versions are released.
Also, other updates may be required. For the latest details always refer to the latest Dell DR2000v deployment guide, which can be found on the Dell.com support site. For this deployment, we will install .NET framework 4.51 using the offline full install option. We'll skip ahead to the tail end of this install process.
OK the install's finished. Notice for this version of the DR2000v virtual appliance software two update files for .NET are also required. The first update is now installed. And we'll skip ahead to the tail end of this process.
The second update is now installed. And we'll skip ahead to the tail end of this process.
OK, both security files for .NET have been successfully installed. Now install Windows Management framework 4.0 update. We'll skip ahead to the tail end of this process.
Now PowerShell Management Library for Hyper-V from Codeplex will be installed. This prerequisite is an open source project that provides a PowerShell Management Library for Hyper-V. It is based on Microsoft public license. You can download the binaries from the following locations as described in the deployment guide. Use release 2, service pack 1 version.
For this video, I will save the download in the Prerequisites directory. This product is not signed. For this reason, the PowerShell Execution Policy must be set to unrestricted. To do so, enter the following command in PowerShell with elevated privileges.
We now need to reboot the server. And we'll skip ahead to the tail end of this reboot process. Next, we need to unblock the content. Within Windows Explorer, go to the extracted Codeplex Hyper-V Directory. Unblock each file in the Hyper-V Directory.
We'll skip ahead to the tail end of this process. After all files are unblocked, move the folder Hyper-V to the following directory.
Then import the modules from this library by executing the following commands. the resulting red output is normal. Now with the prerequisites taken care of, we are ready to deploy a DR2000v on a local Hyper-V host.
To begin the deployment, run the Dell DR2000v command script found at the root of the install package. Once run, a command line Deployment Wizard is presented. Select A for a local deployment. Now enter option one to deploy.
Enter an appropriate Hyper-V VM name for the DR2000v Virtual Appliance. Since we are installing a 2 terabyte DR2000v, enter option B for the proper storage size. The DR2000v Hyper-V virtual machine code is now being deployed. And this process takes two to three minutes. We'll skip ahead to the tail end of this process.
Since only one DR2000v will be deployed, enter N for no. The next step is to start the DR2000v virtual machine to self-extract installation packages and install all the DR2000v components. Select option 2 to start the DR2000v Enter the name of the DR2000v Virtual Appliance to start.
Since we'll only be starting one DR2000v Virtual Appliance, enter N for no. Next, launch Hyper-V Manager. Select the host where the DR2000v resides.
Now right mouse select the DR2000v VM. And choose Connect to view the installation process. Depending on your system resources, the next 10 to 20 minutes are needed to self-extract installation packages and components. We'll quickly skip ahead to the tail end of this install process.
After installation, log in to the DR2000v using the default DR username and password. When logging into the DR2000v for the first time, a System Setup and Configuration Wizard is presented. Click through the Wizard to configure the necessary network values that the DR2000v will use for your environment.
Name the DR2000v Virtual Appliance appropriately. Now confirm the network configuration settings. Next, the configuration of the DR2000v network settings takes place. And this takes three to four minutes. So we'll skip ahead to the tail end of this process.
At this point, the DR2000v has been successfully installed, configured. And we're almost done. The last step is to register the Virtual Appliance with an associated physical DR unit.
As you can see, we can register through the command line. But instead, we'll demonstrate the registration of the DR2000v from its Management Console. So let's open up a web browser.
Enter the DR2000v IP address into the web browser to gain access to its management console. Then login using the default username and password for the DR. When
