You can deploy the vNIOS appliance from a remote web server or a local file system accessible from your management system. Instructions in this section assume that you have configured the server on your network, and you are able to connect to it from your management system.
To deploy a vNIOS appliance for KVM, complete the following:

  1. Install relevant package for the operating system, either CentOS for KVM or RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) for KVM-based OpenStack, that you use:
    • In your CentOS environment, verify that you have already installed the device-mapper package. If not, run the following commands to install the package:
      yum install device-mapper
      service libvirtd restart
    • In your RHEL environment, verify that you have already installed the gnome package. If not, you can run the following commands to install the package:
      yum group list
      The above command lists all available installation groups on the RHEL environment. Next, run the following command to install gnome package:

      yum groupinstall 'X Window System' 'GNOME'
