  6. Overview


Install an appropriate OS for the VM. This section describes how to install SUSE 11 SP4, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 14.04, Debian 8.6, SUSE 12, CentOS 7.4 for ARM, and XenServer 7.1 because installing these types of OSs requires some special configuration.

  • The BMS can use a maximum of three image primary partitions. Otherwise, BMS provisioning will fail.
  • If automatic disk capacity expansion is required, the root partition must be the last partition and a standard one.
