Upgrading MD Storage Software

To upgrade from a previous version of the MDSM application, uninstall the previous version and then follow the instructions below.

To install the MD storage software:

1. Insert the PowerVault MD series resource media.

Depending on your operating system, the installer may launch automatically. If the installer does not
launch automatically, navigate to the root directory of the installation media (or downloaded installer
image) and run the md_launcher.exe file. For Linux-based systems, navigate to the root of the
resource media and run the autorun file.

NOTE: By default, Red Hat Enterprise Linux mounts the resource media with the -noexec
mount option, which does not allow you to run executable files. To change this setting, see the
Readme file in the root directory of the installation media.

2. Select Install MD Storage Software.

3. Read and accept the license agreement.

agent, multipath driver, and hardware providers.

automatically. If the MDCU does not launch automatically, launch it manually.

the desktop.
