In this example, the installation of FreeBSD 13.0 is performed
In your ZAP interface, select the desired ISO of FreeBSD and let the server boot with the ISO until it is in the setup process.
Navigation in the setup process is done with TAB, Space and Enter. TAB = switch between items, Space = highlight, Enter = confirm
⌚ The setup
When the ISO is successfully loaded, the server is in the setup process.
We start the installation by pressing
Choose the keymap of your like and proceed with continue
Choose your desired hostname
You could choose optional systempackages which should be installed, after you're done proceed with OK
In this step you could create partitions, in this example we're using a RAID0. More informations about RAIDs are explained in our special guide.
You can proceed with
Enter if there are no changes
Since we've got a RAID0 we choose no redundandy
Mark your volume, with
Space and process by pressing
We verify that all data will be erased
Your server is now processing the setup, this could take several minutes
Please fillin your password and proceed by pressing
Choose "No" at IPv4/IPv6 Configuration, this must be done in the end
Choose "Yes" and select your timezone and the date/time configurations
You could change the systems which will be automatically started on a server start
If necessary, you can modify the security settings
The setup is now done, choose "Exit" and confirm by pressing
Remove the ISO-File in your iLO and choose "Reboot"
To enable the network device, please login to your system using the password
Open loader.conf with a editor of your decision, as example
ee /boot/loader.conf and add the following line:
You can leave the editor by pressing
CTRL+C and writing exit, after that please reboot your dedicated server
After the reboot, we need to modify the rc.conf as example by
ee /etc/rc.conf, add the following lines:
ifconfig_oce0="inet YourIP netmask 255.255.255.0" defaultrouter="YourGateway"
YourIP is the IP address of your dedicated server, this is showed in your ZAP interface. At "defaultrouter" its required to fillin the default gateway, this is always your server ip with a .1 in the end, as example:
Server IP: 126.96.36.199
This should in example look like:
Leave the editor by pressing
CTRL+Cand writing "exit" after that execute the command
Your server should have an active internet connection now
