Before you start the installation process please do the following tasks:

  1. Install and configure a server according to the requirements of your environment (see the Sizing Guide section).

    It is recommended to install Storware Endpoints on different machine than Storware Backup & Recovery.

2. Log in as **root** user over **SSH** protocol to the machine you want to install Storware Endpoint server on. 3. Run `lsblk` command to check the system name for the disk you will use as a storage destination. 4. In this example, disk **sdb, sdc, sdd, sde, sdf** were added to the system platform.

[root@centos8 mapper]# lsblk
sda                      8:0    0   50G  0 disk
├─sda1                   8:1    0  600M  0 part /boot/efi
├─sda2                   8:2    0    1G  0 part /boot
├─sda3                   8:3    0 14.4G  0 part
│ ├─vg_system-lv--root 253:0    0 46.8G  0 lvm  /
│ └─vg_system-lv_swap  253:1    0  1.6G  0 lvm  [SWAP]
└─sda4                   8:4    0   34G  0 part
  └─vg_system-lv--root 253:0    0 46.8G  0 lvm  /
sdb                      8:16   0  100G  0 disk
sdc                      8:32   0   35G  0 disk 
sdd                      8:48   0   70G  0 disk 
sde                      8:64   0   70G  0 disk 
sdf                      8:80   0    1T  0 disk 

5. Prior to installation, make sure you've got access to repo.storware.eu site. 6. Now the system platform is ready to deploy Storware Endpoints server. To start server installation, copy and paste this command to the system console and press ENTER:

bash < <(curl -s https://repo.storware.eu/storware/endpoints-local-install.sh)

7. The installation process may take up to 30 minutes, but it depends on your system performance. 8. After the installation process is finished, you can check the Storware Endpoints server service status by using the following command:
