3.0 Installation and Basic Setup

This chapter describes how to install and set up SUSEĀ® Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension 11 SP4 from scratch. Choose between an automatic setup or a manual setup. The automatic setup enables you to have a cluster up and running within a few minutes (with the choice to adjust any options later on), whereas the manual setup allows you to set your individual options right at the beginning.

Refer to chapter Section E.0, Upgrading Your Cluster and Updating Software Packages if you want to migrate a cluster that runs an older version of SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension, or if you want to update software packages on nodes that belong to a running cluster.
