Please note: Raspberry Pi users should follow specific instructions found here.
This guide is for installing the Nimbus Storage Gateway on any virtual plaform, or directly to physical hardware.
Step 1. Download the ISO installer.
Step 2. Boot your system (VM or Physical) with the ISO file
Be sure that your system has at least 1GB of ram, and 8GB of disk space for the Nimbus SG operating system.
Step 3. Follow the prompts, and enter the device to install on (usually "/dev/sda")
Step 4. Once the installation completes (it can take a while), be sure to eject the ISO and reboot the system
Step 5. (optional) Assign a static IP address. By default the Nimbus SG will use DHCP.
Step 6. Check for updates. It is always a good idea to check for new updates right after installation.
Step 7. Open a web browser and navigate to the IP address shown on your console screen. From here you can choose your storage location, and complete any configuration tasks.
