2.22. Installation Complete

Congratulations! Your Red Hat Enterprise Linux installation is now complete!

The installation program prompts you to prepare your system for reboot.

Once the installation is complete, you must IPL (boot) from the DASD(s) where Red Hat Enterprise Linux has been installed. For example, on the 3270 console you may issue the command #cp i 200.


Assuming you are to disconnect from the 3270 console, use #cp disc instead of #cp logout or #cp log. This allows Red Hat Enterprise Linux for S/390 to continue running when not connected to the 3270 console.

Following IPLing the installed Red Hat Enterprise Linux OS, you may log on to the system via telnet or ssh. It is important to note that the only place you can log in as root is from the 3270 or from other devices as listed in /etc/securetty. To log in as root from remote systems, use ssh.

The first time you start your Red Hat Enterprise Linux system in run level 5 (the graphical run level), the Setup Agent is presented, which guides you through the Red Hat Enterprise Linux configuration. Using this tool, you can set your system time and date, install software, register your machine with Red Hat Network, and more. The Setup Agent lets you configure your environment at the beginning, so that you can get started using your Red Hat Enterprise Linux system quickly.

For more information on using the Setup Agent, refer to the chapter titled Getting Started in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Step By Step Guide.
