Hi -

When attempting to install Spectrum  on a RHEL-7 system. When setting up my Host Installation Infomration (HII) file, I'm getting the following error when trying to test the install:

Cause

The customer entered an incorrect parameter "main_loc_server" instead of "main_loc_serv"

Environment

Release : 21.2

Component : SPECTRUM INSTALLATION

Resolution

  • Edit the Host Installation Information file (HII)
  • Change the "main_loc_server=<hostname>" parameter to "main_loc_serv=<hostname>"
  • Run the distributed install.
