Prerequisite software on RHEL includes required software and recommended Perl modules.

If required software is not installed, the vCLI installer stops. You can install the prerequisite software by using yum, the RHEL package installer, or from the installation DVD, as follows.



RHEL 6.6 64-bit

yum install e2fsprogs-devel libuuid-devel
yum install glibc.i686
yum install perl-XML-LibXML

RHEL 7.1 64-bit

yum install e2fsprogs-devel libuuid-devel openssl-devel perl-devel
yum install glibc.i686 zlib.i686
yum install perl-XML-LibXML perl-Crypt-SSLeay

When the installer finishes, it might display a warning that the version of a module installed on your system does not match the version with which vCLI was tested. Install the recommended version by using yum or CPAN to resolve the issue. See Overview of Linux Installation Process for a complete list of modules.


The installer does not overwrite existing Perl modules.
