    I am getting a new blank server specs:

    Digital Caviar Black high performance drives.
    IPMI/KVM: Included free of charge! Full remote control/reboot/OS reload.
    Hard Drives: 1x 2TB (WD Caviar Black 64MB Cache!)
    SSD Drives: No SSD Drive (Allows 4 Hard Drives)
    IP Addresses: 5 Usable IPs
    Bandwidth: 100mbit Dedicated Unmetered (Approx 33TB out + 33TB in)
    RAM: 16GB DDR-3 ECC
    OS Install: Customer Loads OS From KVM
    Control Panel: No Control Panel-cPanel installing my self

    I was planning to get SolusVM then install cPanel-VPS how would I install it? I will tonight have access to IPMI/KVM for my blank server my datacenter is sweating away installing the hardware! Anway's how would I install cPanel with SolusVM with out Crashing cPanelVPS. My first guess is installing OS on a Host-Node first then what about those two Control Panels? Thanks for any help! :cool: There installing 70+ servers all threw out the day in the datacenter so I don't want to bug them there.

    Your hardware configuration scares me. Single drive? What if that drive fails?

    I'm most likely a bit too late to give any recommendations on the OS install....

    Indeed it is. You should always have some kind of raid level set for the data redundancy. Of course for that you need multiple hard disks.
    For setting solusvm please go through the Install - SolusVM
