The aim of this series is to pass on the hands-on knowledge of the products, directly to you. All of the information is sourced from using the product in the field with you, so hopefully having this focus and having a central location will help all using the product. Today's session focuses on correcting the OS Swap size failure, noted in the installation pre-req checker/scanner. There are a series of blogs all targeting and demonstrating how to correct pre-req failures step-by-step with a live demo.

This session overviews how to correct the OS Swap Size, including:

  • How to check the current swap size you have in place;
  • How to create a new swap file;
  • How to configure the file as swap;
  • How to add the swap file to the system in real-time; and
  • How to modify the /etc/fstab to make the swap load on OS start.
