HowTo install a fresh Olive
- ad0 Compact flash drive. Flash drive, which is a nonrotating drive. When a new router is shipped from the factory, the JUNOS software is preinstalled on the flash drive.
- ad1 Hard drive. Hard disk, which is a rotating drive. When a new router is shipped from the factory, the JUNOS software is preinstalled on the hard disk. This drive also is used to store system log files and diagnostic dump files.
- ad2 is free and can therefore be used for CDROM.
- ad3 PCMCIA slot. Removable media, either a PC Card or a LS-120MB floppy disk. The removable media that ships with each router contains a copy of the JUNOS software.

- Setup the machine with HD as master, CF as slave
- Do a minimal FreeBSD install on the HD. You need to setup networking options.
- From the new freebsd installation do the following:
% dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad1 count=2 % fdisk -BI ad1 % disklabel -w -B ad1s1 auto % disklabel -e ad1s1 Make the partition table like this (keep c as it is): a: 135680 0 4.2BSD 1024 8192 16 # (Cyl. 0 - 529) c: 251888 0 unused 0 0 # (Cyl. 0 - 983*) e: 52192 135680 4.2BSD 1024 8192 16 # (Cyl. 530 - 733*) % newfs -f 1024 -b 8192 /dev/ad1s1a % newfs -f 1024 -b 8192 /dev/ad1s1e
- Download the root image for the CF card and install it into the card:
% mount /dev/ad1s1a /mnt % cd /mnt ; tar xpf /path/to/cf-root.tar % umount /mnt
- Download the basic config file for the CF card:
% mount /dev/ad1s1e /mnt % cp /path/to/cf-config /mnt/juniper.conf % umount /mnt
- You should now have a working CF to boot from. We should now wipe the HD:
% dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad0
- Turn off the machine
- Set CF as Master, HD as slave
- You can now boot up the machine again. At this stage, most output will come throught the serial port on the machine and not the screen.
- It will complain that it cant find any partitions on the hd. This is ok, it will still work. What you have to do is make a partition table on the hd and do some dumps of what you have on your cf over to it:
% fdisk -BI ad1 % disklabel -w -B ad1s1 auto % disklabel -e ad1s1 Make the partition table like this (keep c as it is, f is the remainer of your HD): a: 135680 0 4.2BSD 1024 8192 16 # (Cyl. 0 - 134*) b: 3145472 135680 swap # (Cyl. 134*- 3255*) c: 39102273 0 unused 0 0 # (Cyl. 0 - 38791*) e: 52192 3281152 4.2BSD 1024 8192 16 # (Cyl. 3255*- 3306*) f: 35768929 3333344 4.2BSD 1024 8192 16 # (Cyl. 3306*- 38791*) % newfs -f 1024 -b 8192 /dev/ad1s1a % newfs -f 1024 -b 8192 /dev/ad1s1e % newfs -f 1024 -b 8192 /dev/ad1s1f % mount /dev/ad1s1f /mnt % (dump 0uf - /var | (cd /mnt; restore -rf -))
- You may now reboot the box.
- When it comes up, it wont complain about the missing filesystems. What you have to do now is sync over the root fs to the hd:
- Your Olive is now up and running!
