Collector evaluation

The evaluation license is accessible at http://www.opensvc.com/init/static/eval/evaluation_agreement.txt.

Prerequisites

System

  • The provisioning template is made for a Linux system supporting btrfs, ext4 and docker 1.8+.
  • 12 GB available in a single mounted writeable filesystem.
  • sudo rules to execute opensvc agent commands as root.
  • A configured bridge, either backend or frontend depending on the desired evaluation collector visibility.
  • A free ip address useable on the bridge, either routable or non-routable depending on the desired evaluation collector visibility.

OpenSVC agent

The OpenSVC must be installed, as the provisioning method exposed here creates a OpenSVC service. This agent does not need registering on the collector.opensvc.com collector.

The agent installation instructions are accessible at http://docs.opensvc.com/agent.install.html. Agent packages are available at http://repo.opensvc.com.

Proxies and firewalls

HTTPS access should be allowed for:

  • collector.opensvc.com (registry JWT auth)
  • www.opensvc.com (evaluation license agreement download, provisioning template)

Docker registry access

The installation procedure requires a collector.opensvc.com account, which is free to create, to pull the collector docker images from registry.opensvc.com because this registry delegates the authentication to collector.opensvc.com.

The register form is at https://collector.opensvc.com/init/default/user/register.

Login to the OpenSVC registry

# sudo docker login registry.opensvc.com
Username: <your collector login>
Password: <your collector password>

Verify

# sudo docker search registry.opensvc.com/opensvc

Installation

Interactive method:

# sudo svcmgr -s collector_eval create \
        --template https://www.opensvc.com/init/static/eval/opensvc.collector.template \
        --provision \
        --interactive

Or non-interactive method:

# sudo svcmgr -s collector_eval create \
        --template https://www.opensvc.com/init/static/eval/opensvc.collector.template \
        --env accept_license=yes \
        --env ipaddr=<ipaddr> \
        --env netmask=<netmask> \
        --env gateway=<gateway> \
        --env bridge=<bridge interface> \
        --env datafile_dir=/srv \
        --provision

The database still bootstraps for a few minutes after this command exits. An error page can be displayed in the browser while this bootstrap runs.

First steps

The default administrator account is root@localhost.localdomain with the opensvc password.

You can now:

  • register the agent on this collector, using instructions at http://docs.opensvc.com/agent.install.html.
  • changes default passwords.
  • add new users, remove the default admin user
  • import compliance designs
  • import provisioning templates
  • provision a docker private registry service delegating auth to this new collector.
  • provision a PowerDNS service serving the collector-maintained zones.

Enjoy the experience, and send feedback to support@opensvc.com.

End of evaluation

Clean up the service and all data using the command

# sudo svcmgr -s collector_eval delete \
        --unprovision
