Collector evaluation

The evaluation license is accessible at



The provisioning template targets a Linux deployment on a server meeting the following requirements:

  • Linux kernel >= 3.8.
  • 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.
  • git
  • btrfs tools and kernel module
  • ext4 tools and kernel module
  • docker >= 1.8, preferably installed from the upstream packaging

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.

The agent installation instructions are accessible at Agent packages are available at

Note docker 1.13 support requires an OpenSVC agent version >= 1.8-829.

Proxies and firewalls

HTTPS access should be allowed for:

  • (registry JWT auth)
  • (evaluation license agreement download, provisioning template)

Docker registry access

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

The register form is at

Login to the OpenSVC registry

# sudo docker login
Username: <your collector login>
Password: <your collector password>


# sudo docker search
INDEX         NAME                                            DESCRIPTION   STARS     OFFICIAL   AUTOMATED                     0                  0                  0                 0


Interactive method:

# sudo svcmgr -s collector_eval create \
        --template \
        --provision \

Or non-interactive method:

# sudo svcmgr -s collector_eval create \
        --template \
        --env accept_license=yes \
        --env ipaddr=<ipaddr> \
        --env netmask=<netmask> \
        --env gateway=<gateway> \
        --env bridge=<bridge interface> \
        --env datafile_dir=/srv \

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
  • 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.

End of evaluation

Clean up the service and all data using the command

# sudo svcmgr -s collector_eval delete \
