Install

Prerequisites

System

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

  • Linux kernel >= 3.8

  • 12 GB available in a storage pool

  • sudo rules to execute opensvc agent commands as root

  • docker >= 1.8

Cluster

The OpenSVC agent must be installed, as the provisioning method exposed here creates a OpenSVC service.

The agent installation instructions are accessible at Install.

Exposing the collector service needs either a dedicated ip address, or a cluster gateway.

Proxies and firewalls

Internet HTTPS access should be allowed for:

  • hub.docker.com (docker images registry)

  • www.opensvc.com (provisioning template download)

Deploy the service

Follow the instructions at https://github.com/opensvc/opensvc_templates/tree/main/collector.

The database still bootstraps for a few minutes after the deploy 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 https://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.
