Collector evaluation

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

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. This agent does not need to be registered on the collector.opensvc.com collector.

The agent installation instructions are accessible at https://docs.opensvc.com/agent.install.html.

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

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

# sudo svcmgr -s collector_eval deploy \
        --config https://www.opensvc.com/init/static/templates/collector.template

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 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.

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