This section describes installing the Management Server. There are two
slightly different installation flows, depending on how many Management
Server nodes will be in your cloud:
- A single Management Server node, with MySQL on the same node.
- Multiple Management Server nodes, with MySQL on a node separate from
the Management Servers.
In either case, each machine must meet the system requirements described
in :ref:`minimum-system-requirements`.
.. warning::
For the sake of security, be sure the public Internet can not access port
8096 or port 8250 on the Management Server.
The procedure for installing the Management Server is:
#. Prepare the Operating System
#. (XenServer only) Download and install vhd-util.
#. Install the First Management Server
#. Install and Configure the MySQL database
#. Prepare NFS Shares
#. Prepare and Start Additional Management Servers (optional)
#. Prepare the System VM Template
Prepare the Operating System
The OS must be prepared to host the Management Server using the
following steps. These steps must be performed on each Management Server
#. Log in to your OS as root.
#. Check for a fully qualified hostname.
.. sourcecode:: bash
hostname --fqdn
This should return a fully qualified hostname such as
"". If it does not, edit /etc/hosts so
that it does.
#. Make sure that the machine can reach the Internet.
.. sourcecode:: bash
#. Turn on NTP for time synchronization.
.. note::
NTP is required to synchronize the clocks of the servers in your cloud.
Install NTP.
.. sourcecode:: bash
yum install ntp
.. sourcecode:: bash
sudo apt-get install openntpd
#. Repeat all of these steps on every host where the Management Server
will be installed.
