Install Repo Using Virtual Appliance

REPO Virtual Appliance

The REPO virtual appliance contains the virtual appliances for multiple software packages and smaller components (service bundles, software packages. binaries, scripts, Docker images, and so forth) used by the CloudCenter platform. Once you install and configure the REPO virtual appliance, the included components are installed and you can configure the associated properties when required in the CCM wizard, the CCO wizard, or the AMQP wizard.

      Field

      Description

      Package Store   Change Master

      Repository URL:
      Configure a master repository for this repository to sync.
      The default master is repo.cliqrtech.com. To change the URL to a different master repository, provide the URL of that repository.

      Set_MasterChange the local repo to be the master repo. The local repo will no longer sync with the master repository. You must provide and maintain the repository details (package update, image xml update, and so forth) if you select this option.
      Repo_SyncupSync up with the master repository and update all changes from the master repo if any.
      Add_ssh_keyIf this repo is used as a master repository, use this option to add the SSH keys of the local repositories that point to this repo.
      Bundle Store – Set_Bundle_URL
      Bundle Folder

      Update the folder version for the bundle store.

      repo/bundle/CloudCenter_Version

      For Example:

      repo/bundle/4.8.0

      Bundle URL

      Update the URL for the bundle store:

      http://your_HTTP_server/bundle/release-CloudCenter_Version/

      For Example:

      http://repo.cliqrtech.com/bundle/release-4.8.0/
      Icon

      If you do not include the trailing “/” in the command, you will receive errors at some point in the process.

      Icon

      To validate the right path for each release, provide the bundle URL in any browser and ascertain that the file has downloaded.

       

      The bundle store files are now available to the CloudCenter platform.

      Icon

      Should the http://your_HTTP_server/bundle/release-CloudCenter_Version/ path change in the future, be sure to specify the path down to the release-CloudCenter_Version/ folder level.

      Icon

      Use the folder structure as provided above – the path differs between components.

  1. Exit the Repo wizard.

  2. You have successfully installed the repo instance!

You can now proceed to Per Cloud Region (Required). Be sure to provide the REPO-specific URLs in the CCO wizard, if you have configured a dedicated package store, bundle store or Docker registry.
