Install Repo Using Virtual Appliance

 

REPO Virtual Appliance

This component is ONLY required:

  • If you need a private REPO installed and prefer to run the CloudCenter platform in a purely isolated environment

  • If you do not have access to CloudCenter CDN (cdn.cliqr.com) – lack of Internet access

This component is NOT required if you are only using Container Clouds.

The REPO virtual appliance contains the virtual appliances for multiple software packages and smaller components (specifically, the Bundle Store, Package Store, and Docker Registry and other binaries, scripts, images, and so forth) used by the CloudCenter platform. REPO servers can reside anywhere as long as all the endpoints that need to reach this server can reach and resolve the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN). 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.

This REPO appliance:

  • Uses Nginx on a CentOS7 server.

  • Is version specific to each CloudCenter Release.

    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.
    Proxy_Settings

    The Proxy Server Configuration uses a SOCKS proxy if internet access is not available to sync packages from repo.cliqrtech.com. Use the following format:

    http://<host>:<port>
    Repo_SyncupSync up with the master repository and update all changes from the master repo if any.
    Add_ssh_keyIf the repo is used as a master repository, add the SSH keys of the local repository.
  3. Exit the Repo wizard.

  4. You have successfully installed the repo instance!

You have successfully configured the repo instance! You can now proceed to the next step:
