This section presents the steps to prepare your target and deployer machines.
Begin the deployment with the following pre-deployment steps:
To get you started on deploying Autonomous Identity in your environment, make sure the following prerequisites are followed:
Operating System. The target machine requires CentOS 8, Docker, and Python 3.6 or later. The deployer machine can use any operating system as long as Docker is installed. For this chapter, we use CentOS 8 as its base operating system.
Memory Requirements. Make sure you have enough free disk space on the deployer machine before running the
deployer.shcommands. We recommend at least 500GB.
Autonomous Identity provides a Docker image that creates a
script to download all of the images necessary for the installation. The following images are downloaded:
Release 2020.6 microservices
Apache Spark 2.4.4
Analytics service v19
Various RPM and PIP packages that Autonomous Identity requires.
Set Up the Deployer Machine
Let’s set up the deployer machine from which we will run Docker commands to install Autonomous Identity onto the target node.
For prerequisites, make sure you have CentOS 8 installed on your server.
Check the Deployer Machine
The install assumes that you have CentOS 8 as your operating system. Check your CentOS 8 version.
As root, configure the user for passwordless sudo. Replace "username" with your username.
Install yum-utils package on the deployer machine. yum-utils is a utilities manager for the Yum RPM package repository. The repository compresses software packages for Linux distributions.
$ sudo yum -y install yum-utils
Check your python version.
$ python3 --version
If you do not have Python 3.6 or higher. Install it on your system.
$ sudo yum -y install python3
Install Docker on the Deployer Machine
Create the installation directory. Note that you can use any install directory for your system as long as your run the
deployer.shscript from there. Also, the disk volume where you have the install directory must have at least 8GB free space for the installation.
$ mkdir ~/autoid-config
Set up the Docker-CE repository.
$ sudo yum-config-manager \ --add-repo https://download.docker.com/linux/centos/docker-ce.repo
Install the latest version of the Docker CE, the command-line interface, and containerd.io, a containerized website.
$ sudo yum -y install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io
Enable Docker to start at boot.
$ sudo systemctl enable docker
$ sudo systemctl start docker
Add the user to the Docker group.
$ sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
Set Up SSH
The deployer machine requires SSH for communication with its managed nodes. The deployer machine’s public SSH key should be copied to the
installation directory on the managed node in addition to the
directory allows the
autoid user on the deployer machine to log in to the account on the target.
Note that in single node deployments, SSH is still required for the deployer to communicate with itself.
On the deployer machine, run
ssh-keygento generate an RSA keypair, and then click Enter. You can use the default filename. Enter a password for protecting your private key.
$ ssh-keygen -t rsa
The public and private rsa key pair is stored in
On the deployer machine, copy the SSH key to the
$ cp ~/.ssh/id_rsa ~/autoid-config
Change the privileges to the file.
$ chmod 400 ~/autoid-config/id_rsa
Copy the public key file to your
authorized_keysdirectory on the target node.
Copy the public key file to the installation directory on the target node.
Test your setup.
$ ping remote_username@server_ip_address
