On Cloud Compute Instance
On cloud MayaNAS installation is performed by running the downloaded self-extracting installer bundle image after login to your newly created compute instances using ssh. The installation is a two step process:
Start running installer bundle from sudo or from root shell.
The default Centos-7 kernel image is switched to ZettaLane Linux kernel 3.10.0-693.zl7.x86_64. This is required for our special port of Open-ZFS that is tightly integrated with Linux kernel. The compute instance will be rebooted to activate the new kernel after successful completion of step-1.
Running the installer again will proceed with installation of relevant packages for MayaNAS operation this time. At the end it will prepare the Web based management console and provide you with a randomly generated password for the default admin login account Please make a note that information.
By default the login credential for web management console is admin/Password. But for cloud installation please make a note of the random password that was auto generated. If you wish you can change the password anytime by running /opt/mayastor/web/changepass.sh.
Next proceed to configuration.
