6.3 Installing CDF

This section provides guidance for installing the CDF Installer.

NOTE:You can install the CDF Installer as a root user or sudo user. However, if you choose to install as a sudo user, you must first configure installation permissions from the root user. For more information on providing permissions for the sudo user, see Enabling Installation Permissions for a sudo User.

  1. Log in to the master node as root or sudo user.

  2. Change to the directory where you downloaded the installer files. For information about downloading the installer files, see Downloading Identity Intelligence.

    cd <download_directory>/identityintelligence-x.x.x/installers/cdf-x.x.x

    For example:

    cd opt/identityintelligence-x.x.x/installers/cdf-x.x.x

  3. (Conditional) If you want to install CDF on the node where Vertica is installed, use the command:

    ./install -m <metadata_file_path>
    --fail-swap-on false
    --k8s-home <cdf_installer_directory>
    --nfs-server <NFS_server_IP_address>
    --nfs-folder <NFS_ITOM_volume_file_path>

    Example:

    ./install -m /opt/identityintelligence-x.x.x.x/suite_images/arcsight-installer-metadata-x.x.x.x-master.tar.gz
    --fail-swap-on false
    --k8s-home /opt/arcsight/kubernetes
    --nfs-server 10.204.100.224
    --nfs-folder /opt/arcsight/nfs/volumes/itom-vol
    
  4. (Conditional) If you want to install CDF on a node where Vertica is not installed, use the command:

    ./install -m <metadata_file_path>
    --k8s-home <cdf_installer_directory>
    --nfs-server <NFS_server_IP_address>
    --nfs-folder <NFS_ITOM_volume_file_path>

    Example:

    ./install -m /opt/identityintelligence-x.x.x.x/suite_images/arcsight-installer-metadata-x.x.x.x-master.tar.gz
    --k8s-home /opt/arcsight/kubernetes
    --nfs-server 10.204.100.224
    --nfs-folder /opt/arcsight/nfs/volumes/itom-vol
    
  5. (Conditional) For high availability, use the following command:

    ./install -m <metadata_file_path>
    --k8s-home <NFS_server_IP_address>
    --nfs-folder <NFS_ITOM_volume_file_path>
    --registry-orgname srg 
    --fail-swap-on false 
    --ha-virtual-ip <HA_virtual_IP_address>

    Example:

    /install -m /opt/arcsight-installer-metadata-2.1.0.16-pre-release-2.1.0.tar
    --k8s-home /opt/arcsight/kubernetes
    --nfs-server 164.99.175.220
    --nfs-folder /opt/arcsight/nfs/volumes/itom-vol 
    --registry-orgname srg
    --fail-swap-on false 
    --ha-virtual-ip 164.99.175.225
  6. When prompted, specify the administrator password. This password is required to log into CDF Management Portal.

  7. Copy the CDF Management Portal URL displayed in the installation success message.

    Using the CDF Management Portal, you can deploy Identity Intelligence and all required software in a cluster.

  8. To deploy Identity Intelligence and all required software, continue with the section Installing Identity Intelligence.
