Install NetQ Using the CLI

You can now install the NetQ software using the NetQ CLI.

This is the final set of steps for installing NetQ. If you have not already performed the installation preparation steps, go to Install the NetQ System before continuing here.

Install the NetQ System

To install NetQ, log in to your NetQ platform server, NetQ Appliance, NetQ Cloud Appliance or the master node of your cluster.

Then, to install the software, choose the tab for the type of deployment:

Run the following command on your NetQ platform server or NetQ Appliance:

cumulus@hostname:~$ netq install standalone full interface eth0 bundle /mnt/installables/NetQ-4.0.0.tgz

Run the following commands on your master node, using the IP addresses of your worker nodes:

cumulus@<hostname>:~$ netq install cluster full interface eth0 bundle /mnt/installables/NetQ-4.0.0.tgz workers <worker-1-ip> <worker-2-ip>

You can specify the IP address instead of the interface name here: use ip-addr <IP address> in place of interface <ifname> above.

Run the netq show opta-health command to verify all applications are operating properly. Allow 10-15 minutes for all applications to come up and report their status.

cumulus@hostname:~$ netq show opta-health

If any of the applications or services display Status as DOWN after 30 minutes, open a support ticket and attach the output of the opta-support command.

Install the OPTA Server

To install the OPTA server, choose the tab for the type of deployment:

Run the following command on your NetQ Cloud Appliance with the config-key sent by NVIDIA in an email titled “A new site has been added to your NVIDIA Cumulus NetQ account."

cumulus@<hostname>:~$ netq install opta standalone full interface eth0 bundle /mnt/installables/NetQ-4.0.0-opta.tgz config-key <your-config-key-from-email> proxy-host <proxy-hostname> proxy-port <proxy-port>

Run the following commands on your master NetQ Cloud Appliance with the config-key sent by NVIDIA in an email titled “A new site has been added to your NVIDIA Cumulus NetQ account."

cumulus@<hostname>:~$ netq install opta cluster full interface eth0 bundle /mnt/installables/NetQ-4.0.0-opta.tgz config-key <your-config-key-from-email> workers <worker-1-ip> <worker-2-ip> proxy-host <proxy-hostname> proxy-port <proxy-port>

You can specify the IP address instead of the interface name here: use ip-addr <IP address> in place of interface eth0 above.

Run the netq show opta-health command to verify all applications are operating properly.

cumulus@hostname:~$ netq show opta-health
OPTA is healthy
