General Prerequisites

  • MLNX_OFED must be installed on the server that will run UFM Docker
  • For UFM to work, you must have an InfiniBand port configured with an IP address and in "up" state.

     For InfiniBand support, please refer to NVIDIA Inbox Drivers, or MLNX_OFED guides.

  • Make sure to stop the following services before running UFM Docker container, as it utilizes the same default ports that they do: Pacemaker, httpd, OpenSM, and Carbon.
  • If firewall is running on the host, please make sure to add an allow rule for UFM used ports (listed below):

    If the default ports used by UFM are changed in UFM configuration files, make sure to open the modified ports on the host firewall.

    • 80 (TCP) and 443 (TPC) are used by WS clients (Apache Web Server)
    • 8000 (UDP) is used by the UFM server to listen for REST API requests (redirected by Apache web server)
    • 6306 (UDP) is used for multicast request communication with the latest UFM Agents
    • 8005 (UDP) is used as a UFM monitoring listening port
    • 8888 (TCP) is used by DRBD to communicate between the UFM Primary and Standby servers
    • 2022 (TCP) is used for SSH

Prerequisites for Upgrading UFM Docker Container

  • Supported versions for upgrade are UFM v.6.10.0 and above.
  • UFM files directory from previous container version mounted on the host.

Step 1: Loading UFM Docker Image

To load the UFM docker image, pull the latest image from docker hub:

docker pull mellanox/ufm-enterprise:latest

You can see full usage screen for ufm-installation by running the container with -h or -help flag:

docker run --rm mellanox/ufm-enterprise-installer:latest -h

Step 2: Installing UFM Docker

-v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
-v /etc/systemd/system/:/etc/systemd_files/ \
-v /opt/ufm/files/:/installation/ufm_files/ \
-v [LICENSE_DIRECTORY]:/installation/ufm_licenses/ \
mellanox/ufm-enterprise:latest \
--install [OPTIONS]

Modify the variables in the installation command as follows:

  • [UFM_LICENSES_DIR]: UFM license file or files location.

    Example: If your license file or files are located under /downloads/ufm_license_files/ then you must set this volume to be -v /downloads/ufm_license_files/:/installation/ufm_licenses/
