How we can install SolusVM on a slave node: SolusVM

by | Sep 8, 2021

Wondering how to install SolusVM on a slave node? We can help you with this!

As a part of our AWS Support Services, we often receive similar requests from our AWS customers.

Today, let’s see the steps followed by our Support Techs to help our customers for installing SolusVM on a slave node.

 

Install SolusVM on a slave node

 
Before installing SolusVM on the slave node, there are some requirements as listed below:
 

Supported OS

 
The supported OSes are RHEL 7,CentOS 7,OpenVZ 7,Scientific Linux 7.
 

The Partitioning

 
Now let’s see the partitioning for different hosts such as KVM, en PV/HVM, OpenVZ.

For KVM Host:

  • At least 80GB and more for the root partition ‘/’ size. The KVM templates & iso’s will be stored in /home/solusvm/kvm.
  • The SWAP memory should be 4GB+. Here, Virtual servers may use host swap if there is a real memory shortage.
  • Logical Volume Group (LVM) remaining space (Logical Volume Group Only, SolusVM will create the logical volumes for the virtual servers inside this group)

Also note that the Volume Group Name CANNOT be KVM as /dev/kvm/ is a directory created on install. The PE Size should be set to 32M.

For Xen PV/HVM Host:

  • At least 80GB and more for the root partition ‘/’ size.   The XEN templates & iso’s will be stored in /home/solusvm/xen.
  • The SWAP memory should be 4GB max .Here, Virtual servers won’t use the host swap.
  • Logical Volume Group remaining space (Logical Volume Group Only, SolusVM will create the logical volumes for the virtual servers inside this group)

Also note that the PE Size should be set to 32M.

For OpenVZ Host:

  • At least 80GB and more for the root partition ‘/’ size.
  • The SWAP memory should be 2 times RAM.
  • /vz remaining space.

Also be sure that port 6767 is open on the slave server among other ports. It is required to communicate master server with slave nodes.

Now we need to follow the steps below after completing all prerequisites:

  1. Firstly, we need to access the server via SSH.

2. Then we should download and run SolusVM Installer:

# wget https://files.soluslabs.com/install.sh
# sh install.sh

3. Then select the required virtualization with option type Hypervisor.

4. After that we should wait for the installer to completes the installation of the necessary components.

5. It is necessary to configure the bridge interface before adding slave nodes for Xen/KVM nodes.
