  • 1.  Fresh install issues zenoss core 5.1.9 & 5.2.1

    Posted 03-03-2017 09:07 AM

    HiAll,

    Im having some issues getting things off the ground. I original installed 5.1.9 from the ISO/DVD successfully onto an old desktop I had lying around (HP 6200 PRO MT 8GB ram and 500Gb sata disk) I got things up and running and was monitoring a couple of servers and some switches, Iquickly realised this machine wouldnt be enough for my testbut I liked what i'd seen so far with ZenOSS.. so decided to do a fresh install on better hardwareand this is where everything has unravelled kind of.... I should state that with the ISO /DVD Ive tried fully automated install setting no options just letting it do its thing(which is what i though I did on my dekstop machine)and changingthings like host/static ip as part of setup. The installation goes as expected(no erros during install on screen) and after selecting "Master" and change the passwords the installaton only responds on 22 53 and 8090. I've still got the original ZenOSS desktop running and i've compared as many files/logs as i can find looking for something to tell me whats not happening so i can fix it... I cannot find that magically line of code in the logfiles so I've come here to ask for advise or help as i'm stuck and dont know what I've done wrong or how to correct the situation.

    What Ive tried so far

    Bare metal

    ZenOSS core 5.1.9 installed onDell T310 with 16GB ram, 180GB raid 1 - let it automatically partition disk, let it install with default values ie DHCP IP and not setting hostname or search domain.

    ZenOSS core 5.19 installed same as above but set static IP/hostname/search domain.

    ZenOSS core 5.2.1 wont install barfs about sdb just before GUI installer starts.

    ZenOSS core 5.2.1 added another HD so it has sda sdb before installing, again barfs about sdcthis time just before GUI starts.

    VMware guest

    ZenOSS core 5.1.9 ESXi 6.5 guest VM 16GB ram,180GB disk - let it automatically partition disk, let it install with default values ie DHCP IP and not setting hostname or search domain

    ZenOSS core 5.1.9 installed same as above but set static IP/hostname/search domain.

    ZenOSS core 5.1.9VMware vSphere 5 Enterprise guest VM same as above two.

    ZenOSS core 5.2.1 Barfs about sdb/sdc just before GUI installer starts.

    Results from above always the same

    Only ports 22 53 & 8090 open and working as expected, ip addr / ps axu shown below. When i compare this tomy working host i can see77 veth connections linked to docker0. When i compare the output of #ps axu , my working host has lots of redis & and a ton of dockerprocesses running but as you can see below ive got SOD all running for docker and redis.. Ive tried multiple installs of the above, by nuking the host/guest vm and nothing is working.

    Is there anything simple that I'm missing or no doing that is causing this or is there a problem with the media I'm running out of machines to try installing on so i cant 100% rule out media... but for now as I've installed successfully the first time from the same media used I'm assuming its good and the issues is somewhere between the chair & keyboard. Im very new to docker hence why I used the resources/ISO in the email Igot from ZenOSS. I'm aware i can manually install ZenOSS which will be my next step I just didnt want that learning curve at the same time as evaluating ZenOSS.

    Any help / advise / suggestions would be great - Idont like losing to computers so would really like to understand whats going on and why its not working before I pull out what little hair Ihaveleft.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Gabe

    Hi All,

    While no one offered any help/suggestion/advice, I decided to try 1 more time on a different server... after installing on another server and getting th same issue today with no specific error that i can see or find.. the only thing that is different between my desktop test machine and the servers was the amount of HD avaliable. Once i gave the server more total disk space the installation worked without issue....

    Im still a little confused as to why if HD space is so important it didnt fail or warn me... at least i can now continue.

    Thanks

    Gabe



  • 3.  The installation from ISO/OVA

    The installation from ISO/OVA requires 7 disks.
    Unless you install 5.2.2 manually. Let me know if you need help with your Zenoss installation.

     

    Kind regards,
