This page is a work in progress!

This page will provide developer/user guidance on setting up an Acumos instance, as a supplement to Acumos documents. Currently there is a "One Click" installation guide with accompanying scripts but no guide for manual installation. The goal of this page in the interim is to fill those gaps, as we solidify the related info in the docs.

Info/efforts to be addressed here include:

  • Automated scripts that execute parts, and ultimately all of the installation process - One Click Installation Guide
  • Different types of install environments to be supported, e.g.
    • Multi-node in a private baremetal lab
    • Multi-node in a private OpenStack lab
    • Public cloud based

The install process will enable selection of the Acumos version to deploy. The default version to deploy is the latest stable version, currently 1.13. Go to <url> to determine if there is a later version you can deploy. How you select the version will be described when the installer script is available.

Scripted All-in-One Installation

The One Click Deploy User Guide can be found on the front page of

Manual Installation


Minimum required machines for running an instance of Acumos is 2 for docker-compose method on Ubuntu 16.04:

  • Application Server with Docker Engine.
  • DB Server with Marida DB 10.2

DB-VM Setup

**setup accounts**

Login to the Database Server eg: db-vm which Ubuntu 16.04 pre-installed and become root

Create a user (eg acumosopr)

**install mariadb**

Download the scripts on to the Database Server (eg: DB-vm)

**configure acumos database**

Following are the steps to install and setup acumos-application after the required servers (dbVM) are setup.


  • DATABASENAME = acumos_1_7_0
  • USERNAME = acumos_opr

create database:
mysql -u root -p

drop database if exists DATABASENAME;
create database DATABASENAME;
create user 'USERNAME'@'localhost' identified by 'USERPASSWORD';
grant all on DATABASENAME.* to 'USERNAME'@'localhost';
create user 'USERNAME'@'%' identified by 'USERPASSWORD';
grant all on DATABASENAME.* to 'USERNAME'@'%';
flush privileges;

or control-C out

as the working user:

create tables and data ( DDLs and DMLs)

Access the database installation scripts here

click on cmn-data-svc-ddl-dml-mysql-\*.sql where \* is DB version, click RAW control-A Control-C to copy

create DDL.sql file and paste to it, add line to begining:


save DDL.sql

run: mysql -u USERNAME -p < DDL.sql

Core-VM Setup

**setup accounts**

Login to the Application server eg: core-vm with ubuntu 16.04 pre-installed and become root

Create working user id (eg. acumosopr)

**install docker**

Download the scripts on to the Application server (eg: core-vm)

Execute the script as root to install and configure Docker software - ". /tmp/"

**Note** If you are using insecure docker registries, update /etc/docker/daemon.json file accordingly

**install java, and mavin (Do not need as Hippo CMS service is now dockerized)**

add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java

apt-get update

apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

apt-get install maven

**install acumos**

**configure acumos**

**install hippo cms**

**startup docker processes**

  1. Dear, I can see that the installation of Acumos requires Ubuntu 16.04. (see It is possible to install Acumos on Redhat OS? Thanks in advance. Best Regards.

  2. Nice page, going through the installation

    The AIO VM size is 16, but here we are recommending 64 - When I finish the install on an AWS spot VM I'll compare notes.

    Issues: as I progress through the install

    ACUMOS-851 - Getting issue details... STATUS

    The script brings up a grub-pc dialog (that would pause automated installs) - the VM is a clean Ubuntu 16.04.2 on us-east-1 on AWS using an R4.large spot instance

    Script is not re-runnable

    Acumos Installation

    selecting ok on keeping the version - causes the script to fail
    # trying a different option
    ubuntu@ip-172-31-60-143:~/system-integration/AIO$ sudo ./

    ++ exit 1

    Installing the package maintainer's version breaks the install as well

    Moving to Azure just to check

    1. it looks like the uname part of the docker install, installing this manually and commenting out this line in the install gets past docker setup

        sudo apt-get install -y \     linux-image-extra-$(uname -r) \     linux-image-extra-virtual
