Create a Virtual MachineAfter downloading the relevant disk image file, follow the instructions for creating a virtual machine using the instructions in one of the following sections:
Setting Up Management Access
The hypervisor's console for the virtual machine will now be available for entering CLI commands. If this was not a virtual environment, the console would be directly connected to a port on system hardware. It allows the administrator to issue any CLI command and can be used to configure cOS Stream.
SSH Management access via a network connection to an Ethernet interface is not yet possible because management access must be configured for one of these interfaces. On initial startup, cOS Stream will detect the available Ethernet interfaces. By default, the interfaces if1 and if2 will be present.
The following list of steps is used for setting up network management access:
Configure SSH management access via one of the Ethernet interfaces. In this example, if1 is used. First, enable the predefined RemoteMgmtSSH rule:
System:/>set RemoteManagement RemoteMgmtSSH RemoteMgmtSSH -enable
Then the allowed interface and network must be set:
System:/>set RemoteManagement RemoteMgmtSSH RemoteMgmtSSH SourceInterface=if1 SourceNetwork=if1_net
The default SSH login credentials for RemoteMgmtSSH are:
The system's address book is automatically filled with address objects for all the available Ethernet interfaces. For network access, the if1 interface will need an IP address and IP network assigned to it. First, assign the IP address. Suppose that 203.0.113.10 will be used, then the command would be:
System:/>set Address IPAddress if1_ip Address=203.0.113.10
Secondly, assign the network to which the IP address belongs:
System:/>set Address IPAddress if1_net Address=203.0.113.0/24
Note that the interface address of the connecting SSH client computer must belong to the network if1_net (in this example, 203.0.113.0/24). If a Windows computer is used as the client, the console command ipconfig could be used to check the interface IP address.
For public Internet access, an all-nets default route needs to be added to the main routing table which includes the gateway address of a router. Unless there is a narrower route that matches for outgoing traffic, this route will always be used. To add the route, the CLI context needs to be changed to be the main routing table:
System:/>cc RoutingTable main
The command prompt will change to show that the current context is the main routing table:
Now, routes can be added to the main table. Assuming that the if1 interface is connected to a router with the IPv4 address 203.0.113.1 then a default route is added with the following command:
System:/RoutingTable/main>add Route Interface=if1 Network=all-nets-ip4 Gateway=203.0.113.1
Next, restore the CLI context to the default:
Finally, all configuration changes must be now activated with the following command:
Following activation, the changes must be committed permanently within 30 seconds otherwise the configuration will revert back to the original configuration and the changes will be lost. This is a check by cOS Stream that the administrator has not been locked out by the changes:
Now, an SSH console to the IP address of the if1 interface can be used to perform further administration tasks. SCP uploads can also be made via the same IP address.
A license must be associated with a MAC address on the virtual machine. To get a MAC address, use the following CLI command:
Below, are the first few lines of some typical output from this command, displaying an example MAC address:
System:/>ifstat if1 Interface if1: IP Address : 203.0.113.10 MAC : 51:54:00:90:64:75 Device : if1 PCI address : 00:03.0 Driver : virtio MTU : 1500 Routing Table : <all> Status : 10 Gbps full duplex
Now, log into the MyClavister website and select the Register License menu option.
System:/>license activate <license-filename>
The management access only restriction will be removed and cOS Stream will be restricted only by the capabilities defined by the license file.
