This is a quick note on how I got the Xen Orchestra Appliance (XOA) on a new XCP-ng server. I know there are many guides out there, and in fact this is not my original content, but I want to capture what I did to get it working.
Here are the steps I performed on my server in order to install XOA:
[14:16 xcpng ~]# bash -c "$(curl -sS http://xoa.io/deploy)" Welcome to the XOA auto-deploy script! Network settings: IP address? [dhcp] Your XOA will be started using DHCP xoa SSH account: Password? (disabled if empty) xoa account is disabled, to enable it later see https://xen-orchestra.com/docs/troubleshooting.html#set-or-recover-xoa-vm-password Importing XOA VM... Booting XOA VM... Waiting for your XOA to be ready… Your XOA is ready at https://192.168.1.207/ Default UI credentials: firstname.lastname@example.org/admin VM UUID: 19e56589-ed0d-5a24-c845-75b40b344f3b [14:24 xcpng ~]#
Next, login to the XOA at https://192.168.1.207 using the default credential to connect the XCP-ng server this:
- Home -> Add server
- Provide required information:
- Label: anything-you-like
- Host: ip-of-the-xcp-ng-server
- Username: root
- Password: root’s password
- Toggle the “Unauthorized Certificates”
Then click on Connect button.
Note: I didn’t bother changing the settings for this admin user as I will blow away this XOA once I install the XOA from source later.
