Follow these instructions to install on Amazon Web Service (AWS) instances. Refer to the Installation overview for minimum installation requirements.

Installation instructions

  1. Download the latest version of Unomaly:

    The install file for AWS is an upgrade run-file, not an ISO-image file.

  2. Provision a Debian 8 (Jessie) 64-bit instance with the type “m4.xlarge” with 250 GB of EBS persistent disk storage.

    Launch Instance -> AWS Marketplace -> Search for “debian” and select “Debian GNU/Linux 8 (Jessie)”.

  3. Check that the correct ports are open in the AWS Security Policy:

    Type Protocol/Port
    HTTPS TCP/443
    SSH TCP/22
    Syslog TCP/514, UDP 5514
    SNMP UDP/162
    DNS UDP/53
    NTP UDP/123

  4. Upload the Unomaly run-file with SCP (or WinSCP) to your provisioned AWS instance.

  5. Log in to the AWS instance and execute the run-file:

    sudo sh <unomaly_install_file>.run

    Depending on your system, a reboot may be required. In that case, the installation will notify you and will continue the installation automatically after the reboot.

  6. After installing Unomaly, run this command to get the IP address of the Unomaly instance:

    sudo ifconfig eth0

    If you don’t automatically assign an IP address through DHCP, you need to use the console menu to set one manually. See “The Unomaly console menu”.

  7. (Recommended) Use a supported browser to navigate to the IP address (from Step 6) to open the web interface and follow the configuration wizard to set up the instance.

You can also use the Unomaly console menu to configure the instance from a command prompt. See “Configure the Unomaly instance”.

Configure email notification

We recommend that you configure the Unomaly instance to send email notifications when there are issues with the deployment or for alerts on monitored systems. You can configure SMTP and email settings in the Unomaly interface’s Settings > Email. See “Configure email settings”.
