Follow these instructions to install on a virtual server, such as VMWare, HyperV, KVM, and so on. Refer to the Installation overview for minimum installation requirements.

Installation instructions

  1. Download the latest version of the Unomaly installer:

    unomaly-2.31.1.iso

    The Unomaly installer is an ISO image file.

  2. Mount the ISO to the virtual server.

    Make sure the virtual server loads the ISO image file. You may need to configure your boot-up procedure.

  3. Boot the ISO image and press enter when presented with the Welcome screen to start installing.

Unomaly will automatically install itself on the virtual server. All storage available on the server will be consumed. During the install process the virtual server will reboot itself and finish the installation.

The installation is completed when you are greeted with an login prompt. The entire process takes between 10-30 minutes depending on how fast the installation media is, disk and processor.

Configuration instructions

After installing Unomaly, there are a few first time configurations that you need to do to finalise the installation.

You can complete these configurations in the Unomaly interface or from the console menu.

  1. 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”.

  2. (Recommended) Use a supported browser to navigate to the IP address to open the web interface and finalize the install using the configuration wizard.

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”.
