- change root password
- allow ‘root’ – to log in from everywhere and do anything
- disable SElinux
- disable ipv6 proto
- disable firewall
- add custom IP, not DHCP
- allow ftp into appliance
- install webmin for addm aplliance for easy manage
- use custom port for UI http
note: sometimes apache proxy to multiple addm on port 80 – can produce UI errors. I do not know how handle it, even after asking support guys, so the best decision was to change default port to another and access it directly, not by apache proxy.
This is how I run addm VM:
This is the way how to do it:
- Change default password root – tidewayroot to something yours
- Go to vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config and change the option to yes PermitRootLogin yes
- uncomment port 22
- comment line ‘AllowUsers’
- restart ‘service sshd restart’
- Go to network
- make the manual config on IP and disable ipv6 proto
- reset password for root
- go tofilezilla or anyftpcli you prefer:
- use SSH ftp connection
- then go to needed folder on ADDM Appliance, I prefer /var/www/ and upload Webmin RPM
- install Webmin after give 777 rights for package
It will install Webmin ignoring one SSL module which needs for HTTPS connection, but this is unnecessary for test local install.
After Webmin install you can manage any ADDM modules without any pain and may can install rpms with webmin siteload.
- Custom port for ADDM web UI on HTTP
Just go to Apache settings from webmin or just into httpd.conf and add any new port to listen – ADDM will answer on this port without any issue!
Don’t forget to restart any service you’ve made changes to!
