Before you begin

Before you begin installing OP5 Monitor, check you are using a supported Linux operating system version in System requirements.

Install with a software package

To install OP5 Monitor with a software package:

  1. Download the OP5 Monitor installer (op5-monitor-<version>-x64.tar.gz) from the ITRS downloads page:

  2. Upload the TAR file package to the server, or download it to the server directly with wget, curl, or similar.
  3. Log on to the server as root, using SSH.
  4. Unpack the tar.gz file in the /root directory:
    cd /root
    tar -xvf op5-monitor-8.x.xx-x64.tar.gz				
  5. Navigate to the directory that was extracted from the tar.gz file.
    cd op5monitor_install_directory
  6. Start the upgrade by executing the installation script:
    ./install.sh
  7. Reboot the server.
    reboot

Success: OP5 Monitor is now running. To start using OP5 Monitor, see Get started with OP5 Monitor.

Offline installation

Beginning with OP5 Monitor 8.3.1, you can install OP5 Monitor in an offline environment using the OP5 Monitor installer.

Prerequisites

Before you install OP5 Monitor in an offline environment, check that you have the following:

  • A server running a supported Linux operating system. For more information, see Operating system support in OP5 Monitor 8.x compatibility matrix.

  • OP5 Monitor installer version 8.3.1 or higher.

  • Either an accessible OS repository or an OS ISO image. If you are using an OS ISO image, then it must be the same image, or a later or updated version, that was used to install the server. Whether you have an OS repository or an OS ISO image, it must contain the complete set of packages. For example, CentOS-7-x86_64-Everything-<version>.iso for CentOS. Access to OS packages is needed to satisfy dependencies from OP5 Monitor packages.

    Note: If you have an accessible OS repository on premise, then you can follow the installation steps as in an online environment. For guidance, see Install with a software package.

Install OP5 Monitor offline

  1. Upload the OS image and the OP5 Monitor installer to the server.

  2. Log on to the server as root, using SSH.

  3. Mount the OS image on the server:

    Copy
    mkdir /media/cdrom
    mount -o loop <OS-ISO-image.iso> /media/cdrom
  4. Unpack the tar.gz file in the /root directory:

    Copy
    cd /root
    tar -zxvf op5-monitor-8.x.xx-x64.tar.gz
  5. Navigate to the directory that was extracted from the tar.gz file:

    Copy
    cd <extracted directory>
  6. Start the installation by executing the installation script with the --with-os option:

    Copy
    /install.sh --with-os
  7. Reboot the server:

    Copy
    reboot

Success: OP5 Monitor is now running as a process inside the ISO image. To start using OP5 Monitor, see Get started with OP5 Monitor.
