Configure the VERDE installation. You'll need to select the server's function (Option 2 is CM/MD/VDI), provide the server's IP address and various other functional settings by running the following command:
You'll use default user vb-verde
If this is the Cluster Master use Server Role option 2.
You'll provide the server's IP address
If this is a BRANCH, you'll be asked.
Is this a branch server (yes|no) [no]?
Respond with a yes
Then you're asked:
What is the address of the SmartSync Server ?
IMPORTANT...Input the IPAddress of the Cluster Master... Not the BRANCH.. the Cluster Master as follows: 192.168.1.228
You'll then be asked the SMART SYNC's Userid. Type in mcadmin1 or the equivalent.
You then need to enter the password for mcadamin1
The remaining questions can be left to default values.
See the following screen shot.
Finally, disable the iptables and access the Management Console:
systemctl stop firewalld
systemctl disable firewalld
Log into the Branch server like you do the Cluster Master.. https://<BranchIP>:8443/mc
If you receive a 500 web page error, rerun the configuration again:
