Provisioning Manager Business Edition on Linux

Has anyone successfully installed and configured the Linux Version of Provisioning manager that came with the BE6000 8.6 bundle?

I can get the IP/Network config done using the Quick Start Guide, but then the guide references logging in with admin, and doing root_enable, then setup SSL Certificate.  Anybody knows what the missing/correct steps are to get this up and running.

Thanks.

Hello Robby;

     Did you get the answer for this issue? I am stuck in the same step.

Thanks in advanced!

  Bump - make it 3, I'm in the same situation.  If you try to skip the SSL setup, the web interface comes up with Licensing Error and Licensing Information not found.

Still trying to get an answer from Cisco on the CUPM 8.6 setup   It appears that in Version 9.0 of Business Edition, the Linux Provisioning manager starts with a Setup utility instead of someone doing the text file modication setup that 8.6 uses.   I have been trying to see if we can use 9.0 of provisioning manager with some of the 8.6 CCM BE versions we installed back in the fall.   We have yet to install or upgrade any of our customers to 9.0 yet.   So I do not have that version to try yet.   I have seen an online demo of 9.0 put out by Cisco.

Re: Provisioning Manager Business Edition on Linux

Hi,

Often that licensing error is caused when the VM mac Address is not set correctly. Check the Quick Setup Guide - essentially you have to set the last 3 octets to 11:11:11 before installing.

Hello Andrew and thanks for the reply!

      In my case,  the MAC address is set as per the instructions but I have not been able to enable SSL since on the Qucik Start Guide it does not specify how to copy the files (the four folders) into the Provisioning Manager. How this is achieved?

Thanks again!

Thanks Andrew - fortunately I didn't have to re-install.  Just changed the last 6 digits of the MAC to 11:11:11 and the web interface loads.

The documentation I have been using for this install is lacking, especially for a non-Linux head like myself.

Below are my very crude notes in hopes they will be of use to someone.  There are likely some errors, but should get you on the right track.

These notes from the above link start at "Installing OpenSSL and Generating a Certificate"

Install SSL - as root

Attach ISO to the VM as a CD Drive then:

mkdir /mnt/cdrom

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

cd /mnt/cdrom

Ls

Cp OpenSSL0.9.8s-Linux_P90X.zip /home/admin

Cd /home/admin

Ls

Unzip OpenSSL0.9.8s-Linux_P90X.zip

Cd OpenSSL-0.9.8s-Linux_P90X

Cp -fr * /opt/cupm/httpd

Cd /opt/cupm/httpd/bin

Chmod 777 openssl

./openssl genrsa -out /opt/cupm/httpd/yourdomain.local.key 1024

/opt/cupm/httpd/bin/apachectl -k stop

./openssl req -new -key /opt/cupm/httpd/yourdomain.local.key -x509 -out /opt/cupm/httpd/yourdomain.crt -days 365

Answer SSL questions

/opt/cupm/httpd/bin/apachectl -k stop

Vi /opt/cupm/httpd/conf/ssl.conf

Edit the following lines with the paths created above:

SSLCertificateFile /opt/cupm/httpd/southwestfcu.crt

         SSLCertificateKeyFile /opt/cupm/httpd/southwestfcu.local.key

Cd /opt/cupm/httpd/bin/conf

Cp httpd.conf httpd.conf.bak

Edit the following with VI

Vi httpd.conf

Commend out these 2 lines  (/mod_ssl.c to find them)

#

#

Backup then edit ssl.conf to "uncomment" the lines below.

Cp ssl.conf ssl.conf.bak

Vi ssl.conf

Uncomment these 2 lines:

Verify/modify these lines:

Listen 443

ServerName host.your-domain.com:443

Save your file and back to command line restart Apache:

/opt/cupm/httpd/bin/apachectl -k start -DSSL

Thanks for the reply! One question, wich option for attaching the drive on VMWare did you use?The one that connects the CD ROM drive?

  Yes, in my case I had uploaded an ISO of the DVD so I attached that.  I assume you could also map your client DVD drive through to the VM.

  Actually, I created an ISO of the CD that shipped.  Then uploaded that to the datastore and mounted it in the VM.  Although it may be easier to do it the way you describe.
