SnapCreator and Linux

[ Edited ]

Hi there,

I'm currently setting up SnapCreator server on Linux.

Unfortunately there seems like no init script is provided with it.

My question is what daemon/command should I run when the machine starts to enable the snapcreator scheduler.

Regards.

Looks like you want to start the GUI.

Steps:

1) cd to scServer directory

2) execute ./snapcreator --profile setup

3) complete the setup

4) cd to gui folder under scServer

5) execute java -jar snapcreator.jar

6) Now you can access snapcreator GUI in a browser http://localhost:8080/ by using the username/pwd entered during profile setup.

Thanks,

Kapil

Re: SnapCreator and Linux

Here my script to start the snapcreator gui during server startup. I'm using RHEL, so I deleted the init configuration for SLES. If you are using SLES, delete the RHEL init configuration. I never checked the SLES configuration, but iit should be run. Maybe you have to change a little bit for other distributions.

Be careul to use another running environment than root. Most Jobs will run but at least the vSphere plugin needs root priviledges because it is using icmp ping to check the availability of the vSphere server.

Re: SnapCreator and Linux

Hi Volker,

Thanks for contributing this. I added this to a github repository where all the Snap Creator source code is called SC-MISC. I hope this is ok? I put your name as author.

https://github.com/NetApp/SC-MISC/tree/main/scripts/start-scripts

If you are partner you can sign up for our developer community @ www.snapcreator.com. End customers still dont have hae access but we are working on adding this soon. In future if you have any other scripts or addons feel free to upload them to the SC-MISC repository in github.

Again thanks, this is really great!

Keith

I'm end customer, so I have no access, but it is no problem
