Initial setup

Procedure: Login and update the system
  1. SSH into your AWS instance.

  2. Switch to the root user and update the system.

    sudo -i
    zypper refresh
    zypper update
  3. Configure storage with the suma-storage tool. For help see: suma-storage --help This tool simplifies creating the storage disk device and database device.

Use lsblk to see the names of your disk devices. You will see a list of partitions that were created when we configured the AWS image.

  • Root partition 100 GB

  • Spacewalk storage 500 GB

  • Database storage 80 GB

    1. Format the command in the following manner:

      suma-storage <storage-disk-device> [<database-disk-device>]
      #For example:
      suma-storage /dev/nvme1n1 /dev/nvme2n1

      This command will create the following storage locations:

      ``` /manager_storage /manager_storage/spacewalk ```
      ``` /var/spacewalk /var/cache/rhn /var/lib/spacewalk ```
