Preparing Network:

Install “bridge-utils”

# sudo apt-get install bridge-utils

Now edit /etc/network/interfaces and setup a bridge using a static, private ip-address.

#cat /etc/network/interfaces

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
auto br0
iface br0 inet static
bridge_ports eth0
bridge_fd 0
bridge_hello 2
bridge_maxage 12
bridge_stp off

    #sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

    #brctl show

    bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces
    br0 8000.002215be747a no eth0

    Now setup the static ip-address ( and hostname in /etc/hosts. Please make sure that the hostname (cloud) does not appear in the line starting with

    #cat /etc/hosts localhost cloud cloud

    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts

    ::1 localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

    Preparing Storage:

    Install lvm2, nfs-kernel-server, iscsi-target and vblade.

    #apt-get install lvm2 nfs-kernel-server iscsitarget vblade

    Now prepare the dedicated partition to be used with lvm, then create a logical volume group “vol”.

    #pvcreate /dev/sda3


    PV VG Fmt Attr PSize PFree
    /dev/sda3 lvm2 — 186.23g 186.23g

    #vgcreate vol /dev/sda3

    Volume group “vol” successfully created


    VG #PV #LV #SN Attr VSize VFree
    vol 1 0 0 wz–n- 186.22g 186.22g

    Edit /etc/default/iscsitarget and set the iscsitarget to be started on boot-up.

    #cat /etc/default/iscsitarget


    Then start the iscsitarget and nfs-kernel-server services.

    #/etc/init.d/iscsitarget start

    #/etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server start

    Prepare Storage:

    For the openQRM Server Database backend we install “mysql-server”.

    #apt-get install -y mysql-server

    For sake of simplicity we have left the myslq-password empty.

    Prepare KVM:

    Install the “kvm” package.

    #apt-get install -y kvm

    Reading package lists… Done
    Building dependency tree
    Setting up qemu-kvm (0.12.3+noroms-0ubuntu9) …
    qemu-kvm start/running
    Setting up kvm (1:84+dfsg-0ubuntu16+0.12.3+noroms+0ubuntu9) …
    Processing triggers for libc-bin …
    ldconfig deferred processing now taking place

    Install openQRM:

    We build openQRM from the sources which are available in the openQRM Projects subversion repository.

    #sudo apt-get install -y subversion make

    Now checkout the openQRM sources from the svn repository.

    #svn co openqrm

    #cd openqrm/trunk/src/

    make” requires a working internet connection. If no internet is available on this system you

    can download the build-cache which will avoid any downloads using:


    All compilation results are cached by the openQRM build-system. To ensure all components are build correctly simply run “make” again. The second (and every further “make” run) will just takes a few seconds.

    Then run “make install”.

    #make install

    And finally initialize and start openQRM by “make start”.

    #make start

    Once initialization is complete, please configure your openQRM Server at: http://[server-ip-address]/openqrm/

    -> User: openqrm -> Password: openqrm

    make start” triggers a check for the openQRM runtime-dependencies which will install all additional required packages automatically. At first start the openQRM Server is initialized.

    Configure openQRM:

    Login to your openQRM Server at http://localhost/openqrm [http://localhost/openqrm] . User and password is “openqrm”.

    • First select the bridge-interface as the openQRM management network-device.
    • Then select “myslq” as the Database to use as the openQRM backend.
    • And then configure the Database connection credentials.

    The openQRM is now fully configured and will forward to the Datacenter Dashboard.
