Install NetQ Using the CLI

After you have validated the prerequisites and performed the preparation steps, you can then install the NetQ software using the CLI.

You must perform the preparation steps before installing the NetQ software. Go to Prepare for NetQ On-premises Installation or Prepare for NetQ Cloud Installation if you have not yet completed these preparation steps.

To install NetQ:

  1. Log in to your NetQ platform server, NetQ Appliance, NetQ Cloud Appliance or the master node of your cluster.

  2. Install the software.

    • For On-premises Solution, Single Server

      Run the following command on your NetQ platform server or NetQ Appliance:

      cumulus@<hostname>:~$ netq install standalone full interface eth0 bundle /mnt/installables/NetQ-2.4.1.tgz
      

      You can specify the IP address instead of the interface name here: use ip-addr <IP address> in place of interface eth0 above.

    • For On-premises Solution, Server Cluster

      Run the following commands on your master node, using the IP addresses of your worker nodes:

      cumulus@<hostname>:~$ netq install cluster full interface eth0 bundle /mnt/installables/NetQ-2.4.1.tgz workers <worker-1-ip> <worker-2-ip>
      

      You can specify the IP address instead of the interface name here: use ip-addr <IP address> in place of interface eth0 above.

    • For Cloud Solution, Single Server

      Run the following command on your NetQ Cloud Appliance with the config-key sent by Cumulus Networks in an email titled “A new site has been added to your Cumulus NetQ account.”

      cumulus@<hostname>:~$ netq install opta standalone full interface eth0 bundle /mnt/installables/NetQ-2.4.1-opta.tgz config-key <your-config-key-from-email> proxy-host <proxy-hostname> proxy-port <proxy-port>
      

      You can specify the IP address instead of the interface name here: use ip-addr <IP address> in place of interface eth0 above.

    • For Cloud Solution, Server Cluster

      Run the following commands on your master NetQ Cloud Appliance with the config-key sent by Cumulus Networks in an email titled “A new site has been added to your Cumulus NetQ account.”

      cumulus@<hostname>:~$ netq install opta cluster full interface eth0 bundle /mnt/installables/NetQ-2.4.1-opta.tgz config-key <your-config-key-from-email> workers <worker-1-ip> <worker-2-ip> proxy-host <proxy-hostname> proxy-port <proxy-port>
      

      You can specify the IP address instead of the interface name here: use ip-addr <IP address> in place of interface eth0 above.
