Installing the inSync Server on Linux

Before you begin

Make sure that:

  • You have root privileges on the computer on which you plan to install the Master server.
  • The MySQL database you plan to use for inSync Private Cloud is running.
  • You downloaded the Master server installation package (.deb for Ubuntu and .rpm for RHEL) on the computer on which you want to install it.
NoteNote: The Master server installer also creates a local storage node. The behavior of this storage node is identical to that of storage nodes that are created manually. You can add storage to the local storage node. For information about creating additional storage nodes, see Creating additional storage nodes.

Installation Procedure

This section contains instructions for installing the Master server on Linux computers. 

For Ubuntu

From the directory that contains the .deb package, run the following command:

sudo dpkg -i <package_name>


From the directory that contains the .rpm package, run the following command:

rpm -ivh <package_name>
Note: In these commands, <package_name> represents the file name (along with the extension) of the installer.

Post-installation configuration

Launch the inSync server initial configuration wizard using the following command:

Note: The file is located at: /opt/Druva/inSyncCloudServer/sbin

On the configuration wizard

  1. Setup MySQL Server by specifying the following information:
    • MySQL Hostname: The IP address of the MySQL database. If the MySQL database is on the same computer, use instead of localhost.
    • Port: The port used for connecting to the MySQL database. The default value is 3306.
    • Username: The MySQL account username.
    • Password: The MySQL account password.
  2. Create the first administrator account for inSync by specifying the following information:
    • Administrator Name: The name of the first administrator.
    • Email ID: The email ID of the first administrator.
    • Administrator Password: The password of the first administrator.
    • Confirm Password: Repeat the password for the administrator.
    • Port Number for inSync Web Console: The port for accessing the inSync Admin Console. The default value is 443.
  3. Click Finish.
Note: As a good practice, do not change the password of the MySQL user after you configure the Master server. However, if you do change the password, configure the Master server again. After the configuration completes, manually stop and start all the Master server services.
