The CentOS, RHEL, and OL OpsCenter packaged releases create an opscenter user. OpsCenter runs as a service and runs as this user. The service initialization script is located in /etc/init.d. If the OpsCenter machine reboots, OpsCenter restarts automatically.

Procedure

  1. Open the Yum repository specification /etc/yum.repos.d for editing. For example:
    $ sudo vi /etc/yum.repos.d/datastax.repo
  2. In this file, add the repository for OpsCenter.
    [opscenter] 
    name = DataStax Repository
    baseurl = http://rpm.datastax.com/community
    enabled = 1
    gpgcheck = 0
  3. Install the OpsCenter package.
    $ sudo yum install opscenter

For most users, the out-of-box configuration should work just fine, but if you need to you can configure OpsCenter differently.

  1. Start OpsCenter:
    $ sudo service opscenterd start
  2. Connect to OpsCenter in a web browser using the following URL:
    http://opscenter-host:8888/
  3. Next you can add an existing cluster or provision a new one.
