Install Janssen Server Using Rancher Marketplace#

For this quick start we will use a single node Kubernetes install in docker with a self-signed certificate.


For a more generic setup, use Rancher UI to deploy the setup. For more options please follow this link.

Installation Steps#

  1. Provision a Linux 4 CPU, 16 GB RAM, and 50GB SSD VM with ports 443 and 80 open. Save the VM IP address. For development environments, the VM can be set up using VMWare Workstation Player or VirtualBox with Ubuntu 20.0.4 operating system running on VM.
  2. Install Docker.
  3. Execute
    docker run -d --restart=unless-stopped -p 80:80 -p 443:443 --privileged rancher/rancher:latest
    The final line of the returned text is the container-id, which you'll need for the next step.
  4. Execute the following command to get the boostrap password for login.
    docker logs  <container-id>  2>&1 | grep "Bootstrap Password:"
  5. Head to https://<VM-IP-ADDRESS-FROM-FIRST-STEP> and log in with the username admin and the password from the previous step. If you are logging into Rancher for the first time, you'll need to enter just the password, and on the next step, Rancher will ask you to reset your current password.
  6. Next you'll see the Rancher home page with a list of existing clusters. By default, the name of the newly created cluster would be local. Click on the cluster name to go to the dashboard.
  7. From the top-left menu expand Apps & Marketplace and click charts.
  8. Search for Gluu and begin your installation.
  9. During Step 1 of installation, be sure to select the Customize Helm options before install options.
  10. In Step 2, customize the settings for the Janssen installation. Specifically Optional Services from where you can enable Janssen modules.
  11. In Step 3, unselect the Wait option and start the installation.
