  • A DHCP Server

Install Web Application

sudo su

yum install epel-release
rpm --import "http://keyserver.ubuntu.com/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF"

wget "https://sourceforge.net/projects/clonedeploy/files/CloneDeploy 1.3.0/clonedeploy-1.3.0.tar.gz"
tar xvzf clonedeploy-1.3.0.tar.gz
cd clonedeploy
cp clonedeploy.conf /etc/httpd/conf.d/
mkdir /var/www/html/clonedeploy
cp -r frontend /var/www/html/clonedeploy
cp -r api /var/www/html/clonedeploy
cp -r tftpboot /
ln -s ../../images /tftpboot/proxy/bios/images
ln -s ../../images /tftpboot/proxy/efi32/images
ln -s ../../images /tftpboot/proxy/efi64/images
ln -s ../../kernels /tftpboot/proxy/bios/kernels
ln -s ../../kernels /tftpboot/proxy/efi32/kernels
ln -s ../../kernels /tftpboot/proxy/efi64/kernels
mkdir -p /cd_dp/images
mkdir /cd_dp/resources
mkdir /var/www/.mono
chown -R apache:apache /tftpboot /cd_dp /var/www/html/clonedeploy /var/www/.mono
chmod 1777 /tmp
chkconfig httpd on

Install Database

Change cduser and mypass to something else.

echo "[mariadb]
name = MariaDB
baseurl = http://yum.mariadb.org/10.2/centos7-amd64
gpgcheck=1" >> /etc/yum.repos.d/MariaDB.repo
yum -y install mariadb-server
service mariadb start
chkconfig mariadb on
create database clonedeploy;
CREATE USER 'cduser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'mypass';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON clonedeploy.* TO 'cduser'@'localhost';
mysql clonedeploy < cd.sql -v

If an error comes up about line 1929 it can be ignored.
Open /var/www/html/clonedeploy/api/Web.config with a text editor and change the following values:

xx_marker1_xx to your cduser database password you created earlier
On that same line change Uid=root to Uid=cduser
xx_marker2_xx to some random characters(alphanumeric only), probably should be a minimum of 8

service httpd restart

Install Samba Server

yum -y install samba
groupadd cdsharewriters
useradd cd_share_ro
useradd cd_share_rw -G cdsharewriters
usermod -a -G cdsharewriters apache

The following two commands will prompt you to create passwords for the smb share for a read only user and a read write user. Remember these passwords, you will need them again during the Web Interface Initial Setup.

smbpasswd -a cd_share_ro
smbpasswd -a cd_share_rw
echo "[cd_share]
path = /cd_dp
valid users = @cdsharewriters, cd_share_ro
create mask = 02775
directory mask = 02775
guest ok = no
writable = yes
browsable = yes
read list = @cdsharewriters, cd_share_ro
write list = @cdsharewriters
force create mode = 02775
force directory mode = 02775
force group = +cdsharewriters" >> /etc/samba/smb.conf
chown -R apache:cdsharewriters /cd_dp
chmod -R 2775 /cd_dp
service smb restart
chkconfig smb on

Install TFTP Server

yum -y install tftpd-server
echo "TFTP_USERNAME=\"root\"
TFTP_OPTIONS=\"-s\"" > /etc/default/tftpd-hpa
service tftp restart
chkconfig tftp on
