Quick Start: Linux

This section walks you through an example installation sequence on Linux, assuming a fresh install of Ubunto 16.04.


You need to first install Docker and Python:

sudo apt update
sudo apt-get install python
sudo apt-get install python-pip
pip install requests
sudo apt install -y docker.io
sudo systemctl start docker
sudo systemctl enable docker

Now, verify the docker version.

docker --version

Minikube & Kubectl

Install minikube and kubectl:

curl -Lo minikube
chmod +x minikube
sudo mv minikube /usr/local/bin/
curl -Lo kubectl https://storage.googleapis.com/kubernetes-release/release/$(curl -s https://storage.googleapis.com/kubernetes-release/release/stable.txt)/bin/linux/amd64/kubectl && chmod +x kubectl
curl -LO https://storage.googleapis.com/kubernetes-release/release/$(curl -s https://storage.googleapis.com/kubernetes-release/release/stable.txt)/bin/linux/amd64/kubectl
chmod +x ./kubectl
sudo mv ./kubectl /usr/local/bin/kubectl

Issue the following commands:

mkdir -p $HOME/.kube
touch $HOME/.kube/config

export KUBECONFIG=$HOME/.kube/config

Navigate to the /usr/local/bin/ directory and issue the following commands. Make sure there are no errors afterwards:

sudo -E ./minikube start --vm-driver=none

You can run

kubectl cluster-info

to verify that your Minikube cluster is up and running.

Export the KUBECONFIG File

Locate the KUBECONFIG file:

sudo updatedb
locate kubeconfig

Export a KUBECONFIG variable containing the path to the configuration file found above. For example, If your U file was located in the /var/lib/localkube/kubeconfig directory, the command you issue would look like this:

export KUBECONFIG=/var/lib/localkube/kubeconfig

Download CORD

There are two general ways you might download CORD. The following walks through both, but you need to follow only one. (For simplicity, we recommend the first.)

The first simply clones the CORD helm-chart repository using git. This is sufficient for downloading just the Helm charts you will need to deploy the set of containers that comprise CORD. These containers will be pulled down from DockerHub.

The second uses the repo tool to download all the source code that makes up CORD, including the Helm charts needed to deploy the CORD containers. You might find this useful if you want look at the interals of CORD more closely.

In either case, following these instructions will result in a directory ~/cord/helm-charts, which will be where you go next to continue the installation process.

Download: git clone

Create a CORD directory and run the following git command in it:

mkdir ~/cord
cd ~/cord
git clone https://gerrit.opencord.org/helm-charts
cd helm-charts

Download: repo

Make sure you have a bin/ directory in your home directory and that it is included in your path:

mkdir ~/bin

Download the Repo tool and ensure that it is executable:

curl https://storage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo > ~/bin/repo
chmod a+x ~/bin/repo

Make a /cord directory and navigate into it:

mkdir ~/cord
cd ~/cord

Configure git with your real name and email address:

git config --global user.name "Your Name"
git config --global user.email "you@example.com"

Initialize repo and download the CORD source tree to your working directory:

repo init -u https://gerrit.opencord.org/manifest -b master
repo sync


Run the Helm installer script that will automatically grab the latest version of the Helm client and install it locally:

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kubernetes/helm/master/scripts/get > get_helm.sh
chmod 700 get_helm.sh


Issue the following:

sudo helm init
sudo kubectl create serviceaccount --namespace kube-system tiller
sudo kubectl create clusterrolebinding tiller-cluster-rule --clusterrole=cluster-admin --serviceaccount=kube-system:tiller
sudo kubectl patch deploy --namespace kube-system tiller-deploy -p '{"spec":{"template":{"spec":{"serviceAccount":"tiller"}}}}'      
sudo helm init --service-account tiller --upgrade

Install socat to fix a port-forwarding error:

sudo apt-get install socat

Issue the following and make sure no errors come up:

helm ls

Deploy CORD Helm Charts

Deploy the Helm Charts corresponding to the xos-core, plus the service profiles base-kubernetes and demo-simpleexampleservice:

cd ~/cord/helm-charts
helm init
sudo helm dep update xos-core
sudo helm install xos-core -n xos-core
sudo helm dep update xos-profiles/base-kubernetes
sudo helm install xos-profiles/base-kubernetes -n base-kubernetes
sudo helm dep update xos-profiles/demo-simpleexampleservice
sudo helm install xos-profiles/demo-simpleexampleservice -n demo-simpleexampleservice

Use kubectl get pods to verify that all containers in the profile are successful and none are in the error state.

Note: It will take some time for the various helm charts to deploy and the containers to come online. The tosca-loadercontainer may error and retry several times as they wait for services to be dynamically loaded. This is normal, and eventually the tosca-loader containers will enter the completed state:
