IBM Cloud Private - Tinkering with Vagrant
Twitter Google+ Facebook LinkedIn Addthis Email Gmail Flipboard Reddit Tumblr WhatsApp StumbleUpon Yammer Evernote Delicious
   

So I've been on a slow boat to IBM Cloud Private, over the past few weeks, and am continuing to self-enable in my "spare" time ( my formal enablement starts next week ).

Looking at this: -

IBM® Cloud Private architecture


it was clear that I really needed a few boxes onto which to actually install ICP.

Whilst it is possible to run everything on one box ( as per this IBM Cloud Private - My first foray ), I thought that I really should do things properly.

So, starting with Beast, which has 8 CPU cores, 32 GB RAM and a shed-load of disk, I decided to use Vagrant and Virtual Box to build out a few VMs, onto which I can then install/provision ICP.

PS As per the previous post, I'd already installed the right versions of Vagrant and Virtual Box

This is how I started: -

Create a directory into which I'm going to put my Vagrant configuration etc.

mkdir ~/foobar
cd ~/foobar

Create a default Vagrant configuration file - Vagrantfile

vagrant init

Amended the Vagrantfile to reflect my chosen Ubuntu image

Note - rather than the default of base - which isn't ever going to work :-)

sed -i'' 's/base/ubuntu/trusty64/g' Vagrantfile

Instantiate the VM

vagrant up

Bringing machine 'default' up with 'virtualbox' provider...
==> default: Box 'ubuntu/trusty64' could not be found. Attempting to find and install...
    default: Box Provider: virtualbox
    default: Box Version: >= 0
==> default: Loading metadata for box 'ubuntu/trusty64'
    default: URL: https://vagrantcloud.com/ubuntu/trusty64

    default: Warning: Remote connection disconnect. Retrying...
    default:

    default: this with a newly generated keypair for better security.
    default: 
    default: Inserting generated public key within guest...
    default: Removing insecure key from the guest if it's present...
    default: Key inserted! Disconnecting and reconnecting using new SSH key...
==> default: Machine booted and ready!
==> default: Checking for guest additions in VM...
    default: The guest additions on this VM do not match the installed version of
    default: VirtualBox! In most cases this is fine, but in rare cases it can
    default: prevent things such as shared folders from working properly. If you see
    default: shared folder errors, please make sure the guest additions within the
    default: virtual machine match the version of VirtualBox you have installed on
    default: your host and reload your VM.
    default: 
    default: Guest Additions Version: 4.3.36
    default: VirtualBox Version: 5.1
==> default: Mounting shared folders...
    default: /vagrant => /home/hayd/foobar

And off we go, ready to play

I did a brief test: -

ssh vagrant@127.0.0.1 -p 2222

to ensure that the VM was OK, but that's as far as I've got yet.

I need to assign some real IP addresses next time around, and then go for multiple VMs, perhaps bringing some automation to bear.

We shall see …..

IBM Cloud Private and Kubernetes - Coping files
Wed, Nov 22nd 2017 2:59p   Dave Hay
Whilst I have used docker cp numerous times to copy files from a running container to the host ( or vice versa ), I had the need to do the same with a container running in a Pod orchestrated by Kubernetes.The syntax for Docker is: -docker cp :/from-path /to-pathe.g.docker cp 97ee4c182ece:/opt/ibm/db2/V11.1/java/db2jcc4.jar .For containers running in Pods via Kubernetes, it's a little different.The first trick is to inspect the Pod: -kubectl get podNAME RE

I'm running through the process to deploy IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) 8.6 onto an IBM mainframe ….This is something that I've done a number of times before, since I first joined the (then) IBM Software Services for WebSphere team in late 2012.In essence, although the underlying hardware is the IBM z platform ( also known as LinuxOne in this guise ), I'm installing BPM etc. onto Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and Linux is ….

Installing IBM DB2 on Linux using IBM Installation Manager - Fun and Games
Wed, Nov 8th 2017 3:49p   Dave Hay
I've installed DB2 a million (!) times over the past 17 years, since I joined what was then IBM Software Group.However, I've almost always installed it using the DB2 installation binaries and response files.For a long time now, it's been packaged with IBM BPM, and other products, and thus suitable to be installed using IBM Installation Manager (IIM).So now I'm trying that ….One thing of which to be aware; DB2 is typically only ever installed as root, which means ( to me, at least ) that BP
