Install Remediate on offline nodes
If any of your swarm nodes are offline (do not have external connectivity), you must manually import the Puppet Remediate images in order to install the product.
Prior to installing Remediate on any offline nodes, check that you have carried out the following prerequisite tasks:
- Make sure you meet the system requirements for installing and running Remediate, and that you have received your license.
- Ensure that Docker and Docker Compose are installed on the nodes where you want to install the Remediate images. If you are installing Docker Compose on Windows, ensure that you create a new Windows environment variable called COMPOSE_CONVERT_WINDOWS_PATHS and set it to 1. This enables path conversion from Windows-style to Unix-style in volume definitions.
- Ensure that your license is added to the nodes where you want to install the Remediate images.
Remediate may fail to start in offline (
--offline) mode if the Docker host is unable to reach its configured DNS server. Please ensure that you have DNS configured correctly.
To install Remediate on nodes that do not have network connectivity:
On a node with internet connectivity:
Note: Skip this step if you are using your own custom Docker registry.
- Download the offline Remediate image bundle (https://storage.googleapis.com/remediate/stable/latest/offline/images.tar.gz)
- Download the offline docker-compose.yml file (https://storage.googleapis.com/remediate/stable/latest/offline/docker-compose.yml)
Optionally, you can verify the image bundle and offline
docker-compose.yml files signatures:
With each Puppet Remediate release, a digital signature is created using the private key portion of an asymmetric key. You can manually validate the signature using the public key portion of the same asymmetric key.
- Download the offline docker-compose.yml file signature and the image bundle signature, along with the public key to the same directory as your license file.
Run the following commands:
openssl dgst -sha256 -verify puppet-remediate-signing-key.pub -signature docker_compose_signature docker-compose.yml
openssl dgst -sha256 -verify puppet-remediate-signing-key.pub -signature images_signature images.tar.gz
If the signature is valid, you get the following response for each command:
- Copy the Remediate image bundle and offline docker-compose.yml file to the offline node where you want to install Remediate.
On the node where you want to install Remediate, initialize a swarm by running the
docker swarm init
Run the Docker
docker load -i images.tar.gz
Use the following command to start Remediate (replacing your-license.json with your own
docker-compose run remediate start -o --license-file ./your-license.json
To check that the containers have started
running, run this command:
