Manually install OS and WEKA on servers

This requirement only applies when manually preparing and installing the WEKA cluster on bare metal servers.

If you are not using the WMS or WSA automated tools for installing a WEKA cluster, manually install a supported OS and the WEKA software on the bare metal server.

Procedure

  1. Follow the relevant Linux documentation to install the operating system, including the required packages.

Required packages

RHEL and derivativesUbuntu
elfutils-libelf-devel
gcc
glibc-headers
glibc-devel
make
perl
rpcbind
xfsprogs
kernel-devel
libelf-dev
linux-headers-$(uname -r)
gcc
make
perl
python2-minimal
rpcbind
xfsprogs
  1. Install the WEKA software.

    • Once the WEKA software tarball is downloaded from get.weka.io, run the untar command.

    • Run the install.sh command on each server, according to the instructions in the Install tab.

Once completed, the WEKA software is installed on all the allocated servers and runs in stem mode (no cluster is attached).

If a failure occurs during the WEKA software installation process, an error message prompts detailing the source of the failure. Review the details and try to resolve the failure. If required, contact the Customer Success Team.
