The commands for a GA install of RightLink in a Ubuntu environment are included below.
For Debian-derived systems, maintain an automatic, pooled apt repository.
First, import RightScale public key:
# Import RightScale public key curl http://mirror.rightscale.com/rightlink/rightscale.pub | apt-key add - # Create an apt source, ensuring that you specify the right architecture and release code name. # For instance, on an amd64 system that is running: # Ubuntu 12.04 (precise) cat > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rightlink.sources.list <<EOF deb [arch=amd64] http://mirror.rightscale.com/rightlink/apt precise main deb-src [arch=amd64] http://mirror.rightscale.com/rightlink/apt precise main EOF # Ubuntu 14.04 (raring) cat > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rightlink.sources.list <<EOF deb [arch=amd64] http://mirror.rightscale.com/rightlink/apt trusty main deb-src [arch=amd64] http://mirror.rightscale.com/rightlink/apt trusty main EOF
Next, install RightLink cloud support package for the cloud type your instance is running on.
RightLink 6 Supports the following cloud types:
|Cloud Type||Nickname||Support package|
|Google Compute Engine||gce||rightlink6-cloud-gce|
|vSphere Cloud Appliance (VMware)||vsphere||rightlink6-cloud-vsphere|
RightLink packages are grouped into major versions, such as rightlink6-cloud-ec2/rightlink6-sandbox/rightlink6 and rightlink5-cloud-ec2/rightlink5-sandbox/rightlink5. It is recommended to use the latest major version. Only the oldest point release for each major version is available at any time off the mirrors. Upgrading between major versions is not supported. RightLink 5 packages are named similarly to RightLink 6 packages, except for google being renamed to gce, and the addition of vsphere.
Example for Amazon EC2:
apt-get update apt-get install rightlink6-cloud-ec2
You can now bundle your image and boot RightScale servers with it.
