An “airgapped” environment is a network that has no path to inbound or outbound internet traffic at all. Some enterprise customers require that you ship a package they can install in their airgapped environment.
Replicated supports this type of installation, using the following steps:
The customer will be responsible for delivering a server running a supported version of Docker. Replicated supports Docker from 1.7.1 to 17.06.2-ce. We recommend that you use the latest version of Docker available in this range for your operating system.
The Replicated airgap installation script does not install docker-engine. We’ve written a guide with some tips that might help get Docker installed into air gapped machines with various operating systems.
Replicated can be installed by downloading the latest release from https://s3.amazonaws.com/replicated-airgap-work/replicated.tar.gz and running the following commands:
tar xzvf replicated.tar.gz cat ./install.sh | sudo bash -s airgap
tar xzvf replicated.tar.gz cat ./swarm-init.sh | sudo bash -s airgap
On the license properties page in the vendor portal, enable Airgap installations for this license and copy the
download link. This URL is designed to be delivered to that customer. They will use this link to download
current airgap packages when you promote a release. When they download new airgap packages to their server,
it is important that your customer set the
--content-disposition flags for
or rename the file to something ending with
Your customer will need the
.airgap package and the normal Replicated license (.rli) file. Be sure to download
the license file after enabling the airgap feature on the license. Airgap-enabled licenses have more metadata
embedded than non-airgap licenses. Airgap enabled licenses can be used to install in non-airgap mode, but
non-airgap licenses cannot be used to install in airgap mode.
Next, navigate to the management console at https://
Once this screen is completed, Replicated runs as normal. In the :8800/console/settings page, there is a section to set the Airgap mode settings. You can install updates and sync the license by downloading new versions of these, renaming them with the .airgap extension and placing them in the locations specified on the /console/settings page.
In order to add additional nodes to your cluster, just navigate to the Cluster page of the Admin Console, click the “Add Node” button, and follow the instructions there. For more detailed instructions see the add nodes page of the docs.
