Ubuntu/Debian: Offline

Overview

The installation process involves downloading dependencies (deb packages) to an intermediate server with Internet access and copying them to the target server for offline installation.

Supported Versions

  • Ubuntu 16.04
  • Debian 8.x/9.x

Requirements

  • Minimum RAM: 2 GB
  • See Requirements for additional information.

Installation Steps

Add jessie-backports repository. This command is required only for Debian 8.x (jessie).

sudo sh -c 'echo deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main \
>> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/backports.list'

Enable the axibase.com/public/repository/deb/ repository on the server with Internet access:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com \
--recv-keys 26AEE425A57967CFB323846008796A6514F3CB79
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://axibase.com/public/repository/deb/ ./" \
>> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/axibase.list'

Update the repository.

sudo apt-get update

Download the ATSD package, including its dependencies, to the dependencies directory.

mkdir ~/dependencies
cd ~/dependencies
apt-get download atsd $(apt-cache depends --recurse --no-recommends --no-suggests \
  --no-conflicts --no-breaks --no-replaces --no-enhances \
  atsd | grep "Depends" | cut -d ":" -f2 | grep "^\ \w" | grep -v file-rc)

Download newer ca-certificates-java. This step is required only for Debian 8.x (jessie).

rm ca-certificates-java*
apt-get -t jessie-backports download ca-certificates-java

Make sure that the download directory is not empty:

...
libtinfo5_5.9+20140913-1+b1_amd64.deb
lsb-base_4.1+Debian13+nmu1_all.deb
mount_2.25.2-6_amd64.deb
net-tools_1.60-26+b1_amd64.deb
procps_2%3a3.3.9-9_amd64.deb
sensible-utils_0.0.9_all.deb
startpar_0.59-3_amd64.deb
sysvinit-utils_2.88dsf-59_amd64.deb
sysv-rc_2.88dsf-59_all.deb
zlib1g_1%3a1.2.8.dfsg-2+b1_amd64.deb

Copy the dependencies directory to the target server where you plan to install ATSD.

Install dependencies.

ls dependencies/* | grep -v "atsd" | xargs sudo dpkg -i

Sample output:

...

Install ATSD.

sudo dpkg -i dependencies/atsd*

It may take up to 5 minutes to initialize the database.
