Install the First Node

  1. Install the first node. The installation is identical to the single node installation.

    Warning

    Do not start the Insight service.

  2. Configure the system.yaml file with the database and first node configuration details. For example,

    First node system.yaml

    shared:
      database:
        type: postgresql
        driver: org.postgresql.Driver
        url: jdbc:postgresql://<ip:port>/insight?sslmode=disable
        username: <username>
        password: <password>
      jfrogUrl: <JFrog URL>
      security:
        joinKey: <Artifactory Join Key>
  3. Start and manage the Insight service.

    systemd OS

    systemctl start|stop insight.service

    Systemv OS

    service insight start|stop
  4. Access Insight from your browser at: http://<jfrogUrl>/ui/ and go to the Dashboard tab in the Application module in the UI.

  5. Check the Insight log.

    Linux

    tail -f $JFROG_HOME/insight/var/log/console.log
Install Additional Nodes

For a node to join a cluster, the node must have the same database configuration and the master key. Install all additional nodes using the same steps described above, with the following additional steps:

  1. Configure the system.yamlfile for the additional node with master key, database and active node configurations.

    For example:

    Additional node system.yaml

    shared:
      database:
        type: postgresql
        driver: org.postgresql.Driver
        url: jdbc:postgresql://<ip:port>/insight?sslmode=disable
        username: <username>
        password: <password>
      jfrogUrl: <JFrog URL>
      security:
        joinKey: <Artifactory Join Key>
      # Configure the following property values when Elasticsearch is installed from the bundled Insight package.
      elasticsearch:
        clusterSetup: "YES"
        unicastFile: "$JFROG_HOME/insight/data/elasticsearch/config/unicast_hosts.txt"
  2. Copy the master.key from the first node to the additional node located at $JFROG_HOME/insight/var/etc/security/master.key.

  3. Add the username and password as configured for Elasticsearch on master node on the additional node too. Add it to the Shared Configurations section in $JFROG_HOME/insight/var/etc/system.yaml file.

  4. Copy <ES_PATH>config/transport.p12 file from primary to the secondary nodes before starting Elasticsearch.

  5. Start the additional node.

  6. Access Insight from your browser at: http://<jfrogUrl>/ui/ and go to the Dashboard tab in the Application module in the UI.

  7. Check the Insight log.
