The purpose of this document is to describe how the different pieces of Ulteo OVD are supported on Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) system.
Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) is the latest LTS version of Ubuntu. There are several editions: desktop/server, 32/64 bits. This documentation has been done for the server edition (32/64 bits) but it should also work with the desktop edition. The Ubuntu operating system can be downloaded here.
Ubuntu is a Debian-based system which uses the same packaging system and tools: apt-get. So you need to have an internet connection on your Ubuntu system and add an Ulteo Debian repository to your system.
Get this archive from the Ulteo website or from the Ulteo OVD DVD and copy it in the /root of your machine.
# tar xzf ubuntu-lucid.tar.gz
deb file:///root/ubuntu-lucid lucid main
# apt-get install ulteo-ovd-session-manager
The installer asks for an admin login
And a password:
which has to be confirmed:
According to the Archictecture documentation, a Susbsystem archive can be installed on the SM to simplify the Application Servers' deployements.
If you don't have access to Internet or do not want to use Subsystems, keep this field empty.
The server is now installed but not configured yet. You have to open http://sm.ulteo.com/ovd/admin with a web browser. It should display this page:
The first step is to go to http://sm.ulteo.com/ovd/admin and authenticate yourself with the login and password you provided during installation.
For the first time you log in, the system detects that it is not well configured so you are redirected to a basic setup page which will save a default configuration.
You have to set the MySQL configuration. For instance, if you install MySQL on the same host as described previously, here is the configuration:
Then, you should be redirected to the main page:
The Session Manager is now installed. Please read other documentations to join servers or start sessions.
# apt-get install ulteo-ovd-subsystem
The only question is about the host/IP address where the session manager can be accessed (we use sm.ulteo.com here for the example, but of course, you have to set your own domain name).
The configuration is now done. The system is going to donwload and uncompress the application system archive from the Session Manager your registered.
Once done, you just have to restart the service:
# /etc/init.d/ulteo-ovd-subsystem restart
The server redirection name is optional. If all your machines are in the same network, you don't have to change it.
The redirection name is used to launch sessions. When you launch a session, you are redirected to an Application Server using the redirection name as target host. In some cases the default redirection name is not valid. For instance, if you set up a private IP address and you want to connect to your Application Server from the internet.
The Ulteo OVD Web client is no longer installed with the Session Manager as it was on previous versions (version number < 3.0). So you have to install it manually on any server you want. Of course, it's possible to install it on the same machine as the Session Manager.
# apt-get install ulteo-ovd-web-client
If you answered yes at the previous question, you now have to provide the Session Manager an host/IP address. In our example: sm.ulteo.com.
Using you web browser, go to http://web.ulteo.com/ovd/, you should see a login page:
