Converting a Stock Debian Installation to a CanIt Appliance
Some virtual environments such as Xen or LXC make it hard or impossible to install from an ISO image. For those environments, you can install a stock Debian system and then convert it to a CanIt appliance.
To create an appliance from stock Debian, follow these steps:
Install a minimal Debian Jessie image (Debian version 8.)
Edit the file
/etc/apt/sources.list to contain only the following line:
If you are installing CanIt-PRO:
deb http://name:firstname.lastname@example.org/canit/appliance jessie main canit canit-pro
If you are installing CanIt-Domain-PRO:
deb http://name:email@example.com/canit/appliance jessie main canit canit-pro canit-domain-pro
In both cases,
name is your RPTN download username and
pass is the corresponding password.
First, make sure the
aptitude command is installed by running:
apt-get update ; apt-get install aptitude
If you are installing CanIt-PRO, run the following command:
aptitude install canit-pro-distro canit-log-correlator
If you are installing CanIt-Domain-PRO, run the following command:
aptitude install canit-domain-pro-distro canit-log-correlator
If aptitude asks for an opinion about the installation, accept the first set of options it presents.
