Manage Peers

Once you have installed PeerOS and created peers, you can access them through a CLI terminal, the Management Console, or Control Center. With secure access to your peers, you can perform the following tasks:

Access and manage peers through the Management Console

During peer creation, the modules of the Management software and its Console are installed and set up. At the end of peer creation, the default Console credentials are displayed: Console IP address or URL, login ID, and password. Use the IP address and port number to access from a browser. After your initial login, you are prompted to assign a password of your choice. For detailed instructions, see How to access the Management Console.

Here are some peer admin tasks that you can perform on the Management Console:

  • Register peers with Bazaar
  • Verify the current state or health of your peers
  • Create and monitor environments and containers on your peers
  • Modify resource host parameters

For instructions on how to perform these tasks, see Management Console.

Manage peers using the Subutai Control Center

Compared with the Subutai Console, the Control Center application provides you with tools that you can install and access from your desktop. You can create and manage peers, as well as maintain environments and their containers. Get more information about the Control Center here.

Register peers with Bazaar

Peer registration can be done with the REST API request:

POST /rest/v1/bazaar/register

The table below lists the required parameters to complete your registration. To learn more about this REST API, see Register Peer with Bazaar.

Users who need the convenience of a user interface can use the Subutai Console or the Control Center. Regardless of your choice, you need to provide the following information:

Registration data (via form) Parameter (via REST API) Description
Email email Email address for the Bazaar account
Password password Bazaar account password
Peer name peerName Unique name given to the peer
Peer scope peerScope Scope of peer use or exposure: private, public, or shared

Update resource hosts and other components

Other maintenance tasks within PeerOS include performing updates to resource hosts, management software, and components. You can use these commands on a CLI terminal with SSH access to the peer:

  • Update resource host subutai update rh
  • Update management host subutai update management
  • Update packages within your peer apt-get dist-upgrade

If you have the Control Center installed, you can perform updates from the Updates tab under Menu > Settings. Check for available updates and then perform them one at a time. For detailed instructions, see Control Center Updates.
