Master Server as a Software Appliance

The Enterprise Recon Master Server is a software appliance. This means that the Master Server installer includes an operating system (CentOS 7). You do not have to install the operating system separately when installing the Master Server.

Instead, load the ISO image on bootable media such as a USB stick or a DVD, and use it to install the Master Server directly on bare-metal or a virtual machine.

See Install ER2 On a Virtual Machine for instructions on installing ER2 on a virtual machine.

Download the Installer

The installer is a bootable ISO image that installs the Master Server with the CentOS 7-based operating system on your machine.

  1. Log in to the Ground Labs Services Portal.
  2. From the Home tab, go to the Enterprise Recon 2.6.0 section and click Download to download the Enterprise Master Package Appliance ISO file.

Run the Installer

To perform a standard installation of the ER2 Master Server:
