Detailed Steps

Follow these step by step instructions to get started with a single-server CloudMine deployment.

  1. Locate the Blueprint in the Blueprint Library.

    • Login to the Control Portal. From the Nav Menu on the left, click Orchestration > Blueprints Library.
    • Search for “CloudMine” in the keyword search on the right side of the page.
    • Click the “CloudMine Single Server” Blueprint.
  2. Choose the Blueprint.

    • Click the deploy blueprint button.
  3. Configure the Blueprint.
    Ensure the following options are configured.

    • Password/Confirm Password (This is the root password for the server. Keep this in a secure place).
    • Set DNS to “Manually Specify” and use “” (or any other public DNS server of your choice).
    • Optionally set the server name prefix.
    • Read and accept the CloudMine terms of service.
    • The default values are fine for every other option.
  4. Review and Confirm the Blueprint.

    • Click next: step 2.
    • Verify your configuration details.
  5. Deploy the Blueprint.

    • Once verified, click the deploy blueprint button.
    • You will see the deployment details along with an email stating the Blueprint is queued for execution.
    • This will kick off the Blueprint deploy process and load a page to allow you to track the progress of the deployment. Generally, it will take 15 to 20 minutes to configure all of the components.
  6. Monitor the Activity Queue.

    • Monitor the Deployment Queue to view the progress of the Blueprint.
    • To monitor progress, click Queue from the Nav Menu on the left.
  7. Get Busy!

    • Once the Blueprint completes successfully, you will receive an email stating that the Blueprint build is complete. Please do not use the application until you have received this email notification.

    • Once the process has completed ­ you will need to determine the public IP address for the newly deployed host. If you navigate to the “Servers” panel and look under “recent activity” you should see a status about “Mapping a Public IP”.

    • Note this public IP, it will be required in future steps.

    • Before navigating to the web interface, you will need to run a script on the server to let the server know what public IP address it was assigned. To do this, ssh into the public IP address as root, using the password set in Step 3.
