Chapter 1. Verifying hosts

This chapter describes how to use the zenoss-installer script to verify hosts for their roles in a Control Center deployment. In addition, this chapter includes procedures for preparing required filesystems on the master host.

The verify action of the zenoss-installer script performs read-only tests of the compute, memory, operating system, and storage resources of a host. The verify action is intended for iterative useā€”run the script, correct an error, and then run the script again. You can perform the verify action as many times as you wish without affecting the host.

The zenoss-installer is updated regularly. Please download the latest version before creating a new deployment of Control Center. The script is not needed on Zenoss Resource Manager or Zenoss Community Edition (Core) virtual appliances.
