Access deployment wizard

Content Intelligence Installation Guide

Part Number

After creating all of your instances, you need to go to the service deployment wizard in the Admin App.

Important: You cannot change networking or volume settings for System services at this point.

Alternatively, if you configured the System services networking incorrectly, the Admin App might fail to appear. This can happen, for example, if the network.config file is not identical on all instances. For error information, view the file install_path/hci/config/cluster.config or the output information logged by the run script.

To fix this issue, do the following:

  1. Stop the run script. You can do this using whatever method you're currently using to run the script.
  2. Run this command to stop all HCI Docker containers on the instance:

    sudo install_path/hci/bin/stop

  3. Delete the contents of the folder install_path/hci from all instances.
  4. Delete any Docker volumes created during the installation:

    docker volume rm volume-name

  5. Begin the installation again from Unpack the installation package.

To access the service deployment wizard:

  1. Open a web browser and go to: https://instance_ip_address:8000
  2. On the Welcome page, set a password for the admin user account. Then click Set Admin Password.
    Important: Do not lose or forget this password.
  3. On the Licensing page:
    • If you have your purchased license file, drag and drop it into the Upload License section.
    • If you've purchased a license but have not yet received it, make note of the value in the System ID section on the Licensing page and contact your sales representative.
    • To use the system for a limited amount of time with the pre-installed trial license, click Continue.
    • If for some reason the trial license failed to install, there is a copy included in the HCI-<version-number>.tgz installation package that you can upload to the Licensing page. The trial license is located in the installation package at:


  4. On the Set Cluster Hostname/IP page, specify the hostname for your system. Omitting this can cause links in the Admin App to function incorrectly.
  5. On the Choose Deployment page, select the HCI deployment type that you purchased, either Hitachi Content Search or HCM. Then click Continue.
  6. The Confirm Cluster Topology page shows all detected instances. If your system includes multiple instances, make sure that all instances that you expect to see are listed.
