Quick Installation Guide

Debian and Ubuntu

Installation script installs all components of OpenNMS on a single machine and is ready to run. This setup works for most small environments. If you want a more customized installation, please see our installation guide.

The installation script is tested with Debian 9 "Stretch", Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

The script requires systemd, sudo, gnupg, curl and wget to get OpenNMS Horizon installed on a minimal Debian system. On Ubuntu ensure you have added the universe repository with add-apt-repository universe.

curl -L https://github.com/opennms-forge/opennms-install/archive/1.3.tar.gz | tar xz
cd opennms-install-1.3
bash bootstrap-debian.sh

OpenNMS can be started with systemctl {start,stop} opennms. The webapplication is available on http://your-host:8980/opennms. Default login for the webapplication is admin with password admin. Please change the default password immediately to a safe password by click on the user name in the top right navigation and choose Change Password.
