1.5. Checking the System

After installing the LOCKSS system and downloading the LOCKSS Installer, prepare the system for running by typing:


in the lockss-installer directory.

The script will do its best to install any missing elements needed to run the LOCKSS cluster on the host machine. See the System Prerequisites document for required system elements.

  1. Check for Docker and install if missing.

  2. Check for the Local-Persist Docker volume plugin and install if missing.

  3. Ensure Docker Swarm is initialized and running.

  4. Check for a user lockss and create the lockss user and group if missing.
