|After you finish they deployment, you should update your server and apply any latest patch. Check out this article to learn how: How to update the Teramind Server (On-Premise / Private Cloud deployment).|
As the last step of the deployment process, you will need to assign the IAM role to your instance, setup the Teramind Server using the SSH and finally, configure your account settings on the Teramind Dashboard to make sure it’s working properly.
Accessing the IAM Role Screen
Go to the Instances screen from your EC2 Management Console. Make sure the instance you want to use is selected.
Click the Actions button on top of the instance names.
From the drop-down menu, select Instance Settings > Attach/Replace IAM Role.
Assigning the IAM Role to Your Instance
On the ‘Attach/Replace IAM Role’ screen, click the IAM role pull-down menu and select the IAM you created in the previous steps. For example, Testrole.
Click Apply to assign the IAM to the selected instance.
Specifying the Machine Role and Database IP
Go back to the command prompt window you used at the end of Step 1.
At the Role (master) prompt, enter a name. For example: master
On the use external database? prompt, enter Yes.
Supply the RDS database IP / hostname, username and password you created before.
Press Enter when done.
Teramind will initialize the database, tables and required indexes automatically.
Specifying the S3 Storage Details
After Teramind has finished the database initialization, it will ask, Use S3 for storing data? Type Yes.
Type Yes to the Create new buckets? prompt.
You will be prompted to enter names for three buckets: one for screen recordings, one for user content i.e. attachments or printer docs, and the third one for application objects.
Enter a unique name for each bucket and press Enter. See the S3 Bucket Naming Rules notes below for more information on the bucket naming rules.
The S3 buckets must have names that conform with the naming requirements for non-US Standard regions. Amazon S3 defines a bucket name as a series of one or more labels, separated by periods, that must adhere to the following rules:
- The bucket name can be between 3 and 63 characters long, and can contain only lower-case characters, numbers, periods and dashes.
- Each label in the bucket name must start with a lowercase letter or number.
- The bucket name cannot contain underscores, end with a dash, have consecutive periods or use dashes adjacent to periods.
- The bucket name cannot be formatted as an IP address i.e. 198.51.100.24.
Finishing the SSH Session
When the server setup is done, you will be presented with a https link. For example, https://220.127.116.11/.
Click this link to continue or enter the link in a new browser window.
Accessing the Teramind Server
When open the Teramind Server link, you might see a warning message on your browser saying the connection is not private or secure. This is normal. The warning is shown because you haven’t assigned any SSL certificate to your server yet. You can upload your own certificate later from the Teramind dashboard.
If you are using Google Chrome, you can click the Advanced button on the warning page and then click the Proceed to link to continue. Other browsers have similar options to bypass the warning.
Setting the Language and Timezone
Once on the Teramind dashboard page, you will be greeted with a Welcome screen. You can select your default language and time zone from this screen.
Click CONTINUE to go to the next screen.
Setting Up Your Admin Account
You will now be able to enter your email and password to be used as your Administrator’s account. Enter the information and click CONTINUE to go to the next screen.
Getting Your License Key
Open a new browser tab and go to: https://www.teramind.co/portal. Login with the admin email and password.
Click the Licenses tab.
From the list of licenses, click the Key link under the Actions column. A pop-up will display the license key.
Copy the license key or write it down.
Entering the License Key
Go back to your Teramind Dashboard. Enter the license key in the YOUR LICENSE KEY field.
