CHI-in-a-Box QuickStart

This artifact demonstrates the general process for setting up a Chameleon Associate Site via CHI-in-a-Box.

Check out the full QuickStart guide on the CHI-in-a-Box wiki for more detailed information. This artifact serves as an interactive companion to that documentation.

With this appliance you will:

  • Reserve a bare metal node on Chameleon along with 2 Floating IPs. One will be used as your "out of band" and SSH access and the other will provide all of the CHI services.
  • Deploy a CentOS 8 image on to your reserved node and configure it for 2 network addresses.
  • Generate a TLS certificate via LetsEncrypt to secure the exposed service endpoints.
  • Clone the CHI-in-a-Box provisioning code, configure your QuickStart site, and deploy the CHI services to the node.
