This tutorial will guide through the process of configuring a SlapOS
node and show how to provide instances of software services. The services available
depend on the software releases available on the SlapOS Master
(create a software release, add
software release to SlapOS Master).
The process of installing and supplying a service is the same for all software releases
and only described once here. After a service has been made available, users
can request instances of this service, called hosting subscriptions. These
will be installed on computer partitions on a chosen node and accessible only by the requesting user.
The tutorial applies to configuration of both COMP-0 and
COMP-1,2,3... (SlapOS architecture).
In case of required follow-up steps, like on installation of the Re6st Registry on COMP-0, these
will also be pointed out and linked to here.
The tutorial requires you to have a computer with a SlapOS node
installed and ready to use as well as an account on a SlapOS Master. This can
be Vifib (how to register
on vifib) or a any other master (tutorial to create a SlapOS Master).
