This section details a recommended installation of the IBM OSSLM Ansible Resource Manager. Pre-requisites Kubernetes A Kubernetes cluster is required to install the Ansible RM. This environment must be configured with: a Storage Class to provision persistent volumes in your cluster a Namespace to install into (you may use the default) In addition, you will need the following client tools, pre-configured with access to your Kubernetes environment: »


Existing Storage Services Ansible RM requires a connection to Cassandra and Kafka. By default the Helm chart is configured to locate existing persisted services using labels: Cassandra - expects a Cassandra service in the same namespace with labels app=cassandra and release=foundation Kafka - expects a Kafka service in the same namespace with labels app=kafka and release=foundation Check your existing Cassandra and Kafka have the given labels. If you did not install foundation services from Stratoss™ Lifecycle Manager with the Helm release name of foundation, then the release label may have an alternative value. »
