docs/demo-images Added docs and commands to add a container provider. Sep 13, 2017

Update: June 2018 moved to Gitlab.

Red Hat CloudForms Install Demo

Install your very own local instance of the Red Hat CloudForms product, the management tool of choice for Red Hat Cloud Suite infrastructure solutions.

Install on your machine

  1. (OPTIONAL) First ensure you have an OpenShift container based installation, such as one of the following installed first:
  1. Download and unzip.

  2. Run '' or 'init.bat' file. 'init.bat' must be run with Administrative privileges:

   # The installation needs to be pointed to a running version
   # of OpenShift, so pass an IP address such as:
   $ ./  # example for OCP.
  1. Follow displayed instructions to log in to your brand new Red Hat CloudForms!


Should your local network DNS not handle the resolution of the above address, giving you page not found errors, you can apply the following to your local hosts file:

$ sudo vi /etc/hosts

# add host for OCP demo resulution 

Before the log in interface to CloudForms will be available, it takes around 5-10 minutes to populate the containers database. When it is done, log in to CloudForms web interface (where YOUR-HOST-IP is generated during the installation):

     username: admin
     password: smartvm
     username: admin
     password: smartvm

How to add a container provider to start collecting metrics:

  1. Log in to CloudForms console.

  2. Hover on menu items COMPUTE -> CONTAINERS -> PROVIDERS (click on this last one only to open).


  4. Fill in the form as follows:

   Name: OCP
   Type: OpenShift Container Platform
   Zone: default

   Default Endpoint:

     Secuirty Protocol: SSL without validation
     Hostname         : kubernetes.default
     API Port         : 443
     Token            : (see command output below)
     Confirm Token    : (see command output below)

To lookup the token us the OpenShift CLI tool 'oc' from a terminal window:

   $ oc login OCP_HOST_IP:8443 -u system:admin

   $ oc serviceaccounts get-token cfme -n cloudforms

Paste the token output into the fields mentioned above to complete the form and click on VALIDATE button. Once successful click on ADD button. An OCP container provider should appear and given time presents data as shown in image below.
