This is a follow up from the previous OCI Streaming post - the OCI Streaming connection requires a connectivity agent to be specified, when one uses the connection as a trigger. I tried this out with the connectivity agent installed on my laptop. Naturally, this is not feasible for any organization, so installation of the agent on an OCI Compute is a compelling alternative.
Step 1 - Spin up an OCI Compute Instance -
Regarding keys - simplest way to go is Generate a key pair for me. Save the public / private key locally.
then Paste the public key and click Create.
Step 2 - Login to the Compute Instance -
I am using Putty to login to the compute instance; pre-requisite is the private key .ppk format. So I use PuttyGen to load the key generated by OCI and then save it in the Putty format.
Now I leverage this in the Putty connection -
Step 3 - Install JDK on the Compute Instance -
sudo yum install java
As you can see, I have copied the agent installer zip to this directory, using WinSCP.
Step 5 - Create a new Agent Group in OIC -
then configure the InstallerProfile.cfg file to point to this Agent Group.
