Before You Begin

Before you install Moogsoft AIOps, ensure you have met the following requirements:

Install Moogsoft AIOps

To install Moogsoft AIOps on a single host machine:

  1. Download the RPMs and install them into $MOOGSOFT_HOME :


    yum -y install moogsoft-db-6.5.0 \ 
                moogsoft-common-6.5.0 \
                moogsoft-integrations-6.5.0 \
                moogsoft-integrations-ui-6.5.0 \
                moogsoft-mooms-6.5.0 \
                moogsoft-search-6.5.0 \
                moogsoft-server-6.5.0 \
                moogsoft-ui-6.5.0 \
                moogsoft-utils-6.5.0
  2. Set the environment variables required for AIOps.

    Before you can create the APPSERVER_HOME variable, you must create the target apache-tomcat directory:

    mkdir /usr/share/apache-tomcat

    Then, if you are using the default Bash shell, you can set the varibles in ~/.bashrc :


    vi ~/.bashrc 

    Add the following by copy/paste line by line:

    export MOOGSOFT_HOME=/usr/share/moogsoft
    export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/latest
    export APPSERVER_HOME=/usr/share/apache-tomcat
    export PATH=$PATH:$MOOGSOFT_HOME/bin:$MOOGSOFT_HOME/bin/utils

    When entering the environment variable in the bashrc file, ensure each export command is on separate single line and that it does not wrap.

  3. Start a new Bash shell, or source the .bashrc file as follows:


    source ~/.bashrc
  4. If you have not already downloaded the MySQL connector as part of Pre-Install Offline RPMs , download the mysql-connector-5.1.45 jar file :


    wget https://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/Connector-J/mysql-connector-java-5.1.45.tar.gz
  5. Extract, rename and move the file to $MOOGSOFT_HOME/lib/cots/nonDist/ as follows:


    tar --strip-components 1 -xvf mysql-connector-java-5.1.45.tar.gz -C $MOOGSOFT_HOME/lib/cots/nonDist/ mysql-connector-java-5.1.45/mysql-connector-java-5.1.45-bin.jar --transform 's/-bin//'
  6. Initialize the installation:

    $MOOGSOFT_HOME/bin/utils/moog_init.sh -I MY_ZONE -u root
    • The default password for MySQL is empty, so press Enter when prompted for the MySQL 'root' password. If you created a separate user in the database for Moogsoft AIOps, use the credentals for the user you created.

    • Follow the instructions and confirm prompts about the hostname.

  7. Start moogfarmd:

    service moogfarmd start
