ThoughtSpot deployment artifacts for RHEL and OEL
Get the two primary tarball artifacts for configuring ThoughtSpot using RHEL.
For all (online and offline) deployments of ThoughtSpot on a customer-managed OS like RHEL, OEL, or Amazon Linux 2, you will need:
The Release tarball, which contains the ThoughtSpot software binaries (
tar.gz) of the release version you are installing or upgrading; for example, ThoughtSpot Release 6.0.4.
The Ansible tarball, which contains a set of scripts for installing OS packages, dependencies, the ThoughtSpot CLI (tscli), and configuring your cluster (preparing the disks). You can obtain these files from the ThoughtSpot secure file sharing system. We sent this information to you in our Welcome email. If you experience difficulties accessing these files, contact ThoughtSpot Support.
For offline deployments, ThoughtSpot will install certain required OS packages. Refer to Packages installed with ThoughtSpot for RHEL and OEL for the RHEL and OEL packages and Packages installed with ThoughtSpot for Amazon Linux 2 for the Amazon Linux 2 packages. These will be included in the offline version of the Ansible tarball. If you need help with these dependencies, contact the ThoughtSpot Support team.
If your organization performs automation with a different configuration management tool, you can use the template ThoughtSpot developed for automation with Terraform. You can obtain this template from our Github repository. ThoughtSpot provides templates for these alternative tools only as generic guidelines. You should review the templates before using them and make sure that they are safe to use in your organization. In no way can ThoughtSpot be held responsible for any issue arising from their use.
Next, proceed to install:
install ThoughtSpot in RHEL online clusters, where the hosts can connect to the public repositories to download the required packages
install ThoughtSpot in RHEL offline clusters, where the hosts cannot connect to the public repositories to download the required packages
