Hub Installation

Before you begin, you need to install the XMLRPC API package, and configure the Hub Server to use the API.

Procedure: Installing and Configuring the XMLRPC API
  1. On the Hub Server, or on a host that has access to all peripheral servers' XMLRPC APIs, install the hub-xmlrpc-api package. The package is available in the Uyuni 2020.05 repositories.

  2. Verify if the configuration file available at /etc/hub/hub-xmlrpc-api-config.json is pointing to the correct Hub instance and modify it as required.

  3. OPTIONAL: In the configuration file, check the settings for the timeout parameters connect_timeout and read_write_timeout. The values for these parameters are defined in seconds.

  4. Restart services to pick up the configuration changes.
