Install a New LogRhythm Deployment

This document helps you determine a platform for the LogRhythm Software and provides instructions for installing LogRhythm on your own systems.

We recommend that you perform these procedures with the assistance of LogRhythm Professional Services.

Review Assumptions

Before installing the LogRhythm Software, ensure the following:

  • Administrative permissions to complete the assigned preparation and installation.
  • Dedicated hardware and/or virtual environments are configured as outlined in this installation guide.
Configuring your dedicated hardware or virtual environment outside the parameters listed in this document may prevent the LogRhythm Software from operating and performing properly. LogRhythm does not support non-standard configurations. If your environments cannot be configured to the standard configurations, contact LogRhythm to determine whether a custom solution is possible.
The LogRhythm installer is not supported on systems that use compressed drives.

The LogRhythm Infrastructure Installer

The LogRhythm Deployment Tool, also called the Infrastructure Installer, coordinates the installation and configuration of the LogRhythm Common Components (LR Common) across a set of machines.

LRCommon currently contains:

  • LogRhythm API Gateway
  • LogRhythm Service Registry
  • LogRhythm Metrics Collection

Note the following requirements of the Infrastructure Installer:

  • User Access. The user needs to be able to log on to each host in the deployment in order to run the Host Infrastructure Installer.
  • Elevated Execution. The tool executes local commands under an elevated context. The user running the tool must have permission to elevate the execution.
  • Network Time. The times on the hosts must be synchronized. This is a requirement for SSL certificates that are shared among the hosts in the deployment. If times are not synchronized, this tool will likely report that consul is unable to elect a leader.

    If this prerequisite is not met, the deployment may not function properly after installation is complete.
