Ubuntu Server Installation

On this page, you will find details on how to install RTLS Studio 2.0.0 or higher on Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS (64-bit). 

Ubuntu 18.04 OS server edition in only supported OS for RTLS Studio 2.0 or newer. If you deploy RTLS Studio on Ubuntu 20.04 OS Server edition, the RTLS Studio could not work correctly. Alternatively, RTLS Studio 2.0.0 can be also deployed on Ubuntu 14.04 server edition, not recommended for new deployments.

Follow the installation steps based on your RTLS Studio version:




Ubuntu Server Installation Requirements

  • RTLS Studio install bundle .zip package (downloadable from partner portal)
  • x64 computer with Ubuntu 18.04.6 OS server edition pre-installed
  • WinSCP file transfer manager utility

RTLS Studio 2.6 can be used for both online and offline deployments. 

The RTLS Studio software is tested and prepared for Ubuntu 18.04LTS.

For offline deployment, do not perform apt update on Ubuntu due to offline RTLS Studio installation does not accept some packages what are in RTLS Studio install bundle. 

Installation

  1. Login to Ubuntu
    You finished Ubuntu installation on the server. You log in via the command line.

  2. Set the static IP address to the server
    First, you will need to set the server to a static IP address. The default IP address for RTLS Studio is 192.168.225.2.

    Detect your Ethernet interface by typing the following command:

    ifconfig


    The output should look as follows:

    The main Ethernet interface here is eno2 (but it can be different in your case). Its address should be 192.168.225.2. 

    If this is not the case use netplan to configure the network interface. 
    The configuration file of netplan, is under /etc/netplan/ with a .yaml extension (e.g. /etc/netplan/config.yaml). In our case:

    sudo nano /etc/netplan/50-cloud-init.yaml

    If you need more details about how to change Netplan configuration see Netplan configuration examples.

    Save and close the file and apply config:

    sudo netplan apply
  3. Download Install bundle of the latest RTLS Studio version
    You can download the install bundle of the RTLS Studio from Sewio Partner Portal section Download.

  4. Connect to the server with WinSCP.
    Use the static IP address you set in the previous step. 

  5. Copy the install bundle to the directory on the server:

    /home/sewiortls
  6. Unzip the Install bundle via command line: 
    Below you can find an example for Studio 2.4.4. If you have a different version be sure you select the correct file. 

    unzip /home/sewiortls/RTLS_Studio_2.4.4_install_bundle.zip
  7. Navigate to the install folder:

    cd /home/sewiortls/install
  8. Run the install script

    sudo sh install.sh

    The installation should take 10-20 minutes to finish (depending on the server and internet connection).  You will be also asked for the hostname. This hostname is being used by our web services (RTLS Studio, RTLS Manager, Sensmap, Sensmap3D, etc.).

  9. Reboot the Ubuntu. After that, the installation is finished.

    sudo reboot
  10. Now the installation is complete. You can reach RTLS Studio at the IP address you set in step 2).
