RMM Server Installation

There’s pluses and minuses to each install type. Be aware that:

  • There is no migration script, once you’ve installed with one type there is no “conversion”. You’ll be installing a new server and migrating agents manually if you decide to go another way.

Debian vs Ubuntu

Base RAM UsageOS

Traditional Install

  • It’s a VM/machine. One storage device to backup if you want to do VM based backups
  • You have a backup and restore script
  • Much easier to troubleshoot when things go wrong
  • Faster performance / easier to fine tune and customize to your needs

Docker Install

  • Docker is more complicated in concept: has volumes and images
  • Backup/restore is via Docker methods only
  • Docker has container replication/mirroring options for redundancy/multiple servers

How do I do X feature in the web UI?

A lot of features in the web UI are hidden behind right-click menus; almost everything has a right click menu so if you don’t see something, try right clicking on it.

Why can’t I use a self signed certificate for web etc.

NATS over TLS needs a real certificate signed with a trusted root certificate.
