Creating a Roving Edge Infrastructure Device Node

Describes how to create a Roving Edge Infrastructure device node in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Note

Attach at least one image workload and at least one object storage bucket workload when creating a Roving Edge Infrastructure device node.

    1. Open the navigation menu. Under Hybrid Cloud, go to Roving Edge Infrastructure > Nodes.

      The Nodes page appears.

    2. Click Create Node.

      The Create Node dialog box appears.

    3. Complete the following:

      • Node Name: Enter the name of the node.

      • Create in Compartment: Select the compartment in which the node you create resides from the list.
      • Shape: Select RED_GPU_1_RX1_40 from the list. Select this shape option if you are configuring and requesting a RED.
      • Show Password Options: Click to display the Super User Password fields. Enter and confirm the super user password. Follow the password guidelines in the user interface.

        Enter and confirm the password.

      • Show Passcode Options: Click to display the Unlock Passphrase fields. Enter and confirm the passphrase used to unlock the RED associated with this node.

      • Shipping Method: Choose one of the options:

        • Let Oracle ship it to you

    4. Click Create Node.

      The node you created is added to the list of nodes.

  • Use the oci rover node create command and required parameters to create a Roving Edge Infrastructure device node in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure:

    oci rover node create --compartment-id compartment-id --display-name display-name --shape RED_GPU_1_RX1_40 [OPTIONS]

    The shape value RED_GPU_1_RX1_40 indicates you are creating a Roving Edge Infrastructure device node.

    For a complete list of flags and variable options for CLI commands, see the Command Line Reference.

  • Run the CreateRoverNode operation to create aRoving Edge Infrastructure device node in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
