Ubuntu 18.10 – How to install AWS Cloud with LVM and SELinux
Ubuntu 18.10 is a popular Linux distribution that can be used for a wide range of tasks, including setting up an Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud environment. AWS is a cloud-based platform that provides a wide range of services, such as compute power, storage, and networking, to name a few. This article will focus on how to install AWS Cloud with Logical Volume Management (LVM) and Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux).
Step 1: Install Ubuntu 18.10
The first step is to install Ubuntu 18.10 on your system. You can download the ISO file from the Ubuntu website and create a bootable USB drive using tools such as Rufus or Etcher. Once you have created the bootable USB, insert it into your system and boot from it.
Follow the on-screen instructions to install Ubuntu 18.10. You can choose to install Ubuntu alongside another operating system or replace the existing operating system entirely. It is recommended to install the updates during the installation process to ensure that you have the latest security patches and software updates.
Step 2: Install AWS CLI
After installing Ubuntu 18.10, the next step is to install the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI). The AWS CLI is a unified tool that provides a command line interface for interacting with various AWS services, such as EC2, S3, and RDS.
To install the AWS CLI, open the terminal and type the following command:
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install awscli
Once the installation is complete, you can verify the installation by typing the following command:
$ aws --version
This command should return the version of the AWS CLI that you just installed.
Step 3: Configure AWS CLI
After installing the AWS CLI, the next step is to configure it with your AWS account credentials. To do this, type the following command in the terminal:
$ aws configure
This command will prompt you to enter your AWS access key ID, secret access key, default region name, and default output format. You can obtain your access key ID and secret access key from the AWS Management Console by navigating to IAM > Users > Security Credentials.
Once you have entered your credentials, you can verify that the configuration was successful by typing the following command:
$ aws ec2 describe-instances
This command should return a list of your EC2 instances.
Step 4: Install LVM
Logical Volume Management (LVM) is a powerful disk management tool that allows you to manage storage devices more flexibly. LVM is particularly useful in cloud environments where storage requirements can change dynamically.
To install LVM on Ubuntu 18.10, open the terminal and type the following command:
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install lvm2
Once the installation is complete, you can verify that LVM is installed by typing the following command:
$ sudo lvmdiskscan
This command should return a list of storage devices that are available for use with LVM.
Step 5: Create LVM Logical Volumes
After installing LVM, the next step is to create logical volumes. Logical volumes are virtual partitions that are created from one or more physical volumes (i.e., disks or disk partitions). You can create logical volumes to store data, such as databases, web content, or application code.
To create a logical volume, follow these steps:
Identify the physical volumes that you want to use for the logical volume.
Create a volume group that includes the physical volumes. A volume group is a collection of physical volumes that are managed together by LVM.
