Oracle Cloud Marketplace Installation

Zmanda + The next-generation cloud. Protect your data for less.
Building Zmanda on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) enables you to deploy a backup server in any geography in minutes. It is also ideal if your workloads are hosted on OCI, or if you are using OCI Object Storage as a target. Let's get started:


  1. 1.
    Login to your OCI account, select the region you would like to deploy your Zmanda Server in, and navigate to Instances. Click Create instance
  2. 2.
    Give the instance a name and complete the Compartment, Placement, and Security fields as desired
  3. 3.
    In the Image and shape box, click Change image
  4. 4.
    Click Marketplace, type "Zmanda" in the search bar, check the appropriate boxes, and click Select Image
  1. 5.
    Change the shape as desired. For minimum system requirements, see here.
  2. 6.
    In the Primary VNIC information section, select the appropriate virtual cloud network (VCN) and subnet.
You must configure ingress rules that allow TCP traffic on ports 8008, 8002, 10080, 10081, and 22 (if using ssh to connect).
To do this, you can go to Networking>Virtual Cloud Networks>Click on your VCN>Click on the default subnet or create a new subnet>Click on the default security list or create a new security list>Add the appropriate Ingress rules.
  1. 7.
    Configure the rest of the settings as desired including SSH. If you do not enable SSH, you will only be able to connect through a Cloud Shell Connection. When finished, click Create
  2. 8.
    You will be taken to the Instance page where you can see info about the instance. You can connect to the instance using the SSH keys or through a Cloud Shell Connection

    Once connected, reset the admin password for Zmanda using the following command:
sudo /opt/zmanda/amanda/bin/reset-admin-password
length should be at least 8
Password should have at least one numeral
Password should have at least one uppercase letter
Password should have at least one of the symbols $,@,#,%,^,&,*,~

https://<VM’s Public IP>:8008
The credentials will be the username (admin) and the password you set in step 10
