Quickstart for Landing Zones


If you are using a Windows machine, you can download the executable.

However if you are running Linux or MacOS, you must run the Landing Zone in a Docker container.

First install Docker Compose via pip:

$ pip install docker-compose

To map a local Unix socket to the Docker container’s socket, write the following in a .yml file (download, right-click and save):

version: "3.3"
    image: hypernetlabs/landing-zone-daemon
      - /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock
      - /home/{YOUR-USERNAME}/.docker/config.json:/root/.docker/config.json # Put your home directory here
    container_name: landing-zone-daemon
    # Your machine id and machine name are arbitrary, you can id/name your machine anything
    command: --username 'youremail@email.com' --password 'yourpassword' --backend 'https://api.galileoapp.io' --machine-id 'yourmachineid' --machine-name 'yourmachinename'
      DOCKER_HOST: unix:///var/run/docker.sock

Change the variables in the .yml file before usage. In addition, you can mount a TCP socket instead of a Unix socket if you wish to do so.

Warning: If you are using MacOS and you are having trouble, check your ~/.docker/config.json and delete "credsStore" : "osxkeychain".

Running the Landing Zone

In the same folder as the .yml file, pull the Landing Zone image and run it using the commands:

$ docker-compose pull
$ docker-compose up -d

Once you get a successful connection to the server, you can confirm if you have a machine by checking under Machines in the Galileo Web App or in the Galileo command line interface.

Alternative to Docker Compose

If you do not want to use Docker Compose, you can do the following:

Make sure you have installed Docker. To pull and run the Landing Zone Daemon Docker image, run the command:

$  docker run -d -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v ~/.docker/config.json:/root/.docker/config.json hypernetlabs/landing-zone-daemon --machine-name 'yourmachinename' --machine-id 'yourmachineid'

Take a look at the docker logs by:

$ docker container logs <container-id>

The landing zone daemon will give you instructions for registering your machine as a landing zone on Galileo.
