Install Cloud Exchange

Only an Admin should install Cloud Exchange. The docker images are available on docker-hub. Make sure the volume can connect to docker-hub before executing the ./start command. Ensure docker authentication prior to running the docker-compose command.

For guidance on how to upgrade/migrate to the newest code, refer to one of these articles:

  1. Clone the netskopeoss/ta_cloud_exchange Github repository to a volume with with at least 20 GB of storage. Please note, clone to any folder other than /usr/local to avoid a conflict within Docker.

    mkdir netskope
    cd netskope
    git clone https://github.com/netskopeoss/ta_cloud_exchange
    cd ta_cloud_exchange
  2. Execute the setup script and follow the steps:

    sudo ./setup
  3. Launch Cloud Exchange 3:

    sudo ./start

The Cloud Exchange UI is now accessible with the system’s IP (https://<ip>).

Note for BETA users. Run the following command during step 1 to download the beta version of a release in lieu of the git clone message run above: git clone -b beta https://github.com/netskopeoss/ta_cloud_exchange. During step 2, while executing the setup script, opt IN to beta to use the beta code rather than the default action of searching for the "latest" GA version.]
