    Remote Root Container on Windows

    Wayne Irwin Newbie


      I have installed Fuse Management Console V0.9.10. I installed OpenSSH on a Windows workstation and then tried to create a remote root container on it. It proceeded without error (on the FMC), but did not actually provision a container.


      Reading the manual at http://fusesource.com/docs/fmc/1.0/user_guide/FMCUGContainerCreateSSH.html contains a note indicating that root containers cannot be installed on Windows by the FMC.


      My questions are:


      1) Is deploying root containers to the Windows OS a strategic direction and the beta just does not include it yet?


      2) Why can't FMC deploy root containers to Windows OS? Is there something I can install on Windows to make it acceptable to FMC to deploy to, like a fuller instance a Unix emulator?


      Missing Installation Instructions

      Also, as part of the install, I had to add my subscription licence.  Our company uses a web proxy, so the automated download failed.  I retrieved my license key manually from the FuseSource web site, but when I tried to install it, I got an error stating that JCE could not find a BC provider.  Once I installed BouncyCastle security provider, the key was accepted.  Please add these details to the install instructions.

          Hi Wayne,


          As you already found inside the documentation, creating remote root containers to a windows host is not currently supported and is not planned for the G.A. release.


          You can still install manually the FuseESB/FuseMQ etc distribution to the remote windows host and join the cluster using the fabric:join command.


          Regarding your second question, using a unix emulator could possibly get you further, but its not a recommendation.


          Thanks a lot for the feedback about the bouncycastle jce provider.

            Also just want to mention that the issue with the bouncycastle provider will be fixed for GA, so it shouldn't necessary to perform that step.
