Anka Build Cloud setup instructions.


Anka Build requires setup of Registry, Controller and Anka Nodes.

Anka Nodes are mac machines(host machines) on which Anka Agent runs. This requires installation of anka.pkg on the host machine. The VMs are provisioned on the Anka Nodes.

Registry and Controller services are required to configure an Anka Build private macOS cloud. Registry and controller are packaged in two flavors.

  1. Linux (CentOS 7) Docker container package - anka-controller-registry-XXX.tar.gz
  2. Mac Application package - AnkaControllerRegistry-XXX.pkg

Default setup installs controller and registry together. You can configure them to run on two separate Linux instances and/or mac.

Ports Information

Anka Controller does not communicate with Anka Build nodes. Nodes communicate with controller through a Queue service(installed as part of controller).

The default port for Anka registry is 8089. All the default port and other configuration settings can be modified.
