1. Access the Service Console
You use the Service Console for Oracle Container Cloud Service to create new service instances, as well as to administer and monitor service instances.
- Sign in to the My Services application at the URL and using the credentials you’ve received, either from your administrator or in an email from Oracle Cloud.
In the My Services dashboard, navigate to the Oracle Container Cloud Service entry and select Open Service Console from the menu.
- On the Service Details page, click Open Service Console to display the Services tab of the Oracle Container Cloud Service Console.
2. Create a New Service Instance
- On the Services tab of the Oracle Container Cloud Service Console, click Create Service to display the Oracle Container Cloud Service Instance Creation Wizard.
- Specify a name and description for the new service instance as follows:
- Service Name: tutorial-instance
- Service Description: Tutorial instance
Tip: You won't be using the sshkeybundle.zip file during this tutorial but you'll be deleting it later for the sake of good housekeeping, so make a note of the temporary location you specify.
- Admin Username: admin (the default)
- Admin Password: specify a password of your choosing
Tip: Make a note of the password as you'll need it in a moment.
Tip: Click Creating service ... to see the progress and the messages output during the instance creation process. From time-to-time, click the refresh icon beside the Create Service button to check whether the instance has been created.
You can see that two Virtual Machines (VMs) have been created:
- one VM is the manager node, running Oracle Container Cloud Service
- one VM is a worker node on which Docker containers will be deployed
3. Display the Container Console to Verify the Service Instance is Running
- Click the menu icon beside the tutorial-instance name at the top of the screen and choose Container Console.
- Choose Container Console to display the Container Console login window.
- Enter the following credentials and click Login:
- Username: admin
- Password: [the password you specified earlier]
The Container Console's Dashboard page is displayed.
You can see the hosts (the worker nodes) that are
available and the standard resource pools that
have been created (default, Development,and
Production). This is where you'll manage and
monitor your Docker environment.
Congratulations! You've successfully created a new Oracle Container Cloud Service instance and verified that it's up and running.
4. Tidying up
As good practice, let's delete the tutorial-instance you've created and the sshkeybundle.zip file you downloaded earlier.
- In the Container Console, click Logout.
- Go back to the Service Console and on the Service Details page, click Oracle Container Cloud Service to return to the Services Summary page
- On the Services Summary page, click the menu icon beside the tutorial-instance.
- Choose Delete and confirm that you want to delete the tutorial instance.
- For the sake of good housekeeping, delete the sshkeybundle.zip file from the temporary location in which you saved it earlier.
The message Terminating service ... appears in the Status field.
Tip: From time-to-time, click the refresh icon beside the Create Service button to check whether the instance has been deleted.
