For installation or upgrades, you may use an internet-connected system
to manually pull all LogZilla containers and package them up for use in
an offline system using the
logzilla download command, then copy the
files to the offline system.
A source server with internet access must be used to obtain the images which may then be manually copied to the secure destination server. To install LogZilla on an internet-connected host, follow the instructions on our website. If you are unable to bring up a LogZilla server with internet access, please let us know and we will provide the images for you to download.
For this walk-through, we are using two servers named:
- logzilla-online-source [
- logzilla-offline-dest [
logzilla-online-source should already have the latest version of
LogZilla installed by using the instructions on our
logzilla-offline-dest is the server where LogZilla will be
installed or upgraded without direct internet access.
