Setting up GenSynth for Multi-Machine

  1. If you want packages, copy the package repository to the location configured by GENSYNTH_PACKAGE_REPO on the API server machine.


    The default configuration extracts the file given to you by your Professional Services representative to the root of this repository.

  2. Run on the master to start the Docker containers. If successful, the start script creates worker configuration and copies it to the shared workspace.


    Optionally, run --install-templates to install the Simpnet and Resnet50 FRCNN templates. This will use the resource-install command to install the Simpnet and Resnet50 FRCNN data, models, and configuration from the GENSYNTH_PACKAGE_REPO location.

  3. On each worker, change the working directory [cd] to a local folder, preferably in the home directory. From this location, run the script. This script resides on <path-to-shared-drive>/multi-machine/ This step unpacks configuration and scripts to gensynth-deploy under the current working directory.

  4. Run within the gensynth-deploy folder to start the worker API container on each worker, utilizing the configuration that was generated by the previous steps.

  5. Log into the GenSynth UI at <GENSYNTH_API_HOSTNAME>:<GENSYNTH_WEB_PORT>. The first person to log in should use the administrator login/password to create accounts as needed as well as to change the default administrator password.


If you need to remove the containers (e.g., for an upgrade),use on each machine to terminate all of the Docker containers. Note that doing this will invalidate your license and it will need to be activated again, as this script destroys the containers. Alternatively, you can manually interact with the containers such as docker stop gensynth-db. Stopping and starting the containers will not invalidate your license.
