According to @Freso and @rob in https://blog.musicbrainz.org/2016/08/02/server-update-2016-08-01/ I have completed the test installation twice - both worked so far.
Steps for everyone else to test (even those running windows with a virtualization software like VMWare):
- Create a new virtual machine, use an ISO-Image “ubuntu-16.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso”
- Choose “Install OS later”, if you want to localize your virtual machine (GUI, keyboard, timezone)
- Create a single 100GB file and a VM with 8GB RAM, 4 Prozessor (or whatever you can offer)
- IMPORTANT option for Processor: ACTIVATE “Virtualize Intel VT-x/EPT or AMD-V/RVI”
- Install and update Ubuntu (“Software Updater”) with your language, keyboard and Timezone
- Username: vm, Passwort: musicbrainz (or whatever you like)
- In Ubuntu open a new Terminal window and execute the following commands:
sudo apt install git
git clone https://github.com/metabrainz/musicbrainz-vm
sudo apt install virtualbox
to check the available Vagrant version (should be > v1.8)
apt-cache policy vagrant
sudo apt install vagrant
- Change to musicbrainz-vm directory with
- Start installing musicbrainz
Sit back and watch and wait and wait and wait and wait for about 2 hours (on a fast PC, running this VM on a SSD)
You will see many thousand lines of console output in green, red and other colors…
Everything works fully automated, even the download of the Datadumps and the import into the database
Two hours later you will see a final "InitDb.pl succeeded”.
The questions are now:
a) How do we start the usual Musicbrainz-Server-GUI (IP? Port?) to search for artists, releases and all other informations?
b) How do we start the replication?
c) What about the search server?
