ShapeBlue Packages

ShapeBlue builds and hosts Apache CloudStack noredist and customer support-patch repositories for APT (Ubuntu/Debian) and YUM (RHEL/CentOS) based distributions, and Apache CloudStack SystemVM templates

cloudstack packages

Start by selecting the major CloudStack version. Without pinning on a minor version, you’ll install the latest minor release using the repository.

NOTE: Our current production supported major versions of Cloudstack are 4.17, 4.18 and 4.19.

Configuring Repository for Debian-based platforms

Import our gpg release key: (Key ID 584DF93F, Key fingerprint = 7203 0CA1 18C1 A275 68B1 37C4 BDF0 E176 584D F93F)

mkdir -p /etc/apt/keyrings
wget -O- http://packages.shapeblue.com/release.asc | gpg --dearmor | sudo tee /etc/apt/keyrings/cloudstack.gpg > /dev/null

Add the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cloudstack.list to enable the repository (replace 4.19 with the preferred version):

deb [signed-by=/etc/apt/keyrings/cloudstack.gpg] http://packages.shapeblue.com/cloudstack/upstream/debian/4.19 /

 

You may now install any of the available CloudStack packages, for example:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install cloudstack-management cloudstack-usage cloudstack-agent

Configuring Repository for RPM-based platforms

Import our gpg release key: (Key ID 584DF93F, Key fingerprint = 7203 0CA1 18C1 A275 68B1 37C4 BDF0 E176 584D F93F)
rpm --import http://packages.shapeblue.com/release.asc
