2.7. Install the Inventory Analyzer Service

Use SSH to connect to the appliance using the user nextron and the password you specified during the installation. Now you can run the following command:

nextron@inventory:~$ sudo nextronInstaller -inventory

This will install the Inventory Analyzer


running the nextronInstaller

After installation is complete type sudo systemctl status asgard2.

The output should look something like this (note the status Active: active (running):

nextron@inventory:~$ sudo systemctl status asgard-inventory.service
[sudo] password for nextron:

2.8. Changing the IP-Address

Your servers IP-Address can be changed in /etc/network/interfaces. The IP is configured with the address variable.

nextron@inventory:~$ sudoedit /etc/network/interfaces
allow-hotplug ens32
iface ens32 inet static

The new IP can be applied with the command sudo systemctl restart networking.


It might be the case where the name of the network adaptor (in this example: ens32) is different. Please consider this when changing the values and leave the interface name how it is currently set in the configuration.

2.8.1. Verifying DNS Settings

To verify if your Inventory Analyzer is using the correct DNS Server, you can inspect the file /etc/resolv.conf and look for the nameserver parameter. Multiple parameters could be set here.

nextron@inventory:~$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
search example.org

If you see errors in this configuration, you can change it with the following command:

nextron@inventory:~$ sudoedit /etc/resolv.conf
