One Touch Installation

Last updated on Mar 15 2024.


OVD One Touch is an interactive shell script that provides an easy way to install different OVD roles and utilities needed for deployment of a fully functional OVD farm.

As an alternative to manual installation, OVD One Touch can install not just individual OVD roles, but also a quick "all-in-one" solution (where Session Manager, Web Access, File and Application Servers are installed within the same environment) and additional utilities that simplify additional configuration of the farm.


Please make sure that all servers meet minimal system and hardware criteria for their corresponding OVD roles as listed in requirements.

Important notes

  • Internet access is required to install with the OVD One Touch installer, and if you are using URL filtering, please allow access to and alongside the standard operating system repositories required.

  • All commands need to be run with root privileges.

  • Where multiple roles are required on the same server, the installer can be re-run multiple times.

  • If you make a mistake during installation, you can abort the script at any point by pressing CTRL + C.

  • OVD Enterprise Secure Gateway (optional) must be installed on a separate server.

  • For RHEL7 and RHEL8: OVD is compatible with SELinux. If SELinux is enabled, the installation process will configure SELinux rules accordingly. If SELinux is disabled, it will remain so, and no SELinux rules will be applied.

Installation walk-through

  1. Connect to the server you want the role/utility to install. For Windows Application Server role installation, use any other role server.

  2. Elevate your shell to the superuser if you are not already root:

    sudo -s

  3. Update your system

    • Ubuntu

      apt update && apt upgrade

    • RHEL / CentOS

      yum update

  4. Download and launch installation script, replacing the <version> with the specific version code you wish to install:

    curl -s | OVD_VERSION=<version> bash


    wget | OVD_VERSION=<version> bash


    You will find the version code on the Inuvika OVD supported versions page. You may also contact Inuvika to request the code.

  5. After a short period, you will be presented with the welcome screen. Press ENTER to proceed with a preparation of the installation environment.

  • Install Grafana Server
  • Install Speed Test on the OWA

Please choose the required option and press ENTER. Depending on the role selected, the Installer will then ask you for additional information such as IP address, passwords etc.

The installer will then beging and automatically install the requested roles and/or features you have requested

Windows OVD Application Server installation

The Installer allows you to install OVD Windows Application Server remotely from any supported Linux server.


If you plan to integrate application server with Active Directory domain, do not join the server to the domain before finishing OVD installation.

Before running the Installer, you need to configure Windows server as follows:


You must use the local administrator account.

iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString(''))

If you encounter an SSL/TLS error, please run this command first:

[Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = [Net.SecurityProtocolType]::Tls12,[Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol

Each option will ask a series of questions for information such as IP address, passwords etc. Please answer these in sequence. Remember that all inputs are case-sensitive.
