Install YugabyteDB Anywhere
Use the following instructions to install YugabyteDB Anywhere software. For guidance on which method to choose, see YBA Prerequisites.
Note: For higher availability, one or more additional YugabyteDB Anywhere instances can be separately installed, and then configured later to serve as passive warm standby servers. See Enable High Availability for more information.
If Docker is not installed on the host computer, you need to install a recent version that matches the minimum requirements outlined in Installing Docker in Airgapped Environments.
If access to the Docker repositories for your Linux distribution is not available on the host computer, you may have to manually transfer the necessary RPM or DEB packages whose locations are specified in Installing Docker in Airgapped Environments.
Refer to Airgapped hosts for more details on preparing your host machine.
On a computer connected to the Internet, perform the following steps:
Make a directory for downloading the binaries by executing the following command:
sudo mkdir /opt/downloads
Change the owner user for the directory by executing the following command:
sudo chown -R ubuntu:ubuntu /opt/downloads
Change to the directory by executing the following command:
replicated.tar.gzfile by executing the following command:
wget --trust-server-names https://get.replicated.com/airgap
yugawarebinary and change the following number, as required:
Switch to the following directory:
replicatedbinary, as follows:
tar xzvf replicated.tar.gz
Install Replicated. If multiple options appear, select the
eth0network interface, as follows:
cat ./install.sh | sudo bash -s airgap
yugaware binary is installed using the Replicated UI after the Replicated installation completes.

sudo docker ps
You should see an output similar to the following:
The next step is to install YugabyteDB Anywhere.
Set Up HTTPS (optional)
Launch the Replicated UI via http://yugaware-host-public-ip:8800. Expect to see a warning stating that the connection to the server is not yet private. This condition is resolved once HTTPS for the Replicated Admin Console is set up in the next step. Proceed by clicking Continue to Setup > ADVANCED to bypass the warning and access the Replicated Admin Console, as shown in the following illustration:
You can provide your own custom SSL certificate and a hostname, as shown in the following illustration:

Replicated performs a set of preflight checks to ensure that the host is set up correctly for YugabyteDB Anywhere, as shown in the following illustration:
Click Continue to configure YugabyteDB Anywhere.
If the preflight check fails, review the Troubleshoot YugabyteDB Anywhere to resolve the issue.
Set the TLS Version for Yugaware Frontend
Specify TLS versions via Application config, as shown in the following illustration:
The recommended TLS version is 1.2.
