Video Server#

Before installing this Role on the Carbonio CE infrastructure, make sure that you installed the Mailstore & Provisioning, because this role is required by the Carbonio VideoServer.

Install Packages#


In case you install this Role on a Node which already features the Mesh and Directory Role, make sure you do not install the service-discover-agent package.

# apt install carbonio-videoserver-ce service-discover-agent

Then, install the packages.

# dnf install carbonio-videoserver-ce service-discover-agent

After the installation, make sure that the Carbonio VideoServer public IP address (i.e., the one that will accept incoming connections to the Carbonio VideoServer) is present in the configuration file /etc/janus/janus.jcfg and add it if missing: find the variable nat_1_1_mapping and add it, for example:

``nat_1_1_mapping = ""``

Finally, enable and start the service with the commands

# systemctl enable carbonio-videoserver.service
# systemctl start  carbonio-videoserver.service

Bootstrap Carbonio CE#


# carbonio-bootstrap

The bootstrap command will execute a number of tasks and will set up the node. At the end, you will be prompted with a menu and, if you already configured all, you only need to click y for confirmation.

On RHEL 9 only, restart the node to ensure that Carbonio CE service management come under the control of systemd:

# reboot

Join Carbonio Mesh#

Carbonio Mesh is required to allow communication between Carbonio CE and its components. The configuration is interactively generated by command

# service-discover setup-wizard

This command will:

  • ask for the IP address and netmask

  • ask for the Carbonio Mesh secret, which is used for setups, management, and to access the administration GUI. See section Carbonio Mesh Administration Interface for more information.

    This password will be denoted as MESH_SECRET throughout the documentation.


    We suggest to use a robust password which is at least 16 characters long, including at least one of lowercase and uppercase letters, numbers, special characters and store it in a password manager.

    In case the password is lost or the credential file becomes corrupted and unusable, you can reset them using the procedure detailed in section Carbonio Mesh Credentials.

  • store the setup in file /etc/zextras/service-discover/cluster-credentials.tar.gpg

To complete Carbonio Mesh installation, run

# pending-setups -a


The secret is stored in file /var/lib/service-discover/password, which is accessible only by the root user.
