Landscape On-Premises, is the standalone version of Landscape that you can install on your own network.
Each major Landscape version is supported for a period of one year after release. Here are the currently supported releases:
|MAJOR VERSION||RELEASE DATE||SUPPORTED UNTIL||VERSION OF UBUNTU|
ⓘ Note: Work is being done to allow Landscape On-Premises to run on Ubuntu 20.04. However, there is currently no ETA for that support. Once Ubuntu 20.04 is supported, Landscape On-Premises will still continue to be supported on Ubuntu 18.04 until there has been sufficient time for customers to migrate their environment.
ⓘ Note: The Landscape client is available for all supported Ubuntu releases, independently of the Landscape On-Premises releases.
Landscape On-Premises consists of two parts:
- database server
- application server
Depending on your deployment method, these may live on the same machine or different machines. Here is how you can get started:
- Quickstart, for when you don’t have Juju but quickly want to check out On-Prem. Not recommended for production environments when having more than 500 clients.
- Juju deployed for a truly scalable deployment.
- Manual installation: for when you don’t have a suitable Juju environment but need a scalable deployment.
The machine(s) running as the application server will need the following network access:
- https access to
usn.ubuntu.comin order to download the USN database and detect security updates. Without this, the available updates won’t be distinguished between security related and regular updates
- http access to the public Ubuntu archives and
changelogs.ubuntu.com, in order to update the hash-id-database files and detect new distribution releases. Without this, the release upgrade feature won’t work
- https access to
landscape.canonical.comin order to query for available OPL releases. If this access is not given, the only drawback is that OPL won’t display a note about the available releases in the account page.
