I've been trying to get the Omada controller working on my Manjaro Linux install, I downloaded 5.3 from AUR and it is failing when creating the keystore. Any ideas of how I can get this running?

 

Thanks, Derek

 

Hopefully I'm asking this question in the right place, apologies if I'm not.

I finally got it working. Thanks for your help Alex. It turns out that the problem was when I uninstalled 5.3, I deleted /opt/omada-controller, however I wasn't looking close enough to notice the symlinks to /var/lib/omada-controller. So those files weren't being cleaned up and contained some leftovers from the 5.3 install (probably bad perms or reference to mongo).

 

Thanks for all the help and suggestions guys.

It looks like your PC is not giving the controller enough permissions, you could try running it as Administrator or as Root.

I have been trying launching this as $> sudo /opt/omada-controller/bin/control.sh start

 

Is there some other way I should be trying to launch the software?

 

Thanks, Derek

I'm afraid that Manjaro Linux is not officially supported on Omada Controller.

It's recommended to install the Omada controller on the following officially supported Linux operating system.

Ubuntu 16.04/18.04/20.04, Debian 8/9/10, CentOS 6/7

 

Alternatively, you may try the mbentley/docker-omada-controller maintained by @mbentley.

 

For more controller installation guides, you may check the related posts from Here.

I use mbentley's (most excellent) docker image for one of my site controllers.  Here's the startup logs from 5.4.6 on my Synology NAS which may give you some clues as to what you're missing (assuming you haven't just installed Docker under Manjaro and got on with your life)

Yes, the AUR package works well and should be started with `sudo systemctl start omada-controller.service`

 

However, if you have been running it as root, you have probably broken the permissions.  You shouldn't be running it as root.

 

I would remove the package, clean up all it's data and then re-install it.  Start it with systemd which will run it with the proper permissions.

I still can't get it to work even afer uninstalling omada-controller and starting over. It does get further along, but always fails when trying to start mongodb:

I can't seem to upload the stack trace here, or the whole log file as an attachment

  @dealy663 Which version of mongodb do you have installed?

 

`pacman -Q | grep -i mongo`

I installed the mongodb44-bin from AUR, 4.4.14-1.

  @dealy663 do not use some aur package, use instead source (tar.gz, https://static.tp-link.com/upload/software/2022/202207/20220729/Omada_SDN_Controller_v5.4.6_Linux_x64.tar.gz) and install manually.

 

 

At least as it relates to Arch Linux derivatives, I think this is not good advice.  The AUR package is quite good and integrates everything in a sane way on an Arch-based distro.

 

It also runs everything as a non-privileged user for you by default.  I suspect the issue is tied to running it manually as root causing some permissions somewhere.

 

The AUR maintainer also deals with the fact that Arch is fairly bleeding edge and has constantly shifting software versions.

 

@dealy663 The AUR package is at 5.4.6 now, can you try updating?
