Hi y'all,

 

I just recently got my first omada AP and installed the controller on linux using the official instructions here:

How to install Omada SDN controller on Linux system (above Controller 5.0.29) | TP-Link

 

However... it was difficult on the debian 11 environment I used, which didn't seem to have the openjdk 8 package at all, and using opejdk11 required me to compile jsvc manually.

 

and while I did get it installed, the next time I ran an apt-update on the system I got an error because of the mismatched jsvc.

 

is there an easy linux distribution for the omada controller that has all the proper dependencies together at the same time?

 

i know there's a popular docker container out there, but I would prefer to stick with the official tp-link sources if possible.

Hello. I am using Ubuntu 20.04 LTS And also 22.04 (but updated from 20.04 and not clean fresh install)

 

sudo apt install curl jsvc openjdk-8-jre mongodb

 

sudo update-alternatives --config java

 

First line installs required packages and the second line let you set default Java version. After that you have to download Omada Debian package

 

wget https://static.tp-link.com/upload/software/2022/202211/20221121/Omada_SDN_Controller_v5.7.4_Linux_x64.deb


install it

sudo dpkg -i Omada_SDN_Controller_v5.7.4_Linux_x64.deb

Interesting so do you end up with jdk 8 and 10 installed at the same time?

Yes, exactly. And with the command above you select default to use and it is working with Omada without any problems.

+20y experience in Linux/UNIX, +12y VMware, +10y as network admin, +8y as AIX admin (professional) I really know what is going on at background, please don't try to cheat me TP-Link :)

I recently installed it on Kali, it wasn't perfectly straight, but it's not complicated.

 

The only additional command I ran was

 

sudo apt-get install swig openjdk-11-jdk

 

to make the "make" works

  @EasyRhino 

 

in a SOHO environment ?

the easiest one ?   Hardware controller.  Its simply true ,    

 

While my day job is IT  ( linux / k8s) .    I'm done with doing my 'day job at home' . ( 20 years of IT , wife and kids , does that to people  :-) )  

So I opted for a HC.   it just works and but yeah its a bit less flexibele on logging etc...
