How to configure multiple locations on minio in CentOS

To Configure Multiple Locations on Minio in CentOS

Minio is an open-source object storage server that stores unstructured data like photos, videos, virtual machine images, containers, and log files as objects. In one of our previous articles, we covered the method to install and configure system services for Minio, now in this tutorial; you will learn how to configure multiple locations on Minio in CentOS 7.

 

If you have missed our previous tutorials on Minio, you can check them out from the following links:

Installing Minio

First, create a minio file in default location by making use of the following command. 

[root@linuxhelp ~]# vim /etc/default/minio
And in that file, you need to add the following lines. 
MINIO_VOLUMES=tmpdata
MINIO_OPTS=--address 9000
MINIO_VOLUMES1=opt
MINIO_OPTS1=--address 9001

 

And then, create a new file called (minio.service) in systemd location for configuring the daemon. Here the following command is used for this purpose. 

[root@linuxhelp ~]# vim etc/systemd/system/minio.service 
And in that file , add the following lines
[Unit]
 Description=Minio
 Documentation=httpsdocs.minio.io
 Wants=network-online.target
 After=network-online.target
 AssertFileIsExecutable=usrlocalbinminio
[Service]
 WorkingDirectory=usrlocal
User=root
 Group=root
PermissionsStartOnly=true
EnvironmentFile=-etcdefaultminio
 ExecStartPre=binbash -c [ -n ${MINIO_VOLUMES} ]  echo Variable MINIO_VOLUMES not set in etcdefaultminio
ExecStart=usrlocalbinminio server $MINIO_OPTS $MINIO_VOLUMES
StandardOutput=journal
 StandardError=inherit
LimitNOFILE=65536
TimeoutStopSec=0
KillSignal=SIGTERM
SendSIGKILL=no
SuccessExitStatus=0
[Install]
 WantedBy=multi-user.target

 

Once it is done, you need to create another file(minio1.service) in systemd location for configuring daemon. So make use if the following command. 

[root@linuxhelp ~]# vim etc/systemd/system/minio1.service 
And in file, you need to add the following
[Unit]
 Description=Minio
 Documentation=httpsdocs.minio.io
 Wants=network-online.target
 After=network-online.target
 AssertFileIsExecutable=usrlocalbinminio
[Service]
 WorkingDirectory=usrlocal
User=root
 Group=root
PermissionsStartOnly=true
EnvironmentFile=-etcdefaultminio
 ExecStartPre=binbash -c [ -n ${MINIO_VOLUMES1} ]  echo Variable MINIO_VOLUMES1 not set in etcdefaultminio
ExecStart=usrlocalbinminio server $MINIO_OPTS1 $MINIO_VOLUMES1
StandardOutput=journal
 StandardError=inherit
LimitNOFILE=65536
TimeoutStopSec=0
KillSignal=SIGTERM
SendSIGKILL=no
SuccessExitStatus=0
[Install]
 WantedBy=multi-user.target


Once it is done, you need to reload the daemon by making use of the following command. 

[root@linuxhelp ~]# systemctl daemon-reload

 

And then, enable minio, minio1 service which we have configured earlier. Run the following commands for the same purpose. 

[root@linuxhelp ~]# systemctl enable minio


Created symlink from etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target wants minio.service to etc/systemd/system/minio.service.

[root@linuxhelp ~]# systemctl enable minio1


Created symlink from etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target. wants minio1.service to etc/systemd/system/minio1.service.

And then, start the minio and minio1 services by triggering the following commands. 

[root@linuxhelp ~]# systemctl start minio minio1

 

Afterwards, check the status for minio and minio1 service by making use of the following commands. 

[root@linuxhelp ~]# systemctl status minio minio1

After that, you need to start the service to check, open the browser and give URL as http://localhost:9000, login page, give access and secret key and click login. 

URL


The Minio browser opens with the first location configured in minio

Minio


open a new tab and give URL as http://localhost:9001, login page, give access and secret key and click login.

Login

 

Minio browser opens with the second location configured in minio

Browser

With this, the method to configure multiple locations in Minio comes to an end.
