Ubiquiti, the manufacturer of network equipment, offers several remote monitoring and management systems for their products. The UISP formerly known as Ubiquiti Network Management System (UNMS) is prepared for airMAX, EdgeMAX, airFiber (and others).
The software prepared by the company is officially designed only for Linux versions: Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus) 64-bit, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) 64-bit, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa) 64-bit and Debian 9 64-bit. As I used to use a fully professional CentOS Linux distribution (version 8) I tried to install UISP, but it turned out that it is not that simple.
Therefore, to make the task easier for others, I prepared a script that takes the appropriate steps to install and run UISP in CentOS 8 Linux or RHEL 8.
Link to the script: uisp-el.sh
Installation of the script requires downloading a file, granting startup privileges and run. You need root permissions, or a user belonging to a superuser group.
