Automation Suite on EKS/AKS Installation Guide
Last updated Feb 28, 2024

Prerequisite checks

It is recommended to run prerequisite checks to ensure that you properly configured the cloud infrastructure and to validate input.json before starting the Automation Suite installation.
You can run a prerequisite check using the uipathctl prereq command. By default, this command verifies all the prerequisites. If you want to exclude components from the execution, use the --excluded flag.
The prerequisite and health checks/tests run in the uipath-check namespace. You must either allow the creation of the uipath-check namespace or create it yourself before running the checks/tests. In addition to this, some checks/tests require that you allow the communication between the uipath-check and uipath namespaces, or that you enable the use of hostNetwork.

The checks in the following table are run on each node:

Check

Description

SQL Connection

Validates that Automation Suite can successfully connect to SQL server for UiPath products and shared services (such as Identity, Portal, Org Mamagement, etc.) using the SQL connection strings provided in input.json. This is mandatory for a successful installation.

Validates the storage classes for File Storage are configured as required for Automation Suite Robots.

Optional Components

Validates that your cluster has components that you chose to exclude from the Automation Suite installation.

Ingress

Validates that the cluster ingress is configured correctly and the FQDN URL requests can reach UiPath products.

Network Policies

Checks if network policies configured in Automation Suite are compatible with the cluster.

Registry

Validates that Automation Suite can access the UiPath docker registry. This is mandatory for a successful installation.

Cluster Connectivity

Validates whether the cluster communication is configured properly:

  • Between two random pods completed

  • Between pod to a multinode ClusterIP

  • Between pod to a multinode ClusterIP without a clusterIP

  • Between pod to a multinode ClusterIP using HostNetwork

  • Between pod to a multinode ClusterIP without a clusterIP set using HostNetwork

  • Between two pods colocated on the same node via ClusterIP
