Before you begin

If Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is activated before you run the installer, it might prevent the installation of some applications. You should temporarily deactivate SELinux by running the following command: setenforce Permissive. SELinux will reactivate automatically after the next reboot.

About this task

The installer provides a default wizard to guide you through the installation process. However, in some scenarios, such as running the installer with SSH, the wizard is not available, and the console is used instead. Regardless of the method used, the same configuration setup is prompted.


  1. Run the installer file as root user.
    Note: If you do not run the Remote Engine installer as a root user on Ubuntu 14.04, you may get the following error:
    Unable to start JVM: No such file or directory 
  2. Select the region of your Talend Cloud account.
    The region is reflected in your Talend Cloud URL following this pattern: <region> For example, if your URL is, you must select AWS - USA East as your region.
    More information in Talend Cloud regions and URLs with a list of the URLs to use for each data center.
  3. Paste the Remote Engine Key generated in Talend Cloud Management Console when you create the Remote Engine into the Preauthorized key box.
  4. Optional: Select the Use HTTP proxy checkbox and enter the server and port details.
  5. Optional: Select the Use Proxy Authentication checkbox and enter the user credentials.
  6. Optional: Select the Install as a system service check box to make Remote Engine a service of your system.

    If you skip this option, you can still install your engine as a system service later by following Setting up Remote Engine service manually.

  7. Optional: When installing the engine as a system service, define a username and a group name for it, or skip this step to use the default ones: talenduser and talendgroup.
    This talenduser is the default username to use Remote Engine, whether or not you install it as a system service.
  8. Finish the installation by following the steps in the wizard.


As mentioned above, during the installation of the Remote Engine, the talenduser username is created. You must start and stop the engine with that user.

Note that in the end of the installation, your engine is automatically paired with Talend Cloud Management Console.
