Copy and Extract the Greengrass Software Package onto Your Core Device

  1. Determine the IP address of the device where you will install the AWS Greengrass core software.

  2. The Greengrass software package will be named as follows:

    Copy
    greengrass-platform-version.tar.gz

    Use the scp command to copy the Greengrass software package into the home directory of your AWS Greengrass core device:

    Copy
    scp greengrass-linux-armv7l-1.0.0-release.tar.gz USER_NAME@IP_ADDRESS:~

    Note

    Replace the IP_ADDRESS used in this command with the IP address of your AWS Greengrass core device. In this example, we are using the Greengrass software package for Raspberry Pi 3.

  3. On your AWS Greengrass core device, use the following command to expand the package:

    Copy
    sudo tar -zxf greengrass-<os-name>-<platform-type>-<version>.tar.gz -C /
