[DOCS] document cockpit installation
Last modified: 2018-07-19 03:04:00 EDT
Possibly new document
Describe the issue:
According to  we have the option to install cockpit, although this is not documented in the Advanced Installation guide. Separately, according to , you cannot have cockpit running if you want to have the registry-console enabled. It tells you to shut down cockpit but doesnt say how.
Suggestions for improvement:
We need to provide information on A) what cockpit is/does, and B) installing and removing cockpit; we also need to document how to install cockpit post-install. This is necessary to help customers make decisions on which they want to use and how to use it. Our consulting teams currently show cockpit as a feature, but we do not document it making it difficult for us to support.
The Atomic Host docs document this currently:
(although that guide is now moving to RHEL).
Do we still want to document it in OpenShift docs?
I think we need to provide a little guidance; maybe not a full installation instructions, but directions as to where and why to install. Currently we imply "it's not possible to install both", but in reality it just requires a bit of planning (dont put them on the same nodes).
@Max - do you think you would be able to provide this for the OpenShift docs?
