To install only the
findface-video-worker service, do the following:
Before deployment, be sure to consult the system requirements.
If you have several video cards on your server, see Multiple Video Cards Usage before deploying

.runfile into some directory on the designated host (for example,
From this directory, make the

The installer will ask you a few questions and perform several automated checks to ensure that the host meets the system requirements. Fill out the prompts appropriately once requested. The questions are the following:
- Product to install: FindFace Video Worker.
- Type of
findface-video-workerpackage: CPU or GPU.
- IP address of the
After that, the installation process will automatically begin.
The answers will be saved to a file
/tmp/<findface-installer-*>.json. You can edit this file and use it to install FindFace Security on other hosts without having to answer the questions again.
If you chose to install
findface-video-manager on different hosts than that with
findface-security, specify their IP addresses in the
findface-video-worker configuration file after the installation.
sudo vi /etc/findface-video-worker-cpu.ini sudo vi /etc/findface-video-worker-gpu.ini
ntls-addr parameter, specify the
findface-ntls host IP address.
mgr-static parameter, specify the
findface-video-manager host IP address, which provides
findface-video-worker with settings and the video stream list.
To automatically install
findface-video-worker on another host without answering the installation questions, use the
/tmp/<findface-installer-*>.json file. Execute:
sudo ./findface-security-and-server-4.4.run -f /tmp/<findface-installer-*>.json
You can find an example of the installation file in Installation File.
To preserve the FindFace Security compatibility with the installation environment, we highly recommend you to disable the Ubuntu automatic update. In this case, you will be able to update your OS manually, fully controlling which packages to update.
To disable the Ubuntu automatic update, execute the following commands:
sudo apt-get remove unattended-upgrades sudo systemctl stop apt-daily.timer sudo systemctl disable apt-daily.timer sudo systemctl disable apt-daily.service sudo systemctl daemon-reload
