# How can I try out Rundeck Enterprise?

Note: this setup is meant for evaluating Rundeck on your local workstation. For a guide to setting up Rundeck Enterprise in production see Installation.

  1. Fill out the download form to access the download page.

  2. Click on ➤ Cluster and click on the the file ending in .jar to start the download.

  3. Once the download is finished verify that the file's checksum matches the expected checksum:

    shasum -a 1 ~/Downloads/rundeckpro-launcher-cluster-3.1.0-20190731.jar
  4. Run the .jar file:

    java -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Xmx1024m -jar ~/Downloads/rundeckpro-launcher-cluster-3.1.0-20190731.jar
  5. Once you see something similar to following log output, you know the server is ready:

    2018-04-23 16:18:58.889:INFO:oejs.ServerConnector:main: Started ServerConnector@2dcf960d{HTTP/1.1}{}
  6. Navigate to http://localhost:4440/ in a browser

  7. Log in with the username admin and password admin

Rundeck Enterprise is now running on your workstation for you to evaluate!

# Encrypted key/config storage

Encrypted key/config storage enabled by default. The default encryption algorithm is stronger than the “Default JCE Policy” used in earlier versions of Java 1.8

Note: If you receive an error message about encryption policy strength with creating projects or keys you will need to upgrade your Java 1.8 version, or set the encryption algorithm in rundeck-config.properties to a lower strength algorithm such as PBEWithMD5AndDES

Further information about encrypted key/config storage on this link.
