So I tried installing using the click-n-go method,  OS Requirements say Ubuntu >= 16,  however using Ubuntu 17.04 appears to fail.   Trying using installation instructions now. just thought i'd shoot you a heads up.

Thanks for the heads up. I will have a look at 17.04. tbh I fully tested on 16.04.

Hello, I've tested version 17.04 and removed the limitation that was on the script. It now accepts both 16 and 17.

In addition I've updated the docs to specifically note the versions that were tested:

Thanks again for your input!

I've added iri.ini recently though in this installation it is used for some extra options.
You can choose to put neighbors in the iri.ini (/var/lib/iri/iri.ini) or in the files shown here http://iri-playbook.readthedocs.io/en/docs/post-installation.html#adding-or-removing-neighbors
In iri.ini follow the syntax as noted in the IRI docs: https://github.com/iotaledger/iri#ini-file

Hi all, I've configured the iri-playbook (automatic installer) to allow installation of individual components.

What does this mean? If you already installed IRI via any guide, you can choose to add to it IOTA Peer Manager, and/or the monitoring+graphs from Chris Holliday. If anyone would like to test this and provide feed back, most appreciated! See: Install components

Nelson is included, but not installed by default as it is still in beta.
http://iri-playbook.readthedocs.io/en/master/installation.html#install-nelson

I think it is too early to add an automatic update. Update of nelson is quite easy (one command).
I believe that at this stage it is better for people to be aware when there is an update, as updates might change functionality or the configurations considerably.

Thanks!

I have heard of others that had the same, seems that in some situations the bottom most lines are missing.
How are you connected to your server? SSH? If so, with which SSH client?

Same here, but I see the bottom lines (in screen session, no screen session, the same)
Can you confirm this is still a problem? (you can test with "cd /opt/iri-playbook" and then "bash fullnode_install.sh", just reply "n")

I can confirm: manual run "bash fullnode_install.sh" is not a problem. running from the quick start with "bash <(curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nuriel77/iri-playbook/master/fullnode_install.sh)" produces this:

Aha, I know what happened there.
Need to add a little "-s" for curl there:

bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nuriel77/iri-playbook/master/fullnode_install.sh)

Can you try the above command and see if that fixes the issue?
If so, I will add it to the docs.

Thanks.
