Process for building a new RMU to convert Gen-1 sites to Gen-1.5 sites.

The following guide describes how DFINITY monitors their ICR Sites using the equipment that is already standard in most Gen-1.a sites. If you choose to follow this guide, completing everything up to Best Practices will get you remote access to the RMU and the ability to add additional services via teleport. The Best Practices section does introduce some services that greatly improve the overall experience such as being able to update firmware on all servers remotely.

Please be aware that this guide provides only the foundational steps for setting up a Gen1.5 RMU. It does not encompass comprehensive security hardening for the RMU, nor does it address system maintenance. Responsibility to ensure a secure and well-maintained environment rests with each Node Provider.
