    Hello,

     

    I am able to set up a CA API Gateway Virtual Appliance run under VMware® Workstation or vSphere. But is there any way we can install a CA API Gateway under an existing CentOS box? Also, if that is possible, does CA provide the support?

     

    Regards,

    There is a way to install the CA API Gateway on an existing CentoOS box, and is supported but there is this warning on the CA Wiki"WARNING: The CA API Gateway requires a large amount of RAM and manipulates or replaces system configuration files. CA Technologies strongly recommends installing the Gateway software on a dedicated server. If the server also hosts other services, there is a possibility the changes imposed by the Gateway may conflict with other applications. 

     

    The instructions to install the CA API Gateway on CentOS can be found here: Install the Gateway (Software) - CA API Gateway - 9.2 - CA Technologies Documentation 

     

    Hope this helps!

    Hello wauch01,

     

    I have tried the RPM but seems it is not exactly same as what we get via OVA.

    After RPM installation there is only 3 folders under /opt/SecureSpan

    drwxr-xr-x. 3 layer7 layer7 59 Jan 5 16:50 Collector
    drwxr-xr-x. 6 root root 72 Jan 5 16:50 Controller
    drwxr-xr-x. 5 root root 47 Jan 5 16:51 Gateway

     

    But OVA has more under, e.g.

    drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 4096 Dec 13 2016 Appliance
    drwxr-xr-x 3 layer7 layer7 4096 Dec 13 2016 Collector
    drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Dec 13 2016 Controller
    drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 Dec 13 2016 EnterpriseManager
    drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 Dec 13 2016 Gateway
    drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Dec 13 2016 JDK
    drwxr-xr-x 12 fndsrv fndsrv 4096 Dec 30 00:12 Platform

     

    Is there any more detailed documentation?

    Also, i have noticed that rpm does not install and configure local mysql service either.
