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?
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!
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 Collectordrwxr-xr-x. 6 root root 72 Jan 5 16:50 Controllerdrwxr-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 Appliancedrwxr-xr-x 3 layer7 layer7 4096 Dec 13 2016 Collectordrwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Dec 13 2016 Controllerdrwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 Dec 13 2016 EnterpriseManagerdrwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 Dec 13 2016 Gatewaydrwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Dec 13 2016 JDKdrwxr-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.
