While a pure Linux/Unix installer for Fast Data Masker (FDM) is still in the works, below are the steps to be able to run FDM on Linux/UNIX environments using the currently available Windows-based installer. You will need an intermediate machine with a Windows OS (64-bit) to install FDM on. A Java Runtime Environment (JRE 1.70 or higher) is required on both the platforms.
Also, the mapper UI (GTMapper.exe) will not work on Linux/UNIX. You will however be able to run command-line FDM commands that follow this basic syntax:
java -jar Fastdatamasker.jar <connectionFile> <MaskingMapFile> <OptionsFile>
For example, if your connection file name is “connect_Oracle_DB.txt”, the activation key value needs to be added to the file connect_Oracle_DB.txt, as a separate line
with ... replaced by your activation key.
6. If you already have existing batch files (.bat) associated with masking jobs on the Windows platform, copy the Java commands therein to shell script files (.sh) on Linux/UNIX. They should work in similar fashion on both environments.
Feel free to ask questions if you have trouble with any of the steps, or open a support case for further assistance.
This is an old post, since then install of FDM is also possible on Linux. Please see the Documentation on docops.ca.com for later TDM versions 4.x --> "Installing" --> "Install CA Test Data Manager" under the "Install Product Components" section e.g. Install Fast Data Masker on Linux - CA Test Data Manager - 4.5 - CA Technologies Documentation
