    Hi All,

    We have APM 10.7 installed. We want to install TIM on CentOS. We downloaded the file. It is showing name.image file. Unable to understand how to proceed. There is good document to install it on Linux but there is no any proper doc to install it on CentOS. Kindly share the steps. .

    Below is the TIM  media image  for CentOS which I downloaded from CA support site.




    Regards
    CK

    Hi CK,

    what you downloaded are the TIM Images for the MTP/vMTP appliance. What you require is the TIM archive for regular CentOS/RedHat, see below.

    Package name would be: GEN500000000000915.tar, look for  APM Transaction Impact Monitor TIM r10.7.0.0 SP3 RH Linux in the Download search UI.

    Hi Jörg,

    Thanks for update. We also downloaded the suggested file.  I can see there are 2 files, which I need to extract.

    Kindly update supported version of CentOS as per files . Also it will be nice if you can share the details steps for installation with CentOS dependency package



    Regards
    CK

    Hi CK,
    please check the file names. One has el5 and one el6 in the name. el5 is for Enterprise Linux/CentOS 5 and el6 for Enterprise Linux/CentOS 6.
    If you need it for Enterprise Linux 7, please open a case to support for them to provide you a suitable release (Not officially available on our Download site).

    The installer "timInstall.bin" will extract the uuencoded TIM RPM binary archive + scripts, and install the software using RPM in the process.
    As with all RPM packages, the RPM package manager will identify the dependencies and install these while installing the TIM software. So it should not pose a problem if your system has access to the CentOS repositories.

    Regards

    Jörg
