Installing AMP on RHEL 5.3 - AMP version 6.3+ (GUI mode) :-

Aruba Employee

This article describes the process for installing on RHEL 5.3+. This currently applies to all AMP versions after 6.2.3 (i.e. 6.3.x and beyond). For our purpose - this is based on doing the installation in GUI mode (for TEXT mode, please see the following for the installation instructions: http://kb.airwave.com/?sid=50140000000MjCt)

For SAN or LVM:


"You can only edit LVM volume groups in GUI installation mode. In text installation mode, you can assign mount points to existing logical volumes."
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/custom-guide/ch-lvm.html

1. Download the RedHat Install CDs from rhn.redhat.com

2. Burn the CDs

3. Boot off of the first CD and select the **GUI** option

4. Select English for the two language options

5. Enter the installation number. Then proceed to GUI installation.

6. Auto partition (suggested)

7. Assign a static IP address and set gateway/netmask

8. Pick timezone

9. Customize the package installation now

10. Unselect everything but editors, text based internet, web server, and the base package (For list of package rpms: http://kb.airwave.com/?sid=50140000000ZzVa)

11. Put in the appropriate CDs.

12. After it boots you will get a menu. Configure the firewall options and disable the firewall and selinux.

(from this point on, things are done from the command line)
13. Install AMP rpm file (contact support@airwave.com for the link to the latest rpm file on our web server). It will have the form of:
# rpm -Uvh AMP-6.x.x.rpm
For example:
# rpm -Uvh AMP-6.3.7.rpm

14. rhn_register to get yum working.

15. Run the yum install to install needed packages:
* yum install perl-Digest-HMAC
* yum install compat-readline43
* yum install lm_sensors
* yum install libtool-ltdl
* yum install xinetd
* yum install postfix
* yum install vsftpd
* yum install subversion-perl
* yum install openssl097a

16. Remove rpm:
* rpm -e sendmail

17. Run amp-install
# ./amp-install

At this point, you can follow the steps in the QuickStart Guide found at http://www.airwave.com/support/download/.

Some Known Gotchas:

During amp-install, when auto-populating, some versions of RedHat will require you to input the Gateway again (as the location of the Gateway line moved to /etc/sysconfig/network).
