Installing AMP on RHEL 5.4 or 5.5 - AMP version 7.0 / 7.1 / 7.2

This article describes the process for installing on RHEL 5.4 or 5.5. This currently applies to all AMP versions 7.0 and after. For our purpose - this is based on doing the installation in TEXT mode.

AWMS 7.0.0+ support RHEL 5.4 installation.
AWMS 7.0.8+ support RHEL 5.5 installation.

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

2. Burn the CDs

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

4. Select English for the two language options

5. Enter the installation number

6. Auto partition (suggested)

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

8. Pick timezone

9. In the package installation screen, select customize software selection

10. Unselect everything but editors, text based internet, web server

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. If you miss the menu during bootup, you can re-enter the menu by enterring:
# system-config-securitylevel-tui

****From here, you have 2 options:

Option 1: If your AMP can reach the internet:

1a. 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-7.x.x.rpm
For example:
# rpm -Uvh AMP-7.x.x.rpm

2a. rhn_register to get yum working.

3a. 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

4a. Install/remove mail packages if necessary (AMP uses postfix by default, but the RedHat-included sendmail can be used instead).
# rpm -e sendmail*

5a. 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/.

Option 2: If your AMP cannot reach the internet:

1b. Insert/mount the AMP install CD (this is not the same as the rpm file - you'll need to download and burn to CD the AMP ISO file from the download page) and change to the directory containing the rpms:
# mount /dev/cdrom /media
# cd /media/CentOS

2b. Install the AMP rpm file:
# rpm -Uvh airwave-amp*

3b. Install the supporting packages:
# rpm -Uvh openssl097*
# rpm -Uvh libtool*
# rpm -Uvh vsftp*

4b. Install/remove mail packages if necessary (AMP uses postfix by default, but the RedHat-included sendmail can be used instead).
# rpm -Uvh postfix*
# rpm -e sendmail*

5b. Run amp-install
# cd /root
# ./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:

The AMP install process will show errors if the additional packages are not installed prior to ./amp-install. Here is an example of the error messages:

===
openssl097 not installed
/root/svn/mercury/src/rpms/install_rpm aw-perl-Crypt-SSLeay-0.57_01-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:

libssl.so.4 is needed by aw-perl-Crypt-SSLeay-0.57_01-1.i386
make[3]: *** [perllib] Error 1

libtool not installed
./rpms/install_rpm aw-mod_auth_tacacs-1.0-7 rpms/aw-mod_auth_tacacs-1.0-7.i386.rpm;

error: Failed dependencies:

make[2]: *** [freeradius] Error 1

vsftp not installed
/bin/cp -f lib/conf/vsftpd.conf /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
/bin/cp: cannot create regular file `/etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf': No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [/etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf] Error 1

This is covered in step 3a or 3b, where these packages are loaded manually.
