Question: How do I install a Traverse Linux DGE or DGEx?
Answer: Read important notes below:
- Unlike Windows, Linux does not have a DGEx installer; instead the Linux DGE installer is used to upgrade or install a Linux DGEx.
- If it is a DGEx and not a DGE, you may optionally stop the "performance and event database" component.
- For upgrading a Linux DGEx, you would apply the same installation steps with a Linux DGE installer.
Steps to install/configure: Please see the Installing Traverse on UNIX Platforms section of the user guide for preliminary installation steps.
- After you execute the "install.sh" file on the server you will need to provide the following:
- End User License Agreement.
- Do you wish to continue with installation?
- Enter the top level directory.
- After this section of the install you will be prompted with Component Selection:
Note: The  brackets are for default selections, please either choose y/n.
- In this section please select the same options for both a DGE/DGEx:
- Will this server run the provisioning data: n
- Will this server run the web application: n
- Will this server run the monitors: y
After executing and completing the install, the configuration in the Traverse Web Application determines whether the install will act as DGE or DGEx:
To add it as a DGE:
- Open the Web Application and add it as a DGE under 'Superuser > DGE MGMT'. It will perform as a DGE.
To add it as DGEx:
- Open the Web Application and add it as a DGE Extension under 'Superuser > DGE MGMT'. It will perform as a DGE Extension rather than a full DGE.
