The following are the instructions for installing the Secure Domain Connector (SDC) from the command line on Linux when the libXP and Motif libraries have not been installed which are required for a basic Spectrum GUI installation.
When installing on Linux, not all releases have the prerequisite libraries installed. This article covers one such scenario.
How to install the DX NetOps Spectrum SDC on a remote host without transferring the full Spectrum installer to the host.
Command line install on Linux for SDC
Terminal install on Linux for SDC
All supported DX NetOps Spectrum releases
Run SDC the installation just as if you were going to run the GUI install. This will extract the SDC installation files.After extracting the SDC install files, there are two ways to run the SDC install from the command line.
Even though the libXP and Motif libraries have not been installed, you can still run a GUI install of SDC. The basic Spectrum GUI install requires the libXP and Motif libraries. However, you can run a GUI install of SDC without these libraries because it uses a jre GUI install using Install Anywhere which does not require these libraries. You will need to set the DISPLAY environment variable and have X-Windows software installed for the redirected display.
Then, as the root user, run the following where <INSTALL DIR> is the base install directory where the installation files have been extracted:
To run a non-GUI command line install, as the root user, run the following where <INSTALL DIR> is the base install directory where the patch files have been extracted:
<INSTALL DIR>/sdmc/linux/install.bin -i Silent
This will install SDC in the /opt/CA/SDMConnector directory. If you wish to have SDC installed in a different directory, run the following command:
<INSTALL DIR>/sdmc/linux/install.bin -i Silent -DUSER_INSTALL_DIR="/app/spectrum"
The above will install SDC in the /app/spectrum directory.
Tar up the install files extracted from the Solution steps above.
# tar -czvf /tmp/sdmc.tar.gz sdmc/
Transfer the sdmc.tar.gz file to the target new SDC host. Extract it using the following. This extracts it to the /tmp directory.
# tar xvzf /tmp/sdmc.tar.gz -C /tmp
