Linux and UNIX systems: System details and checks

Verify you have these system details, and that your database is communicating with the Guardium System.

  • Obtain the IP address of the database server on which you are installing S-TAP. If virtual IPs are used, note those as well (you will need to configure those later, when completing the configuration).
  • If installing on the central manager, identify the IP address of the collector that will control this S-TAP, and to which this S-TAP will report.
  • Verify connectivity between the database server and the collector. On the database, enter nmap -p <port> <ip_address>. For example, to check that port 16018 (the port Guardium® uses for TLS) is reachable at IP address, enter the command
    nmap -p 16018
    Typical output looks like:
    Starting nmap V. 3.00 Interesting ports on ( Port State Service 16018/tcp open unknown
