Linux-UNIX: Installing and uninstalling the S-TAP with Solaris native installer

Before you begin


  1. 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).
  2. Identify the IP address of the collector that will control this S-TAP, and to which this S-TAP will report and verify connectivity between the database server and the collector.
  3. Copy the S-TAP installer to the local disk on the database server, typically to /tmp.
  4. Enter the pkgadd command to run the installer using the selected file:
    pkgadd -d <filename>.pkg

    The shell installer is extracted under /usr/local/guardium

  5. Continue with running the interactive installer of the installation procedure, running the extracted shell installer script rather than the default installation script for the operating system version.
