How to install or configure endpoints in a DMZ

News Tivoli Management Framework (TMF) Recommended Links Documentation Tivoli Enterprise Console Tivoli Gateway Proxy
Troubleshooting Tivoli Framework Troubleshooting endpoints Gateway Troubleshooting Using Log Files to Troubleshoot Tivoli Environment Humor Etc

Tarball installation is best for DMZ.  Information from three places need to be coped: /etc/Tivoli, /etc/inet.d (startup scripts) and /opt/tivoli

Do a full install on the same version of Unix/Linux that you plan to mirgre installation to. Then tar up the necessary contents from an existing endpoint. Throw a wrapper script around it to untar it.

Brandon Mitchell's  created scripts for creation of a tarball:

tar tvf FWK-ep.tar

Installing endpoints in a DMZ

The following sections describe how to install or configure endpoints in a DMZ. See also Tivoli Gateway Proxy

Installing the endpoints from scratch

Installing UNIX endpoints using the winstlcf command across a firewall is supported only if the firewall allows rexec or ssh traffic to pass. Rexec is probably not enabled in a production environment. Alternatively, you can use of of the following methods:

Connecting endpoints that are already present in the Tivoli region

From the command line interface, you can verify the Endpoint Manager exists through the wls command.

RE [ITM] winstlcf could not determine INTERP - msg#00200 - sysutils.tivoli.general

Have you checked if the Linux has rcmd service active in the inetd.conf ? In general Linux distros does not make it active by default, and winstlcf is based on remote commands.

Good luck!

I have had the best luck with Linux endpoint installations using the Brandon
Mitchell approach of tarballing the endpoint image for the linux-ix86 interp
and installing that from the Linux server. I am using LCF v41100 with no

Let me know if you need guidance. You may already use this solution for DMZ
installations (pre-TMF411, that is).

Best of luck,

Now, at the endpoint we dropped the line inserted before to solve TMR name
and a new entry on the endpoint DNS was made so the TMR name could be
resolved by DNS and not by /etc/hosts at the endpoint.

But the problem was not solved and winstlcf still complaining.
