2.2 Single Host Gateway Deployment

For a single host Gateway deployment, the SGD Gateway and a single SGD server are installed on the same host. See Figure 2.2, “Network Diagram for a Single Host Gateway Deployment”.

The advantages of a single host Gateway deployment are as follows:

  • Easy Configuration. You only need to configure a single host.

  • Secure single port access. Access is by a single port, TCP port 443. You only need to open this port in your firewall.

  • IPv6 support. IPv6 support is available by default for this deployment.

  • Gateway discovery. For this deployment, you can use the discovery feature of SGD to automatically discover and configure the Gateway.

Note

In a single host Gateway deployment you cannot use an array with more than one SGD server, or add other Gateways.

2.2.1 Configuring a Single Host Gateway Deployment

Use the following steps to configure a single host Gateway deployment.

Note

Before you begin, ensure that TCP port 443 is open on the host.

  1. Install the SGD software on the host.

    1. Install the main SGD component.

      Follow the steps in Section A.1, “Installing the SGD Server”.

      Ensure that you run the tarantella start command, as instructed by the SGD installation program.

    2. Install the SGD Gateway software.

      Follow the steps in Section A.2, “Installing the SGD Gateway”.

      Ensure that you run the gateway setup command, as instructed by the Gateway installation program.

  2. Stop all running SGD components.

    1. Stop the SGD server.

      # /opt/tarantella/bin/tarantella stop
    2. Stop the SGD Gateway.

      # /opt/SUNWsgdg/bin/gateway stop
  3. Discover and configure the SGD Gateway.

    You use the tarantella discover gateway command to discover and configure an SGD Gateway that is installed on the same host as an SGD server.

    Run the following command:

    # /opt/tarantella/bin/tarantella discover gateway --local
  4. Start all SGD components.

    1. Start the SGD server.

      # /opt/tarantella/bin/tarantella start
    2. Start the SGD Gateway.

      # /opt/SUNWsgdg/bin/gateway start
  5. Log in to SGD.

    1. Using a browser, go to the URL for the Gateway. For example, https://gateway1.example.com.

      The SGD login page is displayed.

    2. Log in using the default SGD Administrator credentials.

      Enter Administrator for the Username and the superuser (root) password for the Password.

      Your SGD workspace is displayed.

  6. Log out of SGD.

    Click the Logout button on your workspace and click OK when prompted for confirmation.
