Other Prerequisites to Install Signalware on a Linux Platform

 

The following are the prerequisites to install Signalware on a Linux platform:

  • Uninstall any operating system Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) packages before installing Signalware. For example, none of the following packages should be installed:

  • Copy the Signalware 9 license file to the /etc directory.

    • If you are migrating from an existing installation, you can use the existing Signalware 9 license as long as the license is applied on the same host (hostid).

    • To obtain a new license file for Signalware 9, contact your Juniper Networks representative.

  • Create a UNIX user account called siguser as a member of the users group.

  • Download Signalware packages to a temporary working directory or copy from a Signalware CD.

    • For Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3 or later, download “Signalware 9 SP6.v” (base package) and “Signalware 9 SP6.A” (upgrade).

  • Install the Signalware packages.

    • For Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3 or later, install the “Signalware 9 SP6.v” package first and then upgrade to “Signalware 9 SP6.A”.

  • To troubleshoot errors that might occur during the installation and configuration process, see Troubleshooting Signalware Installation and Configuration.

On RHEL 7.5 or later, you must disable the kernel address space layout randomization (KASLR) feature on Linux Kernel. For more information on how to disable the KASLR feature, see Table 35.
