Question

Can I install my Guardium S-TAP into a GIM environment from the DB Server so that the the S-TAP installs immediately ? - (instead of installing via the Guardium Appliance GUI)

Answer

In a GIM environment, some customers prefer to install the S-TAPs from the DB Server as user root to minimise installation delays that can occur when installing the S-TAP via the Guardium Appliance GUI .

This can be achieved by using the correct gim shell installer from the GIM_Packages directory that can be found within the S-TAP product download

The following is an example installing an S-TAP (on Solaris) into an existing GIM environment - note the .gim.sh extension used



    ./guard-bundle-S-TAP-10.1.2_r100595_v10_1_2_1-sunos-5.11-solaris-sparc.gim.sh  -- --ni -k --dir <guardium installation directory> --tapip <nnn.nn.nn.nn> --sqlguardip <nnn.nn.nn.nn>


The S-TAP can then be maintained via the Guardium Appliance GUI via GIM as standard.

The key to this type of S-TAP installation is that this method allows the S-TAP to be installed into the GIM environment from the DB Server instead of as a standalone install of the S-TAP that ends up outside of the GIM environment.
