Linux installation procedure

  1. The Linux installer is a self-unpacking binary. You may need to set file permissions to executable before running it:
            chmod +x ./lmadmin-i86_lsb-11_13_0_0.bin
          
  2. Both the installer and lmadmin are 32-bit executables and require LSB support installed. If you're installing it on an x64 OS, first install 32-bit support:
            [Debian/Ubuntu]
            dpkg --add-architecture i386
            apt-get update
          
  3. LSB support is required on both 32-bit and 64-bit OS:
            [Redhat/Fedora]
            yum install redhat-lsb-core
            [Debian/Ubuntu]
            apt-get install lsb-core
          
  4. You may also need to install some additional 32-bit libraries manually, e.g.:
            [Redhat/Fedora]
            yum install glibc.i686 libstdc++.i686
            [Debian/Ubuntu]
            apt-get install lib32gcc1 libc6-i686:i386 libstdc++6:i386
          
  5. If you decided to use 'lmgrd' instead of 'lmadmin', in addition you will have to:
    sudo mkdir /usr/tmp
    sudo chmod 777 /usr/tmp
          

Starting as a service

The Linux installer does not configure the server to start automatically. If your distribution uses SysV style init, check the [install_dir]/examples/service/lmadmin script.

If you used 'lmgrd' instead of 'lmadmin' (and thus don't have the examples/ directory), you can find an example script here.
