How to install SGD 4.4 for a POC

SGD is spectacular software package that allows for secure application publishing. The application can be configured in many ways. These steps are meant to get SGD up and running for a POC. They should not be used for a production deployment.

First off, yes ladies and gentleman RTFM!

It is crucial that DNS be configured correctly for SGD to work. Both the SGD host and the clients that you will use to connect to SGD must be able to resolve the host name of the SGD server.

Get the software.

User and Group Prerequisites and the commands to set them up:
The system must have ttaserv and a ttasys users and a ttaserv group before you can install SGD.
The ttasys user owns all the files and processes used by the SGD server. The ttaserv user owns all the files and processes used by the SGD Web Server.

The SGD server does not require superuser (root) privileges to run. The SGD server starts as the root user and then downgrades to the ttasys user.
# groupadd ttaserv
# useradd -g ttaserv -s /bin/sh -d /export/home/ttasys -m -c ttasys ttasys
# useradd -g ttaserv -s /bin/sh -d /export/home/ttaserv -m -c ttaserv ttaserv
# passwd -l ttasys
# passwd -l ttaserv

SGD is a package so we need to use pkgadd:
# pkgadd -d /tmp/tta-version.sol-sparc.pkg

Once it is installed you are supposed to start it to configure it
# /opt/tarantella/bin/tarantella start

Since this the first time we are starting it is asking us config questions. Take the defaults.

Once the services is started point a web browser at http://<servername>. You will be at the SGD log in prompt.
At this point you will need to configure different applications that you wish to publish. Since everyone will want to publish different apps I will leave that outside the scope of this post.

Happy SGD'ing.

These instructions are not only for a PoC, but must be applied to all SGD-installations :)

I can not see why these instructions may not be used on an production environment.
