This is Part 2 of the blog series (The first part of the series can be accessed here). The aim of the blog post is to provide useful tips, which will enable the installation of the on premise Gateway for Oracle API Platform Cloud Services. If you want to know more about the product, then you can refer here.
The following tips are based on some of the scenarios, we have observed in production.
Essentially,to get past the entropy problem, you need to do the following (for Linux):
rngd -r /dev/urandom -o /dev/random -b
64040: Specified template does not exist or is not a file: "/d01/apipcs/app/oracle/gateway/run/build/apiplatform_gateway-services_template.jar".
64040: Provide a valid template location.

The above is just an example but any file not found kind of error during the "configure" action is an indication that the previous step (which is the "install" action), did not complete successfully. Please refer to the "gatewayInstall.log" and "main.log", as this will point to why the install might have had errors even if the install process might have completed.
So that is all for today. We will be back with more tips soon. Happy API management with the Oracle API Platform Cloud Services.
