The following section outlines the steps to configure Gateway Service on a BDDS appliance.
To configure Gateway on a DNS/DHCP Server:
- From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
- Select the Servers tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.
- Under Servers, click the name of a BDDS. The Details tab for the server opens.
- Click the server name menu and select Service Configuration.
- From the Service Type drop-down menu, select BlueCat Gateway. Address Manager queries the server and returns the current values for the service settings.
Under General Settings, set the following
- Enable Gateway Service—select this check box to enable BlueCat Gateway service; deselect this check box to disable BlueCat Gateway service.
- Ports—enter a list of ports to configure for BlueCat Gateway.
- Environment Variables—enter a list of environment
variables to pull to a container during startup.
Note: Enter only the required environment variable(s) in this field. Do not include the
-eflag. For example,
Under Repository Settings, set the following
- Repository—enter the repository address, for
- Tag—enter the image tag. Do not enter
latest.Tip: BAM will display an error if you enter latest. As a best practice, BlueCat recommends using an image tag to ensure you know which specific image you are using.
- Username—(optional) enter your docker username if the image is on a private repository, for example, if pulling a BlueCat Adaptive Application.
- Password—(optional) enter your docker password. This can either be your Docker password or an encrypted password.
- Repository—enter the repository address, for example
After you click Update, Gateway Service initializes, pulls the images from the cloud or local repository, and initiates the container. Allow some time to register the configuration, after which Address Manager will redirect you to the Service Type dropdown menu page.
