The following section describes the process to deploy BlueCat Gateway, or BlueCat Gateway Adaptive Application, or Plugin when BDDS has access to either a cloud or local image repository.

  • If pulling an image from a cloud repository, you must set a DNS resolver on the BDDS. For more information, refer to DNS Resolver.
  • If pulling images from a cloud repository, you must modify the BDDS firewall rules to allow BDDS to reach the repository. For details, refer to articles 17871 and 16200 on BlueCat Customer Care.
    Note: BlueCat recommends pulling images from cloud repositories only for BDDS appliances in lab environments, but not in production.
  • If pulling images from a local repository (with BDDS behind an internet firewall), you must set the necessary routing to allow BDDS to reach the repository.
  • If your BDDS is behind a firewall (even in a Lab environment), you must copy a Gateway image directly to the BDDS to enable Gateway Service. For details, refer to Deploying custom images to a Production Environment.
