Docker installation from Customer Care - Adaptive Plugins - BlueCat Gateway - 20.6.1

Failover Package Administration Guide

BlueCat Gateway

  • You must have permission to import and load the BlueCat Gateway instance.
  • You must have a BlueCat Customer Care account.

To install the custom Gateway image from Customer Care:

  1. Download the AdaptivePlugin_DNS_Master_Failover_20.5.2.tar.gz file from BlueCat Customer Care.
  2. Copy the AdaptivePlugin_DNS_Master_Failover_20.5.2.tar.gz file to the VM that will be running the BlueCat Gateway instance.
  3. Run the following command to load the BlueCat Gateway instance:
    docker load -i <path_to_image>/AdaptivePlugin_DNS_Master_Failover_20.5.2.tar.gz
  4. Review the ports used on the host machine that is installing the Gateway instance using the following command:
    sudo docker ps -a
    In the following example output, ports 80 and 443 are used:
    STATUS          PORTS                                         NAMES
    Up 34 minutes>8000/tcp,>44300/tcp  gateway_20_3_1
  5. Run the custom Gateway image using the following command:
    sudo docker run -d \
    -p <http_port>:8000 \
    -p <https_port>:44300 \
    -v <path_to_mapped_log_directory_for_system_logs>:/logs/ \
    -e BAM_IP=<your_bam_ip_address>  \
    -e LOCAL_USER_ID=<userid> \
    --name dns_master_failover \

    Where <http_port> and <https_port> represent different ports than those used by the Gateway instance. For example, you can set port 81 as the <http_port> and port 444 as the <https_port> values.
