BlueCat Gateway
Version
22.4.1
Your environment must meet the following requirements before performing any of the tasks described in this document.
Note: If deploying Gateway on a BDDS appliance (Integrity 9.3.1 or greater only), refer to Gateway on BDDS requirements.
BlueCat Gateway is a container image, requiring Docker, or Docker-based container orchestration platforms to operate. BlueCat Gateway is operating system agnostic; the only software required is any supported versions of Docker or supported container orchestration platforms.
Note:
  • If deploying Gateway on a non-BlueCat appliance (i.e., a customer-provided host machine), the customer is responsible for maintaining the host operating system.
  • If deploying Gateway on BlueCat DNS/DHCP Server (Integrity 9.3.1 or greater only), BlueCat is responsible for maintaining the underlying BDDS operating system.
