This project was about developing a custom installation method for the CA API Gateway. Some customers are not allowed to do an appliance install per company policy. So, an alternative installation method had to be developed. The CA API Gateway software appliance contains a different and older Linux OS than the customers target OS. My installation procedure works around these incompatibilities and addresses the fact that part of the appliance software is simply not available in the software installation. Clustering the databases and the appliance have to be done manually which is also covered in my procedure.
