Note: SIMP Console cannot be installed on the same system as a SIMP Enterprise installation. It is meant to be installed on a separate, independent system. If you attempt to install on a system with SIMP Enterprise installed, you will experience issues.

  1. Obtain a License Key

    • The SIMP Enterprise repositories require a valid license key in order to install or upgrade any enterprise packages, including SIMP Enterprise and SIMP Console. Once you have received your license key file from your account executive, copy it to, or create it as a new file named /etc/simp/license.key on the server where you are installing the SIMP Console.
  2. Create the Configuration File

    • Configuring the system is done by adding settings to the /etc/simp/simp-console.yaml file.

    NOTE: SIMP Console currently supports both .yaml and .yml file extensions for the config file.

    DEPRECATION WARNING: SIMP Console will be moving toward only supporting .yaml for all config files in a future release.

  3. Install the SIMP Release Enterprise Package

    • The SIMP Release package provides the SIMP Enterprise Yum repository configuration and GPG keys needed to install SIMP Enterprise packages.

      yum install
  4. Install the SIMP Console Package

    • Install the simp-console package via yum.

      yum install simp-console
  5. Configure the Database

    • Add database connection details to /etc/simp/simp-console.yaml.
    • See the documenataion here for detailed instructions on installing and configuring a dedicated PostgreSQL environment for SIMP Console.
  6. Enable/Start the Service

service simp-console start
