Management Console as an RPM

The Management Console RPM allows administrators an opportunity to manage and control Linux packages in a way that complies to their individual corporate IT policies. The teradicimc-<version>.rpm package, when connected to the internet, will automatically update any required dependencies not available on your Linux VM so you can be operational quickly. The RPM is provided as a file for download. A public RPM repository will be available for seamless installs in a future release.

By introducing this RPM package into your network, you accept that there are risks involved in deploying the system, and you acknowledge that you have reviewed the default PCoIP Management Console and CentOS configuration and have performed any other changes to make the security level appropriate for your deployment.

Update your software to the current release

From time to time, updates may be made available, either from support or the developers of CentOS. While we recommend staying current on releases, it is also recommended that you test updates on a test system prior to upgrading your production system or back up a snapshot of the PCoIP Management Console before running the update.

Linux Proficiency

It is expected that administrators of Linux operating systems are proficient at using the Linux OS and have an account with sudo access. Different Linux distributions may require different procedures. We use the Linux CentOS distribution for instructional information.

Dedicated Host

It is recommended that the Management Console host be dedicated for Management Console use only.

Minimum Requirements Validation

The Management Console RPM package will check for the minimum hardware resource requirements (CPU, disk, ram) and fail if it is not met. To disable the minimum requirement check, enter the following command:
sudo MC_NO_CHECK=1 rpm -Uvh teradicimc-<version>.rpm
Disabling the minimum requirements check is not recommended! Lowering minimums may reduce Management Console performance, particularly in large deployments.

Management Console RPM Installation and Removal

With the teradicimc-<version>.rpm and teradicimc-postgresql14-offline-dependencies.tgz packages, you will have everything that Management Console needs in order to work except the firewall exceptions. After installation, make sure that you have configured your firewall and that it complies to your corporate security policies. If you don't have a security policy, you can review the firewall reference that will allow you to get an understanding of what firewall requirements Management Console needs to be operational. Once the firewall exceptions are made, you can upgrade or remove the Management Console as required.

Directions for upgrades are described in Upgrading Management Console Using RPM.

Installation using RPM

These instructions apply to the first time installation of Management Console on a host Linux machine that contains the RPM and offline dependencies tarball.

Installations without Internet Access

If you are a customer without internet access (sometimes referenced as a dark site), you must have all dependencies installed in the Management Console host operating system prior to using the RPM. See Dark Site Deployments for any required dependencies for this release.

  1. Download the RPM, dependency, and script files from the support site and ensure they are located on the Management Console Linux VM.

    You can use a third party tool such as WinSCP to copy and move files into the CentOS/RHEL host operating system.

  2. Login to the CentOS/RHEL host operating system and create a new directory named postgresql14_dependencies under the logged in user directory.

    cd ~
    mkdir postgresql14_dependencies
  3. Move one of the two PostgreSQL 14.1 dependencies file into the new postgresql14_dependencies directory.

    • CentOS 7.9 and RHEL 7.9 RPM dependencies

    • RHEL 8.6 RPM dependencies

  4. Give permission to the appropriate file and run the script.

    • CentOS 7 and RHEL 7 installations

      sudo chmod +x ./
      sudo sh ./ teradicimc-centos-rhel-7x-postgresql14-dependencies.tgz
    • RHEL 8 installations

      sudo chmod +x ./
      sudo sh ./ teradicimc-rhel-8x-postgresql14-dependencies.tgz

    Verify install

    Verify the installed PostgreSQL version is 14.1.
    psql -V
    Sample output
    PostgreSQL Version Verification

  5. Install the RPM following the commands of your Linux distribution.

    • CentOS installations

      sudo yum install teradicimc-<version>.rpm

    • RHEL 7 installations

      1. sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-optional-rpms --enable rhel-7-server-extras-rpms

      2. sudo yum install

      3. From the directory where the RPM file is located, execute sudo yum install teradicimc-<version>.rpm

    • RHEL 8 installations

      1. sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-8-for-x86_64-baseos-rpms --enable rhel-8-for-x86_64-appstream-rpms

      2. sudo yum install

      3. From the directory where the RPM file is located, execute sudo yum install teradicimc-<version>.rpm

  6. After a successful Management Console install, delete the file.


  7. Configure your firewall.

  8. If applicable, enable your HSTS policy. See HTTP Strict Transport Security.

  9. If installing Management Console Enterprise, license your installation.

Remove Management Console

To remove Management Console you will have two choices, remove Management Console or remove Management Console with all its dependencies.

Ignore warning message

Please ignore the following warning message as it does not have any impact on the Management Console uninstallation process.

warning: file remove failed: No such file or directory.

Remove Only Management Console
