Deploying a Linux Machine as an Access Node


On this page

You can deploy a Linux machine that runs on CentOS, Oracle Linux, or RHEL to act as an access node.

Note: After you install the Virtual Server package on a Linux machine and start services, the software checks to see whether Mono is installed and, if necessary, installs the required version of the Mono package. You do not need to install the Mono package manually.


  • To deploy a Linux machine as an access node, the machine must run one of the following operating system versions:

    • CentOS 7.4, 7.5, 7.6, 7.7, 7.8, or 7.9

    • Oracle Linux version 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 8.3, 8.4, or 8.5

    • RHEL 7.4, 7.5, 7.6, 7.7, 7.8, 7.9, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 8.3, 8.4, or 8.5


      To use a machine that runs RHEL 7.7 as an access node, you must install the pcre-devel-8.32-17.el7.x86_64 package.

      For RHEL 8 VMs, to install operating system packages that are required to enable automatic installation of Mono, register the VMs with Red Hat.

  • More recent versions of Mono are not supported.
