Installing Mono

To use a Linux machine as a VSA proxy, install the Mono framework on an AWS instance running CentOS or RHEL.

Before You Begin

  • To deploy a Linux machine as a VSA proxy, the machine must run one of the following operating system versions:
    • CentOS 7.4
    • RHEL 7.5
  • To add the Mono repository to your system, execute the commands in a root shell. For more information, see Add the Mono repository to your system.
  • You must install Mono Version 5.16.


  1. Install base packages:

    sudo yum -y groupinstall base

  2. Import the public key that is used to verify the Mono package to install:

    sudo rpm --import "http://keyserver.ubuntu.com/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF"

  3. Add and enable a new yum repository from the specified URL:

    sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo http://download.mono-project.com/repo/centos/

  4. Install Mono 5.16:

    sudo yum -y install mono-complete-

  5. Remove the Mono repository:

    sudo rm /etc/yum.repos.d/download.mono-project.com_repo_centos_.repo

From the CommCell Console, add the Linux machine as a client computer, and then install the Virtual Server Agent and MediaAgent packages.
