Usage examples

TMP6400 usage example installing release 2-4-24 on a CentOS 5 64 bits host:

 TBToolPack-2.4.24-Linux-centos5-x86_64-Install

TMG3200/TMG800

For the TMG3200/TMG800 you need to use the right installer.

WARNING: Failure to use the correct installer for the TMG3200/TMG800 will damage your system.

Follow this link for the How to select the proper TBLinux installer

TMG3200/TMG800 usage example, installing release 2-4-24:

Warning: For TMG3200/TMG800 setting --primip and --redip is mandatory and needs to be set to --primip 172.31.1.2 --redip 172.31.1.2.

 TBToolPack-2.4.24-Linux-tbrel-1-28-ppc-Install --primip 172.31.1.2 --redip 172.31.1.2

Toolpack Multi system support

Toolpack installer now allows to have more than one setup being configured on the same host.

To enable this feature, the directory tree changed a little, here's what it looks like now:

 /lib/tb/toolpack/setup/12358/service
 /lib/tb/toolpack/setup/12358/2.4/apps
 /lib/tb/toolpack/setup/12358/2.4/licenses
 /lib/tb/toolpack/setup/12358/2.4

Note: 12358 was added in the setup path.

Each setup is installed as a service of the Operating System, under the following name:

 tbtoolpack_${SystemId}  -> ie: tbtoolpack_12358

Each service instance can be managed individually using "tbtoolpack" command.

 tbtoolpack start 12358
 tbtoolpack stop 12390

Note: If no SystemId is given, the tbtoolpack will prompt the user to select one among the installed one.
