This post is a step-by-step guide describing the common installation tasks for Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) Remote Data Gateway (RDG)
This post is used by the scenarios noted in the companion blog Deploying Remote Data Gateway in Oracle Analytics Cloud for Data Visualization
Published on October 15, 2019
Oracle Analytics Cloud version 105.3.x, 105.4x
MacBook Pro OS 10.13.6
Windows Server R12 Compute Instance
Linux 7.2 / 7.7 Compute Instance
Before You Begin
Installing Remote Data Gateway
Before You Begin
Installing RDG requires the following common items:
Credentials and Privileges to install software on the RDG host.
Database connection information and credentials for validating the installation.
For Linux and Windows Servers
The IP address or host name where RDG is to be installed.
A Graphical User Interface or alternatives such as VNC and X11
The Microsoft Remote Desktop (RDP) utility if accessing remote Windows servers.
The steps for all platforms are documented in Install Data Gateway.
Installing RDG on Windows
Installing RDG on MAC
Installing RDG on Linux
Installing Additional RDG Agents on Linux
Connect to the RDG host via RDP if necessary.
There is not a standalone installer. Extract the contents of the downloaded ZIP file to a desired directory.
Unpack the ZIP file contents to the /Application folder.
Installing Remote Data Gateway on Linux requires a GUI. If the host does not have one, consider installing the X11 system. Pointers can be found in Preparing Linux for Oracle Remote Data Gateway.
Start the X11 server on your client machine e.g. XQuartz on Mac or XMing on Windows
ssh -i < private key path > <user>@< IP address or host name >
If using X11:
ssh -X -i < private key path > <user>@< IP address or host name >
These steps assume the installer was downloaded or uploaded to the /tmp directory.
mv /tmp/<name of installer>.zip> ~
unzip <name of installer>.zip
chmod 777 <name of bin file>.bin
./<name of bin file>.bin
Return to the SSH session and type the status command. Make a note of the HTTP Port and the URL for use in configuring RDG
If additional agents are desired on the same Linux host, rerun the installer and choose a different installation location. This spawns another agent process using a different HTTP port.

RDG is now ready for the scenario-specific pre-configuration steps described in the various scenario-specific posts.
