On some systems the Java based installer may fail to run with a notice as shown below even though you are supplying the -c argument.

You can do that with the following yum command on RHEL8.

Overview

Two different methods are provided to install APPX on Linux/Unix. There is a GUI installer and a Console Mode (character mode) installer. The same installer is used for both methods. The installer will automatically detect if it is being run as a command or from a GUI Desktop, although in some cases you may have to add "-c" to the command line to force the character installer. Regardless of which installation method is used, the result is the same. A typical APPX installation on a system where APPX has not been previously installed performs the following steps:

The first time that APPX is run after the installation wizard completes, several screens will be presented to allow you to configure APPX and complete the installation of APPX.

Add APPX System Administrators to the APPX User File

You must identify which users are to be allowed to initially run APPX. You must add at least one user. During the installation of APPX, an O/S user named "appx" was created. As a matter of convention, you should add the "appx" user to the APPX user file as an APPX System Administrator. After adding a user, you may identify additional users or you may proceed by clicking on the Next button.

Screenshot-APPX_-_localhost:0.png

Configure the APPX Login Manager Service and the the APPX Audit Manager Service

If you want to allow remote clients to connect to your APPX installation, you should configure the APPX Login Manager Service by entering a Connection Port number. The Connection Port number is used by the various types of APPX clients that connect to APPX from a remote location. If you do not want to allow remote connections, blank out the Connection Port number.

If you intend to enable the file I/O audit logging feature of APPX, you should configure the APPX Audit Log Service by entering a Logging Port number. The Logging Port number is used by APPX to log file I/O audit information. If you are not going to use this feature of APPX, blank out the Logging Port number.

You may change these port numbers to be any other TCP/IP port numbers that are not already being used by your system but, as a matter of convention, you may want to use the numbers that are already filled in on this screen. After you have entered the appropriate port numbers, click on the "Start Services" button to create the services and start them.

If you do not want to configure either of the services, click on the Skip button. You can always configure the services at a later time.

You can click on the Advanced button to review and edit additional options relating to configuring the APPX Login Manager Service.

Screenshot-APPX_-_localhost:0-1.png

The Advanced Settings screen allows you to specify the Authentication Method that is to be used by the APPX Login Manager service. If you choose HT authentication, you will also need to provide the name of the HT password file.

You must also specify the directory where the APPX Login Manager and the APPX Audit Log Manager commands are installed. Unless you have moved them to a different directory, you should accept the default directory.

You must also specify the "APPXPATH" directory. You should accept the default APPXPATH directory that is provided unless instructed to change it by an APPX tech support technician.

Screenshot-APPX_-_localhost:0-2.png

Install Your APPX License Key

Finally, you must install your APPX license key. The license key is usually provided as an attachment on an e-mail.

Two different methods are provided to install APPX on Linux. There is a GUI installer and a Console Mode installer. The same installer is used for both methods.

Add Users to the APPX User File

You must identify which users are to be allowed to initially run APPX.  You must add at least one user.  During the installation of APPX, an O/S user named "appx" was created.  As a matter of convention, you should add the "appx" user to the APPX user file as an APPX System Administrator.  After adding a user, you may identify additional users or you may proceed by clicking on the Next button.

If you want to allow remote clients to connect to your APPX installation, you should configure the APPX Login Manager Service by entering a Connection Port number. The Connection Port number is used by the various types of APPX clients that connect to APPX from a remote location.  If you do not want to allow remote connections, blank out the Connection Port number.

If you intend to enable the file I/O audit logging feature of APPX, you should configure the APPX Audit Log Service by entering a Logging Port number.  The Logging Port number is used by APPX to log file I/O audit information.  If you are not going to use this feature of APPX, blank out the Logging Port number.

Run APPX to Complete the Installation

After you complete the installation of APPX, you will need to run APPX to install your license and complete the configuration of the APPX environment.  When you run the APPX Client, you will be presented with the APPX Client Login dialog.  If the Remote tab is selected, click on the Local tab.

When you click on the Local tab, you should see an APPX Client Login dialog similar to that show below.  Click on the Connect button to run APPX.

Identify initial APPX users

You must identify which users are to be allowed to run APPX.  The APPX installer created an OS user named "appx".  This user has also been added to the APPX user file and has been designated as an APPX System Administrator.  You may identify additional users at this time or you may proceed by clicking on the Next button.

Configure the APPX Login Manager Service and the the APPX Audit Log Service

The connection port number is used by the various types of APPX clients that connect to APPX from a remote location.  If you do not want to allow remote connections, blank out the Connection Port number.

The Logging Port is used by APPX to log file I/O audit information.  If you are not going to use this feature of APPX, blank out the Logging Port number.

You may change these port numbers to any other TCP/IP port numbers that are not already being used by your system but, as a matter of convention, you may want to use the number that are already filled in on this screen.

You must also specify the directory where the APPX Login Manager and the APPX Audit Log Manager commands are installed.  Unless you have moved them to a different directory, you should accept the default directory.

You must also specify the "APPXPATH" directory.  You should accept the default APPXPATH directory that is provided unless instructed to change it by an APPX tech support technician.
