Deploy Access Gateway Using an OVA Image
The purpose of this guide is to walk through the process of deploying and configuring an Access Gateway instance using an OVA image into a virtualization environment.
- You have reviewed all Prerequisites for Deploying Access Gateway
- Access Gateway must be resolvable via DNS and is required to have a hostname assigned in DNS.
- Static IP Address - Access Gateway requires a static IP address and does not leverage DHCP.
- DNS Server and DNS Hostname (FQDNA fully qualified domain name (FQDN) is the complete domain name for a specific computer, or host, on the internet.) - Access Gateway must be resolvable via a DNS solution that end usersEnd users are people in your org without administrative control. They can authenticate into apps from the icons on their My Applications home page, but they are provisioned, deprovisioned, assigned, and managed by admins. leverage. If end users will be originating from the internet, the Access Gateway solution must be publicly resolvable. It is recommended that split DNS be leveraged so that internal users connect to an internal IP address and external users connect to a public IP address.
All applications integrated with the Access Gateway will be served on the domainA domain is an attribute of an Okta organization. Okta uses a fully-qualified domain name, meaning it always includes the top-level domain (.com, .eu, etc.), but does not include the protocol (https). that constitutes the FQDN.
Access Gateway Virtual Appliance can be deployed into the following virtualization environments:
For detailed instructions please see individual installation deployment guides below.
Anti-virus and Anti-spyware Verification
Note: Okta takes security seriously, the OVA file has been verified through a custom scan before delivery.
See Okta Access Gateway Supported Technologies for a complete list of all supported technologies and versions.
To deploy using VMWare Workstation Player: see the VMWare section in Deploying Access Gateway into VMWare/EXSi .
To deploy using VMWare ESXi/vSphere: see the ESXi/vSphere section in Deploying Access Gateway in to VMWare/EXSi.
To deploy using Oracle Virtual Box: see Deploying Access Gateway Into Oracle Virtual Box.
To deploy using Amazon Web Services: see Deploying Access Gateway to Amazon Web Services
After Okta Access Gateway has been installed there are a number of common post installation tasks that should be performed.
