After the operating system has been installed on the AMD and it is activated, perform the following configuration steps.

For a detailed description of the required configuration steps, see System Pre-Configuration.


For correct operation, the AMD requires the use of the root account for running all of the traffic monitoring and related processes. This is the default mode of AMD operation after the AMD software is installed. Do not attempt to change these settings in any way or you will prevent the AMD from operating correctly. Do not modify the startup scripts that activate traffic monitoring services and do not attempt to manually stop and start traffic monitoring services as a user other than root.

Also, ensure that you are logged in as root before attempting to edit any of the configuration files. Most AMD configuration actions are performed with dedicated software tools and utilities, but there may be situations when a configuration file must be edited directly.

Most of the configuration actions for the AMD software are performed using the rtminst program. This program is installed as part of the adlexrtm package and can be accessed by the root user through the rtminst command.

You must have root user privileges to issue the rtminst command from the operating system prompt.

The main menu gives you access to specific AMD configuration options. Each menu option has a number. To select an option, enter the corresponding number and press [Enter]. Enter [X] to exit to the main menu.
