Run the rngd service on Linux computers

Before installing or upgrading BMC Atrium Orchestrator components on a Linux computer, run the rngd service to ensure that the system has adequate entropy.

  1. Verify that rng-tools is installed on your Linux computer. If it is not, install it, working with your system administrator to ensure that you correctly install the rng-tools for your operating system.
  2. At the command line, run the following command:
    rngd -r /dev/urandom

After installing BMC Atrium Orchestrator, ensure that this command is running at server startup or before starting the  BMC Atrium Orchestrator service.
