Complete the following steps to create an AMI for ASE:

  1. Create an RHEL 7.6 or Ubuntu 16.04 LTS EC2 instance
  2. Install the AWS CLI by completing the following steps:
    1. Install Python 2.7
    2. Enter the following command:
      sudo curl "" -o ""
    3. Unzip the CLI bundle
      sudo unzip
    4. Install the CLI:
      sudo ./awscli-bundle/install -i /usr/local/aws -b /usr/bin/aws
  3. Download the ASE AWS binary. After downloading the file, copy the ASE file to the /optdirectory.
  4. Untar the binary in the EC2 instance. At the command prompt, type the following command to untar the ASE file:
    tar –zxvf <filename>
    For example:

    tar –zxvf ase-rhel-4.0.tar.gz

  5. To verify that ASE successfully installed, enter the ls command at the command prompt. This should list the pingidentity directory and the build's tar file. For example:
    /opt/$ ls
    pingidentity ase-rhel-4.0.tar.gz
  6. Change directory to /opt/pingidentity/ase/bin
  7. Run the aws script:
    /opt/pingidentity/ase/bin$sudo ./ aws
    Installing ASE service for AWS Autoscale
    This script will install ASE as a service

    Starting service installation
    RHEL7.6 detected, installing ASE service
    Created symlink from /etc/systemd/system/ to /etc/systemd/system/ase.service.
    ASE service successfully installed
  8. Create an AMI using this EC2 instance.

    When you are creating the AMI, do not select the “No Reboot” option.
