I am a very new user of Dynatrace and would greatly appreciate your help. I am trying to deploy an active gate to Openshift via the use of the operator. I have read through the documentation but am still not 100% certain. Thank you very much for your help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Which version of the Operator are you using?
Only the newer Dynatrace-Operator can deploy active gates, not the dynatrace-oneagent-operator.
Yes, you can either deploy the AG as a container via the operator, or just install one on another VM/Host.
It's not really about better/worse, just depends on what works best for you.
The only difference between the two is that the AGs deployed by the operator currently have a limited set of functionallity:
If you need other functionality, e.g. extensions, you need another AG outside the container anyway.
Just to clarify, if I were to install the active gate. Would it be as simple as to go to manage>settings>deployment status>active gates>install active gates(openshift) > generate token> copy command line … etc.
The documentation describes a method via statefulset but I would be using the operator in this case.
Thank you very much for taking the time to help out. Much appreciated!
If you have not deployed the operator yet you can follow the path you mentioned. If the operator is already installed you don't need to do it again.
Just make sure the dynakube.yaml you use has the section for the active gates mentioned above.
