Server Install from RPM

To install your server from the SIMP Enterprise YUM repository, we’ve provided a pre-configured RPM package. Installing the package will install the GPG key and configure the repository correctly. Don’t forget, the SIMP Enterprise YUM repositories require a valid SIMP EE License key file to be installed at /etc/simp/license.key.


SIMP Server requires a Puppet server to function. If you are not already running Puppet in your environment, install Puppet Community Edition by running:

yum install puppetserver

SIMP can also integrate with Puppet Enterprise. Please contact us if you need assistance installing and configuring Puppet Enterprise.

Install the Current Version

SIMP Server is currently only supported on Red Hat 7 and CentOS 7. Run the following to configure the SIMP Enterprise YUM repository:

yum install

The SIMP Enterprise YUM repository contains a package for each version of SIMP EE.

Run the following to install the latest version of SIMP EE:

yum install simp-enterprise

Install Previous Version

If you need to install a specific version of SIMP EE, such as 6.4.0-0, include the version as a suffix to the package name.

yum install simp-enterprise-6.4.0-0

Post Install Configuration

After installation, configure and start SIMP by following the Initial SIMP Server configuration instructions.

After the simp config and simp bootstrap commands have been executed, the enterprise modules and files will be available to all nodes.
