Prerequisites Application Control for Linux

Essential prerequisites for the installation and configuration of Ivanti Application Control for Linux 2022.4 are described below.

Please note that where a release version of third-party software is specified, this should be seen as a minimum.

Windows Server Machine

Ivanti Application Control for Linux 2022.4 is intended to be used with a remote database server which can be configured post install to work with your local database instance.

Operating System

Windows 10 Enterprise edition

Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019

It is strongly recommended that a restore point is first created in your primary Windows machine (the backend).

.NET Framework

.NET Framework 4.8 Runtime must be available on the Windows server machine prior to the installation of Application Control for Linux.

Internet Information Services - IIS

IIS needs to be installed from the Server Manager prior to AC for Linux installation.

Microsoft .NET 5.0.13 Windows Server Hosting is needed for this release. Please clear the 5.0.15 version if present on the server.


A local or networked SQL database must be available before the installation of Application Control for Linux:

Microsoft® SQL Server® 2017 Express (or later), or a full license for SQL Server (2016, 2017 or 2019).

Cleanup of any previously installed Application Control for Linux AcDatabase on the SQL server is required. Ensure that any pre-release version of AcDatabase is manually deleted before starting a new installation.

Windows Authentication - WinAUTH

If you are using Windows Authentication, the database administrator must create a new security login on the database server. It needs to match your Windows Server backend and the domain, for example:


This can be accomplished by accessing your MSSQL server via a management tool, then:

  • Expanding Security/Logins

  • Right click on Logins

  • Choose New Login

  • In the Login Name field put the name, Domain\Backend$, and make this user a dbcreator.

Linux Endpoints

These are the Linux operating systems supported:

  • CentOS 7.x, and 8.x

  • Red Hat 7.x and 8.x

  • Oracle 7.x and 8.x

  • Fedora 3x

Notes on the installation:

  • Please ensure Kernel 5.x is installed on the Linux device prior to Ivanti Application Control for Linux R3 installation.

  • Engine installation via Manifest is supported for CentOS 7.x and 8.x and Red Hat 7.x and 8.x in this release.

It is strongly recommended that backups of Linux endpoint machines are generated.

Information is provided for both manifest install feature and also for manual installation of agent and engine components.
