Install the Liota v2 package on your gateway and run as a root user.


  1. Copy the Liota v2 package to the gateway where Liota must be installed.
  2. Navigate to the folder containing the Liota package and run the following commands:
    tar xvzf liota.2.0.0.tar.gz
    cd liota
    python install


The script installs Liota as a root user, copies the configuration files from /usr/lib/liota/config/ to /etc/liota, creates the /var/log/liota directory, sets the library path LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/vmware/iotc-agent/lib/ <iotc-agent installation directory>, and starts the Liota daemon.

For the Liota service to start automatically on reboot, copy the liota.service script from the scripts folder to the /etc/init.d/ location and enable the Liota service according to your operating system (Debian, Ubuntu, RHEL, or CentOS).

What to do next

Onboard the gateway using Liota.
