RedHat/CentOS 7 ECGCDRLoader Installation


  • A clean install of CentOS 7.
  • This is not an upgrade.
  • Credentials to access the ECGCDRLoader server as root.
  • Credentials to access the connected BroadWorks Application Server(s).
  • Working knowledge of ssh and file transfer tool such as scp.


The guide is split into sections based on the server or machine that the operations should be performed. It is also in chronological order. Performing the steps from top to bottom is the desired procedure.

Notes for upgrading from pre ECGCDRLoader 4.3.2

If upgrading from a pre RPM based ECGCDRLoader (< 4.3.2) the following pre-installation step will need to be taken.

ECGCDRLoader Server

  • Step: P-1
    1. Stop ECGCDRLoader
    2. Delete ECGCDRLoader install directory.
      • This is typically /opt/ECGCDRLoader
      • Make sure to backup any files that you do not want to lose, i.e. previous configurations.
    3. Remove original run script.
      • Located in /etc/init.d
  • Commands
    1. # service ecgcdrloader stop
    2. # rm -rf /opt/ecgcdrloader
    3. # rm -f /etc/init.d/ecgcdrloader

You are now ready to proceed with the installation.
