    Installing the 64 bit Linux or Unix agent Manually

     

    Applies to LDMS 9.5, 9.6 and 2016.x

    *This will apply to most 64 bit *nix Installations with a couple of modifications. I.E. for HPUX. create an HPUX agent and get files from the HPUX folder

     

    Steps:

      1. Ensure the machine has the proper dependencies installed.  *nix Agent Dependencies
      2. Create a Linux64Install folder somewhere to gather files on the Linux machine
      3. Create a 64 Bit Linux agent in the LDMS console named linux64 or whatever you need to name it (try to avoid spaces when naming Linux agents, when we get to the point where we install manually spaces can add headache)
      4. Open c:\program files\landesk\management suite\ldlogon
      5. Copy any .0 files associated with the core to your Linux64Install folder
      6. Make a certs subfolder in your Linux64Install folder and make a copy of the .0 and baseclient64.tar.gz, vulscan64.tar.gz files into it. The agent install consumes the .0 and baseclient64.tar.gz, vulscan64.tar.gz each time when it installs the agent, so if you need to run multiple installs you have quick access
      7. Locate linux64.sh (this will be named whatever you called the agent, same as with a windows agent ini) and copy it to your Linux64Install folder
      8. Browse to c:\program files\landesk\management suite\ldlogon\unix\
      9. Copy rmlinuxclient64.sh to your Linux64Install folder. (best practice to remove old agent first if applicable) typically you can get the most recent removal script from the following page. It is usually shipping but may be more recent

      10. Copy nixconfig.sh to your Linux64Install folder.
      11. Browse to c:\program files\landesk\management suite\ldlogon\unix\linux
      12. Copy baseclient64.tar.gz, vulscan64.tar.gz, and softwaredist.tar.gz to the Linux64Install folder
      13. Using a tool like WinSCP, copy the Linux64Install folder to /tmp on the Linux machine
      14. SSH to Linux machine as root and/or elevate the session after logging in
      15. Change to temp directory cd /tmp/Linux64Install
      16. Allow execute on removal script and install script chmod +x *.sh
      17. Remove old agent if applicable ./rmlinux64client.sh
      18. Install Agent ./linux64.sh
