Agents must always be deployed manually on Linux computers. To install an agent, complete the following steps:
- Log in to the target computer under the root account. If you log in via telnet, log in using a normal account and then use the su command.
- Copy the adcscm_package.linux_intel.sh installation script to a local folder on the target computer. If you use a protocol with text and binary modes for copying (for example, FTP), make sure the mode is set to binary before the copying starts.
Start the script:
You will be prompted to supply the path to the installation directory.
After the installation, the agent will be started automatically.
Make sure that you have enough disk space for the event cache, which is located in /var/InTrust by default. You can change the location by editing the agent.ini file located in the directory where you install the agent. If you want to make agent configuration changes, you must complete them before you establish a connection with the InTrust server.
