Before you begin

This example deployment script is designed to use a specific set of tools and protocols and depends on certain settings being configured in your environment.

If you decide to follow this example to create your own deployment script, you need to perform certain steps before you begin:

See for more information about Wget.
Ensure that the remote hosts to which you are deploying the Agent Manager have enough space in the /tmp directory for the installer to be downloaded to that location.

Remember that you do not need to follow all parts of the example as described. For example, if you create a script, you might choose to use cURL instead of Wget to retrieve the Agent Manager installers.

Example: Creating and running an Agent Manager deployment script

This section outlines the creation and use of an example deployment script and contains suggestions for customizing this type of script to suit your environment.

If you create your own script by following this example, you can use it to install and run the Agent Manager on the hosts you specify.

Part 1: Create the working directory and script file

On the machine from which you deploy the Agent Manager to the remote hosts, create a working directory and create the script file within it using a text editor such as vi.

In this example, the working directory is fglaminstall and the script file is

Part 2: Create a list of hosts

The script that you are creating depends on a text file that lists the names of the hosts to which you are deploying the Agent Manager.

In this example, the text file is called hostnames, is located in the fglaminstall directory, and includes a list of comma-separated host name and operating system pairs. List all of the UNIX® hosts to which you want to deploy the Agent Manager. For example:

The same format that is used in the example above to specify the operating systems is used in Part 4: Specify the script commands .
