SSH Tectia

Installing Manually on Linux

The Management Agent for Linux platforms is supplied in RPM (Red Hat Package Manager) binary packages. The RPMs are available for Red Hat and SUSE Linux running on Intel x86 platforms. The package is compatible also with the 64-bit versions of Red Hat and SUSE Linux running on x86-64 platforms.

To install the agent manually on Linux, follow these instructions:

  1. Copy the ssh-mgmt-agent installation package to the host to be managed by SSH Tectia Manager.

  2. Give the following command as the root user:

    # rpm --install ssh-mgmt-agent-<v>-linux-x86.rpm
    

    In the command, <v> is the current release version of the Management Agent (for example 6.1.5.123).

    The Management Agent installation will create the configuration directory /etc/opt/ssh-mgmt/agent and the Management Agent will start automatically after the installation has been finished.

  3. Download a valid ICB from the Management Server administration interface (see Downloading ICBs), and copy it to the default location on the target host (for example, by scp, sftp, or web browser):

    /var/opt/ssh-mgmt/agent/icb.dat
    

  4. Restart the Management Agent by issuing the following command:

    # /etc/init.d/ssh-mgmt-agent restart
