Installing Manually on Solaris

The Management Agent is available for Oracle Solaris on the SPARC and x86-64 architectures. For information on the supported platforms, see Table 5.1.

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

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

  2. Give the following commands as the root user:

    # cp /cdrom/install/solaris/ssh-mgmt-agent-<v>-<arch>.pkg.Z .
    # uncompress ssh-mgmt-agent-<v>-<arch>.pkg.Z
    # pkgadd -d ssh-mgmt-agent-<v>-<arch>.pkg all
    

    In the command, <v> is the current release version of the Management Agent (for example 6.3.3.123) and <arch> is the architecture and version of the Solaris operating system (solaris-8-10-sparc or solaris-10-x86_64).

    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 (using, for example, 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
