This article provides brief information and steps to resolve when two nodes appear after installation of Linux agent.
After Installing a Linux agent (Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, RHEL), two nodes appear under Manage > Nodes. One appears as the normal agent, but the other appears as a Syslog device.
1. Add entry to /etc/hosts.
2. Change the hostname(command as root).
3. Edit the following network file:
nano -w /etc/sysconfig/network hostname=centOS
4. Stop the Agent as a root user.
5. Remove the contego directory.
rm -rf /usr/local/contego
6. Restart the Network.
service network restart
7. Re-Install the Linux Agent.
Once the agent is re-installed, you should only see one node.
Note: If a customer does not want to resolve his environmental issue with the steps provided, this switch should work if added to the end of the spop.conf file in the following ContegoSPOP folder:
