Errors were encountered while processing:
There is an attempted installation of a Linux Agent on an unsupported Linux Distribution. For Amazon AMI and Ubuntu 14, we support 64-bit only.
All the requirements can be found in the following document: Agent Requirements.
As the Linux Distribution is not supported, the only way to monitor the Linux Machine is via SNMP and using SSH in conjunction with SAM templates.
The other option would be to utilize a 64-bit Amazon AMI and Ubuntu in your environment which support the SolarWinds Agents.
