Install an agent on Linux

Table of contents

Check the Agent requirements before you begin.

The agent install does NOT require a reboot.

In case of RHEL 5/OEL 5 install, certain libXP packages are not installed along with the default RPM Packages. These are needed for SRM Profiler to work correctly on Linux. Hence they must be installed manually. Packages details: libXp-1.0.0-8.1.e15 and libXp-devel-1.0.0-8.1.e15 (These packages are available on the RH5 distribution DVD).

32bit agents should only be installed on 32bit Linux systems and 64bit agent should only be installed on 64bit Linux systems.

Installation may take several minutes. You are prompted for the following:

To stop the agent: #/usr/bin/storage_manager_agent stop

  1. Log in as root.
  2. Execute the install binary:

    # ./Storage_Manager_Agent-linux-x86_32.bin

    • Destination Path: The path where you want to install the agent. A directory is created underneath this path if it does not already exist.
    • Server IP Address: The IP address of the device running the SRM Profiler server.
    • Agent port: The agent server port to use.
    • Web Services Port: The 'Web Services Port' correlates to the web services port that is used by the server to communicate with the agent. The default port '4319' is recommended.
    • Trap Destination Port: The 'Trap Destination Port' must be set to the port listening on the server for incoming trap events. The default port '162' is recommended.
  3. To start the agent, execute the following:

    #/usr/bin/storage_manager_agent start

Uninstall the Linux agent

  1. Log in as root.
  2. Go to install path: # cd /opt/ Storage_Manager_Agent
  3. Execute the Uninstall folder: # ./uninstall -mode silent

    This command uninstalls the SRM Profiler agent.
