Install SRM Profiler server on Linux

Updated: June 16, 2017

Pre-Installation requirements and notes:

  • 32-bit agent/server should only be installed on 32-bit Linux systems. 64-bit agent/server should only be installed on 64-bit Linux systems.
  • Linux (x86-64) operating system supported versions: RedHat, CentOS, SUSE
  • SRM Profiler does not support installations on an OS with existing installations of a SRM Profiler database.
  • Before installing SRM Profiler, rename or delete my.cnf. This file is generally found in the path, /etc/my.cnf.
  • SRM Profiler versions 5.6 and newer use MariaDB. For previous versions, MySQL is used. For versions prior to 5.6, substitute MySQL for MariaDB
  • Before installing SRM Profiler, verify there are no current instances of mariadb running on the server. If there are, you must uninstall it before installing SRM Profiler. You must also rename or delete my.cnf if present before installing SRM Profiler. This file is generally found in the path, /etc/my.cnf.

Install on a Linux server

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

    # ./Storage_Manager_Agent-linux-x86_64.bin

  3. Installation might take several minutes. You are prompted for the following information:
    • Destination Path: The path where you want to install the agent. A directory will be created underneath this path if it does not already exist.
    • Agent Port: Correlates to the web services port that is used by the server to communicate with the agent. The default port '4319' is recommended.
    • Server Trap Port: Also related to the agent setup, the 'Server Trap Port' must be set to the port listening on the server for incoming trap events. The default port '162' is recommended.
    • SRM Profiler Database password: The password needed to access the SRM Profiler database. It is important to write it down and keep it in a safe place. This password is used by the SRM Profiler services to access the SRM Profiler database. This is NOT the password used to log in to the GUI.
  1. To start the server, execute the following: #/usr/bin/storage_manager_server start

Stop the server

    #/usr/bin/storage_manager_server stop

Uninstall SRM Profiler on Linux

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

    This command uninstalls the SRM Profiler server.
