How To



Following is a list of each component  of the Unix, Linux and Macintosh (ULM) Agent and Solutions and required information to manually install each component. 

 

This applies to 7.x versions prior to, but not including, 7.5 SP1. Paths and files were changed significantly in 7.5 SP1. 

 

Column definitions: 

  • Component & Platform - The agent or solution name (component) and the platforms applicable to that component. 
  • File Name(s) - A list of files used to install the component on each platform.
  • Component Install Command - The command used to install the component.
  • NS Source File Location - Where the install files can be found on the NS/SMP server. 

 

Notes: 

1.     Elevated privileges are required for all installation commands. For Unix and Linux systems, login as the root user or use 'sudo <command>'. For Mac systems, login to any administrator account and use 'sudo <command>'.
 

2.     The 'agent-upgrade' script has several useful options. Use the '-h' option for further details. 
 

3.     All source file locations are in the NSCap directory, unless otherwise noted. The default location for the NSCap directory on the NS/SMP server is “C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\NSCap”.



4.     The base path to use when downloading with wget, curl, etc. is "<NS Servername>/altiris/ns/NSCap/bin/UNIX...". 



5.     To use a manual method, copy all files in the package directory from the NS/SMP server to each client. Files can be copied using whatever method is preferred, i.e., wget, curl, ftp, sneakernet, etc. Once the files are in place, simply run the associated install command, as noted in the article. 



6.     To install the NS/SMP agent, it is  recommend that  the Agent (Bootstrap) package be used. The bootstrap requires that a single file be copied to the client rather than multiple. The bootstrap will then identify the platform and download the appropriate "Agent (Native)" files and run the appropriate install command.



7.     To install other components (plugins, etc.), use any preferred method to copy the native files to the the client computer(s) and run the associated command line.



8.     Installation information for all components for all platforms can be found using the following query: 

select pa.name as [Software Package], pa.[Package Location], pr.name as [Command Type], pr.commandline as [Command Line]
from swdpackage pa
join dbo.SWDProgram pr on pa.[packageid]=pr.[packageid]
where pa._Latest=1 and pr._Latest=1
order by 1, 3
