Installing and registering a CCS Agent on UNIX in silent mode

When you install a CCS Agent, the installer prompts for necessary information such as the type of installation or the name of a directory. If you use the same settings to install the CCS Agent on a large number of computers, you can avoid the prompts by performing silent installations. The silent installation feature lets you install CCS Agents and register the agents to CCS Managers.

Ensure that the hostname of the computer is present in the /etc/hosts file before installing the agent.

See the following sections before installing the CCS Agent:

Note:

You cannot install a stand-alone CCS Agent on a computer that contains a CCS Manager, because the CCS Manager installation also contains the installation of CCS Agent.

Perform the following procedure before installing the CCS Agent:

Install the CCS Manager. You require a CCS Manager for the CCS Agent to register to. However, you cannot install a CCS Agent on a computer that contains a CCS Manager.

Do one of the following:

Run the following command to install and register a CCS Agent on UNIX:

./esmsetup -ibaE -p 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14 -d <Installation Directory> -t <Path of esm.tgz> -M <Manager IP> -U <username> -W <password> -N <Agent_IP/Name> -K <ESM tpk path> -C <CCS tpk path>

Where:

  • <Installation Directory> is the location of the directory where you want to install the CCS Agent files.

  • <Path of esm.tgz> is the location of the esm.tgz file on the product media. The path must include "esm.tgz" , eg /var/tmp/esm110/esm.tgz .

  • <Manager IP> is the IP Address of the CCS Manager to which the Agent must be registered.

  • Specify this parameter only if you are registering the agent for message based data collection. You must first enable the CCS Application Server and CCS Manager for message based data collection.

    See Enabling message based data collection.

    <username> The user name set in the CCS Manager for message based data collection. For example, ESM

  • Specify this parameter only if you are registering the agent for message based data collection.

    <password> The password which you have set while enabling the CCS Manager for message based data collection.

  • <Agent_IP/Name> is the IP Address or Name of the computer you are installing the Agent on.

  • <Path of esm.tpk> is the location of the esm.tpk file on the product media. The esm.tpk is the installer for Security Updates for message based data collection.

  • <Path of ccs.tpk> is the location of the ccs.tpk file on the product media. The ccs.tpk is the installer for Security Updates for raw-data based collection.

If the silent installation or registration fails for any reason, the respective errors are displayed on the screen.
