Release Notes for bv-Config for UNIX version 8.1



Release Notes
bv-Config™ UNIX®


bv-Config UNIX is a Windows-based application used to deploy the bv-Control for UNIX agent on the UNIX target machines. This application provides a GUI to configure installation parameters such as UNIX target, the agent install package path, and BindView Information Server to register with and so on. All the target information is stored in a Character Separated Value (CSV) file. This CSV file contains the target machine, authentication information along with installation options and a list of Information Servers you want to register the individual target machine with.

Using bv-Config UNIX you can automate:

· Removal of the existing agent software from the UNIX target machines.
· Importing the task list from a CSV delimited file.
· Installation of the agent software on the UNIX target machines.
· Registration/Unregistration of UNIX target with/from BindView Information Server.
