NOTE: Before installing a new agent , verify that all previous installations have been uninstalled and directories are empty.

Warning: Ensure that the UNIX agent is installed for the root user and the queries
are executed in the root context. The agent must not be installed for any non-root
user.

Installing the UNIX agent manually on Red Hat Linux target computers

We recommend that you install the UNIX agent using install.sh, but you can also
install it manually on the target computer. You must save the agent installation
package on the local drive for the manual installation.
You can install the UNIX agent on the Red Hat target computer manually by
extracting the bv-Control.8.60.(build number) file from the DVD-ROM on the
target computer.

Note: For target computers of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0 operating system, you
must place the install.sh, bvControl-8.60-(build number)-i386.rpm, and the
bvUpgrade-8.60-(build number).i386.rpm files in the same directory. The build
number consists of the last three digits of the file name.

To install the UNIX package on the Red Hat Linux computer from a local drive

1 Create a directory on the Red Hat Linux target computer.
Example: /tmp/bvinstall

2 Copy the Red Hat package from the OS-specific folder that is located in the
\CCS_DataCollection\Support_Installs\bv_Control_for_UNIX directory of the
DVD drive.
The build number consists of the last three digits of the file name.

3 Change to the newly created directory.

4 Type the following command to install the package and press Enter:
rpm -i bvControl-8.60-<build number>-i386.rpm

After you have installed the package, the following prompt appear:

the installation you must run.
/usr/local/BindView/bvcontrol/setup.sh

To install the UNIX package on the Red Hat Linux target computer from the DVD-ROM

1 Type the following command to mount the DVD-ROM and press Enter:
mount /dev/cdrom

2 Type the following command to install the package and press Enter:
rpm -i /mnt/cdrom/bv-Control_for_Unix/Linux/RedHat/bvControl-
8.60-<build number>-i386.rpm

3 Type the following command to unmount the DVD-ROM and press Enter:
umount /mnt/cdrom

After you have installed the UNIX package on your UNIX target computer,
you must run the setup.sh script. The setup.sh is used to register the UNIX
target computer with the Information Server.
