Install the Agent on Linux or Unix with the Shell Script

Install the agent using a shell script that contains a self-extracting executable.

To view information about the installer or to view a list of command-line options, run the installer package using --help command. For example (examples here are for RPM-based Linux platform):

./ --help

Run the install as root or with a user that has sudo rights.

  1. Download or copy the shell script to the computer desktop.


If you FTP the file, select binary (or BIN), for the transfer as the installer includes some binary code that becomes corrupted in AUTO or ASCII mode.

  1. As root, change the mode of the installer to executable:

    chmod a+x
  2. As root, run the installer:

  3. Follow the instructions in the installer.
