Manually Installing Cross Platform Agents

Updated: May 22, 2009

Applies To: Operations Manager 2007 R2, Operations Manager 2007 SP1

Automatic System Discovery might not detect some UNIX and Linux systems due to firewalls or security issues. For example, if the UNIX or Linux root password is not available to the Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 administrator, an error might result. Use the following procedures to manually install agents to UNIX and Linux systems. After agents are successfully deployed, rerun the Discovery Wizard from the Operations console to discover these systems.

To install the agent on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server

  1. Transfer the agent (scx-<version>-<os>-<arch>.rpm) to the Linux server.

    scx-<version>-<os>-<arch>.rpm

  2. To install the package, type

    rpm -i scx-<version>-<os>-<arch>.rpm

  3. To verify that the package is installed, type

    rpm -q scx

  4. To verify that the Microsoft SCX CIM Server is running, type

    service scx-cmid status

To install the agent on Solaris

  1. Transfer the agent (scx-<version>-<os>-<arch>.pkg.Z) to the Solaris server.

    scx-<version>-<os>-<arch>.pkg.Z

  2. Run the following command:

    uncompress scx-<version>-<os>-<arch>.pkg.Z

  3. To install the package, type

    pkgadd -d scx-<version>-<os>-<arch>.pkg MSFTscx

  4. To verify that the package is installed, type

    pkginfo –l MSFTscx

  5. To verify that the Microsoft SCX CIM Server is running, type

    svcs scx-cimd

To install the agent on HP-UX

  1. Transfer the agent (scx-<version>-<os>-<arch>.gz) to the HP server:

    cp scx-<version>-<os>-<arch>.gz

  2. To unzip the package, type

    gzip –d scx-<version>-<os>-<arch>.gz

  3. To install the package, type

    swinstall –s /path/scx-<version>-<os>-<arch> scx

  4. To verify that the package is installed, type

    swlist scx

  5. To verify that the Microsoft SCX CIM Server is running, type

    ps –ef|grep scx

    Look for the following process in the list:

    scxcimserver

To install the agent on AIX

  1. Transfer the agent (scx-<version>-<os>-<arch>.gz) to the AIX server:

    cp scx-<version>-<os>-<arch>.gz

  2. To unzip the package, type

    gzip –d scx-<version>-<os>-<arch>.gz

  3. To install the package, type

    /usr/sbin/installp -a -d scx-<version>-<os>-<arch> scx

  4. To verify that the package is installed, type

    swlist scx

  5. To verify that the Microsoft SCX CIM Server is running, type

    ps –ef|grep scx

    Look for the following process in the list:

    scxcimserver
