Technical Reference for the Configuration Manager Client for Linux and UNIX

Updated: May 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1, System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager

noteNote
The information in this topic applies only to System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1 and System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager.

This topic contains technical information for the Configuration Manager client for Linux and UNIX.

The following table identifies the client component services of the Configuration Manager client for Linux and UNIX.

noteNote
Beginning with cumulative update 1, the client for Linux and UNIX replaces the CIM Server in use on the client with the open source omiserver, version 1.0.6 from the Open Group.

When you use the initial release of the client for Linux and UNIX and reference the documentation in this section, replace each reference of omiserver.bin with nwserver.bin.

 

File name More information

ccmexec.bin

This service is equivalent to the ccmexc service on a Windows-based client. It is responsible for all communications with Configuration Manager site system roles, and also communicates with the omiserver.bin service to collect hardware inventory from the local computer.

For a list of supported command line arguments, run ccmexec -h

omiserver.bin

This service is the CIM server. The CIM server provides a framework for pluggable software modules called providers. Providers interact with Linux and UNIX computer resources and collect the hardware inventory data. For example, the process provider for a Linux computer collects data associated with the Linux operating system processes.

The following tables list commands that you can use to start, stop, or restart the client services (ccmexec.bin and omiserver.bin) on each version of Linux or UNIX. When you start or stop the ccmexec service, the omiserver service also starts or stops.
