This describes how to use the Python-based deployment script to install an agent. Using Python is a legacy deployment option that can have Python package dependencies incompatible with your environment. For script-based deployment without package or operating system dependencies, consider: Install an Agent using a Python Deployment Script.
Check for supported operating systems.
- Python is required to run the script.
- The host machine should have access to the OpsRamp API server to download the installer.
Install a root user agent
From All Clients choose a client.
Go to Setup > Download > Agent.
In the Linux Agent Script tile, choose Python Script.
Download and save the deployAgent.py script.
Install the agent, enabling the features you want:
python deployAgent.py -f "agent:RemoteCommand,agent:PatchManagement,agent:Automation,agent:RemoteConsole"
Within a few seconds, the Infrastructure page displays the installed server.
