This describes how to use the shell-based deployment script to install an agent. This is intended to supercede the legacy Python script deployment option, which can have Python package dependencies incompatible with your environment.

Check for supported operating systems.

Prerequisite

The host machine should have access to the OpsRamp API server to download the installer.

Install a root user agent

  1. From All Clients choose a client.

  2. Go to Setup > Download > Agent.

  3. In the Linux Agent Script tile, choose Shell Script.

  4. Download and save the deployAgent.sh script.

  5. Install the agent, enabling the features you want:

    • All features:

            sh deployAgent.sh
            
    • Specific features:

            sh deployAgent.sh -f "agent:RemoteCommand,agent:PatchManagement,agent:Automation,agent:RemoteConsole"
            

    Within a few seconds, the Infrastructure page displays the installed server.
