You can install CCS Agents on UNIX computers. For the installation process, you run the installation program and register the CCS Agents with the CCS Managers.
Symantec distributes software on a disc. To install this software, at least one computer with a UNIX operating system must have access to a disc drive.
Symantec provides the software files in a compress-format tar file for the computers that have UNIX operating systems. The software disc contains installation files for each operating system that is supported for installing CCS Agents on UNIX.
The util folder in the disc contains the following installation file:
The esmsetup is the installation program. The esm.tgz is the compressed tar file that contains the program files. The gzip is the GNU uncompress utility. The app folder should contain esm.tpi, which is the installer for application modules. The su folder contains the esm.tpk, which is the installer for Security Updates for message based data collection and ccs.tpk, which is the installer for Security Updates for raw-data based collection.
Ensure that the hostname of the computer is present in the /etc/hosts file before installing the agent.
You cannot install a stand-alone CCS Agent on a computer that contains a CCS Manager, because the CCS Manager installation also contains the installation of CCS Agent.
Perform the following procedure before installing the CCS Agent:
Install the CCS Manager. You require a CCS Manager for the CCS Agent to register to. However, you cannot install a CCS Agent on a computer that contains a CCS Manager.
If you want to install the application modules while installing the CCS Agent, you must copy the CCS_Agent/<platform> folder on the local computer. Then create a folder "AppModules" at the level of the SU folder, and copy the platform specific application module from the CCS_Agent/MBC/AppModules folder to the local computer in the following folder structure:
For example, to install application modules for Oracle on linux, create a folder structure as follows:
The installer installs this application module while installing the agent.
The installation process is as follows:
Mount the disc drive.
Perform the installation.
To mount the disc drive
Use su or log in to root on a computer with a UNIX operating system that has access to a disc drive.
Type the appropriate command to mount the disc drive to device /dvdrom.
To start the installer
Use su or log in to root on the computer with a UNIX operating system that you use to install the CCS Agent software.
Mount the disc to /dvdrom .
Type./esmsetup to run the installer from the product disc.
You can also run the installer from the /tmp directory if you use gzip to extract the file from the product disc. If you have copied the CCS Agent setup to the local computer for installing the application module during the agent installation, run the installer from the CCS Agent setup that is copied on the local computer.
Type 2 to perform a CCS Agent installation.
Type A if you agree to the terms of the License Agreement.
Do one of the following:
Type the name of the directory where you want to install the CCS Agent files.
Do not choose the root folder. The installer creates the directory if the directory does not already exist. The installer creates a /esm symbolic link that points to the directory.
Type df to list the partitions that have sufficient disk space to install the CCS Agent.
Do one of the following:
Type the name of the product disc drive that contains the distribution media.
Type the full path of the tar or tgz file on a disk.
Type the special device file name of the tape drive that contains the installation tape.
Type the name of the CCS Manager to which the Agent must be registered.
Type y if you want to register the Agent for message based data collection.
Type the port number of the CCS Manager.
Perform this step if you are registering the agent for message based data collection. You must first enable the CCS Application Server and CCS Manager for message based data collection.
