The Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Solaris agent is based on the Solaris package format and follows the same steps as adding or removing a standard Solaris package.
To install the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Solaris agent, do the following:
- Download the latest version of the Agent from the downloads page.
- Move the agent package to a temporary directory on the Solaris system on which the agent will run. (Note: If you are using FTP to transfer the file, ensure that you use binary mode because ASCII mode will result in a corrupt file).
Install with the pkgadd command:
# pkgadd -d <filename>.pkg uptimeagent
The Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Solaris Agent is provided in the SVR4 package format. In Solaris 11, Oracle released a new package management system, IPS, and does not provide the SVR4 package manager by default. To install the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Agent on Solaris 11, you may have to install in the SVR4 package manager first with this command:
pkg install SUNWpkgcmds
- Choose yes at each of the prompts to ensure proper functionality of the Agent.
- Once the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Solaris Agent is installed, you can add the system to Uptime Infrastructure Monitor for monitoring via the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor GUI.
To uninstall the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Solaris agent, do the following:
- Run the following command. Older releases of Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Solaris Agent may have a different package name (ex. SPYNuptm, uptmagnt)
# pkgrm uptimeagent
When upgrading the Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Solaris Agent, be sure to back up any custom scripts added to the
/opt/uptime-agent/scripts directory and the
/opt/uptime-agent/bin/.uptmpasswd file with the related script passwords.
