up.time Agents for Solaris are installed at the command line.

To install an agent on Solaris, do the following:

  1. Log into the system as user root.
  2. Using a file transfer method such as FTP, transfer the archive containing the Agent to the system on which you want to install it.
    You should copy the archive to a temporary directory on the system.
  3. Extract the archive using the following command:
    tar -xvf <agentName>.tar
    <agentName> will vary depending on which platform and version you are installing (e.g., uptimeagent-6.0.0-solaris-sparc.tar or UPTMagnt-i386-5.0.0.tar).
  4. Run the following command found, ensuring you include the dot metacharacter:
    pkgadd -d .
  5. Follow the prompts from the pkgadd utility to select the Agent package and install it.
