This topic provides instructions for installing the control action executable.

Install the executable that implements the control action on each managed platform where it will be used.

The account under which the vCenter Hyperic agent runs must have:

Adequate permissions to run the file.

Adequate permissions to perform the tasks defined in the executable.

You can control the permissions required to run the file with chmod or an equivalent utility in your environment. If the tasks defined in the executable require permissions not granted to the account the Hyperic Agent runs under, one option is to add specific "NOPASSWD" entries in the sudoers file on the platform.

Create a "control_scripts" (or similar) directory in /opt/hyperic, or a directory high enough in the agent installation that it will not be overwritten during an agent upgrade.
