If you have multple agents to install at one time, you can create a single standardized agent.properties file that can be used by all the agents.

Installing multiple vCenter Hyperic agents entails a number of steps, as described below. Perform the steps in the order listed.

Verify that the following prerequisites are satisfied.

1

Set up an install server.

An install server is a server that can access the the target platforms from which to perform remote installation.

The server must be configured with a user account that has permissions to SSH into each target platform without requiring a password.

2

Verify that each target platform on which a vCenter Hyperic agent will be installed has the following items.

A user account that is identical to that created on the install server.

An identically named installation directory, for example /home/vfabrichyperic.

A trusted keystore, if required.

1

You can create a single properties file that contains property values that are used by multiple agents.
