You can install an Endpoint Operations Management agent on a Linux platform from a tar.gz archive.

By default, during installation, the setup process prompts you to provide configuration values. You can automate this process by specifying the values in the agent properties file. If the installer detects values in the properties file, it applies those values. Subsequent deployments also use the values specified in the agent properties file.

Verify that you have sufficient privileges to deploy an Endpoint Operations Management agent. You must have vRealize Operations Manager user credentials that include a role that allows you to install Endpoint Operations Management agents. See Roles and Privileges in vRealize Operations Manager.

If you plan to run ICMP checks, you must install the Endpoint Operations Management agent with root privileges.

Verify that the installation directory for the Endpoint Operations Management agent does not contain a vRealize Hyperic agent installation.


Download and extract the Endpoint Operations Management agent installation tar.gz file that is appropriate for your Linux operating system.
