Install HP OM Agent on Unix Machine

to install HP OM Agent on Unix Machine

ensure the the node host name is resolvable by name service or located in Hosts file

open OVO motif interface by opc

open node bank then click as in the screen below and fill the fields

unix node add

unix node add - advanced options

lets describe what may be the  usage of this page

first part is which application will be used for virtual terminal when operator try to launch Virtual Terminal against this node “like telnet” so you can use dtterm, xterm or hpterm.

Second part is for Physical Connection like the following:

  • connecting your Managment Server serial port to serial port multiplexor connecting come other servers like  ???????
  • the multiplexor is like remote DTC device with IP address and the machine are connected using a serial ports and share them in different TCP port so you may use telnet DTC_IP_Address portnumber
  • you may use command like CU to use your modem to establish a text connection to the telephone number connected to that machine.

there are 3 optional fields used as the following command username password Field1 Field2 Field3

the third part is Message Stream Interface which is used by other applications uses MSI APIs like message correlation engine

the fourth part is related to cluster and is used if your are add the node as a virtual node for cluster and you need to specify the physical nodes

for Communication Page

unix node add -  communications

 

here you have the communication type which in this case it is HTTPS as we selected in the agent type in the add node window

Use SSH (Secure Shell) during the installation is very powerful option to insure secure communication in case the client has SSH.

Limit buffer size; it is useful for limiting the buffer size in case of the agent is unable to communicate with the client

 

to install the agent you can do using command line like

# /opt/OV/bin/OpC/agtinstall/inst.sh <target node>

 

or you can use from action menu then agent Install Agent & SW configuration

deploy agent
