AppManager Unix Components 1.3
To install the AppManager onto a UNIX client users will have to do the following:
- Create an NFS share which contains all of the NetIQ agent install software and the silent installation file.
- Create a shell script using Remote shell (RSH) or its secure shell equivilent that does the following
- Login as root
- mounts the share
- runs the silent installation for example ./netiq_agent_install -s /tmp/silent.cfg
- thenÂ runs Â /etc/init.d/nqmdaemon start
The following parameters are required for silent installation.
HOME - installation home directory, e.g. /usr/netiq
AGREEMENT - "y" or "n", accept the agreement or not
INFRASTRUCTURE - "AppManager" or "MOM"
MSIP - MS IP address, if INFRASTRUCTURE is AppManager
MSPORT - MS port number, if INFRASTRUCTURE is AppManager

MLMPORT - MLM port number, if INFRASTRUCTURE is MOM
OWNER - the owner of the agent, e.g. "root" or "smith"

INSTALLMO - "y" or "n", proceed for component installation
Please note that all parameters are mandatory, except for MLMIP/MLMPORT when INFRASTRUCTURE is AppManager, or MSIP/MSPORT when INFRASTRUCTURE is MOM.
To start a silent installation, invoke the installer script, netiq_agent_install, with -s option followed by the configuration filename.
