How to deploy agent for solaris

Jump to solution
I've download the Server for Windows and Agent for Solaris.
The Server for windows installed successfully, but how do I install the agent for solaris?

The downloaded file is hyperic-hq-agent-3.1.4-EE-504-sparc-solaris.gz
and when i unzip it, it's just hyperic-hq-agent-3.1.4-EE-504-sparc-solaris.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Nemesis

The file's extension must be tgz, not gz, maybe you browser has changed it.
You can use this command:

tar -zxvf hyperic-hq-agent-3.1.4-504-sparc-solaris.tgz

And then use "./hq-agent.sh setup" to start and configure agent.

Adding to Laullon's reply:

1. were you untarring the file on the Solaris machine? If you tried to open it on the Windows box, you would probably get the error you described

2. laullon's tar command will work if you're using gtar. If you're using the tar included with Solaris, it might have some quirks that require you to read the man pages for tar.

Thanks Laullon and JohnMark for the help.
I rename the extension from gz to tgz, untar and finally see a folder with files in it.

The funny thing is that, I had use both IE and Firefox to download, both browser give a gz extension file.

I use winrar to unzip the file windows and port it over to Solaris and it works fine.
