SCOM Linux rpm

A client recently asked me how to obtain the agent files for installing UNIX/ Linux OpsMgr agents outside of OpsMgr, and from the command line for instance. After the cursory search for a good article on the web to pass along, I came up with nothing, and decided to correct that. This article will simply walk through how to obtain the agent files. I will not go over agent installation steps as there are numerous articles on the web that sufficiently cover that.

1. Let窶冱 start by obtaining the management packs for UNIX/ Linux. Management packs can be found here:ツ


2. Select the relevant files for your UNIX/ Linux distros. In my case, 2 flavors of CentOS and SUSE Enterprise 12.


3. After downloading the files and documentation, review the documentation to get a good measure of the capabilities

4. Accept the terms and clickツNextツto proceed


5. Install to the default or other directory of your choosing


6. After the installation, management pack and bundles will now be visible in your installation directory.


Proceed to install the management packs from disk.

7. Log on to the computer with an account that is a member of the Operations Manager Administrators role.

8. In the Operations console, clickツAdministration.

9. Right-clickツManagement Packs, and then clickツImport Management Packs.

10. TheツImport Management Packsツwizard opens. ClickツAdd, and then clickツAdd from disk.

11. TheツSelect Management Packs to importツdialog box appears. If necessary, change to the directory that holds your management pack file. Click one or more management packs to import from that directory, and then clickツOpen.


NOTE: After the import completes, theツDownloadedkitsツfolder (which will contain the agent files) will NOT immediately be visible in the directory 窶C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Operations Manager\Server\AgentManagement\UnixAgents窶ツ, and could lead to some confusion if you are expecting to find the files thereツNerd smile. The files are not immediately visible becuase a workflow has to run in order for the agents to be available. That workflow is enabled by the RPM and DEB discoveries for the respective management packs.


NOTE:ツIf you窶囘 rather not wait, you can speed up the workflow tasks by restarting the HealthService on your Management server

Get-Service HealthService | Restart-Service -verbose


After the service restart, theツDownloadedKitsツfolder is now visible in the path:ツC:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Operations Manager\Server\AgentManagement\UnixAgents


And the selected agent files will be visible within the folder.


You can now use the agents for install operations from the command line as detailed in this Microsoft Articleツ I hope this is instructive
