SLES Agent


HI
I install Framework Manager on Win2003 , and want to manage All
Linux Plateform in my company.
When I want to install agent to SLES11...I confused...
Whether I need install Novell-pum-XXXXXXXXX.rpm in the SLES11 Folder or
install netiq-npum-agent in Linux folder ??

Because I install Novell-pum...it will show "could not find
libaputil.so.0 ". if novell-pum rpm is not agent package, what is this
?

Re: SLES Agent

I'd setup novell-pum-manager personally since that would give you a
redundant system for managing for when windows crashes, has updates, or
otherwise fails predictably. For most of your systems, though, you just
need the novell-pum (sans -manager) package since that just has the agent.

Regarding the dependency, are you sure it is libaputil that you're after?
I would expect something like 'libaprutil' but that does not match what
you typed. Anyway, if the latter then I am guessing it is, if not on the
main SLES media, on the SDK media. To prevent downloading the entire SDK
DVD perhaps try looking on the Patch Finder site.

http://download.novell.com/patch/finder/

One there choose 'SUSE Linux Enterprise Server' or the equivalent SDK
option below it from the top drop-down, then type 'libapr' in the search
field at the bottom, and then click 'Search'. It may take a few seconds
as SLE has thousands of entries here (one for every package that is ever
released). Once you have this dependency met then the install should
complete properly prompting you for the required things like IP address
and credentials.

Re: SLES Agent

I believe the biggest difference is that the SLE-specific packages know
what kind of packages are available from SLE (like libaprutil) so that the
packages from NetIQ for PUM do not need to include as much. "as much"
probably means, based on the dependency you report as missing, a whole ton
of Perl scripts that are available from CPAN or other public sites, and
are bundled in the SLE media (again, the SDK probably), and so would be
redundant to ship again. The generic install doesn't know which distro of
Linux you are using and therefore cannot rely on it as much as it can on SUSE.

Re: SLES Agent


I would highly recommend you *NOT* use the SLES specific installers
(installers in the SLES folders) for Privileged User Manager.

First reason: SLES installers are slated to go away soon. See the NPUM
2.3.3 documentation: http://tinyurl.com/mlyvkcp

> NOTE:In the next release (meaning the next release after 2.3.3) of
> Privileged User Manager, SLES Specific Framework Manager and Framework
> Agents rpms will *not* be supported on SLES platforms.


However, no worries as the generic Linux installers work flawlessly on
SLES hosts. They have been tested and are supported (and seeing above
will be the only way going forward).

Second reason: You lose the ability to use the Package Manager to deploy
and patch SLES hosts. IMHO, the Package Manager's ability to patch and
deploy new modules to a host is priceless. Something I wouldn't want to
live without.

Hope this helps.

Re: SLES Agent


Correct. The Linux agent can be used on ALL supported Linux platforms,
including SLES and RHEL. Good luck.
