To prepare a device running Linux for remote installation of Network Agent:
If you cannot connect to the device, open the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file and make sure that the following settings have the respective values listed below:
Save the file (if necessary) and restart the SSH service using the sudo service ssh restart command.
Use the visudo command in Sudo to open the sudoers configuration file. In the file you have opened, specify the following: username ALL = (ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL. In this case, user name is the user account, which is to be used for the device connection using SSH.
You can view the dependencies for each package on your own, using utilities that are specific for the Linux distribution on which the package is to be installed. For more details about utilities, refer to your operating system documentation.
Installation may return an error if you are installing Network Agent with SSH on devices running Fedora versions earlier than version 20. In this case, for successful installation of Network Agent, comment out the Defaults requiretty option in the /etc/sudoers file. For a detailed description of the condition of the Defaults requiretty option that may cause problems during SSH connection, please refer to the Bugzilla bugtracker website.Page top
