Re: How can I upgrade the agent in AIX and Linux nodes

From your initial question, it was not clear as you mentioned you have recently upgraded to 11.10.

follow the same steps as you did for the windows packages, to obtain the linux and aix packages.

install these on the server - if you have ssh enabled you would be able to upgrade the agents on the UNIX nodes.

you can also directly download the agent 11.10/11.11 packages from the HP software downloads for specific platforms. Install these directly on the node.

not sure where you need help. is this because you don't have root access to the managed nodes?

if yes, either you have to do this via the OM console only, using SSH or you have to work with the AIX and linux folks in your company and get them to install the agents.

BTW - all this is documented in the install guide.

It is 11.10.025. Please stop mentioning version 11.25 :)

 

The patches for 11.13 are installable directly on the node. copy over the agent iso file, mount it and install using oainstall -i -a.

 

hope this helps.

go to support.openview.hp.com. login with HP passport, go to downloads, search for software patches for operations agent version 11.11.
