OMS Linux Agent Installation Errors on Ubuntu 16.04.2

Chiyo OdikaAZURE, Linux, Microsoft Operations Management Suite, OMSLeave a Comment

I recently was working on some OMS Linux agent testing and sought to test with the 16.04.2 flavor of Ubuntu for the first time. Upon downloading the relevant bundle for my computer as described in my previous article, an attempt to upgrade (–upgrade) the package in the system failed with the dreaded “Errors were encountered while processing” errors, and I saw this across the board on all of the Ubuntu 16.04.2 computers. Looks like a missing dependency is the culprit. So here’s what I did to address this and onboard this Ubuntu distro to my OMS workspace: I uninstalled the package and removed all related data, using the –purge bundle operation: sudo sh ./omsagent-1.3.4-127.universal.x64.sh --purge and then proceeded to address the dependency.

OpsMgr 2012 R2 UNIX and Linux Agent Installation. Getting the .rpm and .deb Agent Files

Chiyo OdikaOpsMgr, SCOMLeave a Comment

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’s start by obtaining the management packs for UNIX/ Linux. Management packs can be found here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29696 2. Select the relevant files for your UNIX/ Linux distros. In my case, 2 flavors of CentOS and … Read More
