Management → Managing Resources → Managing Agents and Agent Pools → Installing Agents Remotely
You can install an agent onto a UNIX machine using the web application. A remotely-installed agent cannot be installed as a service.
To install an agent:
|Target Hosts*||Host names or IP addresses of the machines where the agent will be installed.|
|SSH Port*||Secure Shell (SSH) port addresses of the machines where the agent will be installed.|
|SSH Username*||SSH user name used on the machines where the agent will be installed.|
|Use Public Key Authentication||Check this box if you want to authenticate using public key authentication instead of a password.|
|SSH Password*||SSH password associated with the user name used on the machines where the agent will be installed.|
|Agent Name*||Name of the agent.|
|Agent Dir*||Directory where agent should be installed.|
|Java Home Path*||Path to Java on the machine where the agent will be installed.|
|Temp Dir Path*||Path to the directory used to perform the installation on the target machine.|
|Server Host*||Host name or IP address of the Deployment Automation server or agent relay to which the agent will connect.|
|Server Port*||Serena Deployment Automation server port (7918) or agent relay (7916) to which the agent will connect.|
|Mutual Auth||Check this box if the agent should enforce certificate validation for mutual authentication.|
|Proxy Host||Host name or IP address of the agent relay if used.|
|Proxy Port||HTTP port of the agent relay (20080) if used.|
Remotely installed agents will start running automatically. If a remotely installed agent stops running, it must be restarted on the host machine.
