HP-UX - PA-RISC Installation Instructions

Note: Beginning with IEM 9.0 the directory /etc/opt/BESClient/ is not automatically created by the installer. If it does not exist, you will need to manually create this directory.
  1. Download and copy the corresponding BES Client package file to the HP-UX computer (the computer must be PA-RISC system). The file name will be in the format "(BESAgent-ww.xx.yy.zz.pa_risc_hpux11.0.depot" with variations, depending on the particular version of the agent downloaded.
    Note: Internet Explorer may incorrectly label the downloaded file as a .tar file. Mozilla and other browsers will download the file with the extension as .depot

    /usr/sbin/swinstall -s HOSTNAME:/path/BESAgent_filename BESAgent
    where HOSTNAME is the name of the system which the Agent is being installed, and /path/ is the path to the Agent installation source and BESAgent_filename is the name of the file you downloaded.

  3. Copy your actionsite masthead to the HP-UX BES Client computer (the masthead contains configuration, license, and security information). The action site masthead (actionsite.afxm) can be found in your BES Installation folders (by default they are placed under C:\BES Installers). If the masthead is not named "actionsite.afxm, rename it to "actionsite.afxm" and place it on the computer at the following location: /etc/opt/BESClient/actionsite.afxm.
    Note: In BES 4.0 and later, the masthead file for each BES Server is downloadable at http://servername:port/masthead/masthead.afxm
  4. Start the BES Client by running the command /sbin/init.d/besclient start

Mac OS X - Installation Instructions

For client versions up to 8.2.1175.0 (8.2 Patch 3) or all installations on OSX 10.4 and 10.5:

  1. Download the corresponding BES Client package file to the Mac computer.
  2. Open the disk image by double clicking the DMG file (eg: BESAgent-8.2.1310.0-BigFix_MacOSX.dmg) to mount it.
  3. Run the BESAgent Installer Builder. The Installer Builder will request the masthead file which is available by using the BESAdmin tool on the BES Server computer ("Export Masthead" functionality). The file must be named "actionsite.afxm" for the installation to work properly.
  4. After running through the Installer Builder it will ask you where to save the Mac Installer dmg file you will use to install the MAC BESAgent.
  5. Once the disk image has been created, mount it and simply double click the PKG (eg: BESAgent-8.2.1310.0_MacOSX.pkg) to launch the installer.

For client versions 8.2.1310.0 (8.2 Patch 4) and higher on OSX 10.6 and later:

The distribution includes one DMG (mountable Disk Image file) that contains utilities and a separate PKG download for the install or upgrade package. The files are identified as 10.6 versions in the file names.
  1. Download the corresponding BES Client package file to the Mac computer.
  2. Copy the PKG file to any directory and copy the masthead file for your deployment into the same directory. Make sure the masthead file is named actionsite.afxm.
  3. You may optionally include a pre-defined settings file (clientsettings.cfg) in the install directory to create custom settings for the Mac client at installation time.
  4. Launch the PKG installer by double-clicking the PKG file (eg: BESAgent-8.2.1310.0-BigFix_MacOSX10.6.pkg) and run through the installer. The agent will start up after the installation completes as long as the masthead file is included in the install directory.

Mac OS X - Fixlet Content

  1. To get the Fixlet content for the Mac BES Agent, you will need to subscribe your BES Server to the appropriate Fixlet site. To subscribe to a new Fixlet site, go to a computer with the BES Console installed.
  2. Download the Mac Evaluation masthead. (Note: This masthead is for Evaluation licenses only.)
  3. When prompted to open or save the file, click "Open" and this will automatically open the BES Console.
  4. Log into the BES Console with your username/password.
  5. Once logged in, the BES Console will ask if you wish to subscribe to the Patches for Mac OS X Fixlet site, click OK.
  6. Type in your private key password and click OK.
  7. After the BES Console subscribes to the site, it should automatically start gathering new Fixlet messages from the site.

If the masthead is not named "actionsite.afxm", rename it to "actionsite.afxm" and place it on the computer at the following location: /etc/opt/BESClient/actionsite.afxm.
    Note: In BigFix 4.0 and later, the masthead file for each BigFix Server is downloadable at http://servername:port/masthead/masthead.afxm (example: http://bes.bigfix.com:52311/masthead/masthead.afxm).
  4. Start the BigFix Client by running the command: /etc/init.d/besclient start.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux - Fixlet Content

To get the Fixlet content for the Red Hat BigFix Agent, you will need to subscribe your BigFix Server to the appropriate Fixlet site. To subscribe to a new Fixlet site, go to a computer with the BigFix Console installed.

Solaris - Installation Instructions

Note: Beginning with IEM 9.0 the directory /etc/opt/BESClient/ is not automatically created by the installer. If it does not exist, you will need to manually create this directory.
  1. Download the corresponding BigFix Client package file to the Solaris computer.
  2. Install the PKG by running the command pkgadd -d <path to BigFix Client package file>.
  3. Copy your actionsite masthead to the Solaris BigFix Client computer (the masthead contains configuration, license, and security information). The action site masthead (actionsite.afxm) can be found in your BigFix Installation folders (by default they are placed under C:\BigFix Installers). If the masthead is not named "actionsite.afxm, rename it to "actionsite.afxm" and place it on the computer at the following location: /etc/opt/BESClient/actionsite.afxm.
    Note: You may need to create the directory /etc/opt/BESClient/ if it does not already exist.
    Note: In BigFix 4.0 and later, the masthead file for each BigFix Server is downloadable at http://servername:port/masthead/masthead.afxm (example: http://bes.bigfix.com:52311/masthead/masthead.afxm).
  4. Start the BigFix Client by running the command /etc/init.d/besclient start.

Note: Earlier revisions of Solaris (7 and 8) did not include functions required for proper running of the BES Client in the libC (SUNWlibC package) libraries. Ensure that the libC libraries have been patched to a sufficient level so that the BES Client will operate correctly.

For Solaris 8, the latest version of patch 108434 must be installed:
http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-21-108434-20-1

Solaris - Fixlet Content

  1. To get the Fixlet content for the Solaris BES Agent, you will need to subscribe your BES Server to the appropriate Fixlet site. To subscribe to a new Fixlet site, go to a computer with the BES Console installed.
  2. Download the Solaris Evaluation masthead. (Note: This masthead is for Evaluation licenses only.)
  3. When prompted to open or save the file, click "Open" and this will automatically open the BES Console.
  4. Log into the BES Console with your username/password.
  5. Once logged in, the BES Console will ask if you wish to subscribe to the Patches for Solaris Fixlet site, click OK.
  6. Type in your private key password and click OK.
  7. After the BES Console subscribes to the site, it should automatically start gathering new Fixlet messages from the site.

SUSE Linux - Installation Instructions

Note: Beginning with IEM 9.0 the directory /etc/opt/BESClient/ is not automatically created by the installer. If it does not exist, you will need to manually create this directory.
  1. Download the corresponding BES Client RPM file to the SUSE computer.
  2. Install the RPM by running the command rpm -ivh <path to BES Client RPM>.
  3. Copy your actionsite masthead to the Linux BES Client computer (the masthead contains configuration, license, and security information). The action site masthead (actionsite.afxm) can be found in your BES Installation folders (by default they are placed under C:\BES Installers). If the masthead is not named "actionsite.afxm, rename it to "actionsite.afxm" and place it on the computer at the following location: /etc/opt/BESClient/actionsite.afxm.

    Note: In BigFix 4.0 and later, the masthead file for each BigFix Server is downloadable at http://servername:port/masthead/masthead.afxm (example: http://bes.bigfix.com:52311/masthead/masthead.afxm).

  4. Start the BigFix Client by running the command /etc/init.d/besclient start.
