Remote Monitoring & Management Help

Register the Linux Monitoring Agent with the Dashboard

Once installed navigate to the Agent install directory /usr/local/rmmagent

cd /usr/local/rmmagent

Then apply the following command to register the Agent on the Dashboard.

./rmmagentd -i

Provide the login credentials (for example the Agent Key Username and password) username and password when prompted, then select the number associated with the current Client and Site the device is to be registered against.

It is normal to see one or more Access Denied error messages while the Agent attempts to locate the correct territory system instance.

Any changes to the Check or Agent settings are actioned from the Dashboard.

You can configure any required proxy settings as well as disable HTTPS communication pre-registration via the pak.xml file, as well as amend the proxy and HTTPS settings post-registration if required.

Register rmmagent as a service to ensure the Linux Monitoring Agent starts after a reboot

Please ensure the Linux Monitoring Agent is registered as a service to start automatically when the server restarts and depending on the distribution this can be achieved using sysVinit or systemd. Where not set to as a service the Linux Monitoring Agent must be manually started after a reboot.
