Rollout of existing products to Linux.
For the deployment of software to clients, the opsi-client-agent must be installed on them. This can be rolled out on existing-machines.
Subsequently, the opsi-configed management interface is used to deploy software to clients.
The following products are provided by opsi for Linux as standard:
One of the opsi standard products is the product opsi-configed, which installs the opsi Management Interface. This Application is a Java application, therefore a Java Runtime Engine is bundled with the product.
Using opsi-configed, in the mode Configuration of clients, choose the appropriate client in the tab Clients.
If you have not already done so, update the data of opsi-configed by using File / Reload all data or click the reload icon.
Switch to the tab Product configuration, look for the line with the product
opsi-configed. Click in the column Requested Action, and select the action setup.
The check mark in the icon menu bar should change its color to red. If you click on it, the new settings will be transmitted to the opsi-server, afterwards its color will be green again.
Reboot the client. The opsi-client-agent should start and install the product opsi-configed. After the installation you can find opsi-configed in the start menu.
In opsi-configed, Client configuration mode, under the Clients tab, select the client under consideration.
If not already performed, update the opsi-configed’s dataset using Reload File/Data or clicking the corresponding icon.
Go to the Product configuration tab, click in the Requested column for the hwaudit product, this will open a list/dropdown menu and there select the setup action. Repeat this for the swaudit product.
The check mark in the icon menu bar should change its color to red. If you click it, the new settings will be transmitted to the opsi-server, afterwards its color will be green again.
Then restart the client. It should now start the opsi-client-agent and install the hwaudit and swaudit products. With hwaudit and swaudit, hardware and software information, respectively, is collected and transmitted to the opsi-server. The collected information is displayed under the Hardware Information and Software Inventory tabs, respectively.
