Install Zabbix agent on Solaris 11

Hello all,

I'm trying to set up a few Solaris servers in Zabbix. I did some googling and RTFMing and found there where two ways.

1. Download and install pre-compiled Zabbix agent from Zabbix

or

2.To download and install from opencsw

I downloading the pre-compiled Zabbix agent from Zabbix and when unzipping all I got was bin,sbin and conf folders.

Bin has - zabbix_get zabbix_sender
Sbin has - zabbix_agentd
Conf has - zabbix_agentd zabbix_agentd.conf

Nothing in there to install zabbix, like a .sh file.

I then moved onto option 2 which installed and I have change the conf to point to my Zabbix server but there is not service running or zabbix-agent service to start.

Has any one have any experience in setting this up or able to point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Why not just put the bin files in bin folders and config files in /etc/zabbix and make sure your paths work together and go for it?

Install Zabbix agent on Solaris 11

Hi Neo,

sorry I don't follow. Don't I need to install it first? the was no 'install.sh' file with the pre-compiled Zabbix agent. and the opencsw give these install instructions
Code:
pkgadd -d get.opencsw.org/now
/opt/csw/bin/pkgutil -U
/opt/csw/bin/pkgutil -y -i zabbix_agent 
/usr/sbin/pkgchk -L CSWzabbix-agent # list files

The output of /usr/sbin/pkgchk -L CSWzabbix-agent # list files being

Code:

Just install it manually. Why not? What have you got to lose?

Ah right. I don't know how to do it. When you say install manually would this be just unzipping the pre-compiled Zabbix agent and moving all the bin file to /bin, then created the folder /etc/zabbix and move the conf files there? and move all the sbin file into /sbin ?

Hi,

I've never used Zabbix, but it's likely that the way to start it would be to run it as a legacy service - which will mean that you'll have to create a manifest. Alternatively you could write your own start "start|stop|restart" script and put it in /etc/init.d and link back to /etc/rc3.d to start it.

If you are running on an x86 version I'd think that there would be more help than the SPARC version.

I would start looking here for information.

Regards

OK thanks gull04. I did start with the zabbix forums, be no one has any information about install the agent on solaris. There not even any documentation from Zabbix them selfs. Will keep looking.
