Where do we have the installation file(s)? << what dose it means when i install the robot in centOS, is it centOS does not support the nimsoft?
The Nimldr will attempt to pull in the installation files from a local Nimsoft Distribution Server, if it cannot see that server/access the download files, then you'll need to have a copy of it on your target server.
The Linux install files work for any distribution of Linux as long as they're at the right glib level - I know for a fact CentOS works fine, I've installed to it a number of times in the past. The installation is very well documented, pull up the Installation Guide here, the section you'lre looking for is: Installing Nimsoft Infrastructure on a Unix computer on your internal network
Yep centos works fine. You can either attempt to pull the info from archive or copy the linux (glibc <2.3) or the linux23 which is for any linux glibc > 2.3.
hi, i am running on nimsoft 5.0, i want to monitor linux server from a different network, i am using centOS 5.when i attempt to install, i get the error message as below, kindly assit.

this wat i get...
then i put >>

if i keep press enter, the same thing came out....
We try to figure out what ip a system has by doing a lookup of the hostname, then using that hostname to resolve the ip that goes with it. Either your name resolution is not set up properly or the /etc/hosts file has the hostname listed as 127.0.0.1. For some strange reason Linux distros decided that it's a good idea to have the host listed there, instead of using 'localhost' as every single other unix I've ever seen does...
The second error indicates that either the hub at 184.108.40.206 does not have a distsrv probe running or there is a routing problem. You indicate that the robot ip address is 10.10.123.7 - is there a route to 220.127.116.11 for the 10.10.123 subnet? The easiest way to find out might be to use telnet to check that you have connectivity:
root@yourbox# telnet 18.104.22.168 48002
That checks connectivity to the hub itself, to check the distsrv you can change 48002 to whatever port distsrv is running on (which you should be able to see in the Infrastructure Manager).
It could be a firewall issue as well...
Beyond that you can copy the install_LINUX_23.zip (install_LINUX_23_64 if it's a 64bit system) file to a local directory or put it on an NFS drive and answer 'yes' if it asks you if you have the file locally.
thanks a lot~
I'm trying to install on a centos 6 and I tell the installer that I have the installation files locally. When the installer asks: Where do we have the installation file(s)? I type in the path to the file, and it seems like the installer don't understand the path or don't find the file.
I've been trying many different formats, with no luck...
What is the installer looking for? Any zip-file? Or do I have to rename the file to something?
I've downloaded the file from here:
You may need to remove the -4_71 part of the file name so that it looks like this:
I am not completely sure about that, but I think I have run into this issue. Give it a try and see if it helps.
Thanx. With the file called install_LINUX_23_64.zip AND a fresh nimldr-3_54.tar.Z (not the old one I had on my server) it worked fine...
