Sun N1 Service Provisioning System User's Guide for Linux Plug-In 2.0

ProcedureHow to Deploy a Linux RPM File

  1. Capture the component as described above.

  2. Go to the Components section of the N1 Service Provisioning System application.

  3. Choose the component to deploy.

  4. Click Run in the Actions column next to the Install procedure.

    A plan details page appears for running the installation procedure.

  5. Choose a target host.

    The target host needs to be running a version of the Linux operating system that matches the component to deploy.

  6. For the installPath component variable, specify the location on the target host where you want to install the RPM file. The value for the installPath variable is treated as a relative path to the default Remote Agent directory, unless you specify an absolute path, such as /opt.

  7. For the pkgName component variable, specify the package name that exists in the RPM file.

    On a Linux server, the following command prints the package name.

    # rpm -qp path-of-rpm-file --qf '%{NAME}'

    Note –

    If you do not provide a package name or type the wrong name, the file cannot deploy and an error message displays. Because the stdout message for the failed step displays the actual package name, you can also use the error message to determine what the pkgName component variable should be.

  8. Click Run Plan.
