Install agent relays with the interactive installer

This topic explains how to install an agent relay using the interactive installer.

Installation prerequisites

Before installing an agent relay, ensure the following:

  • A supported version of Java is installed. For the latest system requirements, see the Support Matrix.

  • The server with which the agent relay will connect is already installed.

    Note: UNIX installers are 32-bit applications, and 64-bit systems may not support them by default. Before running the installer on a 64-bit Linux system, ensure that the following are installed:

    • Motif: Usually available by default
    • 32-bit compatibility libraries: C/C++ runtime

To install an agent relay using the interactive installer:

  1. Download the agent relay installation package from the Deployment Automation support page.

  2. Extract the compressed files.

  3. Ensure that the system environment variable JAVA_HOME is set to the correct path for the Java files, for example:

    JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\common\jre\8.0

  4. Ensure that the system environment variable PATH is set to the correct path for the Java executable, for example:

    PATH=%PATH%;C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\common\jre\8.0\bin

  5. Open a command prompt and from the expanded agent-relay-install directory, run the installation script.

    For Windows, run:

    install.cmd

    For UNIX/Linux, run:

    install.sh

  6. Specify the options for installing the agent relay. For details, see Agent relay installation options. Accept any default values suggested by the program, displayed in brackets, by pressing Enter. If two options are given, such as Y/n, the capitalized option is the default value.

After you complete the agent relay installation, continue to Agent installation.
