Verifying candidate host resources

Use this procedure to run the zenoss-installer script on a candidate host.
  1. Log in to the host as root, or as a user with superuser privileges.
  2. Add execute permissions to the script.
    The following example assumes the script is located in /tmp; adjust the path, if necessary.
    chmod +x /tmp/zenoss-installer
  3. Run the script with the arguments that match the role the host will play in your Control Center deployment.
    Role Deployment Invocation
    Master Single-host zenoss-installer -a verify -d single -r master
    Master Multi-host zenoss-installer -a verify -d multi -r master
    Delegate Multi-host zenoss-installer -a verify -r delegate
    Collector Multi-host zenoss-installer -a verify -r collector
If the script displays error messages, refer to the remaining sections in this chapter for more information about how to correct the errors.
