- Installing the HP-UX takes only a few minutes.
- Download the appropriate file from the help.Argent.com under the Optional Monitoring Agents section.
- Transfer the file you downloaded to the HP-UX system you want to monitor, using FTP, SSH, or another file transfer method. For this example, we’ve placed the downloaded file in the /tmp directory.
- On the HP-UX machine, log on as “root” and create the /etc/argent directory.
- Switch to the /tmp directory, where we placed the downloaded file, and move the file to /etc/argent.
mv ARGENT_GUARDIAN_HPUX_8_0A_0707.TAR /etc/argent
- Change directories to /etc/argent.
- Extract the contents of the tar file.
tar xfv ARGENT_GUARDIAN_HPUX_8_0A_0707.TAR
- The /etc/argent directory now contains three more files:
- tagagent (the binary for the Secure Unix Agent)
- tagagent.conf (the configuration file for the Secure Unix Agent)
- tagshell (the Unix Shell Script Agent)
- Create log files for both the Secure Unix Agent and the Unix Shell Script Agent.
touch tagagent.log tagshell.log
- CMake both tagagent.log and tagshell.log world-writable. (This is necessary if the Rules you’re running are executed by someone other than “root”.)
chmod 666 tagagent.log tagshell.log
- Change the ownership on the /etc/argent directory and its files:
chown -R root:sys /etc/argent
- The Secure Unix Agent and the Unix Shell Script Agent run under inetd. Place the following lines in /etc/inetd.conf:
tagagent stream tcp nowait root /etc/argent/tagagent tagagent tagshell stream tcp nowait root /etc/argent/tagshell tagshell
- Next, place the following lines in /etc/services:
tagagent 3060/tcp # The Argent Secure Unix Agent tagshell 3061/tcp # The Argent Unix Shell Script Agent
- Restart inetd to enable the monitoring agents.
- You can verify that the agents are listening by using the following “netstat” command:
netstat -a | egrep ‘tagagent|tagshell’
- If desired, access to the monitoring agents can be restricted by using TCP wrappers.
