B.2 Prerequisites

B.2.1 Windows PowerShell

On the Windows workstation where you are conducting the remote installations, verify that Windows PowerShell 2.0 or above is installed.

B.2.2 Windows Agents

  • Verify that Windows PowerShell 2.0 or above is enabled on each Windows server where NFR Agents are being installed in an Active Directory environment.

    DeployAgents uses Windows PowerShell version 2.0 or above for parsing text, hiding credentials from plain text, and remote installation, but requires that remote signed scripts be allowed.

  • Verify that the ExecutionPolicy is set to something other than RESTRICTED.

    Use the Get-ExecutionPolicy PowerShell command to determine how the current policy is set. The Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned command can be used to change the current policy to one that is compatible with this process.

B.2.3 Linux Agents

  • Verify that SSH is enabled and the port is set to the default port 22.

    RPM installations require that all Linux servers are installed with default port numbers.

  • Open Enterprise Server must be installed on the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server before installing the agent RPMs.
