Installation

Note: A basic understanding of Linux is assumed throughout the installation, upgrade, and removal processes.

Caution: When performing sudo installs, use sudo –i to ensure the proper use of environmental variables.

Caution: During the installation process, SecurityCenter will produce the log file /tmp/sc.install.log. This file is important for debugging purposes in case of a failed install and should not be removed. Once the installation process is complete, the file will be moved to /opt/sc/admin/logs/install.log.

As the root user, install the RPM by running the following command:

# rpm -ivh SecurityCenter-5.x.x-es6.x86_64.rpm

Output similar to the following is generated:

# rpm -ivh SecurityCenter-5.x.x-es6.x86_64.rpm
