The simplest way to install Zenoss Core 4.2 on a newly-deployed RHEL/CentOS 64-bit 5/6 system is to use our auto-deploy script, which downloads all required files for you. To use the script, first set up a new server running one of our supported operating systems. Then, as root, run the following commands:
# yum -y remove mysql-libs
# yum -y remove MySQL-*
# wget --no-check-certificate https://github.com/zenoss/core-autodeploy/tarball/4.2.4 -O auto.tar.gz # tar xvf auto.tar.gz # cd zenoss-core-autodeploy-*
Now, you have the option of editing zenpack_actions.txt, which defines all ZenPacks that will be installed by default (all Core ZenPacks). If you would like to avoid installing certain ZenPacks, then remove the corresponding lines from this file and save it.
Now you are ready to install Zenoss Core 4.2.4:
As part of the install process, your Zenoss installation will be secured, and you will be asked if you would like to set a secure root password for MySQL. It is strongly recommended that you do so.
The auto-deploy script will automatically download and install all required dependencies, as well as Zenoss Core 4.2. After the script completes successfully, use your favorite Web browser and head to port 8080 of your new server (for example, http://127.0.0.1:8080), and then set the Zenoss administrator password and create your initial user account using the Web interface.
Next, you’ll want to Add a Device to Zenoss.
