Automatically deploying agents - Packaged installations

Quick and easy installation when you have installed OpsCenter from a package, or for installing the agent on the OpsCenter machine from a binary tarball.

This method uses the OpsCenter Dashboard to install agents. It provides an SSH connection between the agent and OpsCenter and requires login credentials.



  1. Open a browser window and go to the OpsCenter URL at http://<opscenter_host>:8888 where <opscenter_host> is the IP or hostname of the OpsCenter machine. For example:
  2. In Add Cluster, enter the Hostnames or IP addresses of two or three nodes in the cluster and set the JMX set JMX and Thrift ports credentials, and then click Save Cluster.

    After OpsCenter connects to the cluster, a Fix link appears near the top of the Dashboard.

  3. Start installing the agents by clicking the Fix.

  4. In Install Node Agents, click Enter Credentials.

  5. In Node SSH Credentials, enter a username that has root privileges or sudo access to all of the nodes in your cluster, plus any other required credentials, and then click Done.
  6. In the Install Nodes Agent dialog, click Install on all nodes.
  7. If prompted, click Accept Fingerprint to add a node to the known hosts for OpsCenter.


It takes a few minutes for OpsCenter to complete the agent installations. After all agents are installed, a success message is displayed.
