While publishing part 3 I run into a problem which I would like to share.
Two command which you might need…
To get the LINUX agents version type:
rpm -q scx
To uninstall a LINUX agent type (logon as root):
rpm -e scx
So while I tried to deploy a LINUX agent I received the following error:
The WinRM client received an HTTP status code of 501 from the remote WS-Management service
I tried to uninstall and install the LINUX agent but didn’t help.
I found an article which describes a problem with a Windows patch KB2585542. I followed this article here http://operatingquadrant.com/2012/01/12/opsmgr-unixlinux-heartbeat-failures-after-applying-kb2585542/ and after that I could sucessfully deploy the LINUX agent.
What I did was on my management server uninstalling this patch KB2585542…
and then added this registry key…
No reboot was required. Then everything went o.k.
