Installing CFEngine Enterprise Agent
This is the full version of CFEngine Enterprise host, but the number of hosts is limited to 25.
NOTE: Please make sure to have installed the CFEngine Policyserver before moving on to install the hosts.
CFEngine Hosts (clients) * 32/64-bit machines with a recent version of Linux * 20 mb of memory * 20mb of disk space * Port 5308 needs to be open
The installation script below has been tested on Red Hat, CentOS, SUSE, Debian and Ubuntu.
- Download and Install CFEngine Host Run the following command to download and automatically install CFEngine on a 32-bit or 64-bit Linux machine (the script will detect correct flavor and architecture).
wget https://s3.amazonaws.com/cfengine.packages/quick-install-cfengine-enterprise.sh && sudo bash ./quick-install-cfengine-enterprise.sh agent
- Bootstrap the Host Once installed, the host needs to bootstrap to your CFEngine policy server.
sudo /var/cfengine/bin/cf-agent --bootstrap <Name or IP address of policy server>
If you encounter any issue, please make sure the host is on the same domain/subnet as CFEngine policy server will only allow connection from these trusted sources as default configuration.
- Congratulation you are done! The CFEngine host is installed and ready. That was easy, wasn’t it?
