How to Configure AIX Server in Zabbix

 

 

To configure Zabbix Agent, we require below two tools:

1.    Putty ( For login the Linux Machine)

2.    WinSCP ( For coping file from Desktop to Linux Machine)

3.    ICPM, 10050, 10051 should be allowed from Source IP(Proxy IP) to Destination IP(Client IP)

 

 

Step 1:-  Open putty

 

Step 2:- Login with credentials

 

 

 

Step 3:-  give sudo -i command to login root user.

Ex:   # sudo -i

Step 4:-   Check the OS & architecture with below command.

Ex:- # cat /etc/issue

OR

 

# arch

 

Step 5:-  Check Ping & Telnet

 

 

Step 6 :-   Download zabbix-agent-aix from http://www.zabbix.com/downloads/2.4.4/zabbix_agents_2.4.4.aix6100.powerpc.tar.gz

 

 

Step 7:-   Copy downloaded agent in aix server through winscp

Download Agent



# cd /usr

# mkdir local

# cd local

# mkdir zabbix

# cd zabbix

# wget http://www.zabbix.com/downloads/2.4.4/zabbix_agents_2.4.4.aix6100.powerpc.tar.gz

# gunzip zabbix_agents_2.4.4.aix6100.powerpc.tar.gz

# tar xvf zabbix_agents_2.4.4.aix6100.powerpc.tar

# ls

bin

conf

nagios

sbin

zabbix_agents_2.4.4.aix6100.powerpc.tar

 

# vi /usr/local/zabbix/conf/zabbix_agentd.conf

Server=x.x.x.x                                           àGive Proxy Server IP Address

ServerActive=x.x.x.x                               àGive Proxy Server IP Address

Hostname=hostname_x.x.x.x               àGive Hostname which we need to at frontend as well.

 

# mkgroup zabbix

# mkuser zabbix

# /usr/local/zabbix/sbin/zabbix_agentd -c /usr/local/zabbix/conf/zabbix_agentd.conf

# ps -ef | grep zabb

 

 

NOW WE HAVE FINISHED ZABBIX AGENT INSTALLAION AT CLIENT SERVER.

Now we have to add in Zabbix front end.

HOW TO ADD IN ZABBIX FRONTEND:

Login zabbix url.

Click on “configuratioà the click on “hosts” à click on “create host”

 

 

Under “Host” & “Template” we have to add details like below screen shot and the click on “update” to take effect in frontend.

 

 

Now check in zabbix front-end

ENJOYYY!!!!!
