How to Configure SUSE Linux 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:- Copy “zabbix_agent_suse11_sp3_64bit.tar” through winSCP in ‘/’ path.

Download Agent

# cd /

# tar –xzvf zabbix_agent_suse11_sp3_64bit.tar

# ls -l /etc/init.d/zabbix_agentd

# chkconfig zabbix_agentd

# groupadd zabbix

# useradd -g zabbix zabbix

# id zabbix

# vi /opt/zabbix/etc/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.

:wq!

NOTE:- under “Server” & “ServerActive” we have to give zabbix proxy IP and remember whatever you give the host name , same hostname have to give in the front end in zabbix.

 

# /etc/init.d/zabbix_agentd restart

# ps -ef | grep zabbix

# chkconfig --list | grep zabbix

# chkconfig --level 3,5 zabbix_agentd on

# chkconfig --list | grep zabbix

 

Step 7:-  Now Restart the zabbix agent.

Ex:-

# /etc/init.d/zabbix-agent restart

 

 

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 “configuration” à the click on “hostsà 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!!!!!
