    How to install zabbix agent on multiple Ubuntu systems connected in lan from a single admin terminal. I need a shell script to do this. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    • Matei Cezar says:

      Use an automation program , such as Ansible, Puppet for that. You can use bash, perl or python for that matter also. Nobody will write a script for you. Learn and do it yourshelf. Nobody knows what your requirements are (what distros, IPs, hosts etc)

    Thanks for the detailed how-to.

    Now that Zabbix 3 is released, do you have plans to write and upgrade guide on this?

    Eu só recomendaria não instalar o pacote no CentOS diretamente do RPM do jeito que você fez, o correto seria criar um repositório (eu acho que o zabbix tem um).
    Ou usar o epel ( que tem uma versão razoávelmente recente do agente, assim você pode simplesmente instalar com: yum install zabbix22-agent
    E toda vez que executar yum update, se houver um pacote mais recente no epel, ele já atualiza.

    Translated to English

    I would recommend not only install the package on CentOS RPM directly the way you did, correct would be to create a repository ( I think the zabbix have one) .
    Or use the EPEL ( ) which has a reasonably recent version of the agent , so you can just install with yum install zabbix22 -agent
    And each time you run yum update if there is a newer package in EPEL , it has updated .
