1. Prerequisite Tasks


Run all commands as root, from the machine where you want to install Zenoss.

Before you install:

  1. Run the Yellowdog Updater, Modified (YUM), which you will use to install Zenoss. To run YUM, enter this command:

    # yum -y install mysql-server net-snmp net-snmp-utils gmp libgomp libgcj liberation-fonts
  2. Download the Zenoss installation files.

  3. If you have just installed MySQL, then use the following commands to adjust the permissions:

    # /etc/init.d/mysqld restart 
    # /usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password ''
    # /usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h localhost password ''


    Initially, the MySQL password must be blank so that Zenoss can correctly create the database. After you have installed and started Zenoss, you can change this password.
