Adding additional Unix\Linux Maint account RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

       We have created Unix and Linux Maintenance account  and configured run as profile with default all selected objects for Linux and Solaris Scom agents installation  , but we need to add additional maintenance account for AIX SCOM agent installation due to  user account no of character limitation  in AIX . When I am trying to add the AIX Maintenance account in Unix\Linux Maintenance account RUN AS Profile , default targeting all objects is disabled. Kindly let me know the  target object to choose , for deploying SCOM Agent to AIX Servers.

    Note: AIX Management packs are imported already.

  • Hi, 

    you can traget the AIX RunAs Profile at the specific AIX Groups or classes. That would be the optimum approach and will avoid distributing the credentials to the other Linux systems.

    This is depcited here:

    [SCOM] UNIX/Linux Run As Account settings for multiple DMZ, different resource pools

    You can either target AIX classes, built-in groups, or even you can create your own group (as isuggested in the post above) and target it. 

    Here also some useful info on the topic:

    Managing Run As accounts and profiles

    Distribution and targeting for Run As accounts and profiles

    Run As Accounts and Profiles

    I hope I could help. Regards,

  • Hi,

    Yes, as Stoyan suggested, we may be more specific, to use the AIX computers.
