The first step in installing a Linux sensor on an endpoint is to unpack the agent.
- Create a root-owned temporary install directory on the endpoint; do not use a shared folder such as /tmp or /var/tmp:
$ sudo mkdir cb-psc-install
- Extract the contents of the installer package into the temporary directory you created. Replace
cb-psc-sensor-<DISTRO>-<BUILD-NUMBER>.tgzwith the filename of the installer package.
$ sudo tar -C cb-psc-install -xzf cb-psc-sensor-<DISTRO>-<BUILD-NUMBER>.tgzNote: In regards to the -xzf option, the z is optional.
