The procedure for installing the IGEL Universal Management Suite under Linux is as follows:
The IGEL Universal Management Suite has been tested on the following Linux distributions:
Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit
Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3 64 bit
Oracle Linux 7.3 64 bit
From UMS Version 5.07.100, the necessary 32 bit libraries for these Linux distributions will automatically be installed by the UMS installer.
Download the current version of the IGEL Universal Management Suite from the IGEL UMS Download.
Open a terminal emulator such as xterm and switch to the directory in which the installation file setup-igel-ums-linux-[Version].bin is located.
Check whether the file is executable. If not, it can be made executable using the following command:
chmod u+x setup*.bin
You will need root/sudo rights to carry out the installation.
Execute the installation file as root or with sudo:
This unzips the files into the /tmp directory, starts the Java Virtual Machine contained and removes the temporary files again after the installation procedure.
Start the installation procedure by pressing Enter.
You can cancel the installation at any time by pressing the Esc key twice.
Read and confirm the license agreement.
Decide whether the installer will automatically install the necessary 32 bit libraries:
Now: The installer will automatically install the packages with the distribution’s own package management.
Manual: The installer will skip installing the 32 bit libraries because you have already done this yourself.
Cancel installer: The installer will cancel the installation.
Under Destination directory, select the directory in which the UMS is to be installed. (default: /opt/IGEL/RemoteManager)
If you update an existing UMS installation: Under Database backup, select a file for the backup of the embedded database as well as licenses and certificates. If you have already created a backup, you can also select No (continue) in order to skip this step.
Under Installation Type, select the scope of installation:
Complete: UMS server and UMS console
Client only: UMS console only
HA net: High Availability configuration (requires a license)
Freely selectable directories for file transfers are no longer supported. After completing the installation, move the existing files to the ums_filetransfer/ directory and use the Files and Firmware Update points in the UMS console to make them available online again. You may also need to amend download addresses in the thin client configurations and profiles.
Under Data directory, select the directory in which Universal Firmware Updates and files are to be saved. (default: /opt/IGEL/Remotemanager)
Select the run levels in which the UMS server is to run.
Under Database, select the desired database system.
Internal: The internal database (embedded database)
Other: An external database server
The internal database is suitable for most purposes. It is included in the standard installation.
If you would like to manage a large network of thin clients or converted devices and a dedicated database system is already in use in your company, it is advisable to use this system. The same applies with the High Availability solution.
Enter a user name and password for database access.
Specify whether you would like to create shortcuts for the UMS console and UMS administrator in the menu.
Check the summary of the installation settings and start the procedure by selecting Start installation.
If you have selected the standard installation, the UMS server along with the internal database will be installed and started.
If you install UMS 5.03.100 or older on Ubuntu 16.04, execute the following command as root in order to start the UMS server:
Once the installation procedure is complete, open the UMS console via the menu or with the command /opt/IGEL/RemoteManager/RemoteManager.sh
Connect the UMS console to the server by entering the logon data for the database that you specified during installation.
