Opsview Repositories Settings

To install Opsview, use your favourite editor to edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list (or create a new file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opsview.list) and add the following line to it:

  # Opsview packages
  deb http://downloads.opsview.com/opsview-community/latest/apt <OS> main

Opsview Enterprise Subscription users should instead use:

  # Opsview packages - this requires authentication
  deb http://<username>:<password>@downloads.opsview.com/opsview-enterprise/latest/apt <OS> main

Where:

  • OS is your distribution name, such as etch, lenny or hardy

For example, community users can use:

deb http://downloads.opsview.com/opsview-community/latest/apt lenny main

Opsview Enterprise Subscription users can specify the version of Opsview if they do not want to track the latest enterprise version (use the major version instead of latest such as 3.4 or 3.6, etc)

For example, enterprise users can use the following for tracking major releases:

deb http://user:pass@downloads.opsview.com/opsview-enterprise/latest/apt etch main

or the following for only tracking releases of 3.2:

deb http://user:pass@downloads.opsview.com/opsview-enterprise/3.6/apt etch main

NOTE: Opsview Enterprise Subscription systems based on Debian Lenny (or later) should also install apt-transport-https and use https rather than http
