Opsview Software Repositories

Opsview software can be downloaded from our package repositories. Access to these repositories requires a Repository Access Key (a 40 character string) that is unique to your organisation, and this key is provided to users who have a trial and those who have purchased a subscription for Opsview Pro or Opsview Enterprise. This page provides information on where to find your key and how to configure your system to access the repositories.

Repository Access Key

If you have taken out an Opsview trial or purchased a subscription, your organization's Repository Access Key will have been e-mailed to you.

If you have purchased Opsview Pro or Opsview Enterprise you have access to support, you can log in to the Customer Portal and your key will be displayed there.

Sample Key:

5bbd5667b498d81af9c2311d871858b26fe0024b

Please see the OS-specific section below to see how to configure the repository for your platform.

Please note that this key is not the same as your Software Key. The Software Key will have been emailed to you separately or to your organization's designated subscription contact for an Opsview Enterprise subscription.

Debian and Ubuntu

Create a new file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opsview.list and add the following line to it:

# Opsview packages
deb https://downloads.opsview.com/k/<REPOSITORY_KEY>/opsview-commercial/latest/apt <OS> main

Where:

  • <OS> is your distribution name, such as squeeze, lucid, precise
  • <REPOSITORY_KEY> is your own key

For example if your repository key is 5bbd5667b498d81af9c2311d871858b26fe0024b and you are running Debian Squeeze, you would use the following entry:

deb https://downloads.opsview.com/k/5bbd5667b498d81af9c2311d871858b26fe0024b/opsview-commercial/latest/apt squeeze main

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and CentOS

Create a new file called /etc/yum.repos.d/opsview.repo with contents based on the example for your platform.

name = Opsview
baseurl = https://downloads.opsview.com/k/<REPOSITORY_KEY>/opsview-commercial/latest/yum/rhel/$releasever/$basearch

[opsview]
name = Opsview
baseurl = https://downloads.opsview.com/k/<REPOSITORY_KEY>/opsview-commercial/latest/yum/centos/<OS>/$basearch

Where:

  • <OS> is either 5 or 6 depending on your version of CentOS

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server

Use zypper to add in the Opsview repository
