Quick start and evaluation
To simplify the installation and configuration of the Privilege Manager components, One Identity recommends that you install One IdentityManagement Console for Unix. Management Console for Unix provides a web-based mangement console, a powerful and easy-to-use tool that dramatically simplifies deployment, enables management of local Unix users and groups, provides granular reports on key data and attributes, and streamlines the overall management of your Unix, Linux, and macOS hosts.
You can download the Management Console for Unix install package from the same Download Software page where you downloaded the Privilege Manager for Unix software packages.
To test Privilege Manager for Unix, you must set up at least one primary policy server and one remote host system configured with the PM Agent.
Installing the Management Console
Management Console for Unix makes it easy for you to centrally manage a policy file on a primary policy server.
You can install the mangement console on Windows, Unix, or macOS computers. Each hosting platform prompts for similar information.
The following install files are located on the Privilege Manager distribution media under console | server:
- ManagementConsoleForUnix_unix_2_5_2.sh - for Unix and Linux
- ManagementConsoleForUnix_windows_2_5_2.exe - for Windows
- ManagementConsoleForUnix_windows-x64_2_5_2.exe - for Windows
The One IdentityManagement Console for Unix Administration Guide contains detailed instructions for installing the mangement console on all of these platforms. Use the following procedure to install the mangement console on a Unix computer from the command line using the installation script:
To install the mangement console on a Unix platform
- Log in and open a root shell.
- Mount the installation media and navigate to console | server.
- Run the following command from the Unix command line as root:
# sh ManagementConsoleForUnix_unix_2_5_2.sh

Using no option starts the installer in a graphical user interface if you have an X server, making the installation experience similar to running it from the Windows autorun.
In console mode, it asks you for the following information:
- Enter 1 to accept the user agreement.
- Enter the SSL Port number or press Enter to accept the default of 9443.
- Enter the Non-SSL Port number or press Enter to accept the default of 9080.

Uninstalling the Management Console

The application database contains information about the hosts, settings, users, groups, passwords, and so forth.
By default, the database directory is at: /var/opt/quest/mcu.
