Installation Packages

Safeguard is comprised of the following packages:

  • Privilege Manager for Unix product

    Contains the Privilege Manager for Unix Policy Server and PM Agent components and uses the native packaging system for each platform (RPM, PKG, etc).

  • Safeguard for Sudo product

    Contains the Safeguard Policy Server and Sudo Plugin components and uses the native packaging system for each platform (RPM, PKG, etc).

  • Preflight Binary

    This is a stand-alone native binary for each platform (not zipped, tarred or packaged). This binary exists stand-alone on the ISO to make it available for use prior to installing software. It does not change any Safeguard configuration on the host.

For more information, see Download Safeguard for Sudo software packages..

Package locations

Safeguard is provided in native platform install packages, which include binary files, online man pages, installation files, and configuration file examples.

The install packages are located in the zip archive in two directories called:

  • /server
  • /agent
  • /sudo_plugin

where <platform> is the name of the platform on which you are running Safeguard.

There are three different packages:

  • qpm-agent package, which contains only the client (pmrun) and agent (pmlocald) components for Safeguard for Sudo.
  • qpm-server package, which contains the server (pmmasterd), the client (pmrun) and agent (pmlocald), and the Sudo Plugin ( components for Safeguard.
  • qpm-plugin package, which contains the offline policy cache server (pmmasterd), the Sudo Plugin ( components for Safeguard.

The Solaris server and agent packages have filenames that start with QSFTpmsrv and QSFTpmagt, respectively.

Once installed, the packaged files are placed in an installation directory under /opt/quest which contains subdirectories and files.

The platform directories contain the Safeguard installer packages for each platform supported by Safeguard.
