Privilege Manager for Unix 7.1 - Release Notes

Product licensing

Although licenses are allocated on a per-agent basis, you install licenses on Privilege Manager for Unix policy servers.

No special commands are required to register or license the clients with policy servers. Hosts using the Privilege Manager for Unix agents are automatically granted a license once a request is received on the Privilege Manager for Unix policy server by means of the pmrun command.

To install a license file

  1. Copy the .dlv license file to the policy server.
  2. To install the license, run:
    # /opt/quest/sbin/pmlicense –l <license_file>

    This command displays your currently installed license and the details of the new license to be installed.

  3. When it asks, "Would you like to install the new license (Y/N) [Y]?", press Enter, or type: Y
  4. If there are other policy servers configured in your policy server group, it forwards the license configuration to the other servers.

See the One Identity Privilege Manager for Unix Administration Guide for more information about the syntax and usage of the pmlicense command.

Installation instructions

One Identity recommends that you follow these steps:

NOTE: Due to a change in the communication protocol, using 7.1 clients and servers with 7.0 clients and servers is not supported. One Identity recommends you upgrade all of your 7.0 installations to 7.1. Installations of release 6.x are not affected and can still be used with 7.1.

  1. Install Authentication Services on one machine, so you can set up your Active Directory forest.
  2. Install One Identity Management Console for Unix, so you can perform all the other installation steps from the management console.
  3. Add and profile hosts using the management console.
  4. Configure the console to use Active Directory.
  5. Deploy client software to remote hosts.
  6. Deploy the Privilege Manager for Unix software.

See Install PM Agent on a remote host in the One Identity Management Console for Unix Administration Guide for more information about the installing an agent on a remote host.
