To install the Authentication Services agent with the installation script
Run install.sh by entering the following command:
# ./install.sh vasclnt
Note: See Install the Authentication Services agent package for a list of the Authentication Services Agent installation commands.
After installing Authentication Services some services such as cron, sshd and gdm may need to be restarted in order to reload NSS configuration. If you are unsure of which services to restart, reboot the system.
If you run install.sh with no option, it installs (or upgrades) Authentication Services and Authentication Services Group Policy, installs the license, and joins the domain.
The following is a list of the available options to the Authentication Services install script:
|-d||Turn on debug.|
|-h||Help; displays usage information including a brief summary of options.|

|-p||Specify alternate ISO path to search for install packages.|
|-t||Test host and iso and report on what is installed and available.|
|-i||Interactive mode; provides a menu showing choices based on existing Authentication Services software installation and includes a help mode.|
|-q||Unattending mode; executes script in unattended (automatic) mode; requires other options.|

|upgrade||Upgrades all products on the system.|

You must have the Authentication Services license installed for full Authentication Services functionality on Unix.
There are four ways to manage licenses
One Identity recommends this as a best practice. (For more information, see Add licenses using the Control Center.)
For more information, see Licensing Policy in the Authentication Services Administration Guide.
This allows you to enter a path. The script then places the license in the proper location. For more information, see Installation script options.
For more information, see Installing licenses from the command line.
To obtain a license, complete the form located at: Request License Key or contact your account representative for a new license file.
Note: If you are running Management Console for Unix with a licensed version of Authentication Services, any time you make a change to the Authentication Services licensing, go into the mangement console System Setting's Licenses and click the Check for licenses button to refresh the product license information in Management Console for Unix.
To verify that you have a valid Authentication Services license
vastool license –q
You will see output similar to the following if you have a valid license installed:
Number of Unix Enabled users in use: 150 ---QAS--- Number of Licensed Unix Enabled Users: 1000 Valid licenses: 1
