Installation Packages

Privilege Manager is comprised of the following packages:

  • Privilege Manager for Unix product

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

  • Privilege Manager for Sudo product

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

Package locations

Privilege Manager 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:

There are three different packages:

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

NOTE: 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 Privilege Manager installer packages for each platform supported by Privilege Manager.
