Related Documentation Version of up.time affected Affected Platforms
All Linux

The up.time Agent for Linux contains the script agent-configure.sh. With this script, you can easily change the port or user permissions associated with the up.time Linux Agent.

If the user does not already exist on the server, use the useradd command to create the new user:

# useradd -m <desired agent user>

Then run the agent_configure.sh script with the -u or -p options to modify the user and port associated with the up.time Agent.

# /opt/uptime-agent/bin/agent-configure.sh -u <desired agent user> 
# /opt/uptime-agent/bin/agent-configure.sh -p <desired agent port>

Example:

# useradd -m uptimeagent
# /opt/uptime-agent/bin/agent-configure.sh -u uptimeagent
# /opt/uptime-agent/bin/agent-configure.sh -p 9990
