With the Standard Installation, an easy-to-use CLI installer installs SysInfo™ quickly on UNIX® based Operating Systems. This is the fastest and easiest means of installing SysInfo™. We strongly recommend nearly all customers install using this method as this will save you significant time.
Choose the product distribution file you wish to download. The available product distributions for download are as follows:
|Product Distribution Name||Product Distribution File||Contents|
|Full runtime environment (Recommended for end users)||mcsysinfo-6.0-GA-os-arch.sh||Standard end-user runtime with CLI, GUI, agent. You likely just want this distribution file.|
|Runtime environment without any user interface||mcsysinfo-6.0-GA-os-arch-noui.sh||This distribution does not include the CLI or GUI, but does include everything you need to output mcsysinforeport(5) data. This product file is intended for our OEM customers.|
|Software Developers Kit||mcsysinfo-6.0-GA-os-arch-sdk.sh||This distribution contains the C Software Developers Kit for this release. It should be installed on top of the Standard end-user runtime product as it only contains the SDK and not the required base environment.|
You likely will only need the Full runtime environment distribution.
