Installation Steps

  1. Grant yourself execute permissions to install-canopy-[ubuntu-x64 | linux-arm].sh. 
    Note: Update the example command below with the right filename for your platform.
    chmod 777 install-canopy*.sh
  2. Run the install script with sudo access. 
    Note: Update the example command below with the right filename for your platform.
    sudo ./install-canopy*.sh

    The script creates a user for the probe to run from, extracts the probe tarball to /opt/canopy_manage_probe (setting required permissions), then creates an init.d service called canopyManageProbe and starts it.


  3. Go to Canopy Manage, then the Probes section using the icon in the navigation bar.
  4. Click Register New Probe in the top right corner.
  5. Switch to the Linux (CLI) tab.

  6. In Ubuntu, in the terminal go to /opt/canopy_manage_probe/ 
  7. Copy the command from the Register new Probe screen and paste it into the terminal.
  8. Prepend it with "sudo -u canopyManage" to register the probe with Canopy Manage using the service account the install script created.
  9. Then restart the Canopy Manage Probe service:

    sudo systemctl restart canopyManageProbe
  10. Go back to Canopy Manage, you should see a new probe listed with a green circle next to it. Click on the name of the probe to be shown its plugins.
