Raspbian Installation Instructions

How to install the client on Raspbian.

Perform the following steps:

  1. Download the corresponding BigFix client Raspbian package file to the Raspberry PI client.
  2. Install the package by running the command:
    dpkg -i client_package_path
  3. Copy your actionsite masthead to the client (the masthead contains configuration, license, and security information). The action site masthead (actionsite.afxm) can be found in your BES Installation folders (by default they are placed under C:\Program Files (x86)\BigFix Enterprise\BES Installers\Client on Windows and /var/opt/BESInstallers/Client/ on Linux). If the masthead is not named actionsite.afxm, rename it to actionsite.afxm and place it on the client at the following location: /etc/opt/BESClient/actionsite.afxm.
    Note: The directory /etc/opt/BESClient/ is not automatically created by the installer. If it does not exist, create it manually.
    The masthead file for each BigFix server can be downloaded from http://servername:port/masthead/masthead.afxm (example: http://bes.BigFix.com:52311/masthead/masthead.afxm).
  4. Start the BigFix client by running the command:
    /etc/init.d/besclient start
