IBM UrbanCode Deploy - Where do your agents come from ?
I had a bit of a brain fade today, trying to work out from where to download the Agent code for IBM UrbanCode Deploy (UCD).
I'm using the latest UCD 6.2.6, and have the server up-and-running.
Now I want to pop an agent onto a target box ….
I looked at the downloads on the IBM website ( as an IBMer, we have an internal equivalent of Passport Advantage ), so I was looking at this: -
IBM UrbanCode Deploy 6.2.6 Multiplatform Multilingual eAssembly (CJ2BYML)
which includes: -
IBM UrbanCode Deploy 6.2.6 Multiplatform Multilingual (CNM8JML )
which I'd used to install the UCD Server: -
and this: -
IBM UrbanCode Cloud Agent Packages 6.2.6 Multiplatform Multilingual (CNM8PML )
about which I wasn't so sure ( apart from that it's a 2 GB download ! )
Thankfully, the IBM Knowledge Centre came to my rescue: -
which said, in part: -
so I hit up my UCD Server: -
to get this: -
I grabbed the URL of the Agent: -
and pulled this onto the box: -
wget --no-check-certificate https://ucd.uk.ibm.com:8443/tools/ibm-ucd-agent.zip
and installed the agent: -
so that's all good then :-)
