SCX install issue: Agent installation failed.

You are getting this error when deploying an agent:


Failed to allocate resource of type random data: Failed to get random data - not enough entropy


My solution:
At first remove the RPM and files:
  1. rpm -e scx
  2. rm -rf /etc/opt/microsoft/scx
Do this before discovering:
  1. rm -f /dev/random
  2. mknod -m 644 /dev/random c 1 9
  3. chown root:root /dev/random
Then deploy the agent using the wizard.
After that change the settings above again:
  1. rm -f /dev/random
  2. mknod -m 644 /dev/random c 1 8
  3. chown root:root /dev/random

SCX install issue: Could not transfer the discovery script. (4)

And another issue like that...

Transferring file: C:\Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007\AgentManagement\UnixAgents\GetOSVersion.sh to location: /tmp/scx-uxsuusvc/

Check if SFTP is configured correctly!
