Installing SnapCenter Plug-ins Package for Linux on multiple remote hosts using cmdlets

If you want to install SnapCenter Plug-ins Package for Linux on multiple hosts at one time, you can do so by using the Install-SmHostPackage PowerShell cmdlet.

Before you begin

You must be logged in to SnapCenter as a domain user with local administrator rights on each host on which you want to install the plug-in package.

Steps

  1. Launch PowerShell.
  2. From the Snap Creator Server command prompt, enter the following, and then enter your credentials: Open-SMConnection
  3. From the command prompt, enter the following: Install-SmHostPackage -skipprecheck
    You use the -skipprecheck option when you have already installed the plug-ins manually and do not want to validate whether the host meets the requirements to install the plug-in.
    You can enter the Install-SmHostPackage command and options, as shown in the following example:
    Install-SmHostPackage -HostNames @("10.231.72.165","10.231.72.99") 
    -ApplicationCode SCO -FilesystemCode SCU -RunAsName SmoPlugin -skipprecheck
    hostnames
    Specifies the list of hosts on which you want to install the available plug-ins. If possible, use the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) because SnapCenter relies on the proper DNS configuration. You must separate host names with a comma. Using quotations is recommended.
    ApplicationCode
    Specifies the code of the plug-in you that you want to install. For Plug-in for Oracle Database, enter SCO.
    FilesystemCode
    Specifies the file system code for the plug-in you want to install. For Plug-in for Oracle Database, enter SCU.
  4. Enter your Run As credentials for remote installation.
