You should use the Install-SmHostPackage PowerShell cmdlet to install the SnapCenter Plug-ins Package for Linux or SnapCenter Plug-ins Package for AIX on multiple hosts.

What you will need

You should 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. On the SnapCenter Server host, establish a session using the Open-SmConnection cmdlet, and then enter your credentials.

  3. Install the SnapCenter Plug-ins Package for Linux or SnapCenter Plug-ins Package for AIX using the Install-SmHostPackage cmdlet and the required parameters.

    You can 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.

    The precheck script does not validate the plug-in port firewall status if it is specified in the firewall reject rules.
  4. Enter your credentials for remote installation.

The information regarding the parameters that can be used with the cmdlet and their descriptions can be obtained by running Get-Help command_name. Alternatively, you can also refer to the SnapCenter Software Cmdlet Reference Guide.
