Before you begin

Step 1: Download the Core

  2. Click Add Core
  3. Click your operating system (Amazon Linux, CentOS, and Redhat). 
  4. Locate and copy your license key. You will need this key later in the installation process. 
  5. Download and execute the armor-agent.deb file. 

Step 2: Install the Core

  1. Run the following command: 

    Install Agent
    yum install armor-agent.rpm

    Configure Agent
    sed -i -r 's/license=<license key>/' /etc/armor/armor.cfg
  3. Run the following command: 

    Start Agent
    service armor-agent start
