Using Debian packages to install NSH or the RSCD agent

You can use the Debian package installer to install the BMC Server Automation Network Shell (NSH) or the RSCD agent on Debian and Ubuntu platforms.

The NSH installer installs the RSCD agent in addition to the Network Shell. Use the RSCD installer only if you do not want to install the Network Shell. The installers for the RSCD agent and Network Shell are exclusive. You can install either the RSCD agent or you can install the Network Shell with the agent.

By default, BMC Server Automation installation provides supported installers in the BBSA<version>-RSCDAgents.zip and BBSA<version>-NSHBundle.zip packages. For more information about downloading the NSH or RSCD agent debian packages, see Downloading the installation files.

For a list of platforms that the Debian package installer supports, see "Supported platforms for native installers" under Supported platforms for version 8.6.
