Xopero ONE Agent Installation On Linux

Xopero ONE agent is a component responsible for backup, restoration, and all the data-processing operations like compression and encryption. This article describes how to install the Xopero ONE agent application on a Linux-based system. To make sure that your Linux system is supported by Xopero ONE product check:

Agent setup

Download the agent installer(bash script) to your Linux system and grant execute permission to the owner user or group of the file. To grant the permission perform the chmod command:

chmod +x xoperoclient.sh

After that, run the script using:

./xoperoclient.sh or bash xoperoclient.sh

The script should be started with administrative privileges, due to that fact it may be required to use the sudo command along with it, the same as in the example above.

The installer will display End-User License Agreement, which has to be accepted to proceed.

Press the Yes button to accept the agreement and proceed. On the last step of the setup process, the installer will ask about the Xopero ONE Management Service address.

Enter the IP address in the Address field- including protocol and port - and click the OK button.

This is it, the agent installation is done. Open the Xopero ONE web panel to activate the agent and proceed to protect your data.

Possible issues

Problem: The agent is not visible in Activate agent section after installation. Solution: If you're working with RedHat-based systems like Fedora, CentOS, or RHEL and the agent is not visible after the proper installation process, then it may mean that some of the required components are missing. Install OpenSSL and update certificates with the following commands:

yum install -y openssl11.x86_64 ca-certificates
update-ca-trust extract

After that restart your Linux system or just restart the Xopero ONE agent service using:

systemctl restart XoperoONEBackupAgent.service

Now you should be able to see your device awaiting activation.
