Install the Mac Agent

The traditional way of installing the Software Vulnerability Manager Agent is as a daemon (similar to local service in Windows) as it will operate under the Mac OS X LocalSystem account.

Install the binary by using the Mac Terminal services as follows:

1. Open Terminal:
sudo su
Pass: (Administrator password)
whoami (should be root)
2. Browse to the directory where you have placed the csia binary file:
chmod +x csia
Type the following command to install the Agent: sudo ./csia -i
Type the following command to launch the Agent scan: ./csia –c

The Agent shows in the Software Vulnerability Manager console approximately 15 minutes after the installation.

Use the “-h” switch to see a full list of parameters supported by the Agent.
