Zenoss Server

Note: Zenoss does not like special characters in the MySQL root password.

# Install necessary packages; MySQL and net-snmp are required  
yum -y install mysql-server net-snmp net-snmp-utils gmp libgomp libgcj liberation-fonts  
  
# Configure MySQL  
  
# Install Zenoss  
mkdir zenoss.temp; cd zenoss.temp  
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/zenoss/zenoss-3.2.0.el5.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh zenoss-3.2.0.el5.i386.rpm  
service zenoss start

This sets up everything. Go get some tea; this shall take a while. Then navigate to http://<FQDN>:8080 to finish setup. This book is your friend, friend.
