Installing ybtools on Linux

Make sure that Java 1.8 64-bit is installed on your client system. See Installing the Java Runtime Environment.

Follow these steps to install the client tools on an Ubuntu, Debian, or CentOS Linux client system:

  1. Download the package for your client operating system from the SMC. Go to Configure > Drivers and Tools > Client Tools.
  2. If necessary, copy the downloaded package to the client system.
  3. From the client directory where the download file was copied, run the appropriate installation commands, which must be run as sudo:
    • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS: Install the ybtools package:
      $ sudo apt-get install ./ybtools-

      where the package name is ybtools- in this example.

    • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS: Install the ybtools package:
      $ sudo apt-get install ./ybtools-

      where the package name is ybtools- in this example.

    • RHEL/CentOS 6.0 or 7.0:
      1. Remove the old version of ybtools:
        $ sudo yum remove ybtools
      2. Install the new ybtools package:
        $ sudo yum install ybtools-

        where the package name is ybtools- in this RHEL 6.0 example.

For example, the following installation was run on an Ubuntu 16 client system:
$ sudo apt-get install ./ybtools-
