Our scratch server has been our Zenoss server since the beginning. Ran RHEL 5.5 and is now decommissioned. A new server has been deployed to only do the Zenoss service. It will run CentOS 6.10 (Final) and Zenoss 4.2.5, specifically the Community Edition last v4 version because I like to keep it simple. All we want is basic monitoring, alerts when nodes go down, and historical data.

# never understood why
rpm -e --nodeps mysql mysql-server mysql-libs mysql-devel postfix

# autodeploy
mkdir zenoss-deploy
cd zenoss-deploy/
wget -O auto.tar.gz
tar zxvf auto.tar.gz
cd zenoss-core-autodeploy-aeb5289/

# boink

At this point the script fails to find the core rpm file for my distro. Luckily, there are some folks maintaining the script for 4.2.5 and pointing to the new location. Shout out to Jane, much appreciated!

Download the zip file from Zenoss_4.2.5_core-autodeploy

# Stage the maintained autodeploy script

cp /root/ .
cp Zenoss_4.2.5_core-autodeploy-master/core-autodeploy.sh_update_20190110_zenup .

Then test out the installation.
