OCS agent without installing

Hi - Can we copy the ocs inventory agent package on any host, run it without installing it to send just the report to server?

I tried the below command after copying the unix agent,
#./ocsinventory-agent -s http://ocsinvserver.example.com/ocsinventory --basevardir=/var/lib/ocsinventory-agent

and got the below error

Failed to load Ocsinventory::Agent, Can't locate Ocsinventory/Agent.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 .) at (eval 1) line 1.

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at (eval 1) line 1.

Any help is greatly appreciable!


you can run the agent directly for its source directory with --devlib

You have the possibility to generate a standalone unified agent. In tools directory you'll find a shell script named standalone.sh. To build this an internet connection is necessary but not mandatory.

I tried ./standalone.sh but it failed:

[user@centos7 tools]$ ./standalone.sh

            my $VERSION=$session->get_request ( -varbindlist => [ $snmp_sysProductVersion] );;
