How to pass a proxy address during OneAgent installation on Linux

The OneAgent installer recognizes the --set-proxy (recommended since version 1.185) or PROXY parameters. The value of these parameters is the proxy server address. Add the port number following a colon, for example 172.1.1.128:8080. For an authenticating proxy you can specify username and password like this username:password@172.1.1.128:8080 where both username and password need to be URL encoded. We also support IPv6 addresses.

Parameter names are case sensitive, so use ALL CAPS for parameter names.

Passing a proxy address to the installer

Let's say you're running an openSUSE server, you've downloaded your OneAgent installer to the /tmp directory and your proxy IP address is 10.1.1.5. In such a scenario you would begin the installation like this:

cd /tmp
chmod +x Dynatrace-Agent-Linux-0.5.0-20140217-175809.sh
su -c 'Dynatrace-Agent-Linux-0.5.0-20140217-175809.sh --set-proxy=10.1.1.5'

Change proxy after installation

If you need to change the proxy address after installation, use --set-proxy in the OneAgent command-line interface.
