How to install Zabbix Agent 3 in Debian 10?

Zabbix is an Open-source monitoring tool used to monitor the health of servers, networks and other IT units. Zabbix provides a web-based GUI to monitor your device Reports. Users can also set a mailing system to receive Reports as well.

If your Internal Zabbix Monitoring System is on Version 3.0, in this case, you will need to install Zabbix repo with version 3 or Zabbix agent will not connect with Zabbix Server.

Following are the steps to install Zabbix Agent 3 on Debian 10 (Buster).

 

  1. Download the Zabbix Repository using wget command from Zabbix Website. We will install Zabbix agent version 3 for Debian 10 (Buster) using below Commands.

    # wget https://repo.zabbix.com/zabbix/3.0/debian/pool/main/z/zabbix-release/zabbix-release_3.0-2+buster_all.deb
    # dpkg -i zabbix-release_3.0-2+buster_all.deb




  2. Create a File named preference at location /etc/apt/ and add the below lines. It will prevent the Zabbix repo to be upgraded from 3.0 to 4.0 while running apt-get update. If you don't do this, Zabbix repo will be upgraded automatically to 4.0 and you will face issues in the connectivity of your Zabbix server.

    Package: zabbix-*
    Pin: origin repo.zabbix.com						
    Pin-Priority: 900
  3. Run the update command.

    # sudo apt-get update
  4. Install Zabbix Agent.

    # sudo apt-get install zabbix-agent

          Zabbix Agent is now installed. We will proceed to configure Zabbix agent on your server.

  1. Configure the Zabbix agent using the below steps. Go to file /etc/zabbix/zabbix_agentd.conf and need to update Zabbix server IP address and hostname as per the below images.

    # sudo nano /etc/zabbix/zabbix_agentd.conf
    

           

          

          

  1. Restart your Zabbix Agent service.

    # sudo systemctl enable zabbix-agent 
    # sudo systemctl start zabbix-agent

You have successfully installed Zabbix Agent version 3.0 on Debian 10 (Buster).
