How to install the Zabbix agent version 3.0 on Debian 9 (strech)?

Zabbix is an Open-source monitoring tool use 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 9 (stretch).

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