Install the Advanced Server Access server agent on Red Hat (RHEL), Amazon Linux, or Alma Linux

To install the Advanced Server Access server agent:

  1. Add the RPM key.

    sudo rpm --import

  2. To access the artifacts create a /etc/yum.repos.d/oktapam-stable.repo file. Replace PLATFORM-KEY with the appropriate platform name; for example, amazonlinux, rhel, alma, or fedora. Replace RELEASE-VERSION with the appropriate major version of the OS; for example, 7, 8, and 9 (do not include minor version).

    [oktapam-stable] name=Okta PAM Stable - PLATFORM-KEY RELEASE-VERSION baseurl=$basearch gpgcheck=1 repo_gpgcheck=1 enabled=1 gpgkey=

  3. Run sudo dnf makecache and accept the new GPG key.

    If you get 404 errors, make sure the RELEASE-VERSION in step 2 above is being replaced with a supported version and only includes the major version. For example, for RedHat 8.6, replace RELEASE-VERSION with 8 .

  4. Install the server tools package, which includes the agent. If you don't have the dnf package manager you can use yum.

    sudo dnf install scaleft-server-tools

The sftd daemon should start automatically. Check the newest sftd log under /var/log/sftd/ to verify that the daemon is running.
