How to configure Zabbix client on Linux server (Debian like)

Install Zabbix agent daemon into your system

apt-get install zabbix-agent

then change in file /etc/zabbix/zabbix_agentd.conf three parameters:

Server=IP of Zabbix Server
ServerActive=IP of Zabbix Server
Hostname=use the FQDN of the node where the agent runs


Do not forget to allow zabbix in your firewall rules. Zabbix agent listens on port 10050 TCP.

Then simple restart agent

service zabbix-agent restart

Thats all.
