The purpose of this page is to cover the ins and outs of installing ZenPacks, eggs, etc.

Proposed contents:

  1. Overview of ZenPacks and /opt/zenoss/ZenPacks directory
  2. Importance of proper .egg file names (renamed eggs don't work)
  3. Don't put all your eggs in one basket (keep .egg files out of /opt/zenoss/ZenPacks -- zenpack install will try to create a directory of the same name inside /opt/zenoss)
  4. Don't forget to restart zenoss after install (so zenoss internals can be updated and patched.) Symptoms: device and component methods not existing.
  5. Using link mode
  6. Converting from "regular" mode to link mode in-place
  7. Include Convert a ZenPack to Development Mode and related tips.
