AppMon 6.5 linux installation, zip instead of jar


I would like to install an AppMon V6.5 on the Ubuntu linux server of our Dev team. For the previous appMon version there was a .jar full package file present, this to install the AppMon server for example. As from the V6.5 the full package is a .zip file, while the download page still mentions 'Use the command "java -jar installpackage.jar" to install the jar packages. Untar the .tar file then execute the unpacked .sh file to install the web server agent.'. If i open the zip there is a file YouShouldNotUnzippedMe' with the content 'Run the Installer by using the following command: java -jar dynatrace-'

I was wondering about the linux install procedure for the V6.5? May be i miss something quite obvious here 🙂

Thx for the info.

Hi Steven,

Just rename the file to .jar

As some proxies and security settings block jar files from being downloaded it is renamed to .zip (as a jar file and a zip file is more or less the same anyway).

Kind regards,
