Announcements / signing key update
« on: March 28, 2020, 09:46:02 pm »

Couple of days ago signing key expired on I've renewed the key, but it have to be updated manually.

If keys was installed by package netxms-release (suggested way as future updates will be handled automatically):

dpkg -i netxms-release-latest.deb

If key was installed with apt-key:

apt-key del 179C0A80CDFADDB1
wget -O - | apt-key add -


Today we incidentally pushed pre-release build from 3.0 branch to a stable repository for Ubuntu Xenial and Bionic (amd64 only) and this version was available for couple of hours. We are really sorry for this mistake.

Repository is rolled back.

If you upgraded your system, you now have two options - continue to use v3 (which is not yet released as stable, but quite a lot of our customers use it in production environment already) or revert to pre-upgrade backup.

If you'll decide to use v3, management console is available here:

Announcements / Debian packages for version 2.0-M3 and up
« on: April 15, 2015, 05:29:41 am »

Starting from version 2.0-M3 we have changed build process and structure of deb packages.
Direct upgrade from any previous version of the package should be possible (and was tested in few test environments) but I recommend to purge old version first.

WARNING: backup configuration files and content of /usr/share/netxms, especially if you have any custom images in image library.

New packages:
  • netxms-base – common package
  • netxms-agent – agent, require base
  • netxms-client – command line tools (nxpush, nxevent, nxsms, nxalarm)
  • netxms-server – server package, require base, agent and ONE of DB drivers
  • netxms-dbdrv-pgsql – driver for PosgreSQL
  • netxms-dbdrv-mysql – driver for MySQL
  • netxms-dbdrv-oracle – driver for Oracle
  • netxms-dbdrv-sqlite3 – driver for Sqlite3
  • netxms-dbdrv-odbc – driver for unixODBC/FreeTDS

Server depends on one of DB drivers, by default its sqlite3.
For example:
Code: [Select]
root@debian-7:~# apt-get install netxms-server
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
  netxms-agent netxms-base netxms-dbdrv-sqlite3

However, if specific driver is installed with server, default (sqlite) will be ignored:
Code: [Select]
root@debian-7:~# apt-get install netxms-server netxms-dbdrv-pgsql
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
  libpq5 netxms-agent netxms-base

MAJOR CHANGE: default data directory for both agent and server changed to /var/lib/netxms.
If you have any custom content in /usr/share/netxms/ (most likely in images/, if you use image library) – move it to new location.


Oracle driver require manual installation of either Instant Client, or full Oracle Client.
Code was built with instantclient 11.2, located in /opt/instantclient_11_2
If is located somewhere else, additional library search path should be set

Right now only amd64 packages are published, i386 will be available in next couple of days.

Announcements / New Debian repository

Out repository now migrated to
Unlike old one, all packages are signed and older versions of each package available as well.

Detailed setup instructions available on this Wiki page:

Packages for lenny and squeeze are migrated as well, but unmaintained – new NetXMS versions are built only for wheezy.

Announcements / NxShell
« on: January 25, 2013, 01:36:42 pm »

After couple of requests we made a  small tool to help automate operations, which are currently available only thru user interface or java api. In essence, it's wrapper around Jython (Java implementation of Python) and NetXMS API, with some glue in between to make it easier to use.
