In secure UNIX environments there is a reluctance to give out the UNIX root account password due to the security vulnerabilities it presents in modern network environments. This document goes through the installation screens of the CA Client Automation agents. This document assumes the proper edits to the /etc/sudoers file have been done to allow non root user to run sudo. (see notes under additional information)
