The instructions at https://support.panorama9.com/hc/en-us/articles/203568828-Installing-the-P9-agent-on-Linux didn’t work for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Server, although the package appears to work well by installing using the process below.

Load the cert.pfx from from the P9 portal onto the server (/var/tmp in the example below), and install the agent as follows:

wget http://changes.panorama9.com/linux/p9-agent_latest.deb
dpkg -i p9-agent_latest.deb
apt-get -f install --yes
apt-get install haveged --yes
cp /var/tmp/cert.pfx /home/p9/cert.pfx
apt-get install libswitch-perl --yes
apt-add-repository 'deb http://changes.panorama9.com/linux/deb/ granny main'
apt-get install p9-agent
systemctl is-enabled p9agent
systemctl restart p9agent

Checking the status of the agent using systemctl status p9agent should provide something like:

p9agent.service - LSB: Panorama9 agent
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/p9agent; bad; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: active (exited) since Mon 2018-10-01 10:17:00 AEST; 6s ago
     Docs: man:systemd-sysv-generator(8)
  Process: 5668 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/p9agent start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
