Article summary

The first step to start managing your Linux devices is to enroll them to Scalefusion. Once enrolled you can apply the policies remotely and perform device level actions. Follow the steps below to enroll your devices.


  1. Create an Enrollment configuration.
    1. Have the Enrollment URL handy.
  2. sudo/root access on the machine that needs to be enrolled.


  1. Open a terminal window on the device that you want to manage.
  2. Since we would be using the curl command, the first step is to make sure that curl is installed. At the terminal window type the command below and hit enter. When prompted, enter your sudo/root password and to confirm the installation type
    $ sudo apt install curl
  3. Now paste the Enrollment URL at the terminal that you copied from the enrollment configuration created as a prerequisite and hit enter key. When prompted, please enter the sudo/root password
    curl -fsSL https://app.scalefusion.com/cloud/nix/enrollment/SEME5mWVd0bnZaUT09Cg==/script.sh | sudo bash
  4. Step 3 would start downloading the Scalefusion agent and then install and complete the enrollment. Once the enrollment is complete you would see a message Enrollment Succeeded

On the Scalefusion Dashboard, if you navigate to the Devices section, the newly enrolled device would be listed along with the columns that you have configured for your devices view.

  1. Device Status: Locked indicates that the policies are actively, Unlocked indicates that the policies are relaxed. This field also displays the last connected time.
  2. For Linux devices, Scalefusion displays the OS Code name along with the name of the device in the Device Name column.
