Due to the high number of possible hardware and software configurations, users may run into various faulty situations. To be able to properly identify the causes for these reported situations, the technical support team needs some pieces of information regarding the operating system and Bitdefender's presence on the respective computer.

To gather the information needed, follow these steps:

  1. Save the script to your server:

    • From a console environment: wget http://www.bitdefender.com/files/KnowledgeBase/file/bdsysinfo.sh

  2. Login as root or become root using the su command (where available).

  3. Go to the directory where you have downloaded the script file and execute it with one of these commands:

    sh bdsysinfo.sh


    sudo sh bdsysinfo.sh

The script will start gathering information and display its progress. The report will be saved as an archive called bdsysinfo.tar.gz.
