Provide option for alternative installation directories on Operations Console for agent installation on unix/linux servers other than /tmp/

Currently default directory for agent installation on Unix/Linux servers using Operations Console is /tmp/scx-username. However, if /tmp directory is hardened due to security reasons for unix/linux servers on customer environment, they will have to manually install scom agent on unix/linux servers and does not have an alternative to install the agent from Operations console on other directory.

    Since RHEL 5, mounting /tmp with the noexec flag has been a standard server hardening step. It is one required by CIS Benchmarks.
