agentadmin command

The agentadmin command manages Java Agent installation. It requires a Java runtime environment. The command supports the following options:

--install

Installs a new agent instance.

Usage: agentadmin --install [--useResponse | --saveResponse file-name] [--acceptLicence]

Before installation, shut down the agent container. If a service on an agent URL is responding, the installer stops with an error.

When the command is used without options, the installation process prompts for the following information:

  • Confirmation that you have read and accepted the software license agreement.

  • Information about the container installation.

  • The URL of the AM instance. The agent confirms that it can log in to AM by using the profile name and password provided during installation. If unsuccessful, the installation stops with an error.

  • The URL of the agent instance. The agent confirms that it can access the host and port of the URL. If the port is busy, it prompts the user to stop the container.

  • The agent profile name in AM.

  • The AM realm containing the agent profile.

  • The path to the file containing the agent password.

    --useResponse

    Run in silent mode by specifying all the responses in the file-name file. When this option is used, agentadmin runs in non-interactive mode.

    --saveResponse

    Save all the supplied responses in a response file specified by file-name.

    --acceptLicense

    Suppress the license agreement prompt. Specifying this option indicates that you have read and accepted the terms stated in the license.
