After you have installed anEndpoint Operations Management agent, you can use it to add encrypted values to the agent.properties file to enable silent installation.

About this task

For example, to specify the user password, you can run ./bin/ep-agent.sh set-property agent.setup.serverPword serverPasswordValue to add the following line to the agent.properties file.

agent.setup.serverPword = ENC(4FyUf6m/c5i+RriaNpSEQ1WKGb4y+Dhp7213XQiyvtwI4tMlbGJfZMBPG23KnsUWu3OKrW35gB+Ms20snM4TDg==)

The key that was used to encrypt the value is saved in AgentHome/conf/agent.scu. If you encrypt other values, the key that was used to encrypt the first value is used.

Prerequisites

Verify that the Endpoint Operations Management agent can access AgentHome/conf/agent.scu. Following the encryption of any agent-to-server connection properties, the agent must be able to access this file to start.

Procedure

Open a command prompt and run ./bin/ep-agent.sh set-property agent.setup.propertyName propertyValue.

Results

The key that was used to encrypt the value is saved in AgentHome/conf/agent.scu.

What to do next

If your agent deployment strategy involves distributing a standard agent.properties file to all agents, you must also distribute agent.scu. See Install Multiple Endpoint Operations Management Agents Simultaneously.
