In the agent.properties file, properties relating to communication between the End Point Operations Management agent and the vRealize Operations Manager server are inactive by default. You must activate them.

Procedure

  1. In the agent.properties file, locate the following section.
    ## Use the following to automate agent setup 
    ## using these properties. 
    ## 
    ## If any properties do not have values specified, the setup 
    ## process prompts for their values. 
    ## 
    ## If the value to use during automatic setup is the default, use the string *default* as the value for the option.
  2. Remove the hash tag at the beginning of each line to activate the properties.
    #agent.setup.serverIP=localhost
    #agent.setup.serverSSLPort=443
    #agent.setup.serverLogin=username
    #agent.setup.serverPword=password 
    

    The first time that you start the End Point Operations Management agent, if agent.setup.serverPword is inactive, and has a plain text value, the agent encrypts the value.

  3. (Optional) : Remove the hash tag at the beginning of the line #agent.setup.serverCertificateThumbprint= and provide a thumbprint value to activate pre-approval of the server certificate.
