You must follow certain security best practices while using user accounts.

  • For a silent installation, remove any credentials and server certificate thumbprints that were stored in the AGENT_HOME/conf/agent.properties file.

  • Use a vRealize Operations Manager user account reserved specifically for End Point Operations Management agent registration. For more information, see the topic called "Roles and Privileges" in vRealize Operations Manager in the vRealize Operations Manager Help.

  • Disable the vRealize Operations Manager user account that you use for agent registration after the installation is over. You must enable the user’s access for agent administration activities. For more information, see the topic called Configuring Users and Groups in vRealize Operations Manager in the vRealize Operations Manager Help.

  • If a system that runs an agent is compromised, you can revoke the agent certificate using the vRealize Operations Manager user interface by removing the agent resource. See the section called Revoking an Agent for more detail.
