The Common Agent Container is a stand-alone Java program that implements a container for Java management applications. This program provides a management infrastructure that is designed for Java Management Extensions (JMX) and Java Dynamic Management Kit (Java DMK) based management functionality. The software is installed by the SUNWcacaort package and resides in the /usr/lib/cacao directory.
Typically, the container is not visible.
However, there are two instances when you might need to interact with the container daemon:
In the event that another application attempts to use a network port that is reserved for the Common Agent Container.
In the event that a certificate store is compromised. If this conflict occurs, you might have to regenerate the Common Agent Container certificate keys.
For information about how to troubleshoot these problems, see Troubleshooting Common Agent Container Problems in the Solaris OS in System Administration Guide: Advanced Administration.
