Access Manager 7.1 and Access Manager 7 2005Q4 are compatible with version 3.0 policy agents. However, because Access Manager 7.1 and Access Manager 7 2005Q4 do not support centralized agent configuration, a version 3.0 agent deployed with Access Manager must store its configuration data locally in the OpenSSOAgentBootstrap.properties and OpenSSOAgentConfiguration.properties files. The OpenSSOAgentBootstrap.properties file contains the information required for the agent to start and initialize itself.
A version 3.0 agent automatically detects the host server it is accessing. In the case of Access Manager 7.1 or Access Manager 7 2005Q4, a version 3.0 agent will switch to local mode and use the properties from the agent's OpenSSOAgentConfiguration.properties file.
