Create a valid agent profile in Access Manager Console if one has not already been created.
For information on how to create an agent profile, see Creating a J2EE Agent Profile.
To avoid a misconfiguration of the agent, ensure that you know the exact ID and password used to create the agent profile. You must enter the agent profile password correctly in the next step and you must enter the agent profile ID correctly when installing the agent.
Ensure that this file is located in a secure directory of your choice. You will refer to this file during the agent installation process.
With the agent profile password in this file, stored in a secure location, you are not required to enter sensitive information in the console. A valid password file can have only one line that contains the agent profile password.
