Sun Java System Access Manager Policy Agent 2.2 Guide for IBM WebSphere Portal Server 6.0

Summary of the Agent Installation

At the end of the installation process, the installation program prints the status of the installation along with the installed J2EE agent information. The information that the program displays can be very useful. For example, the program displays the agent instance name, which is required when configuring a remote instance. The program also displays the location of specific files, which can be of great importance. In fact, you might want to view the installation log file once the installation is complete, before performing the post-installation steps as described in Chapter 4, Post-Installation Tasks for the IBM WebSphere Portal Server 6.0 Policy Agent.

The location of directories displayed by the installer are specific. However, throughout this guide and specifically in Summary of Agent Installation shown in this section, PolicyAgent-base is used to describe the directory where the distribution files are stored for a specific J2EE agent.

The following example serves as a quick description of the location of the J2EE agent base directory (PolicyAgent-base) of Policy Agent 2.2 for IBM WebSphere Portal Server 6.0.

Agent Audit directory location:
Agent Debug directory location:
