The JBoss Application Server 4.x/5.x agent uses an agent profile to communicate with OpenSSO Enterprise server. You can create an agent profile using any of these three methods:
Allow the agentadmin program to create the agent profile during installation when you run the --custom-install option. The program prompts you for this information:
Agent profile name and path to the agent profile password file
Agent administrator name and path to the agent administrator password file
Use the OpenSSO Enterprise Console.
Use the ssoadm command-line utility with the create-agent subcommand. For more information about the ssoadm command, see the Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Administration Reference.
Login into the OpenSSO Enterprise Administration Console as amAdmin.
Click Access Control, realm-name, Agents, and then J2EE.
Under Agent, click New.
In the Name field, enter the name for the new agent profile. For example: JBossAgentProfile
Enter and confirm the Password.
Important: This password must be the same password that you enter in the agent profile password file that you specify when you run the agentadmin program to install the agent.
In the Server URL field, enter the OpenSSO Enterprise server URL.
For example: http://opensso-host.example.com:port-number/opensso
In the Agent URL field, enter the URL for the agent application (agentapp).
For example: http://agent-host.example.com:port-number/agentapp
The agentapp is a housekeeping application used by the agent for notifications and other functions such as cross domain single sign-on (CDSSO) support.
The console creates the agent profile and displays the J2EE Agent page again with a link to the new agent profile, JBossAgentProfile.
To do additional configuration for the agent profile, click this link to display the Edit agent page. For information about the agent configuration fields, see the Console online Help. Also, see the readme.txt file for information about configuring the agent profile.
If you prefer, you can also use the ssoadm command-line utility to edit the agent profile. For more information, see the Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Administration Reference.
Make a note of the values you specify for the agent profile, such as the Server URL and Agent URL. You will need this information when you install the agent using the agentadmin program.
