ProcedureTo Generate a State File for a J2EE Agent Installation

To generate a state file for a J2EE agent installation , perform the following:

  1. Change to the following directory:


    This directory contains the agentadmin program, which is used for installing a J2EE agent and for performing other tasks. For more information on the agentadmin program, see Key Features and Tasks Performed With the J2EE agentadmin Program.

  2. Issue the following command:

    ./agentadmin --install --saveResponse filename

    An option that saves all of your responses to installation prompts in a state file.


    Represents the name that you choose for the state file.

  3. Perform the installation as described in Chapter 3, Installing Policy Agent 2.2 for IBM WebSphere Portal Server

    Your answers to the prompts are recorded in the state file. When the installation is complete, the state file is created in the same directory where the installation program is located.

    Note –

    When generated, a state file will have read permissions for all users. However, because the state file contains clear text passwords, the best practice is for you to change the file permissions to restrict read and write access to the user root.
