After you issue the agentadmin command and accept the license agreement (if necessary) the installation program appears, prompting you for information.
The steps in the installation program are displayed in this section in an example interaction. Your answers to prompts can differ slightly or greatly from this example depending upon your specific deployment. In the example, most of the defaults have been accepted. This example is provided for your reference and does not necessarily indicate the precise information you should enter.
The following list provides key points about the installation program.
Each step in the installation program includes an explanation that is followed by a more succinct prompt.
For most of the steps you can type any of the following characters to get the results described:
Type the question mark to display Help information for that specific step.
Type the left arrow symbol to go back to the previous interaction.
Type the exclamation point to exit the program.
Most of the steps provide a default value that can be accepted or replaced. If a default value is correct for your site, accept it. If it is not correct, enter the correct value.
The following list provides information about specific prompts in the installation. Often the prompt is self explanatory. However, at other times you might find the extra information presented here to be very helpful. This extra information is often not obvious. Study this section carefully before issuing the agentadmin --install command.
After you have completed all the steps, a summary of your responses appears followed by options that allow you to navigate through those responses to accept or reject them.
When the summary appears, note the agent instance name, such as agent_001. You might be prompted for this name during the configuration process.
About the options, the default option is 1, Continue with Installation.
If you are satisfied with the summary, choose 1 (the default).
If you want to edit input from the last interaction, choose 2.
If you want to edit input starting at the beginning of the installation program, choose 3.
If you want to exit the installation program without installing, choose 4.
You can edit your responses as necessary, return to the options list, and choose option 1 to finally process your responses.
