Sun OpenSSO Enterprise Policy Agent 3.0 Guide for Apache Tomcat 6.0

Compatibility and Coexistence for the Tomcat 6.0 Version 3.0 Agent

Compatibility With Access Manager 7.1 and Access Manager 7 2005Q4

Sun Java System Access Manager 7.1 and Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 are compatible with version 3.0 policy agents. However, because Access Manager does not support centralized agent configuration, a version 3.0 agent deployed with Access Manager must store its configuration data locally in the and files.

For both configurations, the file on the server where the agent is deployed contains the information required for the agent to start and initialize itself.

Coexistence With Version 2.2 Policy Agents

OpenSSO Enterprise supports both version 3.0 and version 2.2 agents in the same deployment. The version 2.2 agents, however, must continue to store their configuration data locally in their respective file. Because the version 2.2 agent configuration data is local to the agent, OpenSSO Enterprise centralized agent configuration is not supported for version 2.2 agents. To configure a version 2.2 agent, you must continue to edit the agent's file.

The OpenSSO Enterprise Console allows you to create and configure a version 2.2 agent profile under Access Control, realm-name, Agents, 2.2 Agents.

For information about version 2.2 agents, see the following documentation collection:
