Configuring Agent Relays
After you have installed an agent relay and detected it as needed, you can change the configuration as needed for your implementation.
The full set of options are set for agent relays at the time of installation. You can modify some, but not all, of the options of the agent relays remotely from the user interface. These can be changed only if the agent relay is online.
To change agent relay settings that cannot be changed through the user
interface, edit the
agentrelay.properties file located in the
relay_installation\conf directory. See
Agent Relay Installation Options.
To edit an agent relay:
Ensure that the agent relay is installed and is online.
Select the Agent Relays tab.
Select the agent relay.
View and change the agent relay information as follows:
Name of the agent relay. This field can be edited only if the agent relay is online.
Remote hostname or IP address the server will use to connect to the agent relay. This field can be edited only for agent relays that are online and have Server Initiated selected.
View only. Remote port used to communicate over JMS protocol.
Select this if you want to ensure that the server initiates HTTP communication for requests over a given size. See Server-initiated HTTP Communication Using Agent Relays.
Caution: Agent relays for version 5.1.5 that are configured with Server Initiated selected are compatible only with Deployment Automation servers version 5.1.5 and later. If you attempt to connect a version 5.1.5 agent relay that has Server Initiated selected to a server earlier than version 5.1.5, the agents connected through the agent relay will not be in Online status.
